St Regis Wedding Open House and Bridal Fashion Show

We are often asked to style fashion shows and photo shoots with amazing hair and makeup. The Design Visage artists use these occasions to go outside the box with over the top styles and accessories used in extraordinary ways.

 In the early spring The St Regis Monarch Beach invited us to be part of their open house and bridal fashion show featuring dresses by the famous Renee Strauss. You may have seen her hit show Brides of Beverly Hills on TLC.

Jim Kennedy Photographers captured so many wonderful images from the day! Gorgeous runway shots to up-close portraits that really highlight the fabulous looks the Design Visage artists created.

Bridal Beauty Product Spotlight – Sugarpill Pressed Eyeshadow

We are often asked about the products we use and although all Design Visage artists consistently use the same airbrush foundation, they each have  favorite products that bring their creative artistry to life. 

Taking a break from the usual wedding day photos to bring you bridal beauty product love from DV Jen.

 

Sugarpill Pressed Eyeshadow – Tako

What it is:

Luxury pressed eyeshadow. Richly pigmented & velvety smooth.

A great eyeshadow to add that dramatic white highlighting with a heavy smokey eye. For best results apply to the inner corner and brow bone.

Team Building – The Design Visage Way

Team building is important for any company, it builds motivation, trust and rapport. Most large corporations have team building activities that involve working together to achieve a task or competitive activities to ignite motivation and passion. All designed to build the companies bottom line.

At Design Visage we take Team Building a little differently. Although we work together throughout the year, our focus is always on our bride and the bridal party. We have to make it a point to come together as a group to stay connected and get that personal time that can not be achieved via weddings on the weekend or Facebook.

We choose different activities for different reasons. 

White water rafting – To build trust and teamwork. Definitely a crazy day, no one wanted to end up in the water so you have to take care of each other to stay in the boat.

Sometimes our team building includes work. Here we all got together to make a VIP group of coordinators beautiful in LA. Our artists are always there when we need them.

The team can not always get together at the same time.

Individually we can bond as well. Here we participated in a yoga rave.

The adventures of the Design Visage Divas included this fun outing to hot air balloon in Del Mar! Never made it off the ground but that’s a whole other story.

Our artists give their time throughout the year.

This year we gave our time to Wish Upon a Wedding and celebrated at the annual Gala.

We generally close the busy wedding season with a gathering in December to reflect

and look forward to a prosperous New Year. A gondola ride to see the holiday lights.

Can’t say it is all work and no play with a break in the photo booth!

And again although the ladies were meeting new brides at the Love Tour they are able to spend valuable time together.

 

The next adventure for the Design Visage Divas…a cruise. That’s right, we are heading out for fun in the sun. We will play, relax, laugh and maybe even cry. Tears of joy and graditude for the amazing women we work with everyday. 

For us, team building is our way of staying connected and understanding who our artists are. We want to keep them inspired and motivated to always do an amazing job.

I feel our efforts are reflected in the work they do and the phenomenal reviews we get from our brides. A Design Visage artist is a woman of integrity, professionalism, artistry and compassion.
