Our latest Photoshoot!

We just finished our latest ad campaign photo shoot and wow, did it turn out great! Our beautiful model, Ellen, really stole the show. Well in addition to the jewelry of course. ;) And on the other hand, she couldn't have looked so haute if it weren't for the fabulous Maria from Professional Makeup Artistry. Maria did such a great job and we were able to create many looks with Ellen from 50's Glam to Rocker Chic! Lastly, but certainly not least, Jen of Jennifer Skog photography is one of the most amazing (and super cool!) photographers I've ever worked with. I am fascinated by photography (ask Jen- I brought my camera along too and she was giving me tips!) We both decided in our next lives that she'd be the jewelry designer and I'd be the photographer. I like it! Make sure to check out Jen and Maria's websites. They are both the top make up artists and photographers in the Bay. In addition to your wedding, they've collaborated together on a Boudoir project. You have got to see these photos! http://www.jenniferskog.com/boudoir/
They are STUNNING!!! This would be the best gift ever for your fiance. I am thinking an anniversary present may be in order for my hubby... ;) Thanks again Maria and Jen! We loved working with you and are so excited for the photos! PHOTOS COMING SOON!

RIP Marty Lindstrom... a true Marina Legend

Marty Lindstrom was a Marina legend. A bartender at the infamous Balboa cafe, Marty was your friend. I met him years ago when he was working at Balboa. He mentioned wanted to get out of the bartending business and had started his own bag company. We started working with Marty and he provided bags for our bridal salon. We became fast friends. You would never grow tired of his funny stories from the past and he'd always make you feel like a million bucks on any given day. He left us too soon although we know he's in a good place. The self proclaimed "world's nicest human" will surely be missed by his friends and Marina Family. RIP Marty, we love you.

Carnaval Nodo Satin d'Orsay Pumps by Christian Louboutin

Stumbled across these beauties at Saks and just about had a heart attack! The perfect bridal shoe, and even supports your "something blue!" Maybe it's time for a vow renewal just so I can wear these! ;)
