You booked your venue, photographer, florist and planning is coming along quite well until your wedding planner asks ‘What are your thoughts about hair and makeup?’ If you love all things hair and makeup, then we were probably the next step on your wedding to do list. On the contrary, if you didn’t think about a beauty service vendor because you are busy working professional, we are here to help navigate the process and say, don’t panic!

Maybe you aren’t an everyday makeup wearer but want to feel pampered on your once in a lifetime day. Another possible scenario: you like doing your own hair and makeup but your skills won’t deliver the look you envisioned walking down the aisle. Many clients were in the same stage or thought process that you are in right now. That’s why you are here! You need to feel confident and beautiful in the hair and makeup but equally important you need to trust the team that will set the tone for the rest of your wedding day and cutting corners on hair and makeup won’t get you there. With wedding hair and previews booked in advance to collaborate with us to create your custom hairstyle and makeup vision you will be stress free as we seamlessly recreate your one of a kind look so you can enjoy the wedding day morning with your family and friends. A once in a lifetime day deserves a once in a lifetime team!

Not sure if professional hair and makeup beauty specialists are right for your wedding day ? Unless you are in the fashion/beauty industry you might not realize every picture and advertisement you see on IG and TV almost always have an experienced professional beauty specialist team. You can have the best photographer in the world, and they might make you look pretty good but having professional hair and makeup on location is what separates ‘wedding pictures’ from ‘wedding portraits’ that you see in Vanity Fair. That being said, our work is NOT the crazy transformations on IG and TIK Tok and although some people consider those looks beautiful, we are not going to put a mask on your face or give you a hairstyle that you went to prom with. Jenna and her team of beauty specialist cater to clients who want a ‘Polished’ ‘Elegant’ ‘timeless’ soft natural to soft glam look!

Makeup with Jenna: Jennas makeup aesthetic is polished and timeless. In her own words ” Brides come to me because they want to look like themselves but ‘better’. They don’t want to be unrecognizable to their fiancé when they are walking down the aisle instead the opt to look like the best version of THEM. My personal approach to makeup is less can be more depending on the clients vision, a polished timeless makeup look does not mean LESS makeup it simply means the artistry style will be different”. At the end of the day, clients hire me because I will execute their vision regardless of the whether or not it a soft minimal look or modern soft glam.

To all the new couples, if you are looking for Quality Professional Service, someone who truly listens and able to make you look stunning but still as yourself, also with reasonable pricing, Jenna is the one that your are looking for!!! Mark my words. I found Jenna on the Knot kind on the last minute which was only about one month apart from my wedding day. Jenna replied me right after my initial inquiry with a very professional approach, we met on the second day for detail discussion and I decided right away to have her be a part for my wedding. I don’t usually wear makeups, so I was pretty worried about being put on makeup and don’t look like myself at all. But after checking Jenna’s works, my concerns all went away. She listened carefully to my stories and my ideas, and was able to give me suggestions that matches me and my fiancee perfectly. So, we chose Jenna with no doubt. On the wedding day, Jenna and her partner showed up exactly on the scheduled time. They were fast and did really good job on our makeups and hairs. They made us looked like princesses came from fairy tales. The wedding was so perfect. Everybody loves how our makeups and hair matches our gowns. Even until today, we still feel like living in the dreams! I can’t thank enough to Jenna and her partner’s beautiful work! Thank you so much for making our big day so wonderful.

I worked with Jenna twice this year. First for my engagement photos then for a boudoir session. Both times she was easy to work with and did an excellent job with my makeup! I love my pictures and the fact that my makeup looked so great! I would def recommended her and work with her again! She's also on time and easy to get in contact with if you need something. She's also very professional and takes her work seriously!

I went for a bold, dark look for my big day. Although many told me it was a bad decision, Jenna did not hesitate in supporting my request. She was very friendly and professional. She executed my look beyond my expectations.
