What do you like best about the age you are now? I love my 30’s. Every year I grow more comfortable in my skin and more settled into all aspects of my crazy my life! I wouldn’t wish to be back in my 20’s. I definitely had a blast but I’m happy to look back at those wild memories and see how far I’ve come!
What advice do you wish you could give your 13 year old self? Just trust everything will fall into place exactly as it is supposed to! And wear SPF 50 every day because they will turn into sunspots before you know it!!
What is the most exciting thing about your work industry? There are so many exciting aspects of my job; from fashion weeks, to visiting beautiful destinations all over the world, but the most exciting part of my job is meeting so many cool, strong, funny, interesting, independent women.
A Beautiful California Summer Wedding
With a palette that is soft and neutral, a romantic gardenesque vibe, this luminous California Summer wedding will have you oohing and aahing. And that bridal party? Girl gang goals. But first, from the feature on Magnolia Rouge, a cute story on how the beautiful couple met,
Sixteen years ago, back in the days of chubby faces, braces, and tucked in polo shirts, we met as sixth graders at our private middle school. Through the seven years we spent together in middle, high school and beyond, we became closer as friends as the years went on. Fortunately, even with life paths that sent both of us in vastly different directions, we stayed great friends throughout college, and both moved back to Las Vegas after graduation. Between English class, prom, football games, bad college decisions, great career advances and more… we had seen the best and the worst of each other. Staying friends for as long as we have has certainly paid off because we quickly realised that we have a love for one another that is so much more than friendship. Although we were once awkward ten-year-old friends, we are now twenty-somethings in love committed to happily ever after.

Gorgeous Hair and Makeup for California Bride Featured on Once Wed
More from the bride…
For our wedding, Duncan and I knew we wanted a formal but relaxed vibe. We weren’t sure what that looked like when we started planning, but the dress I chose epitomized that feel. It had both a structure and a playful movement to it. Beyond that, we weren’t sure of the details, other than we knew there had to be lots of dancing, and donuts! Thankfully our wedding planner was a rockstar. She would take any idea we had, and bring it to life in a beautiful way.
Brides Feature / A Stunning Garden Wedding
Ashley wanted to create a glamorous jungle vibe inside the tent, so strands of vines were strung from the ceiling. Mirrored tables and gold chairs added a subtle Art Deco vibe, kept in check with organic arrangements that featured tendrils of greenery sneaking around the place settings. “We wanted our wedding to be a mix of elegance, chic simplicity, and fun,” says the bride.

A Beautiful Ojai, California Sunset Wedding (and the Glowing Bride)
At TEAM, we believe in enhancing- not masking-one’s natural beauty. Case in point, this radiant bride…she simply glows, doesn’t she? The couple’s sunset wedding, photographed by Jake Anderson, is featured on Style Me Pretty. Here the groom shares why they chose an Ojai, California destination for the celebration…
We picked Ojai because it’s gorgeous, magical, and peaceful. Nicole grew up in California and goes back every chance she gets. Nicole introduced John to Ojai years ago and since then they go back at least once every year. When I proposed to Nicole, it was at 6am in the morning before we were headed to the airport to go to California to celebrate being together for 10 years. While we were in California we almost eloped but instead decided that it was the perfect way to share our favorite place with all of our friends and family that live across the country.
