Kristen a Desert Wedding Day

May 9th was the day for Kristen and Anton. The chose a terrific vintage hotel in Palm Springs….The Parker. Check it out. Miki and Sonja were the photographers for the day….look at the great shots…and Kathy Ricchia made day run smoothly, the wedding coordinator is so important…thank you for that! Let’s take a look.

Michelle, Kristen’s DV artist enjoyed the entire wedding party. All the girls were so fun and pretty. Kristen’s bridal hairstyle was a down style. This is not the easiest wedding hairstyle. You must have a lot of hair, or add hair extensions. Michelle set Kristen’s hair and let it out to form natural very loose curls, just what she wanted. Kristen’s bridal make-up was very natural…just browns and golds with natural rose blush. Her bridal lip color was a natural lip tone pencil with a soft pink lip gloss. A very naturally beautiful bride.

All the girls had different wedding hairstyles. Some wedding updo’s, some wedding down half updo’s. All looked so fresh in the lovely yellow.

A testament to our wedding hair and make-up services…..it was approximently 107 degrees that beautiful dessert wedding day. And look how fantastic all the girls look to the end.

A good marriage is at least 80 percent good luck in finding the right person at the right time. The rest is trust.

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.

Yours, Mine equals Ours

What a nice surprise to hear from Carolyn this week. Carolyn was married 7/07 and Loved how beautiful she felt on the wedding, so she did the best compliment a company can have….she brought her future daughter in law to Design Visage for hair and make-up services for her wedding 7/09. We are so excited to be a part of Alyssa’s wedding. But in the meantime let’s take a look at Carolyn and Neils day.

So the yours, mine equals ours: Neil has 3 children and Carolyn has 2 children…so now we have one big Brady Bunch.

So how did they meet? Carolyn is a nurse and a college set her up with a friend…..Neil. Well this is one blind date that went well. They went to dinner, were so engrossed in the conversation, did not even realize that everyone was gone, the restaurant was closed leaving only the closing crew. I guess it was love at first site.

They were engaged on Friday the 13th. The wedding was at the stunning Montage Resort in Laguna Beach, Sherly Rossell coordinated the day and the photos were shot by Moments by Michelle  . Carolyn loves bling……there were rhinestones on the cake, bouquet, frames, floral arrangements, the invitation, and all down the back of her dress. It was one sparkly day.

Hannah was Carolyn’s DV artist, and you will see how fantastic her eyes look. They applied a bronze contour with a lot of lashes. Look at those eyes.

Carolyn and Neil went to Bora Bora for their Honeymoon. For their one year anniversary they returned to Bora Bora with all 5 kids, this year for the 2nd year anniversary, they are returning to Bora Bora alone.

Thanks Carolyn for reconnecting with us and the incredible compliment of bringing Alyssa to us. We will take very good care of her.

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.
