Our Brilliant Bride Matty | The Neon Museum, Las Vegas

Our brilliant bride Matty and her new hubby Josh tied the knot during an intimate ceremony at the The Neon Museum in Las Vegas. We love a garden or traditional chapel wedding, BUT… this was beyond cool! 😎The fun and unique atmosphere created the perfect location for these two to say I do!

Matty looked absolutely stunning in her Maggie Sottero gown. The fitted tulle draping and soft sweetheart neckline really stood out among the neon signs and bright decoration. Her florals by Layers of Lovely Floral Design are the definition of a perfect bridal bouquet! 😍

Beauty Tips to Beat the Heat

Summer is finally here!! The sun is out and the heat is coming! ☀️Although summer is an amazing time of year, it can bring its challenges - especially when it’s wedding season. To help you conquer the heat, we put together our best advice and favorite products to help you look your best, no matter the temp!

Makeup

It’s time to say goodbye to melting foundation and smeared mascara. But before we go there, let’s start at the beginning. Sunscreen. 👏Many people forget about this first, and very important, step. Some sunscreens can create an oily layer, but using oil-free moisturizers with SPF can help you minimize layering heavy products on the skin. Sunscreen is essential in the summer months! Check out our faves:

Do you have trouble with your makeup sliding and smudging? Well the answer to your trouble is...primer! “A primer is a really good investment to ensure a beautiful, matte complexion” sayings communications manager for Deralogica, Sonette Donker. Here are some of our favorites:

Everyone loves that healthy, natural bridal radiance. ✨However, it can be hard to obtain that in the heat. Fiona Stiles, a professional makeup artist, says, “Avoid cream foundations or anything too luminous, as the humidity will make you extra shiny and sweaty-looking if you have too much sparkle on your skin.” We recommend using products with a lighter, more feathery texture - tinted moisturizers, lip glosses and stains, and cream blushes. That way you can still have glow that isn’t over-the-top shiny.

TOUCH-UPS

An oily T-zone instantly portrays the message "I'm hot, like really hot”. 😰To eliminate that in seconds, nothing beats blotting papers. They are super cheap, easy, and convenient. By slightly pressing the blotting sheet onto the oily parts of the face, it can instantly take away that unwanted shine. If your makeup needs a perk as well, blot first and then follow up with a pressed powder. 

WEDDING TIP: Getting a bridal gown with pockets can give you the advantage of carrying blotting papers, tissues, or anything you need with you throughout the day. 👰

Sedona Elopement Styled Shoot

We were over the moon with excitement when asked to collaborate with an amazing team of vendors on this styled shoot in Sedona, AZ. 🌼This team hiked up a mountain to get these breath-taking shots, and it couldn’t have turned out more perfect! 👏

The bride looked so gorgeous in her fun & flirty Hayley Paige gown. 😍One spectator during the hike even described it to look like a “cloud”! Doesn’t get more magical than that. ☁️The skirt perfectly complemented the view and whimsical feel of the day.

A huge thank you goes out to Sarah Smiles Photography for sharing these magical photos with us! Keep scrolling for more inspiration and all the vendor details! ✨
