Melissa from Georgetown Bride practically saved me on my wedding day. Not only was she professional and responsive from my very first email to her, reasonably priced, accommodating to my schedule for both the trial and day-of-session, patient with my indecision (she spent 2 hours with me at my house for trial run), and punctual -she listened and delivered (which is something money cannot buy). I am extremely happy with her make up expertise but even more grateful for the way she calmed me down and gave me the confidence right before it was time to walk down the isle. People I was practically having a panic attack and she talked me off the ledge. 30 min before my "showtime" I somehow ended up alone (my 8 year old daughter was the only person in my wedding party and my family was waiting for me to take pictures), couldn't get to my venue without being seen by my guests and hadn't let my DJ know what ceremonial songs I needed played during the reception. Through out my year of wedding planning I had an "I can take care of my self" attitude and never planned for delegating last min craziness. I felt so alone and she wiped my tears, fixed my smudged make up and assured me that it would all be ok. She went above and beyond the job of a make up artist and made me feel like she was my confidant and friend. That to me meant more than her just making me look beautiful. She made me FEEL like beautiful strong woman on the inside, in a panicked moment where no bride ever wants to be. People like Melissa who have a passion/skill for what they do AND are genuinely good people are hard to come by.

Melissa Schwartz Jones made my wedding day beautiful by making me beautiful.

She was able to fully understand and execute a picture perfect look for me and my family with little direction and lots of laughs. The amazing thing was from noon to 3am the next night my hair and make-up stood the test of time. I looked just as good heading to bed as I did heading down the isle. So grateful to have had Melissa on my side!!! Stop looking and give her a call now!!

Melissa and her team were great. Everyone's make up looked great, it lasted, it was natural but the best version of each of the ladies in my wedding. HIGHLY recommend. You can't go wrong with Melissa. She is efficient, talented, professional and hilarious. It's great to have a warm and happy person around you on such a big and important day. I plan on hiring her again for future events!

I cannot say enough wonderful things about Melissa. She did hair and make-up for my mom and I earlier this month, and we could not be happier. I knew I made the right choice when she came to my house to do a trial session. I only had to show her two pictures, and she knew exactly how I wanted to look on the day of my wedding. She spent so much time with me at the trial, making sure I felt comfortable. I was completely at ease on my wedding day, and my mom and I loved the way everything turned out. My make-up and hair stayed all night, and I received so many compliments.

There are so many moving parts and vendors to book during a wedding. Booking Melissa was by far the best decision I made in the planning process. She is amazing!

Melissa did a wonderful job with my hair and make-up at my wedding. I'm lucky that I found her after only one other trial with another vendor. When my venue changed, she suggested that I get darker eye makeup. I was worried at first, but she was right. I received a lot of compliments on the outcome! Another thing I really like about Melissa is that she's really calm and relaxed, which totally helped me when we were getting ready at the hotel, where everything gets a bit chaotic. Her demeanor helped me calm my nerves, especially when I was being photographed and filmed.

I highly recommend Melissa Schwartz Jones!

Melissa and her team were fantastic!

I had originally booked a salon (with great Google reviews) that was two blocks away from the hotel where the wedding took place. I went in with my sister for a trial hair and makeup run, and we left the salon very disappointed. The makeup did not match our skin tones, and it did not look very natural or what the picture I brought in as a sample.

After some internet searching, I came upon Georgetown Bride. I called Melissa and explained that I needed someone short notice, and she was very flexible. She came to my house for trial hair and makeup. We played around with different hairstyles for a while. We also worked on the makeup. Melissa was very patient, which I appreciated after my last experience. At the end of the trial, I confidently booked Melissa for the wedding.

On the day of the wedding, Melissa came with a teammate, who was also super nice. They did everyone's hair and makeup. Some girls came in with pictures of what they wanted, and others just said to do whatever with their hair. Melissa made everyone look great. I changed my hairstyle last minute, and still Melissa was flexible and patient. The makeup look soft and natural, which was important to my mother, but it was dark enough to be visible in photos from a distance.

I cannot say enough good things about Georgetown Bride! Melissa is phenomenal.

Be SURE you use Melissa and Georgetown Bride for your wedding! I did multiple trials before finding her and I'm so glad I kept trying and found her through our wedding planners suggestion. Melissa came to our house and did a trial for my hair and makeup and it was EXACTLY the way I expressed what I wanted to her, actually, it was even better than I pictured. She came back and did a trial for my mom as well as for our engagement photoshoot. My hair and makeup lasted throughout my ENTIRE wedding day and didn't even have to do any touchups throughout the evening. My hair even lasted through the next morning where I took the pins out but my hair was STILL curly. I had an outdoor wedding and I don't know how Melissa and her team did it, but all of my bridesmaids hair stayed curled throughout the entire day and they almost all wore it down. I am still in shock about how great they did because all of the girls reported their hair NEVER holds a curl but Melissa and her team found a way! Melissa was nothing but a joy to work with, was understanding of all situations, came to my house at 8pm when I was working 10+ hour days and had no other time to do the trial, the list just goes on and on. She is super pleasant to work with, fixed and tried anything I wanted to have done and is even going to come back to help my mom work on her everyday hair and makeup styling! I have never seen my mom excited about her hair and makeup but thanks to Melissa's help and skills, my mom is excited about it now! Thank you Melissa for your amazing work and for making my wedding day look better than I ever dreamt it could be! HIGHLY RECOMMEND this company. You would seriously regret your decision if you didn't. Thanks again Georgetown Bride!!!

Melissa is an exceptional artist. I contracted her for my whole wedding party, along with my mom and her sister. She did both my hair and makeup.

After the first trial, I was still unsure of what I wanted, so she came back to my house and we did another trial. We discovered the bohemian look I was going for during trial 2, and I am positive she would have come back again if I needed another trial. She went out of her way to make sure I was happy and confident about my look, long before the wedding day. She was such a friend to me throughout the process.

Whatever style you are going for, she can do it for you, and she approaches the challenge with a smile and a whole lot of patience for us finicky brides. Thank you Melissa!
