    Amy was AMAZING for my wedding! My bridesmaids and I all looked flawless! She arrived early in the morning since there were 10 of us and started right away. Most of the girls in my wedding were not heavy makeup wearers, but she kept it natural while still beautiful. Thank you Amy for making us all look so wonderful. I felt so beautiful and will look at my wedding pictures forever!

    I cannot rave enough about Amy. She is amazing!! She did makeup for my whole bridal party, my mom, and me. My bridesmaids looked awesome and several of my guests thought that I was wearing colored contacts to make my eyes bluer! I felt totally at ease every time I talked to her and trusted her completely. I ended up changing my look from what was done at my trial and Amy handled it like a champ. She responded immediately to my emails and provided excellent service! Thank you Amy!!!

    Amy is well established and came highly recommended. It was an honor to have her be apart of my big day. She has a natural ability to glance at you and know exactly what colors and techniques are going to make you look and feel like a celebrity. I've never felt more beautiful in my life. Not only is she insanely talented, she is beyond pleasant, professional and provides impeccable customer service. I can't say enough amazing things about her!

    Amy was amazing!!! I loved the way I looked. It was perfect, she was great to work with and all my girls looked amazing. She took care of my makeup for the night before for my bridal luncheon and for the rehearsal dinner that night and my makeup was flawless and natural looking all day and night. Day of the wedding, she was incredible. She really is beyond fabulous. I told her I can’t wait to take one of her make up classes so I can look this good all the time and learn the tricks of the trade. She spends a lot learning the new techniques and using all the make-up out there and learning what is the best, thus, she uses great quality make up. The pictures on her website speak for themselves. She truly is an artist. All my girls loved their makeup, they are still talking about how good they all looked. Couldn’t be happier, if she lived closer, I would use her every time I had an event or a date with my husband.

    Thanks Amy!!

    Amy was able to achieve beautiful, natural looking styles for every lady in my wedding party, including my last-minute add-on mother. (That's a total of 7!) While she worked quickly and diligently, she never sacrificed quality. She was great company and remained patient with every girl--making sure to meet their individual needs (lashes, winged eyeliner, lighter lipstick, etc.) Her professionalism is truly unmatched and her prices are well below her worth! (She even gave me a deal since I paid for the whole bridal party as a gift.) I would easily recommend Amy to any friend or acquaintance. If you want a flawless wedding look that doesn't break the bank, call Amy!

    Amy is a true artist. Before the "big day" Amy and I had a one on one session at her residence where she was able to summon her creative magic and tailor contouring and colors to really enhance my natural features like the color of my eyes, hair, and skin tone. This one on one session really helped prepare both of us for my wedding day. When the day finally arrived, I wasn't worried about how I would look because I had my full trust in Amy. She gave plenty of time and paid great attention to detail when working her creative genius on my bridesmaids. They could not stop gushing on how perfect their makeup looked. I didn't have a set "look" for all my bridesmaids, I really let Amy take her artistry to enhance their beauty. I would totally recommend Amy to future brides because she is extremely responsive to emails, text, phones calls etc. and is willing to work with your schedule. She is a professional and seeks to form a personal connection with you the client to receive the full benefits of her services.

    I booked Amy Kennison and Jamie Warzel for hair and makeup services for my bridal portrait and wedding day for my entire wedding party. They did an amazing job! They were very professional and accommodating. I have never felt more beautiful in my life! I had never had my makeup professionally done before, and I don't wear makeup on a daily basis, so I really appreciated how Amy asked what I normally do, so I wouldn't look like a completely different person to my fiance on our wedding day. Jamie was so sweet and everyone's hair looks absolutely beautiful! Both their services are also a great value. I would recommend Amy and Jamie to anyone wanting to look their best at any special event!

    I booked Amy Kennison for makeup services for my wedding day. She is absolutely amazing! Before my wedding day, I had an opportunity to meet with Amy for a trial run, and I knew that I could fully trust what she would be doing for my big day. I wanted something that was classic and natural, and she skillfully achieves whatever style the client is looking for. My sister and I were so thrilled with our makeup and how absolutely beautiful we looked. It was flawless. The makeup lasted all day looked just as incredible at the end of the night. She even came to our get ready location, which was so convenient! I absolutely recommend her for any event, and I look forward to booking her again in the future!

    I cannot say enough wonderful things about Amy! Before I was even engaged, I knew that I had to have her as my MUA for my big day. When I finally got engaged, the VERY FIRST thing I did in the planning process was reach out to her and see which dates she was available in July :) Amy of course got back to me right away with her availability and also referred me to the super talented Jamie Warzel for hair.
    Not only is she an insanely talented MUA, she is truly one of the kindest and most genuine people you will ever meet. She cares about her clients and is a true artist! Amy enhances your natural beauty and will transform you into the best/most beautiful version of yourself! In addition to my makeup, Amy also took care of all of my bridesmaids. To this day, we all still talk about how much we love her and loved our makeup!! All of us agree that we never felt more beautiful and I make certain to recommend her to every bride I meet (or anyone preparing for another special event). Our makeup was stunning and I can never thank her enough! In addition to making sure you book Amy as your MUA right away, I also have another piece of advice...listen to her! :) She is the professional and trust me, she knows what she's doing. She takes everything into account from skin type, allergies, time of year, weather...you name it. Let her work her magic and I promise/guarantee that you will be wowed when you look in the mirror. Thank you Amy! You are amazing and truly helped make my day a dream come true!

    I want to thank Amy from the bottom of my heart for making me feel like a bride! I did a trial run and went very natural which is what I was used to wearing. Amy really listened and gave great suggestions for colors and what would work best for me. On the day of the wedding we went a little bit darker and I absolutely loved the look. Amy is hands down a talented professional and I would recommend her to anyone! I had seven bridesmaids, my mother and mother in law all use her services the day of the wedding. Get lashes we all loved them! Thank you so much Amy for making my day so special! <3

    Amy was WONDERFUL to work with from start to finish. She made the trial so easy as I do not typically wear much make up or know much about it. She listened to every request and made me feel amazing. She worked so well with me and my bridal party and had a very calming presence on the wedding day! She knows her stuff and was able to take in to consideration everyone's needs. I have never felt more beautiful and that is thanks to her!

    Amy is truly the best makeup professional and artist!! I was absolutely amazed at her skill and technique for both my bridal portraits and wedding day. She was very familiar and understanding with a brides hectic schedule and wow'ed any onlooker watching the process. Her technique with eyeliner/shadow/contouring is nothing short of celebrity status. I am so incredibly happy that i had the privilege to have her for my wedding, I have never seen anyone's makeup even come close! thank you so much!

    Amy was amazing and so easy to work with. I met with her for my bridal trial and everyone loved my makeup. I do not usually wear a lot of makeup and she made it look natural. The day of my wedding I liked my makeup even more. It lasted the whole wedding even in the heat. Amy also did my bridesmaids and moms makeup and everyone raved about that. She was so easy to work with and made getting ready fun. Thank you so much for making my day special.

    I was online looking for someone in the Wilmington area that does wedding makeup and I stumbled on Amy's website and I was immediately sold! I contacted her right away to schedule an appointment and she was quick to respond and set something up. She was always so nice, sweet and professional. I ended up knowing a few other girls who used her as well and raved about her. As soon as I saw all of her pictures though I could see the amazing work she creates and how she brings out women's natural beauty and just enhances it. It truly is a gift! I felt so pretty on my wedding day thanks to Amy. Her set up is very pretty and she makes you feel very comfortable too during the whole process. I didn't even have to tell her much of what I wanted because I trusted and knew whatever she did it would turn out beautifully. I would definitely recommend any bride or anyone that is wanting there makeup done for a special event to Amy, she is seriously amazing!

    I felt so honored to have Amy do my wedding makeup! It was one of the things I looked forward to the most because I knew it would be just awesome based on every picture and word of mouth I had encountered. She has a talent for adapting to each person and making them look their best that I can't imagine is easy to do. She made over myself, 5 bridesmaids, and my mother and I must say we all looked fabulous. I believe she deserves to be artist to the stars as she is simply amazing.

    Amy is absolutely amazing. She has so much compassion for makeup and is awesome at what she does. Her kindness and humbleness kept me calm on my wedding day and I trusted her 110% to make everyone beautiful and she exceeded my expectations of makeup beyond what I ever could have imagined. She was so easy to work with and was the least stressful part of planning my big day. Everyone was beautiful and my girls still talk about how amazing Amy was. She made such an impression, two of my bridesmaids contacted her about doing their wedding. Thank you Amy for being so kind, humbled, beautiful, and easy to work with. You made my day a lot less stressful. You are amazing.
