Okay I was so excited to get asked to be a part of Mike and Erins big day!! I have known Mike for years so when his now wife approached me I was ecstatic!!
Mike and I knew eachother way back when we were really athletic and sprint kayaking and always dressed in spandex so it was nice to be a part of his day and see the lovely photos of the two of them all dressed up!
I don’t think he could have picked a better match as Erin is such a gorgeous person both inside and out!
Mike and Erin got married at Carl’s catering in Brampton their hair was done at an extremely cute salon called Erin Melinda Hair studio which is located in Pickering. Photography was done by Photography by Rowen Make up done by Moi (Bride, Bridal party and Mother of the Groom; Mike didn’t let me do his unfortunately). All make up was airbrushed with my favourite brand Kett Cosmetics. If you wish to know more about airbrushing you can ask me or you can always check out Kett.
Below are a few photos of their day for you to look at.
Erin thank you so much for letting me be a part of your day, it was great to hang out with you and the girls!! I am so happy for the two of you as you clearly are a perfect match!!
It has been an extremely long time since I wrote my last blog. I have lots of catching up to do!
I am going to start with Joanna and her amazing family!! Joanna lives in Australia with the core of her family being here in the GTA.
Her and her now husband Mark got married at the gorgeous Deer Creek Golf Course in Ajax. This is a gorgeous venue if you guys have not seen it make sure to click the link and check it out!
Everyone got ready at their parents house in Port Perry and I had a blast doing the make up for them. I was honoured to finally meet Joanna as her sister has been a big part of my life for the past few years.
This English family definitely knows how to have a good time and I had many laughs while hanging out with them and Joanna was kind enough to bring me back a dairy milk vegemite chocolate bar…really it wasn’t as bad as i thought it was going to be!
The ladies were all airbrushed and their make up was fairly natural. Their hair was done by Christina LeBlanc who now owns her own salon called the Hairitage House click the link to go to her facebook page.
Please take a look at this gorgeous day. All photos were done by Lindsay Nemeth Photography
On November 21st I was lucky to be apart of Steph’s big day! Steph and Adam got married at the Kingbridge Centre in King City. I have never been to this venue before and I just want to say it is gorgeous!
We all know when I blog about the makeup I do for weddings I don’t make it all about the makeup. I like for everyone reading to see everything incase you are looking for a venue or looking for a photographer.
Steph and Adam had a Christmas theme and I just thought it was such a great idea..they took pics with all the girls wearing their rain boots and it looked so great!
Their photographer was the one and only Danielle Arnold she is always so great to work with!!
I had such a great time with these girls the morning of the wedding, everything was relaxed and chill and they were such great people to hang out with.
Check out the pics from their big day!
On July 19th Zoe officially became a Pagazani!! Zoe and Jay whom I knew way back in the day through totally different worlds got married on July 19th 2014. I am so happy to have been asked to be a part of their day and help Zoe and her girls get ready!! Zoe has always been a character so it was quite fun to work with her as well as her bridesmaids who some I knew and have not seen for years. It was def an entertaining afternoon with these ladies and i was happy to hear that they had a great day!! They got married at the abilities centre in Whitby.
Please check out the pics of this gorgeous bride and handsome groom! Pictures were taken by Marc Polidoro Photography.
Congrats Zoe and Jay and I wish you all the happiness in the world!! xo
Okay so this was one of my favourite weddings I had such an amazing time with these girls I didn’t want to leave them!! It was so easy-going, and I probably laughed the entire time. Thank you ladies for asking me to be a part of your day I loved every second of it; it is refreshing to meet such great people like you and it’s what makes me love my job!!
Renee and Mandy got married on October 4th 2013 at Nestleton Waters Inn it is a gorgeous venue and by the looks of it they had an amazing day there!
Renee had told me I can take any pictures I want from her album I have to say I could not stop stealing them from her!! Their photos capture their fun personality perfectly and their love shoes through the pictures they are gorgeous! These amazing photos were done by Jeff Marchant at life creations
Please have a look as I am sure you will love them just as much as I do!!
Okay so many years ago I used to Sprint Race Kayak with a fairly (haha) cool chick. This girl was fearless (still is) I never seen her wear a lick of make up. So when Nat sent me an email about her wedding day I was so excited; I love putting make up on girls whom i know and have never seen wear make up.
I ended up knowing a few people in her party from paddling as well so it was a pretty good morning. It is always nice to see people whom you haven’t seen in such a long time and if you know Nat you know that her personality is one of those that you just can’t get enough of (even though I may not like to admit that so saying that is a big step for me :P).
The big day was in Sept and it started off pretty rainy and dreary outside I got there and Nat was walking outside with her dogs with a raincoat on but she remained positive as she KNEW she was getting married outside and there was no way she was going to change the plans of her big day!
I had a great morning and some hilarious moments and sure enough when it was time for Nat to get married the sky cleared up and it turned into a gorgeous day so she got to have her outdoor wedding that she wanted!
Nat looked absolutely stunning and I am so glad that I got to be a part of her day as well as my amazing Cousin Mia Purdy who did her wedding photos.
Please take a look at the photos and let us know what you think :)!!!
Nat thanks again and hopefully I will see you soon!!
Okay you are probably wondering what is with the title of this blog and the reasoning of it will come out in it I promise and for those of you that know her I am pretty sure you understand where it is coming from!
Alright so a few Months ago I was not only honoured to be asked to go to this wedding but I was honoured to be doing the make up for it as well. Because I was at this wedding I will probably do a little more detail than I usually do and none of it will really have anything to do with the make up not going to lie!
I have known Laura for a while now and I was so excited to be a part of her day!! I will say it was such a cool wedding party and I enjoyed every second of it!! The ceremony was stunning it was held at Trinity College everything from Lauras dress, to the church, her and her sister lighting a candle in memory of her father and of course the smile of her as she walked down the aisle everything was perfect!!
Laura did something I have never heard of and it was such an amazing idea she attached a photo of her dad to her shoes so that he could walk her down the aisle (you will see it in the photos) such a wonderful idea!
Lauras husband Bill is from the states and a huge Pittsburgh Penguins fan and Laura is obviously a huge leaf fan (I have never seen a girl so into hockey and baseball in my life)!! When the wedding party was being introduced as they walked into the hall it was so entertaining not only were they dancing but some had leaf jerseys on some had penguins jerseys on some were being “iced” all of this while dancing!! it was unreal!
Laura and Bill thank you for asking me to be a part of your day I am so happy and Laura you and your bridesmaids were amazing and as usual you looked gorgeous.
All my best 🙂
Okay so this blog is about my gorgeous cousin Mia Purdy and her Husband Darryl Smith’s amazing wedding! I have been waiting for photos of this wedding since the day of so that I could make this post!! Soo needles to say I’m excited for this post and I can’t wait to share their photos with you.
Mia and Dares wedding was it a DIY wedding they put lots of thought and effort into this and worked extremely hard to make it a perfect day!! I will not share how any of this is done you will have to just take a look at the photos!! Mia, Darryl, their families and the wedding party went up the day before and got the venue all ready for the big day. And seeing it all come together was amazing!
Okay so being in the wedding party of this one I will say when Mia first took us to the venue to see it I was in love right away with it, it couldn’t be more perfect. Then she decided to talk about bunting and all the different spots she wanted it the picture that me and the other bridesmaid had in mind well let’s just say we poked fun a bit. However my dearest Mia AMAZING job on the bunting as it honestly made the venue look unreal!!
They picked an unreal venue that I am officially obsessed with and I am sure you all will be as well when you look at the photos. They got married in Milton at Country Heritage Park. The venue was super accommodating and they honestly felt like old time friends!! It is a gorgeous Barn that actually does tractor rides around the gorgeous property (I think my nephew was on it most of the day). As you take a tour of the venue there are old barns, blacksmith stores, general stores horses it is unreal! The ceremony was upstairs in the loft area Jer (Mia’s brother) made an arch way for them and it fit in perfectly…just looked amazing!! Below on the main floor was where dinner and the big party happened afterwards! Mia is extremely creative and incorporated all the things that they loved into the look of the wedding coke bottles being one of them :).
So I’m pretty sure you can guess I did the make up for her wedding. So we woke up in the morning put our amazing robes on that Mia had bought us and I went to work!! Airbrushing of course was used and then everyone had a different look.
The photographers were amazing and fit right in with everyone perfectly! Young Hearts Photography is who took all the photos of Mia and Darryl’s day and they did an unreal job!!
Congrats to Mia who is not only my cousin but has become one of my closet friends I am so happy for you and Dare! To Dare Welcome to our family offically yet again! Love ya both!!
So usually I just show a few photos of my make up but because this was a DIY and because of my obsession with the venue there will be a few photos of everything all mixed into the slide show below.
Okay so on August 11th I got to work with a bride who is very close to my heart and I am so honoured to have been asked to do Amanda’s make up for her day! Amanda is a long time friend of about umm..about 26 years or so and I am extremely happy for her!!
Everything about the wedding was beautiful!! The ceremony and reception were at Rockway Glen Golf Course and Estate Winery and it is gorgeous there!! The ceremony was outside it rained a little bit but it actually made the ceremony even better (I’m determined it was just Alex her dad poking in to say hi and shedding a tear of how proud he is of her)!
Make up wise I did Amanda, 3 of her bridesmaids and Brian’s mother. To do these girls make up was like a treat for me here I have 4 sporty girls who I have known through sports and never seen a tad of make up on them (maybe mascara) so to see them airbrushed with lashes on was a new thing for me and I’m sure even for some of them! I had a blast doing their make up and getting to be part of the day!
Amanda and Brian I love you guys and I am so happy for the both of you! Congrats!!
Below are just a few sneak peaks of photos that I got through some of Amanda’s friends there will be more to look at later I just got too excited 🙂
I just have to share this wedding with you all!! 2 weeks ago I was honoured to be the make up artist at Nancy and Jeff’s wedding; I have known them for years and I have not seen them for an extremely long time. Not only was it amazing to catch up with them and their gorgeous bridal party it was unreal to see the venue they had picked I have never seen a bride and groom pick a venue like this and it was AMAZING! Nancy and Jeff got married at The Ganaraska Forest Centre.
If you are an outdoorsy couple looking for a venue this one is perfect just be careful to take the right route and not the off roading one like me and my lil’ kia soul did!!!
Nancy, Jeff and their families had a goal of 0 waste wedding (aka no garbage kind of wedding) they came very close to accomplishing their goal!! They produced 1/2 bag of garbage for 118 people including sleepover and Sunday breakfast. The 3 things they did are as follows
- Have a straw-less bar. No one needs to drink a classy beverage through plastic.
- Make your decor out of earthy materials. Nancy’s sister collected pine cones, twigs, fallen branches, moss, birch bark, & stones from the woods and set them beautifully together. After the event, all went back into the woods.
- Put out compost bins and recycling boxes. People want to do the right thing – give them the opportunity.
If you are interested in doing something similar to this with the no waste you can contact Larraine Roulston through www.castlecompost.com.
Nancy and her wedding parties make up was very simple and natural and i airbrushed them all as well! The two little flower girls were gorgeous and of course popped some dazzle on their lips and a little bit of blush as well :).
Please check out the photos they were done by Trevor Langdon and he did an unreal job of them!! Also click here to see an amazing video so you can see just how well it all turned out!
congratulations to an amazing newly wed couple and thank you soo much for asking me to be a part of your day! It was so nice to see faces of old friends!
