My friend S's wedding was on Saturday and I did the make-up for the bride, 4 bridemaids, mother of bride, 1 junior bridesmaid, 2 sisters-in-law, and 3 flower girls. Grand total of 12 people! I started at 7:30am and finished at 3pm. The ceremony started at 3:30 and I skipped it b/c I needed a shower and a nap! I was able to rally, so Hubs and I had a "hot" wedding date!
The reception was at 6:30 and all ladies still looked great - so proud of my first paying gig! There was one mishap with K's false lashes: her contacts were bugging her, she kept messing with them and one lash was 1/2 off. Thankfully it was after pics and I was able to fix her up before the reception. I did ask the photog to take some headshots so I can start building a portfolio. I am still on the fence on how much effort I will put in to building this business. Already having a full-time job, being a wife, and mom to 2 young kids takes time and tons of energy. Thankfully, Hubs is soooooo supportive!

It was a beautiful wedding reception. Very classy and personal and I feel very honored to have been asked to participate - thanks S!
