I was fortunate to meet Fifi along with her collaborating photographer Mark Lohman when they photographed my home last year.  I so admire Fifi’s work and learned about her upcoming publication Prairie Style Weddings during her visit last Fall.  The idea for the book signing in Bristol emerged and I am so happy the stars aligned to make this event come together!

Fifi’s only New England Book signing Event will be held at the breathtaking Blithewold Mansion Gardens and Arboretum.  THE perfect setting to celebrate Woodland and Garden Celebrations and the release of Fifi O’Neills latest book! 

“Prairie-Style Weddings are the perfect blending of romance and pragmatism, of simplicity and embellishments. Handmade, sustainable, and accessible elements set a casual, welcoming, and celebratory tone that transform fantastic dreams into reality. Prairie-Style festivities embrace all sorts of humble materials in ways that elevate them from ordinary to fabulous.”

Whether you are planning a wedding, event, or are just an admirer of Fifi’s timeless style, we hope you will join us!
