For Lisa and Eric, modern was the name of the game. From the bride's fierce jumpsuit to the artsy ceremony setting and gold drip cake from Nadia & Co~, this couple's celebration was anything but conventional. And with renowned Toronto restauranteur and celebrity chef Mark McEwan as the father of the groom, it was safe to say that the food stole the show. When guests arrived at the reception, they were treated to a raw bar with Russian Ossetra caviar, oysters, Maine mussels, poached prawns, yellowfin tuna tartar, king crab legs, and ceviche. Who's hungry?

Basking in San Diego’s endless sunshine, Fairmont Grand Del Mar welcomes guests to a warm Mediterranean estate, replete with signature charm and Southern California style. Impeccable service delivers every five-star indulgence, including a championship Tom Fazio golf course, therapeutic five-star spa, and exquisite dining — epitomized by Addison, Southern California’s only five-star and five diamond restaurant.

Fairmont Grand Del Mar is an ideal location for weddings as guests can visit the resort for several days and never have to leave. Lounge poolside. Take a scenic hike. Focus on wellbeing. Fairmont Grand Del Mar is nestled in the heart of Southern California, drenched in year-round sunshine and surrounded by a wonderland of flora and fauna. Endless options offer something for everyone – the active enthusiast, the spirited adventurer, the culinary connoisseur, and the style seeker. From pro-style tennis courts and an 18-hole championship golf course to a renaissance-inspired spa and an abundance of outdoor recreation on the 37 miles of canyon preserve trails, the vibrant activity of the resort will meet every need for fun or relaxation. Should you venture beyond the luxurious retreat, you'll find San Diego’s top attractions, art galleries and museums, lively shopping districts, and miles of coastal bliss, all minutes away.

Fairmont Grand Del Mar’s Mediterranean-style setting draws inspiration from Spain’s palaces, France’s sun-washed coastal retreats, Florence’s decorate arts and Morocco’s exotic architecture. A wedding here feels like a destination worlds away, yet conveniently located in Southern California.

The on-site Capella chapel is a beautifully-appointed venue evoking an intriguing mix of romance, whimsy, and rich, detailed design. Light floods the airy space through expansive tinted and stained glass windows with vibrant hues of amber, amethyst, rose, and jewel tones. The masterful architecture and interiors include an artful mix of Jerusalem gold-honed limestone, Italian Vicenza stone, Rossa Levanto polished marble accents, antiqued timber beams, and limestone buttresses. Anchoring the front of the room is a stunning proscenium supported by hand-carved polished marble columns and a dramatic stained glass quatrefoil window. Featuring 28 hand-carved removable pews imported from Italy, the Capella accommodates up to 280 guests for a wedding ceremony or seated dinner and 350 guests for a cocktail reception. Fairmont Grand Del Mar hosts only one wedding per day, so brides are treated with true hospitality as the sole focus on their special day.

From secluded to sweeping, Fairmont Grand Del Mar offers an exquisite array of options: Recite your vows on the manicured and verdant Aria Lawn, framed by the splendorous Aria Pavilion; surround yourself in elegance within the Manchester Salon and Terrace; create a sense of theatre in the gilded Elizabeth Ballroom; or unite in the storybook locale of the Capella chapel. A similar breadth of experiences are available for your reception, from expansive ballrooms and sun-drenched, outdoor pavilions to two restaurants with private dining areas, our wood-beamed and bricked wine rooms, or even Fairmont Grand Del Mar’s Wine Cellar, where wedding toasts flow like vintage Champagne. Simply put, there can be no better place to start your life together.

This chic Parisian editorial was shot at the Hôtel Ritz Paris as part of the inaugural L'Artisan Workshop, a Canadian-French fine art photography and styling workshop. If you're in need of destination wedding inspiration, look no further (and don't miss out on L'Artisan Workshop's second event, happening in October 2018).

There is nothing more classic than a white wedding! Naj and Alphonse's gorgeous Dubai celebration kicked off in style with a champagne reception and piano accompaniment. The white grand piano also served as the perfect backdrop for the couple's sweetheart table. Meanwhile, ivory floral arrangements and water-filled vases containing floating candles made up the rest of the decor. Just imagine the beautiful Dubai night filled with candlelight, swaying palm trees, and a whole lot of love. We are majorly envious of the guests who got to attend this destination wedding!
