Happy girls are the prettiest girls


Best of The Knot

Yesterday, after leaving the surgery center post-oocyte retrieval {that's the fancy wording for it}, I started reading my built up text and e-mail messages on my phone. I opened an e-mail from my contact at The Knot wedding planning site where I advertise both online and in the regional magazine. Imagine my surprise when the e-mail tells me my wedding business has won The Knot Best of Weddings 2012 for my area! I was voted #1 in my market, so a giant thank you goes out to all of my brides and whomever voted me to this spot! The Knot will officially announce their Best Of picks for 2012 on January 23, 2012, so if you are planning a wedding, check it out! Oh, and I get a plaque! How awesome is that?!

You all probably know I do hair and makeup for a living, but maybe you didn't know I specialize in weddings. I have worked very hard over the last two years to build my wedding business, and it has totally paid off. 2011 has been my busiest wedding season to date, with 28 weddings booked between April and December. Each wedding required a huge amount of e-mails back and forth with the bride, and a trial, so know that another 28 appointments have been on my books to accommodate my brides before they even get married. Each wedding averages about 3 people needing hair and makeup {or one of the services}, and after most weddings I had salon clients to take care of too. It's been a busy 7 months. 

Here's to another amazing year of weddings in 2012! If you are getting married and are looking for a hair and makeup artist, let me know! I travel  ;)


  1. Congratulations! That's so awesome :)

  2. Congratulations! This doesn't surprise me one bit! You are amazingly talented and I wish you could do my hair and make up everyday or at least for the special occasions!!!

  3. I am late on this, but congratulations!! You work very hard and you absolutely deserve the reward!

    Oh, I gave you an award too :)

  4. wow you are super woman! 28 weddings in less than a year.. you rock!


You just made my day!
