There are ‘strata’ of people. There are those that are beautiful as measured by the standard of the the glamour magazines. There are those that are beautiful because of their humor, their kindness, their generosity… there are some people that are rather ‘homely’ Please don’t take offense… I’ve often wondered too if my life in entertainment might have been different if I was a homely man perhaps? At least I don’t have a big goiter growing out of the side of my neck with a greasy eyeball sticking out of it or anything…
I’ve seen brides of all kinds over the years. I am usually able to weed out most ‘bridezillas’ in the consultation process so my customers are mostly wonderful people. I don’t care how pretty or rich someone is, I won’t put up with abuse. This bride was not only charming and sweet but beautiful in the physical realm as well. That said, I’ve seen some physically beautiful brides blow it with the wrong dress or with a bad make-up job by a friend or family member as opposed to a professional make-up artist. I’ve seen others that were rather ordinary when I met them during a consultation but who really shined on wedding day with great hair, makeup and the right dress.
This was a Vera Wang gown and when I heard that she had altered it with a thing on the hip and some other adjustments, I thought she was crazy but when I saw it, I knew she was exactly right. She chose the perfect dress, she changed it up slightly and made it her own, it was the perfect hair, the perfect make-up, the perfect veil.
To top it all off, she was/is just an absolute sweetheart.
