6.9.18 – Grimm Wedding

This beautiful wooded wedding & this couple were anything but grim! One word that comes to mind from Sarah’s day is: JOY. This bride, her girls, and everyone present was so relaxed, happy, & filled with joy – exactly how a wedding day should be!

Sarah & Marty chose a beautiful venue for their wedding festivities. It was a location I had never been to before, but hope to go back to someday! It had an AMAZING bridal suite, which in this industry can be hard to come by.

Rachel Ruhl Photography did an astounding job capturing every detail and special moment of Sarah & Marty’s day! Seriously friends, I think she might just be my favorite wedding day photographer (there, I said it!)! I am not even joking, if you don’t have your wedding photographer yet, try to book this woman because she does not disappoint!!

Due to Sarah’s limited amount of time at the venue to get herself and her girls ready, I brought along my trusty assistant (& sister), Katie, to help the morning run smoothly.

Also, I will totally be over-sharing pictures from Sarah’s day because this bride holds a special place in my heart! We grew up in the same neighborhood together & played as kids…so naturally it was such a treat to be given the privilege of beautifying this gorgeous lady on her wedding day!

Makeup Look Details: Sarah went with a super natural look, we did not even do any false lashes. For her eyes I went with peachy, nude tones that enhanced her complexion coloring. I added some slight shimmer (using one of my favorite Makeup Geek shadows). For her blush, I complimented her eyes by continuing in a monochromatic way, using peach-toned blushes and light-medium contour/bronzing shades. For her lips, we stuck with a neutral nude color, with a clear coat of gloss on top to help pop & seal-in the color!

Next up…hairstyling!

In her hair, Sarah opted to include some small strands of pearls, that were from a dress she wore as a flower-girl in one of her family members weddings. It was the perfect bridal touch of interest and sentiment to complete her style! Highly recommend putting something in your hair to make it extra-special!

Hairstyle Details: Sarah chose one of my favorite styles to date! A seemingly “classic” low-updo but with tousled curls and free-flowing tendrils framing the face & nape. We also included two dutch braids coming around the crown and meeting in the low-bun. Her style was a huge success largely due to her excellent coloring and highlights! This style was perfect for Sarah because her highlights wonderfully enhanced and detailed the braids & tousled curls. To set her hair I used some of my favorite products from Kenra Professional & Design.ME Hair. Kenra hairsprays used: Kenra 13, Kenra 25. Design.ME products used: Puff ME Cloud Mist.

Even though the details are given, I am still going to share some pictures of Sarah & Marty’s couple photos/ceremony photos…because their wedding was just that swoon-worthy (& Rachel Ruhl Photography’s photos are just too pretty not to share)! Enjoy!

Happy marriage Sarah & Marty Grimm! It was a JOY to be a part of your day, may your life together be long & sweet!

Fearfully & Wonderfully,
Tiffany

6.3.18 – Brubaker Wedding

Caroline’s wedding day was so beautiful, her and her bridesmaids were such a fun crowd to be with all morning! I had the pleasure of doing Caroline’s wedding-day makeup as well as many of her bridesmaids’ hair.

The chosen venue was gorgeous! We set-up shop in a lovely farm house on the property of Lauxmont Gardens Weddings which had ample rooms for Caroline and her bridal party to relax in.

For makeup, I chose the upstairs blue room, since it had the largest amount of pretty natural light shining in!

While I was getting Caroline ready, her bridal party would meander in and out of the room, until eventually most of them were present, watching and supporting this bride as she was pampered!

As I mentioned before, this bride’s lovely heart and beaming joy shone out bright as she encouraged her dear lady sisters to sing worship songs with her. Truly…the most beautiful women are those who love Jesus, especially on their wedding day. I was so touched as I listened to these pretty women sing their hearts out to the Lord.

The pretty blue room had perfect acoustics and illuminated their voices wonderfully. Caroline & her bridal party were a perfectly fearfully & wonderfully made group of women! Definitely one of my favorite moments!

Naturally, Caroline is a gorgeous beauty who looked like a golden princess on her wedding day, but to enhance her natural sparkle we used some of the following gold-inspired products:

  • Make Up For Ever – gold eyeshadow
  • Make-Up Geek – shimmer shimmer
  • Tartelette in Bloom Palette – funny girl eyeshadow
  • BECCA Cosmetics Highlighter – champagne pop

To compliment her golden glam, we softened the look with hints of nude & natural pink using some of the following products:

  • MAC Blush – pink swoon
  • Make Up For Ever – custom mix (using a few of their nude & pink lipsticks)

Thanks to Jenna Mummau Photography for capturing this couple’s love and joy so seamlessly!

My hope for each and every bride I serve is that they will look back on their wedding day (& the pictures their chosen photographer captured) and be delighted with the look they chose for their wedding day, a look that highlights and emphasizes their radiant, inner beauty.

I think it’s obvious in the pictures above, that for Caroline, this hope of mine will be her reality…because she has such a loving, dear & beautiful soul!

Happiest of marriages to you, Caroline & Nick Brubaker!!

2.24.18 – Hostetter Wedding

When Janelle’s wedding photos came back from the ever-talented Alyssa Christine Photography I was giddy with excitement!

Why? Because this bride’s wedding vision was a dream from her trendy choice of dusty blue lanterns in lieu of bridesmaid bouquets to her extension-styled updo with white floral accents…I was in artistic heaven.

Personally, I love some mood-like colors in images. I feel that it is more realistic and provides more depth and meaning to photographs, which again, is why I was so pumped to be working with Alyssa Christine for this bride’s day!

Alyssa selected the perfect settings for this couple’s portraits and I am so excited to share her captures here with all of you! Not only was Alyssa’s selection excellent for photos, but also her choice went perfectly with my new brand colors (double-win!).

The tan, sage, and gray hues in these photographs are incredibly complimentary, so naturally I did a little happy dance since I am not always so fortunate to have a photographer’s images line-up with my own brand goals!! (Thank you Alyssa!)

Without further adieu, I am going to share some of my favorites of these drool-worthy photos of Janelle’s bright and romantic look!

For details about Janelle’s chosen style & look, scroll past the images for a description of how everything came together.

Here are the pretty little details about Janelle’s whimsical, yet classic, wedding day style:

First, a little secret…

Janelle was one step ahead when she came to me for her trial because she already knew that to achieve the full and beautiful upstyle she wanted, she would need to use hair extensions to help fill-in and bulk-up her pretty, but fine hair (P.S. – the best extensions are clip-in extensions, but a post on that later!).

Did you know ?

I offer extensions rental for your big day, at a low cost to you! The extensions I use retail at a $300 value and are the best bridal extensions on the market. BUT since I want you to have the hairstyle of your dreamsand since I realize that most brides – like myself when I was getting married – cannot afford to pay that additional cost – I mean you are already paying for your entire wedding, right?!

Who needs more large expenses?!

In light of this, I am able to offer high-quality extension rental starting at a much lower, more manageable number. If extension rental interests you, talk to me at your trial!!

More information coming about this in the future: STAY TUNED.

As to the rest of Janelle’s hairstyle, we did a low side-bun with big bunches of curls pinned together in the back to create a really romanticbig upstyle! For the sides we kept them simple and swept back in a way that flattered her natural beauty. Then, for the final touches, some greenery and white florals were added to really bring everything together!

For Janelle’s makeup, she wanted a bright and natural look (like almost all of my brides!), which is my specialty! We went with a bright white-pink-hued shimmer on her lids, with the slightest contour in the outer corner using a darker matte-brown shade, thin liner, false eyelashes (of course!), and waterproof mascara!

To complete her look we went with a complimentary long-wearing blush/lip duo based on her natural lip shade, but intensified a little so as to stand out more in her pictures!

Overall, Janelle’s look was flawless on her wedding day and a perfect representation of not only her natural beauty, but also her inner beauty!

Thank you Janelle for choosing me to be your Hair & Makeup Artist on such an important and special day in your life.

Cheers to your marriage!

Fearfully & Wonderfully,
Tiffany

7.22.17 – Hubbard Wedding

In this wedding, I did not have the privilege of doing the Bride’s hair, but these bridesmaids were a blast! Each of them a real breath of fresh air.

Even though I didn’t service the bride, it was exciting to see her beaming with joy as her day slowly started coming together! I loved witnessing the personable details that she and her groom put into their special day together. Not many brides would be bold enough to choose bright green dresses, but this color was perfectly fitting for their day, as this is the bride’s favorite color. I know that Sarah and her husband will have such a special marriage relationship because their sentimental choices were evident everywhere from the dresses to the decor! Intimacy is deeper when couples know and appreciate these details in each other, which I have no doubt Sarah and Daniel will continue to do for each other.

Anyways, back to the bridesmaids: these ladies are true gold

It is such a blessing for me to meet so many beautiful people in my work! These women were incredibly encouraging to work with, giving me far too many compliments as I curled, braided, or pinned their hair. My job is made easy when clients are as joyfully content as these ladies were!

Not only was their joy contagious, but as a freelancer, I have no co-workers to build relationships with; thus, friendly and personable clients are such a blessing! I loved learning about these ladies lives and seeing their unique personalities play out in the wedding party morning-of.

Congratulations Sarah!! I wish you all the best as you and your new husband continue to seek the Lord in loving one another and others well!

Fearfully & Wonderfully,
Tiffany

 

4.1.17 – Burkhart Wedding

Steph and Anthony’s wedding at “The Booking House” in Manheim, PA was dreamy in every way. Her style was perfectly bridal with the contrast of elegant mood-lighting, pink champagne dresses, and a bit of bronze glam. Steph was so personable and kept making sure that I had everything I needed, even though it was her wedding day! I did not have the pleasure of doing this sweet bride’s makeup, but her mother and bridesmaids were such a joy to do make-up for!  Here are a few pictures from their special day. All photo credits and huge thanks to Chris Copeland  for taking these awesome and genuine behind-the-scenes shots! Check him out if you want some beautifully authentic wedding photos (linked here: Chris Copeland Photography).
