Winemaker and Television Personality Amy LaBelle to Release Debut Book
Amherst, New Hampshire — Amy LaBelle, the founder of and winemaker at LaBelle Winery, will release her debut book on December 16: “Wine Weddings: The Ultimate Guide to Creating the Wine-Themed Wedding of Your Dreams” (Corkscrew Press, 154 pages).
A 20-year veteran of the wine industry, LaBelle has hosted hundreds of weddings at LaBelle’s Derry and Amherst locations. In her soon-to-be released book, she shares the story of planning her own wedding and offers professional guidance for planning and hosting weddings of every size and type.
“Wine Weddings” is also a valuable resource for wedding planners who wish to provide clients with a unique and memorable wine-themed wedding experience.
The book discusses how to create a wine-inspired wedding theme and aesthetic. Topics covered in the book include creating mood boards, vineyard ceremonies, invitation designs, signature drinks, wedding favors, menu selection and wine choices. “Wine Weddings” also includes a section about working with vendors.
The book was inspired by LaBelle’s desire to help couples plan themed weddings in innovative and compelling ways. According to LaBelle, using a theme opens up creative possibilities, ensuring that a couple’s desired details and ambiance are incorporated into their wedding day preparations.
“Couples can think of ‘Wine Weddings’ as a road map for navigating the wedding-planning process, resulting in a memorable experience for everyone involved, from family members to the photographer, florist, DJ, or band. With ‘Wine Weddings’ as a guide, a couple’s wedding day will be the happiest and most memorable day of their lives,” LaBelle says.
“Wine Weddings” features an abundance of beautiful color photographs taken at actual weddings hosted by LaBelle.
The hardcover edition of the book is available for $35 on Amazon.com; LaBelle’s website, AmyLabelle.com; and on LaBelle Winery’s website, LabelleWinery.com. The electronic version of the book will be released on Jan. 4, 2023. It will be available on Amazon for $19.99.
