I wore an oversized hat Michael Costello made, so there was no need to add any other accessories. I really didn’t want to overdo the look; I wanted it to feel classic, timeless, and to have that beautiful Bianca Jagger influence. We were driving a convertible up the coast, so I wrapped my hair in a scarf to avoid it getting messy. I kept a smoothing brush in my bag, and brushed throughout the day.
My Bridal Skin Care Prep: $407
My biggest concerns are acne scars and texture, and I wanted my skin to have a healthy glow and plump finish the day of my wedding. The night before, I self-tanned using St. Tropez Self Tan Purity Water Gel ($44), then rinsed off in the morning and applied Nécessaire The Body Lotion ($25). On my face, I cleansed with Sonya Dakar Silver Clarifying Face Wash ($59), then used Cocokind Rosewater Facial Toner ($17) and Cocokind Glow Essence with Sea Grape Caviar ($18). I applied Biossance Squalane + Marine Algae Eye Cream ($54) and Sonya Dakar Detox Daily Moisturizer ($95), then used the Nurse Jamie NuVibe RX Amethyst Massaging Beauty Tool ($95) to help the products absorb and to lift and tighten my face.
My Bridal Beauty Treatments: free, but would have cost $15,069
I started my treatments about a month in advance; we planned our wedding in about six weeks, so we were rushed and eager to get everything done. A month before my wedding day, I saw Nurse Jamie for Botox and lasers (free, but would have cost $5,000). I usually only get Botox in my jaw for TMJ, but I trust Jamie’s opinion, so we also did my forehead for wedding photos. She also did tightening lasers. I honestly don’t know what they are, I just go in there and let her do her thing! She used her Uplift Massaging Beauty Roller ($69) tool on my face and also gave me one to use on my body, which I did every night leading up to the wedding. You use the roller on your legs and arms with moisturizer for about five minutes in the evenings, and it lifts and tightens your skin. It’s especially great for cellulite and increasing circulation. Then, I saw Sonya Dakar every two weeks for three months leading up to the wedding (free, but would have cost $10,000). Sonya is a legend, and has worked with the most iconic names in Hollywood. She had me on her Beauty Boot Camp treatment—we did her sculpting laser on my face to help my cheeks slim down and add natural contour, as well as her collagen laser. I also did microneedling and a peel with her to prep. I saw amazing results; I felt like I had cheekbones for the first time in my life. Overall, my face had a more lifted appearance and smoother, more even tone and texture.
My Wellness Routine: $1,847
I worked out with Train with Danny ($250 per session, about four sessions) once a week leading up to my wedding, and supplemented with my own gym workouts ($200 per month) in between. We did high intensity interval training together, and on my own I would do similar workouts on the FitOn app or cardio at the gym and Y7 yoga classes ($30 per class, about four classes). I also did two lymphatic massage sessions the week before my wedding with Camila and Lais Perez ($250 per session, two sessions) to get rid of bloat, water weight, and tone my body. I started these massages just for the wedding but am hooked, and have gone regularly since. They are so good for circulation, stiffness, bloating, cellulite, and digestion. I also took daily doses of Olly Undeniable Beauty ($13) and Olly Flawless Complexion gummy vitamins ($14). These really help my skin clear up and my hair grow in thick and shiny.
My Bridal Nails: $100
Since we were eloping, we rushed to make decisions and I left my nails to the last minute. I was hoping my usual nail girl would be available, but she was out of town. I went to a local nail salon in Sherman Oaks called Qtie Nails ($100 for my manicure and pedicure)—the owner there is amazing. I asked for blue marble nails to go with the blue vintage car we were driving. They ended up with more of a tie-dye watercolor vibe, and I was really happy with it. I went for dip powder because I didn’t want to risk anything chipping or getting messed up.
My Bridal Fragrance: $295
I use The Harmonist perfume ($295). It smells warm, musky, and romantic. I opened it especially for my wedding, but loved it so much I’ve been wearing it since.
