Heading into the day of the photoshoot, San Francisco received the most rain it has seen in years. Erica was determined to shoot rain or shine and that she did. The scent of fresh rain in the air lent a calm after the storm. Model is wearing Zoe, our bohemian lace wedding dress from the 2015 Collection. Unfettered and floating over your body, with a cascade ruffle that flows into the train, Zoe is for the girl who splashes in rain puddles on her wedding day and takes gorgeous pictures in the eye of the storm.

2015 Collection Debuts at And Something Blue

Join us for a trunk show at And Something Blue

November 14th - 16th!

From the designer:

Inspired by the white moth and vintage lingerie, the 2015 Trish Lee San Francisco Bridal Gown Collection is sensual and relaxed. I wanted to soften it up and let loose a little. The gowns are a bit more stripped down and unbuttoned than previous years. By letting the silk and lace float over the body, the feminine form is better highlighted in its natural state.

We're thrilled to be offering our San Francisco brides a chance to preview the 2015 Collection early. And Something Blue is not your mother's bridal shop - a mix of Parisian chic and urban grit? Yes, please! Make a bridal appointment today. 

Trish Lee San Francisco Launches New Look

Amazing new campaign shot by the talented photographer Britt Rene at the Hotel Shattuck Plaza in Berkeley, CA. Fine emerald jewels, champagne coupes, and pin-up curls were the embodiment of old Hollywood glamour.

Trish Lee San Francisco wedding dresses speak to the iconoclast. The vintage inspired wedding dresses are handmade in San Francisco. The simple wedding dresses are anything but simple - designed with the modern bride in mind, Trish Lee follows the less is more ethos. The Trish Lee bride is discriminating in taste and forges her own path in this world. 

Simplicity is about subtracting the obvious and adding the meaningful.

Featured on Wedding Spot – Top 6 Bridal Trends for 2014 by Trish Lee

Top 6 Bridal Trends for 2014

Wedding Spot is the premiere source for finding your wedding venue – think Kayak for wedding venues. In a Wedding Spot three-part series, San Francisco wedding dress designer Trish Lee gives her expert advice on all things bridal. Once you’re familiar with the wedding dress silhouettes out there, (and if you’re still unsure, check out 7 Timeless Wedding Dress Styles piece) the next step is to think about the style of your gown and the details of your outfit. Over the last few years, I’ve seen trends come and go, but these are the top 6 trends with staying power.

1. Vintage inspired details

Celebrity icon: Kate Bosworth


Kate Bosworth had two dressings. The second by Chloe (left picture) is a beautiful vintage number she wore to her reception. I’ve seen brides build a wedding day look that honors a vintage aesthetic by incorporating family heirloom pieces such as a classic veil with lace, jewelry passed down through the generations, or re-purposing items like the pearl buttons from a mother’s or grandmother’s dress. This trend certainly adds an air of elegance and significance to any bride’s ensemble. Other ways of channeling this trend include wearing soft pastel toned satin ribbon or silk sashes with rhinestone brooches with antique metal finishes, finding a gown with intricate beading, or incorporating feathers — on the dress, or in your hair.

2. Sleeves

Celebrity icon: Audrey Hepburn



One of the enduring trends I predict for this year is lace sleeves: cap sleeves, long sleeves or three-quarter length sleeves. This style adds a touch of old-world romance as well as offering a little coverage. Plus, you can’t get much more elegant and timeless than Audrey Hepburn — as if you needed more than that to convince you.

Junebug Weddings - Wedding Dress Shopping Tips by Trish Lee

Wedding Dress Shopping 101

Bridal gown shopping tips from San Francisco wedding dress designer Trish Lee

Finding the perfect wedding dress is without a doubt one of the most exciting decisions for a bride-to-be! Quite possibly the most beautiful garment you will ever wear. Choosing your wedding dress should be an experience of a lifetime, but for many brides, the prospect of finding “The One” can be an overwhelming and even daunting task. So, we’ve asked Trish Lee, an up-and-coming San Francisco bridal gown designer specializing in bespoke vintage-inspired wedding gowns, to share her advice for navigating your wedding dress shopping process.

What can a bride do to prepare before she begins her wedding dress selection process? 

Assuming she has her venue locked down, my best advice: don’t over-think it. Pull a few looks that resonate with you so you have a starting point, set a budget, and then make an appointment. Make sure it’s on a day/time that you’ve mentally set aside for dress-shopping. Do not squeeze in a shopping appointment haphazardly. Wedding dress shopping requires your full mental presence and you’ll be doing yourself a favor if you’re prepared to assess each gown you try on and give feedback to your consultant, so she can pull the right looks for you.
