Bridal Makeup | Monte Verde Inn Wedding | Foresthill, California

I always enjoy the quaint and lovely Gatsby-esque charm of the Monte Verde Inn; It has been one of my favorite venues to do makeup at for years. From the beautiful drive to the Inn, to it's gorgeous well-kept grounds, and beautiful bridal room, full of amazing light for hair and makeup!

My gorgeous bride Emily brought so much fun, love and light with her bright colors, awesome style savvy, and with her beautiful, creative personal touches. Thank you to Sonia Savio Photography for capturing these beautiful images of Emily during her morning of beauty, and throughout her amazing wedding! Cheers and Congrats to Emily and James!

I'm jealous of all you brides out there who still have your wedding day ahead of you, complete with the chance to spend a full morning with Christi's talent, charm, and hilarious good company.

For my wedding day, Christi worked her magic on me, my bridesmaids, and all the mothers of my party. We felt beautiful, confident, and bubbly the entire day, and everyone, including the folks who hate getting their pictures taken, smiled easily for the camera.

Christi perfectly executed my vision of natural, light makeup with a touch of drama in the eyes. I've never felt more gorgeous as I did that day, and I've become a complete and total narcissist since the pictures were delivered, staring at cheekbones, eyelashes, and eyebrows I never realized I had.

For my hair, Christi brought along a ridiculously talented assistant named Michelle Chiquet who gave me the most magnificent updo I have ever seen--on my head or anyone else's. Working from a collection of about 5 inspiration photos, Michelle sculpted my hair into a piece of art--a tumble of curls, somehow weightless but never budging for the entire night. Pure perfection.

Christi's talent is rivaled only by her sparkling personality and sharp sense of humor, which kept me cracking up with each delightful email communication, and kept all my bridesmaids giggling and ready for the party on the morning of. Seriously: the girl will not only make you beautiful, she'll make you LAUGH.

The only downside to hiring Christi is that sad, fluorescent-lit, Cinderella-at-12:01 moment of staring into the hotel mirror, sweeping off your gorgeous face and taking all bagillion-and-one bobby pins out of your gorgeous hair. But fear not, because a few weeks later, your pictures will arrive and there you'll be, laughing and glowing and even more beautiful than you remember, with a face that you can admire and drool over forever, all thanks to the work of an ├╝ber-talented, professional little pixie named Christi.
