off the beaten path

I’ve waited with baited-breath to show you this styled shoot–shot at beautiful Craggy Gardens in the mountains near Asheville. Now it’s officially featured in Charlotte Brides, (YAY) I’m finally allowed to pop off the top and spill the contents of this whimsy, ethereal love story. 

If you think our models actually look like they are in love–it’s because they are. Satahi and Kyle will be getting married this June in California! They stunningly brought the shoot to life and Satahi hiked all the way up the mountain trail in her dress! The blush and navy tones were so striking and soft against the greenery, florals and mountain-field backdrop. 

For the makeup, we decided to go with soft blush pink tones to compliment the themes found in the shoot. On her lids, I mixed a combo of warm pink, shell and white tones to open up the eyes and maintain a fresh, natural doe-eyed look. I placed shades of espresso brown and black in the outer corner and blended it out into an angular, feline shape to give her eyes an elongated, almond look. The cheeks and lips were kept to the same soft blush color palette–with a bit of a cooler pink on the lips. 

Take a closer look at the wonderful photos and don’t forget to check out our seriously talented vendors…
