A Perfect Red And Gold Valentine’s Day Wedding Shoot By Shannon Leahy Events
"I found the perfect wedding gowns from local San Francisco designer Trish Lee. The main wedding dress for the shoot is called The Lady. We love the supremely elegant and refined look of this gown and can imagine a bride who adores the traditions of the past but still wants a fresh and updated look slipping into this gorgeous wedding gown.”

San Francisco To A Tee
San Francisco wedding gown designer Trish Lee first learned how to make dresses from her mother, then cut her teeth at Amy Kuschel before launching an eponymous collection in January 2013. Her signature style embraces delicate cap sleeves, backless necklines, and subtle references to the 1920s and 1930s. "I love dresses that have meaning behind them. I want to instill that same artisanal spirit into my bridal gown collection."

“Kiyoka’s search for an elegant vintage style wedding dress ended with the Charlotte, a 1930s-inspired silk number by San Francisco wedding dress designer Trish Lee. The gown’s elegant cowl-neck and simple sheath silhouette are demure, which is widely regarded as the highest form of sexy.”

10 Dream San Francisco Weddings
San Francisco wedding dress designer Trish Lee created her inaugural collection of wedding gowns with a modern local leading lady in mind. With a focus on the fit and the fabric, each gown is named after an Audrey Hepburn character and made in San Francisco. (Read more about Lee in this recent San Francisco Chronicle profile.) Each of the dresses is also created with an iconic Bay Area venue in mind. On a visit to her Mint Plaza studio, Lee, who is not married, shared her unique vision for where and how a bride would wear each of her dresses.
1. Charlotte + de Young Museum. This indie bride would marry at this architectural fine arts museum Lee says, combining elements of nature with the man-made. Lee likens the Charlotte’s “architectural” cowl-draped neckline and simplicity with the bones of the statement-making building.

Trish Lee is the San Francisco wedding dress designer behind an eponymous line of wedding dresses – her inaugural collection launched in January. Named after Audrey Hepburn characters, the gowns defy many modern inclinations – they are elegant and glamorous without being flashy. "Trendy’ isn’t in her vocabulary, unless you consider the subtle ‘Gatsby’ and ‘Downton Abbey’-era silhouettes a trend." Lee, 33, focuses on the fit and fabric rather than "the bling of the dress’"– a classic idea, really, but something that in recent times seems to have given way to rushed construction and cookie-cutter styles.
