How did you and your groom meet?
We met through mutual friends in high school. The next semester, he was in my Economics class where we were seated next to each other. I used this opportunity to ask him questions and be his partner for projects.

We are dying to know, how did he propose?!
I had the weekend off of work and no plans, so he suggested that we go to the Grand Canyon. We drove up Friday night to Flagstaff and continued to the Grand Canyon on Saturday. We took one of the shuttles to several of the lookouts. At one, he pulled me off to the side away from the crowd. He pulled away and I thought he was turning around to go back, but when I turned around he was on one knee!

We are about to enter into wedding season and boy are we excited! But right now we’re in the planning stages on how to make sure this is our best wedding season yet. With this goal we thought about all of the steps of planning a wedding and how hair and makeup could be involved; and then it hit us, bachelorette parties! Why not have one of our talented stylists doll you and your wedding party up for a night out on the town? And to make it even better (yes it gets better) if you book services for 3 girls then your service is free! I know when I was a part of a bachelorette party I would have loved for someone to do my hair and makeup!

{Real Bride Series} Meet Sarah!

Meet Sarah, our newest member of our Real Bride Series!

How did you and your groom meet?
We always ask people, do you want to know how I met him or how he met me. Yes… there is a difference. So here’s the full story.

It was my freshman year of college. It was the end of August and I was riding my bike to a chemistry study group in the library. I heard a girls voice above the crowd say “Do you want to come to Bible Study tonight?” I stopped my bike, I had been looking for a Christian club on campus so I went up to the table. I made eye contact with a boy, I felt sparks run down my spine. I definitely believe in love at first sight now. He introduced himself to me as Lucas and I met everyone else at the table. I went to Christian Challenge that night, Lucas and I started talking about why I cam to ASU and what I was studying. He was on the leadership team so he did what he was supposed to do, he introduced me to a girl that had stuff in common with me. He wasn’t at challenge the next two weeks. I looked though, I wanted to see him again.

The third week I looked back to where he helped out at the soundboard in the back and he was there! Turns out he was a sun devil rep at ASU where he helped get freshman connected at ASU. So as a part of that he had been taking them to the Thursday night football games. Well, that night he ended up in my small group. Most of the people in my group were new so he was introducing himself to them. Then he looked across the circle at me and went “Hi I’m Lucas, what’s your name?” my heart sank a little bit but I smiled and said “My name is Sarah, it’s nice to meet you.”. We spoke that night about how I had been home schooled for 10 years and how I had a Texas accent. We talked for about 45 minutes that night.

I signed up for the fall retreat with Christian Challenge. I had to go up a day late due to homework, but I walked into the NAU Christian Challenge a little after 9am at the end of October. The boys were up and waiting for the girls to come over from the building they were staying in. I sat down on the couch and a few minutes late Lucas sat down on the couch across from the one I was on. He leaned over and put out his hand “Hi i’m Lucas.” I smiled again and shook his hand “Hi, I am Sarah. It’s nice to meet you.”

Somehow we started talking about how I had lived in Japan. He got excited because he was half Japanese and his mom was from Japan. We spent the rest of the weekend together. He said he knew he liked me when that night we were playing capture the flag and my competitive side came out.

Nowadays he says that he was trying not to focus on girls that weekend. He was really trying to focus on his relationship with God, but I broke through that apparently… oops. Apparently third times the charm when it came to us meeting.

NACE Annual Event

One of our Bridal Liaison’s favorite thing is receiving photos from events that we have done. In July some of our stylists were invited to use their talents for the Annual NACE event. They had a Day of the Dead themed night and our stylists painted sugar skulls on all of the servers and performers! They got very creative with gems, glitter and unique designs.

Then the next night was their gala which was full of wonderful speeches and ball gowns. Our stylists had the honor of doing hair and makeup for some of the ladies attending the gala. They all looked beautiful and perfect for a night of dancing!

Babydoll Beauty Secrets: Glitter Eyes

October is the perfect month to get creative with your eye looks! Sabrina has a trick for you this week to up your glitter game.

When trying a look that features glitter, first spray your brush with a setting spray; this will give the glitter something to grab on to so it doesn’t get sucked into your brush. Next, prep the eye with either a non-toxic glitter glue (i.e. Too Faced Glitter Glue) or a super adhesive cream stick (i.e. NYX Jumbo eye pencils). Apply the glitter as desired. After the adhesive has dried, tip your head upside down and run over each eye lightly with a fan brush. This will reduce fall out… But who does not love a little glitter?!
