We are so in love with Meagan and Brian’s black and white affair at the Bel-Air Bay Club’s Spanish-style mansion. The couple exchanged their vows on the ground’s lush garden in front of a backdrop of hanging strands of crystals and a panoramic view of the Pacific Ocean just beyond the lawn. It was absolutely breathtaking to see the ceremony and reception covered in white roses and glittering candles. The champagne and crystal accents were the finishing touches on giving their guests a beautifully soft, romantic ambiance to help celebrate their special day.

Last August, I confidently vowed to go sans-makeup for the entire month, convinced that I'd reset my skin's balance and come out on the other end looking more luminous than ever. I dubbed it "Au Naturel August" and announced it to the world (okay, maybe just my Facebook friends). The next day I was invited to a party, and lacking the willpower to make my fresh-faced debut, my valiant attempt lasted less than 24 hours.

Yucca Valley was our destination for Fall Winter's editorial spread of the bohemian bride. Located just 20 miles outside of Palm Springs, the high desert's Le Haute Desert Aerie provided a magical backdrop of rocky outcrops and artistic architecture. Chiffon, crystals, and embroidered tulle found the perfect complimentary contrast against the roughness of the desert's elements.
