Why you should hire a professional Makeup Artist on your Wedding Day.

Your Wedding Day is the most-photographed day of your life. You will be in hundreds, if not thousands of photos. It's essential that your makeup lasts the whole day. Wedding makeup application is a specialized art. An experienced wedding makeup artist knows how your makeup will look in a photograph. It's an extra cost, and well worth it. Make sure to schedule a trial run a few months before the wedding. Be prepared. Find inspiration in magazines and red carpet looks of your favorite celebrities. A professional has the skills to recreate those looks. Wear white, or the shade of your gown. Take pictures afterwards. Sometimes makeup looks great in person, but not in photographs. And vice versa.

Your makeup should be applied in natural light near a window. Makeup done in a room with artificial light will have a different color temperature than natural light. If your Ceremony is outdoors or in bright room with windows, your makeup will not look the same.

Should I Cover my Tattoos on my Wedding Day?

Tattoos seem to be everywhere these days. It's hard to find a modern pop star without one. Social acceptance has grown, and body art has become a form of self-expression. So it's not unusual for today's modern bride to find herself standing in front of a mirror in a Bridal Salon asking herself...should I cover my tattoos? or some?

You may have a favorite aunt who is telling you that your tattoos will take away from your Wedding Gown and Bridal Bouquet. Or you'll look less elegant. Well think about this. Whether it's a petite design or a sleeve of artwork, tattoos really pop with a white Wedding Gown. And who's to say that flowers always have to be the centerpiece. 

These two bold Brides embraced their ink. They chose strapless styles to show off their body art on their arms and chest. The silhouette of the gowns are unfussy and feminine. The first Bride wears her long hair down coverin…

Wedding at Trump National Golf Club Charlotte,NC

Kaitlyn and Ryan tied the knot at the gorgeous Trump National Golf Club in Charlotte, NC. The cathedral ceilings, chandeliers, floor-to-ceiling windows and incredible lake views made for a grand Wedding Ceremony and Reception. The surrounding grounds were a stunning backdrop for breathtaking portraits and special moments.

The best part of a Wedding is documenting how beautiful everything looks. The decor, flowers and most importantly, the Bride. She gets the royal treatment with on-site hair and makeup in the Bridal Suite. Getting ready with her bridesmaids is probably the only downtime she'll have before the festivities begin. We love how the bridesmaids hung their dresses behind Kaitlyn's exquisite gown.

As the Bride and Bridesmaids are getting glammed up and making sure every detail is in place, we turn the camera lense to the Groom and Groomsmen. One of the best parts of the day for the Groom, besides marrying his true love, is spending time with his best mates. We love thei…
