Beautiful wedding at Cedar Springs Pavilion Troy, OH
Bride putting wedding jewelry onBridal makeup with wispy lashesMother of bride zipping the brideBridal smokey eye makeup and lashesMakeup artist doing brideBride writing letter to the groomHair and Makeup for Nashville, TN Bride

From high school sweethearts to man and wife;  Is that out of a romance novel or is that real life?  Real life for these two!  I had the pleasure of meeting Abigail through a referral from a previous bride, and she knew what she wanted from the start! Clean and classic, with a hint of glam.  Michelle and I had a lot of fun glamming up the bride and mother of the bride; as they have very different styles!  Both are the epitome of femininity; and I would consider their looks to be some of my favorites.  Mrs. Day, the mom of the bride, went for a little spunk with her shoulder length ‘do and smokey eye; while Abigail went for classic, All American bridal glam.  They gave us an idea of their visions, but ultimately, left it up to Michelle and me to create their looks for such an unforgettable day!  The trust and confidence that your brides and their families invests in you is the best feeling.  Thank you Mrs. Tuck and Mrs. Day for sharing such a special moment of your lives with us!  Abigail and her mother were the ideal clients, and definitely sums up what a Shear Hotness bridal party is:  Sugar and Spice and everything nice!
