Torrey Pines Lodge wedding featured in Ceremony Magazine
Torrey Pines Lodge is one of my favorite venues known for it’s historical craftsman style and green setting positioned amongst the Torrey Pines golf course and Pacific ocean coastline. I’m fortunate to be referred to work at this venue several times a year. Upon arriving at the beautiful hotel I’m immediately warmed by the aroma of the outdoor wood-burning fireplace. What a great way to start my day before beautifying a bride for her much anticipated wedding. Photography by Patty Brutlag of Petula Pea Photography
Tatum and Bryan united as a couple in the spring of 2015 on a gorgeous sunny San Diego afternoon. I met with Tatum prior to the wedding to test out her bridal look saving time and worries on the wedding day. She was one of the most unconcerned brides I’ve ever worked with giving me only general direction and then letting me take it from there. As you can tell by the photos she was a natural beauty not requiring my full set of skills.
I feel the most focused and artistic when I know my clients trust my 24+ years of experience knowing the makeup and hair will look great for the cameras as well as in person. This was the freedom I was allowed when I worked with Tatum, her mom, mother-in-law and bridal party. One of those jobs I enjoyed so much I almost felt guilty getting paid for. And because the makeup was airbrushed using my own formula called AirPro Makeup it was able to withstanding the 14 hour activity filled day.
