Another bright and early wedding day! 5am wakeup call! 😨😨 I was running on 2 hours of sleep; I couldn’t sleep the night before for some reason and it wasn’t even MY wedding!!! Lol 😂😂
As much as I would love to show up straight out of bed in my pjs without brushing my teeth or putting on makeup, I can’t do that to my brides! Or to the public!! 😮 So I still try to look as cute as my 5am self will let me. Gotta look presentable for my girls!! 👍👌 😆
Today’s bride does not wear makeup at all so she wanted very natural looking makeup for her wedding. We came up with a romantic and soft, super pretty bridal look!
For the maid of honor, I did a soft medium smokey eye using MAC’s ‘mythology’ eyeshadow with a light handed black eyeshadow to smoke out the outer corners. How smokin’ is she!! 🔥🔥😍
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.
Trying to get a good picture with my 2yr old is hard nowadays but we did it! =)
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!
