Caitlin F.

Wedding Date: November 4, 2017 Wedding Location: Parador
Caitlin and I met through her wedding planner Claudia, owner of A Day To Remember.  Claudia and I have worked together many of times so she thought that Caitlin and I would be a good fit for each other. Boy was she right! Caitlin was definitely my most laid back bride this year.  She trusted me with all of her beauty decisions for both herself and her bridal party of 8. She and I spoke in person the day we met back in March and then we talked the day before her wedding with one or 2 email exchanges in between.  She literally had that much confidence in me and my team that we would come in to get the job done...and we did! We have officially given Mrs. Freeman the "Best Mother of the bride" award for making us feel so welcome that day. Anything we needed she had or would make sure to get.  She was the sweetest most kind person inside and out.  #ZallYouNeedIsLove

5 Things You Need To Know Before Hiring A Wedding Beauty Professional

It's "Wedding" season...or is it? As a Makeup Artist and Hairstylist I feel like every season is wedding season.  Couples don't just get married in June anymore, they get married all year. However it does seem like "tragedy" season as it seems as though I'm coming across more and more brides-to-be with horror stories when it comes to their wedding beauty consultations.  I've heard how they've had several consultations and the hairstyle was a total disaster. Or how they've hired their artist and he/she cancelled on them a month before their wedding. This saddens me.  If you truly know what you want then it should be fairly easy to be matched with the perfect glam squad right? Here are 5 things you need to know before you jump the beauty broom!

Loren M.

Wedding Date: July 15, 2017 Wedding Location: Pecan Grove Country Club
Loren and I met through a previous bride I had last year. Ms. Carolyn renewed her vows with her long time husband and loved my team and I so much that she sent Loren our way. Now Loren is not one to wear makeup regularly and pretty much wears her hair either in a ponytail or straight so I had to coach her a bit. I loved how she trusted my decisions and pretty much let me do whatever I wanted. I have to say that she was one of those brides that you just love because she makes you feel like you're a part of her family. She became a client of my at the salon so now we get to see each other outside of "wedding" stuff.

Jalissa V.

Quinceanera Date: July 8, 2017 Quinceanera Location: Sheraton Brookhollow Houston
I absolutely LOVE Jalissa and her mom Karina. From the day we met for Jalissa's photo shoot until days after the party, they treated me like family. Let me tell you, this event was an all day affair! I met with them early that morning to do hair and makeup for her church ceremony then came back to touch them up for her birthday party. This party was nothing I had ever seen before and one of the best moments of this year. The event planner, Claudia, owner of A Day To Remember introduced me to them and I'm super excited she did. Jalissa is such a funny and beautiful young lady and I wish her many more birthdays to come.  Go Stros!

{Styled Shoot} One Enchanted Evening

A few months ago I got a call from an wedding planner to do a "Styled Shoot" for Weddings In Houston Magazine.  A "Styled Shoot" is when vendors come together to do a shoot for a magazine and/or blog to give people inspiration for something they may be putting together.  In this case we were doing a "Finding Neverland" {movie} inspired shoot at the beautiful Omni Hotel in Houston, Tx for a wedding theme.  The day was long and it started to drizzle but everything went off without a hitch!  Here is the magazine feature and some behind the scenes footage from the day.


The digital issue is available online at www.weddingsinhouston.com and in stores now.

Lauryn T.

Wedding Date: June 10, 2017 Wedding Location: Houston, Tx
Lauryn and I met via The Knot and Instagram. She noticed I was having an open house and was going to be in town that weekend so she scheduled a reservation. She's one of my brides that made me laugh a lot. We actually made up a song in her hotel room while I was doing her hair and makeup so we decided to start a record company and go on tour lol. The name of our hot track is going to be "Snatched Edges and a Beat Face" (copyright 2017). Ahhh I love my job.

Melony C.

Wedding Date: May 27, 2017 Wedding Location: Agave Road
Melony was one of my brides who didn't wear much makeup so I did just what she asked during her trial. By the time the wedding day came, she wanted a little more glamour so I talked her in to hints of glitter on her lids just for a bit of sparkle. She happily agreed and loved her look. It was very intriguing to be a part of her cultural wedding and seeing the whole thing come together. *Henna art was not done by me.
