Gentle Peaks of Love: Alex & Stephanie’s Soft Romantic Early Mountain Vineyard Wedding

 

When classic meets romantic, everyone wins. Stephanie + Alex’s soft romantic wedding at Early Mountain Vineyards was exactly that. From the gorgeous bride to the sweet first dance, we’re absolutely smitten with this affair. And obviously, we can’t wait to show you some of our favorite moments.

For our part of the big day, we obviously focused on Stephanie and her gorgeous bridal beauty. Because the wedding was a more classic affair, we decided to do the same with Stephanie’s hair and sweep it back from her face in an updo. We did, however, keep things loose to add a bit of romance for her vineyard reception. For her makeup, we defined her eyes with a slight flick of eyeliner and added a glow to her complexion. Truthfully, however, Stephanie could have worn no makeup and been just as beautiful.

We were thrilled to be part of Stephanie + Alec’s big day, and we hope you enjoy this look into their soft romantic wedding as we enjoyed being there.

Love,

The Charlottesville Makeup Artist LLC 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

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

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
