Audrey Crandell, aka Glowing Bridal Makeup Artistry
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
I don't even known where to begin. Audrey is all the wonderful things everyone else has said, and more. Talk about above and beyond... I was short on cash for vendor tips the morning of the wedding - which was a Sunday (banks closed). The ATM would only allow my dad to pull out a few hundred. Audrey said she had cash on her from the wedding she did the previous day and that I could write her a check for it! She also knew that I was doing a trash the dress video shoot a couple days later and had extra lashed for me to use for it. She has such a calm energy (not too many others in the room did) and was so much fun to work with. I know she does weddings all the time, but was genuinely excited for me :) She is just an absolute doll!!! Now, onto her work... WOW! I wish I could carry her in my pocket everyday. I wanted to look a little more made up than the "natural" look, and brought pictures of what I was looking for with me to the trial. I was running about 1/2 hour late (stupid traffic) and she still nailed it! Then again on the wedding day, she blew me away. I got a ton of compliments. Oh, oh, oh - I almost forgot, she did a little work on my mom and made her look so beautiful (and about 10 years younger). Do not hesitate to hire this wonderful woman for your wedding. You will be soooo happy you did! Audrey rocks!

Bellissima Vita Weddings
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
Can I add a sixth star? 'Cause I want to, she deserves it! Lisa is a godsend. She is the most professional, sweetest, most capable, detail oriented woman I've ever worked with. Lisa rocks! At our walk through she asked questions I hadn't even thought about (and I'm generally a very detail oriented person). She had set-up/logistical suggestions off the top of her head that were better than I had come up with in a year. She was always prompt in responding to my many emails and never once made me feel like I was bothering her. The confidence I had in her made me feel like I had a safety net below me as I walked the tight rope of wedding planning. Then, the day of the wedding, she arrived for set-up before I was even awake! She had definately paid close attention to all of my instructions because everything looked as though she was in my head and saw everything exactly as I had intended. Due to some adlibbing on the part of our officiant, and meanering family members during pictures we were running behind, but she kept everything moving until the very end. My drunk family members ended up being less than helpful with tear-down, but she never complained. Also very importantly, my other vendors felt taken care of and thought she did a great job. Run, don't walk, to hire Bellissima Vita for your wedding. You will be sooo thrilled that you did!
