Beautiful Bridal Look!

It's been a busy few weeks for me! I want to share this gorgeous bridal look that I did for a style shoot with Souder Photography. I love the natural feel that we accomplished with soft waves in the hair and glowing, radiant makeup that enhances Kristin's features!

Call today for your consultation to discuss your ideal bridal look or meet me down at Wedding 101 on November 3rd from 11-2, November 12th from 1-4 and November 17th from 11-2.

Make it a BEAUTIFUL day!!

Making the MOVE!!

So as you know, I am new to Nashville as of June 2011. My husband, Alan, and I moved our family here and we are loving the lifestyle and area!! There are so many things we like about Nashville and our new home on the hill like Loveless Cafe biscuits, coffee with an AMAZING view, our kids playing with their new puppies (boxers named Texas and Savannah) and the laid back artistic style of the community! These are just a few of our favorite things about living here and they are also some of the things that are stretching me in the area of hair and makeup artistry and design!

Being raised in Atlanta, Georgia and working with brides, socialites and pageant girls in the Metro area has been a wonderful inspiration for me! I have done weddings of all sorts, all budgets and all cultures! It is a cornucopia of people and style! However, the overarching style of glamour and sleek design differs greatly from the more relaxed, etherial look that permeates the bridal market here in Nashville.... and the change is a welcome breathe of fresh air!

I have been a part of two absolutely amazing style shoots that will be unveiled soon.. but I can share a few tidbits with you.  We compiled 6 fresh and fanciful looks that capture the trend of loose and "fuss-free" hair along with makeup that is natural yet alluring at the same time!! (Do you like that description "fuss-free?" I thought of that one myself - LOL!)

Some of my favorite new toys to play with, which I discovered during these shoots, are hair pieces that have a very vintage feel with a modern twist - we even used vintage earrings to decorate a simple birdcage!  Natural makeup with a pop of color on the lips - especially red... my favorite red lipstick is Paula Dorf Stiletto. And there is so much more but "mum" is the word for now!!

Well I hope you will stay tuned and keep checking back until I can unveil the amazing styles we have created to INSPIRE you!!

Amber and Jeff and some biscuits!!

A few weeks ago I wrote about inspiration and I shared my freshly clipped wildflowers, or weeds whichever you prefer to call them!! Since that last post I have been part of a fabulous wedding - Amber and Jeff were married at Loveless Cafe Barn on October 1, 2011!!

What a wonderfully calm and relaxed bride Amber was!! We kept her look very natural, as she wears no makeup on a daily basis. Her hair consisted of soft curls that were swept up  and cascaded onto her shoulders. She was stunning!! I also had a great time getting to know her Maid of Honor as well as her now, mother-in-law, as I created their wedding day looks with fabulous makeup to bring out their eyes and hair styles that could withstand a few spins around the dance floor later that evening!

 It is so nice to see brides sharing their day with so many people and the beginnings of wonderful family bonds.

The venue, Loveless Barn, is amazing!! With lights strung and burlap accents to the tables it was sure to be a relaxed yet special evening for everyone! One that will definitely be remembered by all! And for those of you who know the Loveless Cafe, and their biscuits, I had to order a to-go box and my favorite peach preserves!! Yummy! This job definitely comes with LOTS of benefits!!

 Today, you get to see a picture of those world famous biscuits and stay tuned for the pictures of Amber!! Can't wait to share them with you!!

So what are your plans? I would love to hear your inspired ideas and dreams for your Big Day!!

Love -
