Dinner parties are our jam, you guys. Especially when they’re as good lookin’ as this one. This dinner party was held to celebrate the launch of Please & Thank You, the brand-new cocktail leg of A MIHO Experience’s catering company. (Yep, that’s right, one of the tastiest SoCal caterers now does yummy drinks too!) The night kicked off with cocktails and tray passed bites from The Vetted Table. There was a mariachi band, a champagne cart service during dinner, and just the right mix of people.

Stephanie + Matthew’s wedding is proof that a country club wedding doesn’t have to feel overly formal or the least bit stuffy. Stephanie says, I wanted my wedding to feel romantic and not grand. I was going for a mix of elegant and rustic. Not that there’s anything wrong with grand, but we totally get where the girl is coming from. And she achieved her ideal romantic look with details like low centerpieces, a pastel palette, and lots of soft, beautiful lighting. Mint Photography was there to capture it all.

Advice from the bride: If possible, hire a coordinator—at least for the day of the wedding! It allows you and your family to enjoy the whole weekend.

I think my favorite moment from the wedding was when my father, my husband, and I were all at the altar. The day before we had all joked about who would cry first. My Dad is a very emotional guy and we thought for sure it would be him. He said all he wanted to do was avoid hysterically crying. Well, I ended up being the first one to lose it as I walked down the aisle—which then lead my father and husband to lose it too. As we all stood at the altar, my Dad then began to hysterically cry, which then made us all burst into laughter.

The bride’s family has a bee farm, so they harvested the honey and bottled it for every guest to take home as a favor. So sweet!

Sure, you know by now: being a bride-to-be comes with a whole lotta prep work. But looking back at all those pics + memories, it’s totally worth every second. And considering your wedding is really one big ‘ol photo op—a gorgeous smile is probably pretty high on that must-have list.

From a pretty pout to a sparkling smile, we thought we’d share some tips for a stunning smile in this fun shoot we whipped up. Read on and try it out for yourself, and don’t forget to add Crest 3D White Whitestrips Luxe Supreme FlexFit to your bridal beauty routine.

Prep your pout. Exfoliate your lips for a smooth basis before color. We chose The Lip Scrub in Vanilla Bean.

Get gorgeous color. While you may want to stick with a soft lip color on your big day, it’s handy to have a bold shade or two for all those fun events leading up to the wedding itself. This shoot was so bright + cheerful we just had to find lip colors that would pop. Lime Crimes Countessa Florescent + Lime Crime Velvetines in Suede Berry did the trick.

Seal the deal. Who can live without lip balm? Find an intensely hydrating balm like Tatcha GOLD Camellia Nourishing Lip Balm to give lips a little TLC before, during, and post-wedding.
