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! ❤ ❤

This passed weekend I got to meet and style hair for a lot of lovely ladies. One of them was bride-to-be Lauren and since the time we met for a trial run of her hair and makeup, I have been looking forward to her wedding day. She was such a calm and lovely bride. Plus, I can’t get over how amazing her hair piece was!

Her bridesmaids were also pretty awesome.

Thank you so much to Lauren for choosing me to be a small part of her big day. It was truly my pleasure to spend the day with such a fun group of ladies!

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!

Connie’s Big Day!

Earlier this month I got the wonderful pleasure of working with bride-to-be Connie. When we met for a trial run in May, we discussed putting her hair into a low set updo on the left side of her head.

On the day of the wedding, the style turned out lovely and she chose to accent it with a beautiful feathery fascinator.

I also go to spend time with some of Connie’s family. Here are some photos of the great styles I got to do for them.

It was truly an awesome day and I am lucky to have been a small part of it. The creativity that Connie brought to the details of her wedding day was inspiring. She even made these adorable buttons for me!

This weekend Nicole got married and I got to spend the day with the lovely bride and many of her friends as they got ready to walk down the aisle.

Nicole and I met a few weeks ago for a trial run. She shared with me some inspiration photos. Her ideal style was an updo set low and off to the right side. On the morning of the big day, we did just that and accented the style with two delicate lace clips. DSC03132

Here are some of the photos of her bridesmaids.

Overall, it was a really fun day. I was happy to be a part of her day and I loved the way everyone’s hair turned out.  All the best wishes to the newlyweds as they begin their married life together! Thanks for Nicole for choosing me to be her hair stylist!

Makeup for Nicole’s day was applied by the lovely Joy Lager of Beauty By Joy!

Late in September I got to spend the day with a fantastic bride and her bridal party as they got ready for her walk down the aisle. When Autumn and I met for her trial run, we tried a very textured, side updo. to be accented with large white flower. On the wedding day, she decided to stick with this same look and I love the way it turned out.

Autumn: Trial

This past weekend, I got to spend time with bride-to-be Autumn. On Sunday, we did a trial run of her hairstyle.

She showed me several photos of updos. She knew that she wanted to wear her hair in a side updo with tons of texture throughout the entire look. Here are a few snap shots!
