Hello out there!

It has been a long while since I have been able to sit down and share with you some fun stories and photos from wedding season 2015! What a year it was! Here are a few stories and pictures from the year. I can’t seem to find photos of every single bride I was lucky to meet, but trust me, it was a year full of beautiful hair!

The season started for me in February with Ashley and Michelle’s wedding.  It snowed like crazy on Ashley’s big day but she was a beautiful bride! I did not style Michelle’s pretty short hair, but her bridesmaids were pretty amazing. It was wonderful to be a part of that day.

In April I got to meet the lovely Marissa. At her trial, we practiced a style with her hair all down and curled. On the day of the wedding, she decided to where an updo. I loved it!


Kathryn, Andrea, Lauren, Shannon, and Melissa were my May brides this year. I loved the sparkling headband worn by Kathryn and the giant flower worn by Lauren was really breathtaking! Shannon had my favorite half up/half down style for the year. She looked amazing! My wonderful friend Melissa was the final bride for the month.

June proved to be a super rainy month for my brides. But even with all of the not so fun weather, these brides shined through and chose some pretty styles. Stephanie’s updo was super soft and Jackie’s vintage look was one of my favorites. Maureen had lots of texture and Blair’s beautiful long hair was show stopping in a half up style.





Michelle and Amy were my only two brides for the whole month of July. While I can’t seem to find a pic of Amy, here is a pic of the braided updo that Michelle wore!


August was so busy! Tiffany, Casey, Laura and Erica all wore their long hair in half up/half down styles.  So pretty and each unique. I loved the double braid in Jen’s updo. I was lucky to style for several parts of Hina’s wedding celebration. This was a crazy busy but very fun month!







September was busy too! Michelle had one of my favorite looks for the year. I am a sucker for a cage veil! I also got to style a few times for Nabihah during her wedding weekend. I don’t have any photos from Lori’s big day, but I remember that she and her bridal party were so nice! Heather’s headband looked perfect with her soft curls.




October is always my favorite month as I am a former October bride myself. Justina changed things up on her wedding day and instead of wearing the low updo we practiced at the trial, went for a much higher updo that I loved. Nicole also had an amazing updo, while Eleni and Hayley went for long curls. Unfortunately, I don’t have any photos from Abbey’s big day but let me tell you, she was the most calm and sweet bride.




The final month of wedding season 2015 was November. Lauren, Janaya and Liz were the November brides. Lauren’s family were amazing to spend time with. I wish I had photos of all of their hair but I can’t find any! Janaya’s Oglebay wedding was fun. Her updo was the best! These pics do not do it justice. Final bride of the year was Liz. If there was an award for “Most Laid Back” Liz would win hands down. It was the perfect day to wrap up an amazing wedding season.



I am so thankful to have the best job ever working with the best brides. I am lucky to get to be a small part of a big day for these lovely ladies. I’m sure that some of these brides were stressed but they all were beautiful. Thank you to each and every one of you for choosing me to be a part of your day. Happy New Year to you all and may your marriage be as fun and as beautiful as your wedding day.

I am so excited with 2016 approaching to see what the wedding season will hold for me. I am looking forward to meeting and getting to know each of the brides-to-be as they get ready for their big day.

Happy new year and all the best wishes to all of you! ❤ ❤



Emily’s Big Day!

I was contacted by Bridesmaid Annie just a few short weeks ago. She was helping her sister wrap up the last few details leading up to Emily’s wedding day. The bride and I met just last week to do a trial run of her hair.

For the special day, she decided to wear her hair gather to the right and have curls fall down over her shoulder. She was also planning on wearing a cage veil and a small sparkling barrette. I absolutely loved the way it turned out.

I also got to style all of her bridal party. Here are a few photos of their hair styles as well.

It was really nice to spend time with these ladies as they were getting ready for the ceremony. Thank you to Emily for letting me be a small part of such a big day.

Lynetta’s Big Day

Yesterday was my friend Lynetta’s wedding day. She and I have known each other since 3rd grade. Like many people do, we lost touch for several years but thanks to the wonders of social media, we reconnected about 5 years ago. When she told me that she and Jeremy had gotten engaged I was thrilled! I was honored when she asked me to be involved in her special day by styling her hair and makeup.

Since the wedding was to take place in Columbus, OH and she had recently moved to Boston, MA, there was no time for us to get together for a trial run of her hair. So through the past year we have talked, mostly through emails and Facebook, discussing exactly what she did and did not want for her wedding day style.
When the big day finally arrived, she decided that she wanted subtle Victory Rolls to bring an element of vintage to the day. I curled the back of her hair for lots of volume and the swooped her bangs to one side.


To finish the look, she chose to wear a cage veil.


Lynetta is a wonderful person and I am lucky to call her my friend. I am very thankful to have been there to celebrate with her on the day that she married such a great guy. I wish for them all the love and fun in the world! Thanks again Netta, for letting me be part of your big day.  ❤

Alexis: Trial

In the beginning on April I was contacted by Alexis as she was searching for a stylist for her September wedding. I was pretty excited to meet with her early this week to try out the style that she had in mind.

Alexis had shared with me some photos of her beautiful wedding dress and told me a few of the ideas that she had for her hair. When we finally met we discussed wearing her hair pulled low on the right side with a curly bun to hold the large flower and cage veil.


For her makeup she wanted a dramatic look but wanted to keep with neutral tones.



I am very happy to be the stylist for Alexis’ big day and I look forward to seeing her again in a few weeks!
