Weddings Valentine Style : Rich Inspiration for Every Woman's Dream Day

0743497473


·
 
Book Description
Diann Valentine makes magic and weaves dreams. For more than a decade, she has produced inimitable celebrations of love for a host of top talents, as distinct as Lela Rochon and Antoine Fuqua, DeLeon and Gary Sheffield, and Kelis and Nas, in cities as different as Toledo, Ohio, and the Big Apple. "I'm definitely living up to my name," says Valentine. In Weddings Valentine Style, this unabashed romantic with a commitment to quality and a keen eye for excellence reminds readers that a classy, unforgettable wedding is not about merely serving up fine caviar and champagne but rather about envisioning the triumph of a stunning centerpiece composed of a single stem of dendrobium orchids rather than a crowd of carnations or mums. Ultimately, Valentine insists, "It's about making choices that speak to your own beat."...

Book Review
A Common Life is a trip back in time for fans of "the little town with the big heart." Somewhere between the second and third volumes of Jan Karon's Mitford Years series, dyed-in-the-wool bachelor Father Timothy Kavanagh and his next-door neighbor Cynthia Coppersmith tied the knot. The author left it to readers' imaginations to fill in the blanks.

All the details cherished by those who are enchanted by weddings are offered here, from the color of the bridal outfit (aquamarine) to the choice of flowers (virgin's bower and hydrangeas). When the wedding bells finally ring, the...

Book Review
Whether you want toned arms for your sleeveless gown or flat abs for your honeymoon bikini, certified trainer Sue Fleming can help you get in better shape for your wedding, even if you have only six months. This slim (106-page) book presents a six-month strength-training daily workout guide with cardio recommendations and a "crash program" if there’s only 12 weeks before the wedding. The strength-training exercises are basic, beginning workouts using dumbbells, stability ball, step, and ankle weights, all clearly explained and illustrated.

The cardio recommendations are very general--for instance, 75 minutes per week for weeks five and six, doing one or two activities that raise your heart rate for most of your workout, which should last at least 25 minutes. Sadly, Fleming runs through just a few ways (walking,...

Book Review
If you've ever lived in a small town or been active in a church, chances are you know a Miss Julia, the paragon of outdated correctness at the center of Ann B. Ross's series of comic novels. One-third busybody, one-third Southern relic, and one-third loving kindness, the elderly Miss Julia finds herself at a loss at the beginning of Miss Julia Throws a Wedding. Although her own marriage was about as uplifting as a burned pot roast, she is mortified to learn that Hazel Marie, her dead husband's mistress, proposes to move out of Miss Julia's house and into a life of sin with the perpetual bachelor J.D. Pickens. At least Deputy Sheriff Coleman Bates and attorney Binkie Enloe, longtime lovers, have finally decided to do the right thing. Now if only they would do it the right way. Intent on preserving the niceties, Miss Julia...
