americana “i do’s’

9 May

This Sacred Day was close to my heart.  Ok, confession, every wedding I am blessed to be a part of is close to my heart; it’s an honor to be such an intimate piece of a Bride’s Wedding Day.  This day was just a touch more intimate because the lovely Bride is my cousin.

Andrea and Dave are amazing free spirits.  Case in point: their rehearsal dinner was at a hole-in-the-wall local & organic vegan eatery hand-picked by the groom.  They are both teachers with a passion for South America and truly are two of the most beautiful, imaginative people I know.  They brought their unique, bohemian-americana lifestyle into every detail of their Wedding Day and it was truly a perfect reflection of them as a couple.

Because Andrea & Dave tied the knot outdoors in Balboa, San Diego early in the morning, we decided on Airbrush Makeup to ensure her makeup stayed fresh in the hot sun and lasted through the brunch and off into the night.  Andrea is a fresh-faced beauty and we wanted to keep her makeup simple while still creating that, “me on the best day of my life” look.  So, I focused on framing her gorgeous eyes with soft peach and champagne hues and gave her a set of long, sexy lashes for the “wow” factor.  I kept the rest of her makeup simple and pretty, evening out her skin tone and giving her a fabulous peachy glow.
I finished her look with a soft, glossy pout.

Obsessed with her bouquet!

During the Ceremony, the Bride & Groom washed each other’s feet as a symbol of serving one another selflessly…

You may kiss your Bride!
