Real Wedding: Angelica & George 5/25/13

Angelica was one of my brides from last year. She got married on May 25, 2013 to the love of her life, George. During the process leading up to Angelica’s wedding, I didn’t have the opportunity to meet her now husband, but let me tell you, this couple is so in love. The interactions that I see between them online (I love connecting with my brides on Facebook and Twitter) are seriously the sweetest. Its refreshing to see two young people who just love each other so much.

Angie and George were married at Kirkbrae Country Club. Since their venue was so close to the studio, Angie decided to have her bridal party receive in-studio services. It was great because the girls had a private place to relax and get pampered before the wedding. For Angie’s look, she decided that she wanted a little more of a dramatic eye – nothing too crazy, but not an incredibly natural look either. We went with a soft smoky eye, keeping her lid light and bright, but darkening her crease with a pretty charcoal color. Angie’s face was kept natural with just a touch of blush and contouring in the cheeks. Of course, the rule of thumb when doing a more dramatic or smoky eye is that you should be keeping the lip color natural, so that’s what we did by using a soft pink color on her lips.

For the bridal party, Angie decided to make things easier by keeping everyone’s hair uniform. She chose a photo of Jessica Alba, which was a super popular style for bridesmaids last year, to use as inspiration for her bridesmaids’ hair. This style had a braid on both sides of the head, and trailed into a low side bun. For everyone’s makeup, the team stuck to the same soft pink color scheme, but tailored it to work with each individual’s skin tone, features, and how they wanted to look. Angelica had 2 bridesmaids who were in their teens, so we kept them quite natural looking. Angelica’s mom was also in on the pampering, and received a beautiful french twist and a makeup application.
