FEATURED: Sophisticated Tropical Wedding on Pacific Weddings

We’re always so humbled when our “friendors” consider us to be a part of their wedding day; they know how things work and how the chaos of weddings can be, and we are so honored when they respect our talent and expertise. It’s even more exciting when the bride is someone whose work we love and admire and we know because of her impeccable style, her wedding will be absolutely gorgeous.

Before I moved to the Bay Area, I did some thorough research of who’s who in the wedding market and Jenny’s work wooed me immediately. Her soft, romantic style of photography is what brides’ dreams are made of when they envision their wedding photos, so you can imagine how giddy I was that she had our team be a part of her wedding day.

Jenny is a perfect reflection of a Blush bride and when the photos by the amazing Trynh Photo came back I was blown away, yet expected how beautiful they were at the same time. We did a soft natural look for Jenny and a loosely swept chignon, which we adore and know she will still love when she looks at her photos in 20 years. Her classic bridal beauty paired with her sophisticated tropical style perfectly paired for a stunning destination wedding. So much so, Pacific Weddings, the authority in luxury destination weddings featured Jenny’s wedding on their blog. With a top tier team of vendors, we knew her wedding would be featured on a luxury destination blog at some point.

As always, the Hawaii team did a beautiful job with Lead Stylists Alex and Mary creating Jenny’s signature style. You can see more photos on the Pacific Weddings blog.

Bright, Luxe Paradise Wedding | Hawaii Wedding | Hawaii Wedding Makeup & Hair

This wedding has to be one of our favorite weddings this year not just because of the superstar list of vendors, but also because the bride was such a pleasure to work with and she had amazing taste in her vision for her wedding. Her laid back, yet happy go lucky personality showed in the design as she just wanted her wedding to be a big party. 

For her makeup and hair, she said she wanted that bronzy glow like Chrissy Teigen, and a soft romantic updo. We think she made the perfect bride and wish her and her new husband all the best of life and love in their marriage.

WEDDING SERIES: Why Makeup and Hair Stylists are One of the Most Important Wedding Vendors

Makeup and hair stylist is one of the most important and crucial, yet undervalued vendor in the wedding industry. Many brides believe they can do their makeup and hair themselves, but in actuality bridal makeup and hair is not everyday makeup. It is a type of makeup that requires using just the right technique and application to look flawless in photos and in person. Brides spend thousands of dollars on their dress, shoes, flowers, and ring, but skip out on their makeup and hair. 

Blush Makeup & Hair is a boutique wedding makeup and hair based in San Francisco and Hawaii. Blush provides luxurious beauty experiences that help brides look and feel amazing on their big day. Blush is also available for domestic and international travel.
