Sneak Peek: Lara & Sahil!

Wow! What a romantic and picturesque wedding day this was!

These lovebirds had us all tearing up with their heartfelt and hilarious vows, some of the best I've ever heard! Such a beautiful couple, inside and out. We were feeling the love with their longing glances and perfectly choreographed first dance.

There's no denying Lara & Sahil's adoration for one another, and it was such a delight getting to document this truly magical wedding day! Congratulations to the newlyweds!

Shout out to the amazing vendor team, thank you for all your help!

Alyssa and Dan's backyard wedding last weekend was absolutely amazing! We visited the historic mill right down the street from their house for photos, then had the ceremony in their front yard, and reception in the backyard ❤️❤️❤️

Happy Friday, friends! What are you loving this week? I'm loving gallery walls, boxwood wreaths, new rugs, new eps of The Voice, sunshine and warm days in November, engagement sessions, old school nail polish color - Mrs. O'Leary's BBQ, açaí bowls, easy drives, wearing real clothes to run errands, personalized songs, childhood Pinterest boards, caffeine free Diet Coke, Cava, soaking up all the fall candle scents before switching over the holiday scents, new drinking glasses, CBD bath salts, and the idea to create a holiday gift guide featuring my fav small businesses!

When Liz and Adam were planning for their wedding this fall, just the two of them was enough. In the midst of a pandemic, they decided to keep it simple. Just them, a stunningly gorgeous venue, and the ever-so-talented @kir2ben photography was enough. But cue the help of a few other dedicated wedding professionals and their day transformed into an even more magical moment. Head to the link below for more of their hidden garden elopement right here in the heart of Washington, D.C.! ✨

My Story

I am Carla Pressley and I do hair and makeup. I was born in Kentucky on a military base but spent time growing up in Korea. Traveling naturally became a second passion of mine aside from make up and hair styling. I decided to turn this passion into my career, which is why I am here. I began my career in the beauty industry over 10 years ago with PR @ Partners, a Washington D.C. area franchise and MAC Cosmetics.

My love for all things hair and make up led me to create my own business to share this with all of my clients. I am grateful for every opportunity this business has given me, and I want to work together to achieve your goal of feeling fabulous no matter what the occasion. I feel lucky to work with clients of all colors, cultures, hair types, and complexions. I have worked with a variety of people and even some high-profile clients such as Project Runway, Macy’s, and Martha Stewart Weddings amongst others.

I pride myself in helping you feel confident from the inside out, and look forward to meeting you and helping you create the original, irresistible look for any occasion from the wedding aisle to the runway!
