118 Brides for Wedding Hair & Makeup in 2017

We had quite the busy 2017 wedding hair and makeup season. We had the honor of working with over 118 brides in 2017. We can’t thank you enough for trusting us with your most precious day. I started showcasing some of our brides and I realized I could be posting pictures all day long…they are all so beautiful…so I decided I will post more highlights from our 2017 wedding season in the upcoming weeks.

There is so much to share I might have to do a few blogs a week:)

We are so looking forward to the 2018 wedding season. It is already looking to be a very busy 2018..

Thank you again…we love what we do!!

On Site Hair and Airbrush Makeup at Grandview in Nisswa MN

What a bride we had the privilege of  working with at Grandview Lodge in Nisswa this fall. I was so happy when Natalie sent over all of the pictures of her special day. The JOY & LAUGHTER that was seen in every picture…it makes your heart sing….

They were the sweetest group of ladies…her mom was so sweet and sent over such a kind text after the wedding…

“I just want to thank you, Melissa and Kaitlin for all you gals did on Saturday for the girls. They all looked so beautiful…Natalie looked stunning.”

On Site Bridal Hair and Airbrush Makeup at Pine Peaks in Crosslake MN

One of the prettiest brides all the way from big state of Texas was married at Pine Peaks Event Center in Crosslake MN this past Fall.  I know I’ve said this before…but I am so partial to plaid checkered blankets and especially on the bride and her wedding party..

Amanda desired natural bridal makeup…and we used sheer coverage airbrush makeup..the perfect makeup for brides. Her bridal hair is amazing..love the braids. A lot of our brides like to incorporate a braid somewhere in their updo…love it!!

What can I say but that we loved working with this beautiful bride. She was kind, personable and as sweet as they come. Lisel was married at her families cabin up north. A place that holds such a special place in her heart.

I also love when brides share a little of their love story with us..

 I never believed the phrase “’You’ll just know it when you meet the right one.” Until I met “the right one.” On our third date Jaime kissed me softly on my shoulder and that’s when I knew – I was going to marry this guy. That kiss made me feel safe and protected and I felt a genuine and warm love that I hadn’t felt before.

The other reason I knew I would marry him was because we could talk about anything and everything. Open communication was something I had been searching for – for a long time, and I finally found someone that was willing to share everything with me.
