Pink is trending this season, but who knew that the prettiest shades were found naturally! This Glitterati Style File was inspired by the gorgeous rose hues of Himalayan sea salt. You'll also see splashes of marble, geodes, and agate throughout (that bubblegum pink geode backdrop would be the perfect spot for selfies, don't you agree?). See more from this styled shoot in the newest issue of WedLuxe Magazine (Toronto & Eastern Canada edition).

Following a dreamy, pastel bridal shower, Chelsea and Michael were married on a beautiful day that began with a cottage chic brunch welcoming their guests. This was followed by an intimate, European garden-inspired outdoor ceremony and a bold, jewel tone indoor reception. Ultimately, the couple's trio of celebrations brought to life a variety of styles and designs they had envisioned for their special day, and it was nothing short of breathtaking.
