Two Looks, One Wedding | Hair & Makeup by Audra Rene Studio

By, April 15, 2013

Ashley and Bryan’s recent wedding started with a traditional, elegant Catholic ceremony at The Immaculata. This was followed by a reception at the historic El Cortez Hotel, located near downtown San Diego.

Ashley was a wonderful bride to work with, and it helped that she had such a great eye for style! After discussing Ashley’s goals for her wedding day look, we decided to create not one, but two custom styles for her! The goal was to give her the versatility, functionality, and most of all, the glamour that she was after on her big day.

Look number one featured gorgeous cascading curls. The beautiful hair seen in these images is all Ashley’s, and it’s even her natural color! I was thrilled to have such an incredible canvas to work with. I swept her curls over to one side, ensuring that could show off the beautiful detailing on her bridal bolero or gown.

The makeup artist for Ashley and her bridal party, Maggie Hansen, created glamorous and flawless finishes for all of the girls. She used a mixture of products, including Temptu and MAC cosmetics.

When it was time for look number two, we only had 15 minutes to pull off this transformation!  I love that in such a short period of time, we were able to create a completely different feeling in this soft, romantic up-do. The up-style let Ashley eat cake, and dance the night away, without giving her hair a second thought. Isn’t that what every bride wants on her wedding day?

When we started planning Anna and David’s gorgeous September wedding, we knew it would be well-suited for a venue such as The Grand Del Mar. This couple is simply brimming with style, as you can see from their showstopper wedding.

After months of planning and preparation, tastings and fittings, and plane rides and phone calls, this was their moment. Following a sentimental ceremony that included family and friends from all parts of the world, Anna and David finally shared a kiss as husband and wife.

Before all of the guests arrived, we gave Anna and David a quick peek of their reception room. They were simply thrilled with the results!  Check out some of the amazing details that represented their elegant and glamorous style.

One of the best parts of working with Anna and David was getting to know their family and friends. Many of the attendees traveled long distances to be there, including Anna’s father and sister, who flew in from Russia! It was fun to be surrounded by such a lively and energetic group. With all the laughing and smiling, there was never a dull moment!
