*Do you come on-site?
Yes, on the wedding day we come on-site. Trial runs take place at our location.
*Can I bring someone to the trial run?
Yes, of course!!!! :)
*When do I schedule my trial run?
Due to the high number of weddings we book, we highly recommend scheduling your trial run as soon as your booking is complete (even if it is necessary to book several months out). This will ensure you can schedule your appointment on a date that is convenient for you.

Deposit can be paid online via Honeybook. Remaining balance can be paid online via Honeybook, cash, or check.

*What brands of makeup do you use?
Our makeup has a reputation for lasting a good 18hrs with only lip gloss touch ups needed (sometimes a light powder IF you are really oily). Our team uses professional, high quality products. You may be familiar with some of the lines we use (MAC, Smashbox, Makeup Forever). We also use some amazing industry products that are used in film/television that you might not be as familiar with such as Face Atelier, Charlotte Tilbury, & Inglot. Have a question about a certain product we are using?? Feel free to ask, we love sharing knowledge about products that we love!
*Do you do airbrush makeup?
I have done airbrush makeup in the past- However I find that with the primers, foundations, & make-up sealer I use- I get the much more precise & beautiful result that is incredibly long lasting.... All the photos in my portfolio are of makeup done this way.
*I’m interested in using hair extensions, do you work with them?
Yes, all the stylists are very familiar & comfortable working with extensions. They are wonderful!! We often use them with our brides- the BEST ones are Euronext Brand @ Sally's beauty supply (they run about $130-$150 depending on the length. I LOVE mine, and wear them ALL the time!!
*Is there a service minimum?
Yes, for Saturday weddings May-October we do have a 5 service minimum
