About the book:
In this e-novella kicking off the brand-new Destination Weddings series, Bellamy, a bride-to-be who dreams of a one-of-a-kind Manhattan wedding, gets caught up in all the planning, and things quickly spin out of control.
What is the true cost of an ultimate uptown wedding?
Bellamy grew up in a large, boisterous family. The Hillmans may not have had it all, but Bellamy learned how to stretch a dollar and make it look like she did. Now she’s marrying Reid Stanton, the man of her dreams. While planning their one-of-a-kind Manhattan destination wedding, Bellamy gets caught up in all things Pinterest. It starts out simply enough with a “Save the Date Destination Wedding” board. Then it’s the “Destination Wedding Dresses” and “Invitations” boards. As her ideas multiply, so does the cost of the wedding.
Before she realizes it, all her creative planning has decimated the budget. Can Bellamy make things right, or will the cost of the ultimate wedding be losing the man she loves?
This is an incredible inspirational romance!
I have never read any of Beth K. Vogt's books before. I am so glad that I read this one though. She is a marvelous writer. I loved the characters she created. They are so HUMAN and easy to relate to. Both of the main characters, Bellamy and Reid, are perfectly flawed and that makes them believable. They have both made mistakes in the past.
I loved the exploration into how those past mistakes can create misconception as to who they are in their own minds. They each have great counsel from a close friend and their parents to help them work through these problems and get their own heads screwed on straight. Only then can they work through things with each other.
