makeup artist: check! (again)

so, long story short, secured makeup artist #1 laura bateman had to move to knoxville and can’t do my wedding-day makeup.

this is where lots of planning time is a total blessing and i love even more that i can count on the wp’s and other vendors like kate and holly to come in with a fabulous suggestion. one name came across all of their lips: victoria stiles! i knew i had to meet her asap and went for a trial last week. not only did victoria and i completely hit it off chatting about makeup nonstop throughout our meeting, but the finished look was sheer perfection. i even went straight to work and got oodles of compliments from coworkers sealing the deal. i’m a firm believer that everything happens for a reason and that victoria was meant to make me big-day beautiful! so excited to work with her for upcoming engagement pics and, of course, on 11/27.

the wedding blogs came calling!

i am beyond excited to tell you that i was recently asked to guest post on one of my favorite wedding blogs, swatchbook weddings! i linked up with sw’s amazing creator, angela, through twitter after she posted an awesome lip gloss on her blog. her request marks my very first guest post outside of the glossarie and eleventwentyseven and it could not be a a better opportunity to combine my two interests as a beauty-blogger-bride-to-be! so hop on over to angela’s pretty place in the bloggerverse to read my suggestions on big day beauty.
