Complete the Look {Elegant Bride}

Hello Again!
I’m so excited to share this collaboration with you.  I am working with Lover.ly to bring you some of my favorite bridal looks.  For my first look I chose this amazing Ines Gown.  You can shop this style and many others HERE. Something about it makes me think of an elegant spring wedding.  Maybe I’m just a bit hopeful that this wonderful winter weather we are currently having will pass soon.  None the less, here is my take on how I would complete this look.

This gown immediately caught my eye.  The high neck line is classic yet trendy, the cut is simple yet very flattering, and the lace-like fabric screams elegance.  Since the fabric has such amazing detail I decided to choose a subtle look for the makeup.  This allows the gown to really be the focal point.  A complicated or heavy makeup look would feel too busy.
 Soft and glowing skin, light and soft eye shadow, delicate and wispy lashes, and a light pink lip.  Here are some of my favorite products to achieve this look.Elegant Bride
I hope you enjoyed this post and are ready for more like it!
Thanks for stopping by.

Wedding Feature {Maggie 2014}

Hello Again!

I have so many amazing weddings to blog about.  I’m going to start with a preview for a beautiful wedding I was able to do hair and makeup for this past weekend.  I did something I don’t normally do… I took my camera and pretended to be a photographer for a few minutes.  Someone needs to remind me to do this for every wedding.  I was able to capture that exact moment that makes me absolutely love what I do.  Her hair and makeup were done,  her gown was on, but the second I put that veil in and she saw herself was priceless.  She couldn’t help but smile and Mom was in the background with tears in her eyes.  Even when a wedding is stressful on me, this is the moment that makes it all worth it.  The moment that makes me realize I’m doing what I should be doing.

Congrats to Maggie! You made such a beautiful bride.  You are a beautiful person and I am so thankful that I was able to be a part of your beautiful day.  Best wishes on your happily ever after!

Inspiration Shoot {Restoration Emporium}

This past year has been amazing.  I have been busier than ever with clients at the salon and with my wedding business.  One large reason that this past year has been so amazing is the partnership I have made with the E A Bride Magazine.  This magazine is one of the most unique and beautiful wedding magazines I have seen.  Instead of being chuck full of adds, there is real life wedding features, advice from wedding pros, and tons of inspiration.  I am honored to be able to say that I have helped with some of the inspiration photo shoots.

This shoot was set in one of my favorite places in KC!  Restoration Emporium is a Vintage and Antique Home Decor store.  Their motto is:  restore.repurpose.refinish.renew.  They take old furniture pieces that have been neglected and turn them into something amazing.  If you are in KC and have not been to one of their big sales on first friday weekends, you are missing out!  They are located in the historic West Bottoms in KC MO.  You will not be disappointed.  Just take a look at these photos and you will notice the amazing-ness of RE in the background.

Wedding Feature {Ashley 2014}

Hello again!

This wedding was gorgeous. The venue is one of my favorites I have been able to work at.  Cider Hill Family Orchard is a u-pick apple orchard. The property also has a Event Barn and a Guest House for rent. The guest house is newly remodeled.  We had the pleasure of getting ready in the guest house.  It was a great place with lots of room and natural light… great for bridal portraits and putting on makeup! Not to mention Rachell Stierly is an amazing photographer.  She’s great at capturing the special moments that happen naturally on your wedding day. These pictures prove it.  Take a look for yourself!

Wedding Feature {Brooke 2013}

Hello again!

 

This wedding was held on one of the hottest days in the history of ever (really!) in a small town in Iowa.   The heat didn’t seem to matter though.  Everything was beautiful, right down to the last unique detail.  I mean look at that dress!  Brooke found the dress in a vintage shop in Omaha Nebraska. Take a look!
