Proud to be Bride’s Choice 2012!
Thanks to the brides who have reviewed me on WeddingWire and shared their experience with so many others, I am pleased to announce that Makeup Artistry by Liz has won the Bride’s Choice Award for 2012, in the beauty/health category. (I am one of only two award recipients in this category & region, and the only winning artist based in Western Massachusetts!)
I absolutely love what I do, am grateful to have the opportunity to do it, and am beyond flattered that brides recognize and appreciate my hard work and skills. I’m looking forward to more amazing weddings this year and beyond!
Well-deserved congratulations to the other local vendors who made Bride’s Choice, including several I’ve had the pleasure to work with: the Springfield Marriott, Cronin Hill Photography, Seth Kaye Photography, Forget Me Not Florist, & Eutopia Events.
