Ariel and Gui's Fall 2016 Wedding

Ariel and I were connected through her best friend, Erin. Erin and I go way back..we were Nordy Cosmetics girls together (that is Nordstrom to the rest of the world).. and ironically enough, she went to prom with my brother...The world is small! Keep connections...they always pay off somewhere in life!

I immediately could feel Ariel's calm presence at her wedding trial. I knew that she wanted a look that would be a true representation of her style. Easygoing, but classy. Ariel had never been airbrushed, but we decided that was the way to go. Her South Carolina Fall wedding was still going to be a warm day...airbrush was the best choice. This was the sure bet to guarantee her makeup lasted well into the evening. Ariel wanted some glam...but nothing too over the top. I enhanced her natural beauty with cool tones that complemented her eyes and smile. She told me all about her love story and how she met her Brazilian husband, Gui. While I worked on her look,Ariel mentioned how extra special their day would be because many of Gui's family members were coming to SC for their wedding. I had the pleasure of meeting and glamming a few of his family members, and they were wonderful!

Her wedding was at the Watershed Pavilion in Edgemoor, South Carolina. I am long time friends with the owners of this fabulous place. If you are in the Charlotte area, I highly recommend this venue for your wedding. When I saw Ariel's reception decor I was inspired to take her look up a notch. The rustic feel of this venue really gives any event charm, but on Ariel's day, this place looked extra amazing. I wanted to make sure she did too....

Then I saw her dress...It was stunning! I decided to enhance the colors on her eyes a bit more...and I am so glad I did. I think the addition of a little more color really tied her look together. Her bridesmaids looked extra chic in their floral robes.I enjoyed working with them as well.Ladies...pick your bridesmaids wisely...they really can make or break your wedding day! Ariel had a wonderful group :) 

This wedding was photographed by Jamie Shook of Vintage Daisy Photography. I highly recommend Jamie for your photography needs. She is professional and has a great eye for a beautiful picture.


Enjoy the pictures! Congrats to Ariel and Gui!
