Tatyana & Alan!

The countdown to the end of my busy 2015 wedding season will soon begin. And last weekends wedding was so beautiful, realizing that actually made me a bit sad.  Tatyana and Alan tied the knot & partied all night at The Manor House, one of my favorite venues!  

The direction I chose for her makeup was completely inspired by her Maggie Sottero gown from Bridal & Formal.  Matte contoured skin with highlight and shimmer  on various parts of her face.  Shimmery smokey eyes using a Dior eye shadow palette, pink glowing cheeks by NARS and a shiny deep mauve lip.  After curling her lashes, I applied not one but two pairs of false lashes by gluing them both together before application... one pair for lengthening and another for thickening.

Hair for Tatyana and her entire bridal party was done by Melissa & Kara from Salon Neveah.

Reading Bridal District Bridal Show

Last week (Thursday, Sept. 17) was the Reading Bridal District "Fall In Love" outdoor bridal show.  Benson Street was shut down for several hours as tons of amazing wedding vendors were set up with booth tables.  In addition to some amazing food and music on just about every block!  There were a ton of brides that attended the show and I enjoyed meeting those that stopped by my booth in front of the studio.

And of course the streets were filled with tons of models, modeling some of the most gorgeous gowns that everyone wished for.  And to add a bit of luxury and glam to the fantastic evening, LUXEredux Bridal model Kristina took everyone's breath away in the three amazing gowns.  Jenny Packham, Amsale Bridal and Christos Bridal.  And yes I did her makeup for the evening!
