B.C. couples might find it tough to plan a destination wedding in the next little while—but choosing wedding decor inspired by your favourite getaway might be the next best thing. Here, planner Chrissie Vides of DreamGroup collaborated with some of her favourite local wedding vendors to show just how you can pull off a look that takes its cues from afar. "This 'Forever Frida' editorial shoot was inspired by my love for the Latino community (and Frida Kahlo, of course)," says Vides. "As someone married to a Latino and who travels to Latin American countries often, my goal was to create a vibrant and romantic setting which makes you feel like you are dining in the courtyard of a palatial hacienda." With lush florals and succulents, rich colours and raw natural details, we're transported.
