Last spring, I had the incredible honor to provide hair and makeup styling for Southern Weddings Magazine! When the gals emailed me with their inspiration, I knew I had to be a part. The Dogwood-inspired shoot, "A New Beginning," was everything we hoped it would be - sunny, breezy, whimsical, and surrounded by dogwood trees in full, southern bloom. We tried to emanate elegance, simplicity, and whimsy that is so evocative of spring in the south. The full-length bridesmaids gowns from BHLDN were a flowy spectrum of light mint and blue, so we kept the makeup very fresh in peachy pinks and browns. We styled the bridesmaids hair mostly down, loose, and lightly curled, and featured a braided, loose updo on the stunning bride (who is seen in this Monique Lhuillier gown - so gorgeous). We even got to do a little hair and makeup primping on the three adorable flower girls!
See the full posts here and here on the Southern Weddings website, and of course, the full feature is in Southern Weddings Magazine! Volume 7 of Southern Weddings is available now at major newsstands and bookstores around the country!
We had to wait a bit to share, but like most of the best things in life, it was worth the wait!
Life Stage Films was also a part of the day, and captured the beautiful moments of preparation and shooting in film. We make a few cameos throughout! So beautiful!
