REAL Weddings: A ‘Joy de Vivre’ Wedding Production and Photography by Michael + Anna Costa

michaelandanna1
Another gorgeous wedding design by Joy de Vivre accompanied by the stellar shooting of photographers Michael + Anna Costa. This beautiful Italian-style villa is known as the Sunstone Winery Villa in the gorgeous Santa Ynez Valley.  Not only is this location just stunning, but so was Ashley’s canvas, the bride, Laura. Her look is something of romance, softness, and femininity just as a blushing bride should be on her big day. Now, many of you ladies will look at makeup like this and instantly think ” I WANT that look because she looks so natural”. Well,  do you know that it takes a true artist to make the client appear as if her makeup is just “barely there” while also making it pop on camera and in photos? Skilled makeup artists such as Ashley, know how to walk that fine line between glowing on camera and also in-person.

I always express to my clients that I am simply the instrument in which to provide them with their ideal best versions of themselves.

– Ashley
