The beginning of one of the biggest days of your life has to start with perfect hair and makeup… and we know just the lady! Madison Dennis, owner of MHD Beauty, has been a freelance makeup artist for the past 3.5 years. Madison has experience in all aspects of the Beauty world such as fashion, pageantry, and weddings while also creating her own like of MHD cosmetics. To learn a little more about Madison and her business we asked her a few questions:

Beauty, Vision In White Events

What was your dream job growing up?

When I was growing up I always joked that I would like to be either a meteorologist, work in the music business, or be a cosmetologist.

What does a typical wedding day look like for you?

On a typical Saturday during peak wedding season, our wedding hair & makeup team has anywhere from 3-5 wedding parties & brides to style for. I will usually get up and check traffic reports while drinking my coffee, letting the team know of any potential travel delays or accidents they should be aware of, and just generally being available for check ins and emergency phone calls from them. Then, I will get ready and head out to take care of my bride for the day.

How did you get into the beauty business?

Growing up, I was always the friend that did others’ hair & makeup for prom, pageants, weddings, etc. Also, as a singer and performer (theatre, etc), I’ve always done my own hair & makeup for the stage. After competing in the Miss Tennessee pageant in 2013, I was presented with an opportunity to travel across the country with a pageant hair & makeup team to do hair & makeup for a large national pageant. After that experience, I was hooked, and began taking my craft seriously and building my clientele.

How long have you been in business? Why did you decide to start a business?

My business, MHD Beauty, LLC, has been in existence since 2014, but I have been styling hair & makeup on other people since 2006. I graduated with a Music Business degree in 2011 from Belmont University and began working in the music industry. While I loved the entertainment business and where I worked, I really felt called to own a business. My husband, also an entrepreneur, and I were married in 2014, and he inspired me to begin my beauty business. I was able to quit my music industry gig and focus on my beauty business full time in January 2015.

What is your favorite part of a wedding day/event day?

My favorite part is when everyone is styled and the girls are getting ready to change out of their robes into their gowns. It is such a fun time, because everyone looks so beautiful and is ready to get the day’s events rolling.

What is your favorite wedding day hairstyle?

To be honest, I do not favor one particular hairstyle over the other. My favorite bridal hairstyle is one that makes the bride feel like the best, most stylish version of herself, and one that she is comfortable wearing throughout the day. For some, that is a textured, curly updo, for others, it is something more chic and sleek. I’ve had brides wear their hair completely down, ones that wear their hair in the highest princess updo, and everything in between. I genuinely enjoy creating them all.

Who would be your dream celebrity to style and get ready for their wedding day?

I mean, if Dolly Parton got married again, I would sign up for that job immediately. Dolly is a one-of-a-kind individual. I absolutely adore everything she says and does, and it would be an honor just to be in her presence. But, Dolly loves some glamour, and so do I, so I think it’d be a great fit.

If you could go anywhere tomorrow, where would you go?

If I could pick up and go somewhere tomorrow it would definitely be to an all-inclusive resort in the Bahamas. I’m a big fan of the beach – to me, it is the ultimate relaxation spot. My husband & I had the opportunity to go to an all-inclusive resort for our honeymoon and it was just the most exquisite experience. Not having to worry about paying for things, or driving anywhere, and having the staff take care of everything for you was just a dream.

Getting Ready

Jessica and her bridesmaids wasted no time and began to get ready for the big day! With the help from Amanda and Julia, the girls looked beautiful with their hair and makeup complete. Jessica was excited to get into her very elegant lace dress that was paired perfectly with these beautiful jeweled flats. Her mom was able to put the finishing touches on the dress, and Jessica was ready to show her dad his little girl!

Ceremony Details

Jessica and Colin chose the very beautiful Marathon Village to have their special day take place! Marathon Village didn’t need many decorations because of its natural beauty and views of Nashville. The couple added their own little touches with an arbor that had ivory drapery hanging from it and candles with eucalyptus greenery lining the aisle.

The centerpieces were all different and looked so good together! There were arrangements of flowers and candles that decorated the tables. The guest’s favors were also a part of the centerpieces that were little mason jar candles. The cake had a beautiful ombre color that tasted so wonderful along with the cupcakes made by Nashville Sweets.

There is nothing quite like the day that your favorite person gets down on one knee and asks you to spend the rest of your life with them. The next few weeks to follow bring lots of celebration of the new engagement ring! The sparkle and shine can be mesmerizing to all who view its beauty, but with beautiful bling comes big responsibility of keeping it cleaned and shiny! Whether it is everyday wear and tear, lotion, or fingerprints these are just a few things can dull the shine… and no one wants that! Therefore to help keep the sparkle we have listed a few of our favorite solutions!

Vision In White Events, Engagement Ring

Home Remedies

Most people do not realize some of the quick and easy ways that you can clean your ring are found in everyday household items! A few home remedies that will help the bling really shine are:

  1. Water
  2. Liquid Soap
  3. Ammonia (Small Amount)
  4. Toothbrush or Eyebrow Brush

All of these items can be placed in a small bowl and used to clean the ring effeciently!

Vision In White Events, Engagement Ring

Store Bought Items

Store bought solutions can be useful as they are often a way to get a deeper clean without a large cost. The ultrasonic machine cleaner can be a helpful tool but must be used with delicacy by only using it when a deep clean is needed. Some other store bought solutions such as Alka Seltzer tablets, Windex, and Simple Shines’ line of jewelry cleaner are also very useful!

Vision In White Events, Engagement Ring

Professional Services

When it comes to having your ring professionally cleaned you know that it will be shining brighter than any other when it returns to you! There are many choices for where and how you would like the ring to be cleaned. These services can also sometime be found under a warranty that comes with the purchase of the ring!

On November 11, 2017, Lauren and Michael continued their love story after saying “I Do” while being surrounded by close friends and family. It was such a beautiful fall day that we were honored to be a part of. Their wedding was filled with love and happiness that will continue to shine through their happily ever after!

Vision In White Events, Wedding

Getting Ready

As Lauren began to get ready for her big day, she took a moment to herself to read beautifully written letters from her friends and family. This was such a sweet moment for Lauren, and she will treasure these letters that were put into a keepsake scrapbook.

Vision In White Events, Wedding

The girls were having the time of their life while getting ready at Brentwood Country Club. Lauren had gifted her bridesmaids with comfy lounge clothes to wear as they got pampered by Shani Gailbreath. Shani did a great job with hair and makeup for the girls to be ready to walk down the aisle.

Lauren’s shoes complimented the blush tint in her dress that was covered with elegant white lace. The pop of burgundy in the bride’s bouquet matched perfectly with the bridesmaid’s dresses.

With the help of her mom, Lauren was ready to show her dad how stunning she looked. He was just in awe of how beautiful she was and couldn’t believe his baby girl was getting married. We love these intimate moments that were shared between the mother and father and the bride! Lauren had gifted her dad with a tie that was embroidered with a sweet message. She wanted to make sure her dad knew she loved him very much!

First Look

After everyone had finished getting ready, the bride and groom were ready to do their first look! It was so sweet how Lauren went up behind Michael and grabbed his hands. Michael could not hold back after seeing how beautiful Lauren looked, and he went in for a kiss. They were so happy that Erin Turner captured this sweet and intimate moment.

Now it was time for the wedding party to join in. The bridesmaids looked amazing in their long, burgundy dresses. The groomsmen also looked handsome in their black tuxedos with burgundy ties that complemented the bridesmaid’s dresses perfectly! It was amazing to see the wedding party being so excited for the happy couple and their future together! We loved how classic the bouquet and boutonniere went with the fall colors in the dresses and ties.

Ceremony Details

Lauren and Michael had their ceremony at Christ Presbyterian Church. The entry table had a unique guest book with photos of the couple to be written in with sweet messages from the guests to the bride and groom.  Lauren and Michael really wanted their guests to be present during the ceremony, so they requested the guests to unplug and turn off all devices so they could really it. As guests were escorted to their seats, they saw how elegant the ceremony was with the aisle being lined in arrangements filled with roses, hydrangeas, and carnations that matched the girl’s bouquets.

Now it was time everyone had been waiting for! The groom was in awe when he saw his bride walking down the aisle by her father’s side, and so was the bride when she saw her groom waiting for her at the end of the aisle.

Vision In White Events, Wedding

The ceremony was beautiful and had a touch of tradition with the unity candle that was engraved with their wedding date. Love filled the air when the bride and groom exchanged their vows for one another. Lauren and Michael were pronounced husband and wife and sealed their vows with a kiss!

Reception Details

Once the ceremony was over, the guests headed to the reception that was held at Brentwood Country Club. As they walked into the reception area, the guests continued to feel the love between Lauren and Michael when they saw pictures of the couple and read the timeline of their love story. If there were any guests that had not signed the guest book before the ceremony, they had the opportunity to sign it before the reception started. It was not hard for guests to find their assigned table on this beautiful board. Lauren and Michael wanted to make sure their guests knew how much they loved and appreciated them, so they gifted them with a custom designed organic bag of coffee.

Vision In White Events, Wedding

The tables were decorated with little arrangements of flowers in gold vases and candlelit lanterns that set for a romantic night at Brentwood Country Club. The cake was made by Nashville Sweets and had the bride and grooms names as the cake topper. They didn’t want any guests to miss out on sweets so they had a table full of delicious donuts that catered to everyone’s preference.

After dinner was served, Lauren and Michael cut the cake and drank champagne. Then it was time for the very emotional father/daughter and mother/son dance, there was not a dry eye in the room. It was time for guests to get out on the dance floor and bust a move. Nashville Party Authority did a great job at playing a mix of songs as they danced the night away.
