Linda and Cindy did a fantastic job with our makeup and hair - and they were so personable from the moment they walked in! Linda really knows her makeup and I trusted her every recommendation and we all looked fantastic! Even my mom who wasn't going to have her makeup done, decided to get it done after seeing how natural my sister looked! Thank you Linda and Cindy!

Dear Linda----

Sue Berg from Akron, Ohio, here. I was doing some random net surfing tonight and on a whim decided to visit "A Victorian Bride" for a bit of motherly nostalgia. Imagine my complete shock and delight to seeing my Kate's beautiful face displayed so prominently on your website!!! It brought tears to my eyes! Linda, on that 2005 June (6) day you took her natural beauty and enhanced it to an even lovelier level. Whenever we look at the wedding pictures, your name always comes up with great appreciation, and with fondness. Both Kate and I very much enjoyed our time spent with you that afternoon. It was fun, and your ease with the both of us helped soothe our jitters. Kate has often said that she wished she'd been able to fly you up for the celebration party we had in Ohio in July.

That she graces your website is truly a tribute to your art. Please feel free to post this letter as part of your testimonials. No bride could do better when selecting you as a part of her wonderful, important day! Thank you so much!
Best wishes to you

Hi Linda:
Thought you might enjoy seeing some photos from the wedding. Everything went really well – the weather was great, the ceremony was outstanding (!), our hair and make up was outstanding. It was a pleasure meeting you and a joy to work with you. Should you need a reference, please feel free to use me. If you need a letter or anything like that, please ask anytime. You are a real asset to the wedding business!

Linda, how fortunate a bride is who has your service. Your gentle manner and fingertip expertise combine to make it so easy to become beautiful. Between the young and old clients, you demonstrated how easy it really is for someone to look & feel better about themselves. Over and above the skills you shared with the group of women, I want you to know how much I enjoyed getting to know you. You are a special person!

Linda, I wanted to thank you for the *FANTASTIC* make-up and hair styling you provided for my daughter and her bridal party. Everyone looked fabulous! We received many compliments at the reception on how natural the make-up
looked and how outstanding the hair styles were. A couple of these compliments came from hard to impress professional stylists who were guests. Your on sight service, along with your lovely and relaxed personality, greatly reduced all of our stress levels on the "big day". You and your staff far exceeded our expectations and really enhanced the day.

Cathy Beckman

Linda,

I don't even know where to begin to thank you! You were absolutely wonderful. My (and my mom's) hair and makeup turned out better than I could've expected and stayed put all night through a whole lot of dancing. You did a fantastic job on my niece as well. From the moment I met you, I felt like I knew you forever. Not only are you talented at what you do, but, you are personable and you go above and beyond. You were so helpful and calming. I will be highly recommending you to anyone I know having a wedding in this area. I will never forget you and all that you have done for me.

Thank you again,

Kristen Spor

Dear Leslie and Lew, (SiestaKeyWedding.com)

I just wanted to thank you for helping me pull off the best day of my life. I had an incredible time and I am glad you pushed me along my nervousness. You also made some awesome recommendations. *_I absolutely loved Linda of A Victorian Bride. She did a fabulous job, was so personable, and went above and beyond (she helped me get into my gown and even drove me to the ceremony site!!). It was like I knew her forever. _*The DJ was great, I had so much fun dancing the night away. Tom of Village Cafe was so helpful, he made delicious food, and he is so nice! Even with the few things that did go wrong (like with my brother), I still just had the best time and it was definitely a night to remember.

Thanks again,

Kristen Cooper

Dear Linda:

I just wanted to thank you again for everything you did for me on my wedding day. You saved the day by going out of your way to arrange the room at the Hilton and providing all of us with the goodies for breakfast. We all had so much fun with you and Linda both. I was just so impressed with how much personal attention you gave to me. I felt like you and I had been friends for years and you were just doing my hair and make-up for me and my friends.

Everyone's make-up and hair was absolutely beautiful. My mom felt so special and was so excited and happy to have everything done for her as well. I could not believe how different and original you styled everyone's hair. It was perfect. It matched everyone's personality and style. Everyone at the wedding was commenting on how beautiful all of the bridemaid's looked and my mother and especially me. The make-up was flawless. The extra touch on my eyelashes was the talk of the wedding. No one could take their eyes off my eyes.

One of the groomsmen--whose wife was one of the bridesmaids just kept talking about how beautiful his wife looked. He could not stop starring at her and commenting about how her make-up really accented her beautiful eyes.

I thought I was going to really stress out when the church wouldn't let us have the room to get ready in...but you did really save the day. I can't thank you enough. I felt like a movie star at my own wedding with how beautiful you made me.

I can't wait to see you again. I know my friends and I will use you again on a special occasion or just to brighten up our day.

You are wonderful and special and I will recommend you to everyone I meet.

Thank you again Linda.

P.S. I still don't have my pictures yet but I will get some to you as soon as possible.

P.S.S. I wanted to thank you for doing my make-up and hair for my bridal photo session too. I was sick as a dog and you would never know it by looking at the pictures. You are magic. : )

Courtney Craig

Linda and her team made getting ready for my friends wedding (12-15-07) an enjoyable and relaxing experience. It was so easy having her in our hotel room while we were able to relax and sip champagne while getting our hair and makeup done. My husband loved my hair and my makeup lasted until I washed it off at 2am!

I highly recommend using A Victorian Bride for your special day!

Nicole Kaney

Hello Linda,

Thanks a lot for all you did in making my wedding day a great one! Andy was amazed at how stunning I looked. He had a tear in his eye. I will definitely recommend you to others. You did a superior job. I knew just by looking at your album that you would be perfect. I thank you very much, and I appreciate your services and you have a great personality. You made me feel relaxed and comfortable.

Colleen Bliss (VanDyke)

Linda, just wanted to let you know what a wonderful job Ashley and Samantha did on the girls for Diana's wedding last Saturday. They were fun and professional to work with. Everyone looked gorgeous, but they especially pampered the bride and she looked spectacular. When we get the pictures I'll forward them to you.

Again thanks for such a wonderful job. I will not hesitate to recommend A Victorian Bride to anyone.
