I am not a designer by trade, mostly I love making photographs! But there are just so many ways you can display a photo or photos, and I have been putting together some pretty designs for my brides and groom to decorate each of their personalized DVD covers for three years now.
I always try to use elements from each wedding and the couple's personality to design their covers. A lot of the time I'll use their flowers as helpful design hints and include the colors from their wedding in the cover to tie the whole event together. Here are some of my favorite designs that I have created for the 2009 weddings.
First there are the "modern" designs:

Awhile back I asked my brides which images they got for their wedding were their very favorites. Jessica from my July 11 wedding Ionia was the first to let me know what she thought! Jessica and Bill had a beautiful sunny day for their wedding, and they had one of the biggest wedding parties and most rocking reception of my whole wedding season! Here are her favorite photos from her wedding.
"This is my favorite because it looks so natural and you can tell how we feel just by looking at the pitcure! I love how it's in black and white because there is a while building (the church) in the background so it looks so natural. I absolutely loved my bouquet of flowers and they are in the foreground and can really be seen. The flowers are in color so you can see how pretty they are! It is just a beautiful picture that really is a worth 1,000 words! You have such a wonderful eye for this!!"
"I also like the picture of the whole wedding party in the church. It is a very basic picture, nothing out of the ordinary. However, we had such a big wedding party, I can't believe everyone looks so good it in, we got lucky there! The picture is very symmetical with the ushers in the back and the flower girl in the front. All the guys are on one side and the girls are on the other! The tall girls are down lower so they aren't sticking up (I had a girl that is 6'1'' in my wedding) so it looks perfect!"
"I love all my pictures, they all tell their own story! Each time I look at them it helps me relive my day! There is a great picture of my cake with the picture of my dad and I in the background that I absolutely love! Everything about the day was captured in those pictures! Thank you Jenna, for making it so memorable!!"
