Pink & Gold Modern Wedding

Over the winter, an amazing group of talented PEI business women, and myself, came up with the idea of doing a modern, pink and gold styled wedding shoot.  It took months in the planning and preparing, but just less then 2 weeks ago the planned shoot took place at the home of Kendra Mills located at the Y Loft condos in Charlottetown.  

Less then 24 hours after we submitted our shoot to Style Me Pretty, we heard back from them, and they loved our shoot and wanted to publish it!  eek!!!!  I can hardly contain my excitement!  Getting published on Style Me Pretty is a pretty big deal, especially since they get over 400 submissions a day!  

The radiant "bride" for our shoot is the lovely Chelsie McInnis.  She is such a natural beauty, and I wanted her makeup to look fresh and modern.  She has adorable freckles and amazing skin, so I kept her foundation sheer by using Kett Cosmetics airbrush foundation.  Her eye makeup was light and neutral, but I added some glamour with Velour false eyelashes in Tdotohh - and they look amazing on her!  Chelsie has great lips, so I new right away I wanted to do a bold pink lipstick on her.  I used OCC lip tar in Anime, which is a bold, almost neon pink colour. 

The talented group of business women who were involved in this shoot are:
Rachel Peters Photography - Rachel Peters
Modern Jane - Jane Gallant
Kim Roach Design - Kim Roach
City View Bakehouse - Jennifer Prinz
Cheryl Weeks Hairstylist - Cheryl Weeks
Michelle Cudmore Makeup Artist - Me :)
Love Charlie - Alisha Stephen
Kiss The Bride - Jennifer Clark

A huge thanks to the wedding vendors who also provided product for this shoot:
Dow's Menswear - tux and men's shoes
The Perfect Pear Bridal - wedding dress and shoes
Heart's and Flowers - flowers
Nortons Jewellers - rings
Newman Estate Winery - wine

And of course this could not have happened without our adorable couple Chelsie McInnis and Jared Murphy.  Thank you!!!

Now here are a few of my favourite shots from the day!

This is such a Carrie Bradshaw/Sex in the City shot!  Love it!!
