Taking cue from all the great feedback we’ve received on the Bridal Style approach to this year’s issue of Weddingstar magazine, we’ve decided to use our blog to expand on and explore the styles in all their pretty details. We’ll be breaking it all down to somewhat of a science, showing how personal style translates into a wedding design, in hopes that it’ll spark inspiration for all the brides who have yet to define their wedding style.

We’re calling the series A Girl & Her Table and because we’re in the depths of a long cold winter and in need of a serious pick me up, we’re starting the series with a punch of color and a dose of sunshine.

Diana + Patrick: Destination Sun

Bold. Vibrant. Colour.

Not only does the wedding feature multitudes of colors (though a lovely shade of peach is definitely the focus), but the Bride and Groom’s surroundings in beautiful Playa del Carmen are filled with the kind of life that you simply don’t tend to see in North America.
