2014 Middleburg Film Festival

Yet another extraordinary year at the Middleburg Film Festival! This intimate event, which was founded in 2013 by one of our favorite and most fabulous clients, Sheila Johnson, screens a carefully curated collection of films in a spectacular setting - and hosts quite the array of guests and honorees. Last year, the festival honored actor Bruce Dern. This year, the festival chose to honor Colleen Atwood and Marco Beltrami as this year’s Distinguished Costume Designer and Distinguished Film Composer. 

We were so thrilled to provide Colleen Atwood's makeup for her appearance at the awards ceremony. What an amazingly creative woman - from Johnny Depp’s black leather body suit in “Edward Scissorhands” to Roxy and Velma’s sequined flapper dresses in “Chicago”, Atwood has designed some of the most iconic costumes during her thirty‐year career. Working with Colleen was such an honor and so much fun!

A Dominican Republic Wedding

We had the wonderful opportunity to fly south for our beautiful bride Anna, whose wedding took place in Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic. The tropical weather on the island was amazing and its exquisite resorts were spectacular! Anna looked just stunning for her beach wedding and her makeup remained flawless throughout the day, even with that Caribbean heat and humidity!

Destination events and weddings really offers the opportunity to visit exotic locations and learn about new cultures! We were so lucky to visit different parts of the island afterwards!

Stay tuned for more features on our recent destination weddings. In the meantime, we invite you to daydream with us as we pictures ourselves on the beach, under a couple of palm trees, tropical drink in hand!
