As CEO and founder of You Evolve Hair, Patty Pepper is always changing up her look and is all about living a confident, positive life.
Patty wore SmileDirectClub invisible aligners before she walked down the aisle during her dream wedding to her husband, D’Juan, last June.
“I love smiling, so finding a way to keep my smile straight and bright for my wedding day was such a great feeling!” she says. “The best part was it was easy and convenient!”
Patty shared her pre-wedding routine exclusively with SmileDirectClub. Read on for a glimpse of her big day – and how she got a smile that will shine brightly for years to come.
Shortly after getting engaged, Patty began her journey with SmileDirectClub by doing an at-home impression kit. She was able to straighten and whiten her teeth from the comfort of her own home before the big day. She also boosted her beauty routine about 6 months before the wedding with regular massages and facials.
Patty used at-home mint julep masks and body wraps to help her look and feel her best. By wearing custom wigs from her company, You Evolve Hair, she was able to change her style without damaging her hair.
“I experimented a lot with different hairstyles and protective styling,” she said. “I love big hair with lots of volume. It’s so much fun to be versatile!”
Her bridesmaids and mom helped her to capture the final hair and makeup look for her wedding day. If you plan to have your hair and makeup professionally done for your wedding, be sure to schedule a trial a month or two out so you can confirm your look in advance. During the year before you get married, prioritize consistent haircuts (and color, if necessary) to make sure your hair is healthy. And keep any heat styling to a minimum.
The engagement period is also the ideal time to whiten your teeth – put that bright on™ premium whitening gel and LED light to work.
The weekend of her wedding, Patty invested in a gel manicure and pedicure. She chose a Cinderella-themed color with silver and glitter – perfect for her Disney wedding.
On her wedding day, Patty was well equipped with an emergency beauty kit that included mini deodorant to keep any unwanted sweat under control and a small pack of tissues to touch up makeup after any happy tears. Other day-of essentials: breath mints, lip color, blotting papers, and a stain-removing pen.
Celebrity makeup artist Jo Michelle Artistry perfected Patty’s look with MAC SPF Full Coverage Foundation and Prep + Prime Face Protection Lotion. D’Juan chose Chanel No. 5 perfume for Patty to wear – a classic, elegant fragrance to complement her princess dress and tiara.
On June 27, 2017, Patty and D’Juan tied the knot in their very own fairy-tale wedding at Walt Disney World. Their love was on full display in the most magical celebration. Patty’s smile was as radiant as she had always dreamed of, but it was her confidence, happiness, and passion that made that day so very special.
“Now that my smile plan is complete, I can say my smile is brighter and straighter!” Patty says. “I loved the SmileDirectClub journey and can only speak positives about my experience. I’d recommend everyone try it!”
