Lea Ann Belter has been designing gowns since 1989. Sophisticated lines and understated details distinguish her gowns from the ordinary. She refuses to have her gowns manufactured off shore because she must oversee the workmanship herself. Each gown is entirely reverse–stitched and fully lined in silk. Hand–sewn pearls, Austrian crystals and soft delicate embroidery whisper softly of taste and elegance. Each gown is made in Toronto. Her gowns are priced between $2,300 and $5,000.
Timeless silhouettes embrace the collection from romantic ball gowns, to fluted bodies that echo the slender shape of calla lilies, and fitted low drop waists that spill into dramatic handkerchief ball gown skirts. V-neck, princess cut, illusion, cap sleeve and sculpted strapless necklines convey a sense of time-honored tradition with a modern twist. This line retails between $3,000 and $5,000.

Toni Federici is the creative force behind every veil, headpiece and accessory that features her name. An artisan with a fabric design degree, Toni began to experiment with designs while employed as a bridal consultant. This experience taught her that while a wedding dress may make a woman feel beautiful, the right veil and headpiece truly make her a bride. Inspired by this realization, Toni began her quest to produce custom, handmade bridal accessories unique to the bridal industry.
