Stephaine & Shaun= MARRIED
What an honor it was to fly to the gorgeous part of Southern Oregon to doll Stephaine up for her picture-perfect I-do's back in July. Everything about Stephaine's wedding day was PERFECT. From the minute I arrived to the venue, I was sure this was going to be one wedding I would never forget.
I had the pleasure of meeting Step several years ago through my cousins of whom she was good friends with. Because most of her family was in Oregon, our family pretty much "adopted" her into ours. She was a part of holidays, "girls nights", weddings and we ALL loved her. When she moved back to Oregon to be close to her man, and family, we all missed her terribly, but that did not keep us from following her and Shaun's LOVE story. I think that is why being the one to do her makeup for this incredible day meant so much to me! I played a part in the very story I was able to watch grow throughout the years.
Knowing Stephaine like I do, I had no doubt that her wedding was going to be one that even the creators of Pinterest would be swooning over. She has incredible style and her wedding was living proof of that. She left no detail undone. From the breathtaking wedding dress down to the area where her cake was placed... everything was perfect. There were moments throughout my day with her where I wondered WHY I had not hired her to plan MY wedding. She truly has a gift!
For Stephaine's wedding day look, I wanted her makeup to go with the "romantic & timeless" feel of her wedding. She has beautiful eyes and flawless skin, so I simply enhanced those features by using soft & neutral colors. I have to say that her wedding day look is one of my favorites. It compliments her hair, accessories and that gorgeous dress. I also had the honor of dolling up my stunning cousin Jamie I also had the honor of dolling up my stunning cousin, Jamie, who was a bridesmaid, as well as Stephaine's adorable momma.
Thank you so much Stephaine for letting me be a part of your day and trusting me with your wedding day look. I love you bunches and I know without a doubt that you and Shaun will have a lifetime of laughs, love and amazing journeys!
