Ayelet’s Wedding- Last Minute!

No Comments Beauty, Wedding

Sometimes in life things just work out exactly the way they’re supposed to. A great example is how I came to be involved with Ayelet’s wedding this October, even though it was completely last minute!

I had just arrived home from a short job in the city and was getting ready to run some errands, when I got a text from one of my favorite hairstylists ever, Stacy Pitt from Styles on B who I’ve worked with on many weddings.   She said she was working on a wedding in Carroll Gardens and the makeup artist was a no-show due to a minor car accident and could I be there in 15 minutes?? Luckily I didn’t have anymore clients that day, my kit was ready to go and I was only 3 subway stops away so I hopped on the subway and got there as quickly as I could.

I was welcomed warmly and enthusiastically and I got to work as quickly as I could on the beautiful bride, Ayelet and her sister.  Everyone was so kind and excited for Ayelet and I was so happy that I was able to be there with all of these lovely people celebrating such an important day.  After I was done with the makeup and Ayelet had taken a look at it in the mirror, she was so happy with it she asked if she could give me a hug!  This is the kind of moment that makes everything worth it as a makeup artist; I don’t know if I’ve ever felt so appreciated!

In addition to working with Ayelet and her lovely family, the photographer, Tatiana Breslow, was an absolute dream to work with as well and sent me these truly stunning pictures of the wedding a week or two later.  She truly captured the love during that day and I was tearing up when I was looking at the photos.  I was so happy the timing worked out perfectly to allow me to be a part of this wonderful wedding!
