Working with so many brides is a wonderful experience since I’m able to be part of their special day.
It’s amazing to think that my work will be captured in such a wonderful memory for all of eternity! Even their great grand kids will see my work as they nostalgically look up on photos of their great grandparents…it’s just so surreal to think about. One such amazing experience was working with Abby for her nuptials to Scott.
They tied the knot at All Smiles Sorrento Ocean Beach and, boy, what a fun wedding that was! They had a very charismatic bridal party that were really energized and made the entire occasion that much more special. The beautiful bride first came into my studio for a consult and pre-wedding makeup trial, which was when I immediately noticed her vibrant green eyes! They were so captivating that I just couldn’t look away as she starred back at me the mirror when we talked about the look she wanted.
I immediately knew that I had to compliment those green eyes with a Jane Iredale gold bronzer eye shadow all over her eyes. To really enhance it all, make those green eyes shine bright, I used Pino Noir Pigment, which just made the entire look vibrant and classic. It was my best paring to date, I believe (for green eyes at least).
And since we all know that weddings are stressful things to plan, I made sure she had no dark circles or puffy eyes on her special day by using Hydrating eye pads right before I applied any of her makeup, which worked like a charm! I was also able to provide my makeup skills for three of her bridesmaids and her lovely mother, which was an amazing day all together.
Other vendors for Abby and Scott’s wedding included Kat Sillars Civil Celebrant, Fairytale Bridals for her dress, Parker Road Flowers, All Over Glow Hair and myself (Ellgant You) for the makeup.
