March, 2019 - Issue #174

When personal brands have become as popular as corporate versions, you know it's especially important to pay attention to trending design for what is usually the signature event of our lives: the wedding. Here, Santa Clarita's most influential vendors share what's dominating their fields.

For Her
AR Workshop lets you bring food and drink into your crafting sessions, which can be booked for parties large and small. You and your crew will create Pinterest-worthy home decor while bonding over paint choices, stencil options and stories intimately shared at your oversized tool-topped table. It's fun, it's relaxing and it leaves each guest with their own handmade party favor. You can choose from options starting at under $40, or pick our new faves: the ladder blanket display or AR's madly-popular chunky blanket.

For Him
They can throw 'em back while throwing sacks, cornhole style, at Wolf Creek Brewery. This place has everything you'd want for a stag party - craft beer, catering from sister restaurant Wolf Creek Restaurant & Brewing Co., indoor/outdoor space, an opportunity to see where the hop-heavy magic happens and so much more. Private events are available, or schedule your informal group hang on a night when a portion of the proceeds goes to a local nonprofit to really make your event a testament to community and friendship.

Daring pairings, bold colors, mixed palettes and big blooms will mark 2019 wedding and events as couples and planners alike rediscover an elegant middle ground for design.

For Blondes
Go for... golden 'lights, opting for a shadow at the roots so that it's slightly darker than the ends. That'll allow you to get longer wear from your new hair.

For Brunettes
Go for... heavy metal. Copper highlights look bold, not brassy, when you ask your stylist for "pieceier" chunks.

For Noirettes
Go for... jet black. Raven-haired beauties benefit from the rich, luxe look of deep, dark, shiny strands.

Whatever color treatment you choose, take care of it with EVER. EVER Recovery oil combines rich marula oil, sustainably-derived squalane and rare crambe abyssinica to create an ultra-luxurious oil with the ability to penetrate the hair to seal, coat and smooth the cuticle, repair split ends, deliver nutrients to repair damage, protect from color degredation, increase elasticity, reduce thermal damage and enhance shine.

Give your guests a garden with florals that are full of texture and gorgeous shades of green. We can't get enough of round and octagon arches, which make for the prettiest photographs. Pair them with terrarium centerpieces that introduce organic elements in an exciting new way.
