Genève
McNally
Genève is an ideas person, an educator, and a visionary! As the founding planner of
DreamGroup Weddings + Events she has always loved connecting people and making
new opportunities happen through those connections. It is from this passion for
educating brides and connecting her beloved industry that the idea for a Bridal Style
specific resource for local brides was conceptualized. "I've long dreamt of bringing to life
a forum for brides that would not only inspire a love for bridal style options but also put
in front of them products and beautiful fashion elements that are easily accessible. So
often brides look online for inspiration only to find out that the veil. accessories, dress
or shoes they sourced and love are no longer available or not found in Canada. The goal
with BridalStyle Vancouver was to create a resource for brides focusing on local products
and designs available in our own backyard as well as easily accessible international
options. It's so important to be able to touch, feel, and try on the accessories and pieces
that you will wear on one of the most defining moments of a woman's life. This is simply
not the time for online roulette! The quality and accessibility needs to be there."

The next step in assembling this latest DreamGroup affiliated project was to find a
collaborator and partner with whom to breathe life into the next stages of the vision.
That's when DreamGroup Associate Planner Chrissie Vides stepped up and expressed
resounding interest in developing this project. "Chrissie got it right away! She saw the
potential in this idea and knew what needed to be done! That's when things started to
take shape, a newfound business venture and the magic of BridalStyle Vancouver was
born. It's very exciting to be working with someone who doesn't need to be pushed off
the ledge or convinced that an idea is worth doing! It's about knowing something is that
good and taking the chance on it. I find myself often running to catch up with Chrissie
and that's very exciting to me! I didn't think someone could get more excited about the
potential and concept behind BridalStyle Vancouver than I, but I'm happy to say Chrissie
is that person. She has vision, a can do attitude, and knows how to earn trust and make
things happen! We are on our way with this new exciting gift for Vancouver brides and
are so enthusiastic to see it continue to expand. It will be unlike anything Vancouver has
ever seen!
Chrissie
Vides
A bit of a rebel to some, while simply an "outside the box" thinker to others,
Chrissie has always walked to the beat of her own drum. A true creative,
fashion lover and entreprenur, Chrissie's versatility is her strength and her
career is a unique as it comes! "I have been so blessed to have always
worked in a creative industry and am very lucky to have worn many hats
along the way. Not only have these "hats" been so much fun to wear, but
they have allowed me to create a set of skills and experiences that is very
diverse."

With a film industry career that spans almost 2 decades, both in Los Angeles
and Vancouver, 10 years of event planning experience which includes joining
the incredible team at DreamGroup in 2018, and an immense "passion for
fashion", Chrissie was destined to collaborate with Geneve on BridalStyle
Vancouver.

"When Geneve and I first spoke about becoming BSV business partners, I was
so stoked because this would combine all of my passions and experiences-
including Fashion Styling, Film Production and Event Producing-into one!
I knew this was a once-in-a-lifetime experience and was so excited to
dive in. Geneve's experiences as a wedding industry trailblazer and her
passionate business style combined with my production expertise, along
with a multitude of fashion industry & creative connections made this
collaboration a no-brainer!"

Now in her role as Creative Director for BSV Chrissie's goal is to help expose
Vancouver brides to what this city has to offer- not only the amazing bridal
boutiques, but the uber talented designers and artisans as well! "Too often I
hear of brides going to the bigger fashion meccas and searching online for
their bridal wears and accessories when there are so many incredibly
inspiring and cutting edge options available here in Vancouver. My focus
will be in creating platforms for designers and bridal boutiques to showcase
their collections while connecting them with local brides searching for that
unforgettable look. Vancouver may not be the fashion capital of the world,
but if we have our way, it will certainly become evident that brides don't
need to look beyond our city's border when establishing her perfect bridal
look!"
