Wedding Wednesday: Winter Romance

Our hearts are simply melting over the images from this romantic winter wedding, and we hope that yours will too!

Surrounded by their dearest loved ones, these two created unforgettable memories throughout their beautiful nuptials. Blush pink, bright florals and classic elegance set the mood for their unique wedding day. They started a journey together built on a foundation of love, traditions and unity that will last them a lifetime! xo

We love how the bride uses a soft neutral palette to create her romantic bridal look. A perfect style to compliment her curled and braided half updo.

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!

Wedding Hair & Makeup Trends Looking to Turn Heads this Fall 2017

The wedding day is here, and as the Bride, all eyes on are you. Everyone has been anticipating that moment when the gorgeous bride makes her way down the aisle. From the dress to the shoes to the most important, hair and makeup! Every Bride wants to look her best so we compiled a list from the experts. According to Cosmopolitan, POPSUGAR, and our talented artists, here are five of the hottest trends for Fall 2017 to help our Brides achieve their perfect Bridal Look.

Brides are going Bronzy. Our artists are using more natural, monochromatic toned makeup in many Bridal looks. The deep rich tones above really compliment the Brides soft features. We loves how she ties in the entire look with a unique gold statement hairpiece.

The high ballerina bun is a an elegant and classic bridal look. Incorporating an ornate hair piece or even a headband gives it an even more unique look.

Flower Crowns were a popular trend this Spring and Summer and guess what? They are here to stay as they continue into a trend for this Fall.

Looking for a style that truly POPs!? Then, go for a gorgeous lip color to contrast all that white. Nothing looks more stunning than a Bride with bright lips complimented by peachy blush cheeks under a weding veil.

Match an earthy toned palette for your smokey eyes with a highlighter cream to your cheek bones and it will truly give you that "wedding glow."
