There is nothing like a seriously awesome image to start out a wedding here it is – it looks like something that was torn from the pages of French Vogue or something. Amazing.

Daniel and I were thrilled to be a part of Dana and Richard’s wedding at South Seas on Captiva Island. The great thing about South Seas is that you feel like you are totally in a different country – and let me tell you it is way out there drive wise for us – and TOTALLY worth the trip.

The great thing about Dana was that she was seriously up for anything and she was not a “typical” bride by any stretch of the imagination. First off, her dress was an refreshingly modern dusty blush pink (see photos below) made out of the most amazing satin I have ever felt. The dress fit her like a glove and then some – I really wish I knew who the designer was on this dress. If anyone knows – please leave it in the comments section, I would really appreciate it!

Let’s talk about “the look” for Dana. Super chic and super sleek with a banging smoky eye for days. Dana did not want curls in her hair for her wedding – it just was not her – so Dana and Daniel decided to bust out a modern twist on a retro bun. It was a total success. This style creates the most amazing silhouette, photographs like a dream, and requires MINIMAL touchups . I swear a hurricane could have happened and that hair was not going anywhere. As always for the makeup I kept the skin very clean and glowing – almost as if I did not put any foundation on her in the first place. The clean skin was then juxtaposed with the beautiful silvery grey smokey eye that really showed off her eye color. I blended the silvery smoke out with taupes and purple based browns that really made her green eyes “pop”.
