Planning a wedding is an emotional and stressful life event.  We want so many people to share our joy and happiness with us.  Like many planning couples the story of Kelly & Angela is the same.  Today we bring you the story of Kelly & Angela a destination wedding couple from Vancouver,BC.

Quote from their wedding blog
Feb 2013 to Oct 2014-Planning commences for the event of the YEAR! The wedding! The wedding that everyone wanted to come to and see “two chicks” get hitched. What started as a 150 person local wedding on Granville Island to a rustic 80 person event at the family cabin to a quick getaway to the Vancouver Island….the final decision was made when Nevada legalized same sex unions. They jumped at the opportunity and decided to elope with just close friends and family by their side in Las Vegas.

It all began with friendship and workplace camaraderie in the Surrey Emergency Dept 6 1/2 years ago.  Their friendship developed over attending numerous after hour events, a mini vacation to Penticton and working long night shifts together.  Over the years they traveled to many cities together; Las Vegas, New Orleans, Memphis, Nashville and Los Angeles to name a few.  They renovated a house to build a place to call home together, experienced joy and hardships together and discovered how easy it was to love and be loved.

Which brings us to today! Makeup in the 702 had the pleasure of being a small part of this love story and we are so grateful to have met this wonderful couple. No one can express their experience with us better than those we have had the pleasure of working with. Here’s an excerpt from a review submitted by Angela & Kelly regarding their experience with the Makeup in the 702 team.

WOW!!! I don’t know where to begin. I choose Makeup in the 702 for my wedding day as I loved their portfolio as well as their amazing competitive rates. Megan was very professional from the start to end. The communication was amazing. As a destination bride from Vancouver BC, I was unable to do a trial run for hair and makeup…So I had a lot riding on them! They were my first vendors of the day and not going to lie, my heart was racing. I opened the door to my hotel room and to my surprise I was greeted by Megan, Crystal and Kiera (I was only expecting Crystal and Kiera). Megan immediately calmed my nerves but telling me she “couldn’t miss being a part of my special day”…From that point on I felt like a princess. Having an extra stylist was great as my sister decided last minute to get her hair done….She was ecstatic and loved the final product. I can’t stress enough how amazing these women were, they never made me feel rushed, they were so pleasant and engaging to be around.

These ladies are the real deal!!!! They know their stuff and work with your chosen look for the day. I’ve had my hair and makeup done before and never have I looked so good. Rates are amazing!!!! Pricing was all inclusive and it  included full makeup application, false lashes, hair styling, extensions and my own take away lipstick….not to forget my partner had her makeup done too all for that price.

I could go on and on and on! Thank you ladies for making us look amazing on my special day…….

Thank you Kelly & Angela for choosing us to be a part of your day!  We wish you a lifetime of happiness and joy!  Cheers and congratulations!

Persistence And Charm Gave Love A Chance

Today it’s our great pleasure to share the love story of Marco and Jueen with you.  It’s so amazing to me each and every day that we get to be a part of so many lives and so much joy.

“I think happiness is what makes you pretty. Period. Happy people are beautiful. They become like a mirror and they reflect that happiness.” – Drew Barrymore

It’s the happy people like Marco and Jueen that make our work so rewarding…..now for their story.

JM_1413“Our love story began back in 2010 when my husband, Marco, and I started working in P.F. Changs China Bistro. I had just made a dramatic job change to do something non-design related. He had just left a restaurant on the strip. It’s funny because when Marco first asked me out on a date, I said no. He thought I was playing hard to get but in reality I just wasn’t ready to date. With his persistence and charm I ended up giving him a chance. Technically our first date involved a horror movie which is ironic because we rarely ever watch them now. Fast forward almost 5 years later, we have a house together, have gotten married, and also became parents to our beautiful baby girl Camila, who’s now almost 4 months.

Marco and I really enjoy cooking together which is our favorite pass time. We love to make our food taste and look beautiful on the plate. Our dream one day is to open up our own place together and we are working towards it. Aside from that, Marco is a personal trainer by day, works in a Brazilian restaurant by night and I’m a portrait photographer. We are passionate about what we do and it shows.

You know you have a good relationship with your significant other when it’s so easy to be with them. We connect on the level that shocks me and we can read each other so well it’s almost creepy. Day in and day out, it’s never a battle and we also don’t have many debates or arguments. In addition, we are so thankful and grateful to have each other and all that is around us. Living together has taught me how to really care for someone. Not only must you be considerate of their things, understand give-and-take, and be kind to one another, you become a team that always strives to win. I truly believe that’s what we do.”

Once in awhile, Right in the middle of an ordinary life, Love gives us a fairy tale.

This weeks blog post is pretty near and dear to my heart. My step son Jace has asked my very dear friend Kylie to marry her. The wedding is set for September 19th In Pensacola Florida where they both grew up. I’ve know both these amazing hipsters since before I married my own husband TJ, Jace’s dad.

Picture6

Let’s rewind 10 years before Kylie was 21 and as Jace was just moving to Las Vegas. Even back then I knew these 2 had an electric relationship with honor, trust and complete and utter love for each other.  These two have been together longer as boyfriend and girlfriend than many marriages last- now that says something right there. They’ve withstood 3000 miles distance, job changes, moves and of course the everyday things that happen in life. All the while staying very committed to each other with a love that is so recognizable that anyone could see.

For years my husband and I wondered if they would “ever get married”.  Even when asked Jace and Kylie would say- were great just the way we are and it’s true they were perfect just as they were. Throughout the years together they’ve built a home, raised 3 of the cutest pitbulls you’ll ever meet and supported each other careers and nurtured each other to the fine young adults they are today. Jace describes themselves as “modern hippies”.

Jace own’s more VW’s than I can count and recently Kylie is on the VW kick with the purchase of her new car.  On any given day you’ll find these 2 soaking up everything las Vegas has to offer on the music and art scene with a craft beer of choice or an Old Style in their hand. They love to be down town and never miss a First Friday.  I can honestly say I’ve never met anyone, much less 2 people that soak up so much of life and live it to the fullest each and every day.

Well now the day has finally come this very commitment couple decided to take it to the next step. Marriage… I’m delighted to share with you the images from their engagement session with Taylored Memories Photo taken right here in Downtown Las Vegas in the Arts District and the Arts Factory. The love and joy they share jumps out in these photos.

Congratulations to my son Jace and so excited to call my dear friend Kylie daughter. You both have made a great choice and we are all looking forward to witnessing the I do’s… yes I’m crying even writing this.

Jocelyn & Lance “Once Love, Love forever”

Jocelyn and LanceIn today’s busy world sometimes brides and grooms have to get a little creative with their plans to accommodate the hectic schedules of their loved ones.  Today we’re happy to share with you the story of Jocelyn & Lance a mid December dream come true.

Having had the joy of meeting Jocelyn in September for their engagement shoot and makeup trial Makeup In The 702 was excited to be on location with the beautiful bride Jocelyn at the Elara on the day of their ceremony.  We enjoyed double the blessings with this happy couple since they had to double up on the days to include all of their loved ones.  We were blessed with being able to work with Jocelyn the next day at the beautiful Red Rock Resort.
Without further adieu we are happy to share with you the love story of Jocelyn & Lance

Jocelyn and Lance met at the Greater Philadelphia Sushi and Sake Meetup Group. Both were recent transplants to the Philly area. Both happened to see an email saying that this highly popular meetup had available seats for dinner at a local sushi place. Both went to the sushi dinner mostly looking to make new friends and didn’t necessarily expect to find love. In fact, Jocelyn wasn’t looking at all! After meeting a few times, Jocelyn and Lance realized they had a lot in common, enthusiasts of digital photography (though Nikon and Canon rivals), foodies, but also both lovers of being active outdoors with hiking, cycling, jogging, and rollerblading. Realizing that “when you know, you know” like Lance’s aunt liked to say, life quickly fell comfortably into place for the two of them and talk of a future life together began.

The wedding was planned for December, considering 12/13/14 or 12/14/14. Jocelyn’s father said that 12/13/14 would be the most auspicious date since in Chinese, certain numbers are lucky numbers because of what the number sounds like. So when the numbers 121314 are read individually, the numbers take on the meaning of “once love, love forever”, a very popular date for those of Chinese heritage. The only problem was that this date was extremely popular, particularly in a city like Vegas. So the perfect alternative was to have a small official casual wedding with family on 12/13/14 and a more formal ceremony and reception the next day. Double the celebration and double the happiness.

 

Congratulations and best wishes for a lifetime of happiness from all of us at Makeup In The 702
