In 1997 we published A Bridal Blessing, which has sold more than 100,000 copies. From the first we have heard from many who said that as much as they admired the book, they wished we had not focused exclusively on the bride, but had blessed more widely, especially remembering the groom. We finally succumb, and here offer an inclusive celebration of a marriage. A blessing is defined as a wish, expressed in words, that stated good things occur. Welleran Poltarnees has become a master of the book-length blessing. His careful prose, his sense of essentials, and his ability to find the right picture to give the words additional power make volumes that are perfect gifts for special friends and important occasions.

About the Author
WELLERAN POLTARNEES has a lifelong love of gardens. His first memory is falling out of his baby carriage and landing on a bed of odorous white flowers which not only kept him from injury, but made the experience a sensual delight. He collects books about, and pictures of, gardens but there are few timeless things that he does not so honor. He uses a book called Great Gardens of the World as a guide whenever he travels, and, with the exception of the Boboli Gardens in Florence, which came highly recommended and which he found monotonous the gardens have always refreshed him. His favorite time for gardens is night. His favorite garden music is Manuel De Falla's "Nights in the Gardens of Spain", and his favorite garden poem is "The Garden" by Andrew Marvell.
