A Look to Love

Recent bride Rebecca Torre, a 27-year-old college administrator from Boston, wasn’t looking for anything froufrou or fancy for her wedding day. Her gown, by Carolina Herrera (the same style that actress Renée Zellweger wore to the 2004 Oscars), was purchased at Filene’s Basement’s infamous "Running of the Brides" event for only $600. As for hair and makeup, "I wasn’t interested in it, but my friend, who also was my makeup artist, said it was a must," says the bride who kept her look natural with pinks and peaches on her lips and cheeks and subtle browns to define her eyes. KC’s Hair Company in Groton, 978-448-1442, parted her long tresses to the side and then swept them into a bun. "We added a spray of cymbidium orchids, provided by my florist, to match my bouquet," she adds.
