What could be more romantic than the only daughter of a romance writer getting married?
Elizabeth Wiggs is the daughter of Jay and New York Times best-selling author Susan Wiggs. She was married this summer to hunk-a-hunk Canuck (Canadian) Dave here in Seattle. He is a second year law student at Northwestern University. Wiggs will be starting the MBA program at the University of Chicago this fall.
Dave has transformed ace-swimmer Wiggs into a marathon runner. She loves to cook. She loves her makeup and shoes.
MoB (mother of the bride) Susan and daughter Elizabeth wore matching shoes at the wedding ~ different colors.
The bride’s attendants all wore yellow shoes.
The pearls are Grandma Wiggs’.
Jay sported a duct-tape bandage on wedding day.
The wine was bought by papa Jay on the day little Wiggs was born.
Wiggs’s “sibling” is a dog named Barkis.
She walked down the aisle to “Morning Has Broken“ by Cat Stevens ~ birds were a wedding theme:
Morning has broken, like the first morning
Blackbird has spoken, like the first bird
Praise for the singing, praise for the morning
Praise for the springing fresh from the word.
Sweet the rain’s new fall, sunlit from heaven
Like the first dewfall, on the first grass
Praise for the sweetness of the wet garden
Sprung in completeness where his feet pass.
Mine is the sunlight, mine is the morning
Born of the one light, Eden saw play
Praise with elation, praise every morning
God’s recreation of the new day.
Susan Wiggs and her daughter who is affectionately known as Wiggs are writing a wedding memoir. They’re looking for wild and crazy ideas for the title of their book. If your idea is most clever, you can win one of three KitchenAid Stand Mixers. You can enhance your chances of a win by adding Wiggs to your blogroll and/or writing a post about her contest.
If you are like me, a sucker for romance, you can view wedding photos on Susan’s blog and the wedding video on Wiggs’ blog.
Good luck! Have fun! I hope you win because I sure as hell don’t need a fancy mixer in my kitchen.
I’m supporting the contest because Susan Wiggs’ is my mentor and Wigg’s blog brings me joy every day. Her blog was the first on my blogroll: Joy, Joy, Joy.

Update: The book’s title is How I Planned Your Wedding.
