3 Day Wedding Extravaganza

So this week we executed the long awaited, much anticipated wedding between Kalani & LeslieAnn. I had the pleasure of doing LeslieAnn's hair and makeup for all of the 4 events leading up to the beautiful wedding on Saturday. LeslieAnn was a unique bride with a great affinity for looking glamourous - hello! a makeup artist's dream! We did a sexy loosely gathered hair style for the first event (a Hawiaan themed welcome party) complete with spectacular faux tropical flowers arranged in her hair and fun, bright makeup. The second look was a throwback to my favorite era of old Hollywood. We chose a very Audrey like ivory & black silk dress so that we could do a big chignon with silver, diamond & pearl hair flowers with none other than blazing red lips, perfect brows and bambi lashes. It was a smash hit! Later that night we transform LeslieAnn into the South Beach Hottie for her rehearsal dinner. We chose big wild beach waves, sexy bronzy skin and eyes with glossy gold lipgloss to finish off her look. The main event... Drum roll please... this bride wanted a 'Kim Kardashian' makeup look paired with an over-the-top take on the recent SJP award show hair style, which I will be honest, the execution made me a little tense but thank goodness we nailed it and it was another home run.

Whew... many thanks to a magnificent couple, a wonderful wedding party, an amazing and creative wedding planner - Vangie de la Concha and the ever pleasent event planner at the Hyatt Regency Grand Cypress - Angela Palacio (who by the way did all of the fantastic invitations - check out papercharm.com).
