I believe in beauty, and I believe in the power it holds. Helping you see that beauty you have is my why. As your morning with me unfolds, I hope to provide you with a feeling of peace that you carry in your heart as a reminder of the beauty that not only lies in your appearance but in the love that surrounds you and your fiance. In the space of tranquility I create for you, the morning of your wedding becomes more than a series of hair & makeup preparations. It becomes a space with room for cherished memories, like your mom tearing up when she sees your bridal makeup or listening to your friends laughter as I put the finishing touches on your hair during the bustling excitement of the day.
Allow yourself to luxuriate in the meticulous touch of trusted hands and feel the transformative power of beauty rituals. My hope as the final touches are delicately placed, that you catch a small glimpse of yourself in the mirror, and a smile blooms across your face. A smile that reflects that in this moment you not only see yourself as a vision of true bridal beauty but as a reflection of the love and peace that surrounds you on your wedding day.
My story starts when I was young – really young. I would studiously watch my grandmother perform her beauty rituals. She would carefully draw her brows, match her lipstick to her sweater, and in the evenings meticulously wash her face and apply her skincare. One day she asked me to join her and the rest is history, I fell in love with the beauty world.
I spent my formative years doing all my friends hair and makeup for proms, dance recitals, dates etc. One evening during my junior year of high school my mom came home and announced that she enrolled me in beauty school! I was able to graduate in 2011 and worked in salons all through college, still doing hair and makeup for friends.
In 2018 after I got married I decided to hone my talents and skill set and opened my own bridal beauty business Carly Marie Artistry. Carly Marie Artistry is founded on principles of letting your natural beauty shine, feeling your most comfortable and looking effortlessly bridal. I’ve had the honor of providing a relaxing and intimate wedding morning for over 300 brides. The joy from being able to bring your dream bridal beauty vision to life is second to none. I am so excited to be with you on this journey and I can’t wait to see the magic we create!
