Last November I had the pleasure of working with Rebecca...probably one of the kindest and sweetest brides I had last season. Right away during the trial we hit it off and actually had a few hidden connections! We actually both studied Theatre at York University but didn't know each other b/c we were in different sections of the program and she was a year younger than me plus my friend Victoria actually stayed w/ her mom when Victoria was touring her one woman show this past Summer in London! Not only that but when Rebecca spoke of her fiance Stephen she mentioned he was a Dramaturg at Young People's Theatre and I nodded my head...she asked if I knew what that was and I did (b/c of my theatre background...this was before we realized we both went to York lol)...I'm probably one of the only makeup artists (or non theatre ppl) to know what a dramaturg is so we definitely had a chuckle over that and she joked her fiance would want her to hire me just on that face alone lol! Btw a dramaturg is someone who deals mainly with the research and development of plays and operas.
Rebecca and Stephen's whole weddings was so unique and perfect for them and I really loved that aspect of it! They actually met while working at Young People's Theatre and even though Rebecca no longer works there Stephen still does so they actually got to use the space for some of their wedding pictures and ceremony which they got to do on the stage! How perfect is that for two people working in the theatre world! I believe the show that season was To Kill A Mocking Bird so the courtroom stage set up was pretty perfect for a wedding ceremony lol!
For Rebecca's look I created a really beautiful side updo w/ a few small accent braids and overall I was really happy w/ how full I made her hair look b/c it was actually pretty fine in reality. For her makeup we did a gorgeous natural champagne/brown eye w/ a winged liner and flared false lash and made the look really pop w/ a nice bold vibrant magenta lip!
I really love these pics that Mike Pochwat took b/c I felt he did a great job capturing some wonderful behind the scenes moments as well as the uniqueness of Rebecca and Stephen as a couple! Can't wait to add these to my site!
Love the eyes here!
Yeah...my station is usually a disaster after a wedding...I'm hygienic but not neat lol!
Really wish my hand wasn't in the way of this shot as it's really beautiful lol!
My usual "work face" aka "bitch face" lol
In the workshop of Young People's Theatre
On a final note I should add that Rebecca also wrote one of the kindest and most detailed reviews I've ever read...seriously!...how nice is that!?!
