They met. Fell in love.  He proposed.  She said yes.  They picked a date. She fell in love with her dress. They chose their wedding cake flavor.

Their big day has arrived and you're invited!


Meet the Wedding Planners

The Bride Quartet series by Nora Roberts was the first time I read anything by her and I loved this series! Four friends who run a very successful and extensive wedding planning service plan weddings and fall in love while doing so.


Meet the Wedding Guests

All sorts of people are invited to the wedding, family and friends.  What an interesting mix of people who come to wish the bride and groom well.
