I was so excited to receive these beautiful images in my inbox yesterday! Danielle, one of my 2014 summer brides, celebrated her wedding in a beautiful vintage gown complemented by delicate lace sleeves.
Her bridal makeup was inspired by a bit of old Hollywood glamour – dramatic winged eyeliner, neutral toned eyeshadows, and a bold garnet red lip. Bold lips look amazing in photos but can often require a bit more maintenance than a bride would typically prefer. I applied a mix of lip pencil and long wear lipcolor for Danielle and we knew we had a winner after our bridal preview when she sent me this message the following day:
"It was great meeting you yesterday! I just wanted to follow-up with you regarding the big day! My makeup was beautiful and long-lasting. I was super impressed with the lip color. It lasted through two meals without a hitch!"
I loved her overall bridal look – so romantic! Please enjoy these gorgeous photos from Nima Salimi, one of my favorite photographers.
