I don't even know where to begin! Joanne is simply amazing. Joanne was one of the first vendors I booked for my wedding. From the very beginning when I contacted her, I knew it would be the right fit. She was enthusiastic about my wedding from the start. She is very organized and detailed. She provided me with a packet of information with rates and all of the information I needed to know about her services. I saw Joanne several times for facials before my wedding, so we got to know each other well. She is so attentive and genuine, not to mention TALENTED. For my make-up trial, both my mom and sister came with me. They each had their make-up trial, too, and they were floored by Joanne's expertise and service. My mom still talks about this day and says it is the most beautiful she has ever felt! The day of my wedding, Joanne kept everyone calm and collected. She was SO patient with everyone and made all 7 of my bridesmaids and 3 mothers feel and look incredible. Joanne makes you feel like family. If you are thinking about booking with Joanne, do NOT even think twice about this. She is absolutely incredible and a JOY to work with. You will not regret it!! Love, MeganSent on 09/18/2018

Joanne is the best. Period.
Joanne is amazing, so if she is free on your date, stop looking and hire her now. She was wonderful to work with at every step in the planning process, from an initial phone call to my makeup trial to the wedding day, where she came to the venue and not only did my makeup but also did makeup for my bridal party, my mom, and a member of the groom's party. I don't wear much makeup, and I wanted to look and feel my best on my wedding day, but wasn't sure what that might entail. Joanne has such an thoughtful presence-- she will listen to what you think, make suggestions based on her wealth of experience and knowledge, and give you honest answers. I was thrilled with how I looked and felt, and my makeup stayed fresh all night, even with being outside and dancing.Sent on 08/11/2019
My vision for the bridal party was for everyone's makeup to have them feeling confident and all around awesome, whatever that meant to them! Folks in my party have varied personal styles and come from different racial/ethnic backgrounds, so it was really important to me that anyone who worked with us would 1) have experience working with women of color, which not all New England-area makeup artists do, and 2) be committed to collaborating with each person to help them realize what they envisioned. Joanne took the time to get to know each member of my party and understand (and help them understand) what they wanted. Everyone felt affirmed and gorgeous and had a total blast working with her. Quote from one bridesmaid: "She is an absolute gem."
I also have to mention Joanne's organization. She made a schedule in concert with our hair stylist (shameless plug for Lena of Hair That Moves-- hire her too!), our photographer, and our planner, and she helped make sure we stayed on time all day. This is no small feat with a party of 8 people who all like each other and get distracted (myself included), and it was great to have one less thing to keep track of as a bride.
Some of the best parts of a big event are when you're getting ready, and Joanne was such a wonderful person to have around in the midst of the anticipation and lead-up. All my family/friends loved her, and I hope I have another reason to get my makeup done in the future so I can hire her all over again. Thank you, Joanne!

Joanne is the BEST!
Joanne is not only amazing at her craft, but she's also a truly wonderful person and an absolute joy to work with. I can't recommend her highly enough! I don't use much makeup day-to-day, but she made me feel comfortable from the very beginning. She helped me craft an amazing look, and I truly felt the part of a beautiful bride on my wedding day. Not only this, but the moms and bridemaids loved working with her as well!Sent on 08/14/2019
I was planning my wedding from afar, and I also can't thank her enough for being so responsive to my emails, texts and calls. She is incredibly efficient and accommodating, lightening the load of the wedding planning process.
Joanne is the answer to all your wedding day makeup needs!
