Blanca Bertely Pándura

I want to thank Doranna for making me feel like a complete PRINCESS on my wedding day. To be honest, Im not the person who thought of my wedding day since I was a girl, but I knew I wanted to feel and look SPECIAL.
As my wedding was planned with a short period (less than 2 months), I didn’t have time to look on hair and makeup examples.. plus.. I thought.. even if I like a makeup or hair on certain model… it might not look the same with my face and hair type. Doranna arrived punctually (one of the reasons why I love her, specially when you live in Mexico, there are so many people that tell you certain time and arrive late OR don’t arrive at all!).
I wanted a more “Natural” look for my makeup, but at the same time, I wanted to look unique. For my hair I wanted an up do, as with the Riviera Maya Weather, having it down can get uncomfortable and hot. I told Doranna my ideas, she saw my wedding dress and started working. I have to say that I also love the way she made me feel when I was explaining her what I wanted.
She is so knowledgeable, warm and joyful to be around!! Just what I needed before I was about to say I DO. My mom was with us and I loved the way she clicked and talked to her while she was doing my hair and makeup. She just made us feel calmed, loved and happy.
She worked on my hair and makeup as she was a true magician. When she finished, I looked absolutely STUNNING!!!!! I looked at the mirror and thought to myself… WOW.. I`M A BRIDE!!!! I couldn’t stop staring at myself!! The best moment by far was seeing my husband’s hands on his mouth when he saw me for the first time followed by a huge smile and sparkling eyes saying “WOW!! YOU LOOK ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS” Definitely priceless.. plus Every 10 minutes he kissed me and said.. “wow.. woow” and all my family and friends complimenting me all night and even now in facebook gives me a big smile.
We had the wedding at 3pm and then the reception until 6:30pm. Even it was a very hot and humid day, I knew I would be fine (once again, that’s why I love her, she makes sure to use the best products that will last for the entire day). After the ceremony, we went to the beach to take some photos and then finished fixing up the details for the reception. 6:30pm and my hair and makeup were still INTACT! The best part is that my hair looked AND filed completely natural. Party over, 2am and my hair and makeup were still perfect. I got home and didn’t want to take it off. THANK YOU DORANNA!!!
I can imagine that for the brides who live abroad and don’t have a “test hair and makeup day” that can get a little worrying on their destination wedding at Riviera Maya, but you have my word that Doranna will be your ANGEL on your special day.
You can have the most stunning dress, but remember that your hair and makeup are also ESSENTIAL. My advice on all the future brides that will tie the knot here in Riviera Maya is to stop looking around and call Doranna!!!
Gracias de Corazon por todo, siempre estare muy agradecida!!!
