Avenia Bridal Has Moved!

One of our most favorite wedding gown havens, Avenia Bridal, has moved to a new location in Orem. We here at Utah Valley Bride are so happy for them. LOVE these ladies of Avenia. (Special shout-out to Lisa and Nancy!)

They request the pleasure of your company at the address below, anytime between 10 a.m. and 7 p.m., Monday through Saturday.

Avenia Bridal
228 E. University Parkway, Orem

Pictures of the new digs are to come, but in the meantime, please go visit them. And their dresses. You should definitely visit their dresses. 

FUN FACT: Utah Valley Bride's very own graphic designer, Leah, got her dress at Avenia Bridal. Aren't they pretty?

Leave It Hanging

WE DO ... gown glory photos!

Your chosen frock is pretty much the No. 3 star of your wedding (right behind the newly anointed Mr. and Mrs.). Do it justice by having your photographer snap photos that you'll hang onto — until death do you part, of course.

extra, extra

There just aren't enough glossy pages. 

When we saw cover bride Sarina's '40s-themed engagement session by Nichole V. Photography, we were all kinds of smitten. However, smitten or not, there just wasn't enough room in our 2011 issue to share them with you properly. (Sob!)

But thanks to a little-known thing called the information superhighway, we bring you this extra, extra gush all about it.

So what are you waiting for? Gush, ladies, gush.

P.S. Want more Sarina? Check out her lovely love story here.

Drama Queen

WHAT TO LOVE The veil vision coupled with her powerful profile makes for oh so much more than a pretty picture.

WHAT TO LEARN Every bride needs a little drama — just make it the gorgeous posing kind.
