Edmonton Bridal Fantasy Show 2014

Today I went to visit Chris & Kimber of http://www.chrisbernardphotography.com at the Bridal Fantasy Show here in Edmonton.  Their set-up was absolutely gorgeous!!!  It truly represented their clean and modern style and really showcased Chris’ awesome work.  I also had tons of fun checking out all the different vendors and pretending to plan my imaginary wedding muahahaha

This was such a beautiful set-up.  Very romantic, whimsical and garden-esque.  Definately a nice change from the usual all white + purple lighting decor that most people have for weddings nowadays.

I woke up before the crack of dawn for my bride today.  Let me tell you, it wasn’t easy.  My whole ‘put-on-makeup-look-my-best-at-all-times-cuz-I’m-only-young-once’ motto went out the door!  Hahaha. I stumbled out of bed, barely brushed my teeth, (sorry Adeline! muahah) slapped on some eye cream n moisturizer and out the door I went. 

Everytime I have to wake up early (before 10am) for work, I always ask myself ughhhh whyyyyyyy did I agree to this!??  But I love what I do and I wouldn’t wanna be doing anything else!  It’s kinda like going to the gym…you don’t really wanna wake up for it and you have to drag yourself there.  But once you’re there it’s all good and you’re glad you went and when you’re done its so rewarding and you love it!! Haha. That’s how I feel about waking up early for wedding gigs. 🙂

Adeline had a bridal trial with me a few weeks ago.  I have never met a bride who loves a good smokey eye more than myself!  Yay! My kinda girl!!  🙂  Don’t be afraid of a dramatic smokey eye for your wedding.  It’s super sexy and photographs awesome.

Here is the finished look for Adeline’s big day today:

A primer, 2 eyeshadows and a highlight shadow were used for this smokey eye.

I also had the pleasure of doing the mother of the bride’s makeup as well and she looked so so beautiful. But unfortunately I forgot to take a picture.

It was so nice meeting you and your mom Adeline! Thank you for the yummy food and remember to send me pics!
