Bridal Makeup & Country Wedding Decorating Ideas: The Barn on Bridge, Collegeville, PA

sexy pink shoes and summer flowers
I had the pleasure of doing the makeup for a summer country style wedding at The Barn on Bridge, a three level barn venue in Collegeville, Pa. full of rustic elegance.

It turned out to be a rainy day, which wasn't unusual for the summer we've had this year in the Philly area. I think the rain actually gave the wedding an intimate, cozy feeling. The wedding ceremony was supposed to be outside in a grassy area but was held in the tent where the cocktail hour would have normally taken place.

The sound of the rain on the tent adorned with bright, happy sunflowers was 
absolutely magical!!!

The Makeup
I did the makeup for the bride, many of her maids, the mother of the bride and the mother of the groom. We did the makeup and hair styling at a nearby hotel in a nice large room with lots of natural light. I always prefer natural light to do bridal makeup or any kind of makeup application.

The bride wanted a soft, fresh look to go with her rustic barn country wedding. Her natural lashes were long and beautiful, but she wanted them to be outstanding. Strip lashes were applied to create drop dead gorgeous eye drama!

Eye shadow in shades of pink, brown and champagne accented her eyes. A soft beige foundation evened out her flushed cheeks and an illuminating finishing powder gave her skin a warm glow. Pink blush, rose lip liner and pink shimmer gloss gave her a soft romantic look. She wore her hair in her signature braided upstyle.

The bridesmaids wore dresses in a soft beige shade. I did their makeup in similar shades to coordinate with the bride and create a cohesive romantic look.

 I used Youngblood CC Perfecting Primer on everyone to create the perfect dewy canvas for smooth foundation application. It's one of my go to products.

The signature cocktail was sangria served in small milk bottles complete with earth friendly paper straws with elegant metallic gold designs.

What a great idea! A wine bottle guests can write on. The natural wood slices added a nice rustic touch to the tables.

The bride and groom dancing on the catwalk in the barn with that lighting was a truly fairy tale moment!
