Our team has done it again! The Knot has awarded us Best of Weddings for 2018 in the Bridal Beauty category. This is our 8th consecutive win, and continues our reign as a top awarded hair & makeup team on The Knot in the entire greater Boston area.
Thank you to all our brides who continue to pass along great feedback about us. Every review is so greatly appreciated!
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.

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!

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.
Many, many hours later, and those waves are still going strong!

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!

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!
Look at that glow! <3 Continue reading “Makeup for Laura’s North Shore Wedding | Beauport Hotel | Gloucester, 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.

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!
Congratulations Karina! <3
