Aly & Troy's Wedding

I met Aly when I was a freshman in high school and we clicked right away. We both loved photography and adventuring outdoors and could spend hours laughing and talking. A few year later, Aly moved to Pennsylvania with her family. We saw each others lives online but hadn't kept in close contact until she asked me to do her wedding makeup. I made the journey out and we had an amazing time and picked up right where we left off! All of the wedding images were taken by the talented Sarah Brookheart Photography; you can see more photos from Aly and Troy's wedding here.

Alexandra & Thomas Get Married

Alexandra is an actress, dancer and model, so she was more than effortless to make up! She loves the dramatic look of classic and silent films so she decided to go for a bold red lip and softly defined eye. She and her husband Thomas also did an amazing routine for their first dance, so we made sure her makeup was completely sweat and waterproof to last through the evening.

Stephanie & Jon's Snow Sprinkled Wedding

Stephanie was looking for classic bridal makeup to compliment her stunning dress and timeless sense of style. We went for a mostly matte eye and a feminine rosy lip that paired well with the soft pinks of her bridesmaids' gowns. Even though the wedding was during the last weekend of March with the forecast clear, Connecticut decided to surprise us with snow flurries, leading to some wintery romantic pictures captured by Eric Brushett Photography.

Rachael & Steve's Beach Engagement

When I met Rachael early this spring for her makeup trial, I was immediately drawn to her sweet, bubbly personality and gorgeous blue eyes! She told me that she was obsessed with flirty eyelashes, so we based her look around some customized falsies and a beautiful smoky liner.

Tina & Devon's Wedding

I had so much fun making up Tina for her elegant winter wedding! She chose a classic matte eye paired with beautiful rosy lips, a perfect combination for a crisp February day. I layered a light  traditional foundation base underneath the airbrushing to create a silky smooth canvas that lasts all night long. She was a glowing bride inside and out, and her wonderful bridal party were so much fun to work on!
