Real MYD Wedding: Carla & Kevin | Charleston, SC


At Makeup for Your Day we love to travel! So, when one of our brides says she is planning to get married in one of our favorite cities of all time we jump at the opportunity!

We all know Charleston, SC as one of the premiere destination wedding sites of the South, and Carla and Kevin’s wedding proves exactly why. The combination of a beautiful beach, amazing architecture, and of course the abundance of culture makes the perfect backdrop to your perfect day!






For this bride the opportunity to walk with her father down this picturesque dock on her way to her groom made for amazing memories captured by her photographer, and cherished by husband and wife forever.Charleston-Wedding-20


Their intimate ceremony was followed by the quintessential romantic carriage ride through  the streets of Charleston.

Carla’s wedding day style is classic and chic. Going with a glamorous soft makeup look paired with soft curls makes Carla the perfect example of a Southern bride.

Popular with today’s bride is the half up half down style. It allows for elegance and romance, sophistication and comfort, and for Carla works amazing with the dimension in her hair and the neckline of her dress.

It’s important when choosing your look for any occasion to take into account your face shape and bone structure. When adding volume to your crown it creates height and elongates rounder face shapes, whereas adding width to the sides helps to create focus on cheek bones and widen more oval face shapes. Carla’s soft look has created a balance of width and height accentuating her features and drawing attention to the off-shoulder silhouette of her dress and features her decolletage.

Even with all this style talk this couple really knows how to let their hair down! Their reception was held at Fish, one of Charleston’s top seafood restaurants located in a historic 1830’s home. Talk about history!
