How many of you are married to a high school classmate?  I can’t imagine it is that many of you! Speaking for myself, I feel I have changed so much from my high school years.  It was hard enough for me to live those changes, much less to try and bring someone else along for the ride. Thank god I met my husband in my mid-twenties haha.  


Well I guess it’s love stories like Natalie and Michael, pictured below, that they make movies about.  I can see the scene now, “Teenage classmates accidentally bump into each other at the bar, suddenly a wave a nostalgia washes over them, what was once nothing more than a high school friendship instantly becomes something more.”  That chance encounter led to a nine year love story! The latest chapter beginning with a very romantically awkward proposal haha. I’ll let Natalie share how Michael surprised her with the big question.


“The proposal was the sweetest. I had just started my maternity leave & needed a day to just relax so we decided to drive up to Ventura beach to just have a chill day. We got ice cream & sat on the beach. I noticed him acting a little awkward the whole day. While we were chatting about where we were going to go have dinner he stood up pretending to stretch & began to kneel down on his knee..I quickly grabbed him & yanked him down knowing instantly what he was about to do..I was so shocked that I reacted so quickly not even noticing I pulled him down to the ground! He asked & I sobbingly blurted out a yes & it’s about time! We cried together & held each other with so much love & joy.”


How sweet is that!  I just love how proposal stories are so unique to each couple.  I can’t wait to meet you and hear your proposal story at your bridal makeup and hair trial.  For more information on the Veil Of Grace Bridal Beauty Team, including service pricing and wedding date availability, please fill out our contact form by clicking the “Book Your Wedding” button below.  We look forward to being an important part of your special day!

Here is a great candid photo of Lead Veil Of Grace Airbrush Makeup and Hairstylist Jessica locking in the perfect bridal updo.  Bridal hairstyling is much more than a couple quick braids and haphazard bobby pins!  An experienced bridal hairstylist will ensure that your hairstyle will not only look good for the ceremony but last through the night.  Nobody wants their hair to fall apart on the dance floor!

A great way to decide how you would like to wear your hair on your wedding day is to schedule a bridal trial.  During this time you will have the opportunity to discuss with your bridal hairstylist the pros and cons of your interested looks.  Lets face it, what looks good on Pinterest might not always be the best choice for your style and personality.  Don’t wait until the “day of” to decide last minute on a hairstyle;  book a bridal trial today!

Our San Diego #VOGbride, Erica, was more gorgeous than ever on her wedding day thanks to lead artist, Rosy. In a modest lace gown and a bright floral headpiece she was the epitome of boho chic wowing us all! Airbrushed neutrals and a mauve lip highlighted her natural beauty while a side braid completed this breathtaking look. The ceremony took place at the La Estancia Hotel amidst sunshine and California greenery. It was such an honor to be a part of these special, stunning moments!

Emily of Emily Magers Photography and Dawn Charles created a space for girlboss photographers to learn and expand their creativity together across the United States. And Veil of Grace was thrilled to provide striking bridal makeup and hair for their Cultivate Workshop in Palm Springs, CA last November.

From fancy braids and sleek waves to daring earth tones, our founder, #VOGSamantha, made each model glow with elegance for the styled shoots.  Both stand-in brides showcase the beauty of neutrals and the ongoing popularity of bolder wedding day looks. We’re still feeling inspired by the experience and invite you to enjoy some of our favorite images below!
