'Seattle Bride' Editor Meg Bartley Celebrates Her Five-Year Wedding Anniversary With A Keepsake Album

My five-year wedding anniversary is coming up at the end of this month, and other than a few framed photos around the house, I still had never taken the time to sit down and plan out a wedding album to be printed and displayed, all these years later. Honestly, I just didn’t know where to start. My husband and I were lucky enough to have hundreds of photos (safely tucked away on a thumb drive!) from our 2014 nuptials, but picking which ones to include in an album and have everything laid out for printing kept falling to the end of my ever-long to-do list.

Enter Artifact Uprising. I’ve been a longtime fan of their products. I’ve used them for Christmas cards, calendars, gifting and more. The quality of the company's paper product, printing and execution is impeccable, and their clean, modern designs make for the perfect keepsakes: Classic, but minimalist, and sure to stand the test of time. When they reached out to share about their new design services and partnership with Zola, our team jumped at the chance to spread the word.

While they’ve offered gorgeous wedding albums and guest books for order for a while, Artifact Uprising stepped up their design services earlier this year, providing Wedding Design Services to engaged and newly wed couples. The offerings are perfect for brides-to-be or newlyweds who are just, well, busy with life, but still looking to get those precious engagement or wedding day memories in print for a guest book or album before the years fly by. Artifact Uprising recently teamed up with Zola, the fastest growing wedding company in the country, providing design services to registered Zola couples for free of charge (a $119 value) with the purchase of a wedding album or guest book.

The books -- which look gorgeous online, but are even better in person -- are completely customizable, from cover text and color, to spine print, to number of pages and more. After narrowing down my own wedding photos to about one hundred favorites, my Artifact Uprising designer laid everything out for me in a sample album online. The process was simple: I was able to check out two separate digital drafts, commenting on pages with requests for updates, or simply checking off pages that were perfect as is. After signing off, my album was printed, bound and shipped less than one week later. A gorgeous keepsake delivered straight to my doorstep, just in time to look back on those wedding day memories from five years ago. And let me tell you, checking that one off my list felt like quite the accomplishment. Almost as great as making it to five…
