For over 15 years, I have taken a passionate and creative approach to my work. Working in the personal care industry has shaped me as an artist and has allowed me to meet many different people and experience many different products. I have been honored to work with a variety of lines such as Chanel as a Manager and Regional Makeup Artist, Borghese, H2O Plus and Aveda, concentrating on my career as an Esthetician. I provide airbrush foundation applications which is a must for brides, especially in the summer. I use a variety of products in my kit, everything from Maybelline Great Lash Mascara to Chanel lipstick. I find what works the best no matter the price or the name! If I haven't used it, I won't use it on my clients.

My major concentration for the last 10 years has been in the bridal industry where every encounter allows me to put my brides at ease and enhance the natural beauty that is already present. As an on location makeup artist, I will travel anywhere in the Greater Cincinnati area and will negotiate locations outside the area.

As a Makeup artist, I know preparing with makeup and hair on the wedding day can become hectic for all involved. I welcome the opportunity to work with each and every bride to make her look and feel unique, A day all her own! The biggest comment I get from brides/bridesmaids/mothers is that they are so glad to have had my services. It was more calming and fun!!! Allow yourself that special time to be with your friends and family and enjoy each other without having to feel rushed by going elsewhere. Read less

I live in Portland, Oregon but my wedding was in Cincinnati. Needless to say, it was a little overwhelming to begin planning a wedding 2,500 miles away. Also, it was a surprise wedding that we ended up planning in a 6-month time frame. I found Jean through Google searches and read great review after great review. I immediately contacted her to set up a trial appointment when I was home over Christmas. She was responsive and flexible with scheduling. Upon meeting her, I was pleased to find that she was incredibly confident in her work. I absolutely loved my make-up after the trial and the day of the wedding. Jean certainly pinpointed the perfect look for me, but one of the best things about her was how calming she was on the day of my wedding. She stayed through the beginning of the evening to ensure that I looked flawless as I took my first step down the aisle. She will not disappoint if you choose her for your make-up!

Jean did an amazing job with my make-up for my wedding. I was an out of town bride, and would only be in town for one weekend before my wedding, and was lucky that Jean was free and available to help. She created the perfect look for me. I had two wedding ceremonies - a Sikh (Indian ceremony) and a catholic ceremony, as well as a reception on the same day, and needed a look that would go with both ceremonies and last the entire day. Jean created the perfect look that complemented both the elaborate Indian outfit and more subdued catholic one. My make-up lasted all day, and I (as someone who normally doesn't wear make-up) felt it looked incredibly natural.

Additionally, she (with the help of Summer) was able to do the makeup for each of my 7 bridesmaids and my mom, coming to my home at 6:00 am with everyone ready to go by a 10:00 am ceremony. One of my bridesmaids was planning to do her own make-up, because she had such horrible experiences in the past, but decided to try at the last minute and was so impressed with the results.

Jean Folchi did my makeup as well as my bridesmaids and my mother's for my wedding. I couldn't have been more happy with what she did! I don't typically wear a lot of makeup and was originally nervous to find someone to do my makeup, fearing that they wouldn't make me 'look like me.' From my first meeting with Jean, all my worries disappeared. She made me feel so at ease, and I absolutely LOVED what she did! I would recommend her services to anyone wanting to feel absolutely beautiful on their special day!

In a word: LOVE her. Ok that's two, but you know what I mean. I can't rave enough about Jean. She was SUPER flexible with my crazy scheduling (I travel for work and had to reschedule almost all of my appointments due to having to go out of town). She was prompt, professional, calm, but so fun to work with! My girls and I all used her for my wedding and couldn't have been happier. To me she went above and beyond; I didn't just get a trial make up run and wedding day make up. She spoke with me about my complexion, skin type, etc. to help so I look my best (all the time and especially my wedding day). I would HIGHLY recommend her.

I was a matron of honor in my best friend's wedding recently. We were lucky enough to have Jean do all of our makeup. Being the mom of a newborn, I really needed to feel beautiful and she made it happen. I felt gorgeous! She gave me a few tips about my skin and knew exactly what I wanted even though I couldn't really explain it that well. I will definitely be scheduling a make up lesson with Jean very soon! I would highly recommend her to any bride or anyone who just wants to feel good about themselves!

Jean was everything I was looking for in a makeup artist for my wedding day! As an out-of-town bride getting married in Dayton, I needed someone who could communicate with me well and be flexible to my schedule for the trial run. She was both of these things! Jean made suggestions for skincare prior to my big day based on my specific skin type which was also great. The trial run was smooth and easy. She made sure to listen to the look I wanted and tailored my makeup perfectly! And on the actual day, everything was fabulous! She provided makeup for my mom and several of my bridesmaids. Everyone looked absolutely beautiful. Not to mention, she is fun to be around and has a personality that puts you at ease and makes you feel very comfortable and confident. I would highly recommend her to any bride in the area!

Jean Folchi is AWESOME!!! I am someone who never wears makeup so I was nervous about getting airbrush makeup the day of my wedding. She came highly recommended from other friends so I decided to take the plunge... and I'm so happy I did! I did my trial run for my engagement pictures so that I could see what it would look like for pictures and I LOVED it! The day of the wedding Jean came right to our hotel and did makeup for 9 of us and she was so amazing! She was so sweet and professional, she was completely calm and remained on schedule the entire day. She was so friendly and everyone was so happy with their makeup. I never received more compliments than I did that night. I felt like a true princess! She even gave me some extra makeup for me to keep in my purse for touchups! I give her an A++++ She is fabulous!!

We used Jean for my daughter's recent wedding when she did the makeup for the bride, all of the bridesmaids, the mother of the groom and me. She is wonderful to work with and did an outstanding job on everyone. Her airbrush technique provides a flawless finish that stays put throughout the entire evening, and looks amazing in photographs! Jean and her assistant traveled to our house on the morning of the wedding and provided each member of the wedding party with an individualized look. Both were highly professional but, at the same time, a lot of fun and very easygoing! Everyone had a great time during the makeup process and all of us looked terrific! Jean is the best!

Jean and her assistant were both wonderful. I couldn't have asked for better makeup artists on my wedding day. They had a lot of ladies to get through and even had to touch-up my sister after we found out she was allergic to a particular plant in the house!

But they got everyone ready in record time and off to get pictures done on time before the ceremony. 5 stars for sure! I will be recommending her services to everyone I know :)

I could not have been happier with Jean's service for all of my wedding needs. She provided makeup for my engagement photos and on the wedding day for myself and entire bridal party (which was met with rave reviews by all). Aside from being an amazing talent, she is a wonderful listener and extremely fun to be around. I could not have imagined a better personality to work with. I really felt that she cared about my wants & needs while also giving me good direction whenever I had questions. She even was able to come back to provide touch-ups on my wedding day despite having to work her schedule around it, and I could not have been happier on the day where it counted most. I would recommend Jean to anyone with full confidence that she will provide an amazing service, and I plan to continue to use her whenever I can in the future!!

As someone who rarely wears makeup, I was very worried about my wedding day look, but Jean nailed it. I looked elegant but still looked like me. Not only is she an exceptional talent, but her sense of humor is fabulous. You'll be laughing so hard, you'll totally forget any jitters you had!

I got married on 01/01/2011, but since my wedding was on New Year’s Day (Holiday), I had difficulties finding someone who was willing to work with me on price and location for my make-up. All of the salons that I had called were going to be closed on that day and the prices that they quoted for on-site application were ridiculous!!! I had a list of things that I really wanted for my big day, but time was flying by and it seemed as if I would be lucky to find anyone who could help me. I wanted Airbrush application, false eyelashes, someone who would travel on-site, a full trial-run to get the exact look for my wedding day, reasonable prices, and someone who was professional yet very personable to make the day enjoyable. I started asking around at work for referrals and a co-worker referred me to the person who had done her wedding make-up a year ago, Jean Folchi. She said that Jean was great so I decided to give her a call. I was very concerned about coverage because I have extremely severe sun damage from not wearing sun screen in my teens and early 20's. My skin is uneven and I have discolored brown spots. I specifically wanted someone who could provide the flawless coverage that I wanted and I preferred that it was airbrush application. When I called Jean I knew immediately before even meeting her that she was going to be PERFECT. After we confirmed her availability for my wedding date/time, she wanted to know every detail about what I wanted for my wedding. She wanted to know how I envisioned my big day and what look I was going for. She asked me to bring pictures of things that I liked and things that I wanted to try as well as photos of my dress, my hair, my jewelry, and any other accessories so that we could put the final look together. Jean was AMAZING and her prices were unbelievably reasonable!!! She agreed to do my make-up and my bridal party’s make-up and she would also travel to the location for my wedding to do our make-up on site. We set up a trial run and I was finally able to relax and stop stressing about my make-up. I had a full trial-run where Jean did an entire application based on what I told her I wanted. We played with different looks and different colors until I was 110% set on how I wanted my make-up for the Big Day! On the day of my wedding, Jean arrived early (which I LOVED) and she was ready to go. She was so much fun and unbelievably comforting as my plunge down the aisle drew nearer and the nerves grew. There was a lot of commotion while I was getting ready because everyone in the bridal party and my family and friends and the camera crew were all going in and out of the room. Jean could tell that I was really starting to get nervous and on the verge of a meltdown when there were over 20 people in my hotel room at one point. Jean reminded me to keep breathing and asked me if it would be okay to close and lock the door until I was finished with hair and makeup. No one else even seemed to care about the chaos that was going on, but Jean could tell just by reading my face and she was the ONLY person who took control of the situation and helped me relax. If she hadn’t been there, I honestly can say that I would have been a wreck. Not only was my wedding make-up FABULOUS, but Jean was there for me as a FRIEND throughout the entire process and I cannot thank her enough for that. I will only get married once and I wanted my wedding day to be perfect. Before my wedding, I would always wonder how everything would turn out. I would try to picture the look on my husband’s face when he would see me for the first time coming down the aisle, but never in a million years could I have imagined how blown away he would be. The look on his face is something that I will NEVER EVER forget and I have Jean Folchi to thank for that. When our wedding and reception ended, all of the sudden I found myself getting really upset and emotional. When my husband asked why, I realized that it was because after months and months of planning and anticipation, it was finally over. I didn’t want to wash off my make-up or take down my hair and take off my dress because that was confirmation that it was really over. I knew at that moment that for the rest of my life, I would never feel as beautiful as I did on my Wedding Day!!! Thank you Jean for making my wedding the most memorable day of my life thus far and anyone who is trying to decide on your wedding make-up, stop stressing and worrying about it and CALL JEAN FOLCHI.

The look on his face is something that I will NEVER EVER forget and I have Jean Folchi to thank for that. When our wedding and reception ended, all of the sudden I found myself getting really upset and emotional. When my husband asked why, I realized that it was because after months and months of planning and anticipation, it was finally over. I didn’t want to wash off my make-up or take down my hair and take off my dress because that was confirmation that it was really over. I knew at that moment that for the rest of my life, I would never feel as beautiful as I did on my Wedding Day!!! Thank you Jean for making my wedding the most memorable day of my life thus far and anyone who is trying to decide on your wedding make-up, stop stressing and worrying about it and CALL JEAN FOLCHI.

My daughter lives out of town and so her trips to plan the wedding were filled with places to go and people to meet with. Jean was excellent at working with us in scheduling the trial make-up session and helping us get what we needed. The wedding make-up was awesome. The bride looked absolutely fabulous and everyone commented on how beautiful she was ( and very natural looking). The brides maids and mother of the bride all had make-up done by Jean and looked beautiful as well. Jean came to the hotel to do the make-up and scheduled her time so no one felt rushed. I would recommend Jean in a heartbeat!

Jean was the only makeup artist I tried (and picked her because I liked the sample pictures on her website) and loved how everyone’s makeup turned out! I was very confident from the trial b/c I just loved how everything looked but then she did a trial for my mom and I was even more convinced. Also, she gave me the details on all of the colors she used during the trial so I could have makeup for touchups if needed (which they weren’t although might have been helpful for a summer bride). Would definitely recommend her!

My mom, sister (maid of honor), and I all got our make-up done by Jean for my wedding. Jean did a wonderful job and our make-up looked amazing! Gotta love the air-brush. It felt so light, looked amazing in pictures, and stayed on all day. She even corrected a slight tan line! Jean was also very flexible and really accomodating. My wedding was early, at 11am, so Jean actually woke up at 4am to get to my hotel on time. Like most brides, I was super nervous that morning. Jean was so comforting, always talking to me to keep my mind occupied and even offered a few remedies. She had great advice too! Jean was absolutely amazing and I 100% recommend her to all brides in the area. Thanks for everything Jean!

I would recommend her to everyone. She has a great personality and is very fun to work with. She will also gauge your skin type at your trial and recommend products that will help your skin.

Jean did my makeup and all my bridesmaids make up for my wedding this October. She was so much fun to work with, so easy to contact, and we looked AMAZING on the big day! At my trial, she was so interested in all the details of the wedding, what kind of makeup I like, how I wanted certain things. Even after the trial she followed up to see how the makeup wore that day, if I wanted to change anything, etc etc. ALSO, she recommended some moisturizing products to start using so my skin would look flawless on the day of, and I still use those products today! I will be recommending her to anyone I know that is getting married, because she is AWESOME!!!

Makeup is always a concern for a bride, you want everyone to be pretty but natural. Jean is the best you could ever ask for. She is professional and fun. Jean makes your day better because she is so much fun while appling the prettiest makeup you could ask for. She takes her time while staying on time. She makes sure she knows how many people she is doing and keeps right on schedule. I had 9 girls in my wedding. She was willing to get up and be at my house at 6:30 am to start girls, while living about an hour away!! And yes the makeup was great until the end of the night. Definately get a trial run and book Jean Folchi for your wedding!!!! Also, her husband owns Folchi's Formal Wear for the tuxes, go there too, we did and they were fantastic, a great family to work with!! They feel like friends when we just met them.

Beautiful wedding party
Jean arrived at our home at 6am with a smile and ready to get started! We had 9 bridesmaids plus the bride to have their makeup done by noon. It was very relaxing and less stress to be able to be at home and have Jean come to us. Jean worked with each of the girls and even threw a few tips at the MOB (me) along the way. She was fun and stayed on a strict schedual to ensure everyone was ready and on time. The girls were all very happy with the makeup and still looked gorgeous at midnight. Wish we could share pictures. Great job, Jean.

Jean did an amazing job for my sister's wedding and was great to work with. My sister (the bride) and I had never had airbrushed foundation or false lashes, and generally don't wear a lot of makeup- so, it was very important to us to have a natural look that we felt comfortable yet glamorous in. Jean was right on target with the palettes she chose, and the products themselves felt great on. Our makeup looked beautiful the whole day and barely needed touch-ups aside from lipstick! Thanks Jean for all that you did and helping make my sister's special day amazing!

I would recommend Jean to any bride! I had met Jean while the two of were servicing the same bridal party. I was very impressed with her service as well as her great personality. I then knew that I had to have her do my wedding day makeup. At the time she had informed me that she had already had a wedding party booked, but she was more than willing to make it happen. Jean had done my trial the night of my rehearsal dinner and it looked great. That was one less thing that I had to worry about the day of the wedding.
The day of the wedding Jean was AMAZING! She made me and my maid of honor feel so beautiful. My makeup lasted the whole evening and my pictures turned out great. Also, for the past year my mother had been battling breast cancer and was still indecisive on wether or not to wear her wig or reveal publicly her short pixie cut. After a makeup application with Jean, my mother felt more beautiful than she had in over a year! Jean had made my mother feel so confident that she did not wear her wig. I was so happy and proud of my mom. We owe that to Jean!
Jean knows her stuff and is a necessity to any bride!

Jean is so nice to work with and did such a wonderful job! I met with her a few months before my wedding and we did a trial run which was really nice and talked about how to keep my skin in tip top shape for the months leading up to the wedding. On the wedding day she drove all the way to my house that was about an hour away and spent her Sunday morning making myself, bridesmaids, and moms look beautiful. The makeup was good coverage without looking fake and pictures were incredible. The wedding was outdoors in August and the spray makeup did not run at all -- I would definitely recommend Jean to anyone who wants to look their best on their wedding day.

She is so personable....we always feel so comfortable with her and trust her decisions. I will use her again if the situaioin ever arises. DEFINITELY!

Jean was an absolute pleasure to work with! Soon after I got engaged, I emailed a few different make-up artists and Jean was one of them. She replied back with a personal phone call right away and she was so professional, warm and easy to talk with. I knew right away it was going to be a great fit. She came to meet me at my house for the trial run and she came so prepared and willing to work with all of my requests and ideas. She even consulted me with beauty and skincare tips. I had a few changes when planning my timeline for day of the wedding and she was so flexible and accommodating to my schedule. I was so nervous on the day of my wedding like many brides, and her personality was so soothing and she truly calmed my nerves. I loved how my make-up turned out and my mom, sister and bridesmaid were also so impressed. She was even there for me when my shuttle bus was running late and offered to drive me and my bridesmaid to the ceremony. She went above and beyond and I would highly recommend her for her professionalism, personality, artistic ability and reliability. Thank you, Jean for helping me to be a beautiful bride!

I contacted Jean one week before my wedding, after being disappointed with another vendor. Not only was her responsiveness impressive, jean is the most down to earth, jovial and attentive vendor I have EVER dealt with. Her knowledge about her art is far beyond what I could've expected from a make-up artist, and not only was the make-up flawless and lasting for the wedding, she made recommendations for several skin care products that have literally changed the the appearance of my skin. I have never had so many compliments on my make-up and skin.....
If you are concerned that make-up will destroy your skin or clog your pores, rest assured! You are dealing with a TRUE PROFESSIONAL. I never had a single breakout after, and that was one og my biggest fears. In addition, our pictures are phenomenal and the makeup never ran, even amidst the 90 degree heat outdoors.
Love you Jean!!!!

Jean is WONDERFUL! After 5 make-up trials (with supposed) Make-up artists in the area, I was growing increasingly weary and wondered if I would ever find ANYONE who would listen to me and give me the look I wanted. I wanted to look like ME...just way better! And that it EXACTLY what I got! I looked awesome in my pictures and the thanks goes to Jean! You still feel like YOU...only WAY better!

She's patient, she listens, she's on -time, she's flexible and she's affordable! If you want to look like yourself only "intensified" (natural) and beautiful - you're crazy not to book her!

Jean is WONDERFUL! After 5 make-up trials (with supposed) Make-up artists in the area, I was growing increasingly weary and wondered if I would ever find ANYONE who would listen to me and give me the look I wanted. I wanted to look like ME...just way better! And that it EXACTLY what I got! I looked awesome in my pictures and the thanks goes to Jean! You still feel like YOU...only WAY better!

Having our make-up done by Jean was absolutely one of the highlights of our day prior to the wedding! She came to our hotel room and I believe she helped each of us relax and have some fun to what is sometimes a hectic and stressful time! We all watched as she made each bridesmaid feel more beautiful by enhancing their wedding look! As Mother of the Bride, I could see the confidence in my daughter's face as she just beamed while Jean did her magic! It was the icing on the cake! I have never felt so gorgeous as when Jean did my make-up but the best part was watching my daughter and her special friends gather around and enjoy being pampered. Thanks Jean!

Jean was an absolute pleasure to work with and she did an unbelievably fabulous job! Being an out-of-town bride resulted in some interesting challenges, but she was completely willing to work around my hectic schedule and just from speaking to her over the phone and through emails I knew I was making a good choice before we even had a chance to meet face to face. I don't think I ever looked as flawless as I did on my wedding day and I owe a huge part of that to Jean. If I ever have the need for professional make-up in the future I will definitely be giving her a call.

Jean was an absolute pleasure to work with. The makeup she did for me, my bridesmaids and my mother on my wedding day was absolutely beautiful. I gave her a 5 star rating in all of the above categories.
Quality of Service / Value for Cost:I felt the quality of the products she used and her talent were truely 5 star, and due to the quality of her work, it was definately a good value for the cost.
Responsiveness: She was always easy to get ahold of either by email or phone.
Professionalism: She was very professional but also fun to talk to and gave advice on makeup products / techniques to use.
Flexibility: She was willing to work around my schedule to set up a convenient time for my makeup trial.
I was nervous about wearing false eyelashes the day of my wedding, but Jean applied them in a way so that they did not budge the whole night. She even gave me extra glue and told me to call her if there were any problems. She came to the location we were getting ready at which was really convenient. I could tell she really cared about making us all look beautiful and that we were happy. Thanks Jean!

Thank you Jean for the making me look (and feel) beautiful on my wedding day! It was great that you listened to me during the trial run, asking me questions so you could do my makeup to my comfort level. When my groom got his first look at me before the ceremony, he said I looked so beautiful and had tears in his eyes! My mom and daughter both looked wonderful too! Engaging in conversation with you during the whole process and having a few laughs sure did take the tension off! It was a pleasure to work with you and kudos to you for arriving on time and being a professional!!..Lori Arkin..

Jean did such an amazing job on my wedding day make-up. I had so many people compliment me on my make-up. I loved the airbrush foundation- it felt so light, but looked great. Jean is very professional and laid back at the same time. Somehow she kept me calm and kept my nervousness at bay while I was in her chair. She is also so nice and fun to work with. I loved the fact that she travels; it was very nice to have her and my hair stylist come to our hotel the day of the wedding. It was one less thing we had to worry about. Jean did such a great job and I would highly recommend her work to anyone looking for a make-up artist!

Jean did an outstanding job! Not only do I know Jean on a professional level, she has been a good friend through the years. It was an honor to have her do my bridal make-up for my wedding! We had great fun catching up! One of the bridesmaids in my wedding had recently gotten married and had wished that Jean would have been her make-up artist instead! She is really talented with the application of false lashes and has a smooth touch with the airbrush make-up. It really leaves a flawless finish and my eyes looked amazing! Someone said that I looked like I was on the cover of a bridal magazine, and I owe most of the credit to Jean! I highly recommend her and want to say thank you so much Jean!

Jean did an amazing job doing the make-up for my wedding party. She was very professional yet had a great sense of humor which made it all the more fun! Her great sense of style helped all the girls to look their very best. She did all 8 of our make-up and did a fabulous job. I would 100% recommend her to any bride! Also, i totally recommend having her put on fake eyelashes-we all got them and loved them! Awesome job Jean!

Jean is the most dedicated reliable person you will hire. Even with a family tragedy just days before my wedding she still showed up and put on the best face possible. Her talent and skills are as amazing as her personality. I honestly can not say enough great things about her and her ability.

You will be in great hands with Jean no matter what the day is.

Thank you so much for making my day so amazing!!

I was more than pleased with my make up for the day of my wedding. Jean Folchi does a fantastic job of making your make up look so natural yet eye catching! When I originally scheduled Jean I knew she had a great reputation; however, she exceeded my expectations with her flexibility in traveling to where my bridesmaids and I were having our hair done, and also her professionalism. I had 10 bridesmaids, a mother of the bride, a mother of the groom, and a sister-in-law all having make up done before a 3:30pm ceremony. Jean and her assistant were amazing on keeping a timeline in order and also helping ensure I stayed calm through it all. Not one person was upset with their end result after having their make up done, and we would all do it all over again. My mom and I often say how it would be nice to be able to have Jean come over everyday to fix our make up!! I can't thank her enough for an incredible job and experience to have always! THANKS. - Beth Tyburski

Jean was an angel sent to us from the heavens. We loved her and the miracles that she worked for us on such an important day. I have and will continue to recommend her to each and every bride I come in contact with. She is a true professional and listens to what each of us requested for our special look that day. She even well the extra mile and covered a badly sunburned chest and shoulder area. Our photos turned out great and we met a wonderful friend.

Just book Jean right now! She is the an amazing makeup artist and a blast to work with. I first met Jean when she did the makeup for my sister's wedding in May of 2009. I knew right then and there that if I ever got married I wanted to hire her (I had no idea it would be a year later). In fact, right after I got engaged my mom said to me "Did you book Jean yet?" this was before we even had our firm wedding date set or a reception venue!

Jean is talented in her craft, knowledgeable about products and establishing a pre-wedding skin care regime. My favorite quality about her is that she gets excited for the bride and we felt like she was part of our family, not a hired vendor.

Please do not book anyone else to do your make-up in Cincinnati without considering Jean Folchi. She is a peach!

Jean was such a joy to work with! I have always had problem skin (acne, acne scars, dry patches, etc.) and MONTHS before the wedding, she chatted with me at length about different products I could use on my skin to create the best possible canvass. I wish I could attach a photo of the work she did - my skin looked FANTASTIC and she did a great job listening to exactly what I wanted and picking colors that she knew would work. I got SO many compliments on my wedding-day look, and I owe it all to Jean! She also has a wonderful personality and is more than happy to answer any makeup/beauty/skin questions you have.

Jean was very friendly and pleasant to work with. She didn't try to push any one style of makeup on me while also helped find me a good look when I wasn't really sure what I was looking for. She came to my place for the trial and to the hotel I stayed in for the wedding, so she's very mobile. She definitely made me feel beautiful for my wedding.
