A Dream Come True posted 5/18/2015
My wife and I were married on Saturday September 20, 2014. When marriage equality passed in MN in 2013, we knew immediately that the only person that could capture the beauty we wanted to feel on our special day was Lori Sherrick of MN Bridal Hair and Makeup Artistry. Lori and makeup artist, Megan, made our dreams come true. We knew immediately upon consulting with them that we were in good hands. We felt so comfortable with them both. It was great to be able to transform into brides together before our special day. Our visions came true before our eyes. On the day of our wedding, we were able to get ready in our suite and they truly made our experience a relaxing and stress free time. They were both so warm and welcoming to our friends and family. Our bridal party was blown away at what a beautiful job they had done for all of us. They were professional, efficient, and all while making us feel so at ease. All of our friends and family raved about how stunning our hair and makeup was. Of the 7 years that I have been with my beautiful wife, I have never seen her glow more than that memorable day. Thank you for making our dreams come true.
PERFECTION 4 a bride with naturally curly hair! + makeup posted 4/24/2015
Having naturally curly hair and wanting it be natural on my wedding day, made me very nervous when it came to finding someone to do my hair. People who have naturally curly hair know, it’s almost impossible to find someone who knows how to work with curly hair. Laurie was amazing! She listened to what I had to say and did such an amazing job. I had 2 trials before the wedding to make sure my hair was exactly the way I wanted it with my natural curls. She came to my house and was fun, sweet and easy to work with. It was easy to see that she truly cares about each and every bride. After a day of wedding dress shopping it was nice to have that genuine feeling. Laurie showed up early on my wedding day and was promptly ready to go. She also did my mom, bridesmaids and flower girls hair which also looked amazing!
Kumi came along with Laurie and did all of our make up. We all did the spray brush which looking fantastic for our video and all the pictures. Everyone looked stunning!
I highly recommend every bride to be worry free on your wedding day and have them do your hair and make up. (Yes it’s a bit of a sludge) but for me, there was nothing better than waking up the morning of my wedding and getting to enjoy the day stress free after all the planning I had done!!
The Only Way To Go! posted 10/16/2014 (updated 11/6/2014)
In a word: wow. I know people are supposed to say how great you look on your wedding day, but people have not stopped complimenting us on our hair and makeup and asking us who did it. I am not much of girly girl, but I wanted to look great for my wedding day and we had chosen a gorgeous venue and a great photographer–I needed to look the part! I am so glad we did this. Lori and Meghan from MN Bridal Hair & Makeup Artistry made me look and feel AMAZING. Their experience really shows through in how professional they are in answering questions, addressing concerns and making suggestions. They came to our home for a trial run prior to the wedding and we had so much fun with them. They can do everything from vintage styles to what’s on trend today. We treated all the women in our wedding party to their services and we could not have been happier. Lori and Meghan were not only professional, but also funny and fun to be around. If you are looking for celebrity level hair and make up styling for your big day, this is the only way to go. I really cannot thank them enough for how special they made me feel or how grateful I am that they absolutely nailed it on my wedding day!
Choosing Lori to do my hair and Sarah to do my makeup, as well as my mom, sister, and mother in law was probably the best decision I made in my wedding planning. We all looked great! Our hair and makeup lasted all day. It took all the stress of getting ready out of my hands. I personally feel there is way too much to do on your wedding day. No matter how good you are at doing your own hair and make up, leave it to these professionals. AND they came to us. We didn’t have to drive to a salon and then drive to another location to get dressed. A huge time saver! They had all the cutting edge products and tools that would honestly have cost us thousands if we tried to replicate their services ourselves. They did a great job helping us pick out styles that were fashionable and flattering both in person and in photos. They were talented, experienced, timely and joy to be around.
Lori worked with me to deliver the exact hairstyle I was looking for. She was a great listener, had tons of great ideas, and was super fun to work with. She helped me find what my words could not describe and I couldn’t be happier with my wedding hairstyle. On the day of my wedding, she was early and was a definite source of CALM for me. Her services were such a great value and the quality was remarkable – I wish I could get married everyday so she could do my hair!
