On Saturday December 2nd, our stylist traveled to the Courtyard Marriott on City Line Ave for our beautiful brides Sarah and Andrea. They both enjoyed their preview sessions at our Old City location in the Fall and they were really looking forward to being pampered again on their Big Day. All of the girls decided on our traditional makeup with a very natural look. Our traditional makeup is wonderful, it lasts all day and night so why not.. especially if it’s not a summer month and you won’t be sweating, our traditional makeup has major staying power. Our brides really paid attention to detail and they had unique hangers for their gowns which each had their names written out in wire. After enjoying the morning of getting ready, they took a stroll together through Historic Manayunk, one of the oldest towns in Philadelphia, with its cobblestone paving and very hilly streets. The brides wore matching white fur capes and they both looked simply stunning!

Our couple’s entire day was filled with such love, joy, fun and laughter. As they exchanged their vows and pledged their love, you can feel the wonderful and beautiful commitment between them.

Their reception was at the distinctive Artesano Gallery in Manayunk. It is the newest and trendiest grand venue in town where you are surrounded by architectural hand forged iron works, white marble tiled floors, a magnificent green wall and a grand staircase. You are able to host your ceremony, seamlessly and move into your cocktail hour and then transition to your reception – all under one roof. The in-house catering services are led by their internationally-trained Executive Chef Kelly Cook.

Everyone danced the night away and a fabulous time was had by all!

Thank you to Handelman Photography for sending us these amazing photos of our happy couple.

We wish our brides a lifetime of love and happiness!

On a beautiful sunny summer morning Saturday, August 19th, our stylists traveled on location to the Philadelphia Marriott in Conshohocken to do hair and makeup for our beautiful bride Amanda and her bridal party.

The girls had such a great time together, they stayed overnight at the hotel, waking up and having nothing to worry about but relaxation and being pampered. All of the girls wore matching satin robes as they relaxed and sipped champagne from their name engraved glasses, such a nice touch. They all chose to wear their hair in up do’s while Amanda wore her hair down with large long flowing curls, which looked absolutely gorgeous with her pearl trimmed veil. We have found that brides are opting to wear their hair down and asking their bridal party to wear updos so that their hair looks completely different. Amanda’s wedding dress was from the Pronovias Collection of Gowns by Design with its beautiful strapless lace top and sparkling pearls throughout, it was simply stunning. The bridal party wore pretty solid lilac colored dresses that were gathered at the top from Bill Levkoff. Their bouquets were a beautiful collection of white, pink and lilac colored roses with some rhododendron and baby breath .

Amanda and her groom Mike were married at the Appleford Estate in Villanova, PA. The 24 picturesque acres has a beautiful tree lined drive and an amazing serene beauty of lush gardens, brick lined walkways, streams, ponds and waterfalls that can be enjoyed during any season. The early Pennsylvania historic house dates back 300 years and is often used for weddings with a spectacular view of the gardens from every window. What a fabulous backdrop for such an unforgettable day!

After enjoying the spectacular food provided by the award winning John Serock Catering , everyone danced the night away to the amazing  DJ Walter Breslin with Silver Sound Entertainment!

We would like to thank Kristi Telnov Photography for sharing these amazing wedding pictures with us. They did an excellent job capturing the beauty of the day including the fun, laughter and all of the love surrounding this wonderful couple.

We wish Amanda and Mike all the best as they start this next chapter as husband and wife.


Our stylists arrived early Saturday morning at the Loews Hotel in Center City, Philadelphia for hair and makeup services for the bride Aryelle and her bridal party. With twenty hair and makeup services to do, we wanted to get an early start. The girls were gorgeous to begin with so our job was very easy. The bride and bridesmaids were all prepared wearing pretty floral robes that are perfect for hair and makeup services.  All of the girls decided on airbrush makeup because it is the summertime in Philadelphia and the heat and humidity in Philadelphia will definitely make you sweat, they didn’t want to risk their makeup being anything but perfect. Most of the bridesmaids decided to wear their hair down, some with braids, curls and waves and two of the bridesmaids wanted full updo hairstyles with no hair on their neck. Everyone looked fabulous and the time that we spent with everyone while getting ready was so much fun and special because the bridal party was all together spending quality time with the bride leading up to the ceremony. We enjoyed working with the wedding planner Jennifer from Kaleidoscope Solutions. Jennifer kept us in the loop with service numbers, the room number and schedule. Aryelle and her groom Eric took advantage of the awesome weather by strolling around Philly holding hands and enjoying the quiet time together. The reception was held at the beautiful Crystal Tea Room.  The Crystal Tea Room is situated in the heart of Philadelphia steps away from City Hall.  Beautiful carved columns and opulent crystal chandeliers make this ballroom timeless and the perfect room for a wedding reception. Thank you Philip Gabriel Photography for sharing your amazing photos, you are one of our favorites and your images are always spectacular. We love that you always capture the love and fun in all of your photos. Thank you to the beautiful bride for using Bella Angel for hair and makeup and to the vendors that we worked with for your professionalism.

On the very early morning of Sunday, April 9th, our Bella Angel stylists traveled on location to the Le Meridian Hotel to do hair and makeup for our beautiful bride Madison and her beautiful bridal party. Madison decided on a soft side updo hairstyle where she incorporated a unique twisted braid. The bride finished her bridal look wearing a gorgeous vintage dress that her grandmother wore in the 1950’s and it went perfectly with their beautiful historical venue the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts . Madison never had a chance to meet her grandmother so she wanted to honor her by wearing her wedding gown and it was pretty spectacular as you can see in the photos. She looked absolutely stunning. Madison’s bridesmaids wore unique styled white and pale pink chiffon dresses which complimented Madison’s look, The bridesmaids all decided on completely different hairstyles. Madison and her bridesmaids all looked amazing!

We wish to thank Heidi Roland for sharing her amazing photos with us. We wish the newlyweds all the best in this new chapter in their lives.
