For her Fall 2017 collection presented at Bridal Fashion Week this month, Reem Acra's ethereal aesthetic came to life via a series of romantic lace dresses. Enchanted embroidery, ballgown silhouettes, an unexpected pastel pop of colour and sheer, gossamer-like skirts were the highlights this season.
Reminiscent of aristocratic luncheons thrown by ladies in the English countryside, Angela's bridal shower was a royal affair. Hosted just on the outskirts of Toronto at Caledon's Royal Ambassador Event Centre, the event drew inspiration from English Garden Estates and Paris' famous Ladurée patisserie.With overflowing floral arrangements and a dessert table piled high with cakes, macarons, profiteroles, and a seemingly endless variety of tarts, Angela hit both her marks. Bon appétit.

For their Fall 2017 Bridal collection, Marchesa designers Keren Craig and Georgina Chapman retooled their most recent Spring 2017 RTW collection for the bridal market. Capelets, Grecian draped gowns, off-the-shoulder necklines and 3D floral appliqués were the standout features in this heavily fashion-forward collection that romantic brides are sure to fall for.
Amy and Brian first connected on the ski slopes of Wisconsin's Cascade Mountain on Valentine's Day weekend. The couple recreated that romance with their destination wedding at Lake Louise at the Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise. The snow-covered hills outside were counteracted by the chateau's warmth and intimate atmosphere created by the fluffy details, golden lights and, of course, the bride and groom's closest friends and family.
