Brittany + Chris
Brittany found me through her wedding venue, Long Hollow Gardens, in Goodlettsville, TN. She wanted to set up a trial run before booking with me and after hearing her experience, I don't blame her. We got to chatting and I found out that she and her fiance met on Chat Roulette and I love that more and more couples of success stories from dating apps. Personally, I have been off the dating market since 2007 and I could NOT imagine trying to date with all these apps in 2022.
Brittany was very specific about her makeup look. She had a trial run done with someone at the salon where she gets her hair cut/colored -- because if you can't get a two-fer, then why not -- but based on the pictures she showed me, the makeup artist knew nothing about color theory. Brittany's skin looked so grey and washed out, almost. She regularly tans and wanted to look like a bronzed goddess on her big day.

Due to the unfortunate circumstances of this stupid pandemic, Brittany and Chris had to postpone their Nashville wedding to August 2021. From what I saw online, they still had a smaller wedding back home in upstate New York so that older relatives could attend, but they still dreamed of their Nashville ceremony. So they got married in 2020, but still made a big ceremony and party out of it in 2021.
We made a couple of tweaks to Brittany's hairstyle. She wanted more effortless movement in her half-up with even a little bit of Viking influence to it with braids and twists versus her more poised half-up with did at her trial run. Sometimes you don't know what feels right on you until you try it out, so I get it.
