Eloping is the way to marry your partner without the hassles of a big, traditional wedding.
When you choose to elope outdoors in nature, you let go of the need to have certain services, traditions, and events happen to fulfill expectations.
Once there is no crowd to please, you can choose to opt out of things like having guests make speeches or paying for a big dinner for guests.
One thing we encourage you to keep on your YES list is having professional hair and makeup done!
This is ONE day of your life where you can leave the getting-ready to someone else and you can free yourself up to feel into the moments before your elopement unfolds.
We are thrilled to have AnaRie Beauty, Asheville Hair and Makeup Team as a preferred vendor for our couples for hair and makeup!
Here’s why we love this incredible team!
It’s an art to find a balance between a wedding look like is practical for weather plus hiking, and also provides a sense of glamor.
AnaRie Beauty does an absolutely incredible job getting our brides and couples ready for the trail.
Even natural, trail-blazing brides like the ones who elope outdoors find themselves wanting a little shine and style on their wedding day – and there’s a way to keep things natural as well!
AnaRie knows how to bring out your most beautiful features with their classic, romantic hair and makeup services.
They listen to you about how you feel about wearing makeup and what your priorities are.
And their hair stylists and makeup professionals are highly trained in trends as well as keeping looks classic and cohesive.
Because you are choosing to elope, you probably won’t be getting ready with a ton of friends or family around.
This means the vibe of your hair and makeup team matter so much!
AnaRie is known for their laid-back and easy going stylists’ who also happen to be unbelievably talented and professional.
Flexible, patient, and great at communicating are some of the best ways to describe their team members and it all starts from their owner Ali Lawless, who is well-known in Asheville for bringing beauty and warmth with her everywhere she goes! When an owner is good vibes, they naturally gravitate toward hiring others who can be an extension of their best qualities and talents. This is definitely the case with AnaRie as you can see from this recent review:
“Even after the first interaction with AnaRie, I knew I was working with an experienced, professional, and super sweet group!
The hair stylist, Samantha, and the Makeup Artist, Natalie, were super easy to work with. They were highly professional, asking for feedback during the process, and had such talent and experience to bring my vision to life!
My favorite part of the whole experience was how personable everyone was, and the heart they put into their work. They genuinely wanted me to be happy with my look and add to the excitement of my wedding. I always felt that I was in good hands!” – Colleen Davis
We just love seeing how happy our brides feel and how beautiful they look in the photos and videos, thanks to AnaRie!
Never have we ever went to photograph the Bride and felt like the makeup was too translucent or too heavy – it always looks so light and natural.
This means flawless-faced close-ups and more confident brides.
Seriously, we do not how they do it because every time we see a Bride they just look so lovely and fitting in the natural setting they have chosen.
