Stephanie and John have been close friends for over 14 years and dating for about 2 1/2 years. On Valentines day in 2011, John gave Steph a pair of open tickets to see Mary Poppins out in New York City. What Steph didn’t know at that moment, was that John had arranged with her work to take some time off, half packed her bags and bought them airline tickets to fly to NYC that very evening! It was a huge surprise! Two days later in a tucked away romantic area of Central Park, John proposed to Steph and she said YES! New York is Steph’s favorite city, which is why John flew her there, they even named their reception tables after places they had visited in New York together.
Stephanie and John got married on July 7, 2012 at the Millenium Biltmore Hotel in Downtown Los Angeles. My beauty team and I did the makeup and hair on her beautiful bridesmaids and mom’s and of course I did the beautiful bride. We had so much fun getting all the girls in their matching bridal robes ready. The bridesmaids wore gorgeous gowns with a touch of baby pink from the Vera Wang collection at David’s Bridal. For Steph’s hair, we created a high bun with braid wrapped around it. For her makeup, I used airbrush makeup to give her that flawless look and used a combination of cream and powder eye shadows in blush pinks, mauve and deep purples. This angelic bride looked absolutely stunning in her Vera Wang wedding dress!
John and Steph both had a very similar vision for their wedding, which was to create an ambiance that was timeless and elegant. Steph told me that what made their wedding so special was that they ultimately married their best friend and life partner!
