Alexa contacted me back in February when she was searching for an on-location stylist for her June 16, 2012 wedding. In many of her emails she mentioned that she was having a garden wedding and wanted her hair style to reflect that. After meeting with her for the trial I was really excited for the big day to arrive.

On the day of the ceremony I arrived early to begin styling for Alexa and her bridal party. The bride wanted to have lots of curls and texture incorporated throughout the style. She also wanted some of the hair to fall down on her right shoulder. After twisting and pinning the curls I completed the look with a beautiful white, dried flower that her husband-to-be helped to pick out. Above the flower she wore a great hair pin with two birds and between them was a blue stone.

 

Missy, one of the bridesmaids was next to be styled. She wanted to keep all of her hair up in the back and a deep side part in the front. I curled all of it in large barrel curls then weaved them all around each other.

The next member of the bridal party was Kate. She wanted to leave the bulk of her hair down for the day. After curling all of it I took the two sides and braided them loosely then pinned her long bangs back so her hair would be out of her face. Her style was finished by also wearing a pretty dried flower tucked into one of the braids.

The final bridesmaid of the day was Alexis. Her hair was pretty short but she wanted to wear it all up with a lot of volume. I teased the bulk of her hair and smoothed it to the back. Then using the bottom length of her hair I twisted and pinned to create little flips to keep the hair off of her neck.

 

I love when I get to spend the day with a tight group of friends like these ladies. It not only makes my job fun but very easy to do. Thanks to Alexa for choosing me to be there as the stylist.
