I was extremely happy with the level of artistry provided by Bailey and Esmeralda on my wedding day. Everyone's hair and makeup came out perfect. Bailey did an outstanding job on everyone's makeup, including making some adjustments from my trial. Esmeralda did a fantastic job as well, however, my Mother's hair came out exceptional! She spent extra time to make sure it was perfect and it was. My hair may have been simple but she nailed it and stayed the entire night.
I can't thank these ladies enough for making everyone look and feel fantastic on my wedding day!

Corey did my make-up for my wedding and I cannot recommend her enough. I initially was hesitant to have anyone do my make-up because I really wanted a natural look. Corey explained to me the contouring necessary for wonderful photographs and made me realize that you can have "wedding make-up" while still looking like yourself. She even got me wearing fake eyelashes - now that's talent. I felt so comfortable and confident in her hands. I knew that whatever she recommended was what I needed.
I also appreciated how flexible she was. There were a few things about my consultation that I wasn't sure about but Corey completely was open to my concerns and totally accommodating. Her number 1 priority was making sure I was happy. I certainly was.
I have nothing but completely and total enthusiasm behind my recommendation of using Corey for your wedding. She was a complete professional and perfectionist. During my wedding, the last thing I wanted to worry about was my make-up. With Corey in charge, my make-up stayed on (and in-place) all night long as I danced the night away with my friends, family and new husband!! Thank you, Corey!!

As the mother of the bride, I have a special view point when it comes to evaluating the different people who helped to make my daughter Erin's wedding a memorable event. Corey is a make up artist with national recognition. We discovered this when we were at Neiman Marcus in San Francisco and one of the vendors said Corey represented several cosmetic companies and trained the cosmeticians behind the department store counters! The day of the wedding, Corey was more than amazing. First of all she transformed Erin into a vision of loveliness. She listened carefully to Erin's ideas, added her suggestions, and the result was perfection. She also applied make up to my other daughters (bridesmaids) and myself. We were all extremely pleased with the results.
An unexpected bonus was how Corey managed our pre-ceremony jitters. Like Amy S., the wedding day was rainy. The photographer wanted to hurry outside and take pictures. Emotion was running high. Corey, with a voice of experience, placated our nerves and settled us down. She was invaluable.
As the wedding party walked down the stairs and into the room full of wedding guests, all of us felt confident and beautiful. Thank you Corey!

The Decorated Bride's artists are a unique talent! The makeup artist was assigned to provide makeup artistry for my nephew's bride, as well as the entire bridal party - including both sets of mothers and grandmothers! It was amazing to watch her apply her skill to the varied ages, and even more amazing to see the results. The young looked natural and the older ladies looked radiant! Neither looked "made-up" or over-done. The artist did a truly wonderful job with a bridesmaid - whose Rosacia had surfaced the day of the wedding. She was able to cover the rash areas and still keep the make-up looking natural and somehow translucent.
True professionals and I would recommend them highly.

I'm from the bay area and my wedding coordinator was able to find The Decorated Bride for me to do my makeup and hair at Squaw Valley. I never had a chance to meet my artist prior to my wedding so I was a little nervous. But when I finally did meet them on my wedding day, I felt very at ease and trusted them. The Decorated Bride's artists did a wonderful job on my mother, my bridesmaids, and me. I wanted to have a natural look and still look amazing for photos, and she managed to accomplish it all. My bridesmaids and mother were also very happy with the work that she had done for them. It was a wonderful and memorable experience that she added to my wedding day. I would highly recommend them!
I truly felt beautiful on my wedding day.

I wanted to share some of the photos from our wedding and also tell you thank you so much for doing such an AMAZING job! Seriously I absolutely LOVED the way my hair and makeup turned out, got so many great compliments, and I loved working with you. I actually was in a wedding right after I got back from my honeymoon and it was one woman doing all the hair and makeup, but she didn't have a schedule or anything, and I was thinking how great it was that you were so good about the timing so that everything ran perfectly!

I wanted to thank the artists of The Decorated Bride for the awesome work done with my wedding makeup. I received many compliments throughout the night, and it even stayed in place while I cried through the ceremony! Thank you and I hope to work with you again.

The Decorated Bride did a fabulous job for our Incline wedding! I can't thank Corey enough for making me and my ladies look gorgeous. I still can't get over how gorgeous my Mother looked! We were complimented all night long. Not only were you professional, but you had a way of lightening the mood and calming nerves. Any bride that wants to look like herself... only better, should book The Decorated Bride!
