Christy Got Married!

February 27th, 2011

Last weekend I did a wedding that took me back to my childhood.  When I was a little girl I used to play with my Barbie dolls all the time. And of course I loved to  dress up and prepare Barbie for her wedding . I guess the idea for The Blushing Bride Cosmetics started way back then!

Fast forward several decades and along comes my latest bride, Christy. She was referred to me from a family that I have had the pleasure of doing many weddings with. When we finally got to meet several weeks ago I discovered that she is in fact a living, breathing, life-size Barbie doll. Long blond hair, beautiful blue eyes, a perfect petite body and a killer smile. Mattel could not have done a better job!

So, her beautiful outdoor wedding took place pool side at the Hyatt Pier 66 in Ft. Lauderdale. The weather was perfect, as was the hotel staff. I had the pleasure of doing the makeup for the bride, her mother, her mother-in-law, and two of her attendants. They had Pandora playing a Katy Perry station as background music, and the day flew by. The entire time I felt just like when I was a  little girl playing with my Barbies. It’s great when you can play at work!
