Wedding Wednesday : Vows of Love on the Green

Who is ready to celebrate love and par-tee? Well prepare yourself because you will!  Especially, once you start looking at these incredible wedding day nuptials! This gorgeous outdoor wedding took place in the historic beachy town of San Clemente, CA on a perfect afternoon.  You are going to love the simplistic yet elegant gardenesque decor. Soft pink blush colors accented the white wedding by using a soft glam makeup palette and strapless bridesmaids gowns. You can feel the love and emotions that surrounded the bride and groom on their special day. The intimate moments shared and captured during the "first look(s)" are breath taking. This wedding certainly spared no details and with a love like theirs, we are confident they will remain husband and wife fore-ever!

Wedding Wednesday: Unveil Your Inner Sexy Side

Nothing is more sexy than confidence! If scheduling a Boudoir photo session has been on your mind, then stop thinking about it.  Life is to short, do the photo-shoot! Whether you are a Bride-to-be or not, do it for yourself. Because sometimes the best moments in your life are the ones you can't tell anyone about. Show them instead, and let their imagination tell the story.  

When you are ready to unveil your inner sexy, make sure to start by booking your dream team. Glam Team + Photographer = Sexy Success. Even the best hair and makeup professionals need help to pull off the perfect boudoir, and that's why we use Chloe, boudoir camera master. The proof is in the pictures and we hope you enjoy!

This time, one of our very own OC Belle's, Joanna, got behind the camera. She's getting married this month, and is surprising her hub-to-be (shhh!!!) with the BEST gift EVER. Naturally, being a hair stylist, she had the luxury of being able to style her own hair and with the help of our fabulous makeup artist, Diane, she was camera ready! 

Loving yourself isn’t Vanity it is Sanity. -Andre Gide

"I was nervous at first, but Chloe made me feel very, very comfortable. It was an amazing experience and I just kept thinking my fiance is going to LOVE this!"  -Joanna

It's important to have fun, be playful and relax during your photo session. The more natural and calm you feel, the easier it will be to let your sexy side reveal itself.  So let your hair down, roll around and even laugh a little.

Bring lots of outfits to create variety with your images. When preparing for your photo shoot, make sure to spend time trying on and testing outfits, says HUFFPOST in their article '10 Tips To Prepare You For Your Boudoir Session.'

Not only is it important to find outfits that make you feel sexy, but that your style also compliments your beautiful features. We love how this blue lace bra makes her blue eyes POP!

Because sometimes noting looks sexier than a woman wearing only a mens dress shirt.... I'd say Joanna's inner sexy has officially been unveiled!
