I met Cherie and her mom back in November 2012 where she came to meet me for a consultation. Cherie had a vision for her hair and makeup for herself and her entire bridal party, and I am happy that she chose me and my team to beautify her, her bridesmaids and moms on her special day!
Cherie and Matt met at Cal Poly SLO but didn’t start dating until they moved to San Francisco. They shared their first kiss at a Halloween party 5 years ago! Matt can always make her laugh and is the most loyal person she knows- he really loves his family and friends and this means so much to Cherie. In Cherie’s sister’s speech she said that they were a great match since- she loves to cook & Matt loves to eat, Matt loves to tell jokes & Cherie loves to laugh, they both love to socialize but also nest at home, and they both love their families and friends to bits!
Cherie made such a classy bride, her elegance and poise really shows through her pictures and I love creating her hair and makeup look. For Cherie’s hair, I created a soft, intricate side bun filled with twists and even some tiny braids. For Cherie’s makeup, I used airbrush makeup, to give her that flawless finish and a liquid highlighter to give her a natural glow. For her eyes, I did a soft smokey eye using different shades of purple and mocha hues.
I am so blessed to also work with an incredible team of artists and stylists who did all the makeup and hair for Cherie’s bridal party and moms.
Cherie, thank you so much for leaving me a truly wonderful review on yelp! It means the world to me when I read your words. You were such a gem to work with and made a stunning bride!
Nicoletta is one of the most genuine people that you will find in the wedding business. I spent a lot of time looking for hair and makeup artists in the LA area and after meeting Nicoletta she put both my mom and my minds at ease about looking our best on my wedding day. Nicoletta does a fantastic job and really spends the time to get your hair and makeup looking perfect- including spending extra time during my trial and taking detailed notes to ensure that the wedding day moves smoothly. She has a wonderful selection my hair accessories that are reasonably priced an you can decide at you trial after you see your actual hair style which is really great.
For my wedding I needed to have the wedding party 6 bridesmaids and 2 mothers completely ready with hair and makeup by 10:30am. Nicoletta and her team were extremely detailed yet quick and stayed perfectly on time which is huge on the big day! Each bridesmaid looked gorgeous yet unique with their hair and eye makeup. Most importantly- Nicoletta is a defender of the bride whether you want to be part of the getting ready madness or you need some quiet time to ease your pre-wedding nerves Nicoletta will make sure that you are super comfortable during the entire experience.
My makeup and hair lasted the entire day and night- even while dancing on a stage with our wedding band my hair did not budge! I actually slept with my pins in an took them out the next morning for perfect day after curls lol. It was in the 90’s during our photos before the wedding and my face makeup still looked perfect- a few blots with a powder puff provided by Nicoletta and I was ceremony ready!I could not say more great things about Nicoletta and her team- her fun and energetic professionalism definitely made my wedding day that much better. Do yourself a favor and hire her for your big day!!
I had a real tough time choosing which pictures to post as they are all so beautiful! Cherie and Matt I wish you a lifetime of joy and happiness. Keep cooking and eating and falling more and more in love with every bite 😉
With love and blessings,
