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.

URBAN DICTIONARY DEFINITION – A bridechilla remains easy going, relaxed and down to earth during her entire wedding experience. She is not defined by her wedding day but by the experience of being with those that she cares most about. THE “unzilla”
I love everything Mary Ellen Murphy dreams up (she’s also the creative brains behind Off The Beaten Path Weddings) this is her latest ingenious endeavor. Gorgeous photos by onelove photographer Julie Hanna. Scrumptious & beautiful custom cupcakes by Heidi Hebein, freelance pastry chef/baker. Enjoy the pics then order some goodies for a bridechilla in your life!
….and lastly, a little behind the scenes fun shot!
What a gorgeous collaboration of abundant talent this event was! The very laid back bride and her handsome groom were a dream to work with. The breathtaking private estate in Napa (offered exclusively through Off the Beaten Path Weddings) was … Continue reading →
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.
This bride was so fun! She had an idea of what she wanted from the moment we started together and I just love the way her look evolved.
I called her my purple girl! She loved purple eye shadow and knew right away that’s the look she wanted to rock on her big day. We found the purple-est purple I had and created the rest of her look around it! A fresh finish in her foundation and sweet pink on her cheeks balanced out the eyes perfectly. Lashes popped and lips that that mimicked her cheeks, this gorgeous bride was ready to get hitched!
Katie and Tom were such a fun couple to work with. I first met Katie to do makeup for her engagement portraits back in 2009! I knew in the first few minutes of that appointment they were going to be a hoot to work with on their wedding day! These two had great chemistry and absolutely lit up the room! I know they have a fun road ahead with a long, happy marriage.
Katie wanted to keep her makeup and hair simple while at the same time making it special. After trying a couple of different looks at her trial run appointment, we decided together on this very special yet understated look. Katie looked and felt like herself, just the wedding day version!
To showcase Katie’s gorgeous big eyes we lined them with a thin, clean brown gel liner and accentuated the shape with soft neutral shadows. We gave her a few extra lashes and a pop of color in her cheek and lip, which brought the whole look to ‘bride!’
Lovely photography of this couple was done by the ever so talented Deb Laver.
