Amy Burke Designs
Amy is so talented - so creative, sweet, passionate. Working with her was a dream. We knew from the moment we started talking during our initial consultation, that she was the one for us! She just understood us and our style and brought it to life. Amy picked up our vision and ran with it! She delivered more than I ever imagined - I was in love with everything she did - my bouquet was by far the most beautiful I've ever seen. The ceremony treatment was intimate and romantic - exactly what we wanted. Our reception decor was so gorgeous that I teared up walking into the room. Everything was just so special and beautiful. She is one of the best out there and so perfect to work with - her work and style is stunning!

My husband and I both loved working with Natasha to select our ceremony and reception entertainment. Having her familiarity and guidance was a huge asset during our planning resulting in saving time, money, and overall reducing stress! She listened to our ideas and respected our budget requirements. She provided recommendations and ideas quickly in a proposal and checked in several times during the planning process. We loved her selections for both the guitarist for our ceremony and our DJ who was nothing short of amazing and kept the dance floor packed all night. We highly recommend her!

Giao Nguyen Makeup Artistry & Hair Design
Giao is one of the best things about PW in my opinion. I found Giao on here due largely in part to the recommendations and photos of many of you lovely ladies - thank you in advance! I reached out to Giao via email to inquire about basic services and details. I sent her photos of me, the wedding style, inspiration shots of hair and makeup, and a general sense. Throughout the entire process, Giao always quickly responded, and provided all the answers I needed. I felt she was professional and warm, with a great talent and style. We arranged a trial session, and even before we met, I was immediately comfortable and knew I was in good hands. Before starting the actual trial, we reviewed what I was thinking of, discussed options and colors, and talked about past hair and makeup services, cosmetics, etc. Giao is so talented, and so personable - it was lovely working with her! She picked beautiful colors for me, did an amazing job on my dramatic smoky eyes and fake lashes, and provided a perfect airbrushed foundation. My skin looked flawless and glowing. She picked colors that looked better in photography - likely a benefit from having a sweet, talented photographer husband, Thai Mai. Throughout my trial, Giao offered ideas, enhancements, and layered on the colors as we went so I could see the transition. I appreciated how she made sure I was perfectly happy with every tiny detail. When she started on my hair, she again talked through the process, even showing me multiple variations. I originally wanted my bangs to sweep to the side which she did beautifully. However, she didn't feel it had the wow factor we were looking for and quickly made some adjustments to show me an alternative which I loved even more! I had been so nervous about finding a perfect fit for hair and makeup that would be in my budget. I'm so relieved having found the perfect person - Giao is a kind, wonderful, talented, professional, perfection driven person and will make sure that every detail for our wedding is just perfect. I cannot recommend her highly enough - photos are in my bio if anyone is interested to compare my every day look with Giao's polished glam look.

I learned about this company through a few PW forum posts and was really happy with the entire process. I loved their selection and pricing the items as I was shopping for a very specific vintage inspired piece and needed a larger number of pieces. I received my order quickly and items were packed perfectly, arriving in great condition. The quality was great and honestly more than I expected in value for price paid. I'd highly recommend!
