We were fortunate enough to attend the opening of the Kleinfeld Bridal Boutique at The Hudson’s Bay in Toronto recently, and it was quite possibly the most elegant event we have ever attended. Located on the 7th floor of the expansive Queen Street West location, the all-white 20,000 sq./ft. salon was filled with beautiful white flowers, Godiva’s chocolate buffet, and all of Toronto’s fashion lovers.
