old hollywood glamour

On October 19th, 2014 I had the joy of working with my very good friend of 17 years and amazing fellow Makeup Artist, Hope Landry Cilen for her wedding to Errol Cilen at Watermark in Asbury Park, NJ overlooking the Atlantic ocean. I am so honored to have provided Hope with hair and makeup for her most special day. Hope and I together have glammed up countless Brides and their bridal parties for the past 17 years so it was a treat to have Hope be on the opposite end of the brush for a change!

Hope has always had an appreciation and love for old Hollywood Glamour and wanted to emulate that style for her wedding day hair and makeup. From head to toe, Hope radiated absolute perfection, grace, joy and old Hollywood glam. I had a lot of fun collaborating with Hope to design her wedding day hair and makeup. In all my years of knowing and working with Hope I don’t think I have ever seen her more stunning and happier! It was such a special day for all that know and love Hope and Errol.

Watermark in Asbury Park, NJ is such a spectacular venue. It is a gorgeous and modern indoor/outdoor lounge with stunning panoramic views of Asbury Park Beach. My husband and I really loved how elegant and modern yet casual of a setting Watermark is for a private event. The entire celebration was free flowing with great dance music provided by DJ Mick Hale, an open bar complete with the couple’s signature cocktails, scrumptious passed hors d’oeuvres and select food stations for every type of foodie including a desert spread to absolutely die for! Talk about food eye candy!!! The staff at Watermark was also exceptional and friendly!

Asbury Park, NJ and nearby Ocean Grove, NJ are a nice complement to each other of eclectic and charming and a great escape for a weekend getaway or extended summer vacation! Check out the Gorgeous photos below of the epic wedding day provided by Photographer, Eric Westpheling.

Congratulations Hope and Errol! We wish you a lifetime of love, laughter, blessings and joy!
