Que suspenseful music.. dun dun duuuun. (Is that how you spell Que? Cue- Q, isn’t that how you spell the Spanish word for “What”? Well you get the point. I hope. ) No make that- some sort of action movie music.. Okay, play whatever kind of music you want in your head. Whatever puts you in the mood for a secret elopement. I’m not sure how much I’m suppose to say, and not say- so I won’t. I’ll just talk about this gorgeous bride, and her hair and airbrush makeup.
I met Sarah when she came to my home for a trial. I t was a dark and stormy night, and she was dressed in dark shades, a trench coat and some sort of mafia, Frank Sinatra looking hat. Okay fine, so not really. I think she had some super cute knee high boots. I digress.
So we did her hair trial and all of a sudden she busts out this adorable bird cage veil she found for a steal at an antique store. Be still my heart. I lurve birdcage veils!
So on her actual wedding day, which was a gorgeous Monday morning- we did natural, beachy airbrush makeup and full sexy curls, with her bangs swept back and some to the side. It was an easy day. A. because she’s gorgeous as it is, and B. Because she was just so nice. Loved her.
So Sarah, I wish you and Andrew the best!

Amy found me via my sister Wendee with Lucies Events. I had only talked with Amy via phone calls and emails and never actually did a trial with her. So on the day of, I was a wee bit nervous but this definitely wouldn’t have been the first time I’ve done a trial-less wedding. Once entering her hotel room, I KNEW my job would be a piece of cake. The girl is gorgeous! I was certain I could throw a bow in Amy’s hair and then blow some powder on her face and I’d be done! BUT, we decided to go the professional route.
I ended up doing Amy’s moms hair that day as well. But for Amy we did loose curls with natural makeup and darker lips. The weather was rainy and VERY humid. Which is always a concern for girls with naturally straight hair. Luck was on our side and her hair held up rather well! Thanks for being so awesome Amy!
This is a wedding that took place a little over a year ago- and I have been in regular contact with Mary but have neglected to share pictures. For shame, I know!
Mary got married in Leander/Cedar Park so in hopes of saving them some money (and because Mary is SOOOOOO sweet, you can’t help but want to help her) I offered up my home for them to get ready. So they accepted, and Mary and her wedding party got ready here at mi-casa. It was quite nice. Everyone was in good spirits and really friendly, I loved her mom (aren’t moms wonderful) and her bridesmaids and flower girls were wonderful as well.
(Sorry in advance, but I have to out a little here)
Mary has gorgeous hair. But wanted a really full hairstyle so we opted for extensions which I put in the day of. She also wanted a side swept hairstyle for the ceremony and wanted to be able to rock a different look for the ceremony. So we decided on having it all down for the reception. I pinned it so that it would be sturdy enough to last but easy enough for her to take out and still look great for the reception. We also did soft natural, but a hint of sexy makeup.
Anyway- here are a couple of pictures to tide you over for now!
Sigh.. I think about working on my blog almost daily. Its a lot of pressure you know to put up great pictures and then think of something interesting to say with it. Annnd.. I’m lazy. There I said it. LAY-ZEE. If I could, I’d hire someone to keep up with all of this for me. Hey.. you lookin’ for a job?
Well I tried.
Anyway- here are a few scattered photos from previous weddings. I will do individual intros here soon on each one. Promise.. promise to try anyway.
The following was dear Anneke’s wedding. The girl is gorgeous as it is, so as always- my job was super easy. I loved her unique dress and you all know I love me some hair flowers and feathers!
We got Anneke and her bridesmaids ready in her hotel room, doing both hair and makeup, and everyone was SOOO SOO nice. It really did feel like we’d known each other forever and we just had a great time chatting and laughing. Loved them all! Peter Staats
was the photographer for her wedding and was great about getting these to me. I have no excused for why it took so long!
Sweet little Becky.. That’s the first thing that comes to mind when I think of this awesome bride. When I first met Becky at her hair trial, she wanted a really romantic and somewhat traditional updo. Becky has TONS of hair and really wanted to have it neatly piled in curls high on her head, she also wanted to keep her makeup really natural. See, Becky doesn’t wear any makeup. She is blessed with natural beauty and fantastically flawless skin. I know.. hate her with me. But hating Becky is impossible. She’s too sweet. You know what? So is her mom. Her mom was hilarious and equally as sweet, but just a bit more outspoken. Especially on the big day. Man was she feisty!
Anywho- I met with Becky at Angel Springs Event Center, and right away I could tell this was going to be fun. Becky and her mom were in great spirits. We got started almost immediately and then her photographer showed up. Courtney with Courtneyspraguephotography.com came toting some heavy artillery consisting of a super fancy camera and ladders. Multitudes of different size ladders. I like this girl… I like her a lot! Especially since she took pictures of me from atop one of these ladders. I’m going to put that in my contract- all photos of Angela Parker must be taken from at least 5ft off the ground. Listen- I know the pictures are about the bride and her big day- but if I see another random picture of me and my double chin and/or arm flab I’m going to take a road trip to border town Mexico and get some semi sterile lipo done on myself.
Sorry- where was I? Oh yes.. Here are some photos of the joyous day!
