 So, I am super late on blogging this gorgeous, brunette beauty …. but better late than never! Jennifer’s wedding day look included a palette of soft beigey-nude-browns and pretty pinks. I created a sideswept, softly curled updo that we topped off with a pretty little bling. Enjoy these gorgeous images from her Paradise Cove at Lake Grapevine wedding by Nicole Berrett Photography.

Taylor’s wedding day beauty | Charla Storey Photography | Swingin’ D Ranch

25 Apr

Happy Friday! Everyone, meet Taylor, one of my fall/winter 2013 brides who was as sweet, wonderful and lovely as she was gorgeous. She has the sparkliest eyes I’ve ever seen (so obviously we totally played those up!) and the thickest hair of all time. Ever. (I think I’ve said that before, but Taylor totally wins the prize). She wanted classic, wedding glamour so I used a smoldering grey palette on the eyes, with a neat, sharp winged liner and matte skin with big curls and the perfect little floral topper. Enjoy these beautiful images by Charla Storey Photography from their wedding at Swingin’ D Ranch!

Courtney’s natural wedding beauty with NBarrett Photography at Gather McKinney

10 Apr

Courtney & Ben said “I Do” in a sweet and beautifully intimate ceremony this spring at Gather McKinney. Courtney was a no-makeup kind of gal, so she wanted to keep her look as clean, simple and natural as possible.

So we did just that! Pretty, smooth cream foundation, a little bronze and coral pop on her cheeks, taupe on her eyes and loads of mascara, with a pinky-natural pout and she was ready to go down the aisle. But! Let’s not forget that hair!!! I LOVE when my brides opt for braids! Courtney straightened her naturally corkscrew-curly hair and we did soft, smooth waves and two braids on either side that met in the back for an infinity crown braid. We topped it off from with a few fern leaves (from Bows & Arrows). Her overall look, a little Grecian, a little boho and whole lot of natural, gorgeous, goodness! Stunning images by NBarrett Photography. Enjoy!

Engaged | Vicky & Daniel with Allen Tsai Photography at the Dallas Arboretum

I love stylish couples…. and Vicky & Daniel are just that! These recent Dallas transplants are tying the knot in their native Southern California this Spring and are working with the lovely and talented Allen Tsai Photography! Their engagement shoot took place at a few of my favorite places all over town – The Dallas Arboretum, Klyde Warren Park and Nasher Sculpture Center.

1391922_747889705235742_946446457_n-1 1560545_747889721902407_1366252115_n 1970850_747889825235730_74058377_n 155186_747889881902391_1563195624_n 1947559_747889808569065_1643326474_n

Vicky’s makeup is defined but classic and soft in a palette of cool grey and pinks, and I used a 1-inch barrel curling iron to give her shoulder length hair tons of voluminous curls and pinned it up for a side-swept updo. (style note :: the gold & pink gown she is wearing … totally couture! The fabric was imported from France and the gown was hand sewn just for her – so glam!

Thania’s Dallas engagement shoot with Havi Frost Photography and Jen Rios Design {hair and makeup}

28 Jan

I am loving these gorgeous engagement photos taken a few weeks ago by the ever-talented and lovely Havi Frost Photography. Thania & Miguel wanted a duel-setting shoot; something sweet and romantic and something urban and city-scape inspired. So Jen Rios Design went to work (with gorgeous floral by Wedfully Yours) in setting up two scenes at the White Rock Lake and downtown Dallas at the Meyerson Symphony Center. 

thanialovesmiguel-10008

Thani – whose chiseled cheekbones I raved over on Facebook and Instagram that day – (I’m convinced) were put on this earth just for my sculpting enjoyment – wanted flawless skin, dramatic eyes and structured, but not-too-perfect curls for their shoot. Enjoy!

WED :: Mila’s wedding day beauty with Feather & Twine Photography at Piazza in the Village

17 Jan

Sweet Mila came to me wanting understated glamour and an elegant bridal look but most importantly, she wanted to look like herself. We kept her makeup really clean and fresh, adding a pop of color (purple!) on her eyes. We swept her dark silky hair up into a sleek chignon and sent her down the aisle to marry her prince charming. She treated her maid-of-honor to a day of beauty too! Enjoy!

My favorite thing about this image? Mila came to me for an appointment around 8:30AM on her wedding day … and here she is, cake cutting, late night and all, still looking just as flawless as when she left my chair early that morning!

Lauren’s classic glamour Bridal Portraits | Brandi Burkett Photography

12 Dec

1450101_10151876092915777_1779361449_n

Stop. First, can I please just point out this bride’s perfectly porcelain skin, gorgeous black hair and the most ladylike red lip I’ve ever seen a bride pull off? Lauren is the epitome of classic glam and grace. Not to mention these photos were taken by the ever-lovely, dream-to-work-with, wildly-talented Brandi Burkett of Brandi Burkett Photography. It all reminds me of a modern approach to Gone with the Wind, no? That unmistakeable southern charm it just too pretty. Enjoy!

I’ve known this gorgeous gal since we were much younger …. Lauren’s the little sister of one of my very best friends, the mayor’s daughter and the sweetest gem you’ll ever meet. We even grew up on the same street together, (I’ve spent more time of the Dean family back porch than I can account for!) so I was beyond thrilled when she asked me to do her wedding! (insert shameless plug here  —–> I also planned her wedding too, through my sister company Life is Pretty, LLC).
