Welcome back to week 4 in my local business features! A little recap if you are just joining us. I decided to use my photography and blog to help showcase some small businesses here in Southwest Iowa. I want to bring a little more exposure to what we have to offer in our rural area. There are so many wonderful shops and services right around here!
This week I would feature one of the only wedding and prom dress shops in Southwest Iowa. This is THE time of year to shop for both events so I couldn't think of a better place to show off right now.
Yulia Hilton owns Hilton Wedding Boutique in Clarinda, Iowa. I met Yulia when I was working on a styled wedding shoot back in November. She brought two gorgeous dresses from her shop to share and be featured. She is such a lovely lady with a wonderful energy about her! We had a great time together that day. We have also made plans for me to come back and do another shoot like that in April. So look for that this spring!
I had never been over to her shop before so I couldn't wait to see! The amount of dresses in her cozy shop just amazed me. There was so much grace and elegance in one place from some very popular designers. I have been out of the wedding dress loop for quite a while... 20 years to be exact lol! So to see all of the new designs was really eye opening. I was amazed by all the intricate details, unique floral appliques and extravegant trains. I felt like I was a bride's dream land!
Yulia prides herself in quality over quantity. While she does have numerous dresses to choose from it's not overwhelming like the giant chain store dress shops can be. The one on one treatment you get from Yulia is also something you won't find in those stores either. Each bride gets her own personal appointment in her shop. Yulia is an expert at fitting and helping you choose the exact dress to flatter you and to help make your day perfect!
I normally do a full interview and story with each feature but this week it will be a little short on words. Like I said, this is a very busy time of year for Yulia so I will just let my pictures do most of the talking :) Enjoy the pictures of all the lovelies she has to offer!
Links to all the designs are included at the end as well as all of Yulia's contact information.
After 25 years in the IT field, Yulia Hilton’s new business, Hilton Wedding Boutique, is a fabulous new shopping experience for the bride-to-be, which really does bring city style and luxury to South West Iowa.
It's very evident right when you walk through the doors that this isn't your ordinary boutique. Yulia brings her knowledge of European design and elegence straight to Southwest Iowa.
