As our first couple up in our new series called #boundwithlove we couldn’t possibly be any more excited to introduce you to Paige and Blake Molina, who are using one of our vow books to celebrate their anniversary. They are a romantic couple- marrying on Valentines Day 2015, here in Atlanta, GA! And considering it is the week of Valentines day, we knew they’d be perfect to kick this series off with!

#Boundwithlove is a hashtag we started using on Instagram when tagging pictures of our journals. As, each one of our products are made + bound with lots of love for you to treasure for a lifetime! We decided to also turn this hashtag into a series for this blog, so we can share the stories behind the journals, albums and books we make + the homes they go to.

We are always so touched to hear our clients stories and decided it would be selfish to keep them to ourselves!

Paige is art teacher + photographer with a passion for living creatively. Her and her husband Blake share a home with their adorable Frenchie pup, Judy here in Atlanta, GA.  They love love, and they love each other, so we were so excited to send Paige + Blake one of our Vow Books to help them celebrate their one year anniversary and have them share their love story with us!

Read below what Paige has to say, and if you would like to share your love story with us too, please reach out to Courtney at Court@blueskypapers.com

“It all started late in the summer when Blake & I met at Piedmont Park in August 2013. He laughed at all of my jokes, so I knew he was something special! [wink]”

“He was so laid back & sweet- life finally made sense & was so easy. I think he officially became my boyfriend when he took me to the Sundial on one of our first few real dates.”

“We spent time drinking coffee, seeing movies, & going to church. The night I met his family- I knew I wanted to be with him forever!”

50th Wedding Anniversary Celebration Ideas

Friday, August 28th, 2015

Nothing makes us happier than when we receive a gust book order for a 50th wedding anniversary. Call us sentimental, but we love providing handmade keepsakes for our customers that help them celebrate a lifetime of love.

Otherwise known as a golden anniversary, a 50th anniversary is often celebrated by giving a gift of gold. Gold always seems to symbolize the height of wisdom and prosperity – what a beautiful way to look at marriage!

A while back, one of our own book binders, Grace, had the opportunity to honor her grandparents with a personalized, handmade photo album to help them celebrate their 50th Wedding Anniversary.

Grace chose our leather rustic photo album and personalized the cover in gold foil with their names and wedding date. Under the flap, she used our “fifty years” emblem for a special surprise when they open the album.

Nothing says 50 years like a gilded tablescape. We love these glitter and gold wedding invitations by Fox & Hound Paperie as well as this gold leaf foliage display for a 50th wedding anniversary party centerpiece.

50th Wedding Anniversary Gifts & Keepsakes

Fifty years of marriage is something that should be documented. We love the idea of creating a keepsake to help celebrate such a wonderful milestone.

If you’re having a vow renewal ceremony, our wedding vow books are a great way to showcase your original wedding vows as well as any new ones you want to share with your spouse after 50 wonderful years.

We also have our Fifty Years guest book for all your amazing friends and family members to write well wishes and cherished memories for you to enjoy for years to come.

We also love this DIY 50th anniversary chalkboard print from BecomingMartha. Not only does it make a classic and beautiful tribute for a 50th anniversary party, but it becomes a wonderful keepsake to display in your home after the party.
