Rituals Bride - Kristen and Riley

With mountain views, cityscapes, and sparkling waves in the background, Kristen and Riley didn't have to travel far to find the most beautiful setting for their dream wedding. The Wallace in North Vancouver provided the perfect all-in-one package that hosted the couple's ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception which exceeded all their expectations. 

To compliment the upscale look of their venue, Kristen wore our geometric Newhite IM gown. The pleated satin jersey shone under the setting sun and its matching detachable sleeves with a flared cuff added the perfect touch of elegance to the modern look. 

The couple's favourite part of the day: Kristen and Riley were truly enamoured with the ritual of getting to promise their personally written vows in the presence of their closest friends and family.

Kristen’s advice for brides searching for their gown: "Try them all on!! I think it's important to get out of your comfort zone and try on several different styles, even if you think you might not like it. I always said "absolutely no sweetheart neckline" and look where we are… "
