I worked with Alyssa for her destination wedding. As a destination wedding hair and makeup artist a bride’s wedding dress is a huge factor in choosing a hair style. I met Alyssa a few days before her wedding for a hair and makeup trial. During that time Alyssa showed me her wedding dress. It was a beautiful vanilla Monique Lhuillier gown. Alyssa wanted an updo and we both thought that wearing her hair up would best compliment her look. After hair and makeup was done she laid out her wedding jewellery and asked my thoughts. Not having a lot of time to spend looking for accessories Alyssa brought a few pieces she already owned.

Alyssa’s dress came with a beautiful beaded belt. She bought a jewelled hair clip to compliment it however there was something lacking with the jewellery. Seeing Alyssa’s vision gave me an idea. I assured her that I would bring something I felt would bring her vision to life.

On Alyssa’s wedding day when hair and makeup was done, dress was on and it was time to accessorize. She pulled from the selection of jewellery and decided to wear the earrings I brought. Her something borrowed came from me! It’s a wonderful memory we will always share.
