I honestly can't give enough praise toward Jenna Marie Beauty! From the first email all the way through to my wedding day, the entire experience of working with Jenna was smooth, enjoyable, comforting, and altogether delightful. 😊 She made eve...
rything feel easy and uncomplicated, which was perfect for me being an out-of-state bride.
After our initial email exchange, we had a Zoom meeting, and I honestly wasn't sure how comfortable I'd feel booking a MUA without having a trial. (I've been a bridesmaid many a time, so I def know that not all MUAs are created equal!) By the end of our Zoom call, I had officially booked Jenna for my wedding and was excited to see what we would come up with for my look! She has a professional yet personable demeanor, and she truly cares about her craft as well as making you feel and look your best! (And she uses all cruelty-free makeup - huge plus for me!)
Being out-of-state, she was able to work with my schedule for when I was in the LA area in order to have a makeup trial. Let me tell you, I totally thought I knew what I wanted in terms of my bridal look.... I didn't. And I realized it after we had our trial. Jenna was so patient with me and did her best based off of what I initially said I wanted - I'm not someone who "knows" makeup, so she kinda had to decipher my poorly strung together descriptors! (I'm still so sorry about that, haha!) I ended up scheduling a 2nd trial with her once my sister helped me put into words what I actually wanted. Jenna was so accommodating and again worked with my travel schedule to make the next trial happen. And boy, am I glad that we had that 2nd trial! She freakin' nailed exactly what I had envisioned! (She totally would've done it at the first trial if I knew what I thought I wanted - that's on me, haha!) Jenna never made me feel stupid or like an inconvenience, and she truly wanted to achieve the desired look as well. 💕
After I raved to my now-husband about Jenna, he asked if he could be added onto the wedding day grooming schedule with her so he could have his hair styled and be pampered a little, too. I sent Jenna an email inquiring about it, and she easily added his service onto the lineup. All together, she was going to do makeup for me, my sister, my mom, my MIL, and my SIL, and then the male grooming for my husband.
Jenna also offered to put together the grooming schedule for the day-of. She was in communication with the hairstylist I had booked and she put together a schedule for everyone. (It was SOOO nice having her spearhead that!)
Unfortunately, I ended up getting a call the day before the wedding - Jenna tested positive for Covid that morning, so she obviously wouldn't be able to be there the next day. But before I could get super bummed/freaked out, she told me that she already scheduled another member of her team (Sara) to be there to take care of us. Despite the circumstances, I completely trusted Jenna - she made me feel I was always in good hands and she still took care of me. And she was right - Sara was fantastic! She was early, organized, and accurately re-created Jenna's look. She worked confidently and was a true pleasure to be around. We all loved her!
All in all, I'm so thrilled that I went with Jenna Marie Beauty. Not only did I feel like I booked a wonderful company, I feel like I made a new, wonderful friend! 🤗 If you've read this far, don't hesitate a moment longer - reach out to Jenna and book her for your special day/event now!
