Being a makeup artist is a dream job. Having your work featured in Martha Stewart Weddings is a dream...and this past fall I was featured in Martha Stewart Weddings! Larkin and Eric's absolutely stunning wedding at Blackberry Farms was featured in an 8-page spread in the November 2016 issue of Martha Weddings. And let me tell you, Martha picked an amazing one to feature.
This wedding was the perfect marriage of bridal simplicity and luxe detail. It was like a fairytale wedding hidden in the woods at Blackberry Farm. Everything about it felt just perfectly exquisite and celestial. Even Larkin's makeup - she wanted her makeup to be "ethereal," like a "woodland fairy."
The flowers were magical. I don't know any other way to describe them. Amy Osaba made them just come to LIFE.
One of the most breathtaking moments of the day was when I saw Larkin step out in her dress, designed by Pnina Tornai. I remember actually catching my breath when I saw her in it. It was positively the most striking wedding dress I had ever laid eyes on. The exquisite beading and the plunging back with its dramatic detail...it was otherworldly.
One of my favorite things about working on weddings at Blackberry Farm is how so many of the brides that come there hire the most talented creatives. They hire us to do what we do best, which means they don't usually control too much of the process, so everyone's creativity is just flowing and it all culminates in this incredible event. I love that. And Blackberry Farm itself is such a stunning venue, from the natural landscape to the animals meandering around on the farm, to every detail being top notch...it's the ultimate luxury mountain venue.
Enjoy this peek into the wedding!
