"Absolute. Best. Wedding. Decision. BACKSTORY: Wedding beauty research was stressful for me. I have had a few major "misses" with professional beauty styling in the past. I was so overwhelmed by research that I finally booked JK on gut instinct. As soon as I spoke to Jennifer on the phone, I knew I was in the right hands. PROCESS: Jennifer herself was booked for my wedding date, so I got to work with her team members Jenny (makeup) and Dina (hair). Jennifer runs her business with incredible professionalism. As my main point of contact, she was always quick to respond and took full accountability for every detail. She put together a seamless schedule, including another hairstylist at a second location for my fiance's family. TRIAL: The team put me at ease and nailed my vision on the first try! WEDDING DAY: Everyone NAILED it. Jennifer came to check in, which she did not need to do. My hair was...flawless. Dina worked in a heavy piece of hair jewelry, which I didn't have at my trial. My hair held up late into the night, yet was ridiculously easy to take down. Jenny gave me a classic look that still felt soft and romantic—and the lashes felt like nothing all day! I was blown away by how my makeup "stay put" through 12+ hours. Not the slightest smudge or under-eye residue. BOTTOM LINE: Jennifer Kinford is a beauty expert and a first-rate professional, and her entire team follows suit. I have NEVER felt more beautiful. My bridesmaids were equally thrilled. All of these ladies are true talents and total pros. THANK YOU!! - Kate C

"I cannot say enough about how happy I am with Jennifer and her team! I instantly felt confident that I was in good hands after meeting Jennifer. She and her team are so professional and warm and really listened. I was not a bride who knew exactly what she wanted, but Jennifer was able to give great advice. I felt like a model on my wedding day! She and her team made everyone getting their hair and make up done feel beautiful. (Including my 87 year old grandmother, future mother in law who NEVER wears make up and niece who felt self conscious about her skin.) Jennifer helped me make a schedule for the day and was open to my feedback. She was on schedule and nothing felt rushed so everyone felt so relaxed getting ready. She uses the BEST products and leaves you with a touch up kit... although my make up was so flawless I didn't need it. I very highly recommend J Kinford Beauty Group. I would rate her more than 5 stars if that was an option!" Amy T

"Jennifer is the best there is!! She did my wedding makeup (along with my bridal party) and she was easily one of the best vendors to work with. She made me look and feel stunning (despite a near breakdown with my hair from another vendor...once my makeup was complete, I no longer cared about my hair because of how great her work made me feel). My entire bridal party, particularly my mom and mother in law also could not stop talking about their makeup and how great Jennifer was. In addition to her amazing work, Jennifer was always professional, responsive, comforting and overall just so easy to work with. Lastly, Jennifer kindly fit in my 94 year old Grandma for some blush and lip color at the last minute and made her feel and look beautiful as well. I can't thank her enough! She was one of the best choices I made throughout the entire wedding process." Megan M

"Jennifer and her super star team are not only the most talented hair and makeup artists you will come across, but they are also the most kind, patient, and fun-loving people as well! Choosing a hair and makeup group for my wedding was something that I wanted to take great care in doing, because I knew that the people who performed these services would be a huge part of the energy and tone of the day. Jennifer (the owner of the business) was absolutely amazing, even speaking with me over FaceTime to get to know one another before I booked. After talking with her and hearing about her process, it was clear that I had found the best of the best! My makeup trial with her further proved that I had made the best possible choice. Through the trial, I saw her high standard of cleanliness, her careful consideration of products, and most of all the artistry of her work. She truly enhanced my natural look to the highest level and brought out my best features. My hair trial with Gaby was the exact same experience. It was clear how experienced she was, and we spent the whole time laughing and joking. The thing that I was most thankful for at the end of the experience was the patience of Jennifer and her team (Gaby and Erin) leading up to the wedding and on the day of the wedding. From making multiple schedule drafts, to patiently adjusting and changing makeup and hair on the day of the wedding, Jennifer and her team could not have been more wonderful. Jennifer and her team kept me laughing and joking the whole time which was an incredible help to keep my anticipation and nerves at bay. I can truly say that I have never felt more beautiful than I did on my wedding day. Most importantly, my hair and makeup stayed ABSOLUTELY PERFECTLY THE ENTIRE AFTERNOON AND NIGHT IN 95 DEGREE WEATHER! This is something you MUST seek out as a bride! Jennifer is a true artist who has the most kind, generous, and patient demeanor. I am so thankful I got to spend the morning with her and her team on the most important day of my life!" Ashley T

"Jennifer was absolutely incredible and by far one of my favorite vendors I worked with during the wedding planning process. At my trial, we discussed how I wanted a more natural look and she completely nailed it. I still looked like me, but a much more glamorous version of me which is exactly what I wanted. She also made my bridesmaids look incredible and was so great working with my mother who never wears make up! In addition to the fabulous work she does, she is extremely responsive, punctual and so personable! I highly recommend Jennifer!" Laura B

"Jennifer is truly the best. She is extremely talented and professional. Jennifer and I spoke many times between the booking, trial and of course the big day. She was always available and answered all my questions very promptly. My Mom had the same experience with her as well.... Read More Jennifer knows A LOT about skincare and makeup. She taught me a lot before the wedding day. On the wedding day, Jennifer stayed longer than the hair stylist and was the one to place MY VEIL into my hair. This is real dedication. Jennifer cares about her brides, brides' families and bridal party. We've kept in touch since the wedding and will continue to do so because she's come a FRIEND. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!" Leigh K
