I remember getting an email from Carla back in March 2012. She told me she was a South African girl living in LA and I that just HAD to do her hair and makeup. We emailed a lot and I just couldn’t wait to meet her. When Carla came to my studio for her hair and makeup trial, it felt like I had known her my whole life. We talked about our past lives growing up in South Africa and how we feel now in this new chapter of our lives.
Carla and Steven got married on October 14, 2012 on Malibu Beach. It was the most gorgeous sunny day. Carla and I had so much fun getting her ready. She was so calm and happy. They had a beach ceremony, therefore for her hair, we created soft waves that looked natural and beachy and for her makeup, I focused on making her eyes pop using soft golden and mocha colors. I had the pleasure of meeting some of her special family and friends, what wonderful people she has in her life.
Carla wrote me this little message that I just had to share on my page as her words truly touched my heart:
“Just wanted to send you a little note to say thank you so much for making me look so beautiful on my wedding day! You are one of the sweetest girls I have ever met!! I don’t have enough words to express how much I have enjoyed getting to know you and hope that we can keep in touch. I got so many wonderful compliments for my hair and makeup!! You made me feel so comfortable and relaxed and I am truly thankful for everything you did! It added so much to what was truly a special and perfect day!”
Carla is an extremely strong woman. Her mom passed away with breast cancer in 2001 and for the last six years, Carla has been participating in the Susan G. Komen 3-Day, with honor and in memory of her angel mom. Beautiful friends, I encourage you to help sponsor her awesome cause, please click here to help.
Carla, you and Steven make an incredible couple and as seen on your special day, you two are going to be in love for the rest of your lives!
With love and blessings,
