Overflowing with champagne, everything about this styled shoot says holiday celebration! French macarons in muted pastel shades from Soirette pair perfectly with Veuve Clicquot bubbles. Sparkly gowns and bouquets filled with pine cones add to the festive feel created by Shing Weddings and captured by Denise Lin Photography.

After you’ve said yes to the dress, the next decision you’ll face is how to style your hair and makeup on what will likely be the most photographed day of your life. Who better to look to for beauty ideas than celebs who are used to being photographed on the daily?

We gathered a few photos of our favourite actresses and their red carpet lip looks for a little bit of inspiration and found the lipsticks and glosses that will get you the same style. Will you go with a soft pink like Keira Knightley? Or, are you more likely to go bold like Lupita Nyong'o? Let us know your beauty plans (+ lipstick must-haves!) in the comments.

We love it when a couple seamlessly incorporates their individual family traditions into one stunning day! Sabrina and Mustafa had both a Chinese Tea Ceremony and a Persian Sofreh to reflect their families’ heritages at their wedding.

Using a white and pink colour palette to tie both the ceremonies together, the florals from Katsura Designs and Sunflower Florists filled the Vancouver Island Room at the Fairmont Hotel Vancouver. The colour theme, photographed by  Sweet Pea Photography continued at the reception with blush roses and Swarovski-inspired favors.

The bride’s favourite detail of the day, the sweetheart table, also featured pink and white linens, candles, and flowers. We think the purple uplighting and floor-to-ceiling windows, really made the couple’s table standout!
