Welcome and Carpe Diem!

Hello and welcome to my lifestyle blog! Wedding makeup artist by day and living a fabulous life 365 days of the year. I was inspired to start this blog to share more wedding inspiration, my journey in hopes to inspire others.

I chose the name Wedding Tales and Cocktails for a few different reasons. One, “wedding tales” is all the wedding inspiration, I get to live on a daily bases with Las Vegas being the number one wedding destination in the United States and number 2 in the entire world, and of course our adventures in our newest location- San Diego!
Two, “cocktails” ( a bend of mixing up things) comes from wanting to share a little more fun in between about my journey, love of fashion, travels, and my most amazing 16 our wear kiss proof lip color! Yep, it’s real people and it does not dry out the lips!


Its time to get excited about life! Stay tuned for videos, makeup tips on the best makeup, and blog posts on “How to Pack for your Honeymoon” and “Top 10 Honeymoon Destinations Around the World.” Oh, we cant forget the lip cocktail of the day, because a woman is never dressed until she dresses her lip! Carpe Diem!
