Romantic, Natural Wedding Hair & Makeup

We are swooning over this romantic hair and makeup by Beauty and the Blush Artistry. The loose hair embellished with Italian ruscus greenery paired against the subtle rose makeup feels ultra-romantic. This look is only enhanced by the other soft pastel hues in this shoot by Lauren Peele Photography and stylist, Lindsey Brunk. We loved the mixed peachy-pinks and the way the makeup works in harmony with the rest of the styling.

Emily Riggs Bridal Genova

Emily Riggs Bridal is one of our all-time favorite designers. The gowns are unique, magical, romantic, and truly one-of-a-kind. The textures and colors never cease to amaze us, and the Genova gown is no exception. The silhouette features a plunging V in both the front and back, long fish tail train, and scalloped hem, all in watercolor lace in blue and blush. Dreamy. Quite possibly the best part about this gown? It is handmade in Portland, Oregon.

Shades of Sapphire & Peach

Moody blues and soft peaches linked up here to deliver some serious magic. Give us cafe au lait dahlias and a sapphire ring and we're set for life. And that deep blue sapphire suede linen with suspended peach pampas grass overhead is just super dreamy.

GRAPEFRUIT MOJITO RECIPE

INGREDIENTS 

Servings: 2

3 tablespoons sugar 

3 tablespoons water

20 sprigs of fresh mint 

4 tablespoons lime juice 

2 ounces white rum 

2 ounces fresh grapefruit juice 

4 ounces sparkling water 

Slices of grapefruit and extra mint sprigs for garnish 

Ice as needed 

DIRECTIONS

Add sugar and water to a saucepan and bring mixture to a simmer, cooking until the sugar dissolves. Set aside to cool. 

Add fresh mint and lime juice to a glass and muddle. The lime helps break down the mint and bring out the flavor. 

Top each glass with ice 

Pour in rum, grapefruit juice, and half sugar mixture, and stir 

Top each glass with a splash of sparking water, slices of grapefruit, and a sprig of mint! 

Grace Loves Lace Rosa

Simple in structure, yet ornate with its abstract rose embroidery, this nude-lined sheath wedding gown is wildy romantic. This comes as no surprise since any Grace Loves Lace gown basically has our heart. We love Rosa's fitted silhouette and fresh ivory tone, and how the oversized stencil rose embroidery is complemented by a layer of geometric lace, bringing texture to the pattern. The v-back drops into an almost-three foot train with an edge that follows the rose pattern, and a conceled finger loop. Rosa is extremely limited and handmade to order.

Shades of Pink & Copper

We are loving the unique qualities of a metallic copper mixed into your wedding palette. Pair with shades of soft pink for feminine feels. Copper flatware and candlesticks tucked into hand-dyed blush runners, and mauve roses galore, the look is super romantic. Style copper into your hairpiece and you've threaded the theme right through.
