I have always known I wanted to use books in some decorative way at my wedding. I collect vintage children’s books and the theme of my wedding is roaring 20’s/great gatsby-esque. Needless to say, I wanted to tie in my love for all things literary. This week, my mother and I went to Elder’s Bookstore on Elliston [the oldest bookstore in Tennessee]. I’ve become buddies with Mr. Elder and occasionally stop in to see recent additions to the store. While we were there, I found his secret stash of national geographic magazines and bought several, gorgeous reference sets that doubled as a wedding present from my parents. I wasn’t sure where I wanted to store them, but finally found a spot :) I love books.
