It’s wedding-recap time! This past June, I had the opportunity to do the makeup for seven bridesmaids and the bride herself, Mrs. Melanie Butters. Because it was such a large party, I called in my most trusted makeup artist pal to help me beautify these babes, Allyson Stagg of The Las Vegas Style Sirens.

Look at that stunning ring!

Here I am putting the finishing touches on the bride-to-be

Melanie and her girls got ready at her twin sister Nikki’s house, which had great natural lighting and lots of room for our massive kits.

Melanie wore a cathedral-style veil which made taking photos even more fun and creative.

My favorite part of weddings are always the gaggle of flowers girls! So cute.

I grew up going to Armenian Orthodox churches, which are identical to the Greek ones. So much architecture and beauty. With the bride’s Greek heritage, I’m sure St. Nicholas church felt right at home.

A sweet moment between Melanie and Andrew before the big party started.

Let’s face it. This is hands-down the best bridal party photo ever taken. These girls were so much fun to get ready in the morning and as you can see their carried on with their mischief right through the day!

Looks like an epic party to me! I love Greek weddings…complete with the traditional circle dances.

Congratulations to the bride and groom! I look forward to beautifying these ladies next year when Nikki, Melanie’s twin sister gets married in November 2015!
