Friday Feature: Wedding books

We are book worms here at B&A, especially when it comes to our favorite topic weddings! Wedding books are a great way to get an inside scope on the world of weddings, what to expect on your big day, and of course some amazing decor inspiration. Believe us there is no better eye candy  than a great wedding book! Below are three books that we just can’t seem to put down, and don’t think you will be able to either.


If you haven’t heard of the wonderful wedding inspiration site known as Style Me Pretty, you have probably been living under a rock and we highly advise making your way over there NOW! Ok now that, that is taken care of, take that amazingly fabulous wedding website and turn it into an equally fabulous book and you have Style Me Pretty Weddings. You can purchase your very own copy right here.


The Wedding Book, nicknamed The Wedding Bible, is jam packed with experience, inspiration, and style tips. Written by well known wedding planner Mindy Weiss, The Wedding Book helps brides to prepare and anticipate every detail big or small. Looking for this book? You can find it here or on your local Barnes and Noble shelf.


Lastly, we swoon over this hot off the press, newly released wedding book. If you’re looking for a book with a ton of current inspiration and whole lot of fun, The New-Fashioned Wedding by the fabulous ladies of Bash, please is the book for you. We highly advise rushing to order a copy here, you wont be sorry we promise!

Do you have a favorite wedding book? We would love to hear it!

Friday Feature: Root 75

So excited to shine a spotlight on the breathtakingly beautiful work of local San Diego event florist and boutique, Root 75!

 If that name sounds familiar to you it’s probably because you saw their handiwork a couple of weeks ago on that lil ole wedding blog Style Me Pretty! Katherine really outdid herself on all of the stunning florals for their sweet Coronado wedding that was recently featured. See below for the gorgeous proof in pictures!

Although the Root 75 shop is a relatively new fixture in Coronado, Katherine has been arranging event florals for 10 years. It really shows too- each creation is a little work of art with every branch and blossom perfectly placed.

The bride’s and bridesmaid’s bouquets are some of my all time faves! Love how all of the arrangements and bouquets are slightly different, but still go together so beautifully.

The little unexpected touches that Katherine incorporates is what makes us fall in love with every creation that comes out of Root 75. And all of that wonderful texture! Never a boring bouquet from them.

Not to mention the incredibly dreamy and romantic look and feel all of their flowers embody……

Dying over these soft ballet hues. They look like they belong in a Degas painting…

Before we met Katherine at her and Kristy’s shop, we read their about us and were immeadiately thrilled to meet! Seriously, it’s hilarious. And Katherine did not dissapoint. She is so warm and inviting, you honestly feel like you’ve known her for ages after one visit! Plus, gotta admit I had a little bit of a girl crush on her outfit. She looked like she stepped straight out of a Jenna Lyons- styled to perfection- J Crew catalog. Gorgeous and effortless just like the shop!

If you’re in the San Diego area it seriously can’t be missed! Every shelf and ladder is filled with covetable items. From Orange & Park prints, to funky votives, and the cutest mercury glass bottles you ever did see- you will want to leave with everything.

Wish you could score some of their flowers!? We’ve seen them have multiple giveaways on their facebook page! They deliver them to the lucky winners…….

On that note, we leave you with some heavenly close-ups of the florals that come out of this shop everyday! So excited and honored to have multiple weddings with Root 75 coming up this year! Lucky us!
