My beautiful Ridgefield, CT bride Lauren Carroll could not have selected the most wonderful castle to get married at. A few months ago Lauren did her bridal makeup consultation with me. Then later that day her mom Marcia booked me. They didn’t need to discuss it Lauren wanted to lock me in for her wedding day. Then last month we went makeup shopping at Sephora so she could have makeup for the honeymoon. Lauren wanted to look like a fresh face spring bride so the makeup look I gave her was just that. Here are some pics of Lauren and her family in the bridal suite before the wedding started.

Friday I spent my day just hanging out you know in a castle, cuz that’s how I roll. Despite the horrible rain storm I had a grand time once inside the Whitby Castle with my New York bride Kimberly and her friends. Kimberley was such a trooper she handled the rain storm like a pro, she was so relaxed and chilled the entire day.
For her makeup look she originally requested something very very natural, she’s a no makeup kinda of lady. But on her wedding day she was ok with me bumping it up just a little and for her second dress change I gave her a red lip with body makeup and highlighting and contouring. She received so many compliments on her makeup that she felt good about letting me take her out of her comfort zone for her dress change. While I was doing her makeup Kimberly shared with me that I was the makeup artist for her neighbors wedding in New York as well. I knew that Kimberly found me through my New York client Nancy but I didn’t know she was a past bride neighbor, what a small world.
