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

Words can’t even begin to describe how amazing and talented Joanne is. She is so patient, really listens to what you want, and makes it happen! On the wedding day, I really felt like Joanne was another mother to me. We visited the ceremony setup together to make sure everything was looking good and took a few moments to take everything in. The makeup she did for all of us was beautiful. People couldn’t stop gushing over how happy they were with her work. If you’re thinking of booking Joanne, do it! It’s a no brainer!Sent on 11/20/2018

Look No Further
If you are reading these reviews to decide to hire Joanne, don't look anywhere else! First, I will start with how professional she is, and how amazing she is at what she does. She nailed exactly the look I was going for during the make up trial. But, she doesn't just put the product on your face, she also goes through the process with you and educates you on it. She also made sure my eyebrows were taken care of and any waxing my face also needed the week of the wedding, to help me look my best On the day of my wedding, she really did make me feel my most beautiful self. My family is a little rowdy and she did not falter for even a moment; she just continued to ooze her calming presence and make me feel at ease. Which leads me to other reason you should book with her without even thinking about it. Just being in a room with her makes everything feel better. If you're stressed, or having a rough day, she will make everything melt away. She is such a beautiful person and I honestly can't say enough wonderful things about her.Sent on 10/16/2018
