I am so honored that I was asked to be the makeup artist to one of my dearest friends, Ashlee, for her wedding last month. Ashlee is a girl that always has her hair styled, makeup (although sometimes perfectly minimal) always done, and knows what she wants in life. For herself and for her friends. She's opinionated, determined, strong, beautiful, and - as you can see here - a stunning bride! Knowing Ashlee as well as I do, I assumed that she would have an entire map of her makeup look already drawn out for me to follow - BUT she was surprisingly relaxed about the entire process. Perhaps it's the trust that is created over 10 years of a life-changing friendship, but she let me do what I do - and I created a makeup look for her that is romantic, glowing, and fresh... while still serving some drama.
I was a mess the morning of her wedding - nerves all shaken up. I wanted everything to be perfect for a girl that deserves to have all she's dreamed of. Enjoy these treasured images with me, captured by chicago's amazing Lauren Wakefield of Lauren Wakefield Photography, as we can absolutely see that this wedding was all that Ashlee dreamed of - PERFECTION -
