Ideas We Love

Welcome to
Ideas We Love
This Week our FRESH idea to keep you inspired is...

We LOVE it when our brides tell us that they want to take dance lessons before their wedding day! Dance lessons are so much fun - there are endless style and music possibilities available to make your day magical! You can choreograph a dance just for your bridesmaids, plan a sentimental dance with your father, or sweep your guests of their feet with a playful first dance.

Fred Astaire offers customized wedding dance programs that give you the confidence and skill to perform a variety of dances. In a short amount of time, their qualified instructors can help you learn a few basic steps or choreograph the whole dance for you. Whether you want simple instruction or choreographed dances for the entire wedding party, they can help! This is also a great way to have fun and relax, enjoying time together while learning how to dance. Your first dance is such an everlasting expression of love and commitment... make it unique!

Meet The Team

Welcome to
Meet The Team
This Week we are introducing the truly talented
 Tampa Makeup Artist Team of Jess Waldrop

We love, love, love working with Jess and her girls!
They are professional, dynamic, and create AMAZING artistry!
 Here is a quick Bio on each of her team members
so that you can get to know them better...

Jess Waldrop: Artistic Coordinator/Lead Makeup Artist
Co-Owner of Studio 2 Event Styling

"I adore Makeup in every way. How it can change your mood and bring you to life. I was influenced by my Grandmother. Seeing her collection of antique lip sticks and rouge gave me my unique style which has a vintage classic feel.
Weddings have always been one of my favorite events to be apart of. I love helping with the finishing touches on the day a women has waited for her whole life. Being there for the bride and helping her to relax and feel beautiful is so important to me.

My official makeup training began at Permanent Choices Training Center in Alameda, Ca.
I specialized in Permanent Makeup, Scar Coverage and
Areola Reconstruction. After 3 years of running a successful business I started working for M.A.C Cosmetics. There I fine tuned my makeup skills, became a Product Specialist and trained employees on new products and techniques. Experience followed as I took jobs with top agencies like SMG and Wilhelmina and spent several years working with photographers from around the world on projects in print and commercial. I have since moved to Tampa Fl with my husband and two children.
Currently, I am working on several exciting projects, which includes developing my signature brush line and building our new Makeup Studio from the ground up! I lead a team of amazing Artists who specialize in Wedding and Event Makeup, In-door/Outdoor Photography Makeup, Boudoir, Fashion Photography, Print, Commercial, Avant Garde and Comp Cards."

Crystal Eller - Makeup Artist/Cosmetologist
"Do what you love, love what you do ...which brings me to this. I am a dream chaser. I have a love for life and making others smile and feel beautiful! I graduated from Paul Mitchell the School Tampa with my license in Cosmetology.
My passion is makeup! I have worked with amazing photographers in Print, Boudoir and Fashion. My absolute favorite events to be apart of are weddings! To me there is just something about being there for the bride on her special day she’s dreamed about since she was a child that makes my heart smile. It is my honor and privilege to work with a bride and alleviate as much stress as possible and bring an aspect of your "dream wedding" to life.I believe that life is constantly evolving and I choose to evolve with it. I believe a Stylist or Makeup Artist can never stop learning and bettering their skills. At the moment I am pursuing my license in Permanent Cosmetics and I am also becoming certified in Eyelash Extensions. I look forward to meeting you."

Nicole Boyle – Makeup Artist/Stylist "As a Makeup Artist I have the privilege of helping people look and feel unbelievable about themselves, which to me, is most rewarding. I dove into makeup at a very young age, sitting on my mother’s bathroom floor smearing lipsticks and eye shadows on everything in reach including my face! As a teen I started to experiment with different cosmetic lines, colors, textures, products and really began to appreciate the power of makeup.

At 21, I moved to NYC to attend Make-Up Designory in SoHo, where I studied Fashion Makeup Artistry. I had the opportunity to learn from many different and talented artists. While in NYC I was lucky enough to work with amazing professionals including photographers and models from top agencies like Wilhelmina, Click, and Ford to name a few.

I have recently moved back to FL and I am enjoying every minute of working with Jess and our clients. Working with brides is extra special. It gives me an incredible feeling to know that I can be a part of a woman’s special day and make her so happy with just the little time we spend together. Currently I am also freelancing for M.A.C Cosmetics. I am so thrilled that I am able to share my knowledge and passion for makeup with others. No matter how much or how little makeup you use, it is important to introduce your personal style and, I feel, it will always brighten your day!
