Shannon's Testimonial

After my initial booking with another hair & makeup vendor completely fell apart a little over a month before our wedding, I found myself scouring The Knot and Yelp looking for a well-reviewed, talented hair and makeup artist or artists who still had availability so close to our wedding date. After several “we aren’t available on your date” emails, Sarah Anne (the owner of Beauty Bespoken) responded to my inquiry in a jiffy, and before I knew it we had a hair and makeup trial scheduled for the following week. After meeting Sarah Anne (who would be doing makeup) and Kayti (who would be doing hair) and seeing the beautiful work that they both did (Sarah Anne was able to cover up a nasty breakout with ease, and Kayti completed a gorgeous braided up-do in what seemed like no time at all), I knew that Beauty Bespoken was the right fit for me and my girls! Booking with Sarah Anne was a breeze, and whenever I had a question or concern leading up to the wedding, she was quick to respond. 

Flash forward to the day of the wedding. Sarah Anne and Kayti arrived to our location early, and were all set up before I even arrived. They would be completing hair and makeup for myself and 4 of my bridesmaids. As each girl sat with Sarah Anne and Kayti, you could tell they instantly felt comfortable and at ease. Sarah Anne and Kayti worked with each girl to create a look that they loved based in inspo photos, and when each girl got to look in the mirror after Sarah Anne and Kayti worked their magic you could tell they were blown away. The same can be said for me - everything I loved about my trial was recreated perfectly for my wedding day. Moreover, having Kayti, Sarah Anne, and Sarah Anne’s mom (who worked as an assistant for the day) with us as we got ready made the morning even more fun; it felt like all of us were long time friends who and known each other forever as we spent most of the morning laughing, something that I definitely appreciated as a nervous bride.

Looking back at all the photos from our night, all of the girls looked absolutely radiant from the start of the night to the end. Sarah Anne’s Makeup highlighted all of the beautiful and unique features of each girl; the makeup did not look heavy, it was not clown makeup that I often see on brides and bridesmaids, it was natural and perfect. Turns out, having my initial booking fall through was a HUGE blessing, and having Beauty Bespoken as a part of my big day was meant to be. Any time I have a friend looking for hair and makeup for their wedding, or for any other special event, I will wholeheartedly recommend Beauty Bespoken.
