From the Publisher
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.
