It’s the first day of 2021 and we figured we would start it off right with a post. We love seeing new trends surface in wedding style. One of our favorites to rise in popularity is the boho wedding. A style that’s a little less formal than a traditional but still full of beauty.
Our bride Riley had a stunning boho wedding here in Asheville, NC. She wanted a bohemian theme and it all started with this dress. The dress belonging to her mother was worn in her wedding in the 70’s and was passed down to Riley for this beautiful occasion. Flowing with vintage tiered lace and off the shoulder detail, this dress is boho magic and inspired so many beautiful details for the day.
Hair and Makeup
The hair and makeup for Riley’s wedding was glamorous yet effortless. Riley really enjoyed wearing makeup and wanted to focus on her eyes. We chose a warm smoky eye, with subtle contour to the face and a neutral pink lip. Hair was soft and beautiful, pulling half the hair back with loose waves and a fishtail braid.
Earthy, Ethereal and Elegant
In the end all the elements came together in a beautiful ceremony at the Buck Springs Gap overlook. One of my favorite elements was the rug which Riley found while traveling and used to inspire the color palette for her floral and bridesmaid’s dresses .

Bridal Styled Shoot
We recently worked with some of our favorite wedding vendors. On this bridal styled shoot. Co-owner Kristen Calloway was on makeup. The look was classic beauty with a bold lip. The colors pulled the deep tones of fall but still had a bright bridal feel. Fall and winter weddings are a great time to use deeper colors as a contrast to the sometimes moody dark tones of the season.

Natural bridal beauty is a common request from our clients and we are happy to provide. We love to create dramatic and glamorous makeup looks but that is not always what makes every client the most comfortable. When deciding on what type of makeup application we are going to provide for our clients a good place to begin is with a natural makeup.
The Natural Makeup
The natural makeup is an excellent place to start when deciding on a look for your wedding day. Natural makeup begins by slightly enhancing your fresh face. The makeup featured above starts with a sheer to medium coverage foundation that resembles the natural skin. We used MAC Face and Body foundation with MAC skin perfecting powder to set. We added a pale pink blush and lip slightly deeper than the natural lip and cheek. Eyes were enhanced with neutral brown shadows and black mascara. Finally we filled in the brows with powder that compliments the hair, this frames the eyes and finish the look. This is just enough makeup for a natural beauty and a great place to start for someone who may want to go more dramatic because it is so easy to build upon.
The Styled Shoot
The styled shoot was created by an incredible team of wedding vendors here in Asheville, NC. The dress was designed by Angela Kim Couture. Angela asked for the makeup to be soft and romantic, natural but enhanced and this is what we came up with. Natural bridal beauty. The shoot was featured in the Asheville Wedding Guide, where you can see other stunning details and vendor offerings. Photo by Jennifer Callahan Photography makeup by Doll Box Beauty
