::Carol Hannah at Sash & Bustle in Toronto::

Cynthia Martyn is the Creative Director and Lead Planner for {Cynthia Martyn Events Inc.,} a Toronto-based event planning & design boutique specializing in uniquely crafted, luxury wedding experiences. Her company was voted one of WedLuxe’s Best of 2010 in event planning, and on top of her event planning extraordinaire, she owns one of the city’s prettiest bridal boutiques {Sash & Bustle} in Toronto.

Recently Cynthia invited me to photograph {Carol Hanna’s} wedding collection debut in Toronto on Saturday. If you haven’t heard of Carol Hannah, she is one of the designers from {Project Runway} (Season 6). Inspired by Charleston, South Carolina‚Äôs high society and luxe boho vibe, her gowns are a combination that blend modern and elegance perfectly. Made of 100 percent silk (organza, chiffon, duchess and hammered satin, charmeuse), the collection focuses on flattering silhouettes with details like handmade trim, textured fabric, handmade flower appliques, and perfect draping. I also love that her entire collection is designed and made in New York.

Upon meeting Carol on Saturday, I quietly admitted that I hadn’t seen PR for a while, since my little guy Benjamin who is almost two keeps me on my toes. She was easy to talk with and shared how busy life has been during and since Season 6 of Project Runway. I can certainly see why. She was incredibly helpful in connecting brides with her beautiful dresses. Below are some of the dresses from her 2011 Collection and beautiful images of Cynthia’s bridal boutique, Sash & Bustle.

Gowns featured above include: Spring Street Dress, Archdale Street Gown, Beaufain Street Gown, Rutledge Avenue Gown, Meeting Street Gown and the Legave Street Gown. Learn more about the collection {here}. Stunning cake by {The Caketress}. Hair adornments by {Twigs & Honey}.

See I told you Carol Hannah is awesome. I think that’s when we were giggling about the new Starbucks Trenta coffee cup size. Yes, it’s 31 ounces. Need I say more?
