Rustic Ranch Wedding Inspiration

This week we bring you some beautiful photography to help you envision your dream California rustic wedding. This style of wedding has a natural, laid-back, comfortable vibe, yet is still refined and absolutely gorgeous. Set on a quiet ranch in San Luis Obispo, the palette of creams, cool blues, dusty pinks, and fresh greens pop against a neutral background.  Feast your eyes on this simple and elegant summer ceremony and reception!

Big Day Beauty

After planning all the little details of your dream wedding, now comes the best part -- choosing the makeup and hairstyle that'll make jaws drop and hearts flutter. Here are some of our favorites, and for the complete list head over to Makeup Tutorials!

Berry Stained Lips:  If you’ve got a berry-themed wedding, I highly suggest following suit and wearing a matching hue on your lips. To help balance the loud color of your lipstick, keep the rest of your makeup neutral by only using shades of beige, tan, and taupe.

Pearly Polished:  This is my go-to look whenever I have something adorning my hair, whether it’s a small tiara or a  flower crown . Since I already have a lot going on up top, I like keeping my makeup low-key by dusting on just a bit of shimmer eyeshadow on the inner corners of the eye. It makes for a more fairytale look, which is perfect for rustic weddings! All I have to do is pair it with a wine-stained lippy, and I’m good to go!

Modern Classic:  A modern bridal makeup is something that brings a bit of old Hollywood glamor into your makeup. If you want to know how to do bridal makeup like this, it boils down to two things: a cat eye and a bright red lipstick that will make everyone go va-va-voom. Don’t forget to swipe on  a bit of highlighter  on your cheekbones to finish the look!

Greek Goddess:  Channel your inner Aphrodite by pairing your headpiece with falsies, a flawless face, and a coral-tinted lip. Keep your brows natural looking by using a light hand when applying a shade that’s close to your brow color.

Bronzed Beauty:  This is a look that’s perfect for ladies who’ve just gotten back from a holiday and were lucky enough to get a tan  at the beach . Now you’ve soaked up a ton of Vitamin D, show off your new color by keeping your makeup simple. Put on some bronzer, get a swipe of mascara, and layer a sheen of gloss on your favorite peach-pink lipstick.

A very special San Ysidro Ranch Wedding

Hello Followers! We had the pleasure of working on a wedding last December with a bride named Wei Wei at San Ysidro Ranch. Wei Wei was not only only of the sweetest brides I have worked with, but gorgeous as well! I am so excited to be able to share these photos, especially since Wei Wei just contacted us again to do her hair and makeup for her Maternity shoot in October! I am thrilled to be able to share not only one, but two life changing memorable events with Wei Wei!

Congratulations to both Wei Wei and her husband Yerpeng on your Marriage and soon to be baby in the baby carriage!!
