Michelle’s Wedding Highlights

Michelle was such a fun bride to work with. Turns out we had even gone to the same high school and were on the same dance team, some years apart. Right from her engagement photo shoot I knew she was what we call, “bling bling” when she chose the most glamorous set of lashes I carry AND glitter!

This proved true on her wedding day where I met her in the presidential suite of the Intercontinental. The same suite president Obama stayed in during his visit to San Francisco. It was one of the most amazing suites I’ve been in with floor to ceiling glass windows. While I did her makeup in the upstairs bedroom with it’s two bathrooms, we enjoyed gourmet chocolate dipped strawberries and champagne.

I’d like to share some pictures from her wedding day, which she can only describe as “platinum hood!” Taken by the talented F.C.Wong

Getting ready!

A toast!

I think this picture captures her perfectly 🙂

The day after the wedding, Michelle left on my facebook wall,

” Hey lowellite! Thanks for my makeup! It stayed on all nite. Can’t say much for my hair…the wind blew it all out! I knew I should of have let u do it!”

I have a special setting technique that helps loose curls stay in all day, through heat and wind!

This is Michelle’s wonderful review on my yelp account,

“Van did my makeup for my engagement pictures and wedding. I didn’t have to do a long trial b/c she got the look I was going for on the first try! Yay! She uses an airbrush applicator and my makeup stayed on all night long! She made sure I was happy with my look and supplied me with touch up lipstick for the rest of the night. She also did my hair and my curls stayed in place the whole night as well! Van is awesome!”
