Editor’s Letter My dearest Elegant bride, You’re about to enter the wonderful (and challenging) world of plan- ning a wedding and we are here to provide you with all the necessary tools and inspiration to make it happen. While choosing a dress, pick- ing out flowers and tasting cakes might rank high on your arduous list of things to do, nothing (arguably) compares to selecting the venue. For this reason, we want to get you excited about where to host your wedding as much as picking out a theme or customizing invitations with our “Spectacular Settings” issue. Dream of welcoming guests to a rustic vineyard, romantic forest or urban skyscraper? Let us take you there with our stunning selection of style shoots. As you flip through the pages of this Elegant Wedding Magazine, you will be provided with unconventional spaces filled with charac- ter as shown in our “Salvador Nights” (p. 54), “Woodland Escape” (p. 136) and “Passport to Paris” (p.78) editorials among others. As you embark on this beautiful journey, we invite you to find the very best inspiration and vendors Toronto has to offer for the biggest day of your life.
