Beloved by brides and bridal parties for her calming presence, she creates a comfortable and relaxing environment on location. Nicole’s intelligence and stellar professionalism comes through in her beautiful makeup artistry, offering unsurpassed looks time and again. Read on to find out what her favorite on-site wedding location is and what she would tell her 13 year old self…

What do you like best about the age you are now? I love my 30’s. Every year I grow more comfortable in my skin and more settled into all aspects of my crazy my life! I wouldn’t wish to be back in my 20’s. I definitely had a blast but I’m happy to look back at those wild memories and see how far I’ve come!

What advice do you wish you could give your 13 year old self? Just trust everything will fall into place exactly as it is supposed to! And wear SPF 50 every day because they will turn into sunspots before you know it!!

What is the most exciting thing about your work industry? There are so many exciting aspects of my job; from fashion weeks, to visiting beautiful destinations all over the world, but the most exciting part of my job is meeting so many cool, strong, funny, interesting, independent  women.

 Your favorite on-site wedding location is… San Ysidro Ranch
When you’re not working, what do you love to do the most? When I’m not working I am spending time with my family and having early evening dance parties with my husband, 4 year daughter and 5 month old son!
Go-to song/TV show/movie…Homeland, 60 minutes (because I’m a grandma at heart)
If you could work on any wedding anywhere in the world, where would it be? Bali- it is my most favorite place in the world so any excuse to go back time and time again I am down!
