Brittany had won a Complimentary Hair & Makeup Session with me for her Wedding Day for filling out a contest form when I was a vendor at the Bridal Expo at MGM Casino on January 24th 2010. As soon as I met her, I hoped she would take me up on my offer. Nothing makes me happier than working on such a deserving, beautiful bride-to-be.
As I pulled up to her quant home in New London, CT I was thrilled. I couldn't wait to start contouring her perfect like bone structure with pigment. As thrilled as I was to work on her hair and make-up to help her prepare for her perfect wedding on June 19th, which amazingly enough is the same day as my son's 1st Birthday (I just knew it was meant to be), I had no idea how much I would fall in love with such a special person as her, her family and the love that her and her fiancee share together.
It was truly special to see how much love and support Brittany's family and fiancee have for her. Every moment her Fiancee, Joe DiSantis got, he peeked around the corner as I was working one her just to tell her how beautiful she looked.
Brittany's mother couldn't stop gloating about Brittany telling me baby and childhood stories about her which couldn't help me but think how incredibly strong of a woman that Brittany is. I think it's so remarkable that one person could go through hardships, special events and turn into such a caring and sweet person. A person, that has a devoted family and soon-to-be husband that from where I was standing, could tell this woman is going to be happy for the rest of her life and always be surrounded with wonderful people.
I am so honored to be a part of Brittany's special day. It's people like Joe & Brittany, that prove that true love really exist everyday, their love is what people dream of and hope for. How truly wonderful it is for the world to know that it is not just in fairy tales but right next door in the town of New London, CT.
