“I think every bride is beautiful in her own way and it’s my job to bring out and enhance her best features and natural beauty.” What more could you want to hear from your makeup artist? Elena of Elena T Beauty is not only incredibly talented, but is also one of the sweetest people out there. She helps brides look and feel their absolute best on their special day, and it means so much to her to be a part of it. Elena is one of those people who gets to do what they love for a living, and it totally shows in her beautiful work. We had such a blast with Elena at the third San Diego NotWedding and we can’t wait to work with her again!

“Elena is fun, flexible, funny, and welcoming with anyone she comes in contact with. She makes a bride and her bridesmaids feel like an absolute beauty already and her skill and talent only highlights that! She has an eye for enhancing beauty in someone and is a wonderful person to work with. We love her!”
The San Diego NotWedding Team



Describe Elena T Beauty in five words or less.
Professional, Creative, Elegant, Diligent & Friendly


What’s the biggest risk you’ve taken?
The jump from a regular 9-5 Monday-Friday steady income and clientele to doing it all on my own. Also, getting up the courage to solely rely on no one else but myself.


Describe the ultimate bride to work with.
My ultimate bride would be someone who is fun-loving, open-minded and who is looking to have a natural makeup look. I think every bride is beautiful in her own way and it’s my job to bring out and enhance her best features and natural beauty.


What is the happiest part of your day?
I could answer this two ways. In a wedding day sense, it would be when the bride’s face lights up when she sees her makeup all done for the first time. That look is priceless and I wish more photographers would capture that. In an everyday sense, I would say being able to wake up and not only be my own boss, but to go into “work” and not feel like it’s “work.”


What is your favorite part of The NotWedding experience?
Everything! From meeting all the organizers, to networking with different vendors, to ultimately meeting potential brides. There are so many parts that come together to make The NotWedding such a huge success and when things run so smoothly and effortlessly, it makes for a well rounded amazing experience. One that I will never forget and always be grateful to have been a part of.
