About D+A Bridal

D+A Bridal is a team of best friends, Desiree + April, beautifying brides and bridal parties on wedding days across the San Francisco Bay Area, and beyond.

We are an on-location beauty team providing airbrush makeup and hairstyling using curated prestige products, focusing on getting you and your loved ones camera-ready, and feeling like your most beautiful selves, whether it's a soft natural look or full glam.

Our weekend packages are perfect for brides with bridal parties, or family and friends who also need beauty services the day of the wedding. All beauty packages include a pre-wedding trial, so there are no surprises on your wedding day and you can relax. We love creating a hair and makeup look that is unique to you, and compliments the style of your wedding dress and wedding theme.

We take our timing seriously, and will work with you or your planner to ensure that everyone is ready on time for photos, including a schedule for hair and makeup, so everyone in your party is on the same page and the day runs super smooth.

We create a fun, easy-going atmosphere for the day of your wedding. We believe our positive and light-hearted spirit will be just what you need to get ready for that first look or walk down the aisle.

We truly love what we do and we can't wait to work with you!

XO,

Desiree + April

    Best decision ever for the most gorgeous hair & makeup

    Desiree and April are a top-notch, wonderful hair and makeup team and a pleasure to be surrounded by on my wedding day. I absolutely LOVED my hair and makeup on my wedding day. I look at our wedding photos and cannot get over how great my hair looks in each one, and how perfect the makeup looked. I felt like myself, but with the right makeup to stand out in the photos as well, two things that were very important to me. Desiree and April have a calm and fun presence, which meant the world to me after a lot of stressful wedding planning. They were so flexible and understanding and accommodating. True professionals. You will be making an excellent choice by booking with them. They were a highlight of my wedding experience.

    Amazing Hair and Makeup artists!

    These ladies know what they're doing! I can't say enough good things about how D+A Bridal showed up for me through the stress of pandemic/wildfire wedding planning. From doing my hair/makeup for my engagement photos, to making everyone look beautiful on my big day, Desiree and April provided excellent service, were extremely flexible and did excellent work! I felt stunning on my big day and couldn't be happier with the photos and memories that were made. We had many venue changes because of Covid, and through the whole thing, many back and forth emails, April and Desiree remained flexible, open and supportive. They outlined a schedule for completing the bridesmaids, mother of the bride and groom, bride and flower girls and everyone was at the alter on time and looking beautiful. Thanks to their organization, we all knew what to expect, where to be and the day flowed easily. I was able to show them "inspiration" photos and they got everything just right. Everyone in the wedding party loved the results and the photos show it! Thank you D+A Bridal!!!

Co-Owner and Makeup Artist

I'm Desiree, or Dez for short! I'm a lover of all things beauty, and I especially love using makeup as a tool to complete a whole look.

I've been doing makeup professionally for almost a decade. I started out doing makeup for Benefit Cosmetics (so yes, I take eyebrows very seriously!), Nars Cosmetics, and Charlotte Tilbury. Since I've been freelancing, I have done celebrity and editorial makeup, but nothing quite compares to my love of bridal makeup. There is something so special to me to be making my clients feel their most beautiful on such an important day in their lives.

I truly love what I do! I can't wait to work with you.

Co-Owner and Hairstylist

Hi, I'm April!

With 12+ years of hairstyling experience, I am here to make your wedding dream hair become a reality. During the week, you can find me at Fig & Clover doing cut and color (and guess what? I offer a discount for our brides!). My favorite part of doing hair is definitely the styling aspect of it- whether it's creating the perfect beach wave, or polished updo. I love to get creative, and take pride in creating a unique look that is perfect for my brides' personality, and to compliment their wedding dress.

I love to laugh and have a great time, so it's no wonder that I love working weddings, and feel so honored to be chosen to be glamming up my clients on such a big day.
