10/15/2016: Daniella & Matt @ Windmill Winery

As wedding stylist we really don’t step out to anything other than behind the scenes, but in all honesty those behind the scene moment are so crucial. It’s really ¬†important that the bride and her wedding party look their best. We recently had such a great time doing Daniella’s wedding at the Windmill Winery. Our stylist Amanda, Rachel, Sam, Alyssa, and Kedisha we’re total rockstars! Click more to see how the look came all together.¬†0d8a9982

Romance, Class and Hints of Spanish Influence Styled Shoot

Here at Babydoll Weddings the work and play never stop! Among the busy wedding season we were invited to participate in a gown shoot for Arizona Weddings’ newest issue (on news stands). It was a treat to be able to work some of the best wedding professionals in the industry as well as being able to have fun with them at the drop party a few weeks later. We are so excited to feature some of our favorites from that shoot and being able to show off the marvelous work of our artists and of those of all the vendors that were a part of the team.

With inspiration taken from the Spanish Colonial mixed with soft pinks and greens and a touch of some classic elements made this styled shoot a joy to be a part of. If you are a bride with more of a classic taste but still wanting a touch of bright colors or is wanting more of subtle details than you will be in love with everything about this shoot!

{Bridal Portrait} Toni

We have come to the final bride in the Babydoll Weddings Winter/Spring Bridal Portrait Series.  Today we are featuring the beautiful Toni, and her two different, yet stunning, bridal looks.  Babydoll Weddings Lead Stylist Micky did the hair & makeup for Toni and we just love the contrasting styles seen here.

Micky describes a bit about her time with Toni:
Toni’s first look: Toni wanted a little volume to her hair, so I decided to add a bump to the top portion of her hair while still showing off her hair length with some big curls. We wanted to show off the detailing in her dress so we kept her hair off of her shoulders as much as possible. Keeping her makeup more natural we used a variation of pinks and light browns and as for her lips I used a glossy medium pink.

Toni’s second look: This dress has so much to say just on its own that we wanted Toni to make her own statement too. We did a darker smoky eye with red lips to pull some of the attention to her! We had some great fun with her hair! We incorporated a couple of braids and lots fun intricate details.

{Bridal Portraits} Laurie

In this week’s Bridal Portrait Series, we are featuring our brown eyed girl Bride Laurie.  Laurie is seen wearing a sweet lacey gown with simple accessories, including some fun lace-boots, perfect for a country chic wedding.
Babydoll Weddings Lead Stylist Micky shares with us how Laurie’s makeup look came to be:
Laurie was looking for a natural smoky eye, so I decided to use a variation of browns from light to dark to help enhance her beautiful big eyes. I wanted to keep her lipstick natural as well but added a little more of a darker pink to give her some color.

{Bridal Portraits} Sabrina

Our Bridal Portrait Series continues this week as Babydoll Weddings Owner & Lead Stylist Sabrina shares with us how she gave gorgeous bride Sabrina (yup, Sabrina meet Sabrina!) two looks as different, and as mesmerizing, as day and night. 

Sabrina’s first look: I really wanted to show off Sabrina’s long healthy hair so we decided to leave it down with soft curls. This dress was perfect with her skin tone so I kept the makeup very soft and natural so the dress would still accent her skin tone and not let the makeup over power.

Sabrina’s second look: It was time to have some fun! With a dress like this I had to make sure she was wearing the dress and not the other way around. Playing up the fun peacock colors in her eye shadows and adding two layers of false eyelashes matched the drama of the dress. Since the dress had so much texture I wanted to match that with the hair so I created texture by doing a fish tail braid instead of just a regular three strand braid. She worked it!

{Bridal Portraits} Hailey

The next bride to share with you in our Bridal Portrait Series is our beautiful bride Hailey. Babydoll Weddings Lead Stylist Micky shares with us a bit about the looks and styling she chose for Hailey’s session:

Hailey’s first look: The dress was so beautiful and intricate that I wanted to show off the dress as well as give Hailey a classic look. So I did a variation of a braid on the backside of her head and manipulated it to look like multiple braids. As for her makeup, again I wanted to keep it classic so I went with natural colors with a bit of plum to enhance her beautiful green eyes.

Hailey’s second look: To show off Hailey’s gorgeous long hair, I decided to go with a half up half down hairstyle with side swept bangs and beautiful curls. To help accent the dress I added turquoise jewelry and some dimension into her eye makeup. Adding these features created a great look for her outdoor pictures.

Hailey’s third look: This dress had Hailey’s name written all over it! It had lots of attitude and flare. With all the sparkle on the dress I kept her makeup a bit more matte but couldn’t help but add a hint of blue shadow to her smoky eye to tie everything together. As for her hair, a fun and messy updo was in order!
