Toronto Editor-In-Chief Theo Dermatis President Stephanos Pinios Creative Director Theo Dermatis My dearest Elegant brides, Congratulations and welcome to Elegant Wedding! While you’ve begun acquainting yourself with the shiny new ring on your finger, we’ve been busy put- ting together an issue that focuses on all things fresh and fabulous to represent Mother Nature. With “Greenery” released as Pantone’s colour of the year for 2017, we felt there was no better way to celebrate the wildness of nature than with the lady of the land herself at the helm. That being said, we asked Toronto’s finest specialists to encapsulate style shoots with the elements of the world: earth, wind, water and fire. As you flip through the pages of this Elegant Wedding Magazine, you’ll find yourself Whisked Away (p. 136) by the easy breeziness of wind; quietly drifting along a Seaside Sunset (p. 70) with water; and filled with a Burning Desire (p. 58) to centre your theme on fire. We invite you to find the very best inspiration and vendors ready, willing and able to make it happen as you embark on the journey that leads to the biggest day of your life.
