Both Paula and Tuto are young doctors (interpreted "no time to barely even sleep"), so much of the planning and coordinating was done by her amazing mom, Lily. Paula, (again because she's a young doctor) doesn't usually devote lots of time to dolling herself up for work! So getting to meet her for her trial [...]
I love the few hours I get to spend in the room with the bride getting her and her best girls ready. The mood is always charged with energy. Everyone's festive. They're laughing, dancing, exchanging memories and hugs, and of course, drinking champagne! Brooke and Drew had the most beautiful, playful chemistry between them, which really [...]
It was such a pleasure getting to know Sharon during the planning of her wedding. Ironically, she was was following me on Instagram under my jewelry boutique and hit me up one day and said "Hey, I think you're doing my wedding make-up!" Small world!

Wedding Planner: FourNineTeen Weddings Hair: Victoria Alfaro This wedding was featured on the Brides Without Borders and La Bride website.

Dior Airflash Spray Foundation I normally use a combination of Bare Minerals, Benefit or whatever my client may bring that she loves to use. The [...]
I met with Catherine prior to the wedding for her trial session. I love doing trials, it's a great to get together with the bride prior to the wedding so we get a chance to work together in an unrushed atmosphere and really narrow in on the look that she wants. When wedding day rolled around, [...]
