If you want to get to know a little something about Ashley’s outgoing, bubbly personality, it shines bright in this video by Jonathan Yonkers. It’s the moment when she’s all ready to go, she turns to the camera and exclaims with her Imperial beer in the air “I’m getting fuc*)% married!!” Love this girl….
I first met Ashley for a trial session – she sent me a desperate e-mail stating she was in Costa Rica, had just had a trial make-up session with someone and she was almost in tears at how much she disliked the make-up. Could I could squeeze in a last minute trial session before they headed back home?? Of course, I went 🙂
Ashley doesn’t normally wear much make-up so it was really important to her that she look dolled up without looking made-up! So she and I worked together to create the look she was after.
The wedding day rolled around a few months later and Ashley was nothing short of a bundle of beautiful, happy, excited energy! Her best girls and family were there and everyone was ready to celebrate her and Jerry’s marriage.

Carla and David are from Miami, but her family is Costa Rican. So naturally, Costa Rica was the ideal place to celebrate their marriage.
I met Carla a few months prior to the wedding for a trial session and was immediately struck by her incredibly sweet and gentle spirit. I love that this came through in these beautiful photos by White Diamond.
On the wedding day, Carla was super calm. I asked if she was nervous, excited, etc. She said “No, I’m pretty relaxed.” And she was! As we sat down to start her make-up, someone suggested putting on some music. They put on a slow, romantic Spanish ballad. Within 3 notes of the song, tears started rolling down Carla’s cheeks as well as laughter from her and all of us in the room. She said “Oh my gosh, something less sentimental!” It was so funny and so cute – and I love that White Diamond caught the moment!

Keri and Matt have been coming to Costa Rica for years and so getting married here seemed like the obvious choice for their special day.
Despite being really early in the rainy season – we had lots of rain and on the wedding day, the sky was cloudy and the water was pouring down most of the day. But as their luck would have it, just as we were finishing up with hair and make-up, the clouds parted and Mama Nature shone down her bright sun rays on the remainder of their day!
Keri left this lovely review for Victoria and I:
“I just wanted to say thank you for the amazing makeup for my wedding. Everybody looked stunning thanks to you. Victoria did an amazing job too! You two were so great to work with.”
