What a joy working on such a beautiful client both inside and out. I met Laura in October 2012 at my beauty studio for her bridal hair and makeup trial. I instantly adored this young beauty! I really enjoyed working with Laura the past few months before her wedding pinning down exactly what look she wanted me to create for her special day.
Tim and Laura met at Pepperdine University at their weekly Wednesday morning university-wide Church service! They didn’t talk at all after being introduced, but he got her number from a mutual friend and after a month of him asking her out for dinners and such, and after giving him excuses for at least a month, she finally said yes. 😉 Since that very first dinner date they have been inseparable! What stood out to Laura about Tim was his huge heart and real interest in getting to know her and ultimately he pursued her and he never gave up! (Now that’s a man to have by your side ladies!)
Laura and Time got married on May 19th in Santa Monica. I got the lovely bride ready in her bridal suite ay Casa Del Mar Hotel. For Laura’s hair, we went for a half up, half down modern look that is timeless and classic. For Laura’s makeup, I used airbrush makeup to give her that flawless look and used very soft pinks on her eyes and cheeks and gave her a nude lip. When Laura got back from honeymooning in Greece, she sent me an article written by the New Yorker about wedding hair fiascos. I could not stop laughing reading through it and dear Laura thinks she was a lot of work! When deciding on her hair style for her wedding, Laura wasn’t sure which style was best for her so we tried a few different styles. In fact she was such a breeze to work with!!
To my beautiful bride, Laura and her hubby Tim may your love adventure continue to inspire and blossom!
With love and blessings,
