No lie, I literally made a Sephora run the day before my wedding to find a skin matching foundation. Stressful? You bet. Life changing? Completely. For years I’d been faking an overly tinted face which didn’t necessary match my Irish white skin tone and once I’d found my perfect shade well, it was a total game changer. Which is why we’ve asked TEAM Hair & Makeup, to help you get a jumpstart on finding the perfect foundation color for your skin well before the rehearsal dinner. Press play to learn more!

You know her from roles on our favorite shows like One Tree Hill, Grey’s Anatomy and All My Children, but today Leven Rambin is stepping into the role of bride with a look inside her autumn wedding to Jim Parrack (a.k.a . Hoyt from True Blood.) Taking cues from the venue, Leven and Jim’s planner, Something To Celebrate designed a day infused with European-style elegance and Heather Curiel came on board to capture. Consider your wedding plans infinitely inspired, and pin every bit inside The Vault.
From the Bride, Leven… I really wanted my wedding to have an ethereal, bohemian elegance to it. I was so inspired and elated once I found the venue, Le San Michele in the tiny town of Buda, Texas. Virginia, the owner, has turned her home and property into an adorable, unique, modern shabby church paradise with hints of European elegance. I immediately fell in love with all the lighting fixtures she had in the trees and the Moroccan lamps that scatters the property. The gardens added a romantic feel, too.
I wanted earthy Pastel tones more appropriate for a spring wedding, but I didn’t care! I knew exactly what I wanted down to every detail and my planners and florists nailed it. When I arrived, my breath was taken away at how accurately they were able to make my vision come to life! It was small and intimate and absolutely perfect.
The Karaoke on the back patio after a delicious dinner was SUCH a hit! We sang, danced, and partied until the wee hours! Numerous guests have told me it was the best and most beautiful wedding they’d ever been to, and that it was like a fairytale! And that’s exactly what I was going for, so I’m very happy!

From Caroline Tran Photography…What’s more romantic than a Valentine’s Day wedding? Here, we envisioned a chic city elopement, held at the couple’s loft. The fireplace is decorated simply with pillar candles and brass tapers and serves as the backdrop for the ceremony and first dance. Lush red, with hints of gold and gray, serve as the color scheme. The bride wears an elegant ball gown by Carolina Herrera and carries a lush bouquet with red garden roses, strawberry gomphrena and smoke bush.
For the couple’s celebratory dinner, it’s all about fine dining. Seasonal pomegranates are used both in the floral arrangement, in the cornish hens, and in the elegant arugula salad with pomegranate pearls, all by Mr. & Mrs. Creamery. A bar cart serves double duty as champagne and the cake table.
This editorial was part of a upcoming video photography workshop by Caroline Tran and SLR Lounge. You can see a sneak peek of the video right here. Kelly and Caroline along with Joy Proctor will also be speaking at The Art of Styling Workshop, March 23rd, 2016 in Santa Barbara.
