Una Bella Sera 2009

Once again this year, I was fortunate enough to participate in Una Bella Sera - a seriously glamourous event designed by Amazae Events and Nicole Ha Designs. Crystal and Nicole are not only 2 of my favorite vendors to work with, but they seriously freaking talented too! They had several different themed rooms and I was lucky enough to be assigned the Europe room inspired by Marie Antoinette. This was a dream room to shoot and I actually think I will be using some of the fabulously sexy ideas when planning my little sister's wedding (if and when that time comes). There was also a dress designer {Jinza}, model {Kelly}, and hair & makeup artist {Maria Chang} assigned to the Europe Room.

Maria Chang and I arrived at 12:30 to prep for the event, once we saw the room design and gown, we knew how we wanted to style the hair and make-up. We had asked Nicole for some matching ribbon, feathers, jewels and a glue gun to make a hair piece. I just love what we were able to come up with!

{I will put up all of the credits to who contributed to this room soon!}

I just LOVE the table top details!

Lush umbrellas hanging from the ceiling!

Ugh! LOVE this slipper by Glass Slipper Gourmet!

The chair covers by Wild Flower Linens are heavenly!

thi cosmetics Press Event

Last Thursday I got the opportunity to participate in a press event hosted by Thi Cosmetics. Taylor Pham od Thi Cosmetics is one if the best hair and make-up artists of our wedding industry and I absolutely love whenever I get to work with both her and her business partner, Mimi. The night was a huge success with the help from Gloria Wong Design {formerly Sash & Sugar}, Passiflora Designs, Enhanced Lighting, Jen's Cakes and Studio MSV. Guests were greeted with champagne, dessert and got to sit in the beauty seat to get Thi's Lush Lashes applied. Everyone was looking hot with their luscious lashes, even me!!!

Andrew of Studio MSV put together this AWESOME video of the event. In my opinion, Andrew is one of the best videographers we have in our industry! See for yourself!

I was so excited when I walked in the door and saw a shot from one of our recent shoots gracing the walls!

And the whole gang!

Maria and I had such an incredible time photographing Babs and Russ for the Couture Couple Contest. They graciously welcomed us into their home, life, and friends - we are truly better people for having met them. More details to come with the photos, but until then, enjoy mine and Maria's adventure in Oregon!
