Here is what some previous couples had to say…
“Yes! Highly recommend! Lemme tell you about them…
I found Ever After Beauty less than one month before my wedding. One month! Everywhere I looked seemed to be lacking, have poor customer service, or just not a good fit. But then I talked to Ashley. Ashley answered a million questions I had, some of them twice. She was patient, kind, and passionate. We scheduled a trial run with my MoH, mom, and bonus mom. I wasn’t disappointed. Both Ashley and Yailene worked hard to make sure we were all happy. This became an easy “yes!” Fast forward to the wedding day…
These girls were amazing! They were kind and worked hard ALL day. I mean, really hard. Past any expectations. I’ve never felt as beautiful as I did that day, but still felt like I looked like “me.” My girls, mom, and bonus moms all looked beautiful as well. Ashley and Yailene were kind, talented, and client-focused. I felt like a princess. They made the day so much easier!
I am so glad I waited until then because they were terrific. Happy bride! 🙂 I can’t thank these girls enough and already know that if I need hair/makeup in the future, I’m calling them! ❤️” – Maddy H., Bridlewood Ranch
“I honestly don’t know where to start! After searching and going to several different trials that ended in disappointment, I was referred to Ashley, and she came to ME!
I spoke with her about some concerns I have (my hair is EXTREMELY thin) I told Ashley that in previous trials with other stylists they had told me that my hair was TOO thin for the style I wanted on my wedding day. I was willing to try different styles at that point.. and I remember, Ashley reassured me that having thin hair wouldn’t be a problem at all! and told me “I will come to you as many times and do as many hairstyles and makeup looks as you want and need until we find one that you love.” 10 months later and I can still remember the relief I felt from those words. It made all the difference to me!
There is no doubt that she loves what she does, and her work is beautiful! Her energy is amazing She has such a happy, uplifting spirit, and she and her team are super talented! Thank you again for everything!!” – Jasmine M., The Royal Crest Room
“I am THRILLED with Ashley and her team at Ever After Beauty. She was flexible, attentive, and made my vision a reality on my special day. She made me and my bridesmaids feel beautiful!
Ashley worked quickly but the results were perfect. I was especially impressed by her time management skills as she worked on 7 girls on the morning of my wedding. Trust me, when it’s a day you are bound to remember forever, you want a team that makes the experience as pleasant as possible to counteract any stress or anxiety involved during prep. I was pleased with how our makeup and hair turned out but I was even more impressed with how comfortable and stress-free she made the entire experience.” – Danielle P., Lake Mary Events Center
