I am so pleased to have been a part of Allison's wedding day a few weeks ago. The photos you see are courtesy of Erik Leise of E.Leise Photo Design. (He is a super nice guy and a great dresser...we had on the same sweater!!) Allison decided, sort of last minute, to hire a makeup artist and hair stylist for her big day. She felt pretty comfortable in doing her own makeup but just did not want the added stress of having to take that on herself.
Allison and her husband had been a couple for many years before the ceremony but felt the time was now right to make it "official". Some times I have brides who have been in a long term relationship and then choose to downplay the wedding day. Allison was not one of those gals.
She had the beautiful dress, and amazing venue, a bevy of bridesmaids that stunned in red dresses...the whole nine yards. I know she is glad that she decided to go full out.
We used many of the products you will find in our blog reviews including Rock N Rose Lip Liner by Jordana, available at Walgreens; Maybelline's Dream Bouncy Blush in Plum Wine, available at most drug stores; Benefit's Creaseless Cream Eye Shadow in Get Figgy and Smashbox's Jet Set Waterproof Eye Liner in Midnight Black, both of which are available at Sephora.
Congratulations to Allison...a beautiful lady on a beautiful day! Thanks Allison!
