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.
