Sharing these photos from a few of my 2012 weddings makes my heart smile! There are few things more contagious than love, and I just can’t get enough of it. I have so much love to give, and am thankful to be constantly surrounded by it.
My 2013 schedule has been booking up quickly, and I can’t WAIT to witness all the love this year!
Happy Thursday! Meet Shannon O’Brien. Between her amazing cheekbones and super warm personality, you will fall in love with her. Shannon is a crazy talented make-up artist, (I seriously never wanted to wash off my smokey eyes), and the blogger behind Cheap Frills and Thrills.
FROM THE RUNWAY TO THE AISLE
Let’s be honest. Not all runway makeup is wearable in an every day situation - let alone your wedding day. Being recently engaged mysef, I can’t really picture myself wearing THIS on possibly the most photographed day of my life. What is a trendy-loving bride to do?! Fear not my fashion-forward brides! I have sifted through the internet and found some looks from SS13 that easily translate from the runway to the aisle.
1. LUSCIOUS LASHES - Easily one of my favorite looks. Lashes are an instant way to boost the emphasis on your eyes without having to sacrifice the look of being soft and fresh. The best part is that they can be used with ANY look you go for on your big day.
2. TROPICAL POUT - A new spin on a classic red. Try pushing your favorite bright lip color a bit more neon. Balanced with a soft eye it immediately makes your skin look fresh and bright. Spring and Summer is the best time to get away with such a fun fresh look.
3. APRICOT A-GO-GLOW - Soft washes of apricot are a beautiful way to compliment any complexion. It instantly adds warmth and healthy flush to the skin. Don’t just limit it to your cheeks! Blend some apricot into your crease or try an peachy lip to add to the glow!
Don’t be afraid to integrate these trends into your every day look either. You may be surprised and find your new go to!
Nobody’s perfect, but somebody is perfect for you, and you are perfect for them. That’s what is so incredible for me as an on-site bridal specialist. I witness love, at it’s peak. It’s raw. It’s anxious. It’s humble. It’s vulnerable. It’s innocent. It’s that moment of goosebumps that lasts longer than just a moment.
When you witness two people that you’re personally close to on their wedding day, it feels straight up Disney.
Erin and Mike, are perfect for each other. Doing Erin’s hair, and rockin out the looks of so many girls with my bridal team was TOO amazing. Hope this short video by Delack Media Group makes you feel just as warm and fuzzy. :)
Oh hey Wedding Wednesday!
For the feminine bride looking for “vintage chic” I encourage you to check out BHLDN.
The dresses are fairly priced and the look more original than most. New Chicago location if you’re in the area. ;)
