The morning of the wedding Marissa scheduled a make-up session at a place in the city and since her photographer wasn’t coming until Noon to the venue I got to be her “Getting ready” wedding photographer! I was so excited to pretend, but luckily I have a professional camera and it was nice to get to use it! First up was the Starbucks Bride shot…..
I like pictures of the details and I will post all my photos on Facebook at the end of the week but here it just a few…
She makes the funniest faces while having her make-up done…. I will let you in on a secret, Marissa didn’t like her make-up AT ALL so…. I had the pleasure of doing her make-up and my Moms for the wedding! I was beaming at how pretty they looked and how I made them look that way!
I thought Marissa looked stunning but I knew exactly what she wanted and how to make it better, when I was finished she loved it!
Marissa and Ryan made these cute signs to direct wedding guests…..
And this is the GRAND entrance to the venue, so pretty and although it did rain ALL day… the sun literally came out 1 hour before the ceremony! Praise the lord!
This is the walk up to Southwind Hills, I wish this had been around when I got married! ha
My my pledge sister Saradee makes cookies that are works or art and I had her make some custom wedding day cookies to match the wedding as a surprise for Marissa and the bridesmaids! Everyone loved them and Saradee is amazing!!!
I don’t have any pictures of us all in our robes but Marissa provided us to get ready in! The venue had a beauty shop themed Bridal room for us all to get ready in which was fun! The guys had a man cave on the 3rd floor with pool, shuffle board and TV’s!! The chef created special lunch menus for us girls and then the guys while we were getting ready! Something fun I did was create a special wedding day playlist that the venue played on the intercom all day for us… even the guys LOVED it!! Here it is…..
