In other fabulous news, Style Me Pretty picked up this gorgeous wedding of mine from last year.  Genna came to me last year with very specific direction for her hair and makeup.  The result was ethereal and elegant, perfect for her glam rustic venue at Murray Hill.  Special thanks to Victoria Berkeley hair and makeup artist who worked with me on this wedding.
