Vintage Wedding Makeup – 1920’s

by Rachel Poling

I got a Facebook message from a photographer asking if I was available for a vintage 1920’s styled wedding shoot the next day, as her makeup artist was very ill and she needed a backup. I’m always super excited to do vintage wedding makeup. It provides a nice challenge with a little bit of research needed and I’ve always loved the little ways the different decades are differentiated and how adding one or two elements can take an otherwise modern look back to the past. The photographer sent me some reference images for the makeup and I brushed up on my pin curl techniques the night before, I made a few calls and squeezed my schedule around, packed up my kit (with lots of bobby pins!) and drove up to Queen Anne in Seattle the next morning for the shoot.

The Wedding Vendors

I’m super stoked to have met Irene at, as she’s recently become one of my favorite local wedding photographers to work with. Aren’t these photos gorgeous! The shoot took place at The Clubhouse of Queen Anne, with the amazing design of the wedding done by the amazing Celise of Celise Callahan Event & Wedding Design. The beautiful antique elements were supplied by Vintage Ambience and the gorgeous, gorgeous floral design was by Julia’s Floral. Sarah and David Eno were the wonderful models, and the beautiful dress Sarah is wearing was provided by Cicada Bridal.

You never know when something good is going to fall into your lap! I’m so glad it worked out for me to be a part of this shoot with these amazing vendors. I had a great time before I had to run back down to Bonney Lake for my other appointments. The pictures turned out gorgeous and I got my vintage wedding makeup and hair fix for a while.

If you are looking for vendors for your wedding in Seattle, please check out the vendors from this shoot. They are all amazing, professional, super nice, super talented people who will make your event beautiful beyond belief. I highly recommend them all!
