"If I lived a million lives,
I would've felt a million feelings,
and I still would've fallen a million times for you"
I cannot believe I am only getting to featuring this beautiful bride NOW! We are nearing her 1 year anniversary, this November! whoo hoo!! I had the honor of glamming up this beauty and her ladies by chance, in an emergency situation. (A divine and miraculous emergency) And I could not be more blessed and grateful for how the events played out.
So, a little back story. I get the call from fellow glam fairy and very good friend, Anna Nuet. She had unexpectedly gone into labour, TWO months before her "due date"! She was on her way into the city to deliver her beautiful daughter, but she had Melissa's wedding booked in the few days following.
Look, life happens...and I'm proud to work with fellow professionals in this business. Our own health, and that of our loved ones does come first and foremost. That I'm sure goes for anyone! However, our brides are always at the top as well on our priority list. Anna had literally called me seconds after her water broke to not only let me know, but to organize taking care of her bride. She is an amazing woman and a real pro! I am so grateful to be apart of a fabulous wedding community and work with some very special artists who work WITH each other NOT against each other.
I really and truly need to show my love and gratitude to this beautiful bride, Melissa! Thank you SO much for putting your faith and trust in Anna, Jazmin (who also helped a great deal) and myself on your wedding day!
She was TOTALLY calm, collected, and incredibly patient during all of our communication re-organizing everything, especially on the wedding day. I have had the pleasure of glamming up literally thousands of brides in my career - and Melissa completely stands out - a beautiful human outside and IN! Her kindness, compassion and sweet spirit I absolutely admire and adore. In what COULD have been a totally chaotic and stressful situation, the organization and patience from both Anna and Melissa was a true blessing!
Not only was Melissa an amazing woman, so was the rest of her family and friends. I truly had an incredible day glamming up these ladies - and Melissa's sweet flowergirl stole my heart. Once the dust settled, her big day was perfection and Anna delivered a healthy, sweet totally precious total beautiful baby girl, who I just adore. It was an absolutely beautiful day filled with just so much love all around!
