In the Community: Mercy Medical Center 2017

Did you know our team routinely provides makeovers for patients undergoing cancer treatments at Mercy Medical Center. Together, we discover that styling their wigs, re-creating their eyebrows and adding eyelashes to their beautiful faces brings a smile to ours! We also enjoyed pampering the incredible staff who care for them.

SmartCEO Brava Awards 2016

2016 SmartCEO's Brava Awards 

SmartCEO's Brava Awards celebrates top female CEO's and executives in the nation! These women run successful, thriving businesses and have a passion for giving back by mentoring future leaders, coaching sports teams, fundraising for local charities and making a difference in their communities. Our very own, Up Do's For I Do's CEO, Ashley Riddle, was recognized as one of these wonderful and inspiring women. 

The Up Do's For I Do's Board of Directors (and a couple of VIP guests) attended the award ceremony this past July and it was truly a welcomed break from the day-to-day office work!

Go O's - Team Outing!

Told you! #selfietime Caitlin, Jess, Samantha and Ashley

Let's Go, O's! 

Taking a break from our lipgloss and curling irons, this past summer we visited Camden Yards to treat ourselves to some BASEBALL fun! We LOVE to cheer on our favorite team, take selfies in the stands, eat a (vegan) hot dog or two and have a beer.  What a great team building experience!

Behind the Scenes: Editorial Shoot

Yesterday we had the pleasure of helping Stephanie Bradshaw and team with a photo shoot in the Woodberry area of Baltimore. The stellar images from Jennifer Hughes will grace the pages of Baltimore Bride Magazine in 2013. With dresses pulled from Bella Bridesmaid and Garnish, our groomsman dressed by Christopher Schafer, the models were flawless.
