It’s Spotlight Day! Where we introduce you to incredible Orlando wedding venues and vendors, and the stories behind their companies who help Wedding Venue Map couples have their best wedding day.
It gives us great pleasure to introduce Ana Rivera of Beauté Specialé.
When people ask “what do you do”, how do you answer?
We are a licensed mobile hair, makeup, and spray tan company that does services for weddings, special events, television, movies, magazines, promo ads, etc.
When and how did you get into the wedding industry?
I got into this wedding industry almost 27 years ago when the company I was working with, the Walt Disney Company, started to offer Disney weddings on their properties. Before the wedding chapel was built. They were ahead of their time in those days and were leaders in establishing weddings in Orlando.
What is your favorite thing about what you do? What’s your WHY?
My favorite part of working in this industry is all the lovely people we get to meet and connect with. Hair and makeup is such an important role in a bride’s day, we set the tone for the rest of the wedding professionals they will see through the day so it is important to go above and beyond and make their day extra special and make them feel beautiful and confident.
What is the best compliment you have received from your clients?
When they themselves become lifelong repeat clients over the years and refer us to their own family members and friends for their glam needs.
What is important for clients to know about your company before they book you?
We are licensed and insured professionals. We have many years of experience and are well versed in all ethnicities with skin tones and hair textures. We will go above and beyond to make sure our clients are happy with any service we provide.
What types of events do you specialize in?
We specialize in all events that have to do with hair and makeup. We are a very knowledgeable group of trained professionals that exceeds all of the client’s expectations.
Why do couples hire you?
They hire us because they know they are in good hands and they like the red carpet style of work we provide.
The best piece of advice for brides or grooms.
Do your research on all your vendors. Make sure everyone is licensed in the fields they need to be insured. Don’t be afraid to voice your opinion if something is not to your liking. Stop and take everything in and enjoy every moment. These moments are few and far in between. Make sure you stop for a few minutes on the day of the wedding to take it all in as that day is over before you know it.

Here is what some previous couples had to say…
“Ana and her team of professionals are the best in the business! I have used Beaute Speciale for many special occasions over the years and they have exceeded my expectations each time. They have done my hair & makeup for my own wedding, several weddings I have attended as a bridesmaid and guest, and other fun moments where their services have enhanced my experiences. Each member of the team is highly trained, professional, and will make you feel beautiful! They are true experts in the service they provide.” – -Amy R., The Ritz-Carlton Orlando, Grand Lakes
“Ana and the team did my wedding make-up for me and my bridesmaids and my mom in September. Everything looked so beautiful, the staff was extremely sweet and professional. And it was all done in a very timely manner. I would recommend them to everyone.” – -Mei Ling, Disney’s Wedding Pavilion
“Just had to send over a HUGE thank you to the Beaute Speciale team!! I cannot thank you enough for everything you did for me, my bridesmaids, the flower girl, and our moms that day! Everyone looked so amazing, and I have never felt so beautiful in my life! You truly made me feel and look my best on my wedding day!
I also have to give a shout-out to Ana, who was SO very patient with my niece. She is very nervous about new things and expressed that she was afraid of the curling iron getting too close to her, and you were SO amazingly patient with her, making sure she was doing okay, ensuring her that you wouldn’t hurt her, and checking in with her to see if she needed a break. This truly meant the world to me. I really appreciate it!
You know I will forever recommend you guys, and I thank you SO much for everything you did. You made my wedding day perfect! ❤” – -Danielle, Hyatt Regency Grand Cypress
