Last September 8, 2014 was the wedding of one of my favorite and sweetest clients, Isha πŸ™‚Β  I first met her when I did her makeup for her prom.Β  Such a smart and beautiful lady, this one.Β  Then I’d see her one prom after another.Β  Haha!Β  Such a heartthrob!Β  Then it was her grad ball then debut πŸ™‚Β  I remember I was almost about to give birth during her debut but I really didn’t want to miss that day.

I was so happy and excited when I found out she was engaged and that she wanted me to save the date to be her makeup artist for the wedding!Β  I was too excited.Β  Isha is like a younger sister to me.Β  And on this wonderful Monday morning in September, I was at her house, reunited with the kindest family, the De Vera’s πŸ™‚

I was also so excited to see my handmade crocheted dolls in Liza’s room! πŸ™‚Β  Liza is Isha’s beautiful mom who adopted two of my Googlees.Β  Awwww, thanks so much, Liza πŸ™‚Β  They’re so lucky to be in such a beautiful home πŸ™‚
