Mr & Mrs K | Healdsburg CA | 2012

Another absolutely stunning Off the Beaten Path couple captured, this time, by Sasha Photography. Betsey Oliver and I created upscale, glamorous looks for each of these gorgeous gals. She did the hair, I did the makeup, the result was a cohesive look for the entire bridal party, designed to feel a little ‘red carpet’ while not overdone and leaving each true to their own individuality. They were so fun to work with and one of the most picture perfect bridal parties I’ve seen!
Sasha and his team were professional and personal with the group, a pleasure to work with. Sasha’s photos are each true works of art that document the day of this happy couple beautifully. Visit Sasha’s blog for more!
Congratulations Laura & Scott!

Mr & Mrs G | Napa Valley, Ca | 2011

I’m thrilled to share that this wedding
was recently featured on Style Me Pretty!


This true ‘Bridechilla’ should give lessons on how to be the perfect bride! Not only was she gorgeous, she was calm and organized all through the excitement of planning this amazing event to marry the one she loves. Twisted Willow Farm, a spectacular place surrounded by vineyards + an organic farm in the Napa Valley and offered exclusively through Off the Beaten Path Weddings, was the perfect venue for these two down to earth love birds.

Dan & Natalie Watson of Watson Studios did an amazing job of capturing the beauty of the bride and groom as well as all the venue had to offer.

Mr & Mrs S | Sonoma, Ca | 2011

This wedding was an absolutely gorgeous production facilitated by Leah Bertoli of Bertoli Bridal & Design. The venue alone is amazing but Leah and her team really outdid themselves,  from the custom  lighting to the one of a kind floral arrangements, not a detail was spared. It was stunning!
And speaking of stunning… this sweet bride and her entire bridal party of dentists were just that!

Sara and I designed a look for her makeup that was appropriately glamorous and highlighted her natural beauty. Lauren Kelsay tied the look together seamlessly with Sara’s hair in a beautiful updo with lots of volume and style. Sara was a true beauty!

Congratulations Sara & Greg!

Mr & Mrs L | BR Cohn Winery, Sonoma Ca | Wedding Makeup & Hair Artist Veronica Passalacqua

I had the pleasure of working with this gorgeous bride for her summer wedding in Sonoma. There was very little I needed to do to transform Miranda from her beautiful everyday self into a blushing bride. Together we created a look that felt very natural, the focus on her glowing skin and fresh pink cheek. Her hair has beautiful natural curl which we enhanced and pinned up just slightly to frame her face. The end result was absolutely stunning and flowed very naturally with the rest of the event.

The beautiful photos are the work of Jill Doherty Photography. Jill did a great job capturing the Miranda and Nick, their quiet excitement and overflowing love for each other. 

Congratulations Miranda & Nick!
