Earlier this year I published a rundown of some of my favorite Colorado Wedding Vendors. But in case the preview left you wanting to know more about these amazing women (yes, all the vendors on my list are women), I’m taking the time to do some more in depth introductions to these talents.
Janie Rocek – Hair, Make-up, and Style
**Note, Janie has gotten out of the wedding business since this feature was published**
To start things off, I’d like to introduce you to Janie Rocek, a super talented hair and make-up artist who doubles as a stylist and blogger.
You can follow her on IG here.
I think Janie’s site gives a perfect intro, so I’ll let her speak for herself:
Hi, I’m Janie. Last name pronounced Row-check. I am an artist, stylist, and designer. Hair, makeup, wardrobe, props, and more. If I don’t have a makeup brush or a curling iron in my hand, you might find me in a ball cap with a paint brush in one hand and a power tool in the other.
I am a national freelance artist based out of Northern Colorado & Denver. I provide products and services for weddings, events, commercial, editorial, and lifestyle with the following experience…

How long have you been in business? What made you decide to get into the wedding industry?
Thirteen years. I love styling!
What is your favorite part of owning your own business?
The flexibility [of the schedule] and teaching my daughter.
Who is your ideal client? Who inspires you in your work?
[My ideal client is] one who can share with me her lifestyle and wedding style and then let me run with matching the hair and makeup based on my knowledge and expertise. I love it when she has an idea of what she wants but doesn’t put me in a box. When that comes together, magic happens!
My eight year old daughter definitely inspires me, as well as nature, art, and lifestyle. I love the detailed works of artists such as Ulyana Aster, Linda Hallbergs, Kandee Johnson, Pat McGrath, and Georgiy Kot. But my style tends to be more organic and free these days.
Describe the process of working with you. How would a couple interact with you from start to finish?
Visit janierocek.com/weddings. Poke around to see if you think we’d be a good fit. Reach out to me through the contact form or direct email and I’ll get back to you with pricing and other important information. If that all looks good, we will have a consultation over the phone or over coffee. A detailed contract will be written out to review, deposit will be taken, date will be locked in, yay!
From then, its a bridal trial run at my studio (if wanted). We keep it chill and fun but I want to make sure you feel completely comfortable and confident before you leave me that day. I document everything for the wedding day reference and to look back on in case either of us wants to make any changes.
Then come the wedding day! I/ we (my team) want to blend in or add to the setting, never stand out or take away from the atmosphere of your day. We are always ready to have run with you and your crew and are trained to work fast and efficient. We are totally flexible, but we’ll work hard to keep you on schedule to eliminate any unneeded stress. We make sure wants, needs, and desires are met before we leave!
