Illume Gowns Bridal Photoshoot

Two group collaborations in a week! I know, it’s a little crazy, but I have been given some amazing opportunities lately to work with some outstanding local designers. Today I get to share a shoot with you that I was able to be part of for Illume Gowns.

Though not exactly local, Illume will hopefully soon be in stores in Utah because of their chic style and modest design. They are located in Southern California, but have an easy to access website and will be at Provo Fashion Week this coming Spring! During the shoot, I was able to talk to the designer, Sara Sandberg, and find out why she started her business. She is on her second collection, but has been making gorgeous wedding dresses for friends for what seems like forever. So, she thought, why not make a business out of it. Since I’m not married, I haven’t experienced this firsthand, but I have had numerous friends who can’t seem to find just the right wedding dress that is still modest, AND looks cute! Sara has solved this problem! All of her dresses are designed specifically for this purpose.

A few of us got to try on her dresses, get our hair and makeup done, and do a photo shoot with some fabulous photographers. It was so fun. I can definitely vouch for the quality and the beauty up close of each of the dresses. P.S. a few of the dresses (like mine) have pockets! Ah I love it! If you are looking for a wedding dress, be sure to visit Illume Gowns! It will probably save you a lot of looking!
