Bridal Hair & Makeup At the Quarter Deck

M r. & M R S. Manley!
After nine years of knowing one another, these two were very excited to tie the knot! They spent 11 months planning their big day after Larry asked Gloria the big question at Oconee Brew Co. in Greensboro, GA! 

How did he ask? “It was a long time coming, and my husband had the ring for quite some time, but he wanted me to be surprised so he did it when I was totally not expecting it. He asked to go to dinner at this fancy restaurant and by the time we were suppose to be getting ready to go I was not feeling getting all dolled up (of course) so I decided to switch things up and asked if we could just go grab some beers at the local brewery and have a more chill night. He was annoyed but of course gave in and invited his cousin and her husband to come along for company. We had a couple drinks and then his cousin wanted to take a picture so when it was our turn for a picture he got down on one knee and I was totally shocked!”

Gloria and Larry went with Champagne, black, white and greenery for their wedding colors! 
When asked what her favorite part of the day was, Gloria shared: “Since I am from MN and he is from GA the best part was having all of our favorite people together for a long weekend in my favorite place in the world. It was magical.”

Did you do bridesmaid gifts or groomsmen gifts? If so what & where from: “Yes groomsmen gifts from Etsy were personalized lighters. Bridesmaids gifts were earrings and getting ready outfits from Etsy!”

She walked down the isle to Feels like home to me by Chantal Kreviazuk! They shared their first dance to the song You Make it Easy by Jason Aldean! 

Number one tip she wanted to share when asked was-  “Organization!! and dont sweat the small stuff, things will not always go as planned and no one will notice besides you anyway!” 

“Funniest moment of the day was probably watching everyone taking a shotski and their reactions!” 
They didnt do a big formal send off because everyone was staying at the resort, but they did do a sparkler line that they ran through! I love those!! 
After they took a honeymoon to Punta de Mita, Nayarit, Mexico!

This bride was such a happy bride and such a delight to work with as were her daughters:) They were as sweet as punch.

They all wanted an updo since it was a little hot outside – think humidity and mn summers:) She also had the prettiest eyes so we played them up and as you can see they are gorgeous.

Prayer the best way to start  a marriage:)

We’ve worked with so many gorgeous brides. Alyisa was one of them. She was married in December at Maddens Resort on Gull Lake. We’ve worked with her amazing photographer Shelby SC Photography a few times and all I can say – her photos are amazing.

If I can say one thing to brides it is to make sure you have an amazing photographer. Please don’t skimp in this area they are worth their weight in gold:)

We had one beautiful happy bride who was married at Pine Peaks Event Center in Crosslake during the month of February. And yes it was so cold…us girls were so glad we were not the photographers traipsing through the snow:)

Tessa June Photography these photos are incredible…you captured so much joy!!

We always love when brides come in for a trial run. It’s the perfect time to find out what they like and what they don’t like. There is always some tweaking and changing we do from the trial run and the day of.  We added a little more eye makeup and changed the her hair style a bit…

Bridal Hair & Airbrush Makeup at Pine Peaks Event Center

We have been totally in love with Erika’s winter’s wedding that was held at Pine Peaks Event Center in Crosslake MN. There is something magical and romantic wouldn’t you say:) Britt DeZeeuw was her amazing photographer….we are in love in them.

Erika left us such a sweet review and sent us the most wonderful thank you card…

“I absolutely loved captivating beauty! They were punctual, very professional and had the best personalities! They really got to know me and exactly what I was envisioning, more than I could have told them, which resulted in my dream wedding look. They provided outstanding hairstyles and makeup for me and my bridesmaids and I highly recommend using them!!!”
