Working with FBJ was a highlight of my wedding! I booked them after reading reviews and exchanging a few emails, so I would say I was going in a bit blind. They proved themselves worthy of every positive review on any website -- the entire team is worthy of so much praise! Here's what I loved most: (i) organization -- Joy is ORGANIZED, and is organized early. We had our wedding timeline months in advance; (ii) professionalism -- we had 3 stylists for my wedding, and all of them were well qualified and very good at what they do. Whenever one of the team members wasn't sure, Alicia stepped in and took over. It was very comforting to have someone "in charge" just in case; and (iii) kindness -- there's nothing better on your wedding day than people treating you special. All 3 of the stylists made my wedding party feel and look spectacular! ALSO, do yourself a favor and take advantage of the boudoir photo shoot! They do incredible work! You will only be disappointed if you don't partake!Sent on 09/13/2018

Thank you FBJ!!
I originally signed a contract with another MUA for my wedding, but after Alicia did my hair and makeup for my boudoir photo shoot at Studio Romance (also FBJ) I knew that I needed to use FBJ instead! Joy was so helpful throughout the entire process, and was able to help me book Alicia and Amanda 2 months before my wedding. Alicia and Amanda came to my parents house to do our hair and makeup, showed up early to set up, and got right to work! They did an incredible job on my and my bridesmaids’ hair and makeup. Alicia really listened to what I wanted during my boudoir shoot and my trial to make sure that I was happy with my hair and makeup. Joy is the kindest person and always made me feel so welcome when I came into the studio. My only regret is not booking them sooner! Also, if anyone is on the fence about doing a boudoir shoot with Studio Romance/ FBJ, do it!! I was so nervous about how my photos would turn out, but with Alicia doing my hair and makeup, Joy taking the photos, and Anita telling me how to pose, the photos turned out even better than I had hoped!! Thanks so much FBJ for making one of the aspects of wedding planning I was most stressed about such a breeze :)Sent on 11/21/2018

FBJ styled for my wedding and they were absolutely fantastic. Joy is incredibly friendly, organized, and super quick to answer all questions. They did wedding hair and makeup for 10 women and did a great job on everyone. They were professional, efficient, and great about hearing what you wanted and making it happen for you. We had a large party and had to be ready by a certain time, the stylists were fantastic about getting everyone done in time but also making sure everyone looked great and was happy with their look.
Autumn did my bridal hair and I was totally blown away with it. She did an incredible job and it looked much better than I ever could have imagined. Courtney did my makeup and it was beautiful – she worked closely with me to find out exactly what I wanted but also offered great advice for what would work best for me. Overall I was thrilled with how I was styled for my wedding day.
What I was particularly impressed with was Joy’s “Say Yes” policy. I had a consultation, and I was happy with almost everything, but she noticed I wasn’t super excited about one aspect of it. She brought me back in for a consultation to ensure that I loved every aspect of my bridal styling – I LOVED what they did for me on my second consultation and am so glad that Joy brought me back in. Overall, FBJ did a fantastic job with my wedding!
Wonderful and very professional team!
It was AWESOME working with Studio FBJ in April of 2015 AND July 2018 at the Mill at Fine Creek! The girls were so sweet to us and made all the bridesmaids and the bride look incredible!! Loved working with y'all!
superior service second to none! You can't go wrong when you want to look your best for one of the most special days of you life!
