The Sun is Always Shining on West Point!

 I love West Point Brides and Grooms and Sarah and Eric are no exception.  They got married on a sunny day in May with a special angel watching over them.

Meredith and Melissa: The Beauty Dream Team

Some things just go together. Peanut butter and jelly. Cookies and milk. Meredith and Melissa... Wait, what?

Seriously though, Meredith Hayman and Melissa Scrofani work together so often they might as well be packaged in a pretty little two pack. These beauty gurus love working alongside each other—and it shows! Take a look at a few of their beautiful, blushing brides.

 Aside from the stunning final product their collaboration inevitably produces, there's the fact that these two genuinely like each other. Here's what they have to say:

"Meredith is an amazing makeup artist whose expertise and terrific style is only surpassed by her enthusiasm and energy for what she does best. Her friendly disposition makes it easy for brides to communicate to her their visions. She is an extremely talented artist. I am always confident when working with Meredith that her makeup application will be flawless." —Melissa
"Not only is Melissa one of the best stylists I've worked with, her styles are current without being trendy. She is a perfectionist and strives to give each and every bride exactly the look she wants. She is an expert in her field and on top of her game. Working side-by-side with someone so talented is inspiring. Our styles really complement each other—we make the perfect bridal beauty team!" —Meredith
I don't know about you, but I find such an enthusiastic collaboration pretty comforting—especially when on the hunt for vendors for such a major life event. A pair that knows each other and work well together (like, say, Lucy and Ethel)? That sounds like a pretty good bet to me!
