TEAM Spotlight / Primary Hair and Makeup Stylist Chelsea

By | November 22nd, 2017|Spotlight|

TEAM Hair and Makeup stylist Chelsea

In a sea of hair and makeup stylists, few have the talent in both hair and makeup that TEAM’s Primary Stylist Chelsea exudes.  A straight shooter, fun and easy going, she’s also our most frequent traveling artist. Read on to find out what her advice would be for her 13 year old self, the value of loving our adult selves, and what she craves in her down time…

TEAM title: Bridal Hair and Makeup Artist 
 
1. What do you like best about the age you are now? I like that I’ve stopped caring about other people’s opinions about me. In middle and high school my identity was heavily influenced by what other people thought- I feel much more at home in my own skin and confident as I get older. 
TEAM Hair and Makeup stylist Chelsea
2. What advice do you wish you could give your 13 year old self? Nothing that feels like a big deal right now is actually a big deal at all. 
3. What is the most exciting thing about your work industry? I love that beauty is extremely conceptual and variable. I love talking to people, and it’s very cliche for a stylist to say this , however, I love making people feel good about themselves. We’re currently a very sensitive community and constantly comparing ourselves to other people – especially with our cultural addiction to social media – I like making people feel in love with who they already are.

4. Your favorite on-site wedding location is… I love Napa Valley + Santa Barbara for the beautiful, lush landscapes 
5. When you’re not working, you love to do…the most. cook, read, write, travel, call my grandmother & hang out with my love + 2 cats
TEAM Hair and Makeup stylist Chelsea
6. Go-to song/TV show/movie… Song: Bring it on Home to Me – Sam Cooke | TV show: The Pizza Show on Viceland | Movie : Thelma and Louise 
7. If you could work on any wedding anywhere in the world, what would it be? Sicily + the South of France
Thank you so much, Chelsea…We love having you as part of our TEAM! Follow along on our  TEAM Instagram and on Chelsea’s Instagram for more inspiring peeks!

Editors are Gushing Over This Romantic Sunstone Wedding

By | October 26th, 2017|Featured, Featured Press, Real Wedding|

There are a lot of swoon-worthy weddings in the books. We here at TEAM can attest to that. And this Sunstone wedding has topped editor’s favorites for good reason. The floral design, the ambience, the backdrop, the beautiful couple…Gosh, all of it. What a stunner.

From Style Me Pretty, Charmed with old world elegance, masterfully considered design, and the classic romance of stone, hand-hewn beams from Queen Elizabeth’s rose garden, and brooding tones of natural light pouring into every room, Sunstone Winery provides the perfect setting for a timeless wedding. Brett and Sarah’s day was no exception. The ceremony took place under the live oak, surrounded by the property’s vineyard, and followed by the reception in the backgrounds of the estate.

An Artistic California Coast Ranch Wedding

By | September 24th, 2017|Featured, Real Wedding|

artistic california coast ranch wedding

The free spirited, artistic touches from this lovely California coast ranch wedding has our hearts fluttering and inspired. And oh! That veil!

From the Bride…I wanted every last detail of my wedding to evoke emotions from our guests and ultimately myself as well. That was my vision. If I wasn’t moved by something when wedding planning, I’d cut or rework it. I used that as my gut check throughout the process. We got married in wintertime at Rancho Dos Pueblos outside Santa Barbara, California. It was very important to me that the color palette and style fit both the region and the season. We chose stark, ivory whites, bright pops of burnt orange and citrusy corals with dark, moody greens, and we asked our guests to wear their version of winter whites as well. I felt it was essential that our wedding feel cohesive but not over-styled.

Go-to song/TV show/movie…
I don’t have just one song, show, or movie that is my go-to. I love all forms and kinds. One of my favorite things to do is watch YouTube. Here I can watch all my favorite shows, listen to music, and learn all kinds of new things. Youtube Is my go-to because there is a vast array of content and I can access it on my own time.
If you could work on any wedding anywhere in the world, what would it be?
This is such a hard question because there are so many places in the world I would love to visit. If I were to come up with a top 3 (in no particular order) it would be: France, Japan, England. These are 3 countries I haven’t been to that are on my bucket list.
Thanks, Marla!

A Colorful Floral Infused California Wedding

By | August 29th, 2017|Featured, Real Wedding|

Floral infused California wedding

From a ceremonial color palette of blush and pops of pastel to a celebratory reception drenched in bright vibrant colors with lush greenery and gold, this Belmond El Encanto wedding gushed breathtaking romance. Beyond swoon-worthy florals and event design by Camellia Floral Design and Danae Grace Events, respectively, made this gala one for the books.

More from the bride on the nuptials, as photographed by Michelle Beller and featured on Style Me Pretty

I relished in making every detail memorable – for us and our friends and family. When I first sat down with Danae Pearce, with Danae Grace Events, my wedding planner, she instantly understood my style and dream design. We really wanted to create something that complimented the El Encanto and its gorgeous ceremony site, including a wisteria-lined lily pond and brick courtyard. Our inspiration became “a timeless, elegant, romantic affair with breathtaking details” full of florals and pops of color…

 Danae was able to capture our inspiration in every fashion. On the day of the wedding, as my dad and I approached the bridge covered with rose petals built over the pond to serve as our aisle, I looked into Itai’s eyes and my heart was full. A bridge covered with rose petals was built over the pond and served as our aisle. The sun shone; it was 75 degrees; gorgeous flowers in shades of blush and pink surrounded us in all directions; and we could feel the love and support as we said our vows in front of those who mean the most to us.

Absolutely stunning.
