H + G = The Bucks
I remember seeing a picture of this gorgeous young lady with her softball team, who happened to have my niece as the catcher. I was instantly drawn to her beauty, while still being athletic and competitive. Hailey happens to be my niece, Payton’s, best friend; and it was only a given that I would say yes, when asked to do her bridal makeup. They have been besties for as long as I can remember; and as adults, still manages to keep their friendship a priority! No longer living in Ohio, Gunnar and Hailey are currently stationed in South Carolina, while he serves in the Marines.
On the big day, Hailey was adamant about keeping the makeup as natural as possible. Important for her and Gunnar, was that she looked like HERSELF… just a more elegant version! If you know me, “natural glam” is right up my alley; and in my personal opinion, the better option for the big day!
We kept her look classic and simple, with a touch of elegance. Neutrals and taupes were my go to’s! Hailey’s bone structure is obviously to die for, so we just enhanced it with a little highlighting and shading! Plumping Gloss from Sorella Cosmetics (shade Posh), added the finishing touch to her look… and of course, waterproof and setting products! Holy tears!
I met my niece when she was 5, so it is hard to wrap my head around the fact that they are now mothers and wives! Where is time going?! Bailey, with Awakening Photos, did an incredible job capturing the emotion, love, and respect shared between everyone in attendance. Without ever meeting Gunnar, I can tell how much he and Hailey loves one another. I can tell how much Hailey values family and friends. Most of all, I can tell just how strong the bond is between Hailey and Payton. This wedding truly was about marrying the love of your life, surrounded by those you love most! I am so thankful to have been apart of it.
Congrats on tying the knot, Gunnar and Hailey! I wish you a lifetime of happiness and love!
