Knowing what I know now, if I needed to look pretty but remain cool, calm and collected, I would want you in the room. The quiet and efficient way you work while still being fun and friendly was ideal. Your flexibility with people being added at the last minute and having to move from the hotel to Beaulieu Gardens as well as helping to make me presentable was very much appreciated. Your talent at fixing Kendall's hair and applying her makeup to enhance her natural looks was absolutely perfect...and it all stayed as it should through the entire evening. :-) I loved seeing Alex's face when he first saw her walking toward him on her dad's arm. Priceless. Thank you so much for being a part of our wonderful day. My best to you. Enjoy your new location.

10 stars for Nellie!! Nellie helped me get ready for my wedding day in Stinson Beach and I couldn’t have felt more beautiful. We started a few months before with my hair and makeup trial, which was so helpful to see a few different looks and what I liked best, after bringing in a few photos for inspiration. She took some photos so she would know exactly what I wanted on my wedding day. 
Her and her assistant, Phillipa, helped me and 5 bridesmaids get ready on the morning of. Nellie came on time and had her whole station ready for me and my girls promptly when she said she would. We all loved the end product! We had an outdoor wedding and unfortunately experienced an unexpected hour of rain showers. After my first look, Nellie stayed longer than expected and helped me touch up my hair and makeup which had fallen a bit after the rain showers (had no umbrellas!), which was desperately needed and SO appreciated. She went above and beyond to stay and help me during a very stressful part of the day. 
The makeup she did for me was very tasteful and natural and I loved how it looked and stayed all night thru lots of tears during the ceremony and sweating on the dance floor! I also loved my hair style, half up/half down with a braid, curls, and a little bit of baby’s breath to tie it all together. Nellie is so kind and kept me calm throughout the morning. I’ve been a long time client with Nellie throughout the years in her San Francisco salon, and she has never let me down. 
Thank you Nellie, for making me look and feel beautiful, for being so kind and professional, and being a part of my dream wedding day. I will never forget it, and highly recommend her to anyone and everyone!

Thank you for making me into a beautiful bride on my wedding day! You are so wonderfully talented!

I am very glad that I chose you as my make up artist for my wedding day because you are so patient, flexible and easy to work with. The wedding day make up and hair came out fantastic and made me so special. I also appreciate the nice touch up you did for me before the wedding ceremony and reception even though I gave you such a short notice. Thank you very much for the great job!

I just had the opportunity to see some photos my friends took at the wedding, and I'm so happy with the work you did for my mother, my bridesmaids, my mother-in-law and myself! Thank you! You are truly an artist and a great professional - despite the craziness of so many relatives and friends in such a small room, I appreciate the coolness and calm you brought to the beginning of a very eventful day.

I want to thank you for being a part of our wedding celebration. All of our guests were complimenting on me on my hair and make-up - thanks to you! I will soon head out to Korea to see my parents and I cannot wait until I tell my mom how wonderful the ceremonies were.
