Real Wedding: Luz & Gabe

I loved working with Luz and Gabe. Their wedding took place this past August, 2015 at Camp Hoffman in Kingstown, Rhode Island. Luz and Gabe were planning their wedding from New York City, so initially, I met with Luz via Skype to talk with her about her vision for her wedding and for her hair and makeup. As a woman of color with natural hair, it was important for Luz, who’s wedding was taking place outdoors, to have a style that would remain intact throughout the day, and would hold up through heat, humidity, and heavy dancing. Luz also wanted to make sure that her makeup would be in place throughout the day. Our groom, Gabe, had a beauty service of his own on the wedding day – having his long dreadlocks styled into a sophisticated bun. My artists Jeannette and Miranda worked alongside me, styling the bridal party. Luz hired M.A.W.Beauty and booked the Bridal Touch Up Package, having myself and Miranda on site for touch ups after the first look and prior to the ceremony. Their wedding was the perfect combination of rustic and romance. Check it out below.
