A closer look at the details and the team behind #DYFVirginia2018 ❤️ Swipe to view the slideshow! Dying over all these pictures from @zfnewyorkstudio 🎥
VENUE: @thebellevueva, hands down the most STUNNING, most GLAMOROUS venue I’ve ever had! It even had a fully stocked (HUGE) bridal suite upstairs for Aliya to sleep and play in while I was in class. And the owners and staff became like family to us, I’ll never forget it. I’ve posted a full tour on my IG stories highlights!
MIRRORS: @impressionsvanity, gave the finishing touch to my master class setup! Right before my students entered, we turned them all on and our jaws literally DROPPED!!! DECOR: @platinumweddinganddecor completely understood my vision from the very first time we even spoke about it, and blew me away with the chic and elegant stage design and sexy black and gold accented florals! Bold yet classy, it was just soooooo me!
DESSERTS: @motherandsonbakery (a small family owned and operated business!) created 700+ custom makeup-themed cupcakes and statement cakes for all my students to enjoy throughout the day! They were GORGEOUS and delicious, and totally deserve major recognition!
DYF MERCH: @creative_promos, my brother in law! He handles all my orders for DYF gift bag totes, notebooks, pens, and all my DYFL beauty box packaging! Love you Fahim!
DYF STAFF: My amazing family and friends. I’m the luckiest girl to have these amazing women in my life!!! (Several missing but tagged in highlight video post!) Special shout out to my sister in law @ayesharoashan (pictured far right) for handling ALL my goody bag sponsor shipments and counting EVERY SINGLE ITEM to make sure there were no mistakes and keeping everything safe and organized for me! That was quite a crazy task!!!
HOST/MC: My trusted friend and sister, @sidneyle. As soon as I mentioned my Virginia master class, without any hesitation or thought, she said “I’ll be there!!!” She not only helped facilitate the entire day-of operations, she also directed my staff & artists and kept the entire show running smoothly. SHE was the one I chose to call me up on stage, and I wouldn’t have had it any other way. Love you @sidneyle ❤️
