The moment I found the Veil of Grace website, I knew my search for the perfect bridal makeup was over. Instantly, I fell in love with the natural yet flawless glow they gave each of their brides. Sarah was such a pleasure to work with from my bridal trial makeup to wedding day makeup. She asked plenty of questions and was eager to create the exact look I wanted. The airbrush makeup made all the difference! Also, I loved the level of communication they had with me during the months coming up to the wedding because it made my wedding day far less stressful. I definitely recommend Veil of Grace to any future bride.
Sam and her team helped to make my wedding amazing! They do awesome work; my bridesmaids and myself felt so beautiful all day. The airbrush feels like there is nothing on your face, yet it didn't budge until I took it off the next afternoon. (That's with all the partying at the reception and I may or may not have jumped in a pool at the end of the night) :) The make-up stayed put and beautiful! They are a super laid back and just all around fun group of girls. It felt like we were all old friends chatting and laughing while we got ready in the cozy little hotel room. I was very pleased and would highly, highly recommend them to anyone and everyone!
Sam and her team are BEYOND AMAZING!!! They recently did the hair & makeup for my wedding, and I can't rave enough about how wonderful they all were. Sam, in particular, did my hair & makeup and it was even better than what I had expected. I did a few trials before Samantha, but no one succeeded at creating the vision I wanted. I don't wear a lot of makeup in general, and Sam was able to transform me in a way that highlighted my features and made my pictures stand out. The best part was that my hair stayed in place and my makeup DID NOT wear off by the end of the night. She's also such a cool and lovely person, so sitting in that chair on your wedding day is a pleasure because she just puts you at ease with her energy and personality. Her team of women were amazing, as well. Two girls worked on about 7 of my bridesmaids and they all shined. I highly recommend Sam...she's a true find!
Bridal hair and makeup was huge for me! I didn't want to look unlike me the day-of so I knew someone who could make me look like a more done up version of myself would be the way to go. That's when I met Makeup Artist, Magz, as they call her. She was undoubtedly outstanding and is the main reason that I went with VOG for my HMU services (& main reason for the 4/5 stars). Between her ability to relate to anyone and be the most kind soul you'll ever meet, she gives you honest feedback and recommends based on your skin tone, eye color, etc. She was so patient with me during my two trials to make sure I got just the right skin shade correctly! Seriously you guys...you will NOT regret hiring her. I felt like she was one of my girlfriends who happened to be AMAZING at makeup. So friendly and easy to get along with. She seriously kept me at ease the day-of. Sydney, the main point of contact for VOG services, was outstanding as well. She handled my indecisiveness well and I was impressed by her passion to understand my vision and just what I was looking for HMU. She quickly responded to my initial inquiry and had several questions and asked for pictures, etc. She even texted me for ease of contacting while I was working/starting a new job! When I asked for a second trial, mostly for my hair, she offered a discount for that. Sydney stayed professional and organized throughout the whole process and even offered to be with me the day-of, if needed. Very friendly! My hair stylist was Kristen. She was a doll and so easy to talk to. I feel bad for anyone who does bridal hair because it must be a nightmare to try to get a bride's vision just right. Kristen came close to what I had pictured, but what I realized over the two trials was that she does hair and does it well, but it still was not the bridal hair I had hoped for. She seemed a bit annoyed during my trial, because makeup was taking longer than anticipated. I did wind up having to touch up my hair several times throughout the evening of the wedding to maintain, but not necessarily her fault...the style I was going with was curled and swept to the side, romantic look, but at the end of the day my hair doesn't hold a curl super well. Overall, I had a very positive experience with VOG and would recommend them again. My suggestion would be to ask Sydney who specializes in the style you're looking for so you're not spending your time, energy and money trying to make it work with the artist that was assigned to you (granted if you get married NYE weekend there may not be many choices :-P). My recommendation to VOG, would be to ask this of your future Brides (what style hair/makeup & then assign artists from there). Also, leave a little lipstick or gloss so your Bride has something to touch up with! Love you ladies!
Veil of Grace was a dream! Sydney was such a pleasure to work with, and made the booking process so easy. Jessica and her team on the day of the wedding were amazing, and made the wedding morning wonderful. I highly recommend Veil of Grace!
These ladies are simply AMAZING! Sydney, the manager, is helpful, responds quickly to emails and is very kind. On our wedding day she even assisted me with other little details! Sarah my makeup artist was stellar! She worked with my problematic skin and allowed my features to shine through on my wedding day. Kristen's braid/hair skills are on point and both ladies' work was beyond my expectations. Above all, my husband was blown away! =) I didn't look like a different person, just a better version of myself. They made my wedding day perfect and unforgettable. I would book them again without hesitation and have recommended them to family and friends!
I have been getting my hair done by Samantha for several years now, so when it came to my wedding I immediately wanted her to do my Hair & Make-up. From the trials to my wedding day, Samantha made me feel and look absolutely incredible! I was beyond pleased with how every detail came out and received several compliments throughout the day. Vanessa and Samantha did all of my bridesmaids hair as well as my Mother and Mother-in-laws make-up and each and every one of them looked and felt gorgeous all day! Booing with Sydney was also an amazing and stress-free experience. I have been a part of several weddings where the hair/make-up was very jumbled and disorganized, Sydney made this entire day very smooth to where everyone knew where they needed to be and when. She was so communicative prior to and helpful on each and every detail. Thank you so much Veil of Grace for being a part of my special day! :)
Veil of Grace was one of the best purchases I made for my wedding. VOG actually came recommended through our photographer (Eric Killingsworth), and I'm so thankful to have been able to book their services on relatively short notice (under 2 months out)! All the girls were so accommodating and patient. Samantha was a relief to work with in the midst of wedding craziness. I had a great makeup trial with Sarah and we were able to lock down my look in one test. I am also SO glad I went with the airbrush finish (worth every penny!). There is no way I would have lasted through our wedding evening without it. I also had a great hair trial with Kristen. She came up with a great up-do that channeled a retro vibe but also allowed me to wear my veil. My bridal party all had beautiful up-dos that were unique to them, but still looked cohesive. Their professionalism, fun personalities, and calm demeanor under a slight time crunch were very much appreciated. I cannot recommend these ladies enough!!
The Best Beauty Squad!! Thank you for making us girls look and feel beautiful on my wedding day!!
Our experience with Veil of Grace was easy. From inquiry to trial to wedding day, everything was arranged quickly, transparently and often online. The artists listened to my concerns at the trial and delivered adjusted results on the wedding day. They were cheerful, on time and made me feel special throughout the hair and makeup session. They also socialized well with the other women in the wedding, and the other artists present. I don't wear a lot of makeup regularly, so having weightless, natural look that lasted all day with no worries was very important to me. The end result was an incredible look that made me feel beautiful all day long. Definitely recommend to other brides!
I cannot say enough great things about Sam and her team at Veil of Grace. They made me and bridesmaids/family look incredible on my big day. I had complete confidence in what Sam was doing since she normally colors/cuts my hair every time I'm down in SoCal. Living in SF, I had to choose all of my vendors remotely, but Sam was highly responsive and communicated everything clearly to me. My trial that I had was super helpful! Choose the airbrush makeup ladies, it's stays on literally all day and night. :) anywho... I highly recommend Sam for your upcoming wedding. She will make you look amazing and flawless
Samantha was absolutely wonderful! She did exactly what I had showed her, but also did the make up according to what would look best on me. She has such a fun personality and you can tell she knows what she is doing, is great at it, and loves it. My wedding day wouldn't have been complete without my beautiful makeup from Samantha.
I can not say enough good things about Samantha and her team. They made my bridesmaids, my mom, and me all feel like princesses on my wedding day. My girls still talk about how great we all looked and people were telling us all night! They were so much fun to have around and get ready with and were so professional. If I changed my mind on something last minute or wanted something changed after it was done they were more than happy to give me exactly what i wanted so it was perfect and were also great in giving their insight and opinions on things. After they finished one bridesmaid they made sure it was exactly what I wanted before moving on to the next. They were all so easy and so much fun to work with. They were sure to get everyone ready and perfect in our tight time schedule and were at the venue before we arrived and were ready to go when we got there. Sam, Jacqueline, Mj and Jessica Janeen, thank you so much for everything. <3
Our experience with Veil of Grace could not have been better. I say "our" because I speak for my bridesmaids, myself, and both mothers. Not only were they professional and talented, they were kind, accommodating, and oh so sweet! We all looked and and felt beautiful and it was truly a lovely experience. Look no further, you've found what you're looking for 💛
Don't waste your time going to anyone else!! Being someone who doesn't wear lots of makeup, I was a little worried but Samantha did such an amazing job making my look bright and natural. I truly felt like a bride and I can't thank Sam and her team enough!!
Literally, the BEST EVER! I have been going to Samantha for years now and I wouldn't trust anyone else but her and her team to do my hair and makeup for my wedding! Sam has always understood my vision and I had worked with her team for previous weddings and saw that they were all consistent and always did a beautiful job. The day of the wedding the team seriously blew me away! Each of my girls looked absolutely stunning, my mom, who had a certain idea in mind and is pretty picky, absolutely loved her look. I cannot even express how beautiful I felt! I am beyond happy with Veil of Grace and they are the only team I would ever refer! I cannot thank Sam and her team enough!
Veil of Grace is seriously the best! I was really apprehensive about hiring a make up artist for my wedding that I have not seen their work in person but I got referred to them by my photographer and I am so glad I went with them! Their girls are so professional and so sweet and make you feel absolutely beautiful on your day! I highly recommend getting a trial done because I ended up changing a lot of what I thought I would want! They are so understanding and actually listen to what you want! Sarah did my make-up and my airbrush was so flawless and lasted through the whole night! Jacqueline did the make up for my bridesmaids and everyone was so pleased!
Veil of Grace made my wedding beauty dreams come true. Sarah, Kerri and MJ was our glam squad for the wedding day. Sarah did an amazing job on my makeup and Kerri perfected my hair into a chignon dream. I also treated my mother and mother in law to hair and makeup. I wanted them to feel like Queens and thats actually what VOG did. Also my picky bridesmaids were happy and looked stunning. Sydney was a pleasure to work with and great at emailing back.
Look no further, Veil of Grace will not disappoint! I had Jessica Steingard, Jessica Janeen and Paulina do our hair & makeup for my wedding in May. They made our "getting ready" experience unforgettable. I felt so at ease and calm during the entire morning, which meant everything to me because I can truly say that I enjoyed my wedding day from start to finish. Because of Veil of Grace, we all looked and felt so beautiful!
Samantha and her team did an amazing job doing the makeup for me and my entire bridal party. They were extremely meticulous and flawless! The airbrush makeup lasted well beyond the projected 8 hours and I would highly recommend Veil of Grace to ANYONE!
Sam did such an amazing job on my bridal makeup! She kept us all well informed, especially since I, nor my mother and sister-in-law, have ever had airbrush makeup done before. She is so talented and did everything we asked for! We will definitely be using veil of grace in the future and refer every bride we know to this company!
THE ABSOLUTE BEST!!! Sam and her team are some of the most talented and nice people you can ever meet. They know exactly how to make you and your bridal party look their best, and they truely listen to you and your girls requests. Sam was able to make all the images in my head come to life, and I have never felt more beautiful than when I looked in the mirror for the first time after my hair and make up was complete. Not only is she so excellent at what she does, but she is so incredibly calming and nice. She clearly knows how to make a bride feel extra special on the big day....she is the kind of person you can talk to and instantly feel like you are great friends. The VOG team travels to where you need them to go and set up their own 'mini studio' wherever you are. Their hair and make up skills photograph so well too! A PLEASURE to work with! HIGHLY reccommend!!!
Samantha and her team transformed me (the bride) and my bridesmaids for my Sept 2015 wedding. She did an absolutely perfect job. I would say the best parts were: (a) when we did the test run I didn't know what I wanted so we tried different things and she was very receptive to my feedback. In fact, I felt that day of she had spent time thinking about what I really wanted (but had a tough time expressing) and what would look good with my face shape/ coloring and really went the extra mile (b) the awesome, supportive attitude during the day of (c) extreme professionalism Would recommend to anyone who is looking to get glamorous for a wedding or an event!!!

I had Samantha do my hair and makeup for my engagement photos and also for my wedding day. Her amazing Veil of Grace team also helped with all my 6 bridesmaids, mother of the groom and flower girl's looks for the wedding day as well. Other than the flower girl, all of us received airbrush makeup, lashes and hair styles with some updos. I cannot say enough about how great she is to work with and what an amazing job she does. She is very professional, organized, creative and just an overall joy to work with. She makes you feel super special because she is very attentive to all your desires and needs. The entire process and transaction with Veil of Grace is very organized and easy to understand. She is also very flexible on the day of your wedding. She keeps everyone on track but is very easy going and makes sure everyone looks great before pictures. I can't say enough about how great she is and how you need to contact her for your special day! As for my looks for both events, she was very interested in knowing exactly what I wanted. I was very nervous about wearing more makeup than I was used to and she was very patient with me and understanding. She made me feel comfortable by trying a look that wasn't over the top and more natural. All my girls were very happy with their looks and said they would use all the girls again. So don't hesitate and call Sam and her amazing Veil of Grace team STAT! You will not be disappointed!
I had Samantha do my bridal hair and hair for my bridesmaids. I went with an old hollywood glamour hair and she did such an AMAZING job. Everyone kept coming up to me at my wedding to compliment my hair and how beautiful it looked. My bridesmaids also loved their hair-dos and were so impressed by Samantha. She also showed up on time and was very professional and got everyone's hair done ahead of schedule. You won't be disappointed!!! Such a wonderful job!!
