From the bride,
Erich and I met on a skiing trip in Tahoe six years ago, so when we got engaged we knew Tahoe was the perfect location to bring together all our friends and family for our special day. We immediately fell in love with The Lodge at Tahoe Donner for the venue, with the ceremony set outdoors surrounded by pine trees, and the reception under a white tent with sparkling white lights. Once all the vows, speeches and food were done we started up the music and dancing and did not stop till Journey's "Don't Stop Believing" came on as the final dance. What added to the enjoyment of the day for me was the beautiful hair and makeup job that was done, I danced for hours and still had perfect hair and makeup. I received many compliments from guest, and after seeing the wedding photos I can say that my makeup held up through the hugs, tears, and dancing which is what every bride wants.
From the Bride:
Choosing and trusting someone to make you look and feel your absolute best on one of the most important and best days of your life... scary! This was the hardest part in my planning process because I always do my own makeup and I'm not from the area. I researched several places online but decided to set up a trial with Love is in the Hair because of how elegant and professional they portrayed themselves, their experience, and prices. Michelle was great! I sent some pictures of ideas that I liked and she was able to see my vision! There were a few things I wanted different (bolder) and I didn't feel uncomfortable at all letting her know. She brought all of her supplies right to my suite on the morning of my wedding (professional and on time) and did both hair and makeup for my maid of honor and I. My maid of honor loved everything and couldn't believe how calm I was all morning. I owe that to Michelle, because to me hair and makeup is a big deal every day,so my expectations for that day were huge..Thank you, Michelle, for meeting all of them and more! I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Love is in the Hair to any of my friends!
I dreamt of a wedding day that would be intimate and authentic, and that's exactly what it was. Twenty five of our closest family and friends sat above the beautiful Lake Tahoe on the pier of West Shore Café and Inn while we shared our vows. Our wedding party, just a maid of honor and best man, small guest list, and the natural beauty of Tahoe and surrounding mountains helped to maintain the focus on what a wedding should truly be all about.. the love shared between the bride and groom. We were truly able to focus on each other, thoroughly enjoy our first dinner as husband and wife, and spend quality time with each and every person present.
One of my favorite details is the significance behind our wedding date, May 10th, 2015. At almost the same time Matt proposed, I found out my mother had been diagnosed with terminal cancer. We chose the date because it sounded neat, 5/10/15, and it wasn't until my mom had passed away, shortly after, that we realized our wedding date was Mother's Day.... insert goosebumps here.

As a bride you always have a vision of yourself in your head, the problem is communicating that vision to someone who cannot actually see it. Michelle was able to patiently listen to my description, take in the details and create magic to make me the beautiful bride I always imagined! She is not only extremely talented but her positive energy and calm, experienced demeanor will put any bride at ease! I couldn't have been happier with Michelle's work and I wouldn't have wanted any other person by my side on my big day! I can't thank Michelle and Love Is In the Hair enough for making me a beautiful bride and making the experience stress-free and unforgettable!

From the Bride,
"As a bride, there is no one you work with closer than the women who make you look like you've dreamed of looking on your wedding day since you were a little girl. Not only did the "Love is in the Hair" team make me and my entire bridal party look exactly as we wanted, but the way we felt from their magic is what I will truly hold onto forever. On my wedding day I was nervous, scared, excited, and cried the whole time. Stefani was able to put me at ease, make me laugh, calm my nerves, and not to mention laid on every eyelash with perfection. Working so closely with this team was a breeze throughout wedding planning, and on the day of, because of their incredibly quick and effective communication, honesty, and skills. I wish I could relive my wedding day over and over again, and every time I picture that - the "Love in the Hair" team is always right by my side!"

"Stefani was such an incredible artist to work with! From the second we met she was extremely warm and professional. She diligently listened to all of my needs and gave great advice about what important things I would need to have for my big day! During our trial she made me feel so comfortable and perfectly executed the vision I had for all things hair and make up for my wedding day. She absolutely made me feel like a queen the day of my wedding and I cannot say enough about how wonderful, punctual, professional, talented and funny she is! I would trust her with ANY major event and highly recommend her services to anyone looking for flawless make up and hair"
