There’s just something about an elegant, black-tie wedding that makes us so excited about work. Whether it’s the understated elegance of the bride or the dapper, polished groom we love any event that is a beautifully executed celebration of marriage. Our clients S & C pulled off one of my favorite semi-formal weddings that we have done and one that exudes sophistication.

The top tier team of vendors that helped create their vision for their wedding day did a stunning job in implementing a little femininity with romance in the ombre color palette ranging from blush to wine, while maintaining that heir of elegance. Our bride S wanted a very naturally enhanced, soft makeup look, creating that “best version of herself” with soft, barely-there waves pulled up into a loose half-updo. The beauty look created for her along with her understated elegant gown and jewelry made for the perfect timeless bride.

S shared her happiness of her experience with Blush with these kind words.

“Thank you so so so much for absolutely everything. My hair and makeup were perfect. The makeup stayed for the entire time. My bridesmaids all loved their hair and makeup and commented on how it was some of the best hair and makeup they’d ever had done. We also had comments from guests and husbands, so everyone felt wonderful! You and your team absolutely are the best, and I feel so lucky that you were part of the day. Thank you again for everything.”

S & C’s elegant fete could not have been any more perfect to be featured on Carats & Cake. Their feature can be found here.

I think we can all agree we just want to forget that 2020 happened. While everyone’s lives were turned upside down with COVID, here in Napa we also had a devastating fire that destroyed some of Napa’s most storied venues. Thus S + M had several reasons to move their wedding to the beautiful Filoli […]

There is nothing that I love more than Christmas and weddings, so when they are combined, it’s absolutely amazing. P + S planned their Yountville wedding at the end of December during the only time both of their busy schedules allowed.
