Dianna & Steven

Diann and Steve first came to me to officiate their beautiful fall wedding! Upon learning I was a makeup artist as well as an officiant (yup, double duty) Dianna and I scheduled her bridal makeup trial!!

She was so easy and laid back which made my job 47,000 times pleasureable!! Her beautiful green eyes jump right out and I knew that I wanted to play them up and make them pop... of course in a bridal way!! 

Upon arriving at her bridal suite, I met such a great bunch of bridesmaids that, much like Dianna they were awesome to work with!! One girl was just as beautiful as the next!!

By the time I was ready for Dianna, I asked to see her dress... Her spectacular Savannah Marie dress by Maggie Sottero, my one reaction was "Oh this dress is a game changer for your makeup!!". It was so beautiful and elegant but oh so glamourous!!!  I needed to step up my game when it came to her makeup making it as equally as glamourous!! I had no idea how she was going to react to that, but as if I should have known, she simply said, "Go for it"!!

To add that extra POW I used Dose of Color eyeduo in Pixie Dust as well as using the Tarte in Bloom Palette from Tarte Cosmetics.  To give her that "come hither" glamour eye, I used Wispie lashes from Ardell.  On her lip I combined Soar liner and Brave lipstick both from MAC Cosmetics and topped it off with Full for You lip gloss (again from MAC).

The Bride's hair was beautiful cascaded in a beautiful updo expertly done by Rebecca Zagha from Evolution Salon in Monmouth Beach, NJ

Dianna and her bridesmiad carried an exquiste bouquet of flowers that included sunflowers from Added Touch Florist in Brick, NJ.

For Dianna and Steves onsite ceremony, they chose to write their own vows!! I truly love this because a vow is a promise that a bride and groom make to one another from the bottom of their hearts.  Steves vows were more of a affirmation of the love he has for her and will always have.  He expressed how much of a better person she made him and how complete his life is with her in it.  Dianna promised to Steve that she will always be tru to him, to support him in life and his dreams... She also vows to love him more than their cats!! I will say, that was the best ice breaker ever!!

The Bride and Groom created their very own time capsule by doing a "Love Letter and Wine Ceremony". This is a great nontraditional tradition that is very intimate to the couple.  In their handcrafted box, they placed a bottle of wine along with love letters that they have written to each other that neither of them have read from the other.  The idea is that on their first anniversary, they will open the box, exchange the letters and remember the reasons they fell in love and chose to marry.  What better way to celebrate your first wedding anniversary than with a great bottle of wine and a love letter from your spouse!

Steve and Dianna danced their first dance as husband and wife to Ellie Gouldings cover of Elton John's beautiful song "Your Song"
