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. 
All makeup and vendor details are listed at the bottom of the post.
