Coming Soon: A Book From Ritzy Bee

Washington-area event planners create a spiffy new wedding guide.

Maria Cooke and Kelly Seizert of Ritzy Bee Events in Alexandria are known for creating whimsical and unique weddings, and of course, for their popular blog, Ritzy Bee. And now, the wedding planning gurus have written their first book, The Southern Living Wedding Planner and Keepsake: What To Do Before Saying “I Do.” The book, written in conjunction with Southern Living magazine and Oxmoor House, intends to help brides stay organized and stress-free while putting together their wedding day. Alexandria photographer Kate Headley shot all of the pictures for the guide.  

The book won’t be available until January 3, 2012, but you can you preorder it on—or if you’re feeling lucky, head over to the Ritzy Bee blog to enter to win one of five copies.
