When you wish upon a star

Makes no difference who you are 

Any thing you heart desires will come to you 

     We ask just about every one of our clients for their love story and photos from their wedding, and while each and every one of them is so beautiful and touching in their own way, some times we see something really special.

    Every detail of Willavy and Ry’s wedding was beautiful and elegant with a touch magic sprinkled through out the event. But what really got the water works and happy tears going over at the Makeup In The 702 Studio was the super sweet engagement Ry planned- truly something right out of the story books!!
    Willavy and Ry were spending a weekend at Disney World on July 23, 2013- one of their absolute favorite places. At the end of the evening, during the Fantasmic show, ‘When You Wish Upon a Star’ started playing across the park as Disney movies were projected on Cinderella’s castle.
    Ry was holding Willavy close when he whispered in her ear, “What do you wish for?” Willavy couldn’t help but start crying because it was such an absolutely beautiful moment. The moon was so bright in the sky, there were fireworks bursting above them as Ry pulled out the most perfect ring from his pocket and asked Willavy to make him the happiest man on earth and marry him.
4.4.7
With a magical proposal like that, how could the answer be any thing but “YES!!!!!!”

5 Star Service 

It’s a term we hear almost every day.  Airlines say they’ve got it.  You hear about it at the spa. I even saw a mobile-auto-detail van saying they had it, but what we are talking about to day is the guarantee of 5 Star Service that Makeup In The 702 provides to every single one of our clients every single day.

“Megan and her crew did an amazing job for our wedding hair and makeup last spring! She was responsive and accommodating . She even squeezed in several extra people that were not planning on getting there make up done.”

We ask the right questions to get the right information.

It can be as simple as asking our clients “What look are you going for that day?” or “Do you  have any allergies?” Other times your beauty team may need to do a bit more digging to find out what direction you want go in for your wedding hair and makeup. “Do you normally wear your hair up and pulled back?” “What celebrity do you think you look most like?”

By having open and honest conversations with our clients, where there are no wrong answers, it helps us find the right look for every one who sits in our chair to feel their most confident and beautiful on such a special day.

We genuinely share in the joy and excitement of our clients special moments.

It is no secret that every one in the Makeup In The 702 family LOVES weddings and brides. In a glitzy and glamorous city like Las Vegas there are countless opportunities for hair stylists and makeup artists to practice their craft. But being there to share in the joy and love that is present before a wedding is absolutely awe inspiring and keeps us coming back for more.

We anticipate and accommodate.

Weddings are wonderful, but boy-oh-boy can they be hectic. Our team arrives promptly, sets up our product and tools and gets the creative show started. Each of our artists and stylists has a kit fully stocked with an array of products to make sure every skin tone and completion as well as hair texture and length can be taken care of. Our ultimate goal for your wedding day hair and makeup to be sure you look and feel like you on your most beautiful day.

Sometimes your grandmother needs help deciding on a hair style that makes her feel elegant AND fun. Maybe your niece who’s set to be your flower girl, is having a total melt down because you nixed the unicorn pigtails (trust us- it’s happened). These are the things that our team deals with every day and the things that we thrive on!! We are looking forward to being part of such special moments.

 ” These were the most amazing ladies. They were highly recommended to me and gave me the best experience. These ladies came to my room on my special days and worked so well together that it didn’t even feel like I was getting my makeup and hair done at the same time. They did exactly what I asked them to do and didn’t miss a detail. Words can’t even express how beautiful I felt and how happy I was when they were done. If you are wanting to find the best ladies for your special day, these are the ladies you should pick. I couldn’t have been happier! “

A Real Love Story- Christal and Fields Copy

3-3-love-story-2

As every one knows, the Makeup In The 702 LOVES weddings and brides. We get weepy at romantic comedies and some times loose it over love stories. When getting to know the lovely Miss Christal as she planned her hair and makeup look for her wedding, she told us that she and Fields love story involved a chance meeting, long-distance, and a surprise proposal……we were hooked!!! We are so grateful she asked us to be there on her wedding day as she and Fields celebrated their love and even more so that she shared her story with us.

” Fields and Christal met on September 24, 2011 in Las Vegas Nevada at a night club at the Encore hotel called XS. Christal and her family were in Las Vegas for an end of the year bowling league while Fields, along with a bunch of his friends, came to Las Vegas to attend a wedding that never ended up happening. Christal and one of her cousins spotted two good-looking men near the bar and decided to approach them in conversation. Christal and Fields hit it off and had a great time at the night club and decided to exchange phone numbers. After only a couple hours spent at the club, their goodbyes were said. Shortly after, a 4 month friendship via cellphone, emails, and phone calls began to brew. After 4 months of realizing that this “friendship” could potentially be something more special than that, Fields asked Christal if she would be in town for his friend’s police academy graduation back in Las Vegas. Christal, without hesitation, said that she would be able to make it. They met up again in January 2012 and on their second encounter with each other shared that they actually “fell in love” with one another. From there, their story of a wonderful fairytale began.
3-3-love-story-3

Fields and Christal started their long distance relationship between Nebraska and California for 1 year and 7 months. In April 2013, Fields was promoted as a Regional Sales Director for GNC and had to transfer to Oklahoma City where the relationship between the two continued. For a total of 3 ½ years, Fields and Christal pursued such a fun-loving relationship together. On December 12, 2014, Fields visited California to spend time with Christal and the two went to the mall because Fields wanted to buy Christal a dress that “so happened” to match Fields’ suit as a birthday present. He decided that he wanted to take Christal to dinner for her “birthday” at the same spot the two enjoyed months before at Orange Hill Restaurant. Towards the end of dinner, Fields stated that he needed to use “the restroom.” Minutes after, Christal’s immediate family and friend started pouring in as Christal was on her cellphone at the dinner table and they started singing “Happy Birthday to you.” Christal was surprised and stunned to see her family and started becoming emotional. Following her immediate family were two of Fields’ friends, one from Arizona and the other from Las Vegas. Then Fields’ parents who he flew in from Nebraska followed behind and Christal started crying even more.

 

3-3-love-story-1

Last person to trail the bunch was Fields with a dozen red roses and a smile that Christal would never forget. Fields handed Christal the flowers, while the crowd was rooting the couple on, he dropped to his knee, stared at Christal’s eyes, and before the big question was popped, Christal yells out with excitement,

“Of course!”

“You’re Absolutley Glowing!!”

Hair & Makeup by: Makeup In The 702 Photo by: M Place Production

 

It’s a statement that we hear almost every single day while working with our beautiful Las Vegas bridal clients to help them prep and primp for their big day.

     While the excitement of such a special day and compete joy of getting to marry your love most certainly add to that “wedding day glow” there are a few products on the market that we know for a fact will help achieve that look not only at the wedding but every day.
    Getting that fresh, healthy, natural “glow” is something that is being discussed all over social media and beauty blogs and websites like Cosmopolitan and Vanity Fair– so of course we wanted to weigh in on how it can be applied to your wedding day makeup look
 0607845021032
In addition to giving the wearer an irresistible “Just-Got-Home-From-The-Tropics” glow, this lushious elixir offers a few other great benefits- the coconut oil and ylang-ylang give the skin a super dose of hydration and nurishment and the Polynesian vinilla and tire blossom provide a sent that is guaranteed to transport you right back to the beach
Vital-C-Group-D
When it comes to acquiring that oh-so-coveted glow thats being shown in magazines and on runways are often pointed towards shimmering cosmetics and products that have a bit of sparkle in them. This recommendation is for a product line that works on your “glow” beneath the shimmer and sparkle. VITAL C is absolutely packed with antioxidants and natural botanic ingredients that will repair, sooth and nourish your skin, giving you the best possible canvas to shine on your wedding day!!
This powder is one of our hands down favorites when it comes to creating a natural healthy look. The ultra fine mother-of-pearl particles is versatile enough to provide a touch of glowing glamor and lovely glow to fair skinned beauties and dark skinned lovelies alike.
MAC Cheeks
The description on the MAC site is “Soft coral with golden shimmer”- how fantastic is that?! The coral pigment is perfect for adding a fresh rosy glow to the cheeks and just like MAC products in general, you can be confident that it is made with high quality ingredients and will last through out the day.

A Real Love Story- Cassidy and Cody

2.11 Blog 1

Cody and Cassidy met through a mutual friend in high school in Westfield, MA. At the time, Cody was a sophomore, and Cassidy was a new freshman. They hung out with the same friends, and had gym class together, but had never formally met. A mutual friend offered to introduce the two one morning, and they started talking almost immediately. A few months later on January 31, 2009, the two agreed to make it official at a friend’s birthday party and they have been together ever since.

Since getting together eight years ago, Cody and Cassidy have grown together. They attended prom twice and were present for each others’ high school and college graduations.

They moved across the country together to start their adult lives in Las Vegas, NV in 2011, and eventually set their own roots in their first apartment in Henderson, NV in 2014. The two began raising a chihuahua puppy named Kahlua together in 2012, who is now 5 years old. They have grown up and found their paths in life together, Cody pursuing a career in Entertainment Engineering, and Cassidy pursuing one in Social Work. To them, this is just the beginning, however.

How he asked- 

1.22 blog 2
On Monday, September 15, 2014, Cody asked Cassidy to go on a date with him after class. They went out to find a nice dress for her 21st birthday, and had dinner at Naked Grill Sushi. Cody turned into Red Rock National Park on what was supposed to be the drive home, and explained that he wanted to take the scenic route home.
He brought Cassidy up to the lookout point where he instructed for her to look through the binoculars at the Las Vegas strip, which was lighting up between the mountains as the sun set. Cassidy heard a snapping noise, and turned around to see what it was, and found Cody on one knee, saying, “Cass, marry me.” She said yes, and the two talked and spent some time watching the sun set before returning home.

Cody and Cassidy got married on their 8 year dating anniversary, on Tuesday, January 31, 2017. Though they have been together for so long, they know that this is only the beginning. They look forward to starting this new chapter together, and celebrating it with their friends and family.

Sending Cassidy and Cody all the love in the world!!!!!

A Real Love Story- Catherine and Ryan

2-3-love-story-2The absolutely  charming Miss Catherine and her hunny Ryan came from Canada to celebrate there love in a classic Las Vegas wedding this past fall. When chatting with her about her wedding day hair and makeup, you could just hear the love and excitement bubbling out of her over the phone. So we asked her to share a bit of her sweet story.

Ryan and Catherine paths had crossed a few times in the past, but neither were looking for love or partnership at the time. It was when they both took a chance that they realized they were perfect for each other.
2-3-love-story-3
“Ryan’s aunt and my mom are best friends. 3 years ago they decided they wanted to set us up. We had met briefly at Ryan’s uncles 50th birthday party years prior, but I was still skeptical about going on a “blind date”. Our first date was awkward, we went to Tim Hortons for coffee, and we were both shy. About 30 minutes in Ryan said that he was ready to go. In my head I was like “this is a bad sign” but then he told me he wanted to see me again that weekend. That weekend we fell for each other, and I never believed in finding your “soul mate” but he is my soul mate. Over the past 3 years we moved in together and got 2 dogs. We are the type that can finish each other sentences. In June, Ryan and I and my best friend and her boyfriend went for a walk in Johnston Canyon. After seeing the lower and upper falls, on the walk back down Ryan proposed. It was so exciting to travel to Las Vegas to get married with our family and friends.”

And because what love story isn’t made better by adding an adorable picture of some dapper fur babies!!! These are the doggie gents that help make Catherine and Ryans love a family affair.

A Real Love Story- Ashley and Johnny

love-story-1-13-2

When we first chatted with Ashley over the phone last summer, she was just bubbling with love and excitement to celebrate her anniversary with her sweet Johnny. When she told us that they were married when they were just teenagers,  and that their love and devotion to one another has grown over the years we just had to share her sweet story.

My husband and I are traveled to Las Vegas to celebrate our 12 year anniversary and his birthday. Up until our actual anniversary on September 29th, he had no idea where we were even going on the trip. All he knew was he needed to take some time off work. He still didn’t know that once we land in Las Vegas later in the week that we took a helicopter to the Grand Canyon to go white water rafting and that I rented his dream car, a Ferrari Spider, for him to drive while we were in town. Every detail of this trip was a complete surprise for him, including the anniversary photo shoot we’re doing in the Valley of Fire where I have Makeup In The 702 for my hair and makeup services.
love-story-1-13-5I’ve known Johnny since we were kids. He lived in Northern Alabama and I grew up just outside of Memphis, TN, but because of our churches, our families were long time friends. He was actually my long distance “boyfriend” when we were in elementary school and was the first boy to ever give me flowers. Eventually our childhood “romance” fizzled out, but we always sort of kept up with one another. Sometime after I turned 16 my family decided to move to Alabama. Johnny and I reconnected at church one night, exchanged AOL Chat screen names and we’ve been together ever since. He was my saving grace at a time in my life when everything was different from what I had known and helped make my transition to life in Alabama more bearable. He quickly became my best friend and my favorite person. We had been dating for 7 months when he proposed. We were very young (people who know us really well are laughing at that understatement!) when we got engaged and were still young when we married two years later. We got married on September 25, 2004, at just 18 and 19 years old. 😉
love-story-1-13-3We were a very young married couple doing our best to build a life together. We both worked full time jobs while we put ourselves through college. We juggled work responsibilities, studying for college and a new marriage. In the midst of all of that, I decided to pursue a dream of mine and began a small business as a wedding and special event caterer. I say all the time that deciding to get married young is definitely not for everyone or the faint of heart, but I can’t imagine our life any other way. We have literally grown up together and have had each other’s back through it all.
I am rarely at a loss for words, but every time I attempt to express my love and respect for Johnny, the words always seems to allude me. He is one of the hardest working individuals I’ve ever known and has the biggest heart for helping others. I love being his wife and I love the way he loves me!
 These photos are from our 10 year anniversary shoot with Erin Lindsey Images in Huntsville, AL (where I wore my wedding dress for the first time in 10 years!).
