It was another beautiful day in Paradise and I was surrounded by all these lovely ladies pampering the bride, Jena. Her friends were waiting on her hand and foot , and with such pleasure . I may have had a moment where I wished I was in her shoes.... Needless to say it was a breeze working with her . She wanted to go for a very clean and classic look . So I pulled her hair back and high up and created what the girls called "a flower" out of her hair. I finished it off with a tiara and a veil. She loved the outcome, as did all the girls. The day was a success.. here are some pics
It was my first time doing a wedding at the beautiful Los Suenos (the dreams) Marriot Hotel and resort. It is located just 10 minutes north of Jaco, on a large stretch of land where the Jungle meets the ocean. Just breathtaking.
On this day, I was so pleased to have such an amazing group of girls around me while preparing the bride for her special moment. They all have known each other for so long, hence the great energy between them all. Full of laughter and smiles, the day went very smoothly.
The bride wanted to go with a soft, and natural look , so I gave her big loose beachy waves, with a few pieces pulled back. She was so excited because it was exactly what she had pictured in her mind.
There were seven Brides maids and all wanted to stick with the same theme; low messy side buns. Since they all had different texture and volume, I customized each one according to the girl.
The Mother of the Bride was a Diane Keaton type . So bubbly and full of life :) I styled her hair in a more mature version of Marilyn Monroe. It brought tears to all their eyes to see each other the way they had imagined, and it gave me a warm feeling inside. Reminds me of how much I love what I do :)
Enjoy the pictures!!!
Monica , the bride, met a friend of mine a week before the wedding. This is how we got connected. But even if she wouldn't have met my friend, she fatefully stayed at The Parador, Manuel Antonio , which is one of the hotels I work with anyways. Such a small world! Needless to say , she is a DOLL!
So happy and pleasant to be around, Monica allowed me to create a look derived from a few favorite hair photos, and my own artistry. She imagined being some sort of Grecian goddess ,but not too over the top, all the while preserving her own unique personality. This is what we came up with :)
Sorry to those of you who have been waiting for more pictures, I've just been pretty busy. Unfortunately I had misplaced my camera during the last week and half, so haven't been able to take photos of all the stuff I've done :( But thankfully, the brides have agreed to send me some pics once they get settled in back at home.... I will post them as they come. Thanks and Enjoy!
