We absolutely love doing makeup and hair for elopements! We have had the pleasure of working with couples from England (all over), Ireland (north and south), Scotland (kilts!), Brazil (in the snow!), Finland, Spain, New Zealand, the Jersey Channel Islands, France, and many from Australia. This brings me to gorgeous Aussies Bridann and Kym.
This couple came to us from the planner and photographer, and specifically wanted to be married on New Year’s Eve in the Lower East Side of NYC. Fine by me – it was my easiest work commute of the year! They chose Hotel on Rivington, and as you will see, they did the ceremony on the roof deck with a celebrant. Intimate, private, and spectacular.
Style comes in many forms, and Bridann and Kym displayed it in many quiet ways. First, they had their wedding on their own terms, in a totally different climate, time zone, and hemisphere! The bride wore a gorgeous navy crepe gown with a deep dipped back and matching embellishments on the waistline – talk about day to dinner!
Check out lots of their thoughtful and classy details, from Kym’s dress shirt embroidered with the wedding date, Bridann’s winter bouquet, and the delicious-looking cake.
The couple was married under romantic and painterly skies that were alternately stormy and sunny, and then walked around the neighborhood to enjoy the last bits of holiday cheer that is native to NYC: street side Christmas trees for sale, and festive holiday lights in the bars and restaurants.
Cheers to all of our clients who are taking on the adventure of building a life together! Thanks for including us in your first step.
