You never know what will inspire a wedding... Sometimes a surprising source (like this vintage fashion photograph) can lead to some great theme ideas.

Alexandra and Steven, a book-loving duo, opted to incorporate their shared passion into their big day. They turned to their friend Lane Smith (a children's book illustrator) to draw elements of their stationery, which was then designed by Lane's wife. Family heirlooms were woven in, and one was even created—the needlepointed ring pillow made by the mother of the bride. Illustrations came back into play with the guest book-style station where attendees sketched and wrote on blank cards using a variety of pencils and pens.

Last week we launched our new book THE ART OF THE PARTY at Bergdorf Goodman on their iconic 7th Floor.
The cover of the book is taken from Frances and Andrew's wedding. See it all here.
I was honored by a glorious party co-hosted by Martha Stewart Weddings’ fab Darcy Miller and Bergdorfs, and it was a fun evening full of warmth and great energy. We also took the occasion to launch a collection of one-of-a-kind art pieces, created exclusively for the store called Paper Tales. Each piece has been handmade in our studio in Brooklyn from vintage and antique books, and I thought it would be fun to share some of the images with you here.

I hope you have a chance to check out Paper Tales live on the 7th Floor of Bergdorf Goodman. They are such intimate pieces that seeing them in real life will always be better than photos! Huge thanks to Darcy and Bergdorf Goodman for such a wonderful evening. I loved every second of it.
