Deciding on the perfect hairstyle for your wedding day can be a challenge. You’ll want to find something that feels comfortable, looks beautiful, photographs well, and speaks to the style of your wedding. A black tie affair may call for an elegant up-do, while a casual beach wedding evokes visions of romantic, tousled curls. With so many options, it can be overwhelming for a bride. Below are some of our favorite trends from this season. Which do you like best?
The Ballerina Bun
This is a trend we are seeing everywhere right now. It’s an elegant and timeless look – a great choice for the bride who wants to dance the night away without a hair falling out of place.
The braid is making a big comeback this summer, thanks in part to designers like Monique Lhuillier and Marchesa showcasing them in runway shows. There are so many styles to choose from with braids, from sophisticated to bohemian, you can definitely find a unique look to compliment your dress.
This trend is ideal for a beach wedding – intentionally unkempt yet still sexy and glamorous – but we think it’s beautiful in any setting. Pin on a flower or add a jeweled barrette for an extra special touch.
Headpieces are an easy way to make a fashion statement. With hundreds of options available, there is truly something for everyone. From sparkly tiaras to floral wreaths, headpieces are a great way show your individual style and personality.

Who needs a destination wedding in Hawaii when you could bring the sea to you? Having lived so close to the coast in southern California, Wonhee and Sungmin have always wanted to go sailing. Their wedding was at the Hotel Maya in Long Beach, across from the gorgeous harbor of Long Beach. The inspiration board allowed for this nautical themed wedding to be unique, fun, and elegant as we had a chance to play with the dessert bar by incorporating cute donut lifesavers!
At the ceremony, ropes resembling those of boats, lined the aisle and were incorporated in the brides bouquet. The bride and groom had their very own personalized stationary with an anchor design as well as custom linens and napkins. The ring pillow had an anchor design as well. We got creative with the bride and groom sign using the nautical inspiration and created the captain and first mate sign! The personalized dance floor monogram was an eye catcher for all of the guests.
With a breathtaking view of the Pacific Ocean and the wedding’s beautiful light blue, navy, light grey and soft butter details, Wonhee and Sungmin invited their guests to come sail away with them on their next journey together. Studio EMP did a fabulous job with the photography at the wedding!
A melodious wedding in a timeless venue, Tina and Jonathan were the sweetest couple with unique ideas for their special day. We invested 10 months planning this wedding, all beginning with the couple’s engagement session. The ceremony was held at the Vibiana in Downtown Los Angeles. The formal Cathedral of St. Vibiana dates back to 1876. The cathedral is modeled after the Italian Baroque style, that is dramatic yet tasteful. Key elements to this wedding design were pieces of sheet music used in several different ways. The addition of candle light during the reception added warmth to the white floral and the venue itself. One of our favorite elements was designing and styling the dessert table on the vintage piano and vintage furniture. A special thank you to Callaway Gable for the amazing photographs!
