Amazing communication!

Stacey made me feel like I was her only bride. Listened to all my concerns and made sure the day turned out perfectly. My team, Gina and Nadia, were both amazing!!

Great experience!

The absolute best. I needed makeup done for my engagement photoshoot, which took place at 7:30am. The team was willing to open the makeup studio early for me at 5:30am, and the makeup artist Gina was amazing. She gave me exactly what I asked for and revised the makeup based on my feedback. Highly recommend!!

Best hair and makeup team ever!

I am so glad I worked with Stacey and Once Upon a Bride for my hair and makeup for my wedding day! From our first phone call, Stacey took a ton of time to find out exactly what I was looking for, made recommendations, and communicated with me throughout the process to ensure our looks were exactly what I had in mind. Nadia and Gina were our hair and makeup artist, and doing the trial at Stacey's beautiful 26th Street studio was one of my favorite parts of wedding prep! I had a great time as we tried a ton of different looks, and laughed the whole time as well! Stacey even gave me a snack from her bag when I mentioned I was looking forward to eating after. :) After the trial Stacey called me personally to make sure I loved each look, and to see if I wanted any adjustments. I teared up during my trial, and realized it would be best to skip eyeliner on my under eye for the wedding day – I am so glad Stacey called me while that was still fresh in my mind. Stacey also came up with a fantastic schedule – on the day of, my bridal party and I felt there was plenty of time and everything ran smoothly. My girls and I LOVED our hair and makeup looks. Nadia and Gina did such beautiful work, and were super fun to hang out with during the process as well - it flew by. I would 100% recommend working with Once Upon a Bride - you will love how you look!
