I hired Kimberly for my wedding makeup/hair in April 2015 and for makeup/hair services for my mom, sister (matron of honor), and 1 bridesmaid. She brought a different makeup artist to work on my mom, sister, and bridesmaid on the wedding day and the lady did a great job, and re-did my mom’s eye makeup without question when my mom asked her to. Kimberly is very personable and down-to-earth. I price-hunted a lot for wedding hair/makeup services and turned out that Kimberly was probably the least expensive I found, and luckily, she also does fantastic work—check out her website! Her trial fee is also inexpensive, which I’m so appreciative of because I think it’s just plain wrong to charge brides $200+ for a trial, which I came across several times when calling around for prices. She doesn’t rush and has a great eye, which is great since I didn’t give her much direction (ie. natural looking makeup and vintage-y style hair). I also consulted Kimberly on flowers, but ended up not hiring her for flowers due to cost savings—a family friend was able to provide table arrangements at a fantastic price and I bought fabric bouquets from Etsy.
Kimberly at Bings Design is AMAZING! The soft, peach and pink pastel color palette she put together in my bridal and bridesmaid bouquets were beautiful. They were full of seasonal dahlias, roses, poppies. By sending her a picture of my wedding gown, she was able to help me choose the color of my satin ribbon and lace that would compliment the dress. I was very happy with how they turned out. Also, the groom and groomsmen boutonnieres turned out perfect based on a picture I found on pinterest. They were masculine and added the perfect touch to tie in with the rest of the flowers at my wedding. I would highly recommend working with Bings Design.
I used Kimberly for both my hair and makeup and flowers. She did a great job listening to what I wanted and brought it to life. She did a beatiful updo with braids and she kept my make-up more natural, which is my style. In the trial, she worked for hours to make sure she got it exactly how I wanted it. On the flowers, I loved them! I have a weird thing against roses, so she listened to my feedback and did beautiful colorful arrangements with no roses. They were so vibrant and beautiful, exactly what I wanted. Kimberly has a nice, calm personality which helps if you are anxious on your wedding day. I highly reccomend her. She doesn’t own a shop, which keeps overhead lower and her prices reasonable.
Kimberly did my hair and make up for my big day in June. She was great to work with right from the first email to the last moment. I did my own flowers and Kimberly was so kind as to offer her professional advice!Overall, the experience was wonderful. If you are looking for a make up and hair artist that listens to what you want and is very pleasant to work with, get in touch with Kimberly!
Kimberly is a multi-talented professional. She not only took care of flower arrangements for a 2-day event at two different venues, but also hair and make-up for the bridal party +1. She did an excellent job at my sister’s wedding last year; and came highly recommended. Overall, she is fantastic to work with. We could not have hoped for a better florist/hair and make-up person!Experienced: Kimberly’s skill and creativity are reflected in her portfolio. Take a look – I highly recommend it.Professional: She’s very detail-oriented. In the initial meeting, she covers numerous topics and details which we hadn’t even considered at that point. For the events, we provided her with our schedule and timeline – she was spot-on with all of it. This is especially helpful because wedding days can be very hectic.Motivated: From working with her, it’s clear that she is hard-working and passionate about her craft. This enthusiasm is also reflected in her portfolio.Likeable: Kimberly is great to work with. Her extensive experience allows her to be extremely sympathetic to the couple’s (and especially the bride’s) needs. Weddings can be quite intense; and this makes your special day so much better.Affordable: Our event spanned 2 days, but we were also on a budget. Kimberly worked with us to make sure we would be happy with all the arrangements, while fitting in into our budget.
Kimberly was very professional from start to finish, and her work quality was exceptional. I had been planning my Bay Area wedding from Alaska, so any chance of a face to face consultation was slim. However, during a preliminary phone conference, she was able to focus my ideas into a cohesive design for my wedding. It was then that I knew I wanted Bings Design. When it came down to seeing the final product on the day of our wedding, my husband and I were speechless. Since the church was already adorned with beautiful spring arrangements, we only needed centerpieces for the reception. The theme of the wedding was somewhat vintage inspired, so the tall arrangements had pearls cascading around them. The low arrangements also had smaller drapes of pearls, which created an elegant touch to the classic theme. Kimberly had also applied my makeup and gave me a 1920s Hollywood glam inspired hair style. The entire look was picture perfect, and I can’t imagine having it any other way.
I am extremely happy with Kimberly’s service. It was great working with Kimberly. She listened to what I have to say and helped me make what I envision become reality. She was never pushy. It was difficult for me to make decisions and Kimberly was super patient with me and ensured that everything will be ok. And it did! All my guest complimented on the flowers, bouquets, and decor saying how beautiful and elegant they were. Kimberly made me love flowers even more! You will not be disappointed working with Kimberly.
I got married a couple months ago and now am beginning to reflect on all the “what ifs.” But there’s one thing I have zero regrets about and that was choosing Kimberly as our bouquet florist. I got married at the tail end of the holiday season so It was extremely difficult to find a florist. Shops were either closed or required minimum purchases. I almost gave up but happened to come across Bings Design. I’m so glad I did. I described my general “vision” to Kimberly and she basically spelled out exactly what I had in mind. And then the quote she gave me was totally reasonable. She was right on time on our wedding day and made sure to stick around to wish me well. I was so nervous and feeling awkward/ self conscious in my dress but once Kimberly handed me my bouquet, I finally felt like a bride. EVERYONE LOVED THE BOUQUETS and asked how I got such beautiful flowers in January. Thank you so much, Kimberly! Your bouquets were perfect and brought everything together. Brides, call Kimberly right now!
Kimberly did my hair make-up and all of my flowers for my wedding. Her work was beyond anything I could have hoped for! She’s amazing! Loved working with her. She made the whole process seamless. Make-up, hair and flowers were spectacular! Beautiful! There are not enough adjectives for her work. Going with Kimberly for your wedding will leave you stress free with the knowledge that you made the best choice.
Kimberly not only knows her stuff, but she makes it her business to learn whatever she needs to, and quickly! She’s as kind as she is lovely (her website photos don’t do her justice), and offers to share her knowledge with all who need it. These traits and talents not only come into play in her exceptional wedding planning and execution, but in all areas of her life as well. I feel fortunate to have met her!
Kim did a great job providing both hair and makeup and floral services for my wedding. She is professional, responsive, friendly, and very attentive to detail. She was very patient with all my requests, worked within my budget, and really took the time to listen to what I wanted and make it come to life. My wedding party and I were very happy with our hair and makeup, and the flowers looked absolutely GORGEOUS! Highly recommended!
I absolutely loved working with her. She took notes on everything I said and wanted for my wedding. She made suggestions based on what I wanted and my style, not trying to push for the highest prices. That was very refreshing, compared to other florists I had met. Somehow, she was able to take what I said, and made it reality. All the arrangements were gorgeous. My bouquet went perfect with my dress. She also stuck to the budget we had set for the flowers. Overall, it was a great experience. I highly recommend Bings Design.
Kimberly was fabulous! She listened to what I wanted for our flowers in the wedding, and made suggestions according to what I wanted instead of pushing like other florists do. She also made sure we stayed within our budget. The arrangements were gorgeous, exactly how I had envisioned them. I don’t know how she figured out how to get the image in my head into reality, and she was great at it. Super easy to work with, and very quick responses. Thank you very much, I highly recommend her flower service.
Kimberly was absolutely wonderful to work with. We hired her for makeup and flowers for our wedding and I received so many compliments on both!! She was also very professional, always quick to respond to my emails and endless questions. She was always ready to offer help in any way she can which was exactly what every stressed out bride to be needs. Her pricing is very reasonable and you won’t be disappointed by her work.
Kimberly did my hair and make-up for my wedding in July, I had a trial done in April and immediately knew that I wanted her for my wedding day. She asked for samples of hair styles and make up and did exactly that for the trial.On my wedding day she arrived on time and super prepared. She has an assistant come with her and they did my moms hair and make-up as well. My mom is not a make up person but I wanted to treat her for my wedding day and she looked great thanks to Kimberly and her assistant. I loved my make-up and hair and the fact that I still looked like me and not somebody else. And wow do fake eyelashes look great! I was hesitant about pricing for makeup and hair but I found Bings Design to be very affordable compared to others I looked up and went with the half day option which was perfect since I needed to be ready by noon. It was completely worth it!Thank you Kimberly for making me feel beautiful on my wedding day!
Kimberly did the flowers for our wedding in June, and she did an amazing job. She was able to bring to life exactly what I had visualized and requested for our big day. Our wedding was outdoors, and she designed a beautiful hanging arrangement with crystals to go on the canopy, as well as aisle arrangements that were pretty. The bridal bouquet was romantic with exactly the colors and types of flowers I wanted. Kimberly loaned us some of her own accessories for the table arrangements that fit perfectly and brought the whole theme together. The bridesmaids bouquets were complementary to my bouquet and it all came together nicely. Kimberly was professional every step of the way. I wish I had hired her to do our hair and makeup too!
Kimberly is truly the best!! Kimberly did my hair and makeup and all the flowers for our wedding last month and words can’t say how wonderful she is. We planned our CA wedding from the East Coast and were only able to make one trip out for planning so everything else had to be done over email and phone. Kimberly replied to all of my emails (and there were a LOT) promptly and professionally. When I was worried or stressed she always made me feel better and this was before we had even met!! I think the other truly remarkable thing about Kimberly is that she works very hard to be sure she understands exactly what you want. If you are like me, I bet you can already think of some vague statements you have made about what you want “rustic, casual elegance” etc. etc. and Kimberly will reply with questions to clarify what you really mean, which really helps you to clarify what you want too and make sure you get it. Kimberly also helps you work within your budget and is very upfront about costs and how changes you are considering would affect your final cost.We flew out to CA for my hair and makeup trial about one month before our wedding and meeting Kimberly was even better than expected. She is just great. Someone you want to have around making you feel calm and beautiful on your wedding day! I loved my hair and makeup on the trial day and loved it even more on the day of the wedding! I asked for a few small changes to what had been done in the trial for makeup and Kimberly executed them perfectly.The flowers: The flowers that Kimberly put together for our receptions and the bridal party were incredible!! The room was so beautiful - it was exactly what I had imagined. I wanted a lot of color (oranges, purples and yellows) and something that kind of looked casual and rustic, but still impressive. Kimberly did this perfectly. I also wanted a colorful bouquet with a more free flowing shape and it was just gorgeous. Exactly what I had envisioned. I also have to mention the corsage that Kimberly did for my Mom - it was like nothing I have ever seen. My Mom wanted something very non-traditional, kind of a modern art look instead of traditional flowers on the arm and the corsage that Kimberly made was amazing. It was mostly greens/small flowers and a few larger flowers, but was still super feminine without being so floral. My Mom LOVED it and so did I. For us Kimberly truly went above and beyond. In addition to hair, makeup and flowers she did our favors, which she cleverly made into place cards as well. It was so great having her help with all the aspects of our wedding. I can’t imagine that any other florist would help with all of the details that Kimberly thought about. And on top of all this Kimberly is SO EASY TO WORK WITH! She was very responsive to “my vision” of the day and made it happen. She is truly a gem.
Kimberly and her team did an amazing job on the flowers for my wedding! At our first meeting I showed her pictures of flowers I liked and explained my vision which she got dead on. The flowers were so beautiful, they completely exceeded my expectations!! I am so thankful to Kimberly for her role in making my wedding decor even more gorgeous then I could have imagined. Besides being a great florist, her prices were very reasonable and her team was on time and professional. Also, she went above and beyond by finding the exact type of vases I wanted and went out and bought them (instead using any generic rentals)!
Kimberly did an amazing job for my make-up and hair! She was very fun to work with, very detail-oriented and professional! She listened to what I wanted very patiently - I am a very picky person about hair and she always made changes I requested with a SMILE and did it beautifully to create the exact look I wanted. You can tell when someone really enjoys what she does. Kimberly is a talented florist too which I didn’t find out until I met her and saw her mock up arrangement for another bride. They look beautiful! You cannot not have Kimberly as part of your wedding planning and would not regret if you are able to book her for your wedding. Contact her and you will know what I mean! Thank you so much Kimberly!
Kimberly did a great job on my wedding makeup and hairs! I really love her design and work. On the other hand, she is very nice to talk to. I really appreciate the time with her.
If there was 6 stars, I would give Kimberly 6 stars. Not only is her work amazing but her service is incomparable. She stayed two hours longer than schedule on my wedding day because of a major accident at the suite of the hotel that I stayed at for preparation. Kimberly stayed calm and supportive when we were stuck in the room where water from the sprinkler was flooding it for at least 30 minutes.At my wedding reception, I received many compliments. I am so glad I chose her to be my make-up artist.
I don’t know what to say, BUT Kimberly is truly amazing for her many talents in hair, makeup and floral designs!!! When my friend recommended me to hire Kimberly, I checked out her website and I fell in love with her floral and hair designs. She knows what she is doing and provides you with good suggestions and advice about flowers on the day of the wedding. She is very patient and dedicates her time with her clients, making sure that her clients are happy. =) She is very nice, kind, easy-going, patient, understanding, and very accommodating to your needs. She made my wedding day a fairytale one. She did a great job on my hair and makeup, especially my makeup because it held on for the entire day from morning until night, and a lot of my girlfriends complimented on it. Out of three makeup artists I had gone through, Kimberly was my favorite one. If I had chosen somebody else, my makeup would have cracked because she understands my skin sensitivity to makeup, and she knew what to do. As far as makeup and hair goes, she did a wonderful job on our floral arrangements. It had a very elegant feel to our Beauty and the Beast theme, and everything worked out in the end. The wedding felt magical. =) Thanks Kimberly for making our wedding feel special! =D I would most definitely hire her again.
It was wonderful working with this team. Kimberly is very responsive and was able to pull off some of my very last minute request. The flowers were beautiful and my makeup and hair were great too.
Kimberly did hair and makeup for my friend’s wedding where I was the maid of honor. She was so great to work with. From the start she was flexible and accommodating to our schedule. The bride and I probably changed our trial time 5 times on Kimberly, and eventually did it late one evening after work.Kimberly is such a fun person and yet very professional, she made the whole experience fun and not stressful at all. However, the best part is really the job she did with the makeup. The entire wedding party looked absolutely stunning by the time she was done!After doing some research, I found she does flowers too. If I ever get married, I’m calling you to do the whole package, Kimberly ;)BTW, everyone should checkout her FB page (facebook.com/BingsDesign), there are some mind-blowing before/after pictures of her makeup jobs!!!
Kim is outstanding and is probably the most detailed person I’ve ever worked with. I consider myself very detailed but Kim went above and beyond.Kim will reach out to you before you reach out to her. She is attentive and accommodating. Don’t be thrown off by Kim’s suggestions, she knows what she is talking about.I did my research and Kim had stellar reviews so i put my faith in her. Just based on her responsiveness I could tell that if there was an issue, she would make sure it was taken care of and resolved.I asked her to package hair, makeup, and florals together and she was able to. My schedule for the day of was extremely tight and like most weddings, there were fires I had to put out from my hotel room. Kim just kept things moving along.Kim had the flowers beautifully done and ready to use. I was worried that they would wilt, but the quality of the flowers were so good that everything held up during makeup, ceremony, and reception.The centerpieces for our reception were gorgeous. I do have to admit, Kim made a suggestion and I didn’t listen (candle LED lights and votives) but I should have. My suggestion is LISTEN to this woman! She knows what she is talking about.The bridesmaids and my makeup were flawless. My eyes popped and the rest of my face was very natural. Airbrush is the way to go and it lasted all night.I can’t tell you how happy I am that I booked Kim. She worked very hard until the last minute. She was responsive, detailed, and managed to make everything beautiful. She is a talented floral and makeup artist, a rare find.
I hired bing as my make up artist since I am going to be my best friend bridesmaid in the past November . Bings did a great job on my make up , she is very detail and organized , unlike some other make up artist , Bings ensure that you look great and satisfy before the ceremony started. I highly recommend Bings to everyone because her magic hand will make you look great on your big day with no regrets . Also, I look forward to work with Bings for future events !
Kimberly from Bings Design created the floral arrangements for our wedding in September 2013. My wife and I were thrilled with her work, and we would definitely recommend her to anyone looking for a wedding florist. Kimberly was extremely helpful in offering suggestions and advice when we met with her to discuss planning the arrangements, and was a true professional throughout the entire process. She showed us several example photos to help us decide on the floral selection, and on the day of the wedding all of the arrangements turned out gorgeous (especially the amazing centerpiece)! Kimberly was also able to tailor the floral arrangements to accommodate our special requests and budget. Overall I would strongly recommend Bings Design as a phenomenal wedding florist!
Kim and her assistant did a great job for my wedding! Kim did my hair and make up and my maid of honor’s. Her assistant, did my other 3 ladies. The make up and hair were flawless and stayed the whole night. It was a pretty hot day and I was kind of worried that the make up will melt or smear, but it didn’t. It lasted throughout the night and I am very pleased about it. Kim is very professional and friendly! Thanks for a great experience!
Kimberly and her assistant did a great job on our hair and makeup. I even cried on my wedding reception and my eye makeup/mascara did not smear all over my eyes and face. She arrived on time and even finished early before the event. You won’t be disappointed!
Kim did my hair and make up for a holiday party a while ago. Everyone said I looked amazingly gorgeous on that day. I have never gotten so many compliments on one day. Her service worth every penny. I am looking forward to working with Kim for my next event.
Kim is great! She did my hair and make up and also my bridesmaid’s. She is also very friendly and flexible. Thanks a lot for everything!
I hired Kimberly for my wedding back in June 2013 for the following: bride and bridesmaids bouquets, bridal makeup, and bridesmaids makeup AND hair. I went to Kimberly’s place for a makeup trial and she was very easy to talk to and asks a lot of questions about what you like. She takes before and after shots and the makeup looks so great in pictures! We also went over flower bouquets at this time. She arrived at my place the morning of my wedding with two assistants. I absolutely loved the bouquets! They were exactly spot on what I had envisioned! I’m giving her 4 stars instead of 5 because my bridesmaids weren’t too thrilled with her assistants’ work on their hair. Tip to future brides: make sure you know who will be doing bridesmaids hair/makeup ahead of time if you have a big group or semi-big group of girls. I hadn’t given this much thought since I had only met Kimberly and it was only for makeup. But, Kimberly stepped in right away to help them out and made some girls’ hair look way better, especially one that wanted a braid. Overall, I think Kimberly is very talented in all she does! Just make sure to ask about or get trials with assistants if they will be involved.
Talk about multi-talented. Kimberly not only did the flowers for our ceremony and reception (including the centerpiece), she did the hair and make up for the bride and two of the bridesmaids.Kimberly is an extremely hard working professional and is fully dedicated to what she loves to do. Her floral arrangements are very nice, exactly what we wanted it. She spends the time to get to know the couple and is there to guide us with suggestions when we couldn’t decide.Take a look at her website, you’ll love what Kimberly will do for your wedding or special events; we did.
Kimberly is very professional and she is such a sweet girl. She has been so patience working on my first trial. I felt kinda embarrassed to keep her so long on that day, but she was the one who told me we need to find out what I really like for my own wedding. We have spent so much time on which fake lashes are right for me. I’m so appreciated what she did. I’m looking forward to seeing her on my second trial. I’m glad that I chose her as my wedding make-up artist!!!! I will definitely recommend Kimberly to my bride-to-be frds.
Kimberly is such a wonderful and sweet professional! She’s very friendly and willing to talk to anybody to make them feel comfortable. I refer Kim to one of my brides for makeup and hair! oh my! Awesome work! She’s not just elevated the beauty of the bride but also added that elegant touch to her work! I would definitely refer her to anyone for any occasions! -Celia
The best make up artist! so calm, professional and the make up is stunning. i danced so hard and all sweaty but you know what- the make up still stay strong and beautiful! the hair style is the same as before i dance.what a professional make up artist with friendly manner and make you smile. i would highly recommend Bings Design for any event! affordable price as well.
LOVED working with Kim. She was able to do some beautiful arrangements on short notice. Worked well with my schedule, was prompt and executed everything perfectly! Highly recommend Bings Design.
Kimberly was so much fun to work with and did an awesome job with my makeup & hair. I was introduced to her thru Pure Devotion, and we did a trial about 2 months before the wedding. After that, I didn’t even have to look around for another artist or do another trial. Kimberly was detail-oriented and very attentive to what I wanted (which wasn’t very useful, b/c I wasn’t well-prepared and didn’t really know what I wanted). But she was very helpful and suggested different styles and had me try on a few different looks. The trial lasted about 4 hours, but she was really patient. Even after the trial, Kimberly emailed me with suggestions for what else might look good. She even offered to do a 2nd trial to make me feel more comfortable, but we didn’t have time. I didn’t have to anyway, because on the wedding day, the makeup & hair she did turned out beautifully. I received a lot of compliments, and even though it was boiling hot, the makeup stayed put. She used quality products and made my face look natural but flawless.Because our ceremony & banquet spanned from morning until night, Kimberly stayed with us the whole day and did touch-ups & hairstyle changes. She chatted with me during the prep time and made the process quite enjoyable.Apparently Kimberly’s passion is in floral arrangements, which I’m sure she would be great at as well. She has impeccable taste and is very meticulous. I would recommend her to anyone for events/weddings!
Wow. Kimberly is an amazing makeup artist! She is a perfectionist who really listens to what you want. She did my makeup for a wedding and the reactions were great. I was called gorgeous, stunning, supermodel, princess, “the most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen”! I felt so good that I think my inner glow sparked up to an all time high and made me look even more beautiful. If you want to guarantee an amazing makeup application, then Bings Design is the one. You CANNOT go wrong.
I met Kimberly at a recent wedding, where she did makeup (and helped with the florals) and I second shot for the photographer. She is such a sweet gal, and the makeup she did for the bride was amazing. She definitely listened to exactly what the bride wanted (at least from what I could hear/see!), and I loved that she kept the bride’s makeup very natural, as the bride requested. She stayed with the bride the entire day, making sure the bride could get touch ups and look perfect throughout the day.As a fellow vendor, she was great to work with. Considering that I’m quite new to the wedding industry, I was pleasantly surprised by how kind and patient she was with me.
Kimberly did the hair and makeup for my wife in our wedding and my wife was extremely happy with the results.A couple of months ago, a co-worker saw our wedding album and was so impressed she asked for a referral for her own wedding which recently took place. Kimberly ended up doing hair/makeup and the floral for that wedding. My co-worker was so happy with the results she promised me 1 month of free frozen yogurt for my great referral!Thanks Kimberly!
Kimberly did amazing floral arrangement for my wedding. She was attentive and cared about her client’s needs. We met before my wedding where she solicited my input for the floral arrangement. I am very impressed with her work!! She truly has artistic talent!
kim did a fantastic job for my wedding 7/7/2012 for the bridal makeup. it made me be the most beautiful bride in the world. i dont do makeup that much so i like a very natural makeup. Kim focuses on everyone’s concern and makes a very natural makeup for me. She pays a lot attention on all details to do makeup and make sure you have perfect face.and Kim is also amazing with designing center piece. she made a very special center piece for me within my limited budget to make my big date unforgettalbe.
Kimberly is amazing!!!I met Kimberly from her previous work, and found out she also does hair and makeup. I was in the middle of my wedding planning and since Kimberly was so professional at what she did, I thought she might also be professional at her hair and makeup job. I contacted Kimberly and we decided to do a trial run.I am an all natural person and I don’t normally wear makeup or use any hair product. I told Kimberly I want a more natural look for my wedding and I don’t want to look like a completely different person. Before the trial run, Kimberly asked me to email her references of makeup looks and hairstyles I liked. When I met her at the trial run, she did exactly what I was looking for; glamour yet natural. I was totally happy with my wedding looks.On the day of the wedding, Kimberly did her magic and everyone told me I looked studding!!! Kimberly is familiar with Asian features, and she definitely knows how to enhance my good features and cover up the flaws. My wedding pictures turns out perfect, thanks to my photographer (Wilson Lee Weddings - San Francisco), but it was Kimberly that made my face looks flawless. Thanks Kimberly~Kimberly is truly passionate in what she does. I know I made the best decision to have her as my makeup artist and my hair stylist. My hubby and I were scheduled to take the “trash the dress” picture the day after the wedding but we had to reschedule due to the weather. I look forward to having Kimberly do my hair and makeup again for the “trash the dress” photo session in May.
