We’re all about a collaborative atmosphere here at Clearwater, and love to shout-out the amazing talent we have in the Vancouver wedding industry! Our elopement and intimate wedding package features some of our favourite people to work with, and ones that we’ve had the opportunity to get to know and love over the years. To show our thanks, we thought we’d start a new initiative here on the blog, featuring a new vendor from this collaboration every other Friday. To kick us off, we thought we’d start out with one of our partners that we’ve had the pleasure of knowing for many years now, and who has kept us (and our brides!) looking their best: Amber Rodan of Blended by Amber.
A small town girl, with artistic dreams, Amber moved to Vancouver and began her make-up journey over 10 years ago. She has experience working in every aspect of the industry, from managing salons and spas, to creating stunning hair and make-up looks on brides of every skin-tone, style and preference.
Amber is dedicated to creating an amazing experience for her clients while helping them become the best versions of themselves through beautiful hair and make-up techniques. She incorporates sustainable and eco-friendly products that are not only beneficial to her clients and their skin, but also help to create a smaller carbon footprint and prevent animal cruelty. This is very important to us, as we strive to work with vendors that share our values of sustainability and ethical practices.
The level of talent that Amber has is unreal, and she has an extensive resume to show this, having been featured in Rocky Mountain Bride, BRIDES, West Coast Weddings and so many more publications. She is also a winner of multiple 2019 International Beauty Industry Awards, including awards for Best Eco/Sustainable Makeup Artistry and Best Natural Makeup.
We’ve had the pleasure of working with Amber on a number of weddings and styled shoots, which include all of the photos featured in this blog post. Our new elopement and intimate weddings package will be coming soon with full details and pricing, and will include full Hair and Make-up services from Blended by Amber.
We can’t wait to bring all of the love, care and beautiful details to your wedding, whether it’s just the two of you, or 20 of your closest people. Drop us a line via firstname.lastname@example.org!
