Mahin a traditional Sofreh Aghed wedding

What a joy to meet Mahin. She and Tony were married February 14th at the Island Hotel in Newport Beach. Duke photography captured the day….check out his work….creative! Mahin and Tony chose to marry in a Iranian Traditional ceremony….Sofreh Aghed. Now from what I understand this Sofreh Aghed is part of everything…it is the traditions from the food to the decore. There are specialists who incorporate the old world traditions into each brides new world tastes. So interesting. This is the best part of living in the United States. Each of us being the same, although each bringing a different world of culture and traditions. LOVE IT.

Let’s enjoy some of Tony and Mahin’s day.



Lauren, Mahin’s Design Visage artist did a smoky eye…color all over the lid and a full eye liner. Mahin has big dark eyes, perfect for this make-up style. But as you will see, sill quite natural. They decided to do a half up hairstyle, with a sleek look. The finishing touch…a beautiful flower.

Lauren returned to Mahin for a second hairstyle. What a stunning couple!

Thanks Mahin for bringing Design Visage into your day……

If you wished to be loved, love.

The Stunning Stacy

September 7th, 2008 Stacy was married at the Island Hotel in Newport Beach. What a beautiful girl.


The stunning photographs were taken by Vanessa Preziose Photography

Lauren, Stacy’s artist helped her with a classic look. A light smoky eye with natural lips and her lovely blond hair pulled off her face….you can see what a good choice it was.

Stacy has become a part of the Design Visage family, she comes in to see Lauren for hair services. 



What counts in making a happy marriage is not so much how compatible you are, but how you deal with incompatibility.
