Makeup by Dara
Hi, friends! I’m Dara, the face behind Makeup by Dara. I started this little business of mine over 8 years ago when I became a licensed esthetician. I booked my first wedding on a whim and was instantly hooked! Hundreds of weddings later, I still truly feel like I’m working my dream job. After I had my son (now 4 years old), I decided not to return to my job as an esthetician and instead stay home with Declan and focus on my makeup business. I am truly blessed to get the best of both worlds: being a stay-at-home mama and continuing my passion in makeup artistry. When I’m not working, you will most likely find me shopping at Target for hours on end, working out, or preferably in Disneyland (my home away from home) where we try to go every month or two because I literally cannot get enough of the magic.
TradeMark is the creative love child of Nicole & Candi (best friends), a paper loving duo from right here in California’s beautiful Central Valley!

With styles aptly named “the mullet” and “loves letters”, you can trust they will bring your wedding day vision to life with hand painted artwork and all the personal touches.
Scribble and Script
Shelley is owner and head calligrapher (ok, the ONLY calligrapher) of Scribble & Script. Her love of typography manifested itself into a business nearly 3 years ago completely by happy accident. She has made a successful business from sharing her hand lettering knowledge through teaching over 100 workshops and creating one of a kind pieces in the wedding industry. If you ever see Shelley in public, please stop her and tell her your favorite song to karaoke.
