Megan and Rick’s Vineyard Wedding at Veritas Winery

veritas winery weddingMegan and Rick’s Vineyard Wedding at Veritas Winery goes to show that rain on your wedding day can add a little something extra special! Not even stormy skies could keep this couple from enjoying their big day — in fact they chose to embrace the rain, and with the help of the talented Aaron Watson Photography, captured some of our favorite photos to date.

We loved giving Megan a fresh look with wedding makeup that brought out her lovely eyes and stunning smile. Her look was classic and we made sure she was ready to withstand the best of parties and lots of dancing!

Take a look at some of our favorite moments from their special day!

Love,

Charlottesville Makeup Artist Team

Laura and Will’s Romantic Virginia Wedding

Wedding portraits

Laura and Will’s romantic Virginia wedding at King Family Vineyards is one our favorites! We especially loved the fun we had with the wedding hair and makeup (just wait until you see her floral crown!). Laura’s beautiful sense of style made everything feel effortless, and we can’t get enough of the stunning florals and shades of violet she used to give her wedding the fresh sense of Springtime.

Take a peek at some of our favorite images from Laura and Will’s wedding captured by Katie Nesbitt Photography and just try not to be inspired.

With Love,

The Charlottesville Makeup Artist Team

Kate B’s Glamorous Spring Wedding at Keswick Hall

virginia wedding

Kate and Cody’s glamorous Spring wedding at Keswick Hall  has left us breathless. Everything from the rehearsal dinner to the ceremony at the University of Virginia Chapel and the magical reception under the stars at Keswick Hall was perfect in every way. Planned by Donovan-Groves Events and photographed by Jen Fariello — we couldn’t have asked for a better team!

Kate’s classic up-do with her cathedral veil is one of our favorite bridal looks, and her makeup gave her a dewey glow that was perfect for her springtime wedding day. Her bridal party was also stunning wearing pale blue dresses with their hair pulled back and classic makeup.

Enjoy looking through some of our favorite images — we can’t stop looking at them and we have a feeling you won’t be able to either!

Love,

The Charlottesville Makeup Artist Team

Classic Southern Wedding at Restoration Hall

image_1

A classic southern wedding at Restoration Hall with Charlottesville Makeup Artist? We can’t think of a better combination!

We were so thrilled to be a part of this special wedding day and enjoyed doing hair and makeup for Olivia and her bridal party.

The bride chose to wear her hair half up and half down — showing off her gorgeous long hair and classic beauty.

From the beginning to the end, the day was unforgettable. We especially loved the periwinkle florals by Hedge Fine Blooms that were used as decor for the ceremony and reception. Oh, and we can’t forget the bride and groom racing their golf carts during their portrait session! As you can see, our hairstyles can withstand a whole lot of fun!

Enjoy looking through some lovely images by Aimee Susanah Photography and special thanks to all the other incredible vendors that made this day a dream come true!

Love,

The Charlottesville Makeup Artist Team
