Justin Darling, Darling Wedding Productions

Justin Darling graduated college and never used his degree! Imagine the conversation of telling everybody he was going to be a DJ! That was 15 years ago and he's never looked back. Known for his ability to convince his wife that: "Yes dear, we should buy the gear. It will make us money", Justin spares no attention to detail. From lights to photobooths, special effects to now video production, Darling Wedding Productions enjoys a solid reputation of professional, fun entertainment. If you were to write a book on how to be a DJ, Justin breaks every single rule but somehow makes it work. There's a million DJs doing it by the book--he'll just go on and write his own!

Photographers: 

Dana Bartholomew, Dana Marie Photography

Photography has been a creative outlet and passion of mine for more than ten years.  I started with film and learning on a 35mm camera how to "paint with light" and develop the negatives and it took off from there.

My business began in the age of digital photography and trying a little bit of everything and has stayed that course.  Not limiting myself to one genre of photography keeps me and my skills on my toes and I love having a variety in my schedule.  People ask often what my favorite is and it is people, I love capturing people and helping them look and feel their best and women in particular.

In my spare time I enjoy spending time playing on the beach, collecting tattoos and playing piano. I am a huge Dave Matthews Band fan and if they are playing in Virginia Beach or Philly you just might see me there!

Giveaways:

Kara Waggoner, Kara Waggoner Beauty

Kara Waggoner Beauty began in my home studio aka “kitchen” of Richmond VA in 2016. With my amazing hubby pushing me to chase my dreams, I literally started from the bottom. I fell in love with the city of RVA and all of my sweet clients over the past 4 years. Relocating to the eastern shore of Maryland, I am back on my old stomping grouds ready to get you glam on your big day! 2020 has been a year of change, growth and reflection. Princess Waggoner (and big fur sister Lilly) is often mommy’s secretary and has challenged me to be a better wife, mom, and business owner. I have totally revamped my beauty kit to contain only the best non-toxic, vegan, cruelty-free, long- wearing products. I am committed to continuing to seek out sustainably sourced and ethical cosmetics companies to support. My clients deserve to have beautiful, airbrushed, glowing skin on their wedding day without worry!
Makeup is not a “one size fits all.” I craft each look customized to your skin tone, eye color, wardrobe and desires. I am CONFIDENT about what I apply on your skin, I know that each brand I support aims to leave small footprints on the planet, provide non toxic ingredients, and also save our sweet fur friends.

JUST A LITTLE GIRL WITH A DREAM….I still remember my mom-mom taking me to the Clinique counter when I was 9 years old. I felt like a princess applying my "rouge" as she called it. It was love at first sight, I was hooked. 10 years following, in 2004, my professional makeup artist journey with MAC cosmetics began. YUP- I actually quit nursing school to follow my heart. After becoming advanced certified, I moved to Tampa, Florida to take on a new challenge as Operations Manager for MAC at International Plaza. Pursuing my dreams in 2009, I took on the big apple, New York City, where I opened the Shu Uemura Counter in the flagship store Bloomingdales on 59th Street. I was trained under the lead master artists of the Shu Uemura brand and embraced my new city life living in Chelsea. Over the past 14 years (I swear I'm on my third 29th birthday lol), I have also had the honor of working as Store Manager for Bare Escentuals, ULTA Prestige Beauty Manager, Macy’s Cosmetic Department Manager and finished my retail highlight as Territory Manager for Laura Mercier for MD/DC/VA. The most memorable day of my career was working with GUESS and Calvin Klein and supermodel Danielle Knudson. I have also had the honor of working with Lisa Martinaglia, South African supermodel.
