When Janelle’s wedding photos came back from the ever-talented Alyssa Christine Photography I was giddy with excitement!
Why? Because this bride’s wedding vision was a dream from her trendy choice of dusty blue lanterns in lieu of bridesmaid bouquets to her extension-styled updo with white floral accents…I was in artistic heaven.
Personally, I love some mood-like colors in images. I feel that it is more realistic and provides more depth and meaning to photographs, which again, is why I was so pumped to be working with Alyssa Christine for this bride’s day!
Alyssa selected the perfect settings for this couple’s portraits and I am so excited to share her captures here with all of you! Not only was Alyssa’s selection excellent for photos, but also her choice went perfectly with my new brand colors (double-win!).
The tan, sage, and gray hues in these photographs are incredibly complimentary, so naturally I did a little happy dance since I am not always so fortunate to have a photographer’s images line-up with my own brand goals!! (Thank you Alyssa!)
Without further adieu, I am going to share some of my favorites of these drool-worthy photos of Janelle’s bright and romantic look!

Here are the pretty little details about Janelle’s whimsical, yet classic, wedding day style:
First, a little secret…
Janelle was one step ahead when she came to me for her trial because she already knew that to achieve the full and beautiful upstyle she wanted, she would need to use hair extensions to help fill-in and bulk-up her pretty, but fine hair (P.S. – the best extensions are clip-in extensions, but a post on that later!).
Did you know ?
I offer extensions rental for your big day, at a low cost to you! The extensions I use retail at a $300 value and are the best bridal extensions on the market. BUT since I want you to have the hairstyle of your dreams, and since I realize that most brides – like myself when I was getting married – cannot afford to pay that additional cost – I mean you are already paying for your entire wedding, right?!
Who needs more large expenses?!
In light of this, I am able to offer high-quality extension rental starting at a much lower, more manageable number. If extension rental interests you, talk to me at your trial!!
More information coming about this in the future: STAY TUNED.
As to the rest of Janelle’s hairstyle, we did a low side-bun with big bunches of curls pinned together in the back to create a really romantic, big upstyle! For the sides we kept them simple and swept back in a way that flattered her natural beauty. Then, for the final touches, some greenery and white florals were added to really bring everything together!
For Janelle’s makeup, she wanted a bright and natural look (like almost all of my brides!), which is my specialty! We went with a bright white-pink-hued shimmer on her lids, with the slightest contour in the outer corner using a darker matte-brown shade, thin liner, false eyelashes (of course!), and waterproof mascara!
To complete her look we went with a complimentary long-wearing blush/lip duo based on her natural lip shade, but intensified a little so as to stand out more in her pictures!
Overall, Janelle’s look was flawless on her wedding day and a perfect representation of not only her natural beauty, but also her inner beauty!
Thank you Janelle for choosing me to be your Hair & Makeup Artist on such an important and special day in your life.
Cheers to your marriage!
Fearfully & Wonderfully,
