When photographer Jacque Lynn and I met early last year, we had one motivation for our Utah Bride & Groom cover story: to showcase a look that engaged couples in Utah have yet to see.
We researched the latest fashion coming out of Europe and New York. We scouted indoor and outdoor locations. We slated our dream team of wedding vendors.
What ultimately tugged on our heart strings—and we hope it does the same for you—was designer Carolina Herrera’s quintessential refined style that fuses architectural and sculptural elements, and reveals timeless fashion.
To put a Utah spin on Herrera’s metropolitan philosophy, we paired gowns with soft and sophisticated hair by Steven Robertson, trend-setting makeup by Kristin Packard, simple posies from Urban Chateau and Soil & Stem, luxury gems from O. C. Tanner Jewelers and affordable baubles from Katie Waltman.
While deciding on this year’s cover, our editorial team honed in on what the 2018 Utah bride is. She’s fun and flirty. She craves luxe details as much as she does a sun-soaked mountain hike.
Drumroll, please. Announcing the 2018 issue.
