Bride Spotlight: Ashley’s Rancho Santa Fe Wedding 8.18.12

Ashley was not only a stunning bride but a beautiful person inside and out, we fully enjoyed working with her and her bridesmaids on her wedding day. Her makeup focus was natural and glowing, we added clip-in hair extensions to give her hair that extra oomph! We highly recommend clip-ins for brides who can use an extra bit of length or volume. They are easy to wear and 100% believable on your wedding day.

Bijou Bride – Lucy: Southcoast Winery 1.23.14

It has been so long since we’ve posted! Why did so much time pass? Well I wrote a book! A time consuming effort that left little time for blog writing. To get back into the swing of posting our wedding work, I wanted to share this beauty video from Blue Tiger Films of a wedding we participated in on January 23rd at Southcoast Winery in Temecula. Lucy’s wedding was absolutely stunning and it was a true honor help this bride feel beautiful for her walk down the aisle. Lucy was so kind and gracious, we knew we just had to work with her when we met her a year before her wedding.

We hope you enjoy this video as much as we do!

Hair and makeup by talented team members Meghan, Sasha and Alli.

Bijou Bride – Kristal 6.22.13

Kristal’s rustic wedding at Pechanga Resort in Temecula was relaxed, fresh and beautiful. Our talented stylist Meghan created this soft, romantic braided upto that complimented her features and helped her stay cool in that Temecula summer heat! Considering going up for your wedding hair? It is a great way to have a ‘predictable’ style that won’t change through the day and will keep you cooler on a hot summer day. We wish Kristal and her husband great happiness as newlyweds!

Bijou Bride – Jaya 6.1.13

June 1st was our busiest wedding day of 2013 with 4 weddings that day throughout Southern California! One of the very special weddings we were fortunate enough to be part of was a lavish Indian wedding held at Hilton Torrey Pines in La Jolla. Jaya, a doctor, left her scrubs behind and was transformed on her wedding day into a bride with gorgeous Indian adornments, we have to say she looked quite gorgeous!


Below you can see the inspiration photo we used for her hairstyle. This elegant, high-volume updo was the perfect style for Jaya’s hair and the overall feel of her wedding.











Congratulations to Jaya and John! Gorgeous photography by

Bijou Bride: Megan 7.6.13

Megan’s US Grant Hotel wedding was simply breathtaking. We focused on creating an old-Hollywood-glamour look for her that complimented her unique features. The historic hotel (and all those chandeliers!) lent itself well to both her beauty look and the overall feel of her wedding. We recommend brides share Megan’s approach by finding a look that suits who you are and also allow your venue to serve as the perfect backdrop!

Bijou Bride- Tina 6.8.13

We love wine country weddings! Tina’s special day at Villa de Amore was a true pleasure to be apart of. She was such a kind, gracious and not to mention beautiful bride! We did a stylized side-pony with lots of volume. The focus of her makeup was sparkling neutrals! Such a classic look for a stunning bride. Her entire bridal party was so much fun to work with!

Bijou Bride: Jenny 4.20.13

Jenny is one of the most down-to-earth, relaxed brides to ever sit in our chair. We loved working with her for her Del Mar wedding this April. We only have a couple of photos to share, but wanted to show this great example of hair with lots of volume with soft beach waves. This is a great way to do a half up, half down style that feels casual enough for the beach but dressed up enough for your wedding day.

Bijou Bride: Stefanie 5.10.13

Green Gables Wedding Estate is one of the most beautiful venues in San Diego. Stefanie’s wedding day was nothing short of amazing at this historic location. The antique, feminine elements in the bridal suite transport you to another era. We only have a few shots from this wedding, but needed to share them anyway. Stefanie looked absolutely gorgeous, her wedding day beauty inspiration was old Hollywood glamour, I have to say we nailed it on this one!

Bijou Bride: Anna 2.9.13

There were so many beautiful photos from this wedding it was difficult to curate, a testament to the amazing talents of ABM Wedding Photography! We loved working with Anna and her family for her wedding day beauty at Morgan Run Country Club. Curls like these are what we live for!


Bijou Bride: Lana 12.8.12

Lana’s Seal Beach wedding was so much fun to be apart of. Her beauty inspiration was Snow White and I have to say she truly looked like a living, breathing fairy tale princess.
