February was Bridal Show month at Makeup for Your Day! We kicked it off at the Carolina Inn Bridal Show in Chapel Hill!
Caroline, Abbey, Megan and I started our day by making over our two gorgeous models.
I had so much fun at this show because we come to the Carolina Inn several times a year for weddings, and it was great to see the place totally decked out. Several of our artists & stylists were able to come to the event to meet all of the brides that came out to the show.
We even got to hang out with Heidi Dawson, the director of catering for the Carolina Inn and a good friend of the Makeup for Your Day team. One of our resident stylists, Megan is getting married this year and was able to attend the show with her fiance, Anthony!
One of my favorite parts of bridal shows is the food! I don’t know that I have seen so many different food vendors in one place before! We had cake, pie, chicken and waffles on a stick, and there was even a s’mores bar. Yes.. a buffet where you could make your own s’mores. YUM! Jen and Susanne had to grab a cheerwine and donuts!
I will documenting all of the bridal shows Megan and I went to in the month of February on the blog over the next few days! Please tune in tomorrow for more!
Let me just start out by saying that if you have not picked up the brand new issue of Trendy Bride magazine, you are missing out! We are beyond thrilled and excited about the cover featuring hair and makeup by Jennifer Buenviaje for MYD, the cover story inside with to-die-for images by the uber-talented Perry Vaile and this little styled beauty below featuring photos from Jodi Miller Photography.
Our team (Kristin, N’Zinga and Jen B) collaborated with some awesome local North Carolina wedding vendors to produce this “Black, White and Cotton Candy Bright” lovely styled shoot by Kaitlin of Simply Put Vintage in downtown Raleigh. What are your favorite details in the feature and which hair/makeup style on the bride or bridesmaids do you love?
If that wasn’t enough to satisfy your appetite for gorgeous, here are some other shots from the day that we adore and just had to show off!
