Brides in print….Ceremony Magazine

Just by her smile you can see that Katelyn is special. A very humble beautiful girl. Katelyn and Jason were married at the stunning Montage Resort in Laguna Beach. She and Jason met a USC dental school…explains the beautiful teeth….The chose some of the best in the wedding industry to create their day….including Kathy Jo Peterson for coordination, Jim Kennedy for the fantastic photos, Elysium Productions for the video and of course Design Visage for the beautiful hairstyles and faces. The wedding was featured in the 2009 Ceremony Magazine. Let’s see why…….

Katelyn chose a loose non structured updo for her bridal hairstyle and bridal make-up was in the soft pink and brown tones with a bold lip. She has the most beautiful skin, all around just a lovely girl. And just look at her skin…it looks airbrushed, but its just her. Can’t buy that…just born with it!

I am sure Katelyn was a joy for the photographer Jim, with all this personality. Makes it more fun to create.

 This is a page of the article in Ceremony magazine about the wedding…you can see the entire article in our press section.

A beautiful Monday..Kari and Cory

Monday May 11th Kari and Cory were married. Heather and Lauren the Design Visage artists make-up all the girls. You might remember a few months ago when Kari came to the preview, and she and Heather came up with the glamerous side loose hairstyle. This has been very popular this year, and I love it! Kari has light features (like me) so the make-up adds so much to her look.

This is the note we just received from Kari: Dear Design Visage, Wanted to let you know that I was thrilled with Heather/Lauren on my wedding day…they did such a great job!!!! I loved my hair and make-up and everyone else was pleased as well. I would be glad to recommend your team to anyone who is getting married.

WOW thanks Kari….we love to hear this…..

Kari and Cory…how cute is that…were married at the Casa del Camino in Laguna Beach and the photographs are curtesy of Greg Thompson.

You come to love not by finding the perfect person, but by seeing an imperfect person perfectly.

Carlo and Anna

Interesting how I met Carlo. A few years ago I went to Kenny the Printer to have a project printed. They were so rude to me that I left immediately. I walked out the door and thought what now, I need this asap. I looked across the street and saw Avanti Printing. I walked in the door and there was Carlo. So sweet, professional, and accommodating. This started a nice business relationship. Last year when Carlo told me he was going to propose to Anna (had not met her yet) I was thrilled. And even more honored when he asked Design Visage to make his Anna look beautiful on their wedding day. So here is how the story went. Now remember this is according to Carlo, so Anna if you have another version, just make a comment to set the record straight.


Anna was a good friend of Carlo’s twin sisters.  They would always tell him to ask her out. Carlo felt a little funny since Anna was such a good friend of his sisters. Carlo’s whole family knew Anna and suggested he pursue her. A couple years ago Anna came to Carlo’s birthday party. Carlo’s step-mom told him that Anna was following him around the room with her eyes. So he tested it…and it was true!














                                                                                                                                                                                      After some time passed, he saw her with his sisters, Carlo realized that Anna was an amazing girl and possessed all the qualities that he was looking for in a life partner and wife. They could not resist their destiny, started dating, and were married 1 year later.

Have you ever met a couple that you just knew would be together forever. That is how I feel about Carlo and Anna. When Anna came to Design Visage for her hair and make-up preview, it was apparent what Carlo saw in her. Anna is one of the most beautiful girls you will ever meet. Although I am not just talking about the physical appearance. Anna has a beautiful soul that she carries on the outside. Carlo and Anna have a true faith that will be a strong part of their life together.

 Anna’s make-up was very light, natural browns and soft cheeks and lips. Her hair was a loose low style updo, very feminine.


 I would like to thank their photographer Jacob Bongiovanni for all photos.

Brides in Flowers…Flowers…Flowers

This is quite fun for me to write about. How beautiful is a bride with flowers in her hair. There is something so feminine about flowing curls and flowers. Brides often ask us about fresh flowers as opposed to silk…well as stunning as fresh are…it will be a long day and most flowers will wilt and/or turn brown. If you are dead set on fresh…ask your florist which type of flower is the best, and get a second to replace prior to the reception. The safest and in my opinion the best choice is a stunning silk. There are so many to choose, with shapes, textures, and colors to facinate any brides pallet. This will be a 3 part blog since their are so many things to show you. Lets start with a designs from Michelle Miller Designs and can be found on Bridalmode.








































































Is this enough eye candy for today….Happy Easter and I will be back with more Flowers Flowers Flowers on Monday.
