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.”

Creating the perfect wedding look! Wedding makeup doesn’t come easy every bride is different every venue is different and every photographer is different. Your makeup artist and hair stylist are the very first vendor you interact with on your wedding day, and we take that responsibility very seriously. We understand how vital our role is, especially for weddings, and we set the tone for the entire wedding day. But we don’t feel like that’s pressure, just an awesome responsibility.

At the risk of sounding a bit crass I have to put this out there, this is a service that you do not want to cheap out on. Hair and makeup can make or break the history of your wedding day photos. At the end of the day when the dancing is done and you’ve dashed off to begin your life anew the only thing that will be left to help you re-live the happiest day of your life are the magical moments captured in the photography.

With Las Vegas being the wedding capital of the World we meet brides from everywhere and this unpredictable desert weather can be a challenge in any season that is why highly recommend taking your makeup for a test drive so to speak and schedule a demo day.

We mentioned budget a moment ago, here’s a bonus tip for you where you can score a two-for-one. Schedule your demo the same day as your engagement shoot!

Photographers breathe a sigh of relief when they find out Makeup in the 702 is working with their Brides. Why? Because they know they’ll spend less time editing the photos which in turn means you’ll get your photos back quickly so you can share them with everyone that shared in your special day and more importantly those that were not able to attend.

To wrap our 50 shades of bridal makeup we thought we would leave you with some “Pinteresting” inspiration! P.S. Don’t forget to follow us on Pinterest and remember our guarantee! 15-hour water and transfer resistant!
