As you, the faithful readers of this blog, know- I’ve been pretty lax in updating posts for the past few months. But I do have a very good reason for my absence… So, I’ve been planning weddings in Paris for over 7 years now, and sharing my adventures through this blog for over five- and now I’m bringing the Paris wedding love to the masses! I’ve written a book called The Paris Wedding, published by Gibbs-Smith, and it will be hitting the shelves in Spring, 2013.
I can’t tell you how excited I am about this project. The book is basically an insider’s peek into my “little black book” of wedding and party planning in Paris. I’ve included the “ugly” (like the nuts and bolts on navigating the legal red-tape of marrying in France as a foreigner) as well as the “pretty” (personal shopping tours to the best boutiques for wedding dresses, wedding cakes, gifts, favors, and even your honeymoon trousseau) and all of the stops in-between.
I’ve been very lucky in that Paris is quickly becoming one of the hottest European destination wedding locations for stylish couples looking for a unique experience. But in today’s economy, a Parisian celebration is still out of reach for LOTS of couples. So, while this book is a sweet, handy, go-to guide for those planning a wedding or celebration IN Paris - it’s also an awesome look-book of ideas for brides wanting to bring that certain Frenchie je ne sais quoi to their local celebrations. With gorgeous photos of timeless scenery and stylish Real Parisian weddings, The Paris Wedding is filled with ideas and inspiration- each chapter overflowing with gorgeous photography and details to incorporate into any Parisian or Parisian-inspired wedding or event.
The book is available now for pre-order on Amazon.com and other online booksellers, and will be on bookshelves in the Spring. And while I have your ears, I want to offer a GINORMOUS thank you to all of the vendors, clients, family and friends who helped to make this dream possible. Next stop? Oprah, of course!
