Formal/Bridal Photos with Jill Collier Photography

I thought I would finally share some of our formal/bridal photo session with Jill Collier Photography with you today! I had been waiting my whole life to put on a gorgeous wedding dress and imagined what my fiancé/husband would do when he first saw me.  In our photo session with Jill, we did a “first look”, where Cory was waiting with his back turned and I walked up behind him in my dress, while Jill was able to capture photos of him turning to see me for the first time! It was so fun, and I love being able to look back at those photos forever.

We had our formal photos taken at Memory Grove and Temple Square in Salt Lake City, UT. I love having the SLC temple as a backdrop for our photos. I personally think there is no more beautiful of a place to get married than in a temple! It seriously is like a fairytale!

You’re probably wondering why I am still rambling…. on to the photos already, amiright?? If you are getting married, or know someone getting married, I definitely recommend Jill Collier Photography as the way to go!

The Dress

My wedding dress is a Lillian West dress that I had altered to add elbow length sleeves and a liner to the backing for modesty (photos of the original dress below!). The lace and embroidery details in this dress are AMAZING. And I fell in love with the unique ivory coloring. In my bridal photos it is kind of hard to see all the details, so take a good look at these stock photos to appreciate the beauty of this gown! My seamstress did a wonderful job at seamlessly making this dress modest.

Lillian West is known for their boho-chic designs and I haven’t seen one of their dresses I didn’t like. There is only one place in Utah to get a Lillian West dress, and that is The Runway Bride. They have dresses at amazing prices, and sooooo unique. If you are looking for a stand out wedding dress and you are in Utah- they are the best! Their forte is getting unique gowns at amazing deals.  You will be sure to find something amazing and that no one else has. And they have a wonderful seamstress that can make any dress modest (which is what I did!). Tell them Modest Style sent you!
