Now that winter has made its frosty arrival, switching up your current make up routine is a must. Channeling the essence of the season, sparkling eye shadows, “wind kissed” cheeks, and rich lip colors not only look “natural” this time of the year, but work well on everyone.

We’ve had the pleasure of working with some incredible wedding makeup artists over the years. Watching them work their behind-the-scenes-magic so that every bride radiates walking down the aisle is one of the best perks of our job. We couldn’t think of anyone more qualified to dish advice on winter beauty than these talented ladies!

Featured Bride Lorenza On Her Beautiful Ceremony At The Church of St. Paul the Apostle

Lorenza & Pete Wedding – Wedding Party – Ceremony – Church of St. Paul the Apostle – by The Hons

 

“I’ve always loved the tradition that you go to a church and get married,” says Bride & Blossom Featured Bride Lorenza. “Both Pete and I are Catholic and our faith is very important to us. We both have nostalgic memories of going to church as children and wanted the rituals and songs to be part of our wedding.”

Part 3: Ceremony

It’s not uncommon these days for a couple to have both their ceremony and reception at the venue, especially in New York City. At the same time, the city is full of beautiful churches ideal for a religious ceremony. One in particular stood out to Lorenza. “When I was at CNN, my work schedule was pretty busy,” she says. “The Church of St. Paul the Apostle was just a block away from my office, so I would go there for mass when time allowed. And every time I walked through the doors, I was overtaken by its beauty.”

Heading into the holiday season, we couldn’t think of anyone better to have as our featured bride for December than Lorenza. She and Pete celebrated saying “I do” on an enchanted winter’s day at the New York Botanical Garden. Here, Lorenza shares the first part of their love story.

Proposal & Planning 

In a time when casual dating via social apps is like a sport, Lorenza wanted something with more substance. Looking back, she says, “It was the busiest time of my professional career. I was a producer at CNN covering the 2016 election. Despite my busy work-life, I knew I was ready to meet someone special.” So upon the suggestion of a colleague, she joined, with some apprehension, the paid dating website, Match.com.
