The most romantic photoshoot with The Bird and the Bear looks, as it should, like a fairytale! My inspiration for the makeup was the deep berry colors of winter. I wanted the lips to be dark without looking goth, so I used Diva, a reddish burgandy matte from MAC that looks amazing with Katelyn's pale skin and dark hair. I kept her eye makeup pretty simple but really went for it with her lashes using my new obsession-Velvet Noir Major Volume Mascara from Marc Jacobs. For Katelyn's hair, I wanted to show off the cool ombre she has going on, so I really worked the texture to create a voluminous and effortless-looking style with a nod to the 1920s.
Katelyn, along with her husband Evan, was our model and is also our former bride! Check out Evan and Katelyn's website for a look at their fun collaboration with West Elm). You can't have a fairtyle without flowers, and Whim Hospitality blew my mind a bit with Katelyn's bouquet. And there is no other venue as epic as Canyonwood Ridge at night.
