I first met Joyce when we worked an network marketing business together, connected by Danielle Boyce. She was funny, strong willed and I was hooked on her personality. She takes no prisoners, she speaks her mind and she loves her tribe, hard!

We quickly became friends and I watched her journey into happiness when she announced that she was dating a cutie with a beard, Cole. I watched this strong woman fall deeply in love with a local, outstanding chef. Together they started to build this neat new life. I knew Joyce when she was a strong single mother and now she was sharing her passion for entrepreneurship with Cole. I could not be MORE happier for her. (and him too, but this is about her)

Of course, when he proposed, I forced her to let me be her makeup artist. (I’m partially kidding). She asked me for a bold look. Think 20’s inspired but with modern twist. Which feels odd to say since we are in 2020. We went with a deep plum halo eye (yes to shimmer) with a clean polished complexion using my FAVORITE foundation Face Atelier. Of course, Samantha lashes from Huda Beauty to top off this eye. My precious Benefit Cosmetics KaBrow in 6 over her already perfect shaped brow.

I also had the honor of taking care of her entire bridal party.

My husband, Russ and I had a wonderful time at the Slayton wedding. Joyce and Cole have a beautiful family, amazing aspirations and huge goals for themselves. Their hustle is legit … I bow down. All the respect. I love a good hustler.

Please check out their catering business Ono-OhYes on Instagram. A Pan-Pacific American Fusion Experience. Believe me, you do not want to miss their food.

Thank you so much, Joyce and Cole for allowing me to be a part of your wedding.
