My Take On The Book

This was a great book that brought together some wonderful stories of the special day that if your wedding day. Many of the stories were heartwarming, but you really go to see some of the wonderful reasons and emotions of the day itself. You get to see the joys, highs and lows of this special day and through some amazing story you get to live vicariously as well as learn (especially if you are planning a day like this in the near future).  This was a great book that I would recommend to all!
