What do two people who said to themselves "I'll never get married!" -- then meet the person of their dreams do? They travel half way around the planet from New Zealand to Costa Rica for a very intimate wedding (5 people) and then globe trot through South America and finish up in the Galapagos. Planner: [...]
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 [...]

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!

While we were doing her make-up, the clouds rolled in and the thunder rattled the windows (happens often in the rainy season!) and I secretly hoped that the weather would cooperate for their photo shoot. When I saw the photos, I realized [...]

They sip champagne, dance around the room, laugh, joke and celebrate the day! That's exactly the day we spent with Ashley. Ashley was kind [...]
After having worked with Katja in her capacity as an event coordinator for Four Winds Weddings, it was a pleasure to have her ask me to do the make-up for her and William's nuptials. You'd never know it by looking at the photos, but as we were finishing up, the biggest, darkest, loudest thundering clouds I've seen [...]
Noelle, a stunning natural beauty, opted for soft make-up that enhanced "her" make-up. Another bride who let me know the make-up didn't budge even after hopping in the pool! No racoon eyes - yay!!
