A View of San Diego | Wedding at The University Club | February 22, 2013

By, February 22, 2013

For our Photo of the Week, we bring you this gorgeous overhead image of San Diego. It was captured at Lindsey and Case’s wedding at The Univeristy Club. Fun fact: The University Club sits in the penthouse of San Diego’s second-tallest skyscraper, Symphony Towers, which is just a foot shorter than the One America Plaza building!

This photo captures many iconic San Diego landmarks, including the Bay, the Coronado Bridge and the white “sails” of the Convention Center.  If you look closely, you can see the hills of Tijuana, Mexico along the horizon, and the dome of the future (currently under construction) new Central Library.

Down the center of the photo is 8th Avenue, which takes your eye straight to home plate at Petco Park. And directly in front of the Symphony Towers, you can see the CHASE Bank building, home to San Diego’s Exquisite Weddings Magazine! What other San Diego landmarks can you spot in this photo?

Wedding Airbrush Makeup and Couture Hair Artistry with Brides by Brittany

By, August 07, 2012

At Brides By Brittany, we provide full beauty coordination exclusively to each of our brides. From custom hair design, to advanced makeup techniques, we bring our bride’s visions to life. Our goal is to make every bride feel fully pampered and relaxed on her big day!

Recently, we were honored to doll up Elyse and her bridal party for her wedding at The University Club atop Symphony Towers!  Elyse’s vision for her wedding day look was flawless, classic elegance with a modern edge — which comes across beautifully in this photo!

After meeting with Elyse and talking over ideas for her hair and makeup, we decided on Airbrush Makeup to create a flawless look that would last all day and night.

Elyse wanted a classic, romantic look with a modern edge. To achieve this style, we chose a gorgeous earth-tone palate for Elyse’s soft and sexy smoky eyes.  A soft glow and a glossy pout finished off the perfect look!

To keep the theme for her hair style, we created a vintage-meets-modern up-do, with deconstructed, soft waves. The hairstyle really framed her gorgeous face, and paired wonderfully with her dress!
