After seeing this inspiration shoot by To La Lune Events, you’ll prob want to plan a Mediterranean getaway ASAP. But actually, these tropical vibes, lush florals, and exotic birds (!!!), were set up right here in SoCal at Rancho Valencia, a San Diego County venue with 45 acres of gardens, architecture, and details.

Thanks to photog Diana McGregor for taking us away today…

From To La Lune: Imagine a bride who just returned from a trip around the world. She is effortlessly refreshed, relaxed, and has a sweet spot for all things bright, textured, & unique… paired with that perfect exotic touch, of course! This vibrant vision inspired us to create this gorgeous shoot, and we fell in love with the idea of incorporating all of these elements into her big day. As a gift to her guests, we visually transported them to the look & feel of a far away land, right in a heart of San Diego County.

Unique braided bridal hairstyle ideas | Hair and makeup by Janet Miranda | Photos by Betsi Ewing | Read more - http://www.100layercake.com/blog/?p=75600

Remember earlier this month when hair +makeup pro Janet Miranda of BE.NYLA shared her secrets in this bridal hair how-to? We were pretty smitten with the results, so you can imagine how delighted we were to discover that she has a few more tricks up her sleeve. This time involving, big, beautiful, totally unique braids. And who doesn’t love a good braid or two (or three)? Now it’s just a matter of choosing the best one for a pretty white dress.

Thanks to Betsi Ewing for the lovely photos below…

Twisted Braid Updo

For this style, Janet pulled the hair into a loose two-stranded twist. She then rolled the hair upward and pinned into place.

Twisted Fishtail Braid

For this braid, Janet brushed the hair back, then started a lower braid. Leaving a portion of hair out of each side, she created a fishtail braid down to the bottom. Next, she wrapped the outside strands around the braid. Janet tied it off with elastic at the bottom, then wrapped a bit of hair around to hide the tie. To create the messy look, gently pull at each part of the braid and spray to keep in place.

Romantic Side Braid with Bun

For this look, a loose French braid was created at the side and down the hair. The remaining hair was gathered into a twisted bun with curled pieces of hair, and pinned into place.

Oh, boho. One of the zillion reasons we love this free-spirited theme is that the possibilities are endless. Wanna look like you stepped out of a Free People catalog? Totally. Into a muted color palette? For sure.

They’re all amaze, but we must say, this earthy, eclectic shoot styled by Asha Hickerson + Reeda Gorham takes boho to the next level. Thanks to Mirelle Carmichael Photography for the photos below…

The ceremony in the trees was centered around a giant dreamcatcher of lace, feathers, crystals and beads designed by Asha Hickerson. Crystals and incense graced the offering table and the bride and groom sat on a giant fur rug surrounded by horns and a decorated cow skull.
