Southwestern Wedding Where Bohemian Meets Black Tie

TEAM Hair and Makeup | Southwestern Wedding Where Bohemian Meets Black Tie

What do you get when you add a touch of Southwestern, a dollop of Bohemian, a splash of black tie…and puppies? Nothing short of the happiest of wedding celebrations, California style. Featured on Green Wedding Shoes, the lovely floral-adorned bride- whose makeup and hair was styled by TEAM’s Nicole and Kita using THM Hair Extensions in color Felicia- shares her favorite moments…

TEAM Hair and Makeup | Southwestern Wedding Where Bohemian Meets Black Tie

It’s hard to pick just one. My top three are:

1. Our first look. Not only did Will look so incredibly handsome, but he surprised me with the news of the newest addition to our family. A puppy! A little brother (golden retriever) for our Ivy. Not to mention, our first look was an intimate affair, just Will, me and our… rattlesnake wrangler 10 feet away.

2. Our golden retriever pup, Ivy, running down the aisle mid-ceremony. We knew we wanted Ivy involved in our big day but we weren’t sure whether she’d want to be involved given all the commotion. At first it looked like she was happy watching from a distance, but halfway through the ceremony she decided she wanted to be with all her people — and came sprinting down the aisle! It was a perfect surprise.

3. Walking into our reception and seeing it for the first time. Our wedding planners, Colette and Kaitlin, made sure that we were the first people to see our reception. It was such a surreal moment seeing all of our hard-work come together in such a beautiful way. The Hudson Project was already jamming out, so Will and I got to be the first ones on the dance floor before anyone else arrived. It was awesome.

What better mingling of palettes than a delicate garden wedding mixed with bold florals? Add to that a love-at-first-sight couple and you’ve got yourself warm, intimate and timeless nuptials that’ll give you butterflies.

More on the atmosphere, via Style Me Pretty… We chose a darker color palette with simple gold accents to give it a deep and romantic feel. Given that the reception was taking place in the garden, we imagined string lights and an abundance of candles to create a warm atmosphere. We also relied heavily on the beauty of the property, which served as an incredible backdrop.

Tips on having a timeless wedding [via Wedding Chicks] from wedding stylists Imagine I believe that creating timeless weddings that exude elegance is an art form I’ve developed over time as a seasoned wedding planner. I work closely with creatives who effortlessly blend timeless design elements with a hint of each couple’s personal touches. Social media opens the door for many trendy elements so I use discretion when it comes to incorporating some of these ideas into the overall feel of the wedding. It is important to share with client’s that their wedding can embody tradition without feeling dated.

We believe the same; which is why we love timeless hair and makeup…

TEAM Spotlight / Primary Makeup Stylist Nicole I.

By |2018-04-17T18:13:07+00:00April 16th, 2018|Makeup, Spotlight, Uncategorized|

We’re back with our TEAM Spotlight series…Hooray! This round we have the distinct pleasure of featuring TEAM Co-Director, Primary Makeup Artist, and THM Hair Extensions‘ Partner, Nicole I. Beloved by brides and bridal parties for her calming presence, she creates a comfortable and relaxing environment on location. Nicole’s intelligence and stellar professionalism comes through in her beautiful makeup artistry, offering unsurpassed looks time and again. Read on to find out what her favorite on-site wedding location is and what she would tell her 13 year old self…

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.

 Your favorite on-site wedding location is… San Ysidro Ranch
When you’re not working, what do you love to do the most? When I’m not working I am spending time with my family and having early evening dance parties with my husband, 4 year daughter and 5 month old son!
Go-to song/TV show/movie…Homeland, 60 minutes (because I’m a grandma at heart)
If you could work on any wedding anywhere in the world, where would it be? Bali- it is my most favorite place in the world so any excuse to go back time and time again I am down!
Thank you, Nicole! Want to see more of her work? Follow her new Instagram!

A Beautiful California Summer Wedding

By |2018-03-29T21:03:17+00:00March 29th, 2018|Featured, Real Wedding|

Beautiful California Summer Wedding / TEAM Hair and Makeup

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.
