Alessandra

An old friend of mine was getting married and he referred his lovely bride to me. I first met Alessandra when she contacted me to do her makeup for her engagement pics. She was so sweet and such a doll, I instantly liked her. The engagement session went well, so she asked me to do her makeup for her wedding. She is beautiful and has an exotic look so we decided to go more with a subtle dramatic look. She looked gorgeous. I also did her mom's and grandmother's makeup.

The beautiful pictures below were taken by a good friend of mine, Caroline Lamarre , check out her work, she's awesome. (click on the pic for better quality)

Sidnaya's Wedding

One of my favorite things about what I do is all the amazing people I get to meet. I met Sidnaya last year for her trial run and we instantly clicked. She is such a wonderful person, beautiful inside and out, always laughing and really down to earth. I was so excited to see her again for her wedding. She is so naturally pretty, so I kept her makeup very natural just giving her that bride glow, which was an easy task to accomplish.

I also got to meet another amazing couple, Ashley and Phillip from 1313 Photography. They were the photographers and did such an amazing job. I have been a fan of their work for a long time now, they took the pictures below. Check out their blog to see more of their amazing work. (click on the pics for better quality)

Felicia Marie .. taking it way back

Felicia, or as I know her Marie, we met each other in kindergarten (yea that's right, kindergarten!). We were best friends but unfortunately after that year she moved away and we lost contact. Fast forward 23 years later she found me on facebook. She contacted me and of course we remembered each other right away. She asked me to do her makeup for her bridal shower and asked me to do her makeup for her bridesmaids for the day of her wedding.

For her bridal shower, she was wearing a beautiful yellow, golden dress. So for her makeup I did a golden bronzey look.

For the bridesmaids on the day of her wedding, it all started with the dresses. Each girl had a different dress in a different shade of grey. I love that Marie let her bridesmaids pick out dresses based on their own personal style. So using shades of greys, taupe, and a touch of purple that is what I did. I created looks based on their own personal styles.

Here are the pics (click on the pics for better quality) :

Joyce's Wedding

I have done makeup for Joyce a few times leading up to her big day. You can see some pictures here and here, So naturally I was excited when her wedding finally arrived. This wedding was extra special because Joyce is a dear friend of mine and all her bridesmaids are also dear friends ... we had a great time.

The bridesmaids were wearing beautiful purple dresses which I was really happy about because I love doing purple makeup for some reason. For the bride I kept it natural and warm and just to enhance her beauty.

The beautiful pictures below were taken by the talented Chelsey Boatwright, check her out. (click on the pic for better quality)

✻ Florence ✻

Florence is a beautiful aspiring model. We have been planning on getting together and playing with some makeup and the camera to see what we can come up with. In the mean time, she was going to a wedding and asked me to do her makeup. She was wearing a teal dress with a gold accent. I gave her a teal and brown look with a touch of gold for some pop. I also did her hair which I curled with a flat iron. She looked gorgeous, I cant wait to do some fun makeup on her, I see her becoming my MUSE ;).

But of course I forget to take my good camera so we had to take pictures with my phone so the quality of the pictures is not the best. Check out the look I came up with (click on the pic for better quality):

Leslie and I, featured ....

Leslie's gorgeous wedding and I were featured in the Brides-Florida magazine April 2011 issue. They interviewed one of her bridesmaids, Katie, on What it cost to be a bridesmaid?. The article includes the cost from the bachelorette party to makeup, which was done by yours truly ;). I think its a great article for brides and bridesmaids as well. Pick up a copy today and check it out!

I don't think we're in Kansas anymore ...

Whitney and her family came from Kansas to have a beautiful destination wedding in Key Biscayne. They were all so very nice and welcoming and it really was a pleasure meeting them and working with them (if you can call it "working").

Whitney had my dream wedding, even the dress. The wedding was small, intimate, and classic. Her dress was simple, form fitting, and flowy. I kept her makeup just like the style of the wedding, simple and classic. She looked stunning and really was the sweetest person. "Whitney, call me when your back in Miami ;)"

Check out the amazing pictures below taken by Epaga Foto. These ladies were awesome. (click on the pic for better quality)
