The hair wreath was a mixture of natural and man made pieces, including real flowers, lace and artificial flowers. The wreath was hand made and custom designed by Akiko Floral Artistry. The use of a simple pink ribbon to secure the hair wreath was used to add the drama of the tails falling down the bride's back. With a glue gun and a few flowers any bride could make their own hair wreath.
Her hair was first curled by Serena Jackson, and then brought to the side for a braid. We kept the ends loose and didn't want' an overly polished look. The bride is wearing a Lisa Marie Couture original gown which was shown at Western Canadian Fashion week. It is a dusty-rose, almost coral colour with rucking down the bust and torso, with a sea of rosettes that belled out and covered the bottom of the gown. The bride's bouquet was a simple gathering of small white-budded flowers secured with twine which can be found at any craft store. Our makeup artist, Mookie Salinas, did an impeccable job with makeup, which is suggested for any bride who is not used to wearing a lot, but still wants to look polished and clean. We kept the face to a flawless finish with minimal foundation, a bit of bronzer and blush. Her eyes were accented with just a bit of brown and gold eyeshadow and black mascara. A simple peach-coral lip finished the look and brought everything together.
