Meet the Team
Firstly, if you’re reading this – thank you! That means you have visited this site with interest in The Bridal Above! My name is Kelly and I have worked pretty hard the last 9 years building a travel business to accommodate brides and their bridal parties on-location! I have usually done this with the support of Amy, owner of AMS Loft Salon, where I work full time doing hair! That is where we host our in-house brides and bridal parties! I have a husband, Joe, two daughters, Ada and Evelyn, two dogs, and a cat!
Thanks again for visiting and we can’t wait to spend your wedding day with you!
I have been in the makeup industry for over 15 years in both selling and freelancing capacities. To be involved in an industry where you can be both creative and make someone feel good about themselves brings such joy to my life. If I’m not applying makeup, you can always find me buying some!!
I have been a full-time esthetician and bridal makeup artist for over two years. I am an esthetician at Synergy Salon and Spa in Scranton and also I am a freelance bridal makeup artist. I specialize in elevated natural glam. Connecting with my brides is the most rewarding part of my job. Playing such an important role in someone’s big day means so much to me. PS: fair warning you will not get rid of me on your wedding day without a hug because I live for a bride hug.
My favorite part about being in the wedding industry is the freedom to express my creativity, and work in various locations around the state and even throughout the country! When I am not doing hair, you can find me bartending. While I recently discovered a new love for hiking mountains, my one true love will always be Diet Coke!
For most of my life, I have been obsessed with every single detail about weddings. So for it to grow into my profession, is a dream. I get to connect with so many amazing people and vendors, especially brides. I have been in this industry for 7 years and counting! My favorite part about hair dressing is all of the creativity involved with it. I love making everyone who sits in my chair feel like a beautifully enhanced version of themselves 🤍
To future bridal parties: I can’t wait to meet you and make you pretty!
Hello, my name is Maura Bidwell and I am a Senior Makeup Artist with over 10 years experience. Not only have I had the opportunity to dress the faces of hundreds of brides and bridesmaids, but I also work full time as an Investigation Management Specialist, helping those with ID/Autism diagnoses within our community. It is my goal to help each and every bride and bridesmaid look their best on their special day. I want everyone to feel comfortable and feel the best they’ve ever felt when leaving our appointment. My goals are open communication and effectiveness to ensure that each individual I work with achieves the look and experience they’ve always dreamed of. I look forward to working with each and every one of you that come my way. Hope to see you soon!
