Growing up, our childhood was spent on the Mendocino Coast. We spent multiple weekends going to the beach, fishing with our dad, going abalone diving, hiking, kayaking, and taking in all the beauty that the north coast has to offer. To this day we have family up on the coast and spend as much time there as we possibly can. When we began doing bridal services and saw how amazing the bridal community was up north, we felt so blessed to be able to work with all our amazing couples who also share a similar love for this magical place.
How does it work for booking Beauty on Set for the coast?
Beauty on Set has a Mendocino team lead by our talented hairstylist and makeup artist Jordyn. Jordyn lives up on the coast in Elk and loves glamming up our brides from all over. Since Jordyn lives the coastal life, trials are taking place up on the coast. Our brides will usually schedule their trial when they are up doing site visits or the week of their wedding when they will be up. If a Bay Area team member comes for Mendocino wedding, we charge a flat rate of $300 per artist per travel. Hotel accommodations may be required as well.
Mendocino Faves + Raves
Horseback riding at Ross Ranch: This is a ranch out of Elk (15 minutes from Heritage house). You can go horseback riding on the beach. Highly recommended if you are up for an adventure. Camping at Mendocino Grove: This is a really fun"glamping" spot that would be cool to check out while you are up there. We have our family reunion there every year. Some of our brides have done their bachelorette and weddings there as well! Kayaking at Catch a Canoe: We recommend booking in advance as they tend to book up. Beaches: Big River Beach, Glass beach, & Navarro Beach are our faves!
Wine Tasting at Bee Hunter: Great for a quick tasting on the way up or to grab a bottle for the room. They have great Pinots! Italian Food at Luna Trattoria: Super cute and cozy! The Waiting Room: Coffee + pastries! Goodlife Cafe: Coffee, quick breakfast and lunch. They close at 2pm so it's another one to go early for. You can order online and skip the line. Maccalumn House, Little River Inn, Cafe Beaujolais: All great for dinner!
