in love couple with double braid style

Summer Elopement

Whether you are eloping or having a small wedding doesn’t mean that you can’t enjoy the full experince of being pampered on your special day. Makayla and AJ enjoyed a small ceremony in the mountains. Kayla with Kayla Bertagnolli Photography captured their wedding so well. I am so excited to share this beautiful couple with you.

 I first went to Makayla’s aunt’s house in Salt Lake City. There was snacks and champange for the bride. I styled her hair into this gorgeous double braided style. We had a consultation about how she wanted to look on her wedding day and looked at different inspiration photos she loved. She wanted a glamorous makeup look that would still look natural in photos.

We achieved that look by using a medium coverage foundation from Make Up For Ever. I was able to build up coverage in areas that needed a bit extra without adding so much product. Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz in Taupe defined the brows.

Before and After for a blonde beautiful bride

After the hair and makeup was complete, they headed to their mountain location that was previously hand selected by Marisa of Pop I do. This is the best option for a stress free wedding. All you have to do is show up and they will have the minister, photographer, bouquet, pastries, and a toast. You don’t have to do any of the work!
