Absolutely Amazing!


Gosh, I cannot say enough wonderful things about FBJ Weddings! First and foremost, Joy, the owner, was an absolute pleasure to work with and made the whole process so easy. She was extremely flexible during the pandemic as we had to reschedule our wedding twice. I was fortunate enough to be paired with Alicia as my main hair and makeup stylist. She was extremely patient and listened to my vision. Man, is this chick talented. I absolutely LOVED my look during the trial and even more so on my wedding day!

On the wedding day, Alicia and Megan took the time to make each one of my bridesmaids, MOG and my husband’s sister look absolutely stunning! They were extremely professional, clean/safe (in regards to COVID specifically) and such a good time in the bridal suite! Our hair and makeup didn’t budge all night which is extremely impressive! I could not have asked for a better experience for my wedding! Thank you FBJ Weddings!
