Light Matters

LM1

Juxtaposed against contemporary interpretations of Arabic architecture, here we showcase some of this season’s most statement-making gowns. Pattern and light are explored through mashrabiya, a form of latticework that uses geometric shapes to provide shade, resulting in patterned sunlight where light passes through.

Olessia and Anton's ceremony effortlessly married the couple's contemporary aesthetic with timeless elegance. A neutral colour palette and blush-toned roses kept things classic while white orchids, avant-garde silhouettes, and the Royal Conservatory of Music's modern architecture offset the refined details with a current twist.

True love and luxury were what this couple was pursuing with their Italian destination wedding. To capture the romance, Karen and Chris hosted their wedding at Villa Cora, a historic villa on the outskirts of Florence. Adding to the venue's idyllic architecture, the couple incorporated charming white flowers of all shapes and sizes including orchids, roses, and lilies.

These stylish decors reimagine the Presidential candidates as they've never been seen before: as wedding themes! Clinton's tablescape stays stays true to democratic blue with two-toned chinoiserie that looks like it belongs in a family cabin. The more extravagant decor inspired by Trump incorporates the red of his political party and gilded details reminiscent of his hotels' more luxurious suites.
