Luxe Bride: Melissa (Burke) Brown

A Little Romance …


















We at Luxe love nothing more than to see one of our cherished clients find the man of her dreams and get married! It makes us downright dewy eyed to be able to help a Bride look and feel her absolute best in her photos, as well as to her guests, on such an important day! That’s why when client Melissa Burke (now Brown!) came to Wedding Team Leader Danielle Arias Jones to plan her Bridal hair and makeup appointments for her wedding to Thomas Brown, Danielle was thrilled to assist! Melissa has gorgeous thick hair that was best shown off down to compliment her strapless gown and the romantic setting of her event. Luxe Makeup Artist, Christine Geranen, applied faux lashes to make Melissa’s baby blues pop even more, and chose to use shades of pink (Melissa’s favorite color!) to highlight her features and blend nicely with the various shades of roses chosen by her florist. The result? Breathtaking! Here are some more of the details and advice for the newly engaged and beautiful photos courtesy of OGrace Photograhy (602-881-3383 or

Bride & Groom: Melissa & Thomas Brown

Wedding Date: Jan. 14th, 2012

Wedding Venue: Villa Siena, Gilbert, AZ

Bride’s Hair Products and Technique: Melissa’s Special Occasion Thermal Style was done by Danielle Arias Jones, Bridal Team Leader, who used Moroccan Oil and Bumble Products to achieve Melissa’s beautiful, relaxed spiral curls and teased crown. The style complimented her gown, as well as the romantic setting of her wedding.

Bride’s Makeup & Lashes Products: Christine Geranen, Makeup Artist, who used Luxe by Coastal Scents Makeup (available at Luxe Salon and Spa) and MAC Products.

Speical touches we loved: We loved the little touches that Melissa and Thomas chose: The Bling B on their cake, the photo booth and vintage-looking strips of photos for scrap booking, the black damask and hot pink theme was romantic, yet modern and perfectly suited the venue and event! We love that Pink is Melissa’ favorite!

Why did you choose the venue? “The setting is so romantic and beautiful that very little needed to be done to be ready for our event,” explains Melissa. Makes sense to us and we love the way they choose to use their resources, as we mentioned.

What advice do you have for other brides-to-be? “The best choice I made was to have professionals do my hair and makeup. Since we had a trial I knew exactly what what I would look like for the event and so I could really relax and enjoy my time instead of worrying about having to be ready. It was worth every penny!”
