We love our local bridal designers, and it's no secret we've been crushing on Chantel Lauren for some time now. From gracing our pages to landing our cover, we're always excited to shine a well-deserved spotlight on her handmade wedding gowns and the amazing talent that resides in our beloved Beehive State.

In her newest collection of modern-boho wedding gowns, Chantel showcases not only her custom-design skills, but also her love for music and women who rock—when she's not sewing, you can find her strumming a guitar and DJ-ing at local radio station 101.5 The Eagle. It's no surprise, then, that iconic songbirds such as Stevie Nicks and Janis Joplin influenced the free-spirited style of her "Stevie" and "Janis" gowns, tiered compilations of lace, crinkle chiffon, and flutter and bell sleeves.

Kick off your boots, play your favorite folk-rock record, and check out Chantel Lauren's 2016 bridal collection below.
