The Wedding Industry
The wedding industry was admittedly not in my original business model. I believed theatrics and special FX were the route I wanted to take with my Show Girl and performance background. While trying to break into the Hollywood business, I worked for a bridal company on the weekends where I realized my true passion to make every person who sat in my chair feel beautiful.
The Wedding Memories
My favorite wedding memory was actually a very recent one. I had gone to a brides home early in the morning with my team and right away we started with our services. The bridal party was playing a “Girls Night Out” Spotify playlist and an old Spice Girls song started to play. I lifted my head up for a quick second to smile at the song recognition- and in that split second I saw the entire bridal party and my team of artists dancing, laughing and having such an amazing moment together as if we were all part of their group for years. In that specific moment I realized that little memories just like THIS are what keeps us together and doing weddings over and over again.
Beauty & Beyond Beautique is notoriously known for beauty transformations that make you feel glamorous while still looking like your natural, beautiful self. Our glam ups always include airbrushing and lashes for every client wanting services, without charging additional fees, because we want every client to receive the best treatment without the hefty price tag.
Beauty & Beyond Beautique began as a small freelancing business a few years ago out of my car and a small makeup kit. Between word of mouth and a number of previous bridesmaids now getting married, our company name has grown dramatically and earned the trust of all our clients with our long lasting makeups and touch up services (Bridal Insurance).
