Words cannot describe how beautiful I felt on the day of my wedding. Brenda went above and beyond with everything. My hair and makeup were out of this world beautiful in every way. I felt like a model out of vogue, literally. She was professional, honest, super nice and knows... Read More her stuff. She gave me recommendations on hair extensions (only because I got a little too much cut off prior to the wedding and wanted a little more length) and was honest with me every step of the way. I typically don't wear too much makeup (very little) and she was upfront with me with the pictures I had shown her. She wanted me to feel like myself on my wedding day with a touch of glam. My hair and makeup was magical-Romantic makeup and classy bun-perfect in so many ways. I wish I could have her as a personal stylist daily. I will definitely use her again in the future. You will not be disappointed if you choose her!!

Brenda is THE ABSOLUTE BEST!! First and foremost, she is actually RESPONSIVE!! When I sent her an email, I would hear back by the next business day. When I was looking for a hair/makeup person I found this to be a shockingly rare quality! Not only was she responsive, but she... Read More was SO patient. I had what felt like a million questions and changed my mind constantly. She was nothing but a complete sweetheart. She answered every single question in detail and made numerous suggestions that I found to be so helpful. She was happy to do two trials after I completely changed the look I was going for. She made me feel so comfortable! I absolutely LOVED my look for the day of my wedding and all of my bridesmaids and the mothers felt the same. Brenda listens to what you're going for and is a true perfectionist! Everyone looked gorgeous. I can't recommend her enough!! It will be the best decision you make for your wedding day :)

I was looking for someone to do my make-up for my wedding in Traverse City. When I found Brenda and spoke with her on the phone, I knew I had to get her! She was so sweet, and although she already had a wedding party earlier in the day of my wedding, she fit me in :) Brenda... Read More has such an awesome personality. We laughed so much that it got to the point that I was desperately trying to not laugh so she could do my make-up :). I felt like my good friend was doing my make-up. Brenda listened to everything I was looking for and made it happen. The make-up was flawless and did not feel thick and cakey. I loved my make-up!! Thank you Brenda for being so sweet and doing such an amazing job with my make-up! xoxo

Brenda did a phenomenal job with my wedding make-up. She really saved the day after my original make-up person double-booked on my wedding day leaving me with no choice but to find another person to do my wedding make-up. Brenda was a little expensive for what I wanted to pay... Read More but her airbrush was worth every penny! She listened to what you wanted in terms of coverage and eye make-up. I absolutely loved the airbrush and several guests complimented me on the make-up. The airbrush even lasted until the next day. People mentioned how crazy it was that my face looked just as good the next day (even the fake eyelashes stayed on the day after the wedding)! I wish I knew how to apply make-up like she does! I really wish I would've booked her for my wedding up-do as well because she is great at that as well. Thanks Brenda for making feel like such a beautiful bride!

I don't really wear makeup much so was not totally sure what to expect.

While the services... Read More were more expensive than I initially wanted to spend, I felt as though it was absolutely and totally worth it.

I can't say enough great things about On Site Bridal. They were So fun to work with! Extremely friendly, efficient and professional. When I first reached out to Brenda it was 1 month until my wedding date and I had just found out that the other person i booked double booked me... Read More so she cancelled :( I was so stressed trying to find someone at the last hour for myself and my bridal party and thats how i found On Site Bridal. On top of all that I was coming to Michigan from out of state for the wedding and by the time we booked there we no more trips planned to get to traverse city except coming for the actual wedding weekend....I was stressed to say the least. Brenda put me at ease with scheduling a trial makeup session the day i arrived. We discussed my look and talked everything through. She was able to execute exactly what i wanted and everyones makeup turned out amazing! she was even able to squeeze in makeup for my sister in law who had previously said she didn't want to have it done..when she changed her mind they were able to accommodate just fine :) I did not use On Site Bridal for Hair as i had already booked someone else for the big day but had i not done so i would have totally used them for hair too. I would reccommend On Site Bridal to anyone! They were amazing, friendly and affordable :)
