“For as long as I can remember, I have had a love affair with hair and makeup. Anyone who sat still long enough fell victim to my hairbrush, pins, ribbons, and curling tools.
Weddings and fairytales have always been a favorite. I used to put on my grandmother's ruffled slip and pretend I was getting married to my stuffed animals over and over again.
Fast forward a million years and the love is still alive today.” -Sarah Crews

I love Sarah! I met her by accident but as Bob Ross says, it was a 'happy accident'. She is so much fun, but her work is serious. She came to the venue and did the hair of me, my 4 bridesmaids, and flower girl. We all loved her personality (be forewarned it's infectious). Her work was beautiful and I could not have been more pleased. We had done a trial a few months prior and she took all comments and concerns I had about the initial meeting and created magic on the day of. The style held up all evening with no touch-ups. I could not have been happier to have Sarah be a part of my wedding day! If you're reading this because you are looking for someone to style your hair for the big day stop reading and call her! You will not be disappointed.
"Sarah and her team were so incredible!
I knew right away when I met Sarah that I was in the right hands. With all the planning and other things that were going on for my wedding, I can honestly say that the hair and makeup became the least of my worries once I found Sarah. What I couldn't even describe myself, she intuitively knew. I felt beautiful for my wedding day. I am so happy I found this girl."
