Celebrating the design + style of luxe weddings across canada, the usa + beyond

Today we are dreaming of the pastel walls and vibrant weather of Cartagena, Colombia. As Lauren Santo Domingo states, "Cartagena is becoming more and more popular for destination weddings for the beauty of its churches, the range of accommodations, and the activities." She would know; the American socialite's 2008 nuptials to billionaire Andrés Santo Domingo, which took place in the old port city, are widely considered to be the society wedding of this century, so far. The perfect place for a destination wedding or an active honeymoon, we recommend staying at the Tcherassi Hotel & Spa or the Sofitel Santa Clara. Surrounded by a still-intact 16th century wall, the town remains charmingly rustic and rugged, despite having become a hotspot for international jet-setters in recent years, so bring your sense of adventure with you!

Michelle and Jason wanted their engagement session, photographed by Hong Photography Studio, to feel elegant yet fresh and modern. The Vancouver based couple enlisted the team at ROA Luxury Floral Event Design to bring their stylish yellow, black, and white dream photo shoot to life. From the custom stationery by Maurelle Calligraphy and Design to the stunning array of desserts from Marked Edible Events, we were charmed by the design elements of the "styled shoot-esque" e-session and we can't wait to see photos from the couple’s impending “I Do’s.”

With yesterday marking the end of the Cannes Film Festival, today we are rounding up the best looks photographed this week, spanning from the Opening Ceremony to the annual amfAR Gala. Many of our favourite S/S 2015 Couture gowns from Elie Saab and Zuhair Murad made their debut at the festival, resulting in one of the best dressed red carpets we have seen in a while. Did you have a favourite look from the festival? Let us know in the comments.

We recently highlighted the butterfly trend (which we’re loving!) on the blog, so needless to say, we were thrilled when we came across this butterfly-themed shoot from Amsis Photography. The photo shoot, produced by Glaze & John Events, was designed to inspire a relaxed yet romantic spring wedding with garden elements incorporated throughout. We adore the pretty colour palette of soft pink, raspberry, green, white, and gold. The beautiful butterfly motif carried across the stationery by Ferris Wheel Press also made our hearts flutter.
