We adore out of state brides and this featured bride is a perfect example of why! Alyssa and Devon both live in Manhattan but wanted to return home for a stylish Chicago wedding. Alyssa “said yes to her dress” at the incredible Kleinfelds in New York City. She chose a gorgeous Madison James gown for her walk down the aisle. Alyssa insisted that her stylish inspiration for hair and makeup really came from the influence of her wedding venues and her gown. Which in our opinion she did perfectly!
The couple were married at St. Michaels in Old Town and had there reception at the grandiose and timeless Germania Place. She wanted her look to be classic with a modern twist. Darbie and Jody created exactly that for her wedding day!
Alyssa’s favorite part of her makeup was her eyes and lip color! Soft & smokey is a perfect description! Golds and browns were the perfect choice for giving Alyssa’s eye makeup just a little extra pop! Darbie combined a shimmery gold for the lid, with some matte browns on the outer corners. She also accompanied this look with a full pair of lashes. Darbie wanted the lashes to not be the focus, but more of a compliment.
As for hair, Alyssa has self admitted “stubbornly straight” hair that never holds a curl. Enter our lead stylist Jody..she was able to achieve perfect curls for a fun yet glamorous style that lasted all night long! Jody loves a challenge, so when Alyssa said her hair doesn’t hold a curl, it was game on for Jody! The outcome speaks for itself! Simply gorgeous! This updo is super trendy right now, lots of brides are requesting it. What Jody loves about this look is that its timeless. Jody feels that every bride who wears this updo will look back and truly say there look was timeless!
In the end, Alyssa got her dream look to fit her dream wedding. We are so happy that Alyssa was referred to us by a former bride, we love our referrals! Alyssa is no exception, we absolutely adored working with her!
