  • Marketing so you can find them in print advertising, on internet searches, and on social media

  • Time and energy spent emailing, talking on the phone, and communicating with you and your vendors to make sure that your day goes off without a hitch
  • The studio where you go to have the trial makeup that is the perfect place to chat about your wedding day details
  • Travel to your location on your wedding day that includes the car they drive in, the gas it takes to get them there, and the time spent driving to and from your location
