Sophia & Jay Tie the Knot

October 18th, 2013

Lauren Stefan and Artistic Imagery teamed up to help create and capture a beautiful wedding at the Water Works Restaurant in Philadelphia! We spent the entire day with our bride, Sophia, beautifying and capturing all of the special moments of her wedding. The day began with getting ready – comfortable in her own home, Sophia was primped by me while my team was beautifying her bridesmaids. The amazing Artistic Imagery photographers came to take “behind the scenes” shots while getting Sophia ready for the big day! Even with having TWO power outages while getting ready that morning, the girls were all finished and dressed in perfect timing for Sophia to be ready to get in her dress. Meanwhile, I prepared my travel kit to follow my beautiful bride around all day for touch-ups!  It was truly an honor to be such a big part of her day.

Next we headed to the bride’s backyard for the “first look” and a few photos before I put on Sophia’s veil. I stood on the sidelines prepared with blotting papers, powder, blush, lipstick, hairspray and more for any necessary touch-ups. After the backyard photos, the photographer told me that Sophia looked radiant in the photos and that I had done a great job on her make-up. It’s always nice to get compliments from other artists that I’m working with!

Then we were off to the ceremony at the church! Afterwards, I hopped on the trolley with the newly married couple and wedding party to cruise around the city for more photos. We stopped at a gazebo, the art museum steps and outside of the Waterworks Restaurant where the reception was being held. Everywhere the bride went, I was right there making sure she was picture perfect. She felt much more comfortable just knowing I was there if she needed me and that I was touching her up in between and keeping her make-up fresh and hair in place. After all the photos were done, I took Sophia’s veil off before her and Jay were announced for the first time as husband and wife!

And then it was off to party! At the end of the day, I got to watch Sophia dance her first dance with her new husband looking absolutely gorgeous – I love my job!!! It was truly an honor to be such a big part of her day and turn a beautiful girl into a stunning bride for her wedding.
