Natalia Ewalt's Makeup
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
UPDATE: I love Natalia. She went above and beyond her duties the day of my wedding. Not only did she really pay attention to detail and all my girls loved all their makeup - she was inspiring and helpful. Words can not express how grateful I was that Natalia was there to touch me up right before I walked down the aisle. Natalia - you are the bomb. I am so glad you were my MUA for the wedding day. I would recommend this woman over and over and over again. --------------------------------------------------------------------------- From the moment I met Natalia, I felt immediately comfortable. I don't really wear a lot of makeup or know that much about it so she sat down with me and went through some photos of different styles that I would like. I really wanted something that looked more natural, but enough makeup to look great in pictures. She was patient with me in coming up with the look I wanted and had some great suggestions. The trial went great! Not only did she do a great job but she really helped me in deciding the look that I wanted, it was really a fun time as well, I really felt at ease. She was easy going, friendly and professional and her prices are very reasonable. She walked me through everything she was doing and she was completely open to change it to how I wanted to look. I am excited to use her as my makeup artist for my wedding.

I love Jessica! Not only do you feel like she can be your friend, she is a very genuine person. Jessica was very easy to communicate with and she would respond right away. We met with her a few times and she was very helpful with the timing and planning and intuitive to our needs. She was willing to work with our budget and customized something that worked for us. I like how natural and almost vintage her style is. At first we were afraid to do engagement shots because we thought we looked awkward but she made us feel at such ease and she also had it on her blog the next day! I love her and am happy we ended up with Jessica Quadra. I can't wait for the wedding - I know she is going to do an awesome job.

wedding alterations by Mahtab
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
Mahtab made me cry. My dress came out perfect and she is just one of the nicest people you will ever meet. I bought my dress at Alfred Angelo and when they gave me the estimate for alterations, it was double what I paid for my dress and I walked out of there so angry and in tears thinking how can we afford to pay for this since me and FH are paying for the wedding ourselves. As soon as I met Mahtab - she was honest about the cost and quoted me less than half what I would have paid for at Alfred Angelo. Ladies - Mahtab is amazing, honest and worth the drive. I am so happy I found her.

Frosted Cupcakery
( 1.0 / 5.0 )
I inquired about their cupcakes but they basically said that in order to taste them, I had to buy the cupcakes since my wedding was too small (60 people). Nancy said that since they have so many consultations, they just had to draw the line between what really was or wasn't. Basically telling me that since I had a small wedding, I wasn't worth giving a consultation. That was a real turnoff - I will be looking somewhere else.
