I was so lucky to be a part of Carmen and Patrick's glamorous Art Gallery wedding last fall!
I finally got to meet Carmen in person last summer at her trial, after months of emailing back and forth about the glamorous Bridal look she was after to complement her high fashion Art Gallery of Alberta wedding. She was such a warm and fun girl and I knew the spark in her personality needed to shine through in her hair and makeup!
I always love a bride that wants to amp up her look for her big day, someone who isn't afraid to 'break the rules' and stay true to her self when planning her wedding. I often tell brides that it is extremely important to be true to who you are when you are planning. While it is important to think out the details-the most important thing is to be able to look back on your lasting memories and see you...not what you thought people expected you to be.
I was a big fan of the shimmery, smoldering eye she was after and I think her final hair and makeup look was a beautiful mix of modern, sexy(but not too sexy) and elegant. Even after a year, I still love her look!
This was a fabulous wedding!! She had an all-star team to make sure every dream she could possibly have for her big day would come true effortlessly and without any worries for her, she definitely had the ‘WOW’ factor from start to finish!
Carmen’s morning began at the Matrix Hotel, it was so relaxed with a really low stress vibe(aside from an early morning mild case of hives which was remedied easily and dealt with like a champ by Carmen!), she was excited to start the next chapter of her life and I felt(as always) so privileged to be a part of such a special time. I’m not sure if my brides always fully comprehend how much I enjoy seeing these special moments in their lives, but I guess the secret is out now!
I loved Carmen's Purple and Gold theme, which carried through her event…not to mention those beautiful flowers Janine at FaBLOOMosity designed for her:) You have outdone yourself yet again Janine!
Rebecca at High Culture, designed a very glamorous event for Carmen, from the beautiful venue all the way to ensuring everything was done to perfection…which is not something that surprises me-Rebecca loves to design beautiful, glamourous events for her clients!
Carmen, thanks so much for sharing these moments with me-I am so grateful to have been part of this big moment in your life. I wish you and Patrick many years of happiness building your life together!
