Who’s Who of Tampa Bay Wedding Pros: LDM Beauty Group

 

Bride to Be Facebook Group Banner
There are many perks working in the wedding industry, and one of them is knowing some of the best makeup artists in town. I’ve had the pleasure of working with the owner of LDM Beauty Group, Lindsay MacConnell, on numerous occasions, and what has always stood out to me is the calmness that she exudes.

The morning of your wedding can be chaotic. Imagine trying wrangle multiple girls to get their hair and makeup done, while also having constant interruptions on top of normal jitters. Lindsay’s presence is chill and go with the flow, but with a sense of urgency. She’ll let you spill all the family tea, blend in the background, or even talk you off the ledge if that’s what you need, but she’ll also make sure you’re ready when your photographer needs you for portraits.

Combine that with her 16 years of makeup experience, professionalism, and attention to detail and you have one talented beauty artist who will be the secret weapon on your wedding day.

“I looked for someone who I could get along with and laugh with because I’m spending a lot of hours on the most important day of the my life with them; I wanted them to have fun too! I also wanted someone who was a good listener and could bring what I imagined to life!” the bride explained. “Lindsay, the owner of LDM Beauty Group was awesome! During my trial we got a long great, laughed a lot, she was easy to talk to and listened to what I wanted my make up to look like. She made it really comfortable to give my opinion and make changes where I wanted. Their service was great! She’s very professional and was early for all of our appointments and stayed through the ceremony to touch up my makeup!” – Kim and Darnell | Starry Night Inspired Clearwater Wedding

What inspired you to start your business?
I love to make people smile. I love to watch a face light up. I love a beautiful bride. So, it was a organic transition from working in retail cosmetics to having my own business, which I started out just as a freelancer. Then I grew to a place that I could give opportunities to artists I had known and admired already for years. That’s so fulfilling, to watch amazing artists do their craft and make even more clients glow. I love it.

Where do you draw your inspiration?
Where don’t I? My motto is: Every day is a new adventure. Go out and see the world for the beauty it holds.

I’m an endurance athlete, and the drive my athlete friends have for their sport gets me moving in the morning. The passion my artists have for their craft and their desire to work keeps me focused on growing the business to provide awesome opportunities for them. My clients who write reviews raving about their experience reaffirms that I’m doing the right thing. People in my personal life who remind me of how far I’ve come, keep me pushing forward.

What is one of your favorite things about being a wedding professional?
We get to be an integral part of setting someone up to have an amazing wedding day. Makeup and hair are normally the first vendors a bride sees, so we set the tone for the day. And the tone is always the same: calm, stress-free and fun, but always on time.

What makes your business stand out from others?
I’m super lucky to have this incredible network of artists. All of the artists who work with LDM Beauty Group are veterans in the industry. They’ve done everything from the Emmy’s to superheroes. They’ve worked in major markets and have hundreds of clients under their brushes. I can tell you, we are the best of the best in our craft.

But the other thing that these artists are, simply put; they are amazing people. They are all down to earth, kind, generous, wonderful people who love to make other people happy. It’s what sets them apart. When you sit in the chair of an LDM Beauty Group Artist, you’re going to look amazing and have a wonderful experience. That’s the good stuff.

Reviews From Previous Marry Me Tampa Bay Couples:

“As much as I love makeup, I actually didn’t go into my consulting appointment with much inspiration. I wanted the artist to surprise me by giving me her best glowing bridal look given my features. Lindsay [of LDM Beauty Group] was recommended to me by another makeup artist my mom used. I booked a consultation with Lindsay and loved my look so much that I immediately booked her for myself and bridesmaids. She did an amazing job the day of and was so kind to stay with me until after the ceremony for touch-ups because I cried four times (hard ugly cry), yes four times!” -Lindsey and Spencer | Boho Downtown Tampa Wedding 

“Nicole from LDM Beauty Group was my artist, and she listened to everything I wanted and made me feel comfortable. She was super sweet and more than just my makeup artist; I was so glad to have her there for the day.” -Romina and Armando | Traditional Blush, Ivory and Gold Wedding | Countryside Country Club
