Fashion and style innovator and best-selling illustrated book author Alice Harris has compiled an incredible selection of photographs and stories designed to illustrate the romance, love, celebration, and just how far some go to say “I do.” The Wedding Album takes readers on a tour of the most fabulous, dynamic, and sometimes outlandish ceremonies, chronicling the changing manners and mores of the wedding worldwide.
Adorned with iconic images of couples joining together in holy matrimony, The Wedding Album features colorful nuptials from many cultures throughout history, as well as those whose unions make history themselves, including Lady Diana Spencer and the Prince of Wales, Jacqueline Bouvier and John F. Kennedy, Ava Gardner and Frank Sinatra, Marilyn Monroe and Arthur Miller, Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz, Priscilla Wagner and Elvis Presley, Paul Newman and Joanne Woodward, Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton, Sonny and Cher, Linda Eastman and Paul McCartney, and Yoko Ono and John Lennon, among others.
A sophisticated, spellbinding volume, The Wedding Album provides stylish inspiration in a touching celebration of the ceremony that unites us with the one we love.
