"Should help couples planning their weddings and pastors looking for ways to dramatize the meaning of marriage for the couple and their people. It is also, even to someone like me, who would not normally even look at a book on weddings, surprisingly interesting. (Starred Review)."
"This volume distinguishes itself from hundreds of other wedding planners by reintroducing forgotten Jewish, Catholic, and Protestant customs for couples seeking to infuse contemporary celebrations with rich symbolism and ceremonial splendor."

"A delightfully refreshing, readable, and eminently useful alternative to the sorts of cutesy and sentimental wedding planning guides that flood today's market."
