Alina and Kenny got married on December 11th at the Garden Room in Garden Grove, CA. They came all the way from Wyoming to celebrate their special day with their loved ones. Alina and her family are just darling and such a joy to be around. After 5 minutes of meeting Alina, I felt like we had been friends for years. Alina and Kenny got married the day of her parents 30th wedding anniversary. She told me that her parents have been such an inspiration to her all her life and that this day is also a tribute to them and their love. Like me and my own mom, Alina’s mom, Patricia is her best friend. It was so precious to see all the beautiful shared emotions around her family on the day of the wedding.
Alina wanted a slightly vintage look with smokey eyes and a strong red lip. She really pulled it off and looked stunning! We kept her hair half up half down with lots of big curls flowing mainly over her right shoulder and framing her face. For her mom, it was the first time getting her makeup done and she was just the sweetest! I was so excited to put some false lashes on her, which she ended up loving. We also used a red lip on Patricia in order to match the gorgeous color theme.
I really love my job, and being the one to take the bride’s beautiful features and tweak them just a bit to make her feel like a princess on her wedding day! Alina and Kenny prayed their whole lives to find each other, and they did! Now they are off to embark on one of life’s most incredible journey’s…. marriage!
