Sally Kay & Luke’s Autumn Pippin Hill Wedding

Sally_Luke_wedding0337

Sometimes, there are weddings that simply take your breathe away. Sally Kay & Luke’s autumn Pippin Hill wedding was one of them. From the gorgeous al fresco ceremony to the romantic reception to this couple’s pure love for one another, this pair’s wedding goes down in our books for sure.

For Sally Kay’s wedding look, we wanted to keep things romantic and just a bit smoky to fit with the autumnal, evening timing of the big day. With a bit more dramatic of an eye look, we made sure to keep her lips and cheeks neutral but flushed. We also love Sally Kay’s gorgeous red-hued hair, and we wanted to showcase it. We kept it down, but swept to the side for an elegant touch and finished things off with soft curls.

Being part of this pair’s wedding day felt like a dream. We’re so excited to show you some of our favorite moments from this fall wedding.

Clarisse + Tim’s Summer Wintergreen Resort Wedding

bride-groom-103

Clarisse and Tim’s beautiful Wintergreen Resort wedding took full advantage of how stunning Charlottesville is in the summer, and we loved every second of this wonderful couple’s big day. From the first look at Raven’s Roost to their open-air vows, their wedding was pure magic, and we’re so pleased to be able to show you some of our favorite moments.

Clarisse is so naturally beautiful that she made our job easy. For her hair, we went with a minimalist updo that was both classic and romantic and worked well with her stunning veil. For her makeup, we kept her look natural but defined with a bit of smoky eyeliner along her lash line and neutral shades on her eyes. As for her skin, we kept things glowy and flushed and topped off the look with a gloss.

Clarisse and Tim’s Wintergreen Resort wedding was such a joy to be part of, and we hope you enjoy seeing these few moments as much as we did.

Catherine + Tim’s Spring King Family Vineyards Wedding

AaronWatsonPhotography0698

Sunshine, outdoor vows, and greenery galore? Catherine + Tim’s spring King Family Vineyards wedding was one for the books. From Catherine’s gorgeous smile and bright eyes to seeing this couple so in love on their wedding day, we were ecstatic to part of something so special. Now, thanks to Aaron Watson Photography, we get to share some of our favorite moments with you.

Of course, we can’t deny that working with Catherine was our favorite part of the day. This bride’s sweet smile made our job so easy. For her bridal makeup look, we went a bit more glam and highlighted Catherine’s stunning eyes (seriously, they’re gorgeous). We lined her eyes and went a bit smokier with the look before adding a nude lip. For her hair, we kept it soft and romantic with loose curls.

We’re so excited to showcase some of our favorite moments from Catherine + Tim’s spring King Family Vineyards wedding and continue celebrating this beautiful couple.

Love,

The Charlottesville Makeup Artist LLC Team

Francesca + Ben’s Rustic Meets Natural Red August Farm Wedding

fran+ben0374

A rainy day couldn’t get Francesca + Ben down! Their rustic meets natural Red August Farm wedding was nothing short of brilliant despite the clouds and rain. From their touching first look to their romantic barn vows, come rain or shine, this pair was determined to have a fantastic wedding, and they did!

While we adored seeing Ben + Francesca’s love for one another light up the day, our bride was obviously the best part. We absolutely adored her romantic meets boho updo with bits of baby’s breath details and soft curls. For her makeup look, we wanted to keep things natural so we used soft hues on her eyes but defined them with liner. As for her lips, we kept the tone a peach nude for a softer look.

We can’t get enough of Francesca + Ben’s Red August Farm wedding, and we’re so excited to show you some of our favorite moments.

Love,

Rachel + Nick’s Summer King Family Vineyards Wedding

R+N Portraits-105

If winter weather is getting you down, we have a dose of summer on the blog for you today. Rachel + Nick’s summer King Family Vineyards wedding is the perfect way to remember that flowers will bloom again, the sun will shine, and a couple in love is always in season. Rachel + Nick’s big day was as romantic as they come. From Rachel’s gorgeous smile to she and Nick’s sweet first look,  this pair was basically glowing on their wedding day, and we were so happy to be a small part of it.

Of course, if we’re going to talk about a glow, we have to talk about our glowing bride. For Rachel, it was all about her wonderful smile and those beautiful eyes. We made sure that her eyes were the focal point of her look, defining them with liner and lashes. For her lips, we kept the color neutral so that her eyes stood out even more. Finally, for her hair, we swept it into a half-up, half-down style with romantic curls framing her face. The result? A glowing bride we just couldn’t get enough of.

We were so happy to help Rachel feel beautiful during her summer King Family Vineyards wedding and can’t wait to share some of our favorite moments with you.

Love,

The Charlottesville Makeup Artist LLC Team
