ladies who are currently wedding planning…
y’all seriously need this book…like no joke.
“A fresh, modern take on wedding design perfect for today’s bride. Paige Appel and Kelly Harris started designing weddings in 2009, and their work immediately resonated with young brides and grooms: weddings in fields, art galleries, refurbished warehouses, vineyards, hip hotels, or farmhouses. Weddings that featured Mimolette and Mexican beer; fireside chats; succulents and wildflowers; funny jokes; farm-to-table dinners; recycling; offbeat photography; desert heat or mountain snow; salty cookies; pots of paint and confetti cannons. People, Real Simple, Daily Candy, and Design Sponge are just a few of the publications that responded to their addictive mix of old and new, vintage and modern. In this, their first book, Appel and Harris share ideas from the weddings they have designed, such as celebrations at a Palos Verdes farm (Red Hot Juleps, wildflowers galore, a mouthwatering “Sweets Stable”) and The Ace Hotel in Palm Springs (a bourbon-soaked retro cocktail hour, colossal balloons, and a marching band), all photographed here in detail. With their trademark wit, they walk the reader through planning their event, from vision statement and storyboard to color palette, stationery, signs and logos, centerpieces and bouquets, furnishings, linens, china and silver, aisle décor, menus, and more, providing hundreds of inspirational ideas in the process.”
