    We had the pleasure of working with Jennifer for hair and Makayla for hair and make-up. When the girl who was supposed to do make-up did not show up, Makayla jumped in to do make up and Jennifer added girls to her schedule for hair to help out and make sure we were all ready and looking and feeling beautiful! Jennifer was very patient and creative during the hair trial and both girls were lovely to my bridal party! They were fantastic!

    The Portola Hotel and Spa is a great venue from the location, decor, food and staff. Always friendly and welcoming, their staff is happy to help make your event perfect. I do a number of events at the Portola because of the versatility of their various event spaces, offering a large ballroom for really large groups and even small intimate spaces for small meetings and every size in between.
