About Us

How We Began

Amanda and Cynthia are a sister-duo who have a passion for weddings!


Our love for weddings began shortly after we started planning Amanda’s wedding in early 2016. We quickly realized that there was an abundant amount of time, effort and preparation that came along with getting ready for the big day. There were so many meticulous details, big and small, but we truly enjoyed the entire process.


We then started helping friends plan their own weddings. We were able to take it a step further and be there to fulfill the important roles of transforming the bridal party through our makeup service as well as coordinating the entire wedding day. We saw how much our assistance was valued and we knew we had found our calling.
 

Our personalities complement each other perfectly. There is Amanda who is methodical and loves to strategize and Cynthia who is artistic and loves all things makeup; together we form the perfect team. Our thoughtfulness and enthusiasm for our Brides and Grooms and their weddings is obvious. 


With Amanda’s passion for wedding planning and Cynthia’s love for makeup, My Wedding Fairies was started in 2017.

She does this by hiding any flaws and highlighting each person's best features using only the best cosmetic products and skilled application techniques. "I understand that although makeup is superficial, there is something about it that touches women deep within. I feel so much joy when my clients see themselves for the first time after I'm finished with their makeup transformation. They get an immediate boost in self-confidence and fall in love with what they see in the mirror. I love making women feel empowered."
