We would like to proudly introduce Knot Couture’s MUAH and friend, Susan Osborne. Susan has been working her hair and make up magic dating back to our very first photo shoot. She has been a large part of the behind the scenes for just about every photo shoot and fashion show we have had. We have thrown her many curve balls such as locations with no running water and electricity – you would never be able to tell from how amazing she made our models look! Below are some photos of Susan in action.
Recently, Susan got engaged and we jumped at the chance of asking her to write a guest blog for us to show the world her wedding planning tips and ideas, and to share her wedding story. Without further adieu here is Susan:
Where do you start? A relationship always comes from a series of weird and awkward events that always seem to end up right where things are intended to be in life. You meet your soul mate at a Halloween party, as he is dressed up like Robert Smith from the Cure and you can’t help but think, who is this guy and where does he get his eyeliner? Well, the hair was all Aqua Net and eyeliner was pure Maybelline but there was something really…just real about this guy. Little did I know, I would fall in love with that big hair and kohl lined eyes. It would take a few years and a few awkward exchanges, a loves gone bad, a few parties gone good, but I got my man.
September 20, 2011, Matt (aka Robert Smith) sent me a camera phone picture of a cross stitch piece that was proudly displayed in a home he was working in that day. It read… Grow Old With Me, The Best Is Yet To Be. Well, I thought it was the sweetest, but thought nothing more of it. Later that night, sitting on his lap after the lovely meal he made, I could tell something was on his mind. I asked “ What’s wrong?” and he responded “ I feel anxious”. Me being me, my mind went to a million and one different horrible scenarios in five seconds. Five very long seconds. “Why do you feel anxious?” I asked. “It’s what’s in my pocket.” He reached to his pocket and pulled from it a beautiful vintage engagement ring and asked me to marry him! I said yes!
Thank you Susan! What a love story! Susan will continue to blog about her wedding plans up until her wedding day 2/22/2012. We postponed Susan’s first blog a bit so we could sneak in photos of her engagement shoot, and man we are glad we did! Take a look below at how cute they are together!
