A personal message for all my soon to be brides:
My husband and I have been happily married for 7 years, and just had our son Declan. I remember where you are right now. It feels like it was yesterday I was anxious over all the decisions that needed to be made. I remember the struggle to find a make up artist who would work with the look I wanted and travel to my venue.
I have been a make up artist, hair stylist, wedding coordinator, bridesmaid and maid of honor. I know how difficult it can be to prepare for such a momentous day. I’ll be there with you. I’ll work on your wedding day timelines, laugh and cry with you. Most of all, I will respect you. I’ll take to heart the words that you say to help make this process as easy as I can. I will be available, arrive early and I won't leave you until you have the accessories to keep your bridal look lasting all day.
I work with my brides on a very meaningful personal level and work towards adorning them to get that “Just Right, Eye Popping, Jaw Dropping Vision” that they desire. I am the vehicle to help you arrive at one of the most happiest moments in life. My team and I work with you to help prepare you not just for your wedding day but your first day of marriage. I want you to get there, let’s go there together.
I look forward to working with you!
