My First Official Wedding

As some of you know, I have started my own business doing on-site wedding hair and make-up. I will come to the church, hotel or any location of the bride’s choice to get ready on the big day. It can be the whole bridal party or just the bride. I specialize in up-do’s and I also have an airbrush machine{which I am obsessed with} and tons of fabulous makeup! What girl doesn’t love make-up??

 The first wedding I had the pleasure of doing with my new business, Do It Up, was back in the middle of February. My assistant, who’s name is also Andrea, and I head to the Westin Poinsett in downtown Greenville, SC at 8am. We have the bride, the bride’s mother, the soon-to-be mother-in-law, and 6 bridesmaids. All are getting hair and make-up done. My assistant is doing all the make-up and I did all the up-dos. Talk about baptism by fire! But it could not have gone more smoothly! We worked in sync and finished everything right on time! What a relief 🙂

The bride, Ashley, was so chill and happy! They all had on their white button up shirts with their own initials on them as the bride’s gift to them! Such a cute touch 🙂 Although there were a lot of people{girls} in one room it was just so wonderful to have all the close friends and family in one place getting ready before she said “I do”. Aside from the photographer, I feel pretty special that I get to witness moments such as, the groom sending over his gift to the bride, and when the mother of the bride opens her gift.  Oh the tears…of joy! This group was so fun to work with! Thank you Ashley for letting me “do” the honors of making everyone beautiful on your special day!

These are some pictures from Ashley’s bridal portraits and getting ready the day of the wedding!
