Fazelli Winery Wedding in Temecula, CA
Our bride Shivi contacted us over a year and a half ago to inquire about getting her hair and makeup done for her wedding! Shivi and her fiance (at the time) Chris had been together for over 6 years and met when Chris was finishing college and Shivi was starting medical school (talk about a stressful time)! These two have gone through so much together including some endless nights working and nights planning their wedding! Finally, in April of this year, they tied the knot: twice!
Shivi and Chris had a traditional Indian wedding as well as a typical American wedding to celebrate the melding of both cultures! She had beautiful golds, pinks, reds, and silver throughout the whole wedding! Fun fact: in Indian culture, black and white are typically colors associated with funerals and are therefore avoided for weddings! For their Indian wedding Shivi dressed in beautiful long, deep red lehenga (traditional Indian attire for the bride) with gold splashes and gold sequins all over. It was one of the prettiest gowns we have ever seen!
To compliment these amazing colors, we went with a brown smokey eye! We, of course, added flecks of gold to her eye look. Shivi wanted a more dramatic look so we pulled out the custom extensions! The extensions create a thicker, fuller look. We pin curled her hair for 4 hours to make sure her hair had the volume she wanted.
For her bridesmaids, they were all dressed in soft pinks with gold. We stuck with a more natural eye with shades of pink and the girls got to choose between a messy updo or to have their hair curled down. We loved that Shivi gave her bridesmaids some freedom to pick what they were going to feel most comfortable with for their hair!
