love notes

I was anxious about my wedding hair and makeup because I hadn't had great experiences in the past, but was impressed with the photos in Sara's portfolio on her website so ended up hiring her. She and her team far exceeded my expectations on my big day - not only did they do an AMAZING job with my hair and makeup, but all of my bridesmaids looked beautiful as well. Sara was also just a fun, calming presence while we were all getting ready. Highly recommend!

Sara and her team were prompt on time and got me and 7 other ladies ready for my wedding. From the wedding hair/make up trial to the day of the wedding, Sara listened to all my needs and fulfilled them until I was completely satisfied. I was very pleased with the final look and it also looked great in the wedding photos!

Where to start! I hired Sara for my bridal hair/makeup and a service to blow dry and style my grooms hair. I can't thank Sara enough for capturing everything I wanted, the whole process was very smooth and on initial contact she was very prompt with providing all the information needed.  Payment was smooth, I used the Venmo option. On the day of we added one more service and I'm thankful she was able to help us out because it was my grandmothers birthday. Overall I'm very satisfied with the services provided and I'm very happy that she tried to calm me down with a minor situation I was having lol. Again a big thank you to Sara!!!!!!!!! 10's all around!
