“The reviews are true! Alan is the consummate professional. I live on the East Coast but got married in Sonoma, CA, so I chose Alan based solely on online reviews. We met for the first time on my wedding day! I am not usually this laid back, but I just had a good Alan was punctual and professional. He has a pleasant demeanor and inspires both confidence and calmness. In the months leading up to the wedding, we spoke a couple times by phone and trade a few e-mails. He was responsive but not pushy or diva-like. All I told him was not to make me look like a drag queen. (Let’s face it, we’ve all seen terrible wedding makeup.) My makeup was gorgeous. I don’t typically wear a lot of makeup, so I was afraid it might be too much, but Alan has great technique and applied and blended it perfectly. It came out very natural-looking. I got so many compliments at the wedding, specifically about my make-up! Highly recommended”. ~ Grace T. more >> wedding makeup reviews
