It has been way too long since we have posted! We wanted to give you a taste of our style and look. Of course, we are versatile and willing to try most things, but everyone has a preferred style. We love earthy and easy looks that aren’t overworked. We want to make your beauty look effortless yet still elegant and polished. Formal looks have come a long way in the last few years. Slicked back, tight and ribbony curls are a thing of the past. These newer styles compliment the floral trends of wild flower looks and vintage style dresses. Less shine, more sparkle. Less structured dresses with more flow and texture. Here are a few examples of looks we have done. All different, but equally as elegant. A little something for everyone.

Zoe and Ben

What a sweet bride and wedding this was! Zoe and her girls were lovely and so fun to work with! We loved how clean and organic Zoe was, showing how you can truly be yourself on your wedding but be stunning at the same time. Zoe had airbrush foundation without hiding her cute freckles, makeup isn’t meant to hide the great things about you, but only enhance your natural beauty. The wonderful Deidre lynn photography took her pics and we cant say enough good things about her! Enjoy!

Sara and Josh

Is it bad to show favorites for weddings? (Lets be honest, they are all our favorites) Sara Sue is one of my long time friends and I got to be a bridesmaid in her cute, rustic, cotton filled, precious wedding! Sara looked effortlessly beautiful on her day and the rain didn’t stop her from wearing her hair down and having a beautiful, outside ceremony.

Thank you to Adam and Eve Photography for these fabulous pictures! They are stationed in Colorado, but have no fear they love to come do weddings here, so check them out!

My little boy, Rio, as ringbearer getting his first smooch!)

Have we mentioned enough how we love Pam Cooley Photography? I had to share these photos of Katie (and her handsome hubby). She is not only one of our talented team members, but one of the hardworking owners of Loft Bridal. She does so much behind the scenes to keep this business thriving (and isn’t she super pretty too?!) Thank you also to Pam Cooley for believing in our team from the start! We have loved networking with Pam. We love her sweet spirit and her amazing photography skills! Find a link to Pam Cooley on our vendors page.

We can’t say enough how much we loved being apart of this wedding! When we say the Lord blesses us with great brides and bridal parties, we mean it! Laura was one of a kind with the details of her wedding! She didn’t take one moment for granted when spending her morning getting ready with her family and bridemaids. She beamed with joy and appreciation all morning and we were fortunate to witness it! We loved the colors and textures of this wedding and loved the soft, romantic hair Laura wanted for all her girls. Laura was blessed with a head full of GORGEOUS curls and we effortlessly softened the curls and pinned them into a lasting style for her summer wedding!

Thank you Laura for having Loft Bridal be apart of your wedding! We wish you and mark the world!

This sweet bride is a client to the Loft Salon and we have to say we love her! I am just floored over her beautiful wedding photos by Deidre Lynn Photography (you can find her on your loved vendors page). Kaley had a couple hair trials to figure out exactly what she wanted to do on her big day, i think this style suited her so well and allowed her to enjoy her day and not worry about her hair. Kaley and Josh, the girls from Loft Bridal wish you the best! We also owe a shout out to kortnie with b.loved stylists for the beautiful makeup.

We were approached by Kira Kwon Photojournalism to be apart of an after session for a new bride, Amy. An after session is such a fun opportunity to get to wear your dress again, maybe do your hair and makeup a little differently than on your wedding and have photos from a different season! Enjoy and check out miss Kira’s website!

This was an exciting shoot to be a part of! The theme was “Emerald” so there were many different shades of green featured. The first look is a little more traditional. The dresses were sleek and paired with high pony tails, curled and pinned to keep nice full volume. The bridesmaid dresses were provided by Cloud Nine.

The second look is a different take on “green”, more of an earth friendly theme. Our Bohemian Chic model has a bouquet from Heaven on Earth that has no fresh flowers. This bouquet is a great idea for extreme temperatures, it will last all day and you’ll have something you can keep forever. Now, the dress… as soon as we walked into Adore we fell in love with this dress! We hoped that someday we would see it at a style session. The handkerchief skirt is light and breezy and it is a great choice for those of us who would choose a little less sparkle. The skirt moves beautifully with a little air movement! So pretty for pictures! The model’s hair was in a high bun for the 1st look and we decided this dress needed something different. So, at the last minute, we took down the bun, threw a couple curls in and with some improvising we fashioned a head band out of the ribbon from another dress!

A quick thanks (from all of us) to:

  • Heaven on Earth for lending us their beautiful space and creating such great tables and arrangements
  • Lisa from Happily Ever After weddings for styling the tables along with HOE
  • Adore Bridal, thanks for bringing your gorgeous gowns!
  • Pam Cooley, for capturing it all in beautiful pictures!

 

 

 

 

Bridal Bash 2013

We had the opportunity to have a booth at the Bridal Bash January 25th and 26th at the Embassy Suites. The Bridal Bash was a great way to get to know vendors from hair and makeup, photographers, DJ’s, Caterers, and more. We were right next to Adore Bridal & Specialty. They had 3 models in AMAZING gowns and we were  fortunate to have done their hair and makeup. The Bridal Bash was such a fun and exciting 2 days for us.We got to do a lot of hair and airbrush makeup demos on brides who were walking by to give everyone a taste of what we can help achieve for a bride and her bridal party’s big day. We got to meet some amazing brides who booked with us for this upcoming wedding season. We are so excited and thankful to be able to do hair and makeup for each of you beautiful brides and your bridal party.  We are here to make your day relaxing and enjoyable.

 

Thank you to every bride who stopped by our booth!
