Sarah is amazing!!!

Absolutely fabulous. That's the best way to describe Sarah and her work.

She kept in communication the week of the wedding and made sure she knew the look I wanted. The day of she was not only on time - she was early! And was the sweetest, kindest person. Through the whole process she made sure I was happy with the look and told me if there was anything I wanted changed to let her know - well there wasn't a thing I would change! I have never received so many compliments on my makeup as I did at that wedding! For 7+ hours my hair remained perfect and makeup stayed flawless. An outdoor wedding in the sun and my makeup never budged. My hair was exactly how I wanted it and it stayed perfect all night. I told Sarah to work her magic and she did. She listened to me and gave me the look I wanted while making me feel gorgeous. I could not have asked for more! I would work with her again in a heartbeat and recommend her to anyone. You will not be disappointed.
