These windswept beach bridals are to die for gorgeous! This beautiful model is wearing our Florence gown. Thanks to the talented Ashlee Raubach for the photos. We love the beach hair and make-up created by beauti_fil; and the show stopping florals are designed by Posey Pop. We always feel honored to get to work with talented women!
This fun spring inspired shoot features a new gown we may put into our fall 2015 collection. This non traditional gown is for a confident bride; it is two-pieces, highlights the waist, ankle length made from guipure lace. We would love your thoughts, should we make this gown available?
A pretty talented team lent their efforts to this shoot.
In February Illume had the opportunity to be a part of Provo Fashion Week!
Taking place in Provo Utah, this event brings together local independent fashion designers, style bloggers, photographers, press, buyers, and fashion-lovers. We were honored to be a part of it. The first day of the show featured general fashion from various designers with a wide range styles. The second day was dedicated to bridal designers. Our designer Sara Sandberg was able to present her Spring collection and gave a sneak peak of some designs coming this Fall.
We had a lot of help from a great team.

Tinge Floral created our hair pieces. http://tingefloral.com/
Dillards was so generous to lend us jewelry and shoes to compliment our gowns.
We also had the chance to work with models in the area, one of whom was Sara’s own sister.
It took a lot of hard work but we had a blast doing it! We are so glad we were able to be a part of this event and hope to come back to Provo soon.
Check in often for updates!

We love these gorgeous photos of our Austen gown taken by the talented Suzy O Photography. Suzy wanted to incorporate both a traditional, high-contrast photographic lighting technique (similar to what you would see in the 1920s) and a modern “fresh” feeling that is a current trend. Stunning Megan, of Chestnut Hill, is the picture of elegancy and femininity. Make-up by Jessica Craig and Hair by Alyse Peterson. The florals are by Carol Kingston of Creative Wedding Events.
