Fashion-forward brides need look no further than Marchesa's latest collection for a bevvy of bridal confections. At the presentation, the tiered, ruffled and bow-bedecked gowns were styled with on-trend black ribbon chokers, oversized earrings and frilly sock-and-stiletto combos, making the "no black at a wedding" rule a thing of the past.
Shama and Shaun's traditional Hindu wedding was nothing short of divine. The luxurious ivory linens and soft pink and white floral arrangements perfectly complemented the opulent, Spanish-inspired architecture of Kitchener's Hacienda Sarria. In addition, the day was filled with special details like the floral-covered arch above the altar and the navy blue blackjack tables that greeted guests at the venue's entrance. This bright and colourful wedding was simply unforgettable!

Just a three hour plane ride away from Toronto, Palm Beach is truly a premiere vacation destination rich with glamour and history. The original winter playground for socialites escaping the cold, Palm Beach as we know it began in the late 1800s when railroad magnate Henry M. Flagler built a link to this spectacular island. Flagler was also responsible for the first grand resort, The Breakers, which debuted in 1896 in the unique oceanfront location, right in front of where the waves would break against the beach.
Designed by famous New York designers Shultze and Weaver, the magnificent resort grew and often contained a who’s who of early 20th century American society, including European nobility and multiple U.S. Presidents. Today the hotel stays true to its founding principles - unapologetic luxury, seaside glamour and world class service, making it the perfect honeymoon or destination wedding location for a discerning, stylish and sophisticated couple!
Located on a 140 acre property, the possibilities for your vacation are endless! Enjoy the sun and warmth and relax in one of four heated oceanfront pools as well as adjacent bungalows available along with personalized concierge service. If sitting back isn’t your style, you can always partake in a variety of water sports, including scuba diving, catamaran sailing, or snorkelling in the renowned coral reef located just yards from the shore.
Once you’re ready for a break, head to the Oceanfront or Rees Jones golf course, the meticulous clay tennis courts or the fitness centre where the team will be happy to work with you to create a bespoke exercise plan. To unwind you can always head to the magnificent new indoor-outdoor spa, where we’d recommend a manicure with the exclusive Essie shade “Sea You at The Breakers.” On site, there are 11 luxurious shopping boutiques, including Lilly Pulitzer, Guerlain and Polo Ralph Lauren.
Ready to satisfy every appetite, the 9 world class restaurants feature a wide range of choice from the revival of Palm Beach cocktail culture to exotic Pan-Asian cuisine. Staff pay attention to every last detail from freshly baked baguette to creamy Nitro coffee on tap, and everything in between. Farm to table is nothing new here, with local and sustainable choices featured on menus for over 25 years, ensuring that you’ll get nothing but the freshest and best tasting options.
You can always ensure that you are satisfied with your stay, as The Breakers remains committed to social responsibility and environmental sustainability. With initiatives benefiting the United Way, FEED Projects, the Rainforest Alliances and various food banks, the well being of the community as a whole is at the core of The Breakers’ culture. The hotel is still owned by the family of Henry Flagler, and remain committed to ensuring that every guest feels just as at home. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, this modern-classic resort represents a timeless, luxurious, and unique elegance.
Inspired by her hometown of Santa Monica and the frothy ocean waves, Sabrina Dahan's Spring 2018 bridal collection features soft organza, ruffled chiffon and sea blue tints. We love the classic shapes yet non-traditional vibe of the gowns which would be equally fitting for a California cool celebration or a formal, ballroom affair.
