Antonia and her assistant did hair and make up for 11 girls the day of the wedding. They were AMAZING!!! My hair was amazing and make up lasted through us dancing the night away. LOVE everything they did for us.

Amanda Ritchey was awesome! She made all the bridesmaids and I look and feel so beautiful! I'm telling you,..my skin and lashes never looked so good! Haha! She is not only a talented make up artist, but the kind of person you'd like to have around as you and your bridesmaids are getting ready for the big day! She's very sweet, and positive,...my girls and I loved her!! : ) Antonia, with Amanda Ritchie Bridal did many of the bridesmaids hair, and also did an awesome job!! They made a great team, and I'm so glad we chose them! They are also very reasonably priced,....I'd recommend them to everyone for sure!!!

Amanda did my makeup, bridemaids, and my mom's makeup for the wedding and she did an amazing job!

She knew exactly what look I was going for without me even having to tell her! When I saw my finished makeup in the mirror, my sister-in-law caught a picture of my reaction, and it was priceless...my mouth was hanging open in awe of how beautiful of a job Amanda did.

My makeup was everything I dreamed and more. The value for the cost was excellent and she even gave me a lip crayon and gloss for touch ups throughout the night.

Amanda Ritchey is a fantastic make-up artist. From the first trial, I knew that she was going to make my wedding day very special. I was concerned with my make-up because I do not like to wear heavy make-up and feared that I would look overdone. Amanda put all these fears to rest. She used a combination of make-up including her own mineral line as well as MAC products. My make-up was flawless, natural and it felt like I barely had any make-up on! On the day of my wedding, not only did she beautifully complete my make-up but also my four bridesmaids and my mother’s. Amanda brought out the natural beauty in each of us. The entire day leading up to the wedding was relaxing and a lot of fun. The conversations and many laughs we shared made the day even more perfect. My husband was speechless and did shed a few tears as he saw me walking down the aisle. He could not stop commenting on how gorgeous I looked, and I owe a big part of that to Amanda Ritchey. Amanda is truly a beautiful person as well as a very talented make-up stylist.

Amanda saved me... I had a BM dramatic emergency 10 days before my wedding... MY BM dresses were special order and could not be ordered in time. She worked with me in finding a similar dress and had it rush delivered and it made it in time for final alterations and it turned out fantastic!!! I am thrilled she was soooo willing to help me on such short notice!!!!
The "regular BM dresses" I also ordered from here were exactly what I wanted and arrived in perfect condition and were fairly priced. WOuld defiantly recommend using amanda!!

Amanda did everyones make up for our wedding. Her work is perfect and everyone looked amazing! Her and my hair dresser didnt get along, I think Amanda kind of took something my hairdresser said the wrong way causing some friction between her and my hair person more on Amanda's side. Amanda also vented about the "issue" to one of my bridesmaids which wasnt cool.(truthfully My hairdresser asked a question and Amanda thought it was a question that insulted her skills, but I was there and it really wasnt. If I thought for one second that the lady doing my hair was being anything but friendly, I would have said something, and amanda would have had every right to be upset but that was not the case here.) Luckily that happened as we all were rushing to finish the final touches, so I didnt say anything. Other then that minor issue, Amanda's trial was flawless, she listened to everything i wanted, she was true to her every word, her work is amazing, and she delivered QUAILTY service. Will we use her again? Absolutely. Will I recommend her to others? YES for sure and i already did. Like I said her and her work are great, I never got the vibe that she was a touchy or sensitive person so maybe she just was focusing on something else and therefore misinterpreted what the hair lady was asking. Other then that... Thanks for doing great makeup!

Unfortunately the day of the wedding my biggest stress was waiting for Amanda to show up. Luckily I had literally cushioned our time with two extra hours so the fact that she was extremely late wasn't an issue and we ended up leaving right on time but we didn't have any time for last minute touch ups. Apparenly, she didn't realize how far away we were even though I paid extra for her travel. I think it's unacceptable to be late and if I hadn't added time I wouldn't have made it to the wedding on time. Some of the girls liked their makeup and some didn't but there wasn't any time to make adjustments for the one's who didn't so they just had to deal with it. I loved the way I looked but it was completely different from when I had gone in for my trial. She gave me eyelash extensions for free but I think I should have gotten more than that knocked off. I had also requested several times that she give me gift certificates so I could give them to my girls so they would know that their makeup was paid for and she kept saying that she would but she never sent me any. She was a little disorganized. While everything turned out fine I think I could have gotten it done for less money and been just as satisfied. I had my makeup done by someone selling Mary Kay for a friends wedding for $12 and it turned out fine. I think my makeup alone was at least $150 and once I paid for all of my bridesmaid's and my mom (5 people including myself) I think I ended up paying around $650 and that was after the deposit which I thought was going to go towards the payment but apparently is just paying for the trial-run. I think the money would have been better spent elsewhere. I would recommend Amanda if you have plenty of time added in and don't need to get exactly what you want and have plenty of money to spend.
