Ashley & Jerry

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….

Costa Rica Wedding Make-Up Artist

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.

Jesse & Adam

Jesse and Adam had an amazing wedding that combined their love with their two cultures.  The colors, the textures, the traditional dress, combined with their playfulness made their wedding a feast for the eyes on every level.

Carla & David

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.

Jamie & Warren

Jamie and Warren, from Southern California, came to beautiful Tamarindo to tie the knot at one of my favorite wedding locations, Pangas.

About an hour before our appointment, all of Costa Rica (and parts of Nicaragua and Panama!) had a power outage.  Rumor was it may be out for as long as 24 hours.  But Jamie, being the laid back kinda’ gal that she is, took it all in stride.  We kept the doors closed (to maintain the previously cooled air) and went about getting her and her sister and mom ready for the ceremony.  As luck would have it, just as we were finishing up, the power came back on.

These ladies looked amazing and White Diamond (as usual) created gorgeous photos to remember the day by.

Keri & Matt

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.
Costa Rica Wedding Bridal Make UpDespite 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.”

Renee & Carlos

The sweetest of brides to be.  Renee is from the U.S. and there she met her Brazilian husband to be, Carlos.

I spent a lovely morning and afternoon with her, her mom and Carlos’ family getting them ready for the beach front wedding in Playa Conchal.  Renee has the most brilliant blue eyes, as you can see from the amazing photos taken by Dani Alda.  They say the eyes are the windows to the soul, well Renee’s eyes shone pure happiness, peace and contentment!

Katrina & Chris

Katrina and Chris celebrated their wedding in beautiful Playa Flamingo.

The time I spend with her and her hilarious crew of friends and family could not have been any more fun and entertaining.  This environment was captured perfectly in this first photo by Sylvia Guardia.

Katrina left this lovely review on my review page:

“Tricia did my wedding makeup as well as the makeup for my bridesmaids back, and we were all thrilled with how the makeup turned out. We did a trial a few days before the wedding to make sure she got down the look I was going for. I couldn’t be happier with my makeup on the day of – I looked natural both in person and in the photos, which is what I wanted. Tricia is so talented and a real pleasure to work with. I’m so glad she was part of our special day!”
