My goal is to help you look like the best version of yourself, luminous and elegant, while still recognizable to the lucky person you are about to marry. Feeling good is so important to you actually looking good. For prepping for the wedding day it is important to keep in mind that your overall wellness- leading up to the big day is as important as the dress you choose and the person you are marrying. Whether you hire me as your makeup artist or not, I am available to work with you on healing your skin and coaching you through a program to establish a nourished body and mind as you make your way through the planning process and get to the big day.

“I have recommended Jessa to so many people I've lost count! I don't wear much makeup usually, and I was nervous about the idea of having it "done" for my wedding, but 5 minutes into my initial consultation session with Jessa I realized I had nothing to worry about. The resulting day-of look was exactly what I'd hoped for--I felt like myself, but with a little extra pizazz (and the makeup held up beautifully through a sweaty four-hour reception dance party!). And aside from being an incredible makeup artist, Jessa is also just an awesome human, with a warm, calming presence that is EXACTLY what is needed on the morning of your wedding day :). “ - Jane Silver
"When I thought about my makeup for my wedding, I realized that I didn't want someone who was only going to make me look beautiful, I wanted someone who was going to make me feel beautiful. Jessa was that person. She is not only a makeup artist, she is a people person. She is exactly who you want to be around in the hours before you get married. She is warm, friendly, and makes you feel comfortable. She exudes positive energy- contagious to those around her. Her choices in colors, styles, and application were perfect. I had a morning wedding ceremony and an evening party- she gave me two totally different looks and yet, I still looked like me. She made me (and my mom and sister) not only look more beautiful than we ever had- but more importantly, she made us feel beautiful.”- Emily Gavin
"Jessa-Thank you so much, not only for your talent, but for your unbelievably calm presence on the day of the wedding. It was so lovely to have you there with me and all my friends. you did an amazing job." - Jen Greenwood
