With its bright splashes of color and sun ray-filled windows of natural light, we can’t help but smile ear to ear over this charming rustic Italian-inspired styled shoot! Captured by Sheradee Hurst Photography, the model bride dazzles in an airy and embellished plunging neckline gown complete with a perfect bow back from Chantilly Couture alongside her dapper groom wearing attire from The Wardrobe OKC. Tony Foss Flowers combined blooms in punchy hues ranging from marigold to baby pink to indigo to bring just the right amount of pizazz to the elegant Tuscan farmhouse-like setting, infusing welcomed doses of color to the wood-heavy backdrop. Keeping true to the rustic theme, bright white chairs accompanied wooden tables, while tabletop decor took on a shabby-chic aesthetic with colored antique drinking glasses, candles and votives, Marianne’s Rentals and Ruby’s Vintage Rentals. We feel as if we’ve been whisked away to an Italian countryside dream! Cheers!

With bright splashes of rich jewel tones, earthy outdoor elements and a luxe bohemian feel, we’re getting all the inspiration we need just in time for fall wedding season from this styled shoot by Marie Rose Events! Striking shades of cobalt, teal and royal blues were at the center of the shoot in everything from the groom’s stylish suit to the crushed velvet table linens from Mood Party Rentals, appropriately topped with overgrown floral arrangements of greenery, colorful roses and  ranunculus. The table settings were topped with vibrant agate place cards and menus featuring the custom monogram, both by Celeste Paper Co. One of our favorite elements of this shoot was the use of cake as centerpieces, with the bride and groom’s cake perfectly embodying the moody, romantic feel of the shoot in a marbled, agate blue wedding cake and charcoal ombre groom’s cake by Mishelle Handy Cakes! The model bride and groom looked dashing against the luxe vintage furniture pieces from Ruby’s Vintage Rentals. The bride was outfitted in the most stunning boho, lace-sleeve gown from Chantilly Couture, with an intricately braided ponytail and berry-hued makeup by Blo. We can’t get enough of this fall fête!

With another whirlwind bridal fashion week come and gone, we can’t help but to be inspired by all the new trends coming down the pike and into stores before we know it! Fall 2018 proves to have some delightfully fun design elements in store for our brides-to-be, and we took a front row seat to capture all of the magic over on our social media channels! If you missed our live dispatch via Instagram Stories, head over to our Instagram, Facebook and Twitter to catch up on all the latest from some of our favorite designers! As we take a look ahead, we’re seeing design details and full-blown trends that are truly unique to the season; a new must-have color combines ethereal lightness and timeless tradition in a “something blue” powdery, pastel hue. Off shoulder shapes continue to reign, but a little extra pomp, poof and circumstance in the form of shiny silk taffeta sleeves and glittery punk-rock embellishments are giving us full-on late 80’s revival. As the fall season tends to bring a bit of chill to the crisp night air, accessories like delicately beaded caplets and floor-skimming capes of tulle, silk and ample embellishments are proving to be a must-have gown topper to add just a little extra pzazz. As for lengths, hemlines are on the rise with lots of elegant mid and even some sassy mini dresses seen across runways. For the bride who errs on the nontraditional side, jumpsuits were plentiful with options ranging from tailored classic to boho chic and sheer embroidered. For something a bit more conventional but no less fresh, gowns of tulle and organza showed lots of soft, cascading wavy layers for an update to timeless silhouettes. We’ll be eagerly awaiting the arrivals of these new styles at local boutiques Bella Rose BridalJ.J. Kelly Bridal, BeLoved Bridal Boutique, Chantilly Couture, Moliere Bridal HouseMeg Guess Couture Bridal & Boutique, Prescott BridalThe Bridal Boutique and Prim! Cheers for another fab new season!

Bridal Beauty Tips from Hannah Miller Hair & Makeup Artistry

Beauty insight for the big day is on every bride’s mind, so we sat down with Oklahoma wedding hair and makeup artist Hannah Miller to bring you the 411 on the latest bridal beauty tips and trends! Read on for her expert advice to make sure you’re every bit the blushing bride on your wedding day!

Q. What advice do you have for a bride trying to find the right look for her day?
A. My advice is to take a step back from Pinterest and think about what looks make you feel best about yourself. Do you love accentuating your eyes? Do you feel most beautiful with down, flowing hair? If a smoky eye makes you feel weird, it’s not going to be the right choice for you on your wedding day! Once you have an idea of what makes you feel like your best self, go to town pinning all the inspiration!

Q. Do you recommend doing a trial run before the big day?
A. I personally require all my brides to have a trial prior to their wedding day for a number of reasons. It gives us a chance to communicate and find what you are looking for in your look. We get the chance to see how products work (or don’t work) for you, and how we may need to tweak things for the wedding day. It’s also a time to see the whole picture come together and see if it is truly YOU.

Q. What beauty trends do you predict for this Fall/Winter?
A. Skin is in! Beautiful, healthy, glow-from-within skin doesn’t have a season and it never should. Contouring is on it’s way out, and as always, we’ll see deep plum and red lip colors make a reappearance. I’m never mad about that one.

Q. What should a bride do to prepare for her wedding?
A. The best thing you can do is to take care of your skin and drink TONS of water! That glow-from-within really comes from within, and water is the way to get it! Dermaplaning is also a great way to remove dead skin, peach fuzz and dirt from your skin to reveal a perfect wedding day complexion! I also highly recommend consulting with your hair stylist to see if any haircuts/hair extensions would help you achieve your desired hairstyle for your wedding day.

Q. What is the most important beauty and/or hair product every bride should have?
A. As a hair and makeup artist, I do everything in my power to give my brides a look that needs no touch ups throughout the day. But if your crazy uncle drags you onto the dance floor for an hour leaving you a shiny, hot mess, you need some blotting papers, girl. Blotting papers, a little lip gloss, and maybe a mini hairspray to tame those crazy baby hairs, and you’re good to get back out there!

Q. Any other insider tips you have for brides-to-be?
A. My best advice is to feel free to openly communicate with your stylist. Even if you don’t know how to put it into words, let her know that something feels off and she’ll be able to work with you to find out what it is. Also, take a breath and remember that at the end of the day you’ll be going to a really fun party with all your favorite people.
