Happy Bride

Recently on Sat., Sept. 28th, I worked my biggest wedding to date with a total of 11 people plus the Bride for makeup services! Thank goodness I had my Assistant to help! I did makeup for 7 while my Assistant took care of the other 5.  Needless to say, it was a long day.  And even though the schedule that had already been revised 4 times was thrown out at the last minute when the Bride decided to move some people around, everything actually turned out fabulous! Here’s a pic of the happy Bride & Groom…

ImageWhen I later asked the Bride how her wedding was and if everyone was happy with their makeup, this was her response:

“Everything was amazing!  It was such a great day.  Everyone absolutely loved their makeup and we all got so many compliments on it.  I can’t tell you how many people said my makeup was ‘flawless.’  You were fabulous!  My whole family has already said how excited they are to call you for future events.”

That’s what I want to hear!!! And as if her wonderful email wasn’t enough, she also wrote a fantastic 5-star Yelp review for me (yay!):

“Briana did my makeup for both my engagement photos and my wedding and she was absolutely fantastic!  I cannot say enough wonderful things about her!  Not only is she unbelievably professional (courteous, prompt and extremely organized), but she is also unbelievably talented.  She really listened to what I wanted and made it happen, and she did the same for each of my bridesmaids.  I truly have never had so many people tell me how flawless my makeup looked.  I cannot wait to have Briana do my makeup again for many more events in the future!”

People think I just show up and do makeup, but there’s A LOT more involved with weddings! This Bride booked me nearly a year in advance.  Within that time, I can’t tell you how many emails we sent back and forth about the contract, schedule and details.  So much planning!

However, getting this kind of a response and review make it so worth it!!! I love what I do, but it’s not about me, it’s about my clients and what they want.  Their happiness is the entire purpose of what I do and strive for.  It’s all for them.   But at the same time, it’s definitely nice to be appreciated!
