Alexandra + Chris’ Springtime Early Mountain Vineyards Wedding

AWPFavorites116

Soft hues, stunning Virginia spring weather, and a gorgeous bride and groom? Yes, it sounds like the perfect wedding day to us, too. Alexandra + Chris’ springtime Early Mountain Vineyards wedding has everything we love in a big day. Romance, beauty, and a bride and groom that could light up an entire room together.

For Alexandra’s wedding day, we wanted to make her look ultra romantic. For her makeup look, it was all about enhancing her natural beauty. We kept things neutral but defined on her eyes but made sure to keep her lashes voluminous and romantic.

We absolutely loved getting to work with Alexandra during her Early Mountain Vineyards wedding, and we hope you enjoy some of our favorites moments from this lovely couple’s big day thanks to Aaron Watson Photography.

Love,

Michelle + Andy’s Autumn Keswick Vineyards Wedding

171028-504

Nothing says autumn quite like warm hues, blankets, and al fresco weddings. Of course, that means we’re totally in love with Michelle + Andy’s autumn Keswick Vineyards wedding. This pair was the epitome of romance during their big day. From a sweet and intimate first look to an absolutely breathtaking sunset ceremony, if you’re looking for fall wedding inspiration, this is it. We can’t wait to show you how we captured all the romance of autumn for Michelle’s wedding day look.

We wanted to make sure that Michelle’s stunning beauty was the very first thing the guests saw. To do so, we pulled her beautiful blonde hair back into a low, curled up-do. To keep things, soft, however, we made sure that soft curls framed her face. As for her makeup, we kept things glamorous with black liner to define Michelle’s eyes and a focus on lashes to keep things romantic. We were in love with the final look.

If you want to see Michelle gorgeous wedding hair and makeup, check out some of our favorites moments from she and Andy’s perfect Keswick Vineyards wedding day.

Rachel + Will’s Classic Black-Tie Wedding at Farmington Country Club

 

 

W0236_0487

Nothing says timeless like a classic black-tie wedding, and that’s exactly what Rachel + Will’s Farmington Country Club wedding was. From the stunning peach and pink tones to the church ceremony and beautiful reception, it was everything you could want from traditional nuptials, and maybe even a bit more thanks to our gorgeous bride Rachel.

For Rachel’s wedding, we wanted to keep her look traditional yet romantic. To do so, we swept her hair back, but we also kept it low and loose to avoid any sort of harshness. For her wedding makeup, we did the same. We moved away from anything harsh and instead embraced a bridal glow on the skin with a bit of flush on the cheeks. For her eyes, we defined them but kept the colors neutral.

Being part of Rachel + Will’s stunning wedding was a joy, and we’re so excited to show you some of our favorite moments.

Love,

The Charlottesville Makeup Artist LLC Team

Kaitlyn + David’s Cinderella Themed Wedding

Kaitlin and David 2018 3 Cats Photo Blue Ridge Mountain Photographer 26138

If you think themed-weddings just don’t work, well, I hate to break it to you, but you’re wrong. Kaitlyn + David’s Cinderella themed wedding is one for the books, and the ultra-romantic theme only helped to make this one of our favorite big days. Of course, the clear love between Kaitlyn and David didn’t hurt, either.

With a theme like Cinderella, Kaitlyn’s look was all about romance. We swept her hair back into a loose updo but let spirals fall in the front to frame her face. As for her makeup, it was all about Kaitlyn’s natural beauty. With neutral tones, we defined her eyes. For her skin, we made sure that she had the bridal perfect bridal glow.

We were so honored to be part of Kaitlyn + David’s big day, and it truly was a dream come true. Congratulations to the beautiful couple. Take a look at some of our favorite moments from their wedding day.

Love,

Allison + Sandy’s Romantic Virginia Wedding at King Family Vineyards

favorites-55

What do you get when you combine rustic romance, warm hues, and a gorgeous bride? Allison + Sandy’s romantic Virginia wedding at King Family Vineyards, that’s what. This wedding day was punctuated with sweet moments between the bride and groom, a color palette that was rich and warm but still perfect for spring, and a bride who simply glowed. Needless to say, we are totally smitten with this wedding day.

Of course, our favorite part was Allison. This bride was the embodiment of fun on her wedding day. With her vibrant smile and laughter throughout the day, it’s extremely easy to see how Sandy fell in love with her. We decided to take a cue from her gorgeous smile and let that natural beauty shine through. Using neutral tones on her eyes and keeping things natural on her skin, we made sure that Allison’s natural beauty was the real star of the show.

We are so thankful that we were able to be part of Allison + Sandy’s romantic Virginia wedding, and we hope you’re just as in love as we are.

Love,

The Charlottesville Makeup Artist Team
