Christmas Wedding Hair and Makeup | Publick House Historic Inn | Sturbridge, MA

Christmas weddings… it’s that special time of year when things seem a little more romantic, a little more cozy and a lot more festive. I chose to have a Christmas wedding myself, because it’s my favorite time of year! White lights everywhere, fires roaring, snow softly falling. I just love it!

Our bride Dana opted for a Christmas-themed wedding as well, at the perfectly decorated Publick House Historic Inn here in Sturbridge. I did the makeup for the party of 6, while our hair stylist Renee took care of the hair design. Dana wears her hair in a long bob, but Renee was able to pull some tricks out of her bag and created a beautiful twisted updo for her!

Here are some photos from Dana’s beautiful winter wedding, captured by photographer Juliane Karlgren for The Pros.

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.

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

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.

Classic Hair & Makeup for Chrissy’s Western MA Wedding | The Starting Gate at GreatHorse | Hampden, MA

We are so excited to share images from our first wedding at The Starting Gate at GreatHorse, one of Western Massachusetts’s newest wedding venues! We had heard such wonderful things about this venue and were looking forward to having the opportunity to work weddings there, so it was super exciting when bride Chrissy reached out to us to do the hair and makeup for her GreatHorse wedding. The venue is just over half an hour away from our studio, perched on a beautiful mountaintop with gorgeous ceremony and reception views. These photos by Jen Walts Photography capture everything so beautifully – the venue, the hair, the makeup, the love!

Susan’s Early Fall Wedding | Harrington Farm | Princeton, MA

Fall is just around the corner, and I know so many people are looking forward to the cooler temps! It’s been a hot, humid summer here in southern New England. As we think wistfully of autumn, look at some gorgeous photos of Susan’s wedding last Fall at Harrington Farm in Princeton, MA.

Susan has big, beautiful doe eyes, so I knew I wanted to make those the focus of her bridal look. Paired with a pretty nude lip and cheek, her wedding makeup look was beautiful and feminine with a hint of drama. For her hair, Susan chose a half up, half down style that was pulled back into a twist with soft flowing curls, secured with a floral hairpiece that matched the flowers in her bouquet. She looked stunning!

Here are some beautiful images from her wedding, by Scott Metzger of Metzger Studios (he always takes such wonderful beauty shots of hair & makeup!).
