Wedding Season is Coming to a Close!

Weddings - Captivating-BeautyThe wedding season is winding down in the Brainerd Lakes area….we still are booked out for a few more months, but you can sense the season has come to a close.

I know the brides we have booked are hoping for beautiful Fall weather in the Lakes Area except one – who is hoping for a little snow:)

There are still a lot more bridal pictures to come so keep checking back in with us.

Thank you to all the brides who have entrusted us for your wedding. We love weddings, and we love helping our brides feel and look beautiful!

A lot of times one of our brides will ask us to share a story of a Bridezilla that we had to deal with….and we tell them we have never had a one!! Since we have a lot of wedding under our belt in 3 short years….that is saying a lot!

Thank you to all our brides – you have been the best!!

Brainerd Lakes Real Wedding

nick and jordyns first look

We love romance here at Captivating-Beauty in the MN Lakes Region! Honestly, we don’t know one bride that doesn’t like to be swept off her feet by her prince charming do you?

Jordyn and Nick from the Brainerd Lakes Area….are one such romance. These few wedding pictures that you see are just a little sampling of the love that is seen and felt between them.

Jordyn wanted a very natural, barely there no makeup, makeup look and a simple, yet elegant wedding updo with a little sprinkling of baby’s breath.

She was so pleased with the results.

Here is a little testimony from her for Captivating-Beauty:

“These two lovely ladies are so fun and very good at what they do. I felt confident in the result and they welcomed my critiques to help create exactly what I wanted. It was such a fun experience and I felt very comfortable with them.”
