I feel so lucky to have had Jodie as my makeup and hair artist for my wedding last month. From the moment I received her quick response to my initial inquiry, all the way through the hair trial and on the day of the wedding, her unwaivering professionalism and all around delightful personality continued to reinforce that she was the right choice and she quickly made me feel comfortable and earned my complete trust. Throughout the whole process, she listened to what I wanted and patiently talked me through the things I wasn’t sure about. On the day of my wedding, she was the perfect calming presence I needed when the nerves started to creep in and the stress made my head start to spin. I had no doubt that she would follow through with everything we discussed and she truly went above and beyond expectation. I have never felt more beautiful. She brought an assistant with her (because there were so many of us) and they made each and every one of the ladies in the wedding radiate. They were all so happy with how they looked - even my future mother in law, who, the week prior, had fallen and still had a very bruised face on the day of the wedding. By the time they were done with her, you couldn’t even see it! I would highly recommend Jodie to any bride. She’s truly a cut above.Sent on 10/08/2018

Jodie was absolutely amazing! My wedding planner had recommended her and I couldn't be happier that I chose to work with her. We had so much fun at the trial- I asked her to walk me through step by step what she was doing, so it was like a little makeup lesson. She gave me a list of all the products she used too- in case I wanted to get any after the wedding!Sent on 10/04/2018
Jodie was everything you could wish for on the wedding day- she is warm, calm, and funny. After running around all morning, I sat down with her to start my hair and makeup and instantly felt calm and taken care of! She is exactly the person you want with you on wedding morning!! She brought 2 assistants to help out with the bridesmaids who were so sweet and nice and just as talented as Jodie! I can't recommend Jodie enough!!

Jodie is amazing! I am so happy that I chose her (and that she agreed) to be part of my wedding day beauty team! She and her colleague/assistant, Erin, are very talented and helped to make my bridesmaids and me look our very best on my wedding day. We all LOVED our hairstyles and could not have been happier. (I had already asked someone else to do our make-up so Jodie and Erin did our hair. But I have seen her make-up work at a friend's wedding and it is also gorgeous!) A few of my married bridesmaids said that they liked their hair better for my wedding than they did on their own wedding! In addition to being an amazing artist, Jodie is so sweet and she was a great, calming presence to be around the morning of my wedding. :-) I will be recommending her to all of my engaged friends looking for a beauty professional. Highly recommend!Sent on 08/20/2018
