I am a mountain girl who doesn't do much with my hair and makeup but what Carol did to me on my wedding day was absolutely breathtaking! Literally....those who saw the reaction on my now husband's face when he saw me was a look my friends say they will never forget. I asked her to leave my hair down so she did some soft curls and pinned a couple spots up and then made my face flawless and my pictures show it! Thank you Carol for making the day even more perfect!!

Carol was amazing -- she made me look and feel absolutely beautiful on my wedding day -- I usually hate the way I look when I have someone do my hair and makeup, but this time I absolutely LOVED the way my hair and makeup turned out. She was also very friendly and efficient. Not only did I look great, but all the other ladies in my wedding party looked fabulous as well! I thought Carol's prices were very reasonable, especially considering that she had to drive 3 hours round trip to do the hair onsite at the Ahwahnee. The "extras" for lashes, extensions, etc. get a little steep, but Carol is up front about the prices and it is totally worth it :-) I would definitely recommend having Carol be a part of your wedding.

Carol was wonderful to work with. She was flexible with some last-minute changes on timing and arrived early in the morning and ready to go. Despite spending a few hours doing hair and make-up for a bride, two moms, and hair for a sister-in-law and flower girl, she remained full of energy and took the time needed to give everyone just the look they wanted. Using some pictures I sent for inspiration, she created a great vintage look for me. And my niece looked like a princess as the flower girl! All of the ladies felt beautiful thanks to Carol and her lovely work. Pictures available at: http://athenakalindiphotography.com/blog/

Carol did both my hair and makeup for my wedding and was able to come up with some beautiful, and sustainable (due to my specific hair type and the weather) styles for my day. Everything turned out beautiful and she was a lot of fun to work with!

While researching photographers online, I noticed quite a few mentioned Bellissimo Brides, and the photos of the brides were beautiful. I looked up Carol at Bellissimo and looked at her portfolio, and was instantly hooked. I knew I had to see if she was available on my wedding date. Luckily for me, she was, and had to problem with coming to the venue.
Carol was very flexible with my schedule for the trial run. I was in the middle of moving from Northern CA to Idaho, starting a new job, and planning a wedding. She worked with my schedule and we booked the trial. I was so happy with the trial, and she was so personable and friendly. She explained everything to me and what would work and not work (I'm not that savvy on make-up and hair).
The day of, Carol was right on time and got to work right away. She did my hair and make-up, my MOH hair and make-up, 2 bridesmaids hair, and 1 bridesmaid eye makeup. She was even able to help my fiancé with his under eye circles and made them disappear and he didn't look like he was wearing any make-up (a major concern for him). She did all this in 4 hours, by herself (and re-touched my make-up right before pictures). I was happy with the trial, but the day-of make-up was awesome, I've never felt that beautiful before. I was so confident, that I decided to do a Boudoir Session with the photographer before putting on my dress (something I was not sure if I was going to do or not). And I'm glad I did, the pictures came out beautiful, and I can't wait to surprise my fiancé with a little book for Christmas.
I can't praise Carol enough for all she did. She was professional and friendly and does awesome work. My make-up stayed on all day and night, I looked the same 10 hours later, even after dancing and hugging people and all the chaos. If you ask me, you should book with Carol. How many vendors will come to you? Not many in my research, and that made the day much more relaxing.

I loved the way I looked! I provided a picture of what I wanted and Carol was able to replicate it and make it work with my hair (which is naturally curly and really thick). I've always been weary of having my makeup done because I don't usually wear makeup and I'm always afraid the result won't really look like me. She did a great job! Her makeup really enhanced my features without making me feel really made up. I would definitely recommend her to anyone!

I had the pleasure of working with Carol Cardinale to do my hair and makeup for my wedding. I cant begin to tell you how happy I was with the results. My wedding was held at the Tenaya Lodge in September. Carol and 2 of her stylists arrived on time the morning of my event to do hair and makeup for me (the bride), my mother and my MOH. Carol and her staff are fun, friendly and simply do beautiful work. They kept us on schedule for photographs and I just couldn’t have asked for more. My hair and makeup were perfect. The up-do held from 1pm until after 1am (when the party ended). I highly recommend her to anyone getting married in and around the Yosemite area.

Carol was wonderful to work with. She was very quick to reply to all of my emails, and she looked at the pictures I liked and did her own interpretation of them. Her team was very nice and also did the hair of my mother and mother-in-law. My hair photographed beautifully.

If you are having your wedding in Yosemite, Bellissimo Brides is a no-brainer.
