Have a wonderful Wednesday!
Here’s a love story of one of my dearest bride’s Diana Perri on how she met her prince charming.
Diana and Ore met through a common friend. Ore always knew that beautiful Diana existed but never had the chance to meet her. Until January 2004, where they met at a friend’s small party. Sparks were flying right away and soon enough Diana and Ore started dating.
On June 4, 2009, Ore proposed to Diana at the top of St-Josephs Oratory in front of montreal’s beautiful sunset.
“We would go there often in the summer just to chill and watch the sunset” – Diana told us
Almost 7 years together, their love still continues to grow strong and on September 25 ,2010 Diana and Ore tied the knot.
Hair and Makeup by Sylva K & Team
Thank you Diana for making us a part of your beautiful day,
Doing your own makeup on your wedding day? Here is a tip you should know before applying your eyeliner.
Liquid liner can look very harsh and pencil liner tend to smudge, I’m sure you’ve experienced it! In order to have that soft natural look try using a long lasting gel liner.
Again black may look to harsh against a white gown, so try a dark brown, charcoal or even purple for a soft look.
To use, dip a small angled brush into the pot, wipe against the side of the pot to remove excess. Hold the outer corner of your eye with one hand and apply in small motions, working outward as close to the lash line as possible.
I suggest not to start your line from the inner corner, it will make your eyes look smaller! Start half way, say from your iris! Unless, you have big round eyes, then I would say start from the inner corner.
Till next time,
A white, beautiful and iridescent pearl at the neck can be a simple and lovely finishing touch. A gem once thought so precious that only members of the English Royal family could wear it.
There is a long tradition of fathers giving pearls to their daughter for her wedding gift. This tradition has been so long that it is recorded in the ancient sacred Hindu text, The Rig Veda.
According to this legend, there was a god called Krishna that jumped into the bottom of the sea and brought up the very first pearl to land and offered it to his daughter on her wedding day.
The Greeks called the pearl the “wedding gem” and believed that pearls would prevent for the newlywed bride from crying.
Other cultures think of the pearl representing innocence and purity.
All superstitions aside, today’s bride opt for the classic look and elegant shimmer of a pearl necklace, pearl earrings or beautiful head pieces simply because it’s beautiful!!

Ever wonder why the fourth finger?
With the exception of a few cultures, the engagement and wedding ring are mostly universally placed on the fourth finger of your left hand.
There are a lot of explanantion on how this tradition started but most historians trace it back to the ancient Egyptians. The Egyptians beleived in “Vena Amoris” (veine of love) ran directly from the fourth finger to the heart.
