The Love Story

Sophie and Kevin’s love story began during a fitness class, just as Sophie had settled into her new life in the city.

Saying 'Yes' to The Dress

When searching for her dream gown, Sophie had a specific brief to fit, she was looking for a high-neck crepe dress that was “unique but stood the test of time”. When Sophie came across the Margot gown at our Seattle boutique, she instantly fell in love with the design.

 

To complement her gown, Sophie chose to accessorize with the Gabriela Veil, a breath-taking long veil making it the perfect addition to her dress for an understated yet bold and effortlessly elegant look. Sophie felt her wedding dress was undoubtedly the ultimate match and perfectly complemented how she saw herself as a Grace bride, “someone who is confident and sexy. She is passionate and lives life to the fullest. She brings energy to every room she enters”.
