Spotlight wedding: Chriselle Lim

Today's spotlight wedding is yet another social media/ YouTube star.
Chriselle Lim had a gorgeous outdoor wedding at Greystone Manison
located in Beverly Hills, CA.

Her stunning four tier wedding cake stood beside gold decorated 
cake pops and french macaroons for a gorgeous display.

If you followed her wedding series, you'd know that her wedding dress was
custom made. Gorgeous sweetheart neckline with lace details and no back, it is
one of my favorite wedding dresses!


She also posted a video of the big day on her channel. Here's the link:

Trending Tuesday: Strobing

One trend that you Bridal Beauties might have heard about is Strobing. Contrary to it's sister, contouring, Strobing works with the high points of your face to define it instead of the shadows and contours. If you love a glowy look, you might want to try this trend for your big day! There are multiple tutorials on YouTube but here is a picture below.

One of my favorite highlighters is the Tarte Skin Twinkle Lighting Palette $42

Comment below if you would try Strobing for your big day!

Spotlight Wedding

One gorgeous wedding I have to mention is YouTuber Aspyn Ovard's wedding. Held last year in the beautiful state of Utah, Aspyn and her long term boyfriend Parker Ferris had a October wedding. Although it's summer, her wedding was just too beautiful I had to share. 

They had an outdoor ceremony and reception filled with cute bohemian details that included a dream catcher at their alter. 

Aspyn's dress is the Penelope Gown from BHLN retailing at $970 which she paired with a flower crown. 


Even though her viewers couldn't be there, they could watch Aspyn's dreamy boho wedding on her YouTube channel.

Out West

DC has been pretty depressing lately with all the snow and cold weather...we are dreaming of an escape to somewhere warm, and it might not be where you think! If you're looking for a unique destination wedding location, consider options beyond beaches.

The West, with all its natural wonders and warm weather is the perfect place, especially if you're looking for nature to handle most of the scenery for you.

From state logo invitations to cactus cakes, it's easy to add themed pieces to your wedding.

If you love an outdoor ceremony and reception, the view is breathtaking.

And did we mention sunsets make the most perfect backdrop for pictures?
