We hope everyone is enjoying our Winter Editorial Shoot so far! Today we are focusing on and sharing some Beauty & Fashion tips for a glamorous mountain wedding. The style and theme of your wedding can all be decided just by the fashion. It’s important to take in account the location of your wedding and the formality of the event. Whether you are going for a rustic mountain wedding or wanting to go with a more classic glam look. We are currently obsessed with the sleek and elegant look and love this style for a winter wedding!
“The gown used for the St. Regis shoot satisfies several different trends and style sensibilities; It’s a soft bodied gown that flatters curves while still being comfortable and sultry. The decadent beading on the bodice harkens to an Art-Deco feel of the 1930’s. While the lace base layer of the gown appeals to the current love affair with lace in wedding dresses. The perfect combination of vintage and modern.
This dress is designed by Badgley Mischka and is shown in a subtle latte tone. A color that flatters many different complexions. Albeit a slim gown, it doesn’t lack on drama – a signature of Mark Badgley and James Mischka.” – Hilary Anderson, Alta Moda Bridal
THE HAIR & MAKEUP
“The look I created for Weslie was very glamorous. Rather than a fun loving, playful style that would be great for a summer wedding, I went with a sleek, classy style that would compliment a winter wedding. Big, voluminous curls on one side, and sleek, pulled back hair on the other side provide nice contrast. This type of dramatic side swept style is very popular on the red carpet right now, not to mention it’s a great style for showing off some fabulous earrings!
As for the makeup, I stayed within the color scheme of the wedding.. I did a shimmery gold eye shadow with really bold lashes. Bold lashes are always a must for a wedding, as they look great in pictures! Since we went darker on the eyes, I kept the lip nice and soft, almost neutral, with a hint of pink. Adding warm colors to your makeup in the winter is a great way to add a little color and life to your face.” – Stephanie Brinkerhoff, Hair & Makeup by Steph
THE GROOM FASHION
Every stunning and glamorous bride needs a dapper and polished groom! For this shoot we wanted to go with a simple and classic black tie look. Our groom model, Phillip, wore a fitted H&M black suit, a black DKNY tie and a nice white shirt by Calvin Klein. To complete this masculine look he wore Kenneth Cole lace-up boots that are perfect for a winter mountain wedding! A Tip for brides is to not forget about your man! We know you spend a lot of time and expense planning your look, and you should also spend time and planning out your grooms attire too! After all, it’s his wedding too and he will be in all of the pictures with you!
