Set in the beautiful Bucks County Tyler Gardens Modern Elegance is the shoot that all my brides have been waiting for. We hinted with some behind the scenes back in May at a very special something that we were putting together with an extremely talented group of local vendors. Creatively I have been dying to do a styled shoot for quite some time considering that the last styled shoot I had been apart of was published in The Knot. So after many meetings and creatives coming together Modern Elegance was a go. The name is quite something to live up to but thankfully taking inspiration from you my beauty JBB Brides I created a look that was truly special.
So get your pins ready and check out the details of this truly stunning shoot!
Because Stylist Yoko J. had chosen several dress changes we opted for a classic beauty look that would take our bride from the ceremony to the reception without skipping a beautiful beat. Let’s get into some of the details of this beautiful look shall we.
For the look we gave our beautiful model Talisa our classic Just B Beautiful technique. I love giving my brides a polished look without looking like they are ‘wearing’ makeup. Part of my job as an artist is that people see you and see that beautiful skin, remember makeup is meant to enhance not completely cover. As usual I started with skincare because beautiful makeup begins with beautiful skincare, and for hydrated supple skin we reached for a new favorite the Tatcha Water Cream. Next I reached by my go to when not doing airbrush makeup the Make Up For Ever Ultra HD foundation for a flawless base. The Viseart 01 Nude Matte palette was used to create this soft smokey eye look and of course many of my core products rounded out this look. Overall I loved the look and can’t wait to recreate it with one of my Just B Beautiful Brides.

The hair for this shoot was something that we decided to have a lot of fun with considering the makeup look was so classic. Again because of the dress changes we opted for two looks to give some diversity for our brides to see what can be done for their wedding day.
I wanted the first look to emulate the gown, a soft flowy youthful look so I decided to give Talisa’s natural hair a silk press and leave it straight. It looked amazing with the veil and the overall look was exactly what I wanted to achieve.
For this look we decided that with this look we can add a bit, or a lot of drama. With Talisa’s hair already straitened I decided to add extensions and create a dramatic out of the box updo. This look complemented the remaining two gown looks with its sculptural look. I thought it thoroughly complimented everything from the stunning suspended cake, to the reception florals, and of course her handsome groom.
To date this is one of the looks that I just loved creating and surprisingly it didn’t take a long time so it’s perfect for a second look. Be sure to check out the vendors and the rest of the images from this absolutely stunning shoot. Until next time Just B Beautiful my loves and look out for our grooms feature coming soon!
