Caridad was very easy to work with, she answered questions clearly by e-mail and had a set game plan for coordinating both the trial and day of wedding. She was honest about which styles she thought would work with my hair length, and I thought the trial I did ~2 months before the wedding was an accurate representation of the look for the wedding day. Makeup looked great and stayed put x several hours. She also pampered my mom a lot, which was important to me. You can probably find someone cheaper, but I think the quality and organization Caridad brings to the table is worth it, especially if you are planning a destination wedding.
