Traditions by Anna has a special spot in the fabric of Lea-Ann Belter Bridal. Owner Anna apprenticed with Lea-Ann in our flagship Toronto bridal salon years ago! A haven for Raleigh brides-to-be since the early ‘90s, the amazing service provided by Traditions is only matched by its fabulous selection of bridal gowns, which includes both our Astrid & Mercedes and Lea-Ann Belter Bridal lines.
Anna took a breather while moving her shop to a new location to give us the story behind Traditions by Anna.
