Bridal Hair & Makeup at Grandview Lodge

Kayla was one of the sweetest brides. We have some fun details below of her wedding. Enjoy!!

Introducing Mr. & Mrs. Kriesel!
These two met one another two and a half years ago! They spent 6 months engaged and planning this big day together!

The big question was popped at the Paris Hotel – Las Vegas! My favorite part- the proposal! 
“We went to dinner at the Eiffel Tower restaurant at the Paris Hotel in Las Vegas.  We were seated at the corner window overlooking the Bellagio Fountains and I thought we had sure gotten lucky with such an amazing view.  Before dinner arrived John proposed! After dinner we were picked up in a limo and drove all around Vegas drinking champagne and stopping at different landmarks to take pictures!”

John and Kayla tied the knot at Grandview Lodge– Headwaters Dining Room & Lower Terrace! Such a beautiful venue! 

When asked what was her favorite part of the day was:

Getting ready with my best friends, marrying my other best friend, our best man’s speech/song and spending the whole night out by the fire place on the Lower Terrace dancing and celebrating!”

The wedding colors for this beautiful day were:
pale pinks, gold & white!

She walked down the isle to the song,  Can’t Help Falling in Love!

Her number one tip to a bride to be is “Don’t stress too much about all of the details.  Pick your priorities and make those happen!  People are more likely to remember how much fun they had at your wedding rather than all the details of your centerpieces.  But if amazing décor is your priority, go all out! Planning a wedding is so much fun, don’t let stress ruin the fun.

“These two took their honeymoon to Los Angeles for the Vikings / Rams game and some relaxation! They had a incredible time!

Bridal Hair & Airbrush Makeup at Maddens Resort

Kelsey was one of the sweetest brides. She is one natural beauty and one laid back bride. We went to Maddens to get her ready along with her mom, mother-in-law and bridesmaids.

She was married at The NP Center in Brainerd MN on a snowy day as you can see:) I know we all love summer weddings, but there is something to be said about being married in the Winter.  It’s becoming one of our favorite seasons for weddings and especially the  pictures:)


Bridal Airbrush Makeup & Hair at Maddens

This bride was an absolute doll…one of the sweetest. She is a farm girl at heart and raises a few horses, chickens and I’m not sure what else.

She is a very natural girl and wanted a makeup look that fitted her personality and also wanted to be true to herself.  I’d say she pulled it off beautifully…she is eloquent, classic and absolutely stunning!!

We also love when we get to work with local wedding vendors. Chelsie Elizabeth Photography is one of the kindest photographers and is fabulous as you can see:)

The weather was perfect for Kayla wedding day at Maddens Resort on Gull Lake. 

Enjoy looking at the wedding pictures…it’s always one of my high lights to see pictures of our brides
