Welcome to the new look of the LDS Bride Blog! We hope you like it...it has been a long time coming and we feel it really reflects the beauty and style we cherish her at LDS BB. We couldn't be more excited for our inaugural post here today. This featured fall wedding has it all: Gorgeous bride and groom, adorable love story, Salt Lake Temple ceremony (because who doesn't love the SL Temple?), and an amazing reception at the never-a-disappointment Wadley Farms. Carli and Glenn redefine the hashtag #couplesgoals, as their adorable personalities totally shine through in their wedding photos by Lyndsey Kaye Photography. We think you will agree...this is one for the books.
Their photographer Lyndsey said, "Carli told me that she dreamed about getting married in the Salt Lake Temple since she was a little girl. She is from Canada and never thought it would happen. Then Glenn happened to come to Canada on his mission! They fell in love after he served. Right before Glenn saw Carli, he was making himself breathe, it was the cutest! When they turned around on the pedestal for the first look, Carli kept looking away trying not to cry. Glenn couldn't help himself. The photo of her wiping away his tears was my favorite. Their day was so gorgeous!"
Another fun story that Carli posted on her instagram:
"Glenn and I decided to look through his mission planners to see if we could find the day we first met. After awhile of looking, we found on April 3, 2014 at 8:00, he had an appointment with "Taylor and some girl." A little more than, I could not be happier to have become more than just 'some girl!'"
So are we, Carli, so are we.
Todays featured wedding at the Salt Lake Temple with a gorgeous reception at Rose River Receptions in Blackfoot, Idaho is simply gorgeous.
The Salt Lake Temple never disappoints, no matter the season. However, there is something special about summer weddings there. The green grass. The full trees swaying in the breeze. The flowers at their prime. And that warm summer sunlight and magical sunset you can only get this time of the year. Savana and Logan picked the perfect summer day to tie the knot. Just look at that blue sky!
The couple's reception was held at Rose River Receptions in Blackfoot, Idaho the next evening. We kind of love this trend of breaking the wedding into two days...I remember how exhausted I was after my wedding day and I just look so dead tired in all of my reception photos. Savana and Logan look refreshed and ready to party! And party they did. Can we talk about those gorgeous bridesmaid dresses too? And how adorable are their flower girls?!
Thank for for sharing this beautiful wedding with us!

We are a little bit giddy about this real wedding we have on the blog today. Andreanna's totally unique rose modest mermaid wedding dress is simply stunning and we may be a bit obsessed with the photos too.
Let's face it, very few women fit the "Barbie doll" stereotype! That is why we are so excited to share this post today with 5 plus size wedding dresses that will make you LOVE your curves!
LatterDayBride, a division of Gateway Bridal and Prom in Salt Lake City, UT now boasts the largest selection of plus size bridal gowns available to try on, order, and take home in the state! Their Bridal Curves collection includes a TON of modest wedding dresses available in every size.
But what fun is it to go wedding dress shopping and the store only has "Barbie doll" samples? It's really hard to tell whether you like a dress or not if you can't even try it on. That's why the LatterDayBride Bridal Curves collection has over 100 plus size wedding dress samples up to size 28 for you to try on right in the store. Sweet, right!?
LatterDayBride says "Let's celebrate our Bridal Curves selection, a large section of our store dedicated to our curvy, bold and beautiful brides!" We can't agree more, so here we are to show you just a few of the gorgeous modest wedding dresses they carry for brides of every shape and size!
The 'Cosette' gown is a lovely modest wedding dress features a unique bateau neckline, fully beaded bodice and delicate tulle skirt. This gown available in Champagne/Ivory/Silver, Ivory/Ivory/Silver, White/White/Silver, and White/White, and the sleeve length and neckline can be totally customized!
The 'Langdon' gown is brand new to the LatterDayBride collection this year. The gorgeous fit and flare silhouette flatters any body, and the delicate scalloped lace sleeves and neckline are divine. This gown is available in White, Ivory or Vintage/Ivory!
The 'Baldwin' is a classic satin A-line modest dress featuring a sweetheart neckline, scattered lace appliques and a flattering asymmetrical wrap cinching the waist. This gown is available in Ivory or White. Again, the sleeve length or neckline can be customized! Our real bride Julie is absolutely radiant rocking her Baldwin gown!
The 'Tatum' gown is a classic A-line modest wedding gown featuring a darling waistband, flattering princess seams, sweetheart neckline and a corset back. It is available in Ivory or White and like many dresses at LatterDayBride, the sleeves and neckline can be customized! Another thing to LOVE about this dress? It's under $500. Yep, no excuses not to have a gorgeous wedding dress now, right?
Our real bride Lunden is so stunning, we are so glad she shared her bridal photos with us!

Even though LatterDayBride has the most ready-to-wear modest wedding dresses in the world, sometimes a bride falls in love with a dress at Gateway Bridal that isn't quite modest yet. That's why LatterDayBride LOVES their vendors! One vendor, Casablanca Bridal, is able to customize almost anything to fit each bride individually!
Our real bride Kylie absolutely had to have Casablanca Style 1900, and we were more than happy to work with her to make it perfect! By adding illusion lace sleeves, it became exactly what she envisioned!
We hope this post makes you curvy brides out there so excited to go out and find a plus size wedding dress that you absolutely adore! Let's embrace our curves and find the perfect gown for your big day!
