How we met
Kristina and I met at a local bridal show in Sugar Land, Texas. She was there with her mother when they came by my table for information about services. Her personality was bubbly and she had an infectious sense of humor. We laughed and briefly talked about her wedding before they moved on to the next table.
After the show, Kristina reached out to me to get pricing info and to talk about her look. She came in for a trial with her mom and we had the best time. We laughed and talked like we had known each other for years.
The wedding day
Kristina was cool. We cracked jokes (as usual) while we got started on the bridal party. She had a small party (3 bridesmaids) so we were able to finish them in a timely manor with no stress.
For her hair:
Originally Kristina wanted a half up, half down style but as I was curling her hair on the wedding day we (the bridesmaids and I) came to a unanimous decision that an all down hairstyle would be a better fit for her look. She agreed of course!
For her makeup:
Kristina chose a soft neutral look. One that was timeless and classic topping things off with a nude lip and lashes.
For her bridesmaids:
Team NGB did hair for one bridesmaid and makeup for all three bridesmaids. We did hair and makeup for both the bride’s mother and the groom’s mother as well.
What did she say?
“Let me tell y’all about this gem! Nyoka Gregory Beauty is seriously a gift from God. I met her at the beginning stages of my planning process and she changed my life from there! I told her that I wanted a very natural look on my big day because I do not wear makeup and I wear my hair in a curly Afro the majority of the time. She assured me that everything will come out perfectly and it did! She slayed my entire bridal party and I gave her no directions. I just let her and her team work their magic! Over time, Nyoka has become a sister to me and she is my permanent makeup artist from now on. Thank you again for making me and my squad beautiful on my big day!!! You the real MVP!!!!”
