I'm always so excited to get a "real wedding" from Liz!  I love the way she writes, I know the quality of her work and the type of client she attracts, and I always know it's going to be a simply stunning event.  So imagine my delight when she sent me Lauren and Eric's wedding at The Mount, complete with not one, not two, but SIX Collective members all working together!  So without further adieu, I give you...

A word from Liz: Lauren’s wedding was planned from afar, making it one of several Berkshires destination weddings I had the pleasure of working on this year. (I was hired by and primarily in contact with her mom during the planning process.) But when Lauren and her sister came for their makeup preview sessions, it was clear we were a great match… and it was also clear that really good eyebrows run in the family!

Lauren is blessed with huge green eyes naturally, but plum-toned shadows, plenty of eyeliner, and a full set of fluttery lashes helped them pop even more. I loved the final look and how well it complemented her features, and am pleased to share photos and a short video (including a spectacular drone’s-eye-view of the elegant venue!).
