A few months ago, Adrienne Page sent a beautiful wedding to me, and in her email she mentioned a new project she was working on, which I have been dying to share with you ever since, hence this new “Kathryn Loves” feature…
Yes, those are velvet photo albums. Hello GORGEOUS. They’re from Velvet Raptor, Adrienne’s line of albums and journals, and I love them. I think the design strikes a perfect balance of simple and rich – such clean lines paired with sumptuous velvet. And those colors! I want to buy one for my wedding photos, and I’m thinking dove gray, but I also love the pink lilac and sea green. Is it bad that I want all three? I could totally find a use for all of them…
Something I thought a lot about with my wedding was the idea of heirlooms, things that would stand the test of time both in their aesthetic and in their quality, and in my opinion, these albums are definitely heirloom objects (especially once our wedding photos are inside).
Wouldn’t these be perfect wedding gifts? I’d even love to give a small one in pink to a new mom.
Okay, so where can you find them? They’re available online at Velvet Raptor and Jenni Bick, as well as at Cursive in New York, and starting in the spring, you’ll be able to find them at BHLDN. Or you could enter to win one right here! Just take a look at the different options, then leave a comment here letting me know which album is your favorite (seriously, how are you going to pick just one of those colors?). You have until midnight on Friday, 2/18 to enter, and I’ll announce the randomly selected winner on Monday, 2/21 Friday, 2/25. The winner will get to choose between a guest journal in sea green or a small album in dove gray.

Oh, and photographers! If you’re going to be at WPPI, my dear friend Elizabeth Messina (who also happens to be a Snippet & Ink sponsor) will be giving away some pretties from Velvet Raptor at her session on Monday, 2/21 (she loves them as much as I do, and if anyone knows pretty it’s Elizabeth Messina).
