We've all seen the traditional guest books and albums at weddings - the delicate ivory color, the padded covers, the gold pens. It can get a little predictable, which is why we absolutely love this twist on a classic guest book or photo album by Three Trees Bindery!
Located in Charlotte, North Carolina, designer Michelle Skiba creates unique guest books, photo albums and blank journals, and offers her creations in her Etsy shop, Three Trees Bindery. A small bookbinding studio specializing in wood covered books, albums and journals, Three Trees Bindery creates heirloom quality memory books that can be customized for your wedding or special event.
Using wood and other natural materials each book is hand-bound with high quality papers, Irish linen thread and exposed stitching. The wooden covers are crafted from cuts of black walnut, mahogany, cherry, maple and birch bark. The books can be personalized for your special occasion with engraving, monograms, carving or with names and a date, hand stamped on a silver, brass or copper plate. Elegant and full of character, these books are made to last a lifetime.
Just take a look at the images below and you'll see why we adore these extraordinary bindings!
