    Known for his lavish productions, big or small, and his meticulously careful conception of what his clients want, this book features fourteen of his romantic and well thought out weddings around the world. You can see my entire review on my non-fiction book review website. Yahoo! search using keyword PettProjects.

    No help in wedding planning, just pretty pictures.

    This book did not inspire me so much as it rubbed my face in the fact that these people can spend more in one day then I will make in ten years. Beautiful pictures, but I was looking for ideas that I could use in my wedding. Most of the decorations are not really achievable with a realistic budget.
