Rich colors, unique florals, mild weather, Bridal Makeup & Hair that lasts all day! What’s not to love about a Winter wedding? Winter weddings are magical even without the snow. As a Hairstylist/Makeup Artist in San Diego I’m used to fighting the humidity and heat during the summer months. So when Winter comes around, it’s a nice change. Usually a top concern from my clients is whether their Bridal Hair & Makeup is going to hold up throughout the night. During the Winter months it will last well into the early morning hours! A great benefit of a Winter wedding in San Diego.

The beautiful bride pictured opted to go with a natural lip but a deep red or dark burgundy would have worked really nicely with the overall Winter wedding scheme.

San Diego is the 2nd most popular wedding destination in the country and it’s no wonder with the beautiful weather we have year round. However, when it comes to planning a wedding, most blushing brides have springtime on their mind for their upcoming nuptials. Springtime is classic, romantic, and every bride’s fantasy but what about Winter? What about Fall? September & October in San Diego have undoubtedly gained popularity as THE month to get married, even rivaling May/July. I believe that the weather is more predictable in San Diego between August-December and can account for the increase in popularity. Something to think about when inquiring about vendor availability!

The gorgeous couple pictured are Brittany & Joseph who got married at SLR Farm in Fallbrook, CA on November 14, 2015.
