Kirsten Tucker Designs
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
Kirsten did my double french bustle and she did an amazing job. I intially wanted my bustles with more points, but sadly my train wasn't long enough. I'm happy with the end result though. Since the points are color coordinated it will be pretty easy for my BMs to bustle me up during the wedding. I'm so glad I brought my dress to Kirsten. She's a really sweet lady and she gave me some really suggestions. She finished my dress pretty quickly. I highly recommend her to future brides. UPDATE 12/30 At least 5 people stepped on my dress, and I was amazed that the bustle lasted the entire night. I was afraid the darn thing would break off. But the bustle lasted throughout the whole night!

Giao Nguyen Makeup Artistry & Hair Design
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
After seeing Giao's amazing work, I knew she would be the perfect person for my wedding. Unfortunately she was already booked on my wedding date. I was so bummed. But not for long.....For my 'day after session', I knew I wanted to have Giao do my hair and makeup. I didn't bother having a trial because I knew I was in good hands. Giao is the sweetest person, in addition to being an incredible artist. She knows exactly how to bring out your best features and make you feel beautiful. I brought in some photos but couldn't really describe what I wanted her to do to my hair. Giao did a wonders to my hair, but I asked to Giao make some minor changes which came out perfectly. My curls lasted until midnight, and it looked as perfect as it did in the morning. For my makeup, I asked Giao for dark eyes, and light lips. When someone does my makeup, I'm not usually impressed because it always look a little "off" to me. But I was blown away when I looked in the mirror. My makeup was flawless, and everything was exactly how I wanted it. Giao sure knows how to make a girl feel glamourous! Giao is so talented and I'm so glad I had the opportunity to work with her. I highly recommend her to other brides! I really don't think 5 stars is enough for her. 10 is more like it!
