Featured in Wedding Chicks- Green and Silver 1920's Wedding

Ok, so how GORGEOUS are the images in this shoot?!  We did this one last year, but it was published in the awesome "all things wedding" blog extraordinaire Wedding Chicks yesterday! There are so many elements that made this shoot fabulous, I'm not even sure where to start.....

The whole thing was orchestrated by the fabulous Marian Timmer, of Minted Artistry...this chica had a VISION, and I was beyond impressed at her attention to detail!  Everything was spot on historically accurate for the time period and stunningly perfect.  For the beauty and makeup perspective, I wanted to create a smoky eye that was elegant and mysterious....a bride that looked too current would totally ruin the mood of this shoot, so getting it right was crucial!  Check out these "behind the scenes" shots....

Christina - "Before"
Creating a Roaring 20's Smoky Eye.....

Makeup Test Shot while Model gets hair done

Our goal was to transform model Christina from a modern day pretty blonde to a roaring 20s glamorous bride.  I created an intense smoky eye with layers and layers of blended shadows in shades of carbon, taupe, coffee and emerald green, plus major lashes for that film noir look.  Unlike a modern day smoky eye, a 20s/30s version was more rounded in shape, and had more depth and shading than it's modern cousin.  I finished the look with plenty of liner, defined brows, flawless skin and a 20's-30's era deep burgundy lip, and then our fab hairstylist, Renn Traylor, got to work on the perfect updo to compliment the makeup, and amazing hair accessories.  And here's the finished look!

So stunning!!!  I love the full out glamour that characterized that era, don't you?  I can almost hear the soft jazz music and imagine the movie star handsome groom that's waiting for this beauty to walk down the aisle.  Want to see the ENTIRE shoot?  Click here for the full gallery of images on the Wedding Chicks feature...the florals, furniture, linens, paper goods...all of it will make you swoon!!!  One of my my favorite shoots ever, and I loved working with this fabulous vendor team....
