RA Beauty Bar: An Upscale Beauty Salon in Los Angeles

Ra Beauty Bar Los Angeles


We recently had the pleasure of attending an exclusive wedding planner event hosted by Ra Beauty Bar in West Hollywood in Los Angeles.  This impeccable salon is owned by a trio of inspiring and incredibly talented women–Audrey, Whitney and Kennedy–who lead a team of amazing stylists and artists.  They had quite the amazing day of beauty planned for us!

The morning started with some delicious cocktails and a yummy selection of bite sized brunch treats, provided by the Scrumptious Cafe Bakery.

In between sips and nibbles, we experienced some pretty stellar treatments!  I started off with their exclusive Oil Deep Conditioning Treatment, made with a special blend of oils.  It smelled divine!  Afterwards, I got a blow out by Audrey–my hair had never felt softer.

Next up, I was treated to a delightful experience with a scent specialist from Jo Malone who blended some amazing oils and creams to create a custom lotion for me.  The smell was absolute divine and left my skin so soft and smooth.

Pixar Inspired Styled Wedding Shoot

Up Themed Wedding


For those of you who were big fans of the adorable, emotional animated film “Up” by Pixar, I’ve got some photos that will make your hear melt!  I worked on this styled shoot with the super creative Marie Canieso of Mary Tony Photography back when I was based in New Haven, Connecticut.  We choose Chetstone, a beautiful 19th century Victorian Gothic style home right in New Haven as the perfect location for our real life Ellie & Carl.  For this gorgeous shoot, we played with lots of colors, utilized both the beautiful indoor space to create our reception table and dressed the backyard up as a playful take on an English garden.  And of course the element that ties the theme together– a HUGE bunch of colorful balloons!  Check out our masterpiece below :)
