Victoria + Ben
I'm a listed vendor with Drakewood Farm in Goodlettsville and Victoria asked them for help when choosing some of her vendors. So she reached out to me earlier this year to set up a trial run for her wedding day hair and makeup. She's getting married at the end of September, but because I was pregnant with my first kiddo in August, I kept my schedule light and she was open to trialing in July.
Victoria and Ben met through friends and they were the last single people to "couple off" in their group. It's a good thing it worked out and friends didn't have to split up! Haha. They're both from Pittsburgh and moved here for school, but decided to plan their wedding in Nashville so everyone can make a mini trip out of it. It's so crazy that Nashville is becoming more and more the "IT" place to get married.
These are the makeup products I used for Victoria's gorg wedding look. For her hair, Victoria loves a real thick twisty piece as the half up style is formed. Loves some pieces framing face and not pulled back in the style.
Temptu s/b airbrush foundation in no 4 & 6 mixed (about 60/40%), ColourPop no filter concealer in Medium 20, RCMA no color powder to set, Tarte Park Ave Princess bronzer palette, Morphe cool toned blush palette, ABH Amrezy highlight, ColourPop brow pencil in Champagne Blonde, tan color from Tarte Tartelette Pro palette on the eyes and Primavera as inner highlight from ABH Modern Renaissance palette, Mac Coffee liner, mascara, Kiss Pompadour lashes, and NYX lip liner in Nude Beige topped with ColourPop luxe lipstick in Appy.
Victoria was deciding on this half-up or a low pony and I sort of convinced her to do the half-up. And the reason I did that is because ponies can look pretty gross by the end of the night depending on how hard of a partier you'll be at your reception. Lol. BUT, after thinking on the style we trialed with and getting opinions from her besties, she still want to try the pony. So I invited her back over to my in-home studio to try it out. They're both stunning!! She told me she would make her final decision on the wedding day. And what do you know, she went with the half-up style!
This was my first official wedding back from maternity leave so I made sure I didn't have all the load on myself. I brought in three other artists and I only did Victoria's hair and makeup. It was perfect for my stress and physical body labor. Below are a couple of the vendors in case you're curious. We got ready at a nearby hotel and then they all drove over to the venue.
