Hello beauty babes!

Today I am back on the blog (after a very busy summer doing makeup and chasing a toddler around) to share with you some images from a beautiful wedding I got to be a part of this past summer.

You may remember the Greek goddess twins Melanie and Nikki, who I had the pleasure of doing makeup for their weddings in the previous years. Nicole is their cousin, and one third of a gorgeous set of triplets. I cannot express how much fun this group of girls are. I truly enjoy our time together and am so honored to help them get ready on their special days!

Here are some getting ready shots…

I love the detail shots…and I lived for her cap-sleeved choice.

We had our hands full with these beauties! My friend Matthew helped me get them all glammed on time. We gave each girl her own version of soft glam. Almost all the ladies went with smokier eyes, false lashes and glossy natural lips.

It had rained all morning, and by the time she walked down the aisle it had become a stunning sky full of sleepy clouds, perfect for outdoor photography.

A close up of her gorgeous wedding dress… so dainty!

I think the deep teal/navy color they went with looked perfect with the weather! Those glass goblets are everything.

The cutest wedding party photo I’ve ever seen, plus temporary tattoos of the bride and groom for their guests!

Ugh, these two are gorgeous

This past summer, I worked on an outdoor, vintage-themed wedding for Thomas and Stephanie Holland. After seeing how lovely it turned out, I just had to share their photos with my readers!

Wedding 1

Stephanie was the epitome of vintage 40’s. She did a half-up half-down hair do with victory rolls and sweet swirls. We decided to skip the 40’s red lip to give her fiance a break when it was time to “kiss the bride” and played up her deep dark peepers instead. I also gave her that dewy J.Lo glow by highlighting the center of her face and cheekbones with a Mineralized Skin Finish by MAC Cosmetics.

Waterproof mascara all the way for my brides!

Stephanie’s lovely bridesmaids kept in the vintage theme with white cocktail dresses that plumed out just below their knees. Each girl wore different colored heels in bright tones for a modern twist.7

The boys wore khaki pants (smart choice for hot summer days!) and Converse kicks.Wedding7

Look at these cuties!Wedding4

Thomas is half-Armenian, and to honor that, he and Stephanie included an Armenian “Crowning of the Bride and Groom” as part of their ceremony, complete with the armband ties of eternity.Wedding5

With the help of wedding coordinator extraordinaire Debra Meadows of Purple Meadows Events, the cocktail and reception hours included rustic decor and hints of orange. It brought out the nature-quality of the location, which was Middle Ranch. See, you can find beautiful outdoor places near Los Angeles!

How stunning is this shot with their rings?!

The bride and groom did a small cake for themselves topped with a Mickey & Minnie Mouse (the love Disney) and offered cupcakes to their guests, which let’s face it, are more fun to eat than cake slices. wedding10

A big congratulations goes out to Thomas and Stephanie! You guys made a beautiful couple. XOXO
