GIVE ME A BEACH, THE FRESH OCEAN BREEZE AND THE LOVE OF MY LIFE. A PERFECT WAY OUR BRIDE JESSICA JOLLY WANTED TO SAY HER “I DO’S” TO HER FOREVER MATT.
JESSICA AND MATT ARE THE PERFECT PAIR; YOU CAN SEE THE LOVE THAT THEY HAVE FOR EACH OTHER IN JUST THE WAY THEY SMILE. THEIR LOVE FOR LIFE, AND FOR EACH OTHER WILL MOUND TO GREATNESS. THEY ARE THE BEST OF FRIENDS AND ENJOY SPENDING EVERY MOMENT WITH EACH OTHER WHETHER IT IS IN THEIR HOME TOWN OR TRAVELING TO ANYWHERE THEY CAN CATCH THE SUN.
WE WERE THRILLED TO MEET JESSICA WHEN SHE CAME TO VISIT US IN SALT LAKE CITY. WE QUICKLY COULD TELL SHE WAS ONE OF THE KINDEST, SWEETEST AND MOST NATURALLY BEAUTIFUL GIRLS WE’D MET. SHE SHARED THAT MATT AND HER WERE GETTING MARRIED THIS WINTER ON THE BEACH IN HAWAII. IN HER DREAM OF A WEDDING GOWN SHE WANTED A GOWN THAT WAS SIMPLE, UNIQUE AND BEAUTIFUL. SHE TRIED ON ALL OF OUR GOWNS AND ANY ONE OF THEM WOULD HAVE BEEN PERFECT FOR A BEACH WEDDING. WHEN SHE TRIED ON CARLY SHE INSTANTLY KNEW THAT CARLY WAS HER DREAM WEDDING GOWN! CARLY WITH HER BOLD DETAILED LACE, BLUSH SILK BODICE AND SOFT CHIFFON SKIRT WERE SURE TO BE A PARADISE DREAM. WE LOVE JESSICA AND WE LOVE THAT SHE CHOSE US; SHE WILL FOREVER BE ONE OF OUR CHANTEL LAUREN BRIDES.
CONGRATULATIONS JESSICA + MATT!!!
Free spirited, unique and energetic are the words that come to mind when I think of our Chantel Lauren Bride Kaila! She creates beauty wherever she goes! As a designer herself, she was one of the firsts of our brides to come up with a personalization of her own gown. She loved the sexy vibes of Patricia and the fun, energetic uniqueness of Mae. Together she made them into a stunning masterpiece.
What I loved most about Kaila is her love for life; she always has the most beautiful smile on her face and makes everyone feel loved and happy. We beyond thrilled that she will forever be a Chantel Lauren bride to us.
Shelby Hickenlooper photographed Kaila and Stu’s engagements and wedding day, what she had to say about Kaila is spot on! “ Kaila has such a contagious, original, and fun attitude and personality! She was so fun to work with because of how creative she is. Her wedding was unlike any other wedding we’ve ever photographed because it was so personal to her and Stu. She wasn’t afraid to express herself, hence, the gorgeous Chantel Lauren gown she chose. It was absolutely perfect for her!”
Camping + Hiking + "I Do"
Chelsea and Bridger had a destination wedding in Moab, UT. Her soft tones surround by the vibrant Red Rocks created the perfect backdrop for this intimate ceremony.

We were so excited to be apart of our very first Proposal. It was Freezing but totally worth it. The morning started off crazy trying to find the perfect location after our 1st choice failed. Once we found a spot up Big Cottonwood Canyon, we were stopped by the Police for having Stevie Nicks (my Dog) in the Car..oops! So Tyler had to run the pup home and got back just in time for the Big Moment!
Words from the Groom-to-be:
Melanie and I met 8 months ago through my brother and sister in law. It didn’t take long for me to realize she was completely different than any girl I had previously dated and I fell hard and fast. She lives about an hour and a half away, but that doesn’t stop us from seeing each other multiple times a week. When it came to asking Melanie I knew I wanted it to be a complete surprise. I started by secretly asking her parents for their daughters hand in marriage after driving almost 3hrs in a blizzard over dinner where they happily gave me their blessing.
I asked Melanie to Model for an upcoming Nordic Photoshoot. She was so excited - I asked her to see if Matt, her boyfriend, would also like to participate. We reached out to some of our favorite vendors Kenzie Dawn Photography, Kali Chris Hair & Makeup, Ian Saunders Film, The Golden Petal Florals to help with the shoot. At the shoot everything was normal like any Styled Shoot until Matt dropped to one knee and asked Melanie to marry him...She Said Yes!
