The Wedding: Sahar + Jesse at The Santa Barbara Four Season’s Biltmore

We had the absolute pleasure of working with Sahar for her big day. We had an initial consultation with her in January 2011, although her wedding wasn’t until October 2011. Talk about being on it! Upon meeting with Sahar in the Four Seasons, we knew right away we were going to get along great. We discussed the inspiration behind her wedding and her wedding style. She was going for classic bridal glam with a touch of drama. She wanted her eyes to pop and for her skin to glow. She was still unsure about having her hair up or down, but wanted our expertise to help decide. We scheduled her trial two weeks before her wedding , which is always highly recommended. This allowed her ample time to gather ideas and inspirations, as clients tend to change their minds throughout the course of planning.

For her trial, Sahar wanted to try a slightly dramatic smokey purple eye with pink lips and long faux lashes. After discussing her hair concerns, we all felt hair down would look best, especially with the strapless cut on her dress. Sahar and her mom loved what we did at the trial and we looked forward to seeing them in the coming weeks.

When we arrived on the day of, Sahar was all smiles. She waited patiently as we worked on her wedding party. The weather was truly unique and gave a spa like ambiance to the day. The low coastal fog had not burned off the shore, yet the sun was shining. When Sahar sat in our chair, she began to decribe some changes from the trial. As much as she loved the smokey look, we decided to brighten it up a bit. She completely trusted her artist Ashley, and did not ask to see a mirror until she was completed. We went with more matte eyeshadows and emphasis on the eye liner.

The new look came out perfect and Sahar was overjoyed with everything as well. Trials are great because they really narrow down everything to the finest of detail. Even if you do change your mind on a certain style, at least you will never have to say “Wish I would have had a trial.”

For her hair, we decided on keeping it down with a deep, romantic wave. We added extensions in her hair, which created length and desired volume. We built volume to the crown of the head, where her Swarsovski headband was placed as pop of dazzle to the style.

The whole event was captured by Photography by Charise and coordinated by Kristin at Joy De Vivre.

What a truly magical day for such an awesome Bride. Sahar, hope it was everything and more… Best Wishes! xoxo
