Hanging in Shauna and Chris’s home is a portrait of Shauna’s great grandparents on the stone bridge below Minnehaha Falls. They were their for their own honeymoon in the early 1900s, wearing fashionable hats and tailored suits. When Shauna and Chris decided to get married at Minnehaha Falls (in the Longfellow Gardens), they wanted to recreate this photo in their own wedding clothes, sitting on the stone bridge beneath Minnehaha Falls.
It is a gorgeous story, and I imagine the two photos, separated by about a century, hanging side by side on Shauna and Chris’s walls, so alike and so different at the same time.
I can’t imagine a better example of the power of preserving photography as a way to preserve our own histories to share with our great grand children.
SO I was thrilled to put together this wedding album with linen cover for them. We chose a stone colored fabric and a cameo photograph on the front of, what else, the two of them at Minnehaha Falls. This album is flush mount, which means that each of the pages is developed into the as a photograph (not press printed on top of the paper like a magazine) so that there is no reason it won’t be around in 100 years for their great grandchildren to enjoy.
