Words cannot even begin to describe the amazing experience I had with Valentine Bride! There is SO much pressure on the bride to pick their hair & makeup artist for their special day! There were other artists that my venue, Perona Farms had recommended. I reached out to all of their preferred vendors for hair and makeup and either the customer service wasn’t what I was hoping for as a bride or they just never returned my calls or emails. Tanja had made it very easy since the first time I had reached out to her as she responded so quickly with pricing, availability and trial dates.  That being said I immediately put the deposit down to book my trial! The trial was a blast going through inspiration images and working with her experience to get more creative with my selections. I didn’t have an idea on the makeup I just explained how I was imagining the day and she took it from there! As fun as Tanja is to talk to, the moment I turned and looked into the mirror I was speechless. I FELT LIKE A BRIDE! She was so thorough with taking pictures inside and outside of my hair and makeup so she could replicate it exactly on my big day! I knew after the trial that I could not only picture anyone else doing my hair and makeup, but I couldn’t imagine anyone else I would want to share my girl time with the morning of my wedding. The day of the wedding came and she was able to accommodate all of the requests, all my girls (My Mother, Mother In-Law, Grandmother, Bridesmaids, and Maid of Honor) looked breath taking. I was very lucky to have shared those intimate memories with Tanja & Aphrodite. I would like to thank from the bottom of my heart Valentine Bride for everything and would recommend to anyone! The website and pictures will never be able to do this business justice!

My name is Stephanie, and I had the honor and pleasure of having Tanja as my makeup and hair artist for my wedding in August for both my court and myself. Words can not even begin to describe her delicate and angelic touch and the atmosphere she brings along with her many talents.  She is an amazing woman inside and out. She listens to you, laughs with you, and I'm sure if given the opportunity she would cry with you. I knew the vision I wanted for my makeup an hair but wasn't able to verbally communicate it as well as I thought. After having been to three stylists I knew Tanja was the one. Most stylists rush you, and also don't listen. They take over and assume they're doing you a favor and promise you the day of the wedding it'll look 10 times nicer than in the trial. NOT TANJA! She gives you the exact look for your wedding on the day of the trial; therefore, giving the bride the confidence and assurance that she made the right choice. I truly felt like a princess, and the best part about it is that it lasted ALL DAY!!  So for those who are contemplating airbrush vs powder makeup I recommended airbrush. Tanja has the ability to make you look beautiful but most importantly natural.

Seriously you and the girls are insanely talented! People were saying you did magical work! The amount of compliments and requests for your information was insane.  Everyone was so sweet and fun and made the whole getting ready experience so easy! We all love love loved how everything came out! We all felt so beautiful and natural and glam! Love them! Highly reccomended! We've never had better hair/makeup! Thank you so so much for going above and beyond and making us all look beautiful!

There are not enough words to express how thankful I am for Tanja and her team. Tanja is professional, genuine, and her love for her craft shines. Her team is also lovely and very personable. I had a fairly large bridal party who all looked absolutely stunning. My bridesmaids, flower girls, my mom and husband’s mom were all beyond thrilled with their hair and makeup. Our photographers were also very thankful that we were all done with time to spare. As the bride, there are so many emotions the day of. Tanja’s calm and gentle energy helped to ease any anxiety I felt about how I pictured I would look on our special day.  I couldn’t have been happier with my hair and makeup; it was everything I had hoped for and more. It was the first time in my life that I felt truly beautiful and that confidence radiated in our wedding photos. I strongly recommend Valentine Bride to any bride. Thank you to Tanja, her team and the furbabies for the best experience a bride could have!

“Tanja was awesome! First of all she was so fun to meet. She did an awesome job accommodating to my bridal party’s many different styles/types of hair. We all loved the way our hair and makeup turned out. She was really great at adjusting my look to reach exactly what I wanted. She brings a calm presence to the day and I highly recommend you use her services!  I did a lot of research on who would be a good match for my personal style as well as the best decision economically. I found that Tanja’s pricing was an amazing deal considering her talents and what she was able to do. Go for the trial first so you can connect with her and figure out what you are looking for on your big day

Tanja, by far was the best decision I had made when it came to planning my wedding. She made us all feel so comfortable and relaxed all morning before the Ceremony. She made my vision of hair and makeup come true for all my bridesmaids and my mother. What I loved most about Tanja's work was her vision and the outcome of my hair and makeup. She listens to what you want and succeeds it. I had a slight change in how I wanted my hair the day of my wedding and she helped me out to make my hair look exactly how I wanted it to look. I was really unsure of how I wanted my makeup done, yet she made me feel and look amazing. I will continue in recommending her to my friends and family. I am so thankful for Tanja and her work. My wedding day could have not gone any smoother.  Thanks again Tanja!

Tanja was great. After much research looking for someone in the Pa area, I was lucky enough to have found Tanja. From the beginning she was quick/ responsive and easy to work with. She managed to get my MOH, mother/ mother in law and my sister law as well as myself done and ready with plenty of time to spare before the photographer even arrived. The moms were more than thrilled with their airbrushed make up and we're taking as many selfies as a teenager lol. That in itself was worth it. But the true magic was done on my hair. Considering the down pour that occurred during the first look and the rain we chose to take photos in not once but twice! -- my limp hair held the curls much longer than I could've imagined. If you want someone who can do it all well, quickly with the plus of being super laid back and sweet --Tanja is your girl!

Tanja was a pleasure to work with. From the first time we met for my trial, I knew I was in good hands. My hair and airbrushed makeup came out flawless that day, and looked even better on my wedding day. She proceeded to make me, my mom, and my maid of honor look gorgeous. Our hair came out just as we envisioned and our makeup looked natural which is just what we wanted. Tanja kept us all calm and on schedule and contributed to the relaxed atmosphere of my wedding morning. Her creations lasted all day long, and we looked just as good at 10pm as we did at 10am. If you want a fun spirit with excellent hair and makeup skills, go see Tanja!

Tanja and her team did a phenomenal job on my wedding day. The quality and price of her services was very reasonable especially for larger wedding parties. She was also flexible for travel on the wedding day which was a huge plus. Planning for weddings can be stressful, but Tanja made the process very easy from start to finish. All communication and planning efforts were well-timed and easy to execute. I highly recommend Valentine Bride and their hair and makeup services!!

I will never forget the first time I had the pleasure of meeting Tanja.  She was doing hair and makeup for a photoshoot at my job.  I was newly engaged, and talking excitedly about my wedding plans. She asked if I had found a hair and makeup artist yet, to which I responded no.  The wedding planning gods clearly put her in my path intentionally because Tanja was the absolute perfect fit. I was worried about looking too made-up and not like myself on my wedding day, but at my trial it was clear Tanja knew how to nail the natural but glamorous look I was hoping to achieve. On the big day she had her hands full between me and my 9 bridesmaids, but she listened to what we wanted and executed each individual look perfectly.  Not only is she extremely talented in her trade,  but as a person she is an absolute gem. Tanja is the type of person where after 5 minutes of talking to her, you feel like you have been friends for years.  She is so warm and friendly and has such a calming presence, which is so important for anxious brides like me. Tanja did such a fantastic job at my wedding that my maid of honor hired her immediately for her own wedding. I cannot say enough positive things about Tanja.  I would recommend her for anyone?s big day!

Thank you Tanja! I think I must have come with 5 different hairdo pictures and I liked one thing from them all.  Tanja worked with me and came up with an original.  Something from each of them for my special day.  I booked her right away.  My ceremony was on a Saturday morning in October.  Tanja was at the B&B at 4:30am!  That's impressive!  She did my hair and makeup and hair for three of my bridesmaids.  It's just her and she can do it all.  Tanja understood my rustic theme and all my girls looked beautiful!  Tanja suggested airbrush for my makeup and it felt light, not cakey and stayed on all day!  I have asian eyes and extra long silky straight hair that does not hold curls well and it was refreshing to find someone who could work with both.  Tanja made me feel calm and beautiful! Thank you again! I will definitely refer my friends for their special day.

Tanja and her team were absolutely amazing to work with! They were extremely friendly, talented, easy-going, and flawlessly styled my wedding day hair along with the MOB and each of my 8 bridesmaids. Tanja was extremely responsive via emails and made me feel very comfortable during my trial. She sat down and discussed my vision to ensure she fully understood the design I was hoping for, and even helped me select my hair accessories from her wide array of examples. On the wedding day, Tanja far exceeded my expectations with my hair style - it actually brought tears to my eyes when I saw it! Thank you so much Tanja!!!
