When I first met Karima, I immediately noticed her joyful smile!!! After she booked, we had her trial at her sisters house and I got to meet some her kids and her mom too! That's the thing about Karima - she's all about family. We laughed and talked and did 2 different looks (one on each eye, lol) and she decided on a look for her big day: a smokey chocolate-y golden-y shimmery eye with a bright red lip... and a lot of class.
On the Big Day
I had never been to the Grand Ivory Venue before, and I was in for quite a treat. The Chapel has HUGE windows that overlook the lake and it was truly breathtaking. The venue is white and airy with a sophisticated country feel. The white really highlighted the beautiful reds and blues they picked for flowers and accent colors. On wedding day, it was super cold, but we were hanging out in the Bridal Suite for the morning and it was crazy fun! Kids, moms, sisters, aunties, friends... everyone she loved was surrounding her and there was so much love in the room it was incredible. I applied makeup all morning and was there to see everyone get dolled up and dressed.
My favorite beauty moment was...
putting on that RED lipstick! There is something amazing that happens when a woman puts on a bright, bold lip - and Karima was strutting her stuff (in that INCREDIBLE jacket!) and wearing that lip like she was born in it. She was glowing from beginning to end, and I was thrilled to have been a part of her and Donovan's spectacular day.
