Hillary and Ty’s Idaho mountain wedding was the perfect celebration of their new life together. The bride’s natural beauty-meets-elegance vision created a laid-back mountain escape vibe thanks to their wonderful wedding vendors.
When it came time to find a dress for her Idaho mountain wedding, Hillary hit the jackpot with a dream experience. The moment she set foot in The Bridal Collection, she was warmly greeted by her stylist. After discussing her ideal dress style, budget, and wedding vision, they browsed the showroom choosing different gowns to try on. In the end, her stylist Carrie pulled one specific dress — style 7274 from the L’amour by Calla Blanche collection — and it was the most beautiful dress Hillary had ever seen. It was everything she hoped for and more!
Once she said “Yes” to the dress, she added the Tahini veil by Toni Federici! She wore her veil with a stunning floral crown adding a soft, romantic touch to her bridal style. A pair of TBC Exclusives earrings completed her wedding day look with a touch of sparkle.
As Hillary waited in her bridal suite for the ceremony to begin, her heart pounded with excitement. She was about to marry her best friend! She looked down at her bouquet where her mom had placed lockets which held photos of her dad, who had passed away earlier in the year. Having a little piece of him with her on such a special day made Hillary feel like he was there watching over them, and everything was exactly how it was supposed to be.
The First Look
A wedding day moment that Hillary will never forget is when the doors opened for her to walk down the aisle. The look on her groom’s face was nothing less than magical. As tears welled up in his eyes, his face shifted to the biggest smile Hillary has ever seen. Once Hillary reached the altar, the officiant (Ty’s cousin!) asked the couple to pause for a moment and look around at all of their loved ones in the room. Soaking in the fact that everyone they loved was in one room, for the sole purpose of loving them and supporting their marriage, was unlike anything Hillary has ever felt.
Advice for Future Brides
“The only advice I would give to other brides is to truly be present and enjoy every moment. It goes so quickly!! As far as dress shopping, stick to your gut, don’t settle, be patient and you’ll find the perfect dress!
I went to The Bridal Collection with only one friend and she did not sway me in any way, it helped me to really trust myself and choose the dress I wanted! I couldn’t be happier with how everything turned out.
Thank you to all of the ladies at The Bridal Collection, especially to my initial consultant Carrie, to Sydney, and to my alterations lady. You made my experience really special and I’m forever grateful!” – Hillary
