Nikki and Sean's Garden Wedding

Being a wedding makeup artist has so many perks...The excitement, the dresses, the bridesmaids,  the joy of making a woman feel her best on her big day. All the feels and happiness from loved is such a special feeling that I enjoy more than I can probably express adequately through words...

But the greatest perk of all is to share those feelings with  family. To be the Bride's makeup artist, friend, bridesmaid,and now sister, all in one day....well that's just perfection!

I have known Nikki for many years, as she has been an important person in my brother Sean's life since college. It has been a wonderful experience to watch them grow in friendship love, faith and now marriage. Despite the events happening around Charlotte the weekend of their wedding, September 24, 2016 was a beautiful day. We had a fantastic suite overlooking Uptown Charlotte at Center City Marriott to get ready and have fun before the ceremony.

The ceremony and reception were held at the McGill Rose Garden in NoDa. The venue was beautifully decorated with custom vintage pieces, well placed lighting and just the right amount of charm for a garden wedding. The bride and groom shared personalized vows under a clear blue sky. We danced the night away with friends and family.

For Nikki's beauty- we went with a soft look to compliment her stunning blue eyes. Her hair was elegant and really complimented her dress. During her trial we decided that airbrushed makeup was the best option since her wedding would be outside in a humid climate. 

Hair stylist was Lizzy Barrett of Ups and Dos
