In-Studio Wedding: Suzanne

On December 10,2013, I was contacted by bride-to-be, Suzanne. Suzanne was inquiring about hair and makeup services for her December 21, 2013 wedding. Although she’d be getting married in Attleboro, MA, she was planning from Maryland, so I wouldn’t have the opportunity to meet with her prior to the wedding. When speaking with her, she was such a pleasure. We connected instantly, and she secured her date right away. Since she was planning from a distance, and we wouldn’t get a chance to meet until the actual wedding day she immediately sent over photos of herself and her dress so that I could get a better vision of what she was envisioning herself to look like on her wedding day.

Suzanne purchased her beautiful champagne colored dress (which actually happens to be a bridesmaids dress), at a local shop in Maryland. She had the neckline altered into a sweetheart neck, and also added a brooch just to give her dress a touch of bling. Her overall look was simple and easy, yet elegant.

Here is Suzanne before…


When we spoke about her hairstyle, she told me that she just wanted a simple low bun…nothing fancy or over done. She didn’t have photos of what she wanted, so I designed an updo for her based off of the simple description that she gave me. As far as makeup, Suzanne is used to traditional foundation, and is no stranger to eyeliner, mascara, and lip color. We decided to use airbrush foundation for her wedding day since she came into the studio at 11am, and would need her makeup to last through photos at 3:30pm, and her ceremony at 6:00pm. She needed a long wearing makeup application, and airbrush was a great choice. We opted for a natural look, and used champagne and brown eye shadows to accentuate her eyes. To warm up her skin, I used a soft peach pink blush, and she used her own Estee Lauder lip color. Suzanna was such a beautiful bride, and a beautiful person inside and out, and I truly enjoyed getting to know her, and having the pleasure to work with her on her wedding day. Check out the hair and makeup look that we created for her wedding day below.


Congrats on your wedding, Susanne!
