Preview Your Wedding Look With a Fun Photo Shoot!

Mr. Bella and I are headed to the wedding of his best friend, Dave, and his fiancée, Liz, in just a few short weeks. Boston, here we come for some wicked awesome times. After snooping around on Liz's Facebook page, I spotted these convivial photos, along with some well-applied makeup and perfectly waved hair on the bride-to-be.
If you're getting married, ask your hairdresser for a makeup artist recommendation. That's how Liz found Shauna Shay, the makeup artist who used MAC products in these photos for Liz's soft bridal palette. Find out how the future Mrs. Dave used her trial run makeup appointment — along with an antique Boston trolley — to create a fun pre-wedding photo shoot when you

Liz said,

A lot of people schedule their hair and/or makeup trial for the day of their shower or some other event they want to look good for. Our photographer includes an engagement shoot with his package, but we had already sent our engagement announcement in to papers and everything, so this shoot was pretty much a freebie, and I used it to see how the makeup would photograph. My cousin helped us get a permit for a trolley line in Boston that has antique cars, and we just had fun taking pics. It was good to work with our photographer before the big day and get comfortable, too.

My question is how in the world did she get her hair to look like that? It is so lovely! I am getting married in June (just legally...no big event...but still) and I would love to make my hair look like that!

Maybe you know him, Aimeeb! He does have a twin brother, too.

That's so awesome. I'm just 10mns south of the city and I'm sure you'll have a blast! Dave looks oddly familiar too!!
