Ritz-Carlton Weddings - July 2014 - (Page 20)

trends BEACHFRONT BLISS The Ritz-Carlton, Herzliya offers stunning views of Israel's largest marina and the Mediterranean Sea. Given my love of travel, this chic and worldly destination would be the perfect place to celebrate. JEWEL OF THE AISLE I love stones that make big, bold statements - especially diamonds! Shinde diamond earrings (price upon request), by Harry Winston (harrywinston.com). GO-TO GOWN The Muse REEM ACRA SHARES HER VISION FOR A CLASSIC FIVE-STAR AFFAIR IN BLOOM Roses are iconic. I love combining all shades of pink and red roses, but for the bridal bouquet, I prefer white. Famed dress designer Reem Acra is no stranger to success - celebrities have been wearing her exquisite gowns for more than a decade. Now, she's spilling her secrets for a winning Ritz-Carlton wedding celebration. DRESS CODE I love a classic navy tuxedo for the groom - how dapper is Ryan Gosling in blue? - and the bridal party would wear custom-made dresses in a pale pink and red color palette. Loulou, my Maltese, would certainly make an appearance! She has her own couture wardrobe and loves to dress up. Loulou would look like a star and would most likely wear feathers around her neck, something she loves. Sheath dress ($2,500), by Reem Acra (reemacra.com). 20 W E D D I N G S B Y T H E R I T Z - C A R LT O N EMPIRE STATE The Ottoman Empire would inform the theme, from the venue and d├ęcor to a honeymoon in Bodrum, Turkey - one of my favorite destinations. The inspiration from that culture is endless: The colors are vibrant, the textures are rich, and the mood is pure mystique!
