Versailles | French Vintage Wedding

Beautiful bride Mandy wanted her wedding day to feel like Versailles circa 1920. The lush gorgeous roses and orchids in shades of blush, champagne and ivory adorned vintage inspired luxury linens. She definitely had a team of the best working hard to fulfill her vision. J. Grace brought the bride’s vintage Versailles theme to life through her luxurious stationery while floral fashionista Aileen Tran of Karen Tran Florals created the decor. Baroque. Paris. Versailles. Blush. French Vintage. Love.

 Blush place cards, designed by J. Grace, were attached to vintage pincushions and antique skeleton keys with pink satin ribbon.  The pin cushions and keys are from the bride’s own collection…all different and so pretty!







I love that the tables are named rather than numbered, after well known places and people of France.  


Photos of the bride and groom in vintage frames made an amazing display in the ballroom.

The Plaza Hotel | Blush Luxe Wedding



This gown is so exquisite. It’s actually a custom Inbal Dror gown constructed of {what looks to be} a partially visible separate corset underpinning the luxurious silk and lace gown. The shimmery pink bridesmaid’s gowns are amazing.

 Jana Williams photographed this wedding so beautifully, I couldn’t tear my eyes away from the gorgeous photos. Her friend and colleague Christina Chang ~ an incredible talent in her own right ~ photographed along with Williams as second shooter. Please visit  to experience this luxurious wedding story told through her flawless images. Golf Srithamrong of Tantawan Blooms rocked out some major florals for this event. He captivates with his stunning attention to detail. I truly love every aspect of this wedding. This opulent affair was also captured on film by Rob Adams.

Princesa de Portugal

Inveritable talent Portuguese designer Sandro Barros created this exquisite one of a kind princess gown for Camila Setúbal, daughter of Olavo Setúbal of São Paulo, Brazil. This is the answer to a question that has brides-to-be posting furiously to wedding forums, Pinterest and Facebook desperately trying to locate the designer of this gown.  Fully-removable top is made of a delicate and beautiful Alençon lace, bodice and double box pleat skirt are constructed of exquisite Italian silk satin skirt adorned with Alençon applique and the veil is the most exquisite I have ever seen, handmade at his [Barros’] atelier. Beautiful. Enjoy xo.

May I just say, this veil is so beautiful; every piece lovingly hand stitched by the atelier [Sandro Barros]. An heirloom veil if ever I did see one. A true work of art.

Shabby Chic Vintage Wedding Inspiration


A Shabby Chic wedding makes me think of distressed white wooden chairs, wrought iron candle holders, beautiful flowers and a muted yet sparkling palette of pale pinks, blues and silver. Romantic. Vintage. Rustic.


Tea Stained Place Cards attached to vintage keys with lovely ribbon. All of your wedding stationary could reflect this idea; visit Etsy to see the work of some very talented craftspeople.

muted bouquet wrapped in burlap

I love the unique blooms, the natural muted palette and the burlap.


I love the shape of this cake, the lace detailing and the fondant ribbon…what I really love? The cake stand which is a little tough to see but it would be the perfect cake foundation for a Shabby Chic wedding theme.

Lace and Burlap is one of the prettiest combinations; I love seeing them used together.

I’ve thought a lot about which type of gown would best suit this theme and…

Ralph Lauren Equestrian Inspired Wedding Shoot

I came across the work of the very talented Rachel A. Clingen several years ago at a bridal show in Toronto and she has been one of Toronto’s {and my} most beloved stylists. Her meticulous attention to detail helps tell the story of your wedding through beautiful florals and decor.

When I came across this shoot, it was love at first sight. The warm glow of the fall season was the perfect time for this Ralph Lauren Inspired wedding style shoot with antique decor accents and a pretty collection of flowers.  The equestrian details are so lovely; the horses and barn are Rachel’s. Enjoy xo.
