From Bride Model to Real Bride: Our Former Cover Girl Ties The Knot

Local model Marley Chamberlain first met hair and makeup artist Gabby Gabbitas during our editorial shoot; for her wedding, she called upon the beauty pro to style her bridal look once again.

On a sunny day back in 2012, Marley Chamberlain slipped into a white Chantilly lace dress by Modern Trousseau from Alta Moda Bridal, donned vintage pearl earrings, and put on a pair of red patent-leather Kate Spade heels as she prepared to smile for the camera while clutching a lush bouquet of red garden roses. But she wasn’t posing for a portrait on her wedding day: the local model was posing for our “Language of Love” editorial shoot at the Washington School House Hotel in Park City.

The photo shoot—featuring the talented team of photographer Leo Patrone, prop stylist Saucy & Kitsch, hair and makeup artist Gabby Gabbitas, and florist Sarah Winward of Honey of a Thousand Flowers, among others—landed on the cover of our Summer/Fall 2012 issue.

Today, however, the former bride model is taking her turn as a “real” bride, tying the knot to her beau, TJ, in Salt Lake City. For her wedding day, she called upon beauty pro Gabbitas to get her camera ready once again. We got the scoop on Marley’s bridal hair and makeup, as pictured below, from Gabbitas herself:

For Marley’s look, she wanted her eyes to be the focal point. We created a soft smoky eye with a subtle berry lip. For her hair, we created a loose chignon draped slightly off the center. —Gabby Gabbitas
