Joe and Laurens Love Story

December 23, 2015
/ / /
Comments Closed

Joe and Laurens story started more than 5 years ago with a chance encounter on the streets of San Francisco and is made up of equal parts metal and magic. Lauren and her best friend took a trip all the way from London to San Francisco to see their all-time favorite band- Faith No More. As chance would have it the girls were standing in line next to Joe and a friend of his, who had also made a long distance adventure out of the concert- traveling from Atlanta. Lauren and Joe hit it off while waiting in line for tickets, the two were inseparable during the show and the rest of the weekend- they even got to meet the band after the concert!!! Picture1

They stayed in touch after their journeys back home to London and Atlanta, and it was just a few weeks later before the duo had plans to meet up for another concert in Amsterdam. Over the past 5 years Laura and Joe have taken trips to visit one another and take trips together as often as possible, and in October of 2014 Joe decided it was time to put a ring on it!!!

Lauren, your love story is almost as beautiful as the love you and Joe share. It was an absolute honor to be part of this lovely day. We are so happy for the both of you and wish you a lifetime of rocking adventure.

Chelsea Nicole Engagement Shoot

Danielle and Craig’s story began in the halls of the UNLV Architecture program when they were freshmen in 2004. They were in several classes together and team mates on various projects while they were students and from there a strong friendship grew. The pair stayed in touch via social media, but the magic really began in 2009, when Danielle came back to Las Vegas for a visit.

For their engagement photos, the incredibly talented photographer Chelsea Nicole took the duo and their adorable pit-bull terrier Shadow out to the lake bed and captured some really breathtaking shots.

Because of their shared background in design and architecture they came up with a PERFECT theme for their wedding- “BUILT ON LOVE” with accents of Lego incorporated into the wedding- how clever!!! Craig and Danielle got married in a lovely fall ceremony last month at Legends Ranch, and we cannot wait to see how it all “stacks up”…….sorry, we just had to!!

Good day mates!  Yep, you guessed it we have a story today that takes us from “the lucky country” Australia to the city that was built on luck and good fortune, Las Vegas of course!  Today we have the pleasure of introducing you to Stace and Dill who packed thier bags to elope here in the wedding capital of the world!  Now, when you are coming all the way from Australia to get hitched in Las Vegas, you know it’s going to be in fine style!  Stace and Dill were elopers who somehow convinced their near and dear ones to join them on a (long) trip to Vegas … and on the plane there, told them it was because they were getting married!
Both the bride and groom got ready at Cosmopolitan and chose to do their first look right on the Strip in front of the hotel.

Like many brides, when we first spoke with Paula about bridal hair and makeup, she shared with us that she wanted a natural and elegant look for her wedding day hair and makeup. Armed with that bit of information, her stylist Crystal, and makeup artist Kiera were able to get right to work creating her perfect look.

Paula and Leshon held their ceremony in the chapel at Canyon Ridge Christian Church. The service was absolutely beautiful, full of personal touches and intimate details. The couple’s niece surprised them with a beautiful song while the bride walked down the aisle.  The couple’s nephew also sang a song while they braided the God Knot. The event was full of prayer, singing and plenty of happy happy tears.

Following the ceremony the newlyweds and their bridal party headed over to Floyd Lamb Park for pictures. The incredibly talented photographers from Moxy Studio Photography and Cinema found a lovely, peaceful area overlooking one of the ponds that had beautiful, soft afternoon light. The bride’s bouquet, the boutonnieres and all the floral arrangements were put together by the always impressive Layers of Lovely.
After capturing some lovely moments at the park, the bridal party headed to the reception to get the party started!!! They arrived to the reception that was being held in a family member’s back yard where all their family and friends awaited them.  This was the happiest, friendliest and welcoming crowd we have met in a long time. From the moment we met Paula and the lovely ladies in her family and bridal party, to the heartfelt and personal touches in their wedding ceremony- the love and joy shared between Paula, Leshon, their family and friends was so visible and contagious to all who witnessed it.
Congratulations Paula and Leshon!!! Here’s to a life time of happiness and abundance.

Bride Beautiful In the Valley of Fire

Being a a makeup artist in the extreme heat of the Southern Nevada comes with it’s own unique challenge.  Adding our guarantee of a 15-hour water and transfer resistant services really puts us to the test!  I’d say we passed!  Today we get to share with you this beautiful real wedding from the Valley of Fire.  I just love our radiant desert and Nicky is just drop dead gorgeous!

Picture1

Your hair stylist and makeup artist are typically the first vendor a bride will interact with on their wedding day.  We have the responsibility of setting the pace for the day and we take that responsibility VERY seriously!  Not only do we set the time line for the day we often times help settle those OMG this is it feelings of nervousness.

No one can share their experience better than the bride…that being said, this is what Nicky had to say.

Nicole said… 
I had contacted Megan Payne about 6 months before my Vegas destination wedding. She was friendly and professional and promptly answered all my questions. On my big day, Kiera and Crystal showed up at 5:45 am as promised (I got married at the Valley of Fire and the time was 11:00 am). We did introductions and Crystal started on my hair. Crystal was chatty and super sweet. I showed her a picture of what I was looking for and she re-created it with ease. Next I was over to Kiera for makeup. We found that we had some things in common and ended up having a little heart to heart chat while she was doing my makeup. What a beautiful soul Kiera has. I wish her all the best in the world. My girls & I were done almost an hour earlier than promised which was nice. It gave us a bit of time to take pictures and hang out before the limo picked us up. I can’t thank Megan and the girls at Makeup in the 702 enough for starting my day off right. If you are thinking about using their services, don’t hesitate one bit. They are fantastic! I can be contacted at any time if anyone has any questions about these ladies and the services they offer. Thank you Makeup in the 702.. until our paths cross again (Perhaps for a vow re-newal one day 😉 ) Nicky B.”

 

 

We’re very proud of the services we provide and I couldn’t be more proud of my incredible team of stylists and makeup artists. This week we celebrate a very awesome milestone! 900 reviews! Thank you to each and every bride that has taken the time to share their experience with us and thank you for choosing us to be a part of your day.

Antonette & Donnie A Love Story filled with family and friends

September 4, 2015

Comments Closed

This story was originally published by our very dear friends and vendor we love “The Emerics!”  It’s the love story of Antonette & Donnie.  Their love story started with a blind date that according to Antonette went “amazingly well”  followed by a Valentines flower delivery that went “horribly wrong” but in the end made perfect!   It’s so refreshing to see truly happy people!

Planning a destination wedding always has it’s unique challenges which is why it is more important than ever to work with local professional vendors to bridge the global gap.  We truly enjoyed meeting Antonette and being a part of this gorgeous wedding at the Fireside Lounge at the Aria.  Their day was filled with lots of little details that made every nuance a memory for both the happy couple and their guests.

Please see below the original post from Jessie & Jason and all of the INCREDIBLE moments they captured.  We hope you enjoy it as much as we did!

Destination Wedding in America’s Playground

August 29, 2015

Lindsey Jones and Mike Zank hail from Auburn, New York and chose the Excalibur in Las Vegas to host their dream Vegas wedding. This couple choose Las Vegas as their city of choice to get married because of the true love and uniqueness of our city. A place where one can come and be free to choose anything they want to eat, do, stay and play.  Las Vegas is truly America’s playground.

Our love story is very unique to simplify, we usually joke and say we met on Craigslist or a bar lol.
In reality he was actually married to my next door neighbor/childhood friend. Sadly she passed away after her death I was in contact with him to be able to be around there daughter. Although there was an initial attraction to each other he never wanted me to be a rebound and they eventually moved from Michigan to Nevada. Eventually we just knew I needed to make the move too. In a way I feel it was fate that put us together we both attempted to date others and even him being gone for several years some of which we didn’t talk, yet we still ended up together.”

We know it’s met to be although we drive each other nuts and are opposite In every way when were together it just makes sense. He purposed on New Years Eve we were staying at a hotel and he got the microphone from the DJ asked and they played us our first song.

Over the past few months we’ve had a chance to get know Lindsey through Instagram and Facebook. Such a great way for Makeup in the 702 to get to know their clients prior to the wedding day. She has praised our work time and time again and now has had the opportunity to write her own words a praise on Wedding Wire through a review.

“I loved working with Megan and the girls of Make up in the 702. Megan was very easy to contact and I love how she followed up on my experience with a personal phone call. Annie and Chrystal arrived early and were very professional yet friendly. I typically don’t wear make up and my mom in particular was worried about me looking over done however Annie did an amazing job of giving me a natural look while making me look stunning at the same time. My hair was equally as amazing Crystal did a wonderful job. My only regret was that I couldn’t take the girls back with me to Michigan to do my hair and makeup for me reception.”
I asked Lindsey what words of advice she has for planning bride and simply stated she said- “Choose Makeup in the 702 if your getting married in Las Vegas, especially if it’s 115 degrees”. What a doll- we love you!

DIY Bridal Shower With A Little Help From My Friends

August 18, 2015
/ / /
Comments Closed

Picture3First and foremost I must admit I am no planner or event stylist but planning this bridal shower was so much fun I just may rethink my career. Just kidding!  I could not have done it without a little help from my friends!  Photographer Matthew Schenk from MPlace Productions, Kathryn Starrett, Catering Director, Siena Golf Club,   Tiffany Scheree Jones from Peridot Sweets, Cake and favors, Flowers from Trader Joes and of course hair and makeup for the beautiful bride to be from Makeup in the 702, favors from Williams Sonoma Designer and of course the wonderful staff at the Siena Golf Club.

A few months ago we blogged about Kylie and Jace’s engagement session with Mackenzie Taylor. Today I’m here to share Kylie’s bridal shower.

Since their wedding is in Pensacola, Florida and of course we are in the desert, I wanted to bring a bit of the beach to them with the table design and decor for the room. My inspiration for the color scheme came from the goldfish which when I started planning I knew would be the main focal point.

I accented the table with white flowers, skipping stones and orange candles to carry along the orange theme. Of course this theme was carried through on the gift table, cake table and the brunch buffet.

Throughout the planning process Kathryn kept in contact with me always willing to lend advice and a helping hand. During setup no only did she help but offered glass wear, cake stand and valuable advice to help keep my vision in line.

Thank you to all that helped make Kylie’s day as success! Stayed dialed in for Kylie & Jace’s wedding premiering in late September. Until then you can see all of us including Kylie at the Bridal Spectacular bridal show on August 21 and 22 at Cashman center. Makeup in the 702 will be sponsoring the hair and makeup for the fashion show and showing the latest trends for your wedding day. See you there booth #533!
