I seriously can’t say enough good things about this bride! She was such a joy to work with and get to know! We started with a trial run a couple of months prior to her wedding. I knew I would love her when I knocked on the door and I was greeted by her two very cute pugs!

She told me she would like to wear her hair half up on her wedding day, so I curled it and loosely pinned it back behind her head piece. As far as her make up goes, she wanted a smokey eye with a little shimmer and we decided a berry lip would look best with her complexion.

On her wedding day I got to the house Tara and her family were staying at and started unloading my stuff in the RAIN! As most girls know the word rain should be considered a curse word on a wedding day! Everyone stayed positive and remained hopeful that the rain would subside by the time pictures needed to start. Tara showed me upstairs and explained to me that this is where we would be getting ready temporarily, in a few hours we were going to move to a beautiful location down the street to finish hair and make up and take the “getting ready” pictures in a gorgeous cottage.

 

I started hair and make up on the mother of the bride, who was very sweet and also a joy to be around! She had one of those faces that will make your mouth drop with the right make up application! We decided on the always classy French twist for her hair, since we were unsure of the weather, and like most mother of the brides she would be running around all day and needed something that would hold well. I have to say she looked killer!

Tara had one bridesmaid, her best friend Danielle. Who was so naturally stunning without her hair or make up done! Turns out Danielle is a beauty guru herself, its always so much fun for me to have a client who enjoys hair and make up as much as I do! While we were chatting about the latest beauty trends, and Kylie Jenners lips, I pulled her hair into a low bun with a braid on the side. This girl had gorgeous eyes, so we really played those up with some false lashes and kept everything else pretty neutral. She completed her look with the most epic floor length emerald green sparkly dress! Maid of Honor for the WIN!

By the time I was ready to start on Tara’s hair and make up it was raining cats and dogs outside, AND the venue we were supposed to get ready in had double booked or something, not allowing us to get ready in Tara’s dream spot! We didn’t have time to waste so we made the best out of the room we were already in and got started on hair and make up.

Tara explained to me that she wanted her hair to have a little more curl to it then when we did the trial run, and she also wanted to tone down the shimmer on her eyes. (This is why we do trial runs ladies, so we can get it PERFECT the day of! ) I started with her make up and gave her a very fresh, dewy glow to her skin, light matte smokey eye paired with lots of individual lashes, and of course, her berry lip that looks so stunning on her! Tara wanted her hair to look like a princess…. lots of curl and volume, paired with her beautiful sparkly headband. I loosely swept the sides of her hair around her headband to create one of the most beautiful half up hairdo’s to date! I have to say, she looked like she came straight out of a fairy tale!
