Cassandra’s Hill

Country Wedding

Beauty Journey

How we met

Cassandra was referred to me by her wedding planner, Kayla who I’d worked with on a few occasions. Kayla and I have grown close over the years so I’m always happy to work with her on a project especially a wedding. I remember Cassandra being very nice and detailed when it came to her beauty planning. She knew what she wanted and how she wanted to look overall so she was able to convey her requests but ask questions in the process.


The Wedding Day

When we arrived Cassandra and her party were pulling up as well so we were able to get set up and start almost immediately. I remember they had a good music playlist going and everyone having sort of a chill-laxed attitude. There was no one stressing out or anything. Just everyone hanging out getting their hair and makeup done.

Her hair: Cassandra knew she wanted an updo and showed me inspirations pictures at her wedding consultation and trial. We chose to use the clip-in extensions she’d purchased to add the desired length and fullness for the updo. They matched perfectly and gave us just enough volume to enhance the look.

Her makeup: Not wanting to do anything dramatic, my bride chose a soft natural look with the exception of her eyes… she wanted them to pop. She ended up finding some really pretty lashes that she wanted to incorporate so I used them to add the wow factor.

For the wedding party: Cassandra’s bridesmaids decided on their own hair and makeup looks and team NGB executed them all. We loved working with such a diverse group because we don’t get to do it often. They were beautifully fun gals.
