Destination Wedding by Gia Canali and Yifat Oren, II
November 13, 2009

You should probably sit down for this next feature. Even if you have no interest in a beachside wedding, even if you aren't going to rock out a ballroom wedding gown, even if traditional gorgeousness isn't your will still LOVE this wedding. It's impossible not to. Photographed by Gia Canali and designed by the world famous Yifat Oren, this wedding is the definition of beauty. It's perfection through and through.

And I have to say...a ballroom gown on a beach has to be one of my favorite wedding luxuries. It's impossibly gorgeous and will forever be a look that gives me butterflies. The gown in particular, by Monique of course, just might be as close to perfect as you can get, setting the tone for the ridiculously beautiful wedding to follow.

As for flowers, I love, love, love the concept that GD Designers put together for the affair. For a really expensive, absolutely luxurious affair, the flowers were a welcome, understated style.  They were muted, they were organic, they were simply stunning. And the invitations, designed by Jennifer at Tiny Pine Press. Ummm...hello gorgeous.

Here area a few deails from Gia Canali, the photographer behind these perfect images...

Jennifer Parsons of Tiny Pine Press designed gorgeous stationery across the board.  The save-the-dates were printed on wooden paper and a luscious handmade paper and wrapped in turquoise blue threads.  The invites were letterpressed on handmade paper and mounted on wooden paper (like the opposite of the save the dates) -- with little turquoise waves stitched in at the top. The decor behind this wedding was perfect--simple, modern, earthy, and sweet.  Each event, from the beginning to end, was planned to be fun and meaningful -- with good food and lots of time for friends.  There were surprises, too, like fireworks at midnight! Each groomsman's boutonniere matched a bridesmaid's bouquet, featuring a single (different) bloom.  My favorite boutonniere featured something that looked like asparagus.
