Real Wedding: Nicole & Andy Got Married By The Sea At Tom Ham’s Lighthouse
It was a full weekend everyone. In an absolutely wonderful way. One of the weddings this past Saturday was for Nicole and Andy. These two got married at Tom Ham’s Lighthouse, and it couldn’t have been more perfect. I am sure you hear that a lot and despite the heat and humidity, Nicole and Andy are happily married. Really, at the end of the day, that’s really all that matters right?
How It All Began
Nicole and I connected in the beginning of the year through a vendor referral (her lovely photographer and my friend Sophia Elizabeth of Sophia Elizabeth Photography). From the start I adored Nicole, she had this energy that was absolutely infectious and she wanted to be a little bold with the hair and makeup for her wedding. You can tell based on the description she gave me when we initially started chatting:
I’d love a more dramatic/romantic style with makeup including dramatic eyes and full lips. My hair is about shoulder length and I’d like to wear it down and have large soft curls with one side pinned behind my ear.
Her beauty experience was really important to her and I wanted to make it as stress-free as possible for her. So after getting an initial feel for what she was looking for with hair and makeup, I took it from there in setting up a trial for her with the artists best suited for her and well, the rest is history.
Wedding Day Ready
Leading up to the day, Nicole became a bit stressed with some last minute changes on her end. The Airbnb she had in place got swapped last minute, so the night before her wedding she emailed me a new location. It might have been 8:00pm and way past normal business hours (especially on a Friday), but the last thing she needed, was to worry the night before her wedding. She emailed me the new address + information, I relayed to the artists and when Saturday morning came around, everything went beautifully. The artists even finished early, evidence that having a beauty timeline is so important.
At the end of the day, she had the beauty experience she deserved, and she and Andy got married. Seeing the photos, is just icing on the cake that Nicole got the experience she was meant to have and being part of it warms my heart.
