At the edge of West Vancouver in the lush oceanside Whytecliff Park, friends gathered to create the first release of Beaux Fall/Winter 2015 Wedding. The glacier grey wool bow ties paired with mismatched dapper grey suits on the gents and airy blush shades for the ladies blended subtle tones as these party goers bid a gentle adieu to the summer months.
Glacier grey bow ties added a touch of fall chill to the come-as-you-please grey suits that befit this nature filled late afternoon.Groomsmen Carmine and Anton's easy approach to the big day let their personal style shine through while Barrett opted to tie in the bridesmaids' blush with a matching hand dyed blush linen pocket square.
The bride, Carmen, wore a satin and tulle sweetheart strapless gown from the North Shore local atelier Isabelle's Bridal, which allowed her natural beauty to take centre stage. Her bridesmaids, Nitu and Jessica, wore dusty blush silk Zara sleeveless tops and handmade pale blush skirts for a rustic woodland feel.
Wonderful staging by the amazing Nicole and Holly of Past Pieces set the mood for the bridal party's scotch and tea table where the handsome groom, Barrett and his trusty groomsmen, Carmine and Anton, enjoyed some 15 year old Laphroaig.
Carmen's hair was artfully crafted to withstand the strong western breeze by Freddy at Moods Hair Salon in Yaletown. The talented make-up artist, Tianna Tran, one of the big hearts behind A Wish to Wed Society, created a dewy natural look befitting of Carmen's laid back personal style.
Awesome flowers supplied by Queensberry Flowers in Vancouver were the perfect finishing touch for the scotch and tea table, the ladies' bouquets and the gents' boutonnieres.
All this rustic love was effortlessly captured by the unparalleled Vancouver based wedding photographer, John Bello. The mastermind behind the event with her extensive organizing of every little detail, (and trust me, we saved the best for last) was Theresa of DiamondsxDreams Event Planning.
Recently featured on the ingenious Canadian Wedding blog, Style Me Pretty, Beaux was honoured to grace the necks of the handsome groom and groomsmen in a local Vancouver wedding that took place Fall of 2014. Rich shades and effortless luxury set the tone for this couple's romantic day of celebration. Photographer Dallas Kolotylo perfectly captured the moody elegance of the day's events.

On a gorgeous sunny day in June along the shore of Lake Ontario, two of our favourite people tied the knot. They tied it with so much style, elegance, and happiness that we just had to post about this amazing celebration.
Beautiful from head to toe,
inside and out.
The look of love.
A black and white affair: champagne paisley ties on the groomsmen and a crisp black satin bow tie for Mike.
Mix & match bridesmaids dresses in the perfect pastel palette.
And it came together beautifully.
A million emotions captured in one look.
A very good cause for celebration.
Special thanks to Megan and Mike for letting us post these stunning photos!
With the perfect backdrop in the most beautiful park on earth (recently crowned by TripAdvisor!), we styled a Beaux wedding photo shoot with soft purple shades as our accent colour to the classic black and white. The groomsmen looked handsome in a masculine shade of mauve/plum chambray with its awesome texture adding more interest to the look. Our dapper groom wore a skinny tie to stand out from his crew.
This great wedding look is proof that men can look dashing in more laid back fabrics such as this purple chambray - even paired with black tuxedos! Dress it up with a beautiful boutannier and a patterned or solid white pocket square and the boys will be more than ready for the big day.
A happy man.
Shades of purple.
The wedding party.
They know they look good…
Lovely in lace.
Lauren in Truvelle.
