Brides By Melanie B.
I specialize in designing natural, yet glamourous looks for my brides. My clientele select my services because they notice that my brides are radiant and beautiful, yet they do not appear to be heavily painted. I have mastered the art of being able to enhance my brides features in a way that is flattering, appropriate for professional flash photography, yet does not look heavily applied. If you are that bride who absolutely loves makeup and craves full on glam, however, I have got you covered!
Having trouble deciding on "the dress?" I also offer concierge services, where I can assist you in shopping for your perfect wedding gown! While shopping for your wedding gown can be exciting, it can also be a source of stress and anxiety for brides. This is particularly the case when a bride is unsure of which styles are most flattering to her figure and body type. In addition, having family members, friends or even salespersons who may make you feel rushed or pressured, can result in you choosing a gown that you are not 100% thrilled about. Your wedding day is the single most photographed event in your life, so you want to nail it! Allow me to make the event fun and stress free for you!

Melanie is everything I imagine and more???? When I first spoke to Melanie on the phone I knew just from the questions and her vibe that she was the one. Searching for a makeup artist is like looking for your wedding dress, your dress and your makeup needs to be fabulous! Especially on your wedding day. Melanie did just that! She made my makeup fabulous! Melanie is very professional, organized, prompt and prepared for everything. Melanie is overall amazing! Melanie was more than just my makeup artist the day of my wedding. Melanie went above beyond the day of my wedding. She has wonderful personality. I highly recommend Melanie.
I was asked if I had a make up artist and my reply was No. I was referred to Melanie in hopes that she would be apart of our journey. During our initial call, I had Melanie on the phone for a little over an hour telling her my life story and what my vision was for my special day. Simplicity! That was what I wanted to focus on. I wanted a natural look that had a pop of color. Melanie was not only patient with me, but she really pulled through my vision. So much so that my now husband LOVED my look during our engagement photos. (If anyone knows him, they know that he is more of a natural beauty type of guy) Melanie's professionalism and attention to detail made my experience working with her all worth while. She truely makes you feel like a nubian QUEEN! You literally get out of her chair feeling like you don't have anything on your face, but once you look in the mirror - pure perfection. Melanie does not just add color to a blank canvas, but more so reactivates the melanin beauty. Thank you soooo much for being apart of this journey and helping us to become The Jacksons!
Melanie the Gem!
Melanie, oh Melanie!
I first spoke to Melanie on the phone in November of 2018. I found her on social media and admired her work. She just showed the beauty of her brides naturally; that was exactly what I was looking for especially for my wedding day. Speaking to her on the phone her voice was so soothing and re- assuring. The conversation we had assured me that she was not just going looking to get paid. It was a hard time financially planning my wedding; but God provides. Fast forward to April 2019 about a month before my nuptials I reached back out to her and she was available. I booked her right then and there. She walked me through the process. She was very informative. When I had my last minute engagement shoot she came to my parents home to do my trial. My father was amazed with the makeup, seeing that he prefers a bare face. I knew my wedding day would be wonderful due to Melanie’s aura, promptness, and energy. The days leading up to the day Melanie initiated contact with my other vendors to ensure my day was smooth and stress free. Melanie is so vested in her bride’s experience that when I informed her I did not have a garter she purchased one for me. The day of the wedding my bridal party had no complaints they respected her professionalism and so did I. Melanie is truly an amazing artist and goes beyond her role, when I had an issue the day of my wedding she sat in my limo with me to keep me at peace! She did not have to do it but she did and I am thankful for that.
Icing on the cake is when she came back to the venue at 10:00pm to deliver my lipstick and lipliner! I tell you, you get more than what you pay for with Melanie. She is now my makeup artist forfuture events. May God continue to bless and keep you.
