  • PWer ShellS had a romantic beach wedding in Maui.  


    At her gorgeous outdoor reception, she had large ferns and twigs inside tall etched vases, surrounded by four smaller square vases containing full arrangements of ivory mums, hydrangeas, and roses.  Starfish placed around each table added to the beach theme.  


    Each guests place setting had a linen napkin tied up with an simple sea foam green canvas ribbon, met in the center by elegant place cards in DIY calligraphy script.

  • My Funny Valentine Artist: Chaka Khan Album: Not Provided Description Not Provided Lyrics My funny valentine
    Sweet, comic valentine
    You make me smile with my heart
    Oooh, mmm

    Your looks are laughable
    Un-photographable
    Yet, you're my favorite work of art
    Is your figure less than Greek?
    Is your mouth a little bit weak?
    When you open it to speak, are you smart?

    Don't, baby don't, don't you change your hair for me
    Not if you care for me
    Stay, stay little valentine, stay
    Each day is Valentine's...
    Each day is Valentine's Day

    Stay, little valentine, stay
    Stay, stay, yeah yeah
    Each day is Valentine's...

    About Bel Canto Designs:


    Our passion is hunting down beautiful vintage jewelry with rhinestones and pearls and designing wedding accessories for our wonderful brides. Some of our finds are signed by the designer. These will be clearly identified in the description and generally ensure very high quality workmanship and design. Unsigned pieces may still exhibit the same high quality. Rest assured that all pieces described as "Vintage" are to the best of our knowledge truly from the mid-1900's. We are not experts, but have a good eye for period designs and certainly for classic aesthetic quality and flow. Please use our detailed images and ask questions if you have any concerns.


    Most vintage jewelry will show signs of wear or age which most often adds to its appeal. We at Bel Canto Designs lovingly restore pieces that may have lost or damaged rhinestones while incorporating them in our work. We use the highest-quality hair combs, rhinestones, freshwater pearls and jewelry findings to assemble our pieces and take care to use methods of attachment that will not degrade the appearance of the older pieces.


    Some of the vintage jewelry we find is, in our judgement, best offered in its original form. It is carefully reconditioned to beautiful render the service for which it was originally designed. Original pieces will be described as such.


    In addition to one-of-a-kind vintage pieces, we will occasionally come across some current designs that offer excellent styling and brilliant sparkle. These we will clearly label as "Vintage-inspired" and offer them at prices that reflect our ability to reproduce them for our clients. Often these are no less attractive than the older pieces; in fact some brides prefer the newness, the shine and sparkle and use another item for the "something old" in their trousseau. These pieces also serve well in the creation of coordinated sets for the bridal party.

  • With an abundant local beauty industry, Los Angeles is a great city to be in while on the search for great wedding makeup.  Even so, how is a girl to know who the right artist is for her big day? Or, perhaps you're not sure that hiring an artist is the route to take and you simply want to perfect your own skills.  Here's a nearly foolproof guide to Los Angeles wedding makeup perfection.


     


    Los Angeles Makeup Artists 

    If you've decided that applying flawless foundation is the last thing you want to worry about on your wedding day, choosing a professional Los Angeles makeup artist should be added to your to-do list!  When researching artists, there are a few things to take into consideration.  First, take a thorough look through the artist's wedding makeup portfolio.  If you like what you see, find out what other brides have been saying about the artist's services.  Word of mouth referrals are typically the most reliable and give you a sense of the artist's personality and professionalism.  Read reviews of Los Angeles wedding makeup artists here.


    The experience of Los Angeles wedding makeup artists may vary a great deal, and so will their rates.  Once you've decided on a few options, call to check rates, availability, and to set up a trial appointment.  Before your trial run, collect makeup inspiration from magazines, photos, and even favorite colors from your makeup bag.  At the trial, discuss skincare issues and don't be afraid to express your concerns or dislikes. A successful trial appointment will help to ensure that you've selected the right Los Angeles wedding makeup artist for you.



     


    On a budget, but want a makeup artist?

    If a professional Los Angeles makeup artist is not in the budget, but you dream of being pampered on your wedding day, try contacting one of the many local cosmetology schools to book an artist-in-training at a reduced fee.


     


    A DIY kind of gal?

    Your wedding day is a perfect excuse to replenish your makeup supply and maybe even get a lesson on tricks and tips for doing your own professional looking makeup application. After all, makeup for the "camera" is a bit different then for everyday... and you'll want to be certain your makeup is camera-ready! Listed below are a few highly regarded makeup boutiques in Los Angeles, where you can find quality products and a knowledgeable staff:


    Chroma Makeup Studio


    MudShop L.A.


    Makeup Mandy


    With a large number of talented makeup artists in one city, finding a Los Angeles wedding makeup artist, or at least some well-directed guidance,  should be a snap.  Once you've made your choice, be sure to plan ahead, be prepared, ask questions, and give your artist honest feedback.

  • PWer LuvStruck had a gorgeous purple-on-white 3-tier cake with delicate piping and fresh flowers.  Each layer had a purple ribbon around the base, and the baker hand-piped the beautiful floral design over white butter cream icing.


    The cake was accented with three shades of purple and white roses, and topped with a handmade wooden monogram.  It sat atop a silver cake stand on a table with a purple table cloth, white rose petals, and votive candles.

  • Instead of a trinket that (let's be honest) will most likely get tossed out in a week or two... why not give a unique, unforgettable, and inexpensive favor that will last a lifetime?


    The Arbor Day Foundation has a wonderful favor program that makes this sustainable concept easy and affordable.  Most importantly, the program supports The Arbor Day's mission to inspire people to plant, nurture, and celebrate trees!  Your guests will delight in the lasting memory, and appreciate the thoughtful sentiment.



    The Arbor Day Foundation offers three options of evergreen trees: redwoods, pines, or spruce trees.  Each tree comes packed in a recyclable tube that converts into a birdfeeder after the tree is planted!  Make the favor even more unique by opting for a customized label, featuring a special saying, photograph, or a personal message.



    You can tie the theme into your entire wedding, shower, or rehearsal dinner by incorporating the gift trees into your bouquet, centerpieces, and other decor.  Your floral designer can work with the trees to keep their root systems intact.  Even the trees from your bouquet will be ready for planting after the big day!



    The Arbor Day Foundation is a 501(c)3 nonprofit conservation and education organization. Visit their site for more information on how to make these special trees part of your wedding day!

  • Instead of a trinket that (let's be honest) will most likely get tossed out in a week or two... why not give a unique, unforgettable, and inexpensive favor that will last a lifetime?


    The Arbor Day Foundation has a wonderful favor program that makes this sustainable concept easy and affordable.  Most importantly, the program supports The Arbor Day's mission to inspire people to plant, nurture, and celebrate trees!  Your guests will delight in the lasting memory, and appreciate the thoughtful sentiment.



    The Arbor Day Foundation offers three options of evergreen trees: redwoods, pines, or spruce trees.  Each tree comes packed in a recyclable tube that converts into a birdfeeder after the tree is planted!  Make the favor even more unique by opting for a customized label, featuring a special saying, photograph, or a personal message.



    You can tie the theme into your entire wedding, shower, or rehearsal dinner by incorporating the gift trees into your bouquet, centerpieces, and other decor.  Your floral designer can work with the trees to keep their root systems intact.  Even the trees from your bouquet will be ready for planting after the big day!



    The Arbor Day Foundation is a 501(c)3 nonprofit conservation and education organization. Visit their site for more information on how to make these special trees part of your wedding day!
