The Hair Make up photo 1The Hair Make up photo 2

All hair & make-up were done by Design Visage. They have two locations - one in Manhattan Beach, and one in Newport Beach. I requested Nicole Thompson (of the Newport Beach location) for my bridal hair & make-up, after seeing work she did for other brides.

Nicole and another lovely gal showed up at our hotel bright and early at 6 on the morning of the wedding. They immediately got to work doing the H+MU of my 3 bridesmaids, as well as my mother. Nicole did my H+MU last, so that it'd coincide with when the photographer arrived.

The total for the bride was $450, which includes a preview/trial and wedding-day hair+makeup. All bridesmaid's & mother's H+MU were $140. Application of individual lashes are available for both the bride & bridesmaids at no extra cost, and extra wedding-day goodies (lipstick, etc.) are provided for the bride for touch-ups later in the day.

(Please take note that Nicole did an excellent job making me look punchy, but natural enough for the wedding day, especially important since I'm not a make-up wearer. And the hair lasted throughout the entire day, and was simply amazing!)

The Bouquet Charm photo 1

In fact, it wasn't a charm at all - it was the promise ring that Andy bought for my birthday a year before he proposed, promising that we'd get married sometime in the future. I had Flower Allie attach it to my bouquet - it was a symbol of a promise fulfilled.

The Garter photo 1

Since Andy is an enormously HUGE baseball fan, and me absolutely loving my SF Giants, I went ahead and purchased a Giants garter set on eBay from seller "kristis_charmed_life."

Shown above is the toss garter that received lots of hoots during the garter toss. Lots of fun.
