Real Wedding: Brittany & John at The Breakers Palm Beach

“Timeless, fairy tale elements were a huge part of our wedding planning,” Brittany shares. “My bridal shower was fairy tale themed and it definitely factored into the decor elements on our wedding day: bagpipers outside the church, vintage clocks and books on the lounge tables in the reception, custom bookmark place cards, and of course, our beautiful fairy tale book wall that later became a backdrop for the photo booth!”

The Making of the Book Wall…

When Brittany first met with Event Design Manager Aime Dunstan in the Design Studio, the fellow bookworms knew the Book Wall would be an extra special treat to greet guests during the cocktail reception in the Mediterranean Ballroom.

More than 100 hardback books were hand-selected and placed into the custom display.

“I scoured thrift stores and vintage book dealers for months to build this collection of well-worn tomes,” Aime shares. “Shape, size, color and patina were of particular importance, as the books were attached in a puzzle-like fashion to completely blanket an 8’x8′ wall we constructed in our studio.”

Our team’s favorite part? The scent!

“To an avid reader, there is no more peaceful and inspiring fragrance than old books,” says Aime. “Accents of fresh garden roses, curly willow, hydrangea and hanging green amaranthus only added to the experience.”

The Conclusion…

After cocktail hour, our production team discreetly relocated the installation to the Venetian Ballroom, where guests could pose in front of the storybook backdrop for photo booth fun.
