Emily + Matthew’s Romantic Early Mountain Vineyards Wedding

Romance, a rustic winery setting, and an adorable pup: could a wedding get any better? Emily + Matthew’s Early Mountain Vineyards wedding had everything you could want from a big day. With romantic florals, stunning acreage, and one exceedingly cute dog, and we can’t wait to share it with you.

For Emily + Matthew’s wedding, we kept Emily’s makeup natural but sophisticated. With smudged liner and gorgeous lashes bringing out her beautiful eyes and a neutral lip, her natural beauty shone through during her big day. As for her hair, Emily’s strapless gown was perfectly accented by tresses pulled away from her face and shoulders in a classic up-do.

After getting ready, Emily went to meet her groom for the couple’s first look. On the stunning verdant grounds of Early Mountain Vineyards, the pair saw one another for the first time on their wedding day, and it was enough to bring tears to our eyes.

However, it was only the beginning of the day. The pair said their vows in front of family and friends, surrounded by love before going to their romantic reception. Complete with lush florals and stunning chandelier, the pair celebrated and danced the night away.

We are so happy to have been part of Emily + Matthew’s wedding day, and we’re equally as excited to share these highlights from the affair.

Love,

The Charlottesville Makeup Artist Team

Lauren + Tom’s Romantic Spring Trump Winery Wedding

A classic affair meets romantic whimsy? Where do we sign up? Lauren + Tom’s Trump Winery wedding is everything we love about tradition. From tuxes and ball gowns to a classic palette of navy, gold, and white with subtle pops of deep pink, this springtime affair is the epitome of everlasting elegance.

While Tom’s black tuxedo was all tradition, Lauren’s layered ball gown brought the whimsy. With flowing tulle and ruching along the bodice, it was a fairytale in a dress. To complement the stunning gown, we pulled Lauren’s dark locks away from her face and off her shoulders in a spiraling wedding up-do. For her makeup, it was all about the eyes. A subtle bit of liner and gorgeous lashes were the name of the makeup game.

Once Lauren was ready, she and Tom shared a sweet first look under the clear blue skies at Trump Winery. Soon, they were joined by their dapper groomsmen and beautiful bridesmaids to kick off their vows.

With the spring day so clear, why pass up an outdoor ceremony? The pair exchanged vows on a gorgeous terrace overlooking the green hills of Trump Winery and like new couples do, sealed their love with a kiss.

As for the party? It was perfect parts elegant romance, stunning dinner, and must-attend party. With gorgeous flowers, sparkling candelabras, and the joyous bride and groom, this big day was unforgettable.

We were so happy to be part of Lauren + Tom’s Trump Winery wedding, and we’re sharing some of the day’s most beautiful moments with you. Take a peek!

Love,

The Charlottesville Makeup Artist Team

Kathy + John’s Al Fresco Swan Cove Manor Wedding

They say that brides glow on their wedding day, and that couldn’t be more true of our bride, Kathy. As for her new husband John, if smiles could light up cities, these two have enough wattage to power New York itself. Kathy + John’s Swan Cove Manor wedding isn’t just filled with love, smiles, and enough laughter to make you giggle at your screen, though. It’s particularly beautiful because it’s close to our hearts here at Charlottesville Makeup Artists as Kathy is our founder Anne’s sister.

Of course, that means we had to be part of this pair’s big day, and it was one for the books. Kathy looked lovely in her boho BHLDN gown, and her long tresses trailed down her back in a waterfall of curls. As for her makeup, we kept her look natural because that mega-watt smile was the real star.

After Kathy was ready, she and John shared a sweet waterfront first look that was basically magical (No, really, see it for yourself). Afterward, the pair said their vows in an open air ceremony under a beautiful canopy of trees, and what’s a wedding without a celebration? Sweet succulent accents, burlap runners, white linens, and neutral hues gave this boho affair a natural touch that was perfect for the al fresco setting.

Kathy + John’s Swan Cove Manor wedding was one for the books, and one we’ll always cherish. Take a look at some of our favorite images from this romantic celebration.

Love,

The Charlottesville Makeup Artist Team

Eliza + Charlie’s Classic & Elegant Homestead Wedding

There is something about a classic wedding that makes us giddy. From a traditional church ceremony to a black-tie dress code and romantic meets elegant decor, there’s a reason we’re dubbing Eliza + Charlie’s Homestead wedding a classic. We fell head over heels for this bride and groom, and we can’t wait to share some of our favorite moments with you.

Of course, our favorite part of any wedding day is our bride, and Eliza was a true gem. With her beaming smile and chic style, we made sure that her beauty was shown off by sweeping her hair back into a classic bun that allowed us to show off her gorgeous features. For her makeup, we kept things defined by natural. We used neutral tones on the eyes and defined her lash line with a bit of black liner. For her lips, we went with a glossy sheen that had a hint of a light berry hue.

We adored working with Eliza, and we’re so excited to show off her gorgeous wedding day at The Homestead.

Love,

The Charlottesville Makeup Artist Team

Lucie + Nick’s Classic Mount Ida Farm Wedding

AWPFavorites098

There’s something about a fresh, white palette and classic florals that will always make hearts aflutter. That’s certainly the case with Lucie + Nick’s classic Mount Ida Farm wedding. This beautiful couple’s rustic meets classic feté was filled with sweet, intimate moments, stunning details, and southern tradition (hello, buried bourbon).

For her wedding day, Lucie looked absolutely breathtaking in her lace gown. We kept her hair soft and romantic in a half up, half down style with a jeweled clasp holding back her dark locks. As for her makeup, the eyes have it. We subtly smoked out her outer corner but kept her lid bright to keep her eyes looking bright and awake. With a smokier eye look, we chose to keep her lips sweet and subtle with a bit of pink gloss.

Lucie shone throughout her big day as she and Nick said their vows and celebrated with friends. From the classic tradition of burying the bourbon to a romantic, al fresco ceremony, and classic reception, this pair’s Mount Ida Farm wedding was one for the books.

Love,

The Charlottesville Makeup Artist Team
