GAMINE GLAMOUR
This flirtatious fishnet veil sets off a messy ponytail. HOW TO: Start with a middle part and tease hair gently.

Spray generously with a brushable hairspray like L’Oreal Elnett Satin Extra Strong Hold Hair Spray ($15, Ulta).

BELLA LUNA FARMS
Bella Luna Farm, located just north of Seattle, feels lush and inviting, and serves as a beautiful working farm with over 40 years invested. Organic strawberries lace through rose bushes surrounding hand-crafted stone cottages reminiscent of Sleeping Beauty. Covering 12 acres, post-ceremony sun can be caught streaming through the lattice windows in the reception space. Tranquil and lovely, the property is described as “beloved;” the perfect feeling for a wedding day.
