Craig proposed to Sharlene in Florence after eight years together. The couple then returned to the city of their engagement to be wed, flying all the way from Melbourne for the occasion. Our favourite design detail? The dreamy floral arch covered in greenery and baby's breath! The couple said "I do" under it during the ceremony, before it was then repurposed as the most perfect backdrop for the reception. It's almost enough to distract us from the breathtaking view of Tuscany!
Florals, florals, florals! Pastel florals were the name of the game at Maria and Alexandr's stunning Russian wedding. Pink, lavender, and ivory flowers were used to create the most romantic floral escape. Our favourite feature of the wedding was the floral wall that extended onto the ceiling, creating a lush canopy above the head table. Who needs anything else when you're surrounded by this much beauty?
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.

From the moment Vitrie and Daniel became engaged, dreamt of saying ‘I Do’ at a French château. The couple’s dreams became a reality when they became husband and wife at the spectacular Château de Vaux-le-Vicomte at sunset in the château’s gardens. From the outdoor ceremony, the couple celebrated with their loved ones in the central rotunda of the château where textured, rose quartz and serenity blue-hued arrangements filled the room. Lush and luxe, it was a day the newlyweds won’t soon forget.
