OMG!!! Gorgeous Leila, oh so handsome Tony, Santa Barbara and drum roll please....... ELIZABETH MESSINA!!!!!! She is my all time favorite! Her work just breaths! I know it's a little over the top to say that but she is incredible!!! She is a celebrity photographer and most recently shot the vow renewal of the fabulous Tori Spelling! Leila is the owner and PR guru of Be Inspired PR and my totally favorite wedding blog Inspired By This. I had the pleasure of working with her on many of her pre-wedding events and her big day!

Gorgeous Jackie gets hitched!

Jackie is one of the sweetest brides! I remember when she came in for her trial run and she was so shy and soft spoken! I of course, talked her ear off and by the end of her trial I felt like we were friends! She has such a huge hand in the design and decor of her big day! I got to see some of the details and she delivered!!!! It was gorgeous!!! I had the pleasure of doing both hair and makeup for Jackie! I also, got to work with the fabulous Gina and Mike from Pix of Life photography! Check out some of my fave images!

Lauren's roof top wedding on 4th of July!

Happy 4th of July!!!! Lauren envisioned a fabulous roof top celebration on her big day! 4th of July was the perfect day!!! I had the pleasure of working with the incredible Bella girls of Bella Weddings, whom I adore and have dolled up in the past! The event went off without a hitch! Lauren wanted to look glam!!! I personally love a vintage look and I got to play with this concept with Lauren's gorgeous hair! For makeup we went timeless and classic. The first time I met Lauren was at her preview with was also a preview for her girlfriend and bridesmaid Monica. I was thrilled to get to know them and hear all about how they knew eachother and their individual big days. Stay tuned for pics from Monica's amazing Santa Monica wedding.

Virgina ties the know at Condor's Nest

I had the pleasure of dolling up Virgina for her big day! Condor's Nest is a super fabulous ranch venue! A real ranch! Every time I visit this venue I'm welcome by the four ENORMOUS dogs, horses and goats!! It's awesome!!! The whole home is opened to the happy couple and their families! It's homey and casual and fantastic! Virgina envisioned feminine and soft hair with super subtle makeup. I thought she looked so fresh and clean! She was stunning!!!
