I was introduced to Danica via my bride Jill! They were co-workers, and when Danica saw Jill’s photos on her handheld digital camera, Danica decided to sign the contract with me right away, even though her wedding was almost a year away at the time! I thought that was awesome….! But even more crazy is I received over 11 more inquiries for Danica’s date! It’s fate I guess that we got to do Danica’s wedding! :)
I felt even more honored when I found out that Danica wanted a more glamorous look, something that I didn’t already showcased in my portfolio. She trusted in me in my artistry enough to know without a doubt (without seeing any glamorous makeups, without trying me out!) to send me the contract and retainer fee!!! During our consultation, we did a smokey eye, but Danica realized she wanted more, and on the day-of, she requested 2 sets of faux lashes, and asked Carolyn to add the hair extensions! Even my teammate Carolyn was surprised because she has never seen me do a glamorous look like this before, after working with me for so long!
Carolyn and I also ‘glammed’ up her mom (who also wore 2 sets of faux lashes!), and a few of her bridesmaids; the rest of her bridesmaids were glammed up by her family members! It was a lot of love and positive energy in the getting ready suite at the Hyatt, and….I will never forget this…! After Danica got in her dress and Christina was snapping away, I looked over to snap some photos of her with my phone, and I see Danica doing the Shimmy! This is why I call her my shimmy shimmy bride! She was feelin’ the whole thing!!! She was feeling great, and her happiness was so contagious!!! Carolyn and I left with a huge smile on our faces, all the way until we drove home! :) Just wanted to emphasize that even though a glamorous style is not ‘my’ personal style, it doesn’t mean I don’t find it beautiful or I don’t know how to execute it! What’s MOST important is that the client, the bride, looks & feels the most beautiful!!!! Brides that Shimmy = unforgettable!
