Rivini | Designer Profile


Rivini is making it easier than ever to stay true to your personal style when it comes to your wedding dress.

Canadian bridal designer Rita Vinieris designs both the main Rivini line as well as Alyne Bridal by Rita Vinieris. Both collections offer minimal architectural-style designs that whisper luxury.

Rivini Astrid Wedding Dress

For Rivini, Rita combines luxurious textiles in layers to produce feminine, effortless wedding dresses made of silk satins, silk tulle, crepes and different types of lace and organza. The end result is delicate gowns that move in delightfully soft, natural ways.

Fabric varieties and layers intermingle but never compete, creating a cohesive look that is textured but still elegant and always well-tailored.

Instead of dazzling embellishment, the detail is often in the structure of the gown. Precise darting, pleating and folding all done in soft, sophisticated ways, creating visual interest, as well as a great fit.

Embroidery is all done in-house, guaranteeing a one-of-a-kind look. When used, intricate beading isn’t merely an accent, it’s often built into the structure of the dress so it looks as if it is one with the material. The end result is a shimmery, fluid look that dazzles and looks as if it glows from within. Just how one should look on their wedding day.

Silhouettes suitable for all body types are represented, from sleek and chic sheaths to extravagant ball gowns. Sheer panels and seductive cut outs offer a hint of sensuality, but never in a tasteless fashion. The attention to detail in the creation of these wedding gowns is key.

Recent Rivini looks have experimented with sleeves, from the barest off-the-shoulder looks to three-quarter and Dolman sleeves to long, sheer options. Rita Vinieris has stated she finds the return of sleeves to bridal fashion “refreshing” and that she found strapless looks had grown a bit predictable.

Recommending brides stay true to their own personal style on their wedding day, Rita Vinieris makes this possible, producing a refined version of everyday modern styles perfect for the aisle. Garden wedding, ballroom affairs and glamourous church ceremony would be stunning venues for a Rivini gown.

Alexandra + Jonathan | Rivini Wedding from Jill Doty Photography


Long before the wedding vows and first dances, there are meetings and first kisses. For Alexandra and Jonathan, what brought them even closer was a health scare for Alexandra. This couple certainly had a lot to celebrate at their wedding, which they pulled off with sophisticated style. Fluffy pink florals, classic candlelit ambience and their closest friends and family made this romantic wedding most memorable indeed. Alexandra’s A-line Rivini wedding dress was a stunning addition, perfectly suited for the occasion and for her glowing smile.

The Ceremony
Jonathan and I met on October 15, 2011 volunteering at the JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes in Atlanta’s Centennial Park. We started dating shortly thereafter. On February 2, 2012, I had a seizure while at dinner and was diagnosed with stage three brain cancer two days later. Jonathan was there for my craniotomy, drove me to daily radiation and sat by my side through each round of chemotherapy. He provided so much joy, laughter and love through such a difficult time. After nine months of treatment and a year of utter bliss, we got engaged in Atlanta on November 21, 2013. He’s truly my best friend and love of my life. We’re so blessed to have found one another!

Our ceremony was at Druid Hills Presbyterian Church. I fell in love with the church’s stunning stained glass windows that let in so much light. It has such a clean, yet traditional, look with hardwood floors, pews and unbelievable stained oak ceiling. The bridal suite was enormous! The entire bridal party was able to get ready on-location. The staff was so nice and accommodating. I’m so grateful for the opportunity to get married there.

The Reception
Our reception was at Summerour Studio. We went with a modern-romantic vibe. I wanted a very clean look with lots of candles and fluffy white flowers. We focused the entire layout around the dancefloor because we wanted our wedding to be a celebration with all of our dearest family and friends.

Alexandra’s Dress Search
I tried on about four dresses at one bridal salon. I fell in love with my dress because it looked like a cloud. It was so light and delicate with a cinched in waist.

Why Alexandra Decided to Sell Her Wedding Dress
I didn’t want such an incredible dress to sit in storage for 50 years. I want another bride to get to experience the same joy I felt on my wedding day.
