LA Bride @ JW Marriott

It started a year ago or so, when former classmates began contacting me for their wedding makeup and hair. It never occurred to me when I got into this business that so many people from my past would resurface, and instead of trading notes, I'd be a part of their most precious memory: the wedding day.

This is a picture I took after our trial at The Bridal Bar
I was so happy that Valerie and I reconnected for her May wedding. She'd heard from another classmate and her photographer, Ryan Phillips, that I was in the beauty industry, specifically weddings. 
We had a lot of fun at her trial, sharing stories from the past, updating each other on our lives. I gained a new client and a friend!

Valerie's plan was to get ready at LA's newest modern hotel, the JW Marriott at LA Live, and her ceremony took place at Marvimon House, a great local for smaller weddings.
She has beautiful hair, so we decided to showcase it by leaving it down in loose curls, with just the sides back. To fit her colorful personality, we played up her brown eyes with hues in pink, purple, and black.
Check out these eye shadows from MAC Cosmetics.

These wedding pictures are from Ryan's blog , and show the high energy and copious amounts of love between Valerie and Lidan. Coordination and Flowers were done beautifully by Kelly Leonard.

My favorite picture of her- What a smile!
