This one of a kind wedding party wore pink chiffon and rose gold sequin dresses. Each bridesmaid also chose the hairstyle they felt most beautiful wearing!

The Wedding Venue

The wedding planner, Emily Reno, did an especially phenomenal job planning a gorgeous wedding for Kathlyn and Jeremy.

Their wedding at the JW Marriott could not have been more perfect for these two!

We gave Kathlyn soft curls before pinning her hair up, because of this she was able to easily let down her hair for the party of a lifetime. As a result, this gave her an entirely new bridal look for the second half of the wedding.

With flowers galore and a smoke machine during their first dance, Kathlyn and Jeremy’s reception was an unforgettable one. In fact, the floral arch alone was enough to make any wedding lover swoon!

We would be thrilled to be a part of your big day! We can’t wait to discuss your wedding plans with you so reach out to us through our contact page at any time!

Las Vegas Wedding Makeup Artist | Alyse and Ken

This glam bride chose us as her Las Vegas wedding makeup artist for her special day. We loved getting to create this old Hollywood look for our gorgeous bride.

Alyse and Ken were absolutely stunning with a wedding at the Neon Museum in Las Vegas. It was the perfect spot with plenty of room because it was just the two of them!

I mean, let’s talk about what a showstopper that dress is! With her dress making such a bold statement, Alyse really wanted her hair and makeup to have an effortless look. As a result, Ken couldn’t keep his eyes off her!

The Las Vegas Wedding Makeup Look

Alyse really wanted her eyes to pop so we added lots of lashes with a little smoke. We kept her eyeshadow colors a natural, bronze hue and mixed in some highlight to give her that extra glow on her cheekbones.

Alyse was not used to wearing a lot of lipstick so we went with a nude lip and a lot of gloss on top.

The neckline of Alyse’s dress was so eye-catching and a side swept hairstyle with a slide clip proved to be the perfect complement.

The Wedding Venue

The backdrop for the ceremony was epic! If you are a bride who is wanting a more unique and unconventional wedding ceremony, the Neon Museum is the perfect place that brings old world Vegas with a modern, hipster approach.

This is such a cool venue for all kinds of events. Lots of couples choose to have their engagement photos shot here, too!

Alyse and Ken were so happy with the outcome of their Las Vegas destination wedding! We couldn’t be more thrilled for this couple and wish them all the best going forward with their new marriage. We are so glad Alyse chose us as her Las Vegas wedding makeup artist because we loved being apart of their day.

My Wedding Is In 12 Days

My wedding is in 12 days, and I’ll be Mrs. Young and I am just bursting at the seams with joy, but man I don’t know where I am coming or going. It’s been non stop the last week with finalizing the wedding timeline, and everything with our vendors, etc and running Brianna Michelle Beauty. Talk about wedding brain!!!! It’s more like I have no brain- LOL However, I am SO FREAKING EXCITED!!!

Sometimes  you always know and I always knew I would feel this sense of satisfaction, and love fulfillment when I got married. Planning a wedding changes you and getting married changes you. It is something that is hard to describe, but you just change and I cant describe it, but it is like all of a sudden you feel the most loved, beautiful, wholeness that ever is. Perhaps it is like when you become a mom for the first time or how my mom friends are always explaining to me- well thats how I feel and I cant wait to share all the personal growth I have developed in myself since I have been on this journey to married life with my big girl pants on now! 🙂 I can hardly wait for the wedding! I am ready to become a wife and the queen of my castle!

So I am sharing with you a few things that I discovered to be prepared for during the last 2 weeks of your wedding day. Hope you find them helpful and if there is something I missed, please share below in the comments section!

THINGS DO GET HECTIC- BE PREPARED.

I got almost all my planning done by the end of April and things finalized. Literally everything down to the bridesmaids gifts, wedding favors and cake topper. This gave me some room my last few weeks for any upcoming incidentals, reconfirming with all my vendors, or things I wasn’t expecting to incur such as people not rsvp-ing on time, hunting them down and making sure my venue had all the items on the menu that we agreed some months ago during our tasting.

Yes, double check with all your vendors. There were a few items we had on the menu we selected months ago, that our venue contact said they were not carrying on the menu anymore, but luckily they were able to accommodate us so nicely. Price we paid for choosing a great venue and not the cheapest one on the list. You do get what you pay for.

TIMELINE

I am still struggling to get this done and hope to have it done this week. Plan for at least 3 days so you don’t go crazy and work on it a little each day, if your doing it on your own and not hiring a coordinator.

I started with hair and makeup getting ready in the morning at 9am all the way down to the 11pm sparkler send off! Don’t forget to add on your timeline when your are signing the marriage license. Most do it right after the ceremony in the back room somewhere nearby.

DON’T FORGET YOUR TRIAL

Even if your a destination bride and flying in a day or two before, schedule a trial the day before. I actually had my hair trial months ago, and thank God I did. While the hairstylist did exactly what I asked for and was terrific, I didn’t like the look on myself and opted for something else. I was able to have a few trials here in Vegas with my own team, so she will be able to duplicate on the day of. I am doing my own makeup- everyone asks! :))

MAKE NOTE OF SPECIAL PHOTOS 

If your like me and have this vision of how you want your photos to turn out and what shots are physically in your mind, I recommend taking some sample screen shots of some looks and not only sending them to your photographer via Pinterest, but writing them down on the timeline, so that as you go through it your Coordinator or Maid of Honor can make sure those shots are getting done. For example, if there’s certain shots you want with specific family members or the bride and groom shot with the brides veil over them or the fabulous and most popular sparkler send off shot add them to the wedding timeline!

PREPARE FOR GRATUITY

While most vendors include gratuity in their wedding contracts, it’s always appreciated to ask the venue or vendor if gratuity is included.  I have personally set aside cash gratuity in envelopes for all my vendors.

DELEGATE

It’s okay to allow people to help you! Your not expected to do everything on your own. Have a few people aside to be your “Gofers” so that they can help things go a bit more smooth on wedding day. I have set aside my bridesmaids and in additional another close friend.

IN ADDITION….

Last but not least, if you are generally not an organized person, HIRE A WEDDING PLANNER! Add it into your budget before booking anyone. I run a business, and I am extremely organized and this was ALOT for me. While we almost eloped I am so happy we are doing it the way I always dreamed of, even though it was so expensive. I can look back and feel good about the way we planned everything and became a MRS.!!!!!
