We absolutely loved working with Kaori for her January San Francisco City Hall ceremony. Kaori wanted a natural beauty look for her makeup, and graceful bridal updo for her hair style.
At her trial, we loved learning how she met her fiancé, Aaron, in Japan and how their relationship grew over the years. Not only is this a fun part of the trial, it really helps us learn about who our brides are. Matching a bride’s vision for hair and makeup is much more than copying a look off a piece of paper – you need a deep understanding of their personality.
In this case, we think we nailed it! Sometimes when it rains the best moments occur, and San Francisco wedding photographer Larissa Cleveland did an amazing job a capturing the spirit of the day. Special thanks to Larissa for these great images, and a big congratulations to Kaori and Aaron!
We worked with Kathy at the Fairmont in San Francisco for her wedding hair and makeup services. Mei did nine services, including touch-up services at the Flood Mansion. Kathy was looking for natural beauty makeup with a less finished, looser look for her hairstyle. We loved how it turned out, and have to say, this is one beautiful couple! Congratulations!
It was totally worth getting up at 4:30am in the morning for this multi-venue, beautifully planned celebration in San Francisco. We began the day at the Westin St. Francisco and ended up at the Palace Hotel just down the street. Special thanks to Sherman Chu for these incredible images.
We individually placed the flowers in in the top right photo below!
