To give Ashley and her team 5 out of 5 stars would not come close to bestowing the accolades that they deserve.

As someone who is artistically challenged when it comes to makeup, I was in desperate need of someone to beautify me for my wedding. My first encounter with Ashley, in the comfort of my own home in Plainfield, fulfilled everything I had expected and surpassed even my crucially “type A” expectations.  From start to finish, my first appointment was friendly, professional, and unexpectedly… super fun!  Ashley was super accommodating to my last minute request to use my wedding trial as my makeup for my first bridal shower and it was flawless.  So impeccably done, that not only did I book her to do my entire wedding party of 12, but I also asked her to do my makeup for my 2nd shower!  The morning of my wedding, I expected chaos, and to my delight and surprise, Ashley and her team had everyone running like a well oiled machine.  All of my bridesmaids, my mother-in-law, my mother, and myself, were all perfectly primped and ready to go with ample time for putting our dresses on and taking photographs.  I know how stressful planning a wedding can be and how many different vendors you look at daily, trying to make sure you are making the right decision for the biggest and best day of your life, but I can assure you, your beauty needs end here.  I have, and will continue to, recommend Ashley to everyone I know!! – Susan

I am so happy with how it turned out I really cannot thank you enough!

Ashley, I wanted to send you a belated ‘thank you’ being a part of my wedding and doing the makeup for myself, my four bridesmaids, and my mother. We were all STUNNED by your incredible skills as we were all continually complimented on our makeup before and after the wedding ceremony because you did such a beautiful job! I wiped away many happy tears throughout the night and my makeup never once smeared or smudged! Nor did I even need a touch-up! I am so happy with how it turned out I really cannot thank you enough! I am most definitely going to spread the word about Sweet Violets Wedding and recommend you to anyone that is looking for makeup services! Your love and passion for makeup truly shows in your work! Thanks again for being so kind and easy to work with, especially in the midst of crazy wedding planning! Xo, Tara

I was surprised how little I had to tell her for her to know what I was envisioning!

Ashley did an amazing job on my wedding hair and makeup! I recommend her without any hesitation – she was fabulous! I had trouble finding a stylist/makeup artist who was the right fit. (I wanted someone who was down to earth – and someone who didn’t have terrifying “before and after” photos or crazy minimum requirements.) After many phone calls I asked my Facebook friends for help. Someone I went to college recommended Ashley. I viewed her portfolio, loved it, and decided to schedule a trial. From the beginning, Ashley was extremely communicative and responded to my messages quickly. When I met her for the trial, it was a fun and easygoing experience, unlike many other wedding-related things which created stress. I brought one of my bridesmaids, and we all chatted while Ashley worked. I was surprised how little I had to tell her for her to know what I was envisioning – she knows what she’s doing!

On my wedding day, Ashley did my hair and makeup, and Ashely and her assistant Maggie worked together to do the hair and makeup of my bridal party, mom, and sister. Though we started very early, the whole morning was so relaxing and fun. It was like having extra friends in the room rather than two stranger vendors. They managed the time well, and no one felt rushed. What I liked most was that everyone walked out feeling beautiful and like themselves. My hair and makeup stayed all day – throughout the night people asked me how my hair was staying so perfectly in place. You can tell from photos that Ashley’s work is excellent. Please let me speak for her client service, professionalism, and sweet personality. I made the right choice by having Sweet Violets be a part of my day. Thank you, Ashley for glamming all of us up and making us feel beautiful!

PS That was the only updo I’ve had in my life (since my first one for my 8th grade formal) that didn’t hurt my scalp by the end of the night. Seriously. Thank you!-Michelle

To say that Ashley is AMAZING is an understatement!

To say that Ashley is AMAZING is an understatement! I was referred to Ashley by my maid of honor who attended High School with her.  I was in a frantic search for Hair/Makeup services after my trials for both hair and makeup with other companies had gone horribly.  Not only was I upset about my previous trials, but I was also skeptical that anyone would be able to deliver to my specific wants.  When I reached out to Ashley, she was confident that she would be able to provide me with all my wedding days needs.  She was understanding and sensitive to my bad experiences and made sure to listen attentively to everything I was looking for.  Boy did she deliver! Ashley and her team were punctual, professional, and soooo sweet!  I will definitely be using/recommending Sweet Violet Weddings for any future events! Thank you so much! – Christina

She has this knack for knowing exactly what I want and executing it perfectly.

When I got engaged, a friend of mine highly recommended Ashley for my wedding hair and makeup.  I am so glad she did because that recommendation introduced me to the hairdresser of my dreams!  Let me just say that meeting new people gives me major anxiety; but from the moment I first spoke with Ashley she made me feel comfortable and at ease.  It was as if we had been friends for years.  That feeling carried on through my hair and makeup trial, my wedding day and still continues to this day.  Ashley is so very talented, professional, knowledgeable, and easy to work with.  She has this knack for knowing exactly what I want and executing it perfectly.  She made me feel so gorgeous on my wedding day.  My hair and makeup was everything I hoped it would be and my bridesmaids looked stunning!  I will forever cherish how amazing she was on that day and the wonderful friendship that has grown from it.  – Shannon

She knows all the tips and tricks to make you look good.

I simply cannot say enough wonderful things about Ashley and her hair services. Ashley did the hair for my wedding, along with my 6 bridesmaids, and everyone could not stop raving about how awesome all of our hairstyles looked! From the beginning to the end Ashley was extremely professional, polite, so easy to communicate with, and someone you can truly tell LOVES what she does! She knows all the tips and tricks to make you look good. For someone who has pretty thin hair, not enough of it, and has a hard time getting it to take a curl, Ashley somehow worked her magic and made me look like I had volumes of curls that lasted all night long! I have recommended Ashley and her services to everyone, she is SO ridiculously talented at what she does, and it comes so naturally to her. She is an absolute delight to work with and I am so thrilled with how amazing my hair and bridesmaids hair turned out! – Christina R.
