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.

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.

Love,

The Charlottesville Makeup Artist Team

Charlottesville Wedding Planner Magazine

Feast your eyes on the newest issue of the Charlottesville Wedding Planner Magazine! The cover features makeup by Charlottesville Makeup Artist and we couldn’t be more thrilled with how everything came together! We loved working with such an incredible team, including staff from the magazine and many of the amazing vendors we have the privilege of working with on a regular basis.

The shoot took place at the quaint Foxtail Cottage and the smell of fresh flowers filled every room. We created a look with a hint of drama that included using 15 different eyeshadows to produce a soft, smokey purple hue on our model, Abbey Reddington‘s, eyelids. We also mixed a custom foundation and used light contouring and bronzer to give her a flawless and defined facial structure (which translates perfectly on camera).  Enjoy viewing the cover photographed by the talented Ron Dressel and looking through some behind the scenes pictures by Rachel Gitchell to see more of how the magic happened! We highly suggest heading to the newsstands and picking up a copy of the full magazine or viewing it online!

With love,

The Charlottesville Makeup Artist team
