Two brides Are Better Than One
Niki and Kelsie
This Buzzfeed beauty and her now wonderful wife were married at Roche Harbor in the summer. These two were the best to work with and allowed me to get them ready in their own separate island cabins. Niki went for a chic bun with classic makeup and Kelsie opted for a side swept glamorous look. They had family all around them that day and lots of friends all the way from Los Angeles to help them celebrate. It was a pleasure to assist both prepare to be wed as it was refreshing to see one bride find the finishing details is the perfectly tailored suit then to see another find such femininity in a strapless tulle skirt gown. Their story was one of the most moving and they were truly meant to be. Love is love no matter what!

Saying "I do" in European Gardens
Hannah and Blake
It was such a joy to see my long time client Hannah say "I do" to her love Blake in front of their family and friends on the beautiful grounds of Lakewold Gardens. The historic venue was such a romantic setting for the ceremony and reception. Hannah and her bride tribe were beyond fun while they were reminiscing about college days and the love the bride shares with her now husband. Hannah shined with a airbrushed golden glow and a romantic inspired updo that set the perfect spot for her cathedral veil. Her bridesmaids were gorgeous with their own soft styles to pair with their long navy gowns. Mothers of the Bride and Groom were both elegant in their updos and dresses that complimented them just so. The day was filled with plenty of joyful tears. One of the most beautiful moments was the father and daughters dance at the hotel.. A love a father has for his daughter is immeasurable, to see them at that moment makes me cherish the opportunities I get to see clients venture into a new chapter in their lives. This lovely couple had the most stunning of wedding days which they both deserved!

Dana and Nile
Autumn weddings give those fall feels that make it intimate and cozy for all that attend. The ceremony of Dana and Nile included sweet nuptials that brought even the littlest member of the family Hazel into the “I Do” moments. This redheaded beauty of a bride was a delight to work with and really had a bridal look that was signature to her. From Gold boots, to her stunning illusion dress it was the perfect pairing with her loose waves and warm toned makeup look. We opted to give her fantastic skin with airbrush to make sure she remained flawless from her kisses to dancing. We even got the opportunity to doll up the cutest flower girl ever because after all it was her day too. Ending the epic evening were Llamas on a white lighted terrace and cheers with champagne.
