Xpress Spray Tan $50 gift Certicate Give-Away!

Owner of Xpress Spray Tan-Crystal Lathrop

Crystal started Xpress spray tan about a year ago in hopes of inspiring people to be health conscience while still obtaining a gorgeous tan. Xpress Spray tan has allowed women to feel confident and beautiful without the fears of skin cancer or health issues that can occur by too much sun, or tanning beds. Another perk...a little spray tanning magically takes off pounds!:)

Spray tanning is the newest phase in the application of self-tanning products. The bronzers made today are very natural looking and are completely harmless. These solutions include DHA (dihydroxyacetone), which works by reacting with the keratin protein in the top (or dead) layer of your skin. The solution is applied with the use of a low-pressure airbrush gun by a technician, which allows for an even coverage compared to a booth application. The fine mist from the airbrush ensures a perfectly even application to the skins surface and as there is no rubbing or overspray from an automated booth setting, it avoids streaking, orange palms and dirty looking knees and elbows. Is Spray Tanning Safe?
Yes! We use only best, highest quality tools and productsw found in the industry. All of the ingredients in the solutions have been through extensive testing and are FDA approved. The ingredients inour solutions will give you a tan without the risk of wrinkles, skin damage or skin cancer. 

Xpress offers different packages with prices that are affordable. Make it a special event and invite your friends in for a spray tanning party or book it for your wedding party. The host is free and each guest is only $15! Make it fun and BYOB and snacks. So book your spray party with Xpress soon! 
Some of Xpress Spray Tan Clients tanned and feeling great!

Xpress is giving away a $50 gift certificate! The winner will be announced on Friday! Perfect timing with winter around the corner and the need for some color during some drury months.

Rick and Cathy Hawley

The day and weather could not have been more amazing than it was for bride and groom, Cathy and Rick. Surrounded by lots of dear family and friends, they were married at the History in The Making House located on Fairview in Wichita, KS. The bride rode in on horse and carriage and was escorted to her groom, by her son. The ceremony took place in the beautifully, lighted gazebo with the brides brother as their officiant. After the ceremony concluded the guests made a B-line for the yummy chocolate fountain provided by Chocolate Cascades and were entertained by DJ Scott Ward with Accent Mobile Music. The guests also had a great time taking pictures in the photobooth and making a scrapbook for the new couple!
If you have the privilege of knowing Cathy and Rick, you know you are in, for not only a great time, but for open arms as well. They love their family and friends and do so much for them and they truly appreciated all of the friends and family who were able to join them in their celebration!

Matt and Liz Hadsall

Elizabeth and Matt Hadsall
The weather could not have been more perfect for Matt and Liz's outdoor wedding at Botanica. Matt and Liz were not only a great couple to work with, but each of their families were so welcoming and just as appreciative and thoughtful. The Hadsall's wedding not only reflected the personalities of the bride and groom, but also their hearts for each other, family and most importantly God. At each wedding or event, I learn something new about my job, people or simply just how important the gift of marriage is. During Matt and Liz's ceremony, instead of lighting a unity candle or pouring sand, they tied a God's Knot. It was a very special time for the bride and groom. The reception was equally encouraging and inspiring as the bride's sister, and the groom's two best men shared; not only embarrassing stories, but also sentimental advice. After the toasts, the bride's father got up to share one of the most amazing speeches I have ever heard. His love for his wife, and the gratitude he expressed towards her and the way she raised their daughters kept the guests laughing and crying.

The shabby chic wedding ceremony took place in the meadow at Botanica and the reception on the terrace. The wedding colors were, mustard yellow with accents of brown and burnt orange. Mason jars, wood chargers, twigs, bird seed, and lanterns adorned the terrace area at Botanica. The guests danced under lighted trees to music played by DJ, Larry Perlman with At Your Request. 
It was truly a blessing to be a part of such a beautiful couple inside and out. This is why I LOVE my job and feel so incredibly lucky to be able to help create lasting memories for each bride and groom I work with!!!
