|Sara Archibald Sandberg is the creator of Illume. After being asked to design several wedding gowns for friends and acquaintances, she recognized the glaring need for modern and stylish wedding dresses that still maintain a high level of quality and modesty. Upon completion of these first dresses, the response spoke volumes to her ability and creative eye. This is what ultimately led her to start Illume.
Illume is a reflection of Sara's passion for creating modest and contemporary design. She has a keen sensibility for balancing modesty and a youthful edge. She favors sleek silhouettes, clean lines, figure-flattering proportions and high-quality fabrics.
After years of working in bridal sales and designing for private clients, Sara has been able to cultivate her own design philosophy with a unique approach that brings the customer's needs to the forefront of her creative process.
Sara believes that you don't have to compromise modesty to dress stylish - especially on your wedding day. She is thrilled to present her fourth ready-to-wear bridal collection that represents this belief!
