    Fall Wedding Hair and Makeup Goals

    Words can’t even describe how lucky I feel to have found Carly! I had a difficult time finding someone when I began planning my wedding, but I’m thankful for that now. After our trial, I knew it was going to be a perfect fit. She listened to what I wanted, understood my vision, and offered her advice when I needed it. Everything happened so organically, and my day wouldn’t have been the same without her. Thank you, Carly!

    Carly is the hmua of your dreams!

    Short Version: hire Carly immediately if you want the most incredibly talented hair and makeup artist who ALSO happens to be the most wonderful human being ever by your side on your wedding day. And have her there as LONG as possible (aka through the ceremony!) - you will need her in every way!!

    Long version: I hired Carly to be my HMUA for our destination wedding weekend (for all 3 events), and she blew me away with her talent, support, and overall energy. Even before the wedding, she was so incredibly responsive, thoughtful and detail-oriented in communicating with me - from the proposal breakdown, to the makeup trial and figuring out my looks for each day. Carly takes deep care in making sure that you truly feel and look like your most beautiful self, and she executed that for not just me, but for all the other ladies in my family (older, younger, different ethnicities, all with different needs and preferences for hair/makeup). I personally wanted a very natural, glowy look but one that would still look glamorous, which seems contradictory, but Carly managed to achieve that perfect balance in a unique way for each event. I swear, she literally did a better job than any inspiration photos I showed her - which already were perfection themselves! To say that Carly is amazing at what she does would be an understatement.

    I also advise 1000% opting for her extended service to stay through the ceremony - you will NOT regret it, and it is worth every penny. You will inevitably cry, sweat, or smudge something during the ceremony, and you will want to look just as fresh when walking into your cocktail hour/reception to greet your guests - especially since this will be the first time that they’re seeing you up close. We had a long family/couple's portrait photo shoot post-ceremony, and it was super helpful to have Carly be there not only for touch-ups, but to help stage my dress (arranging it on the ground, picking it up for the wind to carry), adjust your hair as needed, grab your bouquet, etc. - she basically became a third member of the photography team, and she was beyond helpful for everyone involved.

    On a more personal note, I couldn’t have asked for anyone better to be by my side during the most important weekend of my life. What you don't realize is that your HMUA will likely be the person you spend the most time with! And I'm so grateful that for me, that was Carly. Whether I was relaxing, hungover, getting teary-eyed, or just wanted to sit in silence, Carly was the perfect companion. (She is also super classy in helping you deal with unwanted visitors/annoying situations, if that ever happens!) She's literally like a fairy who will dissolve any negative energy away with her magical herbal elixir, and keep you in a blissful, positive state (as you should be!).

    So in sum, rest be assured that hiring Carly is the best wedding planning decision you will make - do it NOW before she gets booked on your date!!

    To Carly: Thank you a million times again now and forever for transforming me into a goddess I didn't even know I was capable of becoming! You were truly one of the highlights of my wedding weekend, and I am so grateful to know you. XOXO
