We are so excited to announce that a new bridal collection has been adopted by the Mia Grace Bridal Family! Our newest addition, Astrid & Mercedes by Lea-Ann Belter, is inspired by Lea-Ann free-spirited and fashion-forward nieces. These wedding gowns are for ceremonies beneath trees, dancing barefoot under the stars, and doing whatever feels right on your wedding day!
About the Collection
The Astrid & Mercedes Wedding Dress Collection by Lea-Ann Belter was brought to life after the launch of Lea-Ann’s eponymous bridal line. This amazing collection is full of beautiful, carefree, and fashion-forward silhouettes inspired by Lea-Ann’s plucky, free-spirited nieces. Sewn by hand of silks and laces, the collection is patterned, cut and draped in our Toronto atelier. A distinctive blend of something old and something new, these gowns are for women who plan to strut their vibrant selves down the aisle and create their own happily ever after!
About Lea-Ann Belter
Forever painting and drawing, Lea-Ann knew from a very young age her future lay in her creativity. Upon graduating from an art-focused high school, Lea-Ann continued her formal education at the Sheridan College of Crafts and Design, where she specialized in glass and textiles. She went on to earn her diploma from the International Academy of Design and Merchandising, after which Lea-Ann trained with a couturier where she refined the characteristics that define her work – flawless execution and impeccable quality.
Lea-Ann ultimately found her calling when she designed a wedding dress for her brother’s fiancé. She found bridal was the perfect expression of her love of fashion, amazing fabrics, timeless aesthetics, and meticulous execution. Before long, Lea-Ann opened her first wedding gown boutique in the exclusive Yorkville area or Toronto! Five years later, she launched the Lea-Ann Belter Bridal Collection through a network of retailers!
