Elegant Bohemian Wedding Inspiration with Soft Pastel Hues

By | May 19th, 2017|Featured, Featured Press, Photo shoot|

Bohemian bridal inspiration with soft pastel hues

Like the radiantly peaceful aura of nature, this bohemian bridal inspiration evokes elegance and romance, harnessing the luminous light of soft pastel hues. Here’s more from today’s feature on Style Me Pretty

From the Photographer… When I think of planning a wedding personally I like to think of colors that would work with all seasons! When TOAST Santa Barbara and I got together we decided early on that we were striving to show brides an earthy feel with a hint of boho goodness that would be acceptable for any season. The warm earthy tones accented by brass, pinks, purples, and touches of blue bring out any season on an effortless level. Simple organic beauty found within nature is key when it comes to a multi season look if I do say so myself. The shoot took place at a private estate over looking Santa Barbara – it was the perfect escape for the shoot, bringing it full circle, embracing the soft sounds of nature and breeze. And personally, if I could have dinner on this mountain top everyday, I would.

Enjoy traipsing through the beauty…

A Romantic and Fanciful Santa Ynez, CA Wine Country Wedding

By | May 1st, 2017|Featured, Featured Press, Real Wedding|

Flutter Mag Editor's Santa Ynez butterfly wedding

The romance of a Wine Country wedding rarely disappoints. The light always seems to illuminate exactly right, the landscape compels a deeply held and joyfully exhaled breath, and the colors seem grander even in comparison. So when the founder of Flutter Magazine was planning her wedding, she teamed up with industry mavens Joy Proctor, Jose Villa, and Amy Osaba to create and capture this stunning Santa Ynez celebration. One can imagine the beauty that unfolded. Enjoy the scroll, as collected from the full coverage over on Style Me Pretty.

From Event Designer, Joy Proctor, “The color palette reflected Kim’s style through and through, with warm watermelon, coral, and sunset tones paired against taupes and creams as a nod to their engagement in Tuscany. To evoke the playful yet elegant aesthetic that Kim is so known for, we used a beautiful watercolor crest designed by Monvoir, complete with florals and butterflies throughout the suite…As a nod to their Italian engagement, Kim and Tyson wanted to share an al fresco dining experience with their guests. To create an intimate environment we built a beautiful structure draped in taupe fabric over two rows of dining tables. Florals and greenery grew up the structure organically, while Tuscan style chandeliers hung down the center. Linen chairs and wooden tables added to the Tuscan feel, while artisanal breads, olive oil, fruits and flowers created for a lush, edible tabletop.”  How incredibly lovely…

TEAM Styling the Runway at New York Bridal Fashion Week

By | April 24th, 2017|Uncategorized|

Justin Alexander - New York Bridal Fashion Week

TEAM headed off to New York for Bridal Fashion Week, at the runway and behind-the-scenes ready. Styling hair and makeup for inspiring bridal designers Anne Barge and Justin Alexander was the icing on the cake; a definite New York Moment. And to see our work come to life as it mingles with exquisite and spellbinding artistry is one very key reason why we love doing what we do. Check out some of the highlights from both shows. Betting you’ll agree there’s a whole lot of lovely going on…

Justin Alexander latest features clean cut-outs and abstract beading…including crepe, organza jacquard, buttery satin and Mikado create clean gowns, and unique detailing… The design team experimented with soft construction and illusion bodices with fine detailing to balance comfort and striking appeal.

Anne Barge, the vintage-inspired epitome of classic bridal style with a contemporary twist, gives this Spring collection her take on the picture perfect gown. From Vogue, “Here, she expanded her horizons with low-back dresses, some with whisper-light treatments like reembroidered Alençon lace on tulle, that were easy to imagine at a destination wedding in Portofino or St. Barth’s. Barge’s channeling of the ’60s—Françoise Hardy was on the soundtrack, Bardot bands were in the hair—was a win, whether you are team Bouvier or Hepburn.” See for yourself…

Jose Villa Mexico Workshop / Inspired Wedding Photography

By | March 15th, 2017|Photo shoot|

Jose Villa Mexico Workshop 2016 - Wedding Photography inspiration

This,a utopian backdrop rooted in old world nostalgia. Hacienda el Carmen, located in Ahualulco de Mercado, Mexico… a region of valleys, surrounded by a cane plantation of agave, a stunning panoramic view to the volcanoes of Tequila and Ameca. Idyllic comes to mind… a place to relax, coexist with nature and rest from everyday life. And this, the location of Jose Villa’s most inspiring photography workshops. TEAM celebrated with Jose Villa Workshops at its 10 year anniversary in November (Mar has had the honor of styling hair and makeup for each of these workshops over the course of the past decade).

Now, from his own lens (and appearing in the upcoming issue of Geraldine)…have a look at how beautifully José has been inspiring a new generation of film wedding photographers from around the world…

A Couple’s Romantic Getaway Turned Wedding Destination in Santa Barbara, California

By | March 6th, 2017|Featured, Real Wedding, Uncategorized|

El Encanto Santa Barbara wedding / Style Me Pretty

Santa Barbara, California has long been a destination hotspot for all things weddings. We should know… TEAM is headquartered here; having styled a myriad of bridal parties in this magical town nestled between the sunglint ocean and the majestic mountains. So we get that Heather + Peter, with a history of traveling to this neck of the woods for getaways, chose to also make it part of their wedding day story.

From the photographer, as featured on Style Me Pretty…

It didn’t take long after Heather and Peter met to fall in love… They knew they wanted to get married in Santa Barbara (one of their favorite getaway spots) which would also be a wonderful holiday destination for their families traveling from New York and the Mid-West in the late fall. They had originally thought about a vineyard wedding but the moment they walked into El Encanto, they knew it was the place for them. It was the perfect balance of romance and elegance that they wanted for their wedding day.
