We are absolutely blown away by the photographs we received from Sarah and Kip’s gorgeous wedding! Sarah was such an amazing bride to work with and we are thrilled that we could be part of their very special day!
“Mia Grace was more than I dreamed of in a bridal shop! I was looking for a small boutique experience with big taste. I first researched Mia Grace online and then met some of the wonderful consultants at a bridal show. Their personalities, care and concern that I felt at the bridal show I already knew this was going to be where I say Yes to the Dress! Their designer selection is second to none. Also, I am definitely one to take a lot of thought into big purchases and Mia Grace was so patient and appreciative of that. I never felt pushed but they never gave up trying to make me look like a blushing bride! I loved my dress and even more, they referred me to an absolute great seamstress. I've never forget my experience here and definitely recommend them to all brides-to-be!” - Sarah
Their Love Story
It couldn't have worked out more perfectly for these two to meet and fall in love! Kip and Sarah were introduced to each other by a mutual friend in March 2012 and their love grew from there. Kip and Sarah were married on September 17, 2016!
Kip and Sarah are very outdoorsy so their proposal was more than fitting! Kip proposed to Sarah during one of their hikes in Pere Marquette State Park in Grafton, Illinois, with their dog, Henry, alongside. "We stopped for a break. I was playing around with Henry and when I turned around, he was down on one knee!" Sarah reminisced about the proposal.
A Dream Come True
On September 17th, Sarah and Kip tied the knot at the Cathedral of Saint Peter in Belleville, Illinois surrounded by their closest friends and family. Following the ceremony, the newlywed couple continued to celebrate their union at the Regency Room at Panorama Banquet Center. Sarah looked so breathtaking in her wedding dress from Allure Bridals! This stunning fit and flare gown features multi-textured lace throughout the entire dress and a beautiful dramatic train. Sarah and Kip love supporting local when they can, so their wedding theme was about their hometown of Belleville! From the florist to the cake to the photographer to their parish. They are so proud and grateful for what surrounds them and supports them – vendors, family, friends, and community. Their wonderful wedding was created through the hard work from the following vendors:
Florist: Krupp Florist
Caterer: Panorama Banquet Center
Photographer: Arndt Photography
Videographer: Tower Studios
Band/DJ: Night Magic Entertainment
Hairstylist and Makeup Artist: Blowout Bar STL
Cake: 10th Street Baking Co.
Thank you so much Sarah and Kip for allowing all of us at Mia Grace Bridal help make your wedding a dream come true!
