Wedding Wednesday: Love is Bold with a heart of Gold

No beauty shines brighter than that of a pure set of hearts, which are joined by two people that truly love one another. As you can see, our bride was absolutely GLOW-ing with love on her special day! We had so much fun styling our beautiful bride to-be and her bridesmaids with an elegant soft glam look complimented by a bold lip color. Her romantic side up-do created a stunning classic, yet elegant look! To complete the bridal look she wore the most beautiful lace corset wedding dress that fit her style perfectly. The love and beauty captured during their wedding day absolutely blew us away. So hold on tight and enjoy!

Wedding Wednesday: Kaity's Bridal Glow in Cabo

Belles as Brides

"Remember why you are getting married. At the end of the day, you have your spouse. The time will pass and people will never remember the small details BUT they will remember the love they saw that day!"

 #HowHeAsked

Blake had one mission.... make it be a surprise! If you know me, then you know I can crack any surprise just by looking at someone. I was sick, so you could say I was a little off my game. We had planned on going to visit my family in Bend, Oregon for Easter. It was a cold rainy Easter Sunday, and we had just finished our Easter egg hunts and brunch at Brasada Ranch. With a beautiful view on a hill, he asked to take a picture with me. As I turned around he was down on one knee, rosy nose and all. I cried, he laughed and not many words other than "YES" were said after that! We gathered with our family who were ALL in on it the whole time!

What was your wedding style? The dress, the glam, the location?

Cabo San Lucas ba-by!!! We wanted a simple, easy and p-a-r-t-y! We couldn’t imagine our day any other way, but to be intimate and small with about 55 of our closest loved ones. My dress was very beachy and Spanish influenced, from BHLDN. The location was anything short of a dream. The perfect sand, ocean and a sky almost as good looking as my Husband!

What inspired you when you were planning your big day?

Truthfully, I started on Pinterest like any Bride does dreaming of her wedding. But after many disappointing "sticker shock" moments I decided to just use my hopeless romantic brain and dream about the perfect wedding for US! Plus, the colors rose gold/copper had a lot to do with it.

What was it like to be a Vanity Belle stylist as a bride?

I LOVE seeing and hearing how creative Brides are! It is so great to bounce off ideas with other women and see their dream and vision come to life. I also love sharing little tips that I learned prepping for the big day!

What was your favorite (or most surreal) moment of the day?

I had so many amazing moments on our wedding day! But, my most favorite one of all was one that I didn’t even expect.  While everyone was eating, we also took a moment to eat, or should I say shovel in our food (Brides, am I right?) I remember looking over at Blake, who was now my Husband (what!!!) and looking out at our Guests. Each person, all from different families, parts of our lives, and even friends who had never even met. However, in that moment, together, everyone was getting along and shared love for each-other. They had one thing in common, us! This moment was everything. We both took it in, feeling extremely loved and blessed. All of our favorite people in one place, all for us!

Did you cry?

Oh my goodness, did I ever stop? But can we talk about him! Ha-ha-ha P.S shout out to my girl Natalie, that full face of make up was A WARRIOR through those tears!

What song did you have for your first dance?

"Better Today" by Coffey Anderson

Where did you honeymoon?

We continued our destination wedding in Cabo for another week after our wedding! #Familymoon!

What advice do you have for other brides?

Remember why you are getting married. At the end of the day, you have your spouse. The time will pass and people will never remember the small details BUT they will remember the love they saw that day!

How did being a bride impact your job as a bridal stylist? 

I am more compassionate and understanding! I now understand all the decisions that have to be made that can add to tons of stress. I am a great ear for listening and professional problem solver!
