CT Bridal Hair and Makeup at La Bella Vista | KiSSandMaKeUp Bride


November 18, 2020

CT bridal hair and makeup at La Bella Vista for this 2020 wedding was delayed due to COVID, but all the waiting made it even more special! 2020 was obviously a tough year to be planning a wedding, but our KiSSandMaKeUp bride, Lauren, didn’t let it stop her love story! Read all about COVID planning (and REplanning) and view her gorgeous bridal look below.

Lauren and her now husband, Jordan, met back in middle school. They briefly “dated” as teens and then reconnected during college. After impatiently waiting, they got engaged on a trip to Jamaica in March 2019. Their original plan was to get married on June 20, 2020. Due to COVID, they weren’t able to have their June wedding as initially planned, but instead they had a small, intimate backyard wedding with immediate family. It turned out to be such a special day with some of their most important people!

Fast forward to September and they were able to have a wedding reception with the rest of the bridal party, family, and friends at La Bella Vista. The staff at La Bella Vista are so kind and willing to go the extra mile for their couples. Their food is amazing too!


“Our florist, Melissa from Stylish Blooms, is so talented and was able to make our vision come to life with her bouquets and centerpieces. The photographer, Stacy Smith, captured our love and celebration with amazing photos.”


“I’m so happy we chose KiSSandMakeUp for hair and makeup! A huge thank you to Ashley, Vanessa, Shirley, and Sasha who did an awesome job on everyone’s hair and makeup! A special thank you to Ashley and Shirley for making me feel so beautiful on my special day. They both are truly SO talented! Pam, the owner of KiSSandMaKeUp was great to work with. She was so determined to make sure my day was perfect. She’s also so positive and full of great energy! She has created a great team and business!  Also, another special thank you to Randi, who was always so responsive and uplifting during a crazy time of wedding planning – you were wonderful!! Thank you again to such a great team!” – Lauren

Ashley gave Lauren a glowy, natural but flawless bridal makeup look, while Shirley killed it with some modern day glam Hollywood waves. So chic! Thank you, Lauren, for trusting us with your wedding day hair and makeup. We are wishing you and Jordan a lifetime of happiness ahead!
