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!

Bridechilla commercial shoot x2 | 2012

Bridechilla wear  ::  Alternative apparel 100% cotton,
eco-sensitive chill wear, a little edgy with a lot of style!

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!


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!
