A Grande AffaireThe wedding day can be the most important day of a girl’s life and Robert Torres, creative director from Grande Affaires, is an expert on how to make the most of that special day.
"As a designer, I believe it’s my job NOT to do what is expected or common. I’m always soul searching for a fresh approach. Of course, this is easier to do with some clients than with others."
The magic arrives during the initial planning. The client is the inspiration and the key is to listen. By listening, a good wedding planner will begin to see the vision come together – and it all starts with THE DRESS!
The Venue: Fontainebleau
Aside from the dress, the wedding venue might be the most important detail. Miami has many great places to throw a wedding and certainly one of the best is the Fontainebleau.
Fontainebleau is a canvas for the imagination. Unique, chic, traditional or unconventional - mix in the pleasures of luxury surroundings, fine cuisine and superlative venues with striking sophistication.
