Designing Your Artful, Modern, Crafty, Textured, Sophisticated Celebration
Author: Paige Appel
Publisher: Rizzoli International Publications
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 decor, menus, and more, providing hundreds of inspirational ideas in the process.
Creating a Celebration That Looks and Feels Like You

Publisher: Artisan Books
The secret to planning a deeply personal and meaningful wedding has nothing to do with budget. It’s about creating a celebration that reflects a couple’s core values. Translating those values is the work of Modern Wedding, an information-filled guide with hundreds of creative ideas and beautiful, inspiring photographs for readers to look at and say, “This feels like us.” The book unpacks every element of a wedding—stationery, attire, seating plans, flowers and tablescapes, food and drink, gifts—with examples that will appeal to couples who care about how things are made but are not overly influenced by trends. The emphasis is on natural surroundings, seasonal flowers and food, modern dresses, minimalist ceremony structures, and naked cakes. Photographs of real weddings—“case studies” like a destination fete in Tuscany, a house party in Brooklyn, and a New Agey revel in Kauai—show how all the pieces can come together into a unique and expressive whole. Extensive practical information and resources give readers access to all the help they need for their own unique celebration.

Category: Literary Criticism
Examines how and why marriage plots became the English novel's most popular form in the eighteenth century. This book will be of interest to students and researchers of eighteenth and early nineteenth-century English literature and culture as well as feminist literary history.
This novella is sequel to Bennibister. In that story, set in the Orkney Islands, a man searching for his emotional self finds it, only to have it plucked from him. A son remains as evidence of that passion and another woman enters his life. Can she match the love that went before ? How would I describe the Orkney Islands? "A woman, lying part submerged, bathing in a shallow sea of turquoise; her smooth rounded hills rising from the ocean, bringing forth an archipelago of islands in the blue water." This would be true. Yet this is the North of Britain, the real North where gales and rain lash the treeless landscape and the sea pounds the cliffs. This also would be true. Against this backdrop people make their lives here much as anywhere, they live, they die, they love, they give birth. They reach for things beyond themselves."The novellas are in sequence, Bennibister, The Wedding at Bennibister. The Third Norn (at Bennibister).
