I’m tired so I am putting all of these pre wedding photos in one post. First up was Friday afternoon Hotel Laguna for Candice’s wedding. She had a large bridal party. I did all the hair and the bride’s makeup -didn’t get a lot of photos though. Catherine fellow #beautyninja did makeup for the rest of the bridal party. It was warm again, but not too bad. The photos have a description if you click on them.

Saturday was Naomi’s wedding in San Clemente, but they got ready in Ladera Ranch, right down the road from my house-Yay!  I did makeup for 6 including bride Naomi and Hair for 5. Again, not a  lot of photos. I took those with my new Iphone 6 plus- not too bad.  Naomi and her party were just the sweetest, so accommodating I thought I was getting married. I didn’t get any of her in the dress though. I can’t wait to see the photos.

Finally today was bride Wendy at Old Ranch County Club in Seal Beach. I did her hair and makeup early this morning. She was quite nervous but I think she finally calmed down a bit. She looked like a princess so very pretty. I did get some photos of her in her dress yay!

I get to rest a bit and then tomorrow I meet with  November bride Kylie in Trabuco Canyon for a consultation in the afternoon.

Saturday was a busy day.  Shannon had 9 bridesmaids and 2 Mom’s that got hair and makeup and of course, the bride herself. She got ready at the Garden Cottage in San Clemente-I think I have been there 5 times so far this year. It was hot. Sadly there was no A/C , but one of her bridesmaids got us a huge fan-funny story she actually got it from the liquor store-it wasn’t for sale lol. She talked the manager into letting us use it. Brianna -you rock!!  I had my girl Catherine #beautyninja do the makeup and I did all the hair and bride Shannon’s hair and makeup. The photos are posted below.

Sunday I met with bride Kristen in Corona for a consultation. I am looking forward to doing her wedding November 23rd.

Monday, I did hair and makeup for Sylvia she had a very intimate ceremony in Mission Viejo and is a bit shy so I didn’t post any photos of her, but she looked lovely.

A big thank you to Brittany for writing a nice review for me!

I had Lisa for my hair. I had an idea of what i wanted but had no idea if it would actually work. When I had my trial she got it spot on. It was absolutely beautiful!! When it came to the wedding day she did an amazing job. total I had seven bridesmaids so she did hair for eight girls that day and every one was beautiful!!! All throughout the night we got compliments on all the girls hair. She did an amazing job and so easy to work with. I would definitely use her again!!!…

Saturday in Mission Viejo I did hair for bride Shannon and her 7 bridesmaids and Mother of the bride and makeup for the bride and her Mom and Maid of honor. I loved the purple theme of her wedding. I did lot’s of variations of braids and messy buns. I got some great hair shots of Shannon and her girls.

Then Sunday in my neighborhood of Rancho Santa Margarita, I just had bride Kendra to do makeup and hair for.  She showed me a photo of a side do with pin curls on Pinterest and I did a variation on that.  She loved it. I hope both all brides stayed cool over the weekend. Enjoy the photos-again click on the photo for the description of what it is.

Since I just had one bride to do on Sunday I was able to do makeup and hair for Joanna’s engagement photos in RSM as well.  I am looking forward to doing her wedding in April 2015.

Today I did makeup and hair for bride Alyse in Mission Viejo and hair for 6 bridesmaids for the #shipleyhopkinswedding. My fellow #beautyninja Catherine Crump did makeup for the bridesmaids-great job. For bride Alyse I did a dramatic eye with long individual lashes and very soft waves in her hair. I snapped as many photos as I could of her before she walked out the door. Her photographer Martin Vielma, gave me his info and said I would be able to get tons of photos from him soon. Thanks Martin! I can’t wait to see them. Alyse made a stunning bride. Enjoy the photos. Tomorrow I will be doing hair and makeup for  Shannon’s wedding in Misssion Viejo. I lucked out 2 weddings in my neighborhood this weekend. Yay!

I wanted to say a special thank you to Laura for reviewing me on The Knot. I really appreciate it! Here’s a link and the review below:

“Lisa did my hair and make-up on my wedding day and I absolutely loved it. Prior to the wedding day, she came to my house and did a consultation. She did everything the way that I wanted it. I showed her pictures of the makeup and hair, and she got it spot on. It was natural looking, just like I wanted it. My make-up stayed on all day and there was no need to retouch any of it, except for my lipstick. Keep in mind that it was about 90 degrees on my wedding day. It was absolutely perfect! Thank you Lisa!”
