    Professional, Personalized, & Thorough!

    Like many others, we ended up having to change all of our original wedding plans and ended up going with a much smaller family event. I first reached out to Crystal less than two weeks before my wedding, and she was nothing but professional from the start. Her process included an initial phone call, questionnaire, highly detailed brochure showing different customized packages, and a timeline for the day. Despite the wedding being so close, Crystal was also able to make time for a trial, and took photos to make sure everything was perfect. She was thorough and organized, and put me at ease immediately. Everything went extremely smoothly the day of the wedding. In addition, she has gone above and beyond to take the necessary measures to keep her clients safe during the pandemic. I would not hesitate to use her services again.

    So amazing despite a ton of curveballs

    Crystal was absolutely wonderful. We had to reschedule our wedding twice due to covid, and she worked with us both times. She was also very covid-careful during our big day - which was a huge relief to me, as you get so up close during hair and makeup! I wanted to "look like myself but a more glamorous version of myself" and she TOTALLY hit the mark. She & her team also made my bridesmaids and MIL look and feel amazing too.

    As an added note, due to all those covid delays I was 5 months pregnant when we finally got to the big wedding party, and honestly wasn't feeling the most beautiful leading up to the big day. I just didn't see how I could feel totally beautiful in the way I had always imagined - and am so grateful to Crystal because I totally did every bit as beautiful as I had hoped!

    Crystal is amazing!

    Crystal and her team did an exceptional job with hair and makeup for me and my bridesmaids! It was so nice to not have to worry about getting everyone ready in time, and the end result was absolutely stunning. She puts so much care into her work, which was evident even from the initial consult. It was also so sweet that she provided each of us a little bag of brushes! Crystal stayed with us during photos up until the ceremony, and helped us with touch ups, the dress and veil, and by fixing heels that were slipping through muddy grass. Looking back on pictures from the day, I am just so thankful that we booked Crystal. I cannot recommend her enough!
