Gretchen was such a sweet, kind an soft spoken girl. Her intimate outdoor wedding with 50 guests totally fit her personality. We kept her hair soft and natural adding a braid for texture and playfulness. Her stunning photos were taken by With Love & Embers who I adore as well. Best of luck to Gretchen in her newlywed life : )
I always get told I look like Lacey Chabert who plays Gretchen Wieners in Mean Girls! I loved her look for this red carpet with the soft messy updo ( always my fav). Watch as I step by step recreate her look! SPOILER: I may or may not have caught my boyfriend wall twerking in this video.
We met Cathernine at the Warwick Hotel in Philly to get her ready for the big day. Her theme was black white and red , so her classic bun and red lips were a perfect match!
Do you like purple or silver? I used the too faced Return of Sexy palette to create these two looks + topped with Kiss Lashes.

Our bride Naomi told me after her wedding day she was chopping her hair off, buzz cut style. I could hardly believe her because she had beautiful hair past her shoulders and I figured she might chicken out. I asked her if she really gets the guts to do it if she would document it so I could show my viewers. It takes a real confident woman to be able to pull this look off and I think she does it flawlessly! Congrats to Naomi and bravo for being a brave lady and showing us your hair doesn’t have to define you !
Lately I have been getting a lot of inquiries from brides that don’t live in Philadelphia but are going to be getting married here. Some live in other states and I even have a few who are from out of the country! Although it may be nerve wracking to plan your wedding from far away , on the beauty front as long as you have a pretty clear idea of what you want ( after thorough Pinterest stalking) executing your idea on the wedding day isn’t a problem.
Over the past year I finally decided it was about time for me to get the hell out of the tanning beds. My whole teenage- 20′s was a combo of oil + sun plus at least 2 times a week in the beds. *cringe* When an esthetician told me my neck looked 10 years older than my face and that was the first sign of skin damage I literally quit cold turkey. I HATE being pale and after much trial an error these are my self-tanning secrets that won’t leave you orange or streaky. (more…)
