Hannah’s Big Day!

Over this past weekend, I got the pleasure of hanging out with Hannah and her bridal party while they got ready for the day.

It feels like it was just yesterday when I was in beauty school. I was working on the clinic floor when in came this young, very blonde, high school girl to have her hair styled. For those that haven’t been in beauty school, sometimes you can make appointments and other times you get walk-in clients. How lucky was I that Hannah came to sit in my chair. I was styling for her Prom that day and have had many fun times stylist her hair since.

When Hannah told me, a few years later that she and her now husband Richard had gotten engaged I was so happy for her. When she asked me to style her hair for the big day I felt lucky all over again. 

Finally the big day arrived. I traveled to Hannah’s new house to celebrate with she and her friends before the walk down the aisle. She had decided to wear her very long hair in an updo. She also wanted to wear a flower and a veil.

Katie, one of her two maids of honor, also wanted to wear an updo. She asked me to have two braids along each side of her head.

Finally, the other Maid of Honor, Mary asked for a classic updo with lots of volume.

I am often asked if I remember things about the many weddings I get to be a part of and I can always recall a special detail. Sometimes because the bride chose a particularly beautiful hair style, or wore a unique gown. I will remember this day because even though I met her by luck of the draw, Hannah is a good friend to me now  and it has been my pleasure to be there for her on many big days in her life.  Thank you Hannah for choosing me to be a small part of this very special day. I look forward to seeing all the good times ahead! Congratulations!
