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.

Leave the details to Paulina

October 16, 2015

Comments Closed

Planning a wedding is largely about the details and the logistics whether your planning a small garden event or a destination wedding from abroad working with a professional planner can greatly reduce the anxiety of planning the most exciting day of your life. Today we have the pleasure of introducing you to a vendor we love, Paulina Clute. Originally from New Orleans she now calls Las Vegas her home, her “Mardis Gras” flair is a perfect fit for our city! So without further adieu…..please meet Paulina Clute, of Paulina Clute Events, LLC.

Hey Y’all, I’m Paulina…the ringleader behind Paulina Clute Events, LLC. I first fell in love with the idea of being a wedding planner at 17. I assisted a high-end wedding planner on a huge wedding in New Orleans, where I grew up. I was hooked. Though it took me until last year to officially launch my own business, it’s really always been my passion. Since then, we’ve figured out some great ways of tailoring our services to exactly what our clients are in need of. We offer all customized planning packages. From a full service planning experience, to a day of coordination package, there really is an option to fit everyone’s needs and budget. In this last year, I’ve been privileged to have Makeup in the 702 as part of my vendor team on numerous occasions. On a day where there are so many things to make sure are perfect, it’s a treat to not have to worry about all the girls hair and makeup. The artists will be early, my clients needs will be met, and the end result will be flawless.
What would you like a planning couple to know about your business?
Planning a wedding is an exciting and stressful time for the newly engaged. There are so many avenues to be navigated. Having someone on your side to walk you through the process is invaluable. A lot of couples see a wedding planner as an unnecessary expense or luxury. In my opinion, that couldn’t be further from the truth. Though you may not need/want a wedding planner to be there at every turn, at minimum, a day of coordinator will ensure that all the details you’ve planned out over the last year are executed.
What are the benefits of using your service?
There are so many benefits to hiring a wedding planner or day of coordinator. First of all, if you’ve started the planning process, you know there are a million details. You’ll probably find yourself making tons of phone calls, sending email after email, scheduling appointments and meetings, and worrying if you’re making the right decisions. That all ends once a wedding planner steps in. With our complete wedding planning package, you only call, email, or text me. I handle all of the back and worth communication. The middleman is cut out. Appointments and meetings are scheduled to your convenience….after all, you are the customer. We’re here to give you advice. To help you choose the right photographer to fit your style, the right florist to create the bouquet you’ve always dreamed of, and the perfect DJ for your kind of party. Because this is what we do week in and week out, we know what vendors are going to be best for you. It’s more than just seeing a great photo online and deciding on a photographer. We see behind the scenes. Is this photographer intrusive during the ceremony? How quickly and organized do they get the family and group photos done? Maybe it’s helping you word your invitations because your parents are divorced? Or calling the guest that RSVP’d a plus one, when that wasn’t indicated on the invitation. We’re here to help you at every turn. To make sure the correct song is played when it’s supposed to be. To ensure your new husband has a Jack and Coke in hand. To remind the caterer that Julie at table 5 has a gluten allergy. All the details that you’ve thought about while laying in bed at night, your wedding planner is there to make sure doesn’t get overlooked or forgotten.
It must be quite a challenge to come up with new ideas, Where do you find your inspiration?
After every wedding is wrapped, I sit down and have a meeting with myself. I go over the day. What were the highlights? What worked best? Where can we improve? It really is my last event that inspires to push through and raise the bar for the next one. There is such high I feel when I finally get in my car (at whatever ungodly hour it might be) after a wedding and think, “I just helped make all of their dreams come true! Now let’s do it again, only better!” I also love the fresh ideas being brought to me by my new clients. I love hearing my clients vision, then sitting down and researching how to make it come to life. I’ll find myself laying in bed at night thinking of a creative new floor plan, then next thing you know I’m on my phone pulling up diagrams to see if it will work. It’s so fun to be able to incorporate my past experiences with new clients dreams…and make them come to life!



Is there anything else you would like to share with our readers today?
As you begin the wedding planning journey, please don’t forget what it’s all about. Of course, you want this day to be more than you’ve ever dreamed of, to be the best day of your life…but you must remember the reason you’re doing this. The ultimate goal; that is to commit your life to your partner, to begin your life with your soul mate, beyond that, you’re just throwing a great party!

Thank you so much for spending some time with us today Paulina! Please take a moment to visit Puaulina Clute Events online at www.PaulinaCluteEvents.com learn more about the amazing services she provides.

Destination Vegas Tips from A Bride

October 9, 2015
/ / /
Comments Closed

Well here we are, one year later from one of our favorite couples ever. Sarah started following us Facebook more than a year from her wedding date and saw all of our before and after posts and 5 star reviews. Of course this makes anyone even more excited for their own wedding day. Even her mom and friends started following us to- by the time the day came we all felt like we were long lost friends reuniting.
Fast forward to the current date and we celebrate Sarah & Stephen’s 1 year anniversary. We took a moment to catch up with the happy couple to see what they’ve been doing.

Hi Megan!
Thanks so much for your lovely message!
We had such an amazing day with 30 of our fellow Brits, partying up and down The Strip on an open top double decker bus with Elvis after our ceremony and reception and Cili Restaurant.
The first year has been amazing and magical!
We had a fantastic two weeks honeymoon in Mexico and are excited to come back to Vegas this weekend to celebrate our 1st Wedding Anniversary!
Thanks so much for being part of our day! Your girls really took care of us and your work was fantastic!
Sending lots of love, Sarah & Stephen O’Doherty xxx
Here are a few tips from Sarah for other destination brides.
“Do your research well to trust the people doing the planning for you, and don’t get stressed or fussed at the small details of the wedding. They won’t matter. Making memories away with your loved ones is way more important than making sure any chair covers match the bridesmaids”
“The only thing I wish I did different was have a different dress to change into late at night. 10 hours in a princess dress on the Las Vegas strip took its toll.  I defiantly needed a shorter party dress for the night. LOL”
“The one thing I wouldn’t change is the venue. Cili restaurant at Bali Hai was a total paradise. The staff, services and scenery were all unbeatable. And of course having Makeup in the 702 there for me and my family” xoxo
Happy Anniversary Sarah & Stephen, we hope to see you when you visit Las Vegas again!

Bridal Blemish 101

Doesn’t it always seem that we get a blemish at the very WORST time!  Here’s an email I received from a panic stricken bride…
From A Bride:
Hi Megan,
We have an problem! I had a big pimple just under my cheek about two days ago and it’s quite noticeable still. As if that’s not enough I noticed I had some nasty cold sore on my bottom lip corner coming up today. As I’m sure you can imagine it’s a total nightmare 🙁 I just would like to give you a head up and maybe you could rally the message to the makeup lady. I have no idea how much better / worse they are going to get. I just hope she has some tricks up her sleeves and do her magic on the day of. Though I do realize it’s unreasonable to expect a total coverage of the problem area 🙁
Right now I’m applying Abreva and Herpcin L for the cold sore and not doing much for the zit to avoid even more swelling. If you know any other ways to mange them either right now or the night before, I would be the most happy to learn
Thank you so much!

Ok, so let’s talk about how to help.
Please take a deep breath and exhale……
First please note that both the blemish and cold sore are brought on by stress, environment and hormones. Sounds like all 3 could be a factor here. We are just just a short while from your wedding, so let’s not be to aggressive in treating them, but take more of a mild approach.

First, keep your hands off???? Bacteria on your fingers will only exuberant the problem. Second, use Neosporin on both areas several times a day. It’s hydrating, bacteria fighting and of course healing properties will work wonders in a few short amount of time. Be relentless with reapplication- remember- hands off. Second, the best way to cleanse your body is water. Drink as much as humanly possible in the next few days- stay away from coffee and alcohol and if you must have, limit the amount. Water will flush your system and of course help to heal your biggest organ- your skin.
Let’s talk about the day of. Please know that we would never emphasize any issues that you are having, but note that texture is texture. take a look at the wall next to you- see the texture. I can paint that wall any color. Blue, black or purple, but the texture will still come through. It’s imperative that you do not pick and cause a soar, dryness or extra texture in those areas.


I know all of this tips will help.

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!

NARS Cosmetics- Product Review from Makeup In The 702

August 21, 2015
/ / /
Comments Closed

We love new stuff here at Makeup In The 702 so when we were asked to take the new Audacious mascara from NARS Cosmetics for a spin we gladly accepted the invitation.

We put the new Audacious mascara  to the test over a 2 week period of time, typically during a 15 hour work day in the extreme Las Vegas temperatures.

Our findings!  We found the handle to be extremely lightweight and easy to get up close and personal with the lash line. Simply wiggling the wand back and forth for the first coat and then and upward motion for the second coat. The product itself dried quickly which was important to us so the tips of the lashes did not place mascara on the lid we just put eye-shadow on!

The end result- this mascara did in fact make good on it’s claims. It was lightweight and long-wearing.  Still in the testing phase is just how long the product stays fresh day to day and how long it will be before we need to replace the tube. We’ll keep you posted on those results.

About NARS Cosmetics

NARS-Audacious-Mascara-6-700x525NARS Cosmetics is a Shiseido-owned cosmetics and skin care company founded by François Nars, make-up artist and photographer. The cosmetics line began with twelve lipsticks sold at Barneys New York.

We are so lucky to have a NARS Pro store at the Forum Shops here in Las Vegas. And even more lucky to have PRO products not sold in department stores at our fingertips. As an artist we continue to educate ourselves and test products before adding them to our arsenal of products in our kits. This month NARS launched a new mascara- Audacious. Personally and professionally I feel mascara is one of the keys to a long lasting look. We all need our mascara to not smudge under eye, glide on to the lashes effortlessly and of course not flake.

Company Claim:

Picture1Intensity for the making. Control for the taking. From instant definition to blindsiding impact, every layer multiplies. Amplifies. Mesmerizes.

Designed with over 200 molded bristles and lengthening hooks, NARS’ lash-catching brush evenly grips and coats lashes from roots to tips. Simultaneously separates, lengthens, and amplifies. Its tapered tip finishes off the inner and outer reaches of your imagination, while enhancing lower lashes.
An extraordinary balance of suppleness with staying power, this uniquely fluid first-to-market formula offers extreme build-ability. Lightweight. Long-wearing.

Don’t forget this weekend is the Bridal Spectacular. August 21 & 22nd as Cashman Center stop by and see us in booth #533!

Day 3 Today is the final day. Each of the 50 contestants knows this is it and by evenings end the winner will be announced. I arrived at the South Point Hotel super early, while waiting downstairs prior to going up to Angelina’s room I was as nervous for all these girls as they were. One by one they pass me, some with curl sets, some with no makeup some with full makeup each giggling with excitement as they ride up the elevator to head to their prospective rooms to get ready. In just a short time the final 15 would be announced and then the winner, finally my team and I go up as well.

Here is the final days look for Angelina.

“It’s been a great experience to be at the national pageant this year. All we are ever expected to do in this life is our best and that’s what I did. I gave this opportunity all I had to give and I although I didn’t walk away with a top spot or title, I did walk away with much joy and gratitude to have been able to stand among an outstanding group of women. It has truly been an honor!”

Although Mrs.North Dakota did not win Mrs. United States she will always hold the crown in our eyes. Thank you so much for asking us to be such an amazing experience with you.

Congratulations to Mrs. Texas! You’ll do us all proud!
