Lovely Rita

After shot of our bride, Rita and her mother.

After shot of our bride, Rita and her mother.

Here we are featuring a heartwarming story about Rita, one of our brides from June 22, 2013.  Our bride’s mother AND her future mother in law are both battling breast cancer.  Her fiancé’s mom was too under the weather to attend the pre wedding pampering, but Rita’s mom braved the day with full force!

You see, Rita’s mother has been going through treatment for a little over a year, and has not seen herself with hair, eyebrows or eyelashes in about the same amount of time.  That’s when we come into the picture. Liz Alfier not only took care of our beautiful bride, but was able to give her mom a makeup application that will be in pictures for generations.  The moment that Rita’s mother looked into the mirror after Liz finished her makeup, she cried tears of joy! (good thing we use waterproof EVERYTHING!)

She felt beautiful and confident.  We are all in this industry for that very reason.  We love being a part of such a special milestone in people’s lives.  Let these lady’s story cast inspiration, determination and love into your own lives!

Matt Mills One Fight Fund

Matt Mills One Fight Fund, sponsored by behind the Veil Studio and CP Shuckers.

Matt was taken from us August 6th, 2011 with 30 others on the Chinook helicopter that went down in the Wardak region of Afghanistan. He and his brothers gave their lives selflessly so we can live free.

Matt’s wife, Keri, started this fund to help support families who may be devestated by the loss of a family member. Her hope is to have funds available immediately to take care of all household expenditures for the first 90 days after tragedy strikes. When devastation happens, its a fight to stay afloat, and the Matt Mills One Fight Fund was built so that families don’t have to fight alone.
