The couple decided on a ceremony and reception at the Four Seasons Hotel Vancouver and a colour palette of pale pinks, white, silver and navy helped to bring their wedding vision to life.
It’s official! Congrats to Sofia Vergara ( Modern Family) and Joe Manganiello (Magic Mike XXL, lucky girl I know) on the gorgeous wedding; fitting for the gorgeous couple.
Weddings are a celebration of love; and luckily for me, a celebration that holds some of the most yummy treats! Of course, the wedding cake is the star of the show. But the wedding cake isn’t just there for you to drool over all night, it has a lot of tradition packed into the tiers!
