Alice found me through a Yaletown based spa I work with named Luxe Yaletown. Luxe offers both in-house and mobile beauty and relaxation services, specializing in bridal and special events. The Diamond Experience is a popular wedding package that includes a makeup and hair trial, a bridal updo and makeup application for your wedding day, a diamond and gold mani and pedi, plus, a 30 minute chair passage. A brides heaven!
I met with Alice for the first time at Luxe Yaletown, where we had her hair and makeup trial. Alice were to have a soft, loose, flowing updo, paired with a light purple smoky eye with individual false lashes. The look was soft, elegant and timeless.
Alice also booked me to style her sister’s hair which were to be pinned into an updo as well. I adore up styles! There aren’t too many occasions where you can rock a do like this, but weddings are certainly one of those times!
I arrived at Alice’s hotel where she had family and friends keeping her company. We could all feel the anxious excitement filling the room as time ticked by. I cracked a few jokes as I always do, all in the name of amusing the bride and keeping her calm. Before we knew it, the flowers were arriving, the photographer was here, and more friends were crowding in the room.
With some helping hands, Alice got into her dress and we staged a few photographs of her stood by the window. Looking stunning, of course!
It was an absolute pleasure to spend this special time with Alice, and be a part of her big day. As are all my brides, she was an absolute pleasure to get to know. I felt emotional as I saw her in her dress, about to head out into her new life.
