Lauren + Sean || Married || 9.16.17 || Minneapolis, MN

I had the pleasure of doing makeup for Lauren on her wedding day.  Lauren's wedding style was very timeless and traditional.  I love when skin still looks like skin with a pop of color on the lips and some fluttering lashes.  I think Lauren B Photography did an amazing job of capturing the wedding day from beginning to end with those cute behind the scenes moments!

New Years Eve Wedding || Colleen + Matthew || Married || 12.31.2016

If you're thinking about getting married on New Years Eve... you definitely should! One of my favorite pieces of the wedding day was Colleen's GOLD DIPPED WEDDING DRESS! The whole style of the wedding was cocktail glamour! A very festive and formal affair of black tuxes, elegant bridesmaid gowns, and winter greenery with gold decadence.

Rose + Anna || Married || 1.14.2017 || Duluth, Minnesota

Where do I even start with this wedding?! Well, first off, Rose and I were roomates in 2014 when I first moved to Minneapolis to become a makeup artist (....thank you, Craigslist!). Fast forward to three years later, and Rose asking me to do her and her bride-to-be's makeup for their big day. 

Of course, I emphatically said "YES!!!". I have always wanted to do makeup for a wedding with TWO BRIDES, and I couldn't think of a better couple to start with (insert happy dance).

Rose and Anna's wedding was truly one of the most fun, happy, and loving weddings I've ever been a part of.  Rose and Anna were all about making sure their guests had a wonderful experience. Plus, did I mention that I got to wear a mean fur coat since it was a winter wedding?! :)

Their first look was held at the Rathskeller, which is a hidden speakeasy in Duluth, MN. Their wedding ceremony and reception were held at Bent Paddle Brewery (also in Duluth, MN).  

Wishing these two beautiful ladies many years of happiness and love. Cheers!

XOXO,

Mel (a.k.a. your favorite Craigslist Roomy, and Makeup Artist)

Morgan + Mitch || Married || 4.29.2017 || Wisconsin

When my cousin Morgan asked me to do her wedding day makeup, I immediately said, "YES!" On the wedding day, I had a flash back of me as a child doing her makeup when we were playing dress up as kids in the bathroom.  (Now isn't that ironic and adorable)

There was so much happiness and love during Morgan and Mitch's Wedding day! I loved the rustic theme throughout the day with their venue, decor, and bridal style.  I really enjoyed how Morgan kept it soft and romantic with her champaign bridesmaid dresses and homemade floral bouquets.
