Platinum Weddings by Kerrie/Ritz Carlton Dana Point/ Wedding Hair and Make-up

When Sarv called, I new immediately that Design Visage would have to be on the game.  She was a no muss no fuss kind of girl and knew exactly want she wanted, although was looking for just the right stylist to help her achieve her “look”.  Sarv arrived for her preview, computer in hand and power point presentation ready for Lauren. A few hours later Lauren and Sarv were good friends and most importantly Sarv looked stunning.

Sarv chose a classic wedding hairstyle. A swoop bang with very clean smooth updo. Since she is a classic beauty, I do believe she made the right choice.  Sarv’s dress and earring were so sparkly, she decided to add the bling to the back of the hairstyle.

Kerrie from Platinum Weddings by Kerrie definitely did just that, a “Platinum Wedding it was” .  The Ritz Carlton Dana Point was the setting.

For Sarv’s wedding makeup,  Design Visage Lauren did a classic eye, a warm contour pink highlights and lots of lashes.

Yes I believe stunning is the word to describe Sarv on her wedding day.

I love this part of a Persian Wedding, the honey exchange. From what I understand it is a symbol of starting your new life sweet. Let me know if I am wrong, or if there is more to it.

Design Visage is honored to have helped Sarv and all the bridesmaids look like this…….. and the wedding was featured on:

Hair Illusion

We love hair extensions. They can make your hair fuller, longer, a different color, all in one hour. Didn’t you used to wonder how the stars could have short hair one day and the next long. Well welcome to the world of hair extensions. For weddings they serve many purposes. For instance Laura. Laura is an attorney and has a very cute short professional hair style….take a look:

For the wedding Laura wanted to do something different for her bridal hairstyle. So with a little bit of hair, a new Laura. Although not so different that everyone will notice:


So now let’s take a look at the wedding…..It was a beautiful day at the Ritz Carlton in Dana Point. A perfect day for a small, intimate gathering to celebrate a wonderful couple.




Wow did you see the back of that dress…..Laura have a beautiful back and she chose the right dress to show it off.


To top it off, Laura adorned the look with a stunning Lariat necklace.



Heather,  Laura’s Design Visage artist helped her choose just the right hair jewels. A pearl and Swarovski crystal design by MMM that she purchased from our Bridalmode accessory selection.



Thank you Katie from KCP Studios for the lovely photography.

And thank you Laura for being a Design Visage elegant bride.

I came across a few photos of past brides. Let’s take a look at their bridal hairstyles, wedding make-up and hair accessories. Each one different, each one unique, each one fantastic in her own way.




this photo was taken at the stunning Rancho Las Lomas


I really like the creativity of this photo….just a wall with lights from a car create this terrific affect.


What a wonderful all down hair bridal hairstyle. With one day hair extensions you can create any look.


Simple bridal make-up can be the right look for you.


A beautiful silk flower in the wedding hairstyle can be so romantic. You can fin this piece on Design Visage’s accessory site Bridalmode.

Beautiful Brides

Today this is a collage of a few of our brides weddings from 08. Each one special in their own way. We appreciate each and every bride that has allowed Design Visage to help them be beautiful on a glorious day. These beautiful Southern California Weddings.

You will see the half up half down hairstyle has been very popular….more than the bridal up-do. Thank you to my friends Joe and Mirta, Barnet Photography and Jim Kennedy, Jim Kennedy photography.

Morning after pictures….really..

This was the first time I had ever heard about morning after pictures…..yes after the big day and night, photographer returns in the morning to your hotel room….sans make-up and takes photos. Sounds horrible. But look at these photos…..I LOVE IT. Bravo to Jacob Galleries for the idea. Maybe not for everyone, although for these two, an amazing beautiful story.

Sarah and Daniel were married at the Montage Resort last year. Sarah’s family were due to fly in from the east coast for the festivities. Then a huge storm and all flights were canceled. What to do…..can you imagine the decision….go on with the wedding without your family…postpone the wedding…just a day prior. Well with some long phone conversations Sarah’s family gave her their blessing and she did walk down the isle and marry Daniel. They are such a beautiful couple and we wish them a lifetime of happy days and warm moments.
