Michelle + Matthew’s Romantic Summer Pippin Hill Wedding

RJG_1689

Get ready to swoon because Michelle + Matthew’s romantic summer Pippin Hill wedding is going to make your heart flutter. With soft florals, a crisp white and gold palette, and the stunning grounds of Pippin Hill, this big day was everything brides dream of, and we’re so happy to have been part of it.

Michelle is a classic beauty, and that’s exactly what we embraced for her bridal look. Of course, we wanted to showcase our bride’s lovely face, so we swept her hair back in a chic chignon but kept it loose for a more romantic feel. For her makeup, it was all about her lovely eyes. We enhanced their natural shape and color with neutral hues as well as liner and lashes. Our bride looked stunning on her wedding day.

We adored being a small part of this warm weather wedding and can’t wait to share a few of our favorite moments with you.

Love,

The Charlottesville Makeup Artist LLC Team

Chelsea + Daniel’s Romantic Outdoor Keswick Vineyards Wedding

Bride&GroomPortraits(65)

Chelsea + Daniel’s outdoor Keswick Vineyards wedding has to be one of our favorites, and we don’t say that lightly. Keswick Vineyards’ gorgeous grounds, Chelsea’s beaming smile, and a tented reception all came together to create a joyous and beautiful summer wedding.

For Chelsea’s wedding look, we wanted her to look radiant and romantic. We kept her makeup ultra-glowy with flushed cheeks and a bit of a natural highlight. For her eyes, we defined them with liner and lashes but kept the colors neutral. Her hair, of course, we kept down for a romantic feeling but swept it back to one side to show off her beauty.

We’re so happy to have been part of Chelsea + Daniel’s Keswick Vineyards wedding and can’t wait to show you some of our favorite moments from their big day.

Love,

The Charlottesville Makeup Artist LLC Team

Sarah + Taylor’s Romantic Wolf Trap Farm Wedding

Sarah and Taylor 3 Cats Photo Blue Ridge Mountain Wedding Photographer 59059 copy

Everything about Sarah + Taylor’s Wolf Trap Farm wedding was a dream come true. This autumnal affair had everything we love: sweet moments between the bride and groom, a gorgeous reception, and romantic vows. Of course, our bride Sarah was the shining star. Her mega-watt smile basically lit up the entire day, and we were so pleased to be there to help her feel her most beautiful.

For Sarah’s bridal look, she wanted something a bit Old Hollywood glam. Her long dark hair is perfect in tumbling finger waves, and we swept it to one side to showcase her beauty. As for her makeup, we did a slightly smoky look that was sultry but still classic.

We’re so excited to give you a look at Sarah + Taylor’s Wolf Trap Farm wedding!

Love,

The Charlottesville Makeup Artist LLC Team

Mollie + Sam’s Romantic Virginia Farm Wedding

View More: http://chelseaschaeferphotography.pass.us/kesting-wedding-2018

When you meet a bride as sweet and beautiful as Mollie, you know that you have to be a part of her big day. Thankfully, we got to help this stunning bride feel gorgeous during her Virginia farm wedding. Mollie + Sam got married at romantic Mount Ida Farm, and it was a big day straight out of a fairy tale. While we loved the soft, natural details and heartfelt, moving ceremony, Mollie was by far our favorite part of this wedding, and it’s not hard to see why.

For Mollie’s wedding day, we wanted her look to be soft and romantic. We pulled back her blonde locks into a low and loose updo and added bits of baby’s breath for a touch of whimsy. We left a bit of hair loose to fall around her face. For her makeup, we defined her eyes with liner and lashes and gave her a bridal glow that was natural yet defined. The result was one seriously perfect bride.

We loved being part of Mollie + Sam’s Virginia farm wedding, and we’re so excited to show you some of our favorites moments from the day.

Love,

The Charlottesville Makeup Artist LLC Team

Laurene & Dominick’s Natural Lydia Mountain Wedding

LaureneDom_081518_127

Natural greenery, a gorgeous farm setting, and a stunning bride and groom? It doesn’t get better than Laurene & Dominick’s Lydia Mountain wedding. From the outdoor vows to the beautiful reception, we are so happy to have been part of Laurene’s big day.

Of course, Laurene was obviously our favorite part of the big event. Her naturally beautiful smile and shining eyes made our job so easy. We kept her hair romantic by sweeping it to the side and added a bit of drama with a sparkling piece for detail. As for her makeup, we adore Laurene’s stunning eyes, so defined them with liner and lashes and kept the rest of her look neutral.

We were so lucky to be part of this couple’s wedding day photographed by Jared Ladia. We can’t wait to show you some of our favorite moments from Laurene & Dominick’s wedding day.

Love,

The Charlottesville Makeup Artist Team
