Fall Wedding in NYC


Kimberly Cheng had the most beautiful Fall Wedding. It was quintessential New York, complete with a stunning bride, handsome groom, city views, the New York Public Library, yellow taxi cabs and the incredible Studio 450 Loft Space. Everything was sheer perfection, including her makeup (done by yours truly, Michelle Stern) and her amazing photos taken by JanelleBrookePhotography.com

The bride was kind enough to share her photo album with me and there were so many gorgeous pictures that I had to share a few!

Everyone in the bridal party wanted soft, romantic makeup that glowed and I gave them exactly what they wanted. What a beautiful group of women!







The photographer caught the tiniest bit of me and the makeup I was using to apply the final touches


This is what Kim had to say…

“Michelle is amazing!!! She did make-up for me, my mom and 7 bridesmaids at my wedding. She has mastered the beautiful, flawless, but NATURAL look that I think all brides are looking for on their wedding day. I usually wear very little make up, and I was terrified of looking too made up at my wedding, but I also wanted to look great in the thousands of photos I was going to be in that day. I got a lot of referrals for other make-up artists from my other vendors but I perused their websites and didn’t really like what I was seeing. I found Michelle on Wedding Wire, and I’m so glad I did! At our trial, I told Michelle I wanted to look natural but bridal, and that’s all she needed. Everyone in my wedding party looked absolutely gorgeous and also totally themselves. My make-up stayed on through several emotional (aka crying) moments and was still perfect 14 hours later. Michelle is super responsive over email, showed up early, was very professional, uses high-quality make-up, and has a lovely, calming vibe about her that I just love. She is just so sweet and so talented and I have referred her to all the brides I know (she is doing one of my bridesmaid’s make-up at her wedding in June!).”
