Emily & David, Married
From our first conversation, I adored Emily. I could tell she was my kinda of “bride.” She was sweet, sassy, upbeat and beautiful. What’s funny is that I almost didn’t do her makeup for her wedding because I had been planning on going a little “girls trip,” with my Mother-in-law, but my plans fell through and I was able to share in Emily’s wedding day.
Emily and David were married on June 6, 2019. She chose to have her wedding at Rustic Grace Estate, a stunning venue outside of Dallas. From the moment I arrived I knew I was going to love working there. It was the first wedding I had done there but hopefully not the last. I was able to meet with the Director of the venue who gave me a tour and told me about the history of this unique and beautiful place. She took me over to the bridal suite which is adjacent to the quaint chapel and it was everything I LOVE… rustic simplicity! The huge windows allowed for perfect lighting and I loved looking out and seeing Longhorns bathing in the small lake and rolling green hills.

For Emily’s wedding day makeup & hair, we did not hold back. She loves wearing makeup and it’s always fun for me when I am able to do something that is not as “natural” as my signature look. For her hair, she wanted a classic updo that she knew her Grandmother would appreciate. It was truly a wonderful afternoon. Her bridal party was equally as sweet and beautiful and I am so thankful everything worked out I was able to doll her up!
Here is what Emily had to say about her wedding day:
"Reflecting back on my big day, I truly have so many fun memories that flood through my mind. Everyone around me made the process seamless, which gave me the freedom to enjoy every second of DJ and I's big day. My absolute favorite part was getting to spend time in the Bridal Suite with my favorite ladies. We sang, danced, shared memories and truly had the time of our lives. I believe the secret to this, is not letting the little things become stressful! Enjoy every second of you big day surrounded with family, friends, and the one you chose to spend forever with!
And they lived happily ever after...
