Katie + Russ | Beach Wedding | Steve Depino Photography | Upstyle Hair + Makeup Artists

As the New England weather fluctuates between winter + spring, we're left longing for those warm, summer days spent in the golden light, barefoot with salty hair. Katie + Russ's wedding brings us back to that scene, as Steve so perfectly captured on their wedding day this past year. 

We spent the morning with the girls in Katie + Russ's beautifully renovated cottage by the beach in Rhode Island. Katie's look was romantic + bohemian with loose waves and warm brown tones - the definition of a natural beauty. 

If you are looking for some decorating inspiration (and like cats, of course) be sure to check out Katie's Instagram handle, @driftwoodgypsy - It's full of pictures of their cute cottage and life by the sea, not to mention she's one of the sweetest people you'll meet! (if you can't tell we're probably her biggest fans, we love you Katie!)

Danielle + Colin | Lace Factory Wedding | Upstyle Onsite Hair and Makeup

We had the pleasure of hanging out with Danielle and her closest friends and family the morning of her wedding this past summer at the Griswold Inn in downtown Essex, CT. Danielle and Colin tied the knot at the Lace Factory - one of our favorite venues by the Connecticut shore. Their boho/industrial wedding was something out of a dream - beautiful rugs, wild bouquets and lush greenery that covered candlelit tables and hung from the ceiling. Danielle was gorgeous in an intricately fringed + beaded gown, loose curls, and flowers in her hair. 

Shout out to this insanely talented team who helped curate this beautiful day.

2016 Recap - Upstyle Hair + Makeup

I think we all felt a little off this year. It seems like everybody was ready to hit the reset button on January 1st and kiss 2016 goodbye. There were a lot of ups + downs, but for us here at Upstyle it was a year full of much change + growth. We worked with incredible brides, collaborated on some of our all time favorite shoots, got featured in our first magazine and met new vendors who quickly became friends. We moved into our first studio (!!!) and are now in the process of building an amazing team. We are so excited to see what beauty this new year will bring, and even more excited to show you
all what we have in store. 

We've combined our favorite moments from this past year. A big thank you to all of the vendors that make these weddings come together and to the most wonderful brides <3
