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,

The Charlottesville Makeup Artist LLC Team

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

Susan + Suraj’s Multi-Cultural Summer Wedding at Pippin Hill

AWPFavorites140

We were lucky enough to bring you a sneak peak of our bride Susan’s wedding hair, and now we’re excited to share she and husband Suraj’s multi-cultural summer wedding at Pippin Hill Farms. Their gorgeous Indian fusion wedding was a joy to be part of, and we couldn’t be more in love with this beautiful pair.

For Susan’s wedding day, we decided to let her natural beauty shine by sweeping her hair back into a low, twisted up-do. With loose but defined waves, her hair was classic and romantic. For her makeup, we kept things natural yet defined. We went with a more matte look to the skin with a bit of a flush to her cheeks. For her eyes, we defined her outer corners to make her eyes shine. On the lips, we went natural so that her eyes were the focus of her bridal look.

Susan + Suraj’s Pippin Hill Farm wedding was a true joy, and we hope you love these moments from their big day as much as we do!

Love,

The Charlottesville Makeup Artist Team

Ashley + Jon’s Rustic + Romantic On Sunny Slope Farm Wedding

486A6455nickiahrensphotogrpahy

When it comes to classic spring weddings, does it get any better than an al fresco big day on a farm? Not for us, and not for Ashley + Jon’s On Sunny Slope Farm wedding. This pair’s rustic meets romantic big day was filled with special, personal touches (just look at those adorable pups), laughter, and a display of love that is basically a fairy tale.

While we love wedding details, it’s all about the bride for us. Ashley’s smile could light up a room, and her effervescent personality makes her a total dream. For her makeup, we decided to embrace that incredible smile with a hint of pink on her lips. For her eyes, we defined them with a bit of liner and enhanced her beautiful lashes. She was the epitome of a glowing bride.

Take a seat and enjoy some of our favorites moments from Ashley and Jon’s gorgeous On Sunny Slope Farm wedding.

Love,

The Charlottesville Makeup Artist Team

Katie + Johnny’s Soft + Romantic Keswick Vineyards Wedding

Katie+Johnny married!!!

An al fresco ceremony, soft florals, and a romantic fountain-front vow exchange? Yes, it’s safe to say that Katie + Johnny’s soft, romantic Keswick Vineyards wedding is going down as one of our all time favorites. Captured brilliantly by Ward Photography, this couple’s big day was filled with lovely moments, and we’re so excited to share some of our favorites.

While the entire wedding day was a dream, Katie was, of course, our dream girl. For her wedding, we made sure to keep her look in line with the rest of wedding so romance was key. We pulled her long, dark locks back into a half-up, half-down updo with soft curls cascading down her back. For her makeup, a natural but defined look was key. We wanted to enhance her already beautiful features but keep things simple. The result was a soft look perfect for her romantic day.

We loved everything about Katie + Johnny’s Keswick Vineyards big day, and we can’t wait for you to see it in all of its lovely glory.

Love,

The Charlottesville Makeup Artist Team
