d make-up styles and could never find exactly what I was looking for. When I looked in the mirror after they had finished their magic, I finally saw what I wanted! I think the relief I felt at that moment was one of the happiest parts of my day :) During the months leading up to the wedding, Colleen and Angelina were both so accommodating. They gave me a second make up trial free of charge (and Angelina drove all the way to where I was staying!) after I wasn't so sure I liked the first one. They did hair and make-up for my Mom and wedding party and everyone was so happy with how they looked. Some of the bridesmaids had had their make-up professionally done in the past and did not like how it turned out. They were skeptical going in but Angelina won them over with her amazing personality and artistic talent. Colleen and the rest of the crew are just as talented and amazing - everyone's hair looked great (especially mine!). I would absolutely choose Boston Ever After again and I am so happy I found them! I don't know how to thank them other than to recommend them to every bride getting married in the Boston area! If you hire them for your special day, you will not be disappointed!

At my trial, she came up with the perfect up-do on the first try! She was willing to try other things, but we both agreed that what she had designed perfectly matched my dress, venue, and the day.
We had a non-traditional wedding and had no wedding party. However, Colleen still did hair for other individuals including my Mom(short hair), sister, and aunt (our officiant). Everyone looked amazing and loved their hair.
