Giao Nguyen Makeup Artistry & Hair Design
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
Giao has the whole package, and I am so lucky to have found her. From the start it was such a pleasure to work with her, and from my trial I knew I was going to book her for my wedding day. I booked Giao for my hair and the 5 other girls in our wedding. On the morning of my wedding Giao arrived early to my parent's house in San Francisco, CA, and she was all setup and ready to go on time. Giao was very flexible with the hairstyle I wanted, because the style that I chose for my trial was different than the one I picked on the day of. I was so happy with the way my hair turned out, and it's all thanks to Giao. All of the girls in my wedding party loved their hair too. My mom kept on complimenting the wonderful job Giao had done, and my mom is hard to please (love you mom =)). So, on the day of my wedding it had to be one of the hottest days, and my wedding was located in San Jose, CA. First of all, my hair is naturally straight, and it does not hold well when styled. However, Giao is magical and my hair stayed in tact the whole night, including the curls. To go along with my beautiful hair, Giao also made me a custom floral hair clip. I received so many compliments on it, and I love it because I can keep it forever and use it for other special occasions. You cannot go wrong with Giao. She very talented, professional, easy to work with and the sweetest.

Ceremonies and Celebrations
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
Prior to our wedding we met with Irene twice. Once to go over our ceremony plans and to get to know each other. Then the next time to finalize the details of our ceremony. Besides meeting in person, Irene was great at responding to our emails/questions. With Irene we were able to customize our ceremony, and make it our own. The words, stories and personal touch that Irene put together for our ceremony will be cherished in our memories for years to come. The day of our wedding, Irene made sure to check in on both of us before the ceremony started, and she also was able to meet some of our wedding party too. For the ceremony, we were so pleased with how it turned out, and Irene also handled/processed our paperwork for us on timely manner. I would definitely recommend Irene!

Junshien International Photographers
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
For us photography was really important for our wedding. I knew about Junshien through his blog, and followed his work for several years. Even before I was engaged. Although, once the wedding plans started for me, Junshien was the first person we contacted/booked, and for me it was given that he would be our photographer. Junshien's passion, love for photography and creativity shines through him as a person and through his amazing work.
