Krystle Alvarez

June 28, 2009 Golden Gardens. Krystle and her family/friends were so much fun to work with! I instantly felt right at home with them while they were getting ready. Krystle was so excited for her big day! When we did her run-through, I had her take a mirror outside to see the makeup in natural light and she started crying. "I look like a bride!!" I was so happy to be a part of her special day. :)

Special thanks to Voir Photography for the great images!

From the bride:
Words cannot express what amazing work Kaarin has done for my wedding. In my search for a makeup artist, it was essential for me to have someone on location and someone who specializes in MAC makeup. Upon endless searches online, I came across her elegant blog. Her pictures were worth a thousand words! Kaarin was right on time at our initial meeting, so upbeat, enthusiastic..I felt like I've known her forever. She made me feel comfortable especially since I'm not much of a makeup person. I wanted to have that bridal glow, but wanted it to look as natural as possible. She asked if I wanted to see the process along the way, but I decided to be surprised at the end. My heart jumped as I saw myself in the mirror, but that wasn't even the half of it. She suggested seeing it in the sunshine, as she artistically blended the colors uniquely for the atmosphere.. my jaw dropped as I saw myself in the mirror with the sun rays across my face. My heart pounded, and I wanted to hug her a million times. I felt a rush of emotion.. on the verge of tears. I was going to look amazing on my wedding day, and she made me look as beautiful as I felt inside. This woman works wonders, and she's an absolute joy to work with. She also made up my mom and my bridesmaids. Everyone until this day couldn't stop talking about how stunning everyone looked the day of and how dreamy the pictures were. As you can see.. it was one of the best decisions I've made in my life. THANK YOU KAARIN for everything!
