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

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

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,

Lesya + Pat’s Rustic Meets Romantic Mount Ida Farm Wedding

mount-ida-lodge-wedding-photographer-charlottesville-virginia-lesya-and-pat-856

What do you get when you mix the rustic with the romantic? A perfect wedding, that’s what. Lesya + Pat’s Mount Ida Farm wedding is the perfect way to incorporate all the charm of a farm with all the romance of a villa. From the wine and gold palette with soft pink accents to the smiles of the bride and groom, this big day was one for the books.

For Lesya’s bridal look, we kept her hair romantic and in line with the style of the entire day. We worked soft waves into her dark locks and swept back a bit from her face to allow it to shine. For her makeup, we made sure that Lesya’s eyes were the focus. With brown tones, we kept her lash line smoky. Overall, the look was soft and glowing and perfect for a bride.

Lesya’s beauty mixed with she and Pat’s clear love for one another made this bride one that we’ll never forget. From the gorgeous reception to the sweet first look, and romantic al fresco ceremony, it had everything you could want in a classic Charlottesville wedding.

Take a look at some of our favorite moments captured by Meredith Sledge Photography.

Jessica + Bill’s Romantic Outdoor Farm Wedding

Harden1410

If you haven’t gotten on board with outdoor farm weddings, Jessica + Bill’s romantic big day will definitely be the one that changes your mind. From the natural, green foliage to the sweet first dance and outdoor vows, we’re totally smitten with this family farm wedding.

Like always, though, the bride stole the day. Jessica’s gorgeous eyes were the focal point of her makeup look. With ample lashes, a bit of smoky shadow, and an inner corner highlight, we made sure that her eyes shown bright and beautiful on her wedding day. For her hair, we kept it romantic with soft, cascading waves pulled half-way up. Following the ceremony, soft florals were added to the back of the updo for a bit of extra whimsy.

Jessica may have been the most beautiful part of the wedding day, but we can’t ignore the details. The Harden family farm provided the sweetest, down home venue imaginable. With a stunning backdrop for the ceremony and an al fresco, tented reception, you’ll be wishing you could use this private home as your own venue. Then, of course, there’s the natural greenery that accented the tables. They provided added softness to the outdoor celebration.

Clearly, outdoor farm weddings can mix romance, rusticity, and natural beauty. We’re so happy to have been part of Jessica + Bill’s wedding that had it all.

Love,

The Charlottesville Makeup Artist Team
