It is always such a treat to partner with vendors who don’t just see weddings as their job, but as a opportunity to be creative and outlet their passion for beauty. House of Flowers is the perfect example of these values! Each event we work with them we get to watch as Diana and Amanda Klawitter set up our clients for a successful, gorgeous night, sure to wow their guests with the beautiful flowers they choose to use. Diana and Amanda also love to create space for others to discover the joy of florals, with the various workshops they host and teach throughout the year, Bakersfield has been gifted with their ability to bring people together to create and imagine!

When choosing your florist, our tip to you is to research, research, research!! Spend time gettting to know your own style and also the style of your florist. A great florist is someone who will spend time asking you questions on how you want your big day to look, and not every florist is the best at every style. Ask about flowers in season – sometimes the look you are going for doesn’t match the date you’ve booked! Allow your florist to guide you through color schemes and hear out their ideas for the season. A good florist is up on the latest trends and has a team that can do anything from small orders to full floral garlands.

Every girl needs their very own glam squad right?! We think so, and Daniella from Split Ends Salon here in Bakersfield is that girl for us! She not only is a professional hair and makeup artist, but she is our friend, and always blows us away with the different looks she puts together. We asked Daniella to come out to our Mama’s Soiree this past May and show off some of her skills as well and give pro tips on what products to use and not use.

It seems like everyone is a makeup artist nowadays – when you are choosing your makeup and hair stylist for your big day, remember that experience is always best. Though you may be surrounded by girls who know alot about doing their own makeup, trust a professional who has worked with all kinds of skin tones in all kinds of climates to make sure your look for your day is not only beautiful for pictures, but will look just as stunning at 9pm that night. Long lastinglooks is greater than coolest new trend.
