San Francisco wedding dress designer Trish Lee created her inaugural collection of wedding gowns with a modern local leading lady in mind.

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.
