Classic California wedding in an old greenhouse at The Orchid in Santa Barbara | TEAM Hair and Makeup

Wind-swept beauty along the California coast and oh what a charming sight! This classic, organic, and unconventional wedding feels like a breath of fresh air. From the bride…

We fell in love with Dos Pueblos Orchid Farm and knew we wanted it to be our place as soon as we saw it. We looked at several venues in Santa Barbara and this site fit exactly the type of spot that we wanted for our wedding. It was unique, natural, beautiful and had the indoor-outdoor combination that we wanted. We got married outside on the bluffs overlooking the ocean and then had the party inside this beautiful greenhouse/glass structure surrounded by massive oak trees covered in lights.

Rustic and Elegant Ojai, California Wedding featured on Southern California Bride

 Rustic and Elegant Ojai, California Wedding | TEAM Hair and Makeup

A wedding defined with elegance and refinement without the ostentatious fuss, this Ojai celebration brought stunning natural simplicity and the perfect touch of sparkle to a most divine day. More about all the lovely details, featured on The Southern California Bride, below…

When we talked about what we wanted our wedding to feel like, we gravitated toward words like bright, natural, elegant and effortless.  We wanted the wedding to feel like it represented us.  And having been to many weddings as guests, we both knew what we didn’t like – anything opulent or stuffy was definitely out.  That’s how we arrived at the mix of wood, greens, linens and warm metals like copper and rose gold. The colors were inspired by the bride’s childhood home in Santiago, Chile.  Nine months before the wedding, we walked through her father’s beautiful garden and picked flowers, trying different combinations.  What became clear was that we preferred the vibrancy of a Spanish garden to the pastels that are widely used.

Southwestern Wedding Where Bohemian Meets Black Tie

By |2018-08-03T20:22:36+00:00August 3rd, 2018|Featured, Real Wedding|

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…
