Bora Bora is love at first sight. With Mount Otemanu towering over the island, a backdrop to the beautiful white-sand beaches and turquoise lagoon, Bora Bora has been described as majestic, romantic and the most beautiful island in the world.

Enjoy views of the island and hotel taken from The St. Regis Bora Bora.
Catherine Zeta Jones married Michael Douglas in an extravagant wedding at the New York Plaza hotel. With a 40-member Welsh choir singing, 20,000 cream-colored roses and a 10-tier vanilla-and-butter-cream cake covered with thousands of sugar flowers, it’s no wonder the wedding cost $1.5 million.
Catherine wore an ivory-beaded satin sheath gown by Christian Lacroix. Her six foot chantily lace train was tucked into a diamond tiara fom Fred Leighton.
Breathtaking is the first word that comes to mind when describing Oscar de la Renta’s Bridal Spring 2013 collection. We loved every single dress that came down the runway. His collection was elegant, decadent and timeless. We loved the fabric, the lace, the colors, the florals. We loved that the dresses weren’t as traditional with the typical strapless gown. His collection included sleeves, color both bold and pastels, even a cape tulle! A truly memorable collection and the work of a genius!

Kate Moss’s wedding in 2011 was inspired by the Great Gatsby. Her dress, designed by her dear friend Galliano, had a vintage feel to it. The ivory dress was slim cut with crystal beaded hem. She looked effortless and beautiful wearing her hair down accessorized with floral headband. Photographer Mario Testino photographed the wedding for Vogue. Photos are taken from Vogue US and Vogue UK.
