I selected imagery shot by photographers who wowed me with beautiful pictures that tell a beautiful story. > a conversation with grace ormonde:

Photography: Maring Visuals/Maring Photography Inc.

Why do you show so much décor in your magazine? We feel very strongly that our

readers want to see tabletops, ceremony sites, lounges and after-party ideas and it I’ll never forget the day that Grace told me that the magazine was going national. Now 18 issues and 10 years later, I feel like she is such an innovator always envisioning what to do next to keep our reader engaged. Her latest vision—this very issue— is just another way that she is setting the trends and showing everyone that she still has another trick or two up her sleeve. Why did you decide to launch a digital edition of your magazine? Even though we have distribution in several countries abroad, we have such a large following worldwide (from Europe to Brazil, Dubai, Canada and so forth) that I wanted to cre-

ate something that anyone can access anywhere in the world at any time they want on their computer or e-reader. When you are deciding on content for each issue what serves as your inspiration? I am always inspired when I travel, whether it is places that I have been to once or frequented over the years. I am also

inspired by places that I have never been to and that intrigue me like the fashion designer hotel feature

we are running in this issue. I hope they inspire you too.

is my job to make it easy for them to access what they want and to

inspire them. What is your favorite destination? Now there’s

a problem. That’s like asking me: what is your favorite shoe? Just like shoes, I have

so many favorites—and there are still so many places that I want to visit—that it’s too hard to choose. Try asking me again in a year.

You consistently pick stories of love for your feature weddings. What kinds of stories did you pick this time for the digital issue? In this issue

we featured seven weddings around the world: Lake Como, Miami, Aspen,

Los Angeles, Beirut and New York. I selected imagery shot by pho-

tographers who wowed me with beautiful pictures that tell a beautiful story. What’s next? Stay tuned …

Grand Hotel Villa Serbelloni Bellagio, Italy villaserbelloni.com >

Many times, when faced with the thought of where the most romantic place in the world to get married is, a couple will respond Paris, Napa, Venice, Maui or New York. If Lake Como, Italy didn’t come to mind, you will surely be enticed after one glimpse of its alluring waters, majestic mountains, enchanting gardens and historic properties. GRACE ORMONDE WEDDING STYLE


The stomping grounds of George Clooney, Madonna and Sir Richard Branson, Lake Como is comprised of three major branches navigated via a triangular boat service. Since religious weddings can only take place within the church, many couples opt to get married in the Church of San Giorgio in Varenna, Como Cathedral or Basilica of

Sant’Abbondio in Como, or Church of the Ascension in Cadenabbia. Civil ceremonies are available at many of the area’s town halls or can be officiated at one of Lake Como’s incredible villas. After the ceremony, taking pictures walking through the cobbled alleyways, café-filled piazzas and along the pristine shorelines of any of the lake’s major villages–Bellagio,

... insisting they were made for each other. It turns out, their friends were right. Chris proposed in January of 2011 aided by a scrapbook filled with the reasons why he loved Melisa and a diamond ring tucked into one of the pages. Intrigued by the idea of an overseas destination wedding, the couple was elated when they secured an historic Italian setting, Villa del Balbianello, for their September wedding. “We loved the idea of a celebration with a


89

timeless, Old World feel,” Melisa admits. “Because the venue was so beautiful, we kept everything very elegant and simple.” They recited their vows under a romantic ivy-covered loggia overlooking Lake Como.


Cocktails were served in the garden and a candlelit dinner for 100 followed. “I would not have changed a thing,” the bride reflects. “It was a wonderful time to spend with our family and friends, and the perfect beginning to our lives together.” The newlyweds spent the next two weeks in Africa on safari and exploring the beauty of the Seychelle Islands. > Written by Dina M.

handsome guy? I’ve never seen him in Belgium,” Ilya Prigogine recalls inquiring. Moments later, David Dzialowski introduced himself, stunned that they had never met before.

Ilya Prigogine and David Dzialowski November 20, ‘11 Miami, Florida

The party was for David’s friend, whose sister Ilya knew well. Ilya’s uncle was David’s doctor. They had more than shared connections, though, and within two months, their jetsetting lives were entwined. On their second anniversary, while dining fireside on a Vietnam beach, David proposed


unexpectedly. “I said ‘Yes,’ and then called everybody, all around the world,” Ilya says. Musicians and their photographer journeyed from Israel, drummers from Africa, a videographer from France, DJs from Las Vegas, a designer from Belgium, and 160 guests from


101


far-flung locales all over the world. The destination: Miami because its flora and climate is reminiscent of Ilya’s childhood in Congo. Nicole Braghin orchestrated. It was “amazing how she understood,” Ilya says.


Five days of distinctive celebrations crescendoed to their emotional vows on the Mandarin Oriental Miami’s beach. “At the last minute, we bought 160 umbrellas,” says David, but skies cleared. Things reliably work out; they cherish each other’s optimism.


The couple unwound in Turks and Caicos for a few days and, when her career as an attorney and his in IT allow, they envision a lengthier honeymoon. > Written by Kim Knox Beckius more at weddingstylemagazine.com

Ginger Faye Brice and Ernest Martin Bruni, IV June 11, ‘11 Aspen, Colorado


... “our sisters would tease us that they would love for us to get married one day so they could be sisters,” says Ginger. After 13 years together, their wish came true and the couple decided to tie the knot. Ernest proposed on Ginger’s birthday stringing the ring around their dog Lyndon’s neck with a sign saying: “Will You Marry Me?” Afterwards they celebrated with a crawfish boil at Texas’ Lake Casa Blanca park surrounded by their family and friends.


112

The June wedding was full of energy and fresh snow at Aspen’s Little Nell. Bearing the cold weather, Ginger walked down the aisle to The Rolling Stone’s “Wild Horses.” “We both love music,” Ginger explains. For the reception, guests made their way to the top of Aspen Mountain via a gondola. A champagne fountain and French 75 cocktails flowed all night, while guests danced to


big-band style music. At 1 a.m., the band transformed into a New Orleans style marching band and followed everyone out. Coinciding with the Film Festival, the couple’s honeymoon at the Four Seasons Resort Maui was filled with plenty of celebrity spotting and watersports at Wailea Beach. > Written by Elizabeth Monahan more at weddingstylemagazine.com

> SANDALS

RESORTS :

When you’re looking for the very best Caribbean experience come to the resorts that know the Caribbean best. My family and I have been swimming and fishing in these crystal-clear waters and enjoying all the simple pleasures of island life for generations. Nowhere else will you find such breathtaking beaches, vibrant botanical gardens, warm and caring people, and every pleasure in paradise that creates a truly unforgettable vacation, Our unique and luxurious accommodations, endless choices in gourmet dining, exciting land and watersports, and the highest standards of service are what sets us apart. We’re taken the best of the Caribbean, added the best of everything else and included it all! Only Sandals provides more quality inclusions than any other resorts on the planet. This is our Caribbean; it is our home. We invite you to come share it with us.

Gordon “Butch” Stewart Chairman, Sandals Resorts > Special Advertising Section

Revel in some of the world’s most romantic beachfront settings at Sandals® Resorts, the Luxury Included® Honeymoon, because your first vacation as husband and wife should not mean compromising, it should fulfill your every desire with an unprecedented new level of supreme perfection. From the restaurants to the accommodations, watersports, golf, entertainment and all of the beauty that the Caribbean islands have to offer, come experience the Sandals Luxury Included® difference.


> Special Advertising Section


When most people think of the Caribbean they conjure up a lucid picture of pristine, white sandy beaches, beckoning blue water and the hospitable people that inhabit it. Boasting 14 properties in Jamaica, Antigua, Saint Lucia and the Bahamas, Sandals Resorts pays homage to the unique flavor of the islands, while bringing an unmatched level of luxury and romance for two people in love. Book a Sandals honeymoon and enjoy the perfect start to the perfect marriage with included special touches* such as a bottle of sparkling wine, turndown service with tropical flower petals, and on one morning, full breakfast-in-bed and mimosas. Dedicated to couples in love, consider a Sandals honeymoon. Located in the Bahamas, in the secluded Bahamian Out Islands, Sandals Emerald Bay, is one of the newest Sandals Resorts. Lying deep within the idyllic waters of The Exumas, the resort was built on a privileged enclave complete with elegantly-appointed villas and suites. Its grounds encompass 500 tropical acres, a mile-long *To qualify for the free Honeymoon inclusions, check in online at www.checkin.sandals.com after your booking with your honeymoon. + Greens fees additions at Sandals Emerald Bay.

beach, two impressive pools (including a grand, zero-entry pool with a dramatic firepit), seven exceptional restaurants, a championship Greg Norman-designed golf+ course, 29,000-square foot Red Lane® Spa featuring Dermologica® products, and emerald waters renowned for their boating, fishing and diving, all of which create an experience where each couple feels as if they are the only ones there. Also in the Bahamas, on Cable Beach, Sandals Royal Bahamian, or “The Pearl of the Caribbean,” inhabits the former, famed 1040s Balmoral Club known for being the epicenter of high society as brought about by the Duke and Duchess of Windsor. Still an oasis of grandeur, guests in the highest tiered suites arrive via a complimentary chauffeur-driven Rolls-Royce or Mercedes-Benz. Once there, you are given the chance to experience two vacations: the main resort and the exotic, offshore island accessible via boat launch. On the island guests will find themselves submerged in a romantic retreat featuring two coastlines, chic beach club, signature pool with a swim-up bar, the exquisite Red Lane® Spa, and perhaps the best seafood around. Resort-wide amenities include 10 restaurants, unlimited access to watersports and exuberant nightlife. The first-ever, boutique-style Sandals Resort, Sandals Royal Plantation is located at the bottom of the rolling St. Ann Mountains in Ochos Rios on the north coast of Jamaica. Juxtaposed between two private cove beaches, Sandals Royal Plantation is an all-butler, all-oceanfront suite resort tucked into a magnificent coral bluff. Providing unmatched attention to detail and a member of the presitigous Leading Hotels of the World, resort amenities include use of the bluff-top freshwater pool with two whirlpools, Sandals’ comprehensive scuba diving program with a watersport pavilion, complimentary use of the nearby 18-hole golf course, award-winning dining, and privileges at the neighboring Sandals Grande Riviera Beach & Villa Golf Resort. For couples seeking the epitome of romance, consider staying in a Love Nest Dream Suite. Amongst the most popular are the Millionaire Suites in Saint Lucia designed for heavenly seclusion offering 180° ocean views. Other highlights include a two-story sundeck, zero-entry pool with a waterfall and stone whirpool. Enjoy being on top of the world!

South Africa welcomes travelers from around the world tempting them with its widely divergent attractions from exotic safaris in Kruger National Park to award-winning vineyards primarily in The Winelands of Stellenbosch, Wellington, Paarl and Franschhoek, waterfront cosmopolitan cities like vibrant Cape Town (don’t forget to check out Table Mountain) and the land of eternal Carnival, Durban.

After all of this activity, sustenance is key. If you end up in Knysna, this area’s cuisine incorporates locally-cultivated oysters and they are said to be divine. If you find yourself in Oudtshoorn, a local delicacy is ostrich. With a motto of “unity in diversity,” South Africa is an extremely sundry country and accepts all walks of life.

A derivative of the French word “bouder”— which means to pout—boudoir photography today is more like fashion-forward art than pinup-style puff. But one thing remains the same: when viewing a truly great boudoir session, one might feel like they are peering GRACE ORMONDE WEDDING STYLE

cessories you want to use. Remember, too many options are better than too few. Practice different poses; search inspiration boards, look at your photographer’s website, even try flipping through lingerie catalogues and see what will highlight your assets. Think about what makes you feel most comfortable and bring plenty of examples. Trust that your photographer will capture what you have envisioned; that is why you hired them. Although they will guide you through the process, it is always helpful to have another set of eyes. If possible, bring someone with you or check to see if your photographer has an assistant that can help with the little details, while they concentrate on the bigger picture. If you still find yourself feeling a bit guarded, try playing your favorite music, light some candles and have a glass of wine to help you relax. Remember, sexy can be so clichÊ, when it is really all about confidence.

each other as children, but when Monique Glosman spotted 19-year-old Erik Vayntrub on college break she thought, “He’s really grown up!”

Monique Glosman and Erik Vayntrub November 12, ‘11 Los Angeles, California


He became her first boyfriend, and although they attended college on opposite coasts, they made it work. For years they flew back and forth as she finished dental school and he got his law degree. On the night of a big family Hanukkah party he picked her up with a large gift box in hand. As she unwrapped layer after layer of


tissue paper and boxes, Monique kept repeating how badly she felt about not having a present for him yet. Then she finally opened the ring. Erik was ready with a sweet reply: “The biggest gift you can give me today is to say that you’ll be my wife.” The wedding for 360 people, at the Millennium Biltmore Hotel in Los Angeles, had a 20-person orchestra playing for the ceremony, a 12-person band for the cocktail hour, and a stage full of musicians for the reception. The beautiful venue glittered with

the light of hundreds of candles as guests danced and celebrated the happy couple. “I had dreams of what I wanted for my wedding and this was everything I dreamt and more,� says Monique. Afterwards they headed to the Four Seasons Resort Bora Bora where relaxation was inter-

spersed with a helicopter ride, scuba diving and lunch on a private island. > Written by Francine Kaplan more at weddingstylemagazine.com

Mohamad Al Sawan, spotted Karen at a local lounge and abandoned his friends. “He asked so many questions that night,� says Karen, who jokes that she passed his test. Three years later, Moe accompanied Karen to Dubai for work, booking the presidential suite at The Ritz-Carlton. On their last day, she was eager to go shopping, while he


wanted to enjoy a leisurely breakfast. As she hurried to get dressed, he nervously gave her a hug while fumbling the ring box. “When it was finally open, I was so confused,” says Karen. Then he went down on one knee and proposed, and she said, “Yes.” The traditional formal Muslim wedding ceremony was followed by a reception under the stars. With fireworks overhead, Karen felt as if she was floating in the skies. A cool vibe was created with polished ice bars, ice angels, blue lighting, crystal tables and white furniture. “Mohamad and I never wanted the night to end,” says Karen. During their honeymoon in Southern Italy, they took in the picture postcard scenery, cruised to hidden grottos, sampled sumptuous fare and explored the local shops. > Written by Francine Kaplan more at weddingstylemagazine.com

... her party complimentary food and drinks, prompted her to say, “If you ever come my way, let me take you out.” A smitten Michael flew westward the very next weekend saying that he was in Las Vegas on business. “We got along great and laughed the entire time,” says Michelle, who agreed to be flown back to Long Island the following weekend.


The commuter romance continued until the night Michael took Michelle up in a helicopter and proposed over strawberries and champagne, while hovering above the Vegas strip. Michelle spent months looking for a unique, private venue and discovered the “picture perfect” Oheka Castle. “It was my castle for a night, and I utilized every space they had,”

she says. The couple’s monogram appeared on floors, walls, champagne glasses and candy jars, while regal white orchid arrangements adorned the tables. “It was exceptional when I walked into the ballroom and saw my vision brought to life,” says Michelle.


Though they no longer commute to see each other, Michelle and Michael are still accruing sky miles: “Our honeymoon has lasted a year with trips to London, Paris and Hawaii among others,” says Michelle. “We plan to travel everywhere we can before having kids.” > Written by Francine Kaplan more at weddingstylemagazine.com

... and Carolina talked about everything on that trip and became a couple a month later. A year and a half after that, while in Savannah, Ga., Danny rushed Carolina through dinner to take her by horse and carriage to


one of the city’s most famous squares. The driver explained that couples who kiss under the gazebo are promised a lifetime of love and happiness together. Danny decided to give it a try, and as they reached the spot he went down on one knee saying, “Will you marry me?” A shocked moment of silence preceded Carolina’s excited, “Yes, yes!” The ceremony at the parish where both families attend mass was very meaningful, and yet Carolina remembers being so entranced


that they were giddy. “We only had eyes for one another,” she says. For the reception at the Mandarin Oriental Miami, Carolina chose a white and green color palette with blush lighting. “The ambiance was ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream,’” she says. “Lightweight, airy and romantic.” Out on the dance floor, the couple sang to


each other and Danny mimed the words to their song. “The night was so full of love it was wonderful,� says Carolina. An extended honeymoon took them to the Dominican Republic, New Zealand and Fiji,


where they wound down from planning their wedding and toured the countryside. > Written by Francince Kaplan more at weddingstylemagazine.com
