A Family Affair

Ines Di Santo launched in 1984 in Toronto, Canada, when her daughter Veronica was only nine years old. She joined the business 14 years later. Their gowns have appeared on the red carpet, including the Golden Globes and made small screen debuts in Mario & Courtney's Wedding Fiesta on TLC and My Fair Wedding with David Tutera.

Ines is a celebrated designer of bridal and evening couture, but more importantly, she gives each gown her personal touch. Her sense of glamour and vibrant femininity inspires every appointment. She custom fits luxury to your body and spirit with her mastery of tailoring and construction that has been perfected over countless brides in the United States, Canada and beyond. Combining her European aesthetic with her innate sense of design, she experiments with swathes of silk, lace, embroidery and embellishments to effortlessly create your perfect gown.

Blessed to have grown up in an atelier, Veronica, Ines' daughter inherited the same passion for couture, ensuring your experience is special in every possible way. Today she infuses her mother's classic sense of luxury with unexpected twists such as pastel color palettes and Art Déco inspired details.

Luxurious Details

Whether it's bringing French Chantilly lace to life for a countryside wedding or adding vintage inspired beadwork for a city soirée, Ines and Veronica bring their mutual love of the little things to every gown. The chic stylings are never completed without deluxe necessities such as silk organza and taffeta, sparkling Swarovski crystals, downy Ostrich feathers or intricate Aleçon lace.

Couture Construction

While Ines inspires and delights, a team of seasoned seamstresses bring her visions to life. From sketch to dress, weeks can be devoted to a design, as artisans create each gown by hand. Sewn, embroidered and beaded in the designer's atelier, a respect for true craftsmanship ensures a fit that thrills and a dress with star power.

Red Carpet Wow

Make a red carpet statement on your wedding day. Imagine a figure-hugging lace gown with a boho chic veil to spark drama on a ranch at sunset or a train of blush pink ruffles swept up by a warm, sea breeze. Your dream dress can come true with Ines and Veronica's openhearted guidance.
