HTP Workshop - Marie Antoinette Inspired Wedding

We love being apart of Hope Taylor's workshops! This styled shoot was inspired by Marie Antoinette and was covered by our stylists Lindsay and Kaelie. Lindsay was able to create a soft vintage inspired hairstyle for the bride, who looked gorgeous!

Makeup artist Kaelie did such a stunning job on the makeup application! She created a beautiful soft bridal look that went so well with the overall feel Hope was going for with this shoot!

So many amazing and talented vendors were apart of this shoot!! From the planning by The Caroline Doll, rentals from White Glove Rentals, BREATHTAKING florals by Amanda Veronee, and many more.. it looks like an absolute dream team!

Lindsay and Kaelie were able to fit right into the group to create the perfect bridal look! I am so happy to have such talented stylists on our team!

Below are more of my favorites from Hope!

Stefany's Winter Wonderland Wedding

I was so extremely happy to be apart of this wedding not only as a vendor, but as a guest as well. As many of you know, all of our bridal trials are held in the back of this adorable boutique in downtown Fredericksburg called Peacaloo Boutique (which these amazing silver bridesmaid dresses came from!). Stefany is not only the owner of that adorable boutique but a dear sweet friend of mine as well. Anyone that has had the pleasure of meeting Stefany knows how incredibly kindhearted and caring she is, and I am so glad I was able to see her marry the man of her dreams!

The #1 Skincare Routine Mistake I See My Clients Make

Okay Y'all.. I would just like to talk to you about a reoccurring issue that I see when I go to do a makeup application on most of my clients. When I have the initial conversation with my client to get a feel for their skin type they tend to say how oily their skin is and how it is a constant issue for them (in most cases). When I go to apply their makeup however, I am shocked to find how extremely dry I personally think their skin is. This makes a smooth makeup application more challenging.

Anna's Southern Charm Wedding

Anna was such a sweet bride to work with! I worked with her for her bridal portraits in Richmond and for her wedding day at one of my favorite venues, Big Spring Farm. For her hair we went with a gorgeous chignon with a modern twist and kept her makeup light and natural. Her wedding was full of stunning southern charm, and she definitely fit the part! Gorgeous styling by  Dear Sweetheart Eventsmade every single detail just perfect! Hannah Teague was sweet enough to share her beautiful images of the day with me so I could show them all to you! Enjoy darlings :)
