Melissa was beyond great to work with! She captured my desired makeup look: flawless, breathable, long-wearing & not overdone. A dedicated professional and a pleasure to work with. I continue to tell people that I come across in their wedding planning stages to choose their photographer and makeup/hair stylist wisely. Why? Mainly since you will be spending the majority of your wedding day with both so their personality and service add to the atmosphere of the day. Melissa was a calm presence in the bustle of getting ready. A part of the lovely memories of our day!Sent on 05/13/2017

Using Melissa for my hair and makeup on my wedding day was one of the best decisions I made for my wedding day. She was incredible. Not only did my makeup look natural and flawless, my hair stayed all night, and Melissa was a joy to work with. She was incredibly calming on what is inevitably a stressful and emotionally-charged day.Sent on 07/04/2014
I had Melissa stay through my ceremony. During photos, she helped adjust my makeup, veil and hair so that it looked amazing in every picture. She also touched up my bridesmaids. And after the ceremony, which I cried through, she did some major touch ups so that I would look perfect for my party.
I highly recommend Melissa!! She is the best!

As a bride who never had makeup or hair done for an event before, I was nervous but Melissa is a wizard and the results during the trial were stunning, so I completely relaxed. When the big day came, Melissa did an AMAZING job on my makeup and hair -- and I was so very glad I asked her to do my mom's makeup and hair, too. We've really never looked better! I never planned on wearing much makeup, and the look she put together was PERFECT for me. Also, I felt like a goddess with the updo she created. So many people commented on my hair an makeup. Her work is amazing and as the bride, I can say that I felt completely pampered and beautiful the morning of my wedding day.Sent on 01/14/2014
