A passion for wedding and event styling has always been at the forefront for the lifestyle brand of Shannon Michael Style. As for the reason she was inspired to enter the bridal industry, Shannon Michael loves being a part of “that one day that we as women get to feel like a princess." Her creative endeavors extend into many aspects of a bride’s big day.
As a makeup artist, Michael describes her style as “flawless, natural glam”. Shannon Michael Cosmetics was founded after years of working with photographers and discovering a common issue with bridal makeup to resolve. One of the main issues with makeup on a wedding day is that most foundations have SPF in them, causing reflections or “makeup lines” to appear in photographs. After searching for and experimenting with many potential solutions, Michael created her own line that did not contain SPF. The results are photographs that look flawless and timeless.
Design and artistry run in Shannon Michael’s family, and she has always been known to have an eye for high style, making it no surprise that her business would evolve to include a couture bridal gown line. Michael has always found herself enchanted by wedding dresses and envisioning designs of her own. Shannon Michael Couture launched in 2019. Understanding the needs, comfort level, and various sizing of each bride, her line of gowns are uniquely custom-sized so every woman of every shape, size, ethnicity, and age can feel beautiful on her wedding day. This also allows for customers to have a refreshingly modern online shopping experience. Her desire is that every person who wears one of her designs will feel truly glamorous.
With the stunning experience of doing hair and makeup professionally since 1998, Shannon Michael stands out as one of Ohio’s highly sought-after bridal stylists. Her past experiences in modeling and other creative endeavors led her to start her own salon in 2008. This is when Shannon fell into the beautiful bridal world. Shannon Michael values her background, including her family’s artistic history. One grandmother is a dollmaker, while the other grandparents were jewelers. Her mother is a designer herself for a watersport company. She is also inspired by other women in her life, including by every new bridal client and the unique opportunities that arise with their special wedding day. Her mission is to have each bride look and feel her true glamorous self.
In 2013, she completed a wardrobe styling course with celebrity stylist Jill Marinelli. Her dedication to her craft has resulted in her current position of styling over 300 wedding to date. Currently, Shannon is excited to bring a new, modern way of bridal shopping to the wedding industry with her online collection of wedding gowns.
