Christina & Drew’s Trump National Golf Club Wedding with DNT Elite Events and Lin & Jirsa Photography



The most common request we receive from Brides before the Hair & Makeup Preview, is that they want to look and feel like themselves on their Special Day, only a with touch of glam.  Christina is the perfect example of how to pull off the perfect Bridal Look, without looking “too done up.”  She chose to go with a natural makeup look paired with a soft, curled up-do.  

DV Laura used small barrel curls to texturize the font and sides of Christina’s hair, and weaved them up from the back sides and front to create fullness and volume.  She slightly teased the top of the hair to add height, which gave Christina a nice, full updo.


DV Laura then gave Christina a neutral eye by using light gold, rust and rose gold shadow on the lid, adding a touch of light shimmer to the corners of each eye.  She then used Blackcat Eyeliner for the top lid, and black powder to darken Christina’s waterline.   To highlight her cheeks, Laura used Sephora’s Pink Trio Blush to create a natural “Blushing Bride” look.  Laura used mocha long wear lipliner with a peach toned lipgloss for a light, natural lip color.



A heartfelt thanks to Lin & Jirsa Photography for so beautifully capturing Christina & Drew’s Special Day, as well as to DNT Elite Events for planning another fabulous Wedding Day!

Stunning Indian Wedding at The Four Seasons West Lake with Exquisite Events & Braja Mandala Photography


Beautiful, Bright, and Bold was the theme of this Stunning January Four Seasons Wedding!  Bride, Reema, was a radiant beauty in gorgeous shades of golds, fuschia, and teal.





















DV Dana decided to let the Bride & her gorgeous Bridal attire do the talking by leaning towards soft natural makeup for her Bridal look.  Dana highlighted Reema’s eyes by using  a combination of eyeshadows with a champagne, smokey gold/bronze base and then created depth by blending in burgundy tones.  She finished off  the eye with a touch of black eye liner (top and bottom) and carefully placing individual lashes on for a nice full, natural lash look.

Reema dawned two beautiful hair styles on her Special Day.  First, Dana curled her locks with a 1 1/4″  curling iron, set her hair, and allowed it to cool.  This enables the hair to hold, giving her lasting, full curls throughout the entire day.  Dana then swept her curls off to the side, giving her a romantic first look.  After her ceremony Dana pulled her hair down, and repined it into a more relaxed half up/half down look for her Reception.




A very special Thanks to Exquisite Events for planning this beautiful day and to Braja Mandala Photography for the stunning photos!

Rustic & Romantic Villa San Juan Capistrano Wedding with High Society Wedding & Event Planning and Amanda Patrice Photography


Bride, Kelsey, had a  specific vision for her Wedding Day look, and DV Ella delivered!  Kelsey chose The Villa in San Juan Capistrano for her Wedding Day venue for it’s unique rustic and romantic charm, and wanted an equally unique look for her Bridal hair and makeup.


Ella achieved a defined natural look by lining Kelsey’s eyes lightly with Naked dark brown gel liner on the top and bottom.  She used a vanilla sheen shadow for the lid, then added TIGI deep brown shadow lightly in the crease and corner of the eye.  She then added a touch of gold shimmer under the the eyes and lightly on the lid to add an extra pop, allowing Kelsey’s beautiful blue eyes to stand out.




Ella gave Kelsey a unique French Braid, cascading down beautifully at an angle, tied off at the neckline.  By curling the rest of Kelsey’s hair with loose curls, she gave Kelsey’s unique braid a soft romanic Bridal Look.



Thank you to High Society Wedding & Event Planning for coordinating a beautiful Wedding and to Amanda Patrice for perfectly capturing Kelsey’s Big Day!
