Nicki and Bill's San Diego Wedding

From our bride Nicki,

“Many, many years ago I lived in Albany, NY, but moved away soon after visiting sunny California.  I just loved San Diego.  Of course, over the years, I still kept in touch with friends and family in the Albany, NY area via Facebook.  I saw a picture of Alayne doing makeup for a friend in Albany for a commercial shoot she was part of and couldn’t believe what I saw!! I’m not even sure I was dating my now husband yet!

The day I got engaged, and started planning our wedding–a mere 6 months away…I immediately reached out because although there are sooo many talented hairdressers and makeup artists here in San Diego (my own hairdresser does hair for So You Think You Can Dance, The Voice and other well known shows), there was no doubt in my mind that Alayne would be my girl.

She is booked years in advance, but…as fate would have it, she was free that one weekend in July.  Or should I say, that one day…  You see, Alayne was already scheduled to do hair and makeup for a national pageant in Orlando, Florida right after my wedding.  I live in California.  And yet, this wonder woman agreed to fly out, do my hair and makeup–including my entire bridal party (on her own), attend the ceremony, and catch a flight to Florida early, early the next morning.

Not only is she Fabulous.  She’s Extraordinary beyond belief, as beautiful inside as she is stunning outside, and I am grateful, honored and blessed to have had her for my wedding day.

The pictures speak for themselves, but I will tell you–i’m not even offended when I show people my wedding photos, and they respond with–“that’s not you!”  Yeah…it was.  :-)”

Thank you Nicki for having me and the pleasure was all mine. And BTW, I can completely see why you fell in love with San Diego!!! I can’t wait to come back!!!
