Bookish Vintage Modern Wedding: Wedding Book Stamp

We had a ton of books at our wedding. On the sign-in table, on all the guest tables as part of the centerpieces, and even our ring holder was a hollowed-out book (more on that later). To commemorate the day on their pages, we decided to have a stamp made for the books, so that we (and anyone down the line in the future, be it children, grandchildren, or other family) would know that the books had been there on our wedding day. For the wording, we finally decided on:

A Book of Love
From Sandra and Chris's Wedding
April 21, 2013      Austin, Texas

I searched around Etsy and other sites like Paper Source, but ultimately decided on a $19.99 self-inking address stamp (7/8 inches by 2 3/8 inches) from Staples. And it's perfect. Here are a few photos from the wedding and also of Chris inking up the title pages of a few books.
