Alice Harris first debuted in the literary world in 1996 with the success of her book The White T, and gained a stronger following when she introduced The Blue Jean in 2002. Sara Bliss, who provided the text for the book, is a freelance writer who covers interior design, food, beauty, travel, celebrities and relationships. “My love of weddings began with my own wonderful wedding. It was a spectacular party from the beginning of the vows to the ‘Last Dance.’ I wanted to honor the world's weddings and cherish their customs, joy and happiness,” says Alice Harris.
