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.

Late Fall Wedding Makeup | Harrington Farm | Princeton, MA

It’s that time of year here in New England when the temps have gotten colder and the only foliage left behind on the trees are the burnt umber-hued oak leaves. Autumn is always a popular time of year for weddings here in Massachusetts due to our brightly colored fall foliage, but November tends to get a bit quieter as the leaves drop. This late autumn wedding I’m about to share with you shows just how beautiful a November wedding in New England can be! Golden grasses and shades of rust in the trees lends for a perfect backdrop for warm neutral-toned eyes and a gorgeous coral lip. This is the look our makeup artist Betsy gave Katie for her fall wedding at Harrington Farm in Princeton, MA, captured here in photos by Bridget Parmenter of Charlie Little Photography.

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!
