We were so thrilled to provide our services for Kiley’s remarkable wedding at Cielo Farms in Malibu, CA. Our lead artist Sarah did airbrush makeup complete with warm, soft tones and bold lashes while Paulina, Magali, Ali and Jamie helped glamorize the whole bridal party!

These stunning photos capture this natural beauty and her love story so perfectly. Looking back, we’re still smiling at how the happy couple was celebrated surrounded by such a dreamy setting. To help you with your future planning, we asked Kiley to share some tips and memories of the day below!

What was your favorite part about your wedding day: Our favorite part of our wedding day was having all of our favorite people in one place.
What was your husbands reaction when he first saw you:  My husband had a huge grin when he saw me.
How was your experience with Veil Of Grace My experience with Veil of Grace leading up to the wedding and on the day of the wedding was incredible.  Sydney made the wedding process feel so easy… she made a flawless schedule and I felt so confident that we would be on time.  All seven of my bridesmaids and the two moms loved their hair and make-up!! Seriously, there wasn’t one person who wasn’t happy with their service.  We also had so much fun time getting ready with Sarah, Paulina, Magali, Jamie, and Ali!!  
What tips would you give our future brides about makeup and hair – Do a trial run and be honest during the trial about what you would like to change.

15 Jan A Dream Come True: Boho Chic Beauty Marries at Newhall Mansion

Veil of Grace founder, Samantha, made Kristen more stunning than ever for her wedding at the Newhall Mansion using sparkling gold shadow and bold liner. This glowing bride was truly a dream to work with. Her vivid smile and natural beauty were so easy to highlight, while her love for professional baseball player of the Los Angeles Dodgers, Scott Alexander, filled the day with that fairytale feeling of happily ever after.

To complete her elegant look we framed her face with loose curls and pinned the rest into a low chignon wrapped in delicate baby’s breath. The epitome of boho-chic, Kristen wowed us all as soon as she stepped into her fitted lace gown. And the rest isn’t history, but rather the beginning of this perfect couple’s story. One we’ll remember being a part of, always.

03 Jan McCormick Ranch Wedding

We absolutely loved being a part of Allison’s wedding at the beautiful McCormick Ranch in Camarillo! Take a look at these beautiful behind the scenes photos of her bridal prep and wedding details! Our lead artist Ali did Allison’s bridal airbrush makeup. Our Veil Of Grace Beauty Team also dolled up her bridal party’s makeup and hair.

How did me and my husband meet?
-We met through a mutual friend in high school. Although we went to rival high schools in Santa Clarita, me (Valencia) and Loy (Hart) knew from the moment we started dating this was going to be something special! After countless high school dances, graduations, college, and the start of “adulting,” we decided to tie the knot almost 8 years later!
 
How did he propose?
-Although I find out everything, and I mean EVERYTHING Loy tries to hide from me, he completely surprised me! He asked a family friend to take some picutres of us at Bridgeport Lake (where we had taken so many high school dance pictures)! He told me it was for the friend’s portfolio, and I still can’t believe I believed him! On the day he popped the question, I asked, “are you sure you aren’t going to propose?,” Loy denied it and I fell for it AGAIN! With the perfect lighting and not another soul around, he got down on one knee and said some nice things that neither one of us can remember and I of course said YES! After we went straight to one of our favorite restaurants  Wolf Creek and both of our entire families were there! Although his immediate family knew it was going to happen, only my parents on my side knew, so it was so fun surprising my whole family!
 
How did you come to find Veil of Grace?
-I met Sam at the Wolf Creek Brewery Wedding event. One of my best friends Anna had Sam as a hairdresser and raved about her talent. Her team’s pictures online and social media of their past work completely sold me. 
 
What was the favorite part about your wedding day?
-My favorite part of my day, besides feeling completely beautiful was being married by the same person that married my parents over 25 years ago. To have all of his marriage advice, guidance and blessings on our favorite day was amazing. Also, it rained briefly when  everyone was on our dance floor,  and everyone stayed dancing… that was SO cool!!
 
How was your experience with Veil of Grace?
-My experience with VOG was 100% amazing. The team showed up on time and were able to get through my 8 bridesmaids, 2 aunts, 2 moms, and 1 grandma all within a matter of hours, and everyone looked perfect. It was great to have a full schedule weeks before so that there were no questions about who was getting what done and at what time. It allowed the day to run so smoothly. I even had some bridesmaids add some additional services and the team was able to accommodate that without any problems. 
 
What tips would you tell future Brides about makeup and hair?
-To the future brides, remember it is your one day to feel your most beautiful and have 1,000,000 pictures to look back  on. Pick makeup and hair that doesn’t require any thinking on your special day, you’ll have a few other things on your mind! VOG allowed every moment of my getting ready experience to run seamlessly. And I felt completely gorgeous beyond my grand exit!
 
What was your husband’s reaction when he first saw you?
-Oh husband!!! That  is still so fun to hear!!!! His reaction was instant tears, along with every other groomsman!!! A bride’s true dream 🙂
