Marienna’s San Francisco Zoo Wedding (Giraffes!!!)

Now with wedding season slowing down, I think this is a wonderful time to showcase some of my past stunning clients! Marienna is actually one of my 2013 brides and I had been meaning to share her beautiful wedding photos for awhile now. I was so excited to work with her photographer, Michele Beckwith, again (one of our earlier clients was featured in Green Wedding Shoes) and I was thrilled to see these lovely photos!

For Marienna’s bridal look, I gave her plummy, smokey eyes which really made her eyes pop and complemented them with a soft nude lip. One of my talented hair styling partners, Erika Taniguchi, joined me for this wedding and gave Marienna a very romantic half up, half down hairstyle with soft, loose curls.

The bride’s suite at the Mark Hopkins Intercontinental Hotel in San Francisco provided the most gorgeous backdrop for her getting ready photos… I highly recommend for SF brides! Not only that, Marienna and her husband, Sean, had the amazing treat of getting married at the San Francisco Zoo! How awesome is that? Giraffes at your wedding! So super fun.

I was so happy that the bride loved her look and even left me this super kind review on Yelp:

"Audrey did a great job on makeup for me, my sister, and my mom for my wedding in August. I also hired her for a trial on the day of my engagement photos. I had somewhat contradictory requests for her – I wanted a clean and classic look, while my husband wanted dramatic smokey eyes. Audrey was able to achieve a perfect balance between a timeless look and something that would make him say “wow.”"

Thank you so much, Marienna! It was my pleasure!

Please enjoy these lovely photos from their San Francisco wedding… and yes, I made sure to include the giraffes. (Whee!!!)
