A couple weeks ago, I got to travel out to Prospect, PA for Maureen’s wedding at The White Barn. This venue is amazing and even through the rain, this wedding was beautifully planned!

I met with Maureen a couple months ago for a trial run. ON her wedding day we recreated a great updo for her to wear.

Happy New Year!

I hope everyone has been enjoying themselves throughout the holiday season. I wanted to share some fun stories and a few of my favorite photos from this past wedding season. It has a been a really fun and fast year and I have been lucky to share the day with just over 30 brides!

The year started with a few snow loving January brides. I got to style hair for Courtney, Sera and Lindsay on their chilly but awesome wedding days. Here is a photo of Lindsay’s awesome side swept style.

In March, I spent the day with the lovely Chaya. Her full and classic style updo was definitely one of my favorites for the year.

For the month of April, I don’t have any photos of brides to share with you because I spent most of the month hanging out with my boys. I gave birth to my second son on April 8th.

I was able to sneak out of the house in May. Mary was a super sweet bride and I was happy to style her hair!

June is always thought of as a great month for weddings. This year there were some great ones! Karen, Nicole and Karrie had great updos in mind for the walk down the aisle.

Official “wedding season” had definitely began by time I got to hang out with Jackie, Connie, Lindsay and Leslie for their July weddings. Each of these ladies were super fun. I loved the little surprises like the plate of wedding cookies from Jackie’s mom or the handmade buttons from Connie. Leslie’s carnival themed wedding was so adorable, I wanted to take it all home with me!

August has been the craziest and busiest month for at least 3 years now. Laura was a hilarious and very chill bride with amazing curly red hair. Ashley’s 7Springs wedding was also great fun. Megan’s super classy updo was perfect. I don’t know that I have ever laughed more while styling hair than I did for Jenny and her bridal party. Rhiannon and her MOH brought tears to my eyes seeing how their life long friendship made them so emotionally happy. Kristina’s hair and venue were definitely favorites of mine for this year. It was an awesome month!

Things definitely did not slow down in September. Elaina and Lynsey both chose to wear really fun updos. Molly was a fun bride and her flowing, curly style reflected that perfectly. Kris kept her style super sleek and classy while Ashley had braids and lots of texture for her rustic wedding in the park.

October weddings hold a special place in my heart being a former Oct bride myself. For Kristen, I spent the day in 7Springs, which I always love. Then, I got to style hair for a very special bride. One of my closest friend’s Jacki got married and her beautiful style was amazing! For Caitlin, she and I didn’t meet till a few hours before she walked down the aisle and I loved how her hair turned out. The final wedding for the month had me traveling to Ebensburg for Elizabeth’s awesome wedding

I only had 3 brides for November this year but Katie and Kelly both had great wedding parties and fun hair to play with! The last wedding for the month was another dear friend of mine. Dinessa’s amazing hair and fun group of friends and family will not  easily be forgotten.

Finally came the month of December. My bride Jen gets a special shout out for being so understanding. In late September, I somehow hurt my back. Well the week before Jen’s big day, my surgeon and I decided that surgery was the best way for my pain to end. So while she and I had worked out a plan at her trial, I was unable to be there for her wedding day. My great friend and talented stylist, Nikki covered for me big time as I went under the knife. Jen rolled with these changes like a true bridal champ and she looked amazing as she walked down the aisle.

2014 was a spectacular year. I consider myself so lucky to have been a part of each of these amazing wedding days. As you can see, each one was so different and that makes my job even more fun. Thank you to everyone for choosing me to be there with you. Enjoy your time as newly weds, love each other so much and always have fun!

After looking back at this year I am so excited to see what 2015 will bring!

This year on Independence Day, I got to spend the morning with awesome bride Jackie as she and her bridal party got ready for the big day!

When Jackie and I met for a trial in June, she had decided to wear her hair in bug curls with the front pinned back. On the big day, she wore a veil and a small white flower with that style.

Jackie also had a really fun bridal party. Each one of her bridesmaids choose a different updo.

Kari’s Big Day!

Near the end of February, I was contacted by Kari as she was looking for a hair stylist. I was happy to finally meet her at the beginning of this month for a trial run of her hair. Since I had been talking with her over email for 6 months, I knew that we were going to get along really well. What I love about Kari is that she really knows her personal style well. She chose not to grow her hair out for some specific updo but to keep her daily “bob” and spice that up with curls and tons of texture for her big day. To keep with the vintage style of her wedding gown, she choose to wear a fascinator with a little sparkle and lots of ivory feather on the side.

I also got to style friend Nicole’s hair. She had no idea what she wanted to do with her hair for that day, so she told me to do whatever I wanted to do. This, was very exciting! I decided to keep her hair very smooth with a updo.

Next was Matilyn. She told me about her blue dress, shoes and the blue head band with “diamonds” that she was going to wear. This 8-year-old also knew exactly what she wanted for the day. She wanted a high-placed updo with lots of curls and a deep part in the front.

Finally to end the day was friend of the bride Sarah. She also had a plan for her hair. She wanted a very high, half up style reminiscent of the 60’s era. Lots of volume on top leaving the back down with a slight flip at the ends.

I had a really great time with Kari and her friends and family before her ceremony began. Thanks again for choosing me to be a small part of you big day!

Kiki’s Big Day!

This past weekend I got pleasure of hanging out with Kiki as she prepared to walk down the aisle on her wedding day. She contacted me at the very beginning of 2012 when she was looking for a stylist. When we finally got to meet in June, I knew this day was going to be pretty fun.

With seven ladies in her bridal party we got started bright and early. Nikki came with me for this one to help keep on track. She started by styling Bridesmaid Katie. Wanting to keep most of her hair pulled back off of her face, the back was pinned up in a ponytail like updo with lots of curls.

 

I started the morning by styling for sister of the groom Lisa. I started by twisting a braid from the left side bringing her hair all over to sit directly behind her right ear. At first she wanted to leave her long hair in curls falling down in her shoulder, but as the morning ran on she changed her mind. Nikki pinned all the hair up in a messy bun while I was styling the bride.

 

Next for me was bridesmaid Steph. She explained that she wanted a messy side updo with lots of texture.

 

Meanwhile, Nikki was busy styling Maid of honor Jessica. She wanted lots of pin curls and texture pinned all up and slightly off centered  to the left.

 

Nikki also styled for bridal party member Jayme who also wanted her hair all up. I love the way the curls are weaved and pinned together!

 

Bridesmaid Marni was also styled by Nikki. She wanted to wear her simply half-up while the rest was down in loose curls.

 

I got to be the one to style Flower Girl diva Brooke. She was well prepared with a photo and described to me that she wanted two braids and a side pony tail with lots of curls.

 

Finally I got to style the bride-to-be Kiki. Back during the trial run in June we practiced her hair pulled half-up with lots of curls falling down on her shoulders. So that’s what I recreated again for the wedding day. She wanted a lot of volume in the back with all of her hair pulled away from her face. Finishing her hair, I added a sparkling headband. For her makeup, she wanted a natural look with dark brown colors.

 

It was really fun to hang out with such a great group of friends. Most of these ladies traveled in from all over the country to be here for Kiki. I’m glad to have been a small part of this day as well. Thank you again for choosing me to be the stylist!
