Quin Woodward Pu & the Little Black Blog

One of our favorite things about attending DC’s fabulous bridal shows is all of the amazing and creative people we get to meet! At the Unveiled show a few weeks ago, we had the opportunity to get to know and provide makeup for Quin Woodward Pu, the Editor-in-Chief of the Little Black Blog. The Little Black Blog is an events and society “politi-couture” blog for the greater DC metro area – we think it is pretty awesome and had to share! Be sure to check out the write-up on her time at the Unveiled event. It’s a fun and informative recap!

A Chic Affair - THIS weekend!

Exciting news from the Carola Myers Team! We are so delighted to share that we will not only be hosting a booth at this Sunday’s A Chic Affair event, but we will also be providing our hair and makeup services for its bridal fashion runway show!  The event, which will take place at the Long View Gallery in DC, will certainly be a chic one - with everything from cake & champagne tastings and a mini-spa to the avant garde runway show and a “man cave” for your grooms-to-be to be pampered while you peruse! It is sure to be an amazing and indulgent day, one that you don’t want to miss. See you there!

Carola Myers Team Works with Local Singer/Songwriter, Julia Fanning

One of the favorite parts of our day at the Engaged! Magazine bridal show was getting to work with local singer/songwriter, Julia Fanning. She performed with the band, Nation, at the bridal show and blew everyone away! We were so happy to be able to do her makeup for the big performance.

Julia is part of Elan Artists, a cooperative of musicians who specialize in unique soloists, ensembles, DJs, dance bands and more for weddings in the greater DC metro area. Brides-to-be, they’re definitely worth checking out!
