Library-Themed Weddings

There are few places on earth that I love more than the library. Before I had kids I would spend hours there, poring over books. When I finally headed for the exit, my book bag would weigh more than a small child.

Two kids later, my library book bag still weighs as much as a small child, but now the bag is full of kids’ books. I do miss reading – and I do miss solitary time spent at the library.

Given my love for the library, it’s no wonder that I love weddings with a library or book theme.

Here are a few that recently caught my eye:
