Natural Bridal Makeup | Publick House Historic Inn | Sturbridge, MA

As a preferred vendor for the Publick House Historic Inn here in Sturbridge, we’ve had the pleasure of working with hundreds of Publick House brides. This past June we worked with their bride Andrea, who was such a sweetheart! (Her mom is a transplant recipient, and she wanted to include touches into her wedding that honored that.)

I gave Andrea a beautifully natural bridal makeup look, to keep things timeless. Soft neutral shades on her eyes, paired with a soft plum cheek and lip. And of course, lashes. Lots of lashes!

Romantic Barn Wedding Hair and Makeup | The Barn at Wight Farm | Sturbridge, MA

We have so many wonderful wedding venues here in Sturbridge that invoke the feel of this historical town. The Barn at Wight Farm (part of the T3 Chefs & Catering collection) is a perfect example of that! We are so happy that we get to spend quite a bit of time each wedding season working with so many awesome Wight Farm brides!

Gorgeous bride Ellie is our most recent example. Our artist Betsy gave her a beautifully natural and romantic makeup look, while our hair designer Renee pumped up the volume with textured waves in Ellie’s short, layered bob.

Wedding Hair and Makeup for Ashley’s Wedding | Highfields Golf & Country Club | Grafton, MA

How much do we love when past brides are bridal party members in future weddings? So much! And we love it even more when it’s because they’ve referred these brides to us! There’s nothing quite as special as the referral of a past bride to another, so we were so happy when one of our past 2013 brides (shout out to Jen!) referred Ashley to us for hair and makeup for her wedding at Highfields Golf & Country Club in Grafton, MA this past August.

Here are some photos of Ashley – and her very pretty bridal party! – by Cynthia Abbott Photography.

Glam Wedding Makeup for Carissa | Lord Thompson Manor | Thompson, CT

The Lord Thompson Manor in Thompson, CT has always been a dream venue of mine. It’s in an idyllic setting just 25 minutes away from our studio, and is drop dead gorgeous. Every time one of our brides mentions they are getting married there, I get just a tiny bit green with envy!

And speaking of drop dead gorgeous, that same term most definitely fits our bride Carissa, who had her wedding there back in July. I met up with Carissa and her wedding party at the manor’s Cottage House, to begin beauty preparations. Carissa opted for a bridal glam makeup look, complete with smokey eyes, lots of lashes, and blush pink lips & cheeks – that beautifully complemented her blush pink gown!

Makeup for Laura’s North Shore Wedding | Beauport Hotel | Gloucester, MA

Yourself, but better. It truly is the key to a timeless wedding makeup look. Dewy skin. Blush pink cheeks and lips. Flirty lashes. That bridal glow. The look you’ll love when looking at your wedding photos 20 years from now. This is the look Laura wanted for her North Shore wedding at the Beauport Hotel in Gloucester, MA. And that’s the look our artist Alexandra gave her. Simply gorgeous!

Natural Bridal Beauty for Berkshire Wedding | Chesterwood | Stockbridge MA

Some of the most beautiful weddings we have had the honor of being a part of are backyard-style weddings. And what place better than the hills and gardens of the Berkshires? Erica had her ceremony in the stunning gardens of Chesterwood in Stockbridge, MA, and celebrated her reception under a tent in the backyard of the groom’s family’s Berkshire home.

We created a natural, yet romantic hair & makeup look for the bride, to fit in with the more casual garden style wedding she had planned. Her are some photos from her gorgeous wedding day.

Dreamy Wedding Hair and Makeup | Quonquont Farm | Whately MA

I just love being able to see photos from our past brides’ weddings! I came across some images from Karina’s western MA wedding at Quonquont Farm in Whately last month, and they are so dreamy! Look at how beautiful she looked? Her half up/half down hair style fit her perfectly, and her natural but slightly amped up makeup look put just the right amount of focus on her eyes. So pretty!

Voluminous Curls & Smoky Eyes for Jamie’s Wedding | The Barn at Wight Farm | Sturbridge, MA

On the right person, I love a sexy, glam bridal look. Smoky eyes. Bombshell voluminous hair. Not everyone can pull this off. But Jamie? Oh, Jamie pulled it off. Take a peek at this gorgeous look that our makeup artist Betsy and hair designer Chelsea created for Jamie’s wedding at The Barn at Wight Farm here in historic Sturbridge, MA. {Images by the always fabulous Bunnell Photography}

Wedding Makeup for Beth’s Elegant Omni Hotel Wedding | Providence, RI

Whenever a bride comes to us based upon a referral from Alvah Reida Photography, I get excited. His photos are stunning (as you will soon see), so much so that it’s difficult to pick out just a few images to share. He captures emotion perfectly, with a balance of traditional portraiture and artistic style that is simply beautiful. And this bride in particular, Beth, was so lovely to work with! She’s a beauty both inside and out, and it was wonderful to spend the morning with her, both moms, and her 7 supporting ladies. We provided our makeup services at the groom’s parent’s estate in Shrewsbury, MA where all the formal photos were also taken.

Natural and Romantic Wedding Makeup and Hair | The Log Cabin | Holyoke, MA

The Log Cabin is a very popular wedding venue here in western MA, due in large part to the panoramic view of the Berkshires from it’s outdoor ceremony location. A naturally beautiful outdoor setting pairs very well with soft and natural wedding makeup and hair. Think relaxed and romantic, a soft blush on the skin from the sunlight, while hair blows effortlessly in the breeze. This is the look our bride Liane chose for her wedding, and it was absolutely perfect!

Our day started off by prepping 11 beautiful women at the D. Hotel & Suites in Holyoke.
