Featuring Julie + Ryan <3

Okay, so this wedding may have been a ways ago (September 2012) but Julie was such a stunning bride, I had to feature her for the world to see. She is so beautiful and I love that there was such a peace about her. A calming, quiet peace. I showed up at her house at around 5:45AM, maybe the earliest I’ve ever started a wedding! It was an early ceremony, so we had to get a jump on things right away. Everyone was awake when I arrived and ready to start their beautifying process.

I love being a part of people’s big day, it is like nothing else. I’ve been a part of countless wedding mornings and they’re all unique in their own way. The bride dictates the dynamic and the rest follow suit. But one thing is for certain, nothing matters except for the fact that they will soon wed their best friend and partner. It’s an absolute pleasure for me to have some kind of role in a very exciting moment in someone’s life.

Okay, without further adieu, here are a few pictures of her wedding day makeup.

Julie came to me wanting something simple, natural, yet elegant. Something that would still allow her to look and feel like herself, but appropriate for her wedding day. It is a request I get very often, I’d venture to say 99% of the time. Most women feel this way, their fear is that if they don’t wear makeup normally, that somehow it would transform them into someone else! It’s my job to assess my client’s skin tone, skin type, personality and preferences and adapt the makeup to fit them while being appropriate for their wedding day. I’d say simple and clean is my style, I love to enhance natural beauty instead of covering it up. Julie was an absolute natural beauty, and I think she is just beautiful in these photos!
