Liz’s Rehearsal Dinner

May 28th, 2010

Back in April I did a preview for Liz, a dynamic redhead who was planning a destination wedding in Naples, FL. Well, her wedding was two weeks ago and I was thrilled that she had me come to Naples for the weekend to do her makeup for both the rehearsal dinner and the wedding. Everything took place at LaPlaya Beach & Golf Resort, a really beautiful place to have a beach wedding. The weekend was truly filled with love, as there were 200 guests that traveled  from New York, Texas and the east coast of Florida to help celebrate.

Everything was being held outside on the beach, so I knew that I would have to prepare Liz’s skin properly or the makeup would not stand up to the heat and humidity. Luckily, The Blushing Bride Cosmetics  products are up to such a challenge. I primed her skin with The BBC’s “Velvet Veil”  to insure a smooth and long lasting makeup application. I then followed with The BBC’s Bridal Veil Foundation in “Beige 3”.  Because the foundation is oil-free and matte-finished, it left Liz’s skin looking fresh and natural all evening, even in the tropical night air.

Fabulous event planner Jean Wilco  turned on her decorating magic and created  an amazingly romantic dinner on Naples Beach, as well as tended to the blushing bride’s every need.  She is the hardest working woman in the business!

Here are a couple shots after getting ready for the Friday night dinner.
