Philosophy

A note from Melissa.

With countless choices for your wedding day, we are honored you have considered us! As we embark on our 6th year working with amazing clients, I can confidently say that we have built a passionate, talented team that has invested much time and energy in mastering our craft. At Georgetown Bride, our first goal is to get to know each bride on a personal level. We are committed to knowing you, your style, and flawlessly delivering our little piece of your big day. Long before that day, we like to sit down with our bride to understand the vision. Then we take that vision - the image of how you've always pictured yourself walking down the aisle, and we bring it to life. Our style is best described as clean, natural, and polished. We believe that a bride should look and feel like the most beautiful, camera ready version of herself. Heavy, cakey foundation? Never. A smokey eye gone wrong? Never. Prom Hair? Never. We pride ourselves on staying current with trends, and keeping the classics close to our hearts. We love what we do. Georgetown Bride is not just a service, it's an experience.

behind the scenes

Yes, we are bonafide makeup junkies. With years of combined experience, we have a long list of favorites that come from our past clients, professionals, our addiction to beauty blogs, interest in new products, and our sheer obsession with makeup. We use YSL, Tom Ford, MAC, Nars, Bobbi Brown, Laura Mercier, Makeup For Ever, Marc Jacobs Beauty, Charlotte Tilbury, Kevyn Aucoin, Urban Decay, Smashbox, and a hand full others . If you love a product that you use, we understand, and are open to using that too.

To us makeup is not just an art. It's science, it's psychology, and it's an expression! We know how to match all skin undertones, and analyze all skin types to achieve a flawless face. Yes, we can correct acne, rosacea, and age spots, to make pictures look flawless. But we're not just clinical pros whose goal is to polish a bride into a perfect photograph. Our goal is to loosen a woman from the grips of bridal stress, and bring forth her true vision of her wedding day, her most beautiful, most refined, and most authentic self. That is our true specialty.

The beauty of 2016 is that we have taken the reigns of our own style and broken the old school wedding mold. We love a long, beautiful beach wave just as much as a loose romantic updo. Our wedding hair philosophy closely follows our makeup style. Whether you're going for old hollywood, clean and classic, or boho chic, your hair should be soft, touchable, and last all day or night. Let your locks loose, or decide to pull them off of your face and dance the night away. Either way you can rest knowing that we will handle the architecture of whatever style you choose, without disrupting the integrity of the look you want.
