Destination Wedding In New Orleans with my Favorite New Jersey Couple

5am at the airport, ready to go to sleep
This wedding was a little different because it was more of a Wedding Anniversary Celebration of 10 years for Susan & Stan. I was booked for the wedding but have been working with Susan and her girlfriends a lot both here in New York & New Orleans. So once Susan shared me with me the date I locked it in my books because I couldn’t miss it this time around. http://www.google-analytics.com/urchin.js_uacct = “UA-3446372-1”; urchinTracker();

I arrived in New Orleans on Friday morning met up with Susan to go over the details. So on Friday I enjoyed my time in New Orleans before turning in early. Saturday was definitely a magical day, I turned my room at the W Hotel French Quarter into my mini makeup room. Susan, Kecia and Miss Baley came up to get ready then took the shuttle bus over to Cafe Amelie. This beautiful in lush courtyard was a perfect place for this wonderful ceremony. After the celebration we went over to Kingfish for the after party for more drinks and celebrating.

New Orleans Bride Kelly McCord

http://www.google-analytics.com/urchin.js _uacct = “UA-3446372-1”; urchinTracker();

New Orleans Bride Kelly McCord now Kelly Waltz was a special bride because I’ve done her makeup about 4 maybe 5 times. The day before the wedding I flew in from New York and was very excited about doing her makeup for her wedding day. Kelly selected New Orleans Top Wedding Photographer Studio Tran so she will get amazing pictures. I was very shocked when we discuss the makeup during her bridal consultation that Kelly selected dark eyes for herself and her girls. I was surprised because Kelly is so soft spoken in gentle that I thought she was going to say brown eyeshadow with a nude lip. Maybe I created a monster because she also got sexy lashes on her wedding day. Kelly knew what she wanted and I was just honor that she asked me to be her makeup artist on her wedding day. LUV HER!!!!!

Wedding: Bride Brittany Oswald

I met my bride Brittany from doing another one of her bridemaid Mimi Water, who is also Brittany cousin. I find that I work with a lot of families where they all will use my makeup services from weddings, birthdays, special occassions, etc. 
Brittany got hair & makeup ready at The Roosevelt Hotel. The FAB hairstylist Tommy Centanni was stylist of choice a great pick.
I ws so excited when she told me becuase I love going to the hotel in December it always look like a winter wonderland. They really do an amazing job in the lobby. You almost forget your in New Orleans.
On the girls eyes I went with a teal grey eyeshadow color, bronzer on the cheeks and a nude glossy lip.
