Maigan & Nick’s State Room Wedding

Maigan and Nick celebrated their marriage on October 18, 2014, at The State Room located in the heart of downtown Albany, New York. This sweet couple met in the library of the Sage College of Albany and from this point on it was pure bliss! I was fortunate to meet Maigan from The Knot Wedding Network. It has been a pleasure working with her as we developed a flawless look for her wedding day! I just love her simplistic yet passionate outlook on life. Maigan carried this through on her big day by incorporating a very special and sentimental surprise within her gorgeous bouquet done by her maid of honor. Maigan and Nick, it means so much to have witnessed the joy of your wedding day. Congratulations to you both on finding the perfect person to share all your days with!

A huge thank you to the extremely talented Trisha Millier for capturing these wonderful moments of Maigan and Nick’s special day! You can visit more of her amazing work here.

 

Emily & Simon’s Hancock Shaker Village Wedding

DSC_1973 (2)On 10.11.14 an English Groom (Simon) married his beautiful American Bride (Emily) at the  historic Hancock Shaker Village located in Pittsfield, Massachusetts. I have so enjoyed working with Emily since April of 2014. For her special day, Emily decided on a natural eye with a hint of gray smoke to bring out her striking brown eyes, airbrush make-up, and eyelashes! I also had the pleasure of glamming for her sister/maid of honor and best friend, who were also apart of Emily’s bridal party.  Hair was done by the talented ladies of Sei Bella Salon of Chatham, New York. Emily’s wedding style exudes pure rustic elegance which compliments their colorful Autumn day! Now for the images…can we say Amazing?! I am beyond impressed with the talent of Sheri Angeles of Swanky Fine Art Weddings based in Southern California! Be sure to visit their page to see a glimpse of their incredible work! Thank you Emily and Simon, I’m so thankful you chose Beauty with Julie to witness the start of something so beautiful!
DSC_1946 (2)A Note From Emily – 
“Julie did such an amazing job on my wedding day makeup. She understood exactly what I wanted. When I was hesitant to use the airbrushing from a previously bad experience, I trusted that Julie understood my skin complexion and it looked perfect! The false eyelashes I had looked very real and natural- not too over the top.  We had such a fun time getting ready with Julie and I highly recommend her to any brides and wedding party members.”

Meghan & Brian Goodspeed’s Happily Ever After

Beauty with Julie had the pleasure of performing bridal make-up services for the beautiful Meghan Goodspeed as she married the love of her life and best friend, Brian, of 10 years! Meghan and Brian tied the knot at The Inn at Erlowest, a magnificent stone castle located on beautiful and historic Lake George, in the heart of the majestic Adirondack Mountains. I also had the pleasure of working with Meghan’s sweet and fun family (she is one of four sisters!) who lit up the room with laughter! Meghan is a natural beauty and so easy going, its no wonder she looked flawless on her wedding day! As the morning turned to afternoon, the final touch ups began for Meghan and her bridal party. During this time, tears started to form for a very emotional “first look” reveal to Brian. From today forward, you’ll be partners in a great adventure. Here’s to wishing that you’ll grow even closer as you work together to make your dreams come true and that you’ll look back on this day as only the beginning of your beautiful happily-ever-after!

Love is the shortest distance between hearts – Jill & Brian Pritchett Say “I Do”

 Words cannot express how happy I am for one of my dearest and oldest friends who married her soul mate and best friend on September 13, 2014 at the Onteora Mountain House nestled in the catskill mountains. This venue easily captured my heart and will remain a favorite of mine! So…two years living in different area codes, but no matter the miles between them Jill and Brian have always been there for each other. Jill and Brian are a perfect pair who have made it so easy for each other! As they said their own vows and “I do’s,” it was truly a tender and triumphant moment for the two of them. I could literally feel their love and pride through the strength of their embrace..”We did it!” They portray an unconditional love that I know will last forever and always. Congratulations to the both of you, I wish you a lifetime of happiness on your next adventure together!!

Sweet hearts in Saratoga

August 23, 2014

Saratoga Springs, New York

Photographer: Michael Gallitelli – Metroland Photo

Venue: Saratoga National Golf Club

I met Jennifer and Pete the morning of their special day. From the moment I met them, I knew they were so special to each other! After the future husband and wife said their goodbyes until their “I Do’s,” Jennifer and I got to work with her hair and make-up. We decided on a romantic look, which would accentuate her stunning bridal gown. Jennifer was so excited about using airbrush make-up for her complexion! As you can see, Jennifer was flawless! We spent the morning chatting about Jennifer and Pete’s love story and her big day which was only moments away!  I was also fortunate to perform hair and make-up services on Jennifer’s darling mother, Sally, who kept the morning alive with her loving spirit. Congratulations to Jennifer and Pete!! You are both truly sweet hearts! Best wishes for a lifetime of happiness! Xo

I met with Samantha two weeks prior to her special day for her bridal make-up trial and after 2 hours of chatting and glamming we nailed the perfect look! (despite both of our refrigerators breaking the day of) I especially loved hearing about the couple’s story and of course their second anniversary, where Dana popped the question 😉

As I walked into the Hilton Garden Inn in Albany, New York, on the day of Samantha’s wedding, I was greeted by the bride to be and her lovely bridal party! These girls were just a blast to work with and everyone remained the three C’s…. cool, calm, and collected! The girls were amazed by the eye lashes, so of course I lashed them all up 🙂 I also had the pleasure of working with the talented Anna Curcio from Bella Fiora Hair Studio, and A Slyer Image Photography who captured Samantha and Dana’s gorgeous wedding at Shaker Ridge Country Club in Albany! Check out their amazing work!
