Meet Dress Gallery's owner! Jillian became the owner in 2024 after working at Dress Gallery since 2010. She started in bridal in 2007. Jillian has a special love for helping brides one-on-one. You'll usually find her wearing a vintage dress while she fluffs a train or schedules social media posts. She's been married for over 10 years to her husband, Cody, and is the mother to (one of) Dress Gallery’s favorite kiddos, Phoebe.


In addition to being Dress Gallery's owner, Jillian is also a historical fiction author. Her debut novel hits shelves in late 2024.

The Jillian Starter Kit: Her hairless cats Pippin & Pearl, plotting her next novel, a museum membership, a Gunne Sax dress, and a spin bike.

Jillian is available for bridal appointments by special request only.

Allison is Dress Gallery’s Manager of Menswear and bridal consultant. When she started with us full time in August 2020, she had already been in the bridal industry for years. While she still loves working with brides to find their perfect dress, she also found a passion to inspire grooms and anyone who wants to wear a wedding suit to look and feel their best on wedding day! Basically, she can make you and your guys look good. Allison married her best friend, Jeff, in the ultimate wintery wedding in January 2020 (in a Dress Gallery dress, of course!). They became parents to Dress Gallery’s favorite little guy, Hudson, in July 2021. When she’s not styling groups to perfection, Allison enjoys taking her son to Exploration Place, watching true crime documentaries, and bedazzling anything you can think of.

The Allison Starter Kit: Pitbull Pups, Jim Beam, sparkling confetti, a fluffy blanket, and a Chiefs’ jersey.
