Welcome! It’s Nice to meet you!

I’m Celissa Halley! The girl in red in the middle! I am the owner and mastermind creative behind the chair at Wedding by Celissa Rae. I have always had a passion for the beauty industry and spent most of my childhood in my mom’s salon in San Marcos, Texas. I learned to braid hair before I learned to tie my shoes.

Our team behind Celissa Rae has decades of combined experience. We spend most of our time dedicated solely to our Brides, their friends and loved ones with luxury hair and makeup services. We believe that you deserve the best along with a team of talented, knowledgeable and passionate individuals focused on you.

Our process with our Brides is easy and comfortable. Every girl has her style and we want to bring the natural and beautiful side out. There is no better feeling than walking down the aisle towards the love of your life feeling better than you ever have. Imagine his reaction when he sees you for the first time, eyes glued knowing that you are the most radiant and stunning girl in the world.

You might be having a big wedding with a posse of girls to be by your side or the most intimate event with just your closest friends there to witness your day. No matter the size of the wedding, we know how to work with you. Our relax and fun nature makes the morning of your wedding bubble with smiles and excitement-- and not just from the champagne!

The Celissa Rae offers organic styles, romantic textures and polished makeup looks. You will shine and look your very best for a day that you won't forget.
