A Blonde Wedding: {Salon Pics!}


Hey girls, hey! Today is Thursday, can y’all believe it?! This week FLEW by for me, probably because it was our first week back in the “real world” after our honeymoon and the wedding craziness. I’m really relieved to be back into the swing of things.

So today I’m posting the pics from my bridesmaids and I getting our hair done at the salon on the day of the wedding! These were actually some of my favorite candid girl pics from that morning. We all had a blast just goofing off and getting ‘beautified’. Plus, it was a great way to relax and breathe a sigh of relief before the ceremony and reception craziness that night.

Check out that subtle poof...What? Thought I wouldn't rock a poof on my wedding day?! : )



When I first planned my wedding day “look”, I wanted to wear my hair half up/half down. But unfortunately, the humidity that day was no match for my hair and I ultimately went with the style I chose for my bridal pics! I ended up LOVING it and was so glad I did the updo. It stayed put all night and looked great even the next morning, ha!

I wanted something romantic and undone that looked unintentional and understated. I really think Jennifer, my amazing stylist, was able to capture it with the side swept “knot” that she created.

Undone curls? Check!!

A bride's gotta have her Sonic Vanilla Diet Coke...duh!

My hair guru, Jennifer Smith and me...posing with her finished product!
Voila!

Stephanie, Stephen's youngest sis and one of my bridesmaids, getting poofed for the first time!

Y'all may remember the post I did awhile back about me and my bestie, Sarah. We've known each other since we were born and I couldn't think of anyone more perfect for the Matron of Honor position : ) She is gorgeous inside and out and such a generous and dependable friend. Here's some proof that we've literally grown up together, ha! :

Me and Sarah in our shorter, less stylish days ; )

My cousin and bridesmaid Melissa (above)...isn't she just beautiful?! Mel actually stayed the night with me and my mom at my apartment the night before the wedding. We've always had a super special bond because we are only a couple of months apart in age. We stayed up until the wee hours of the morning talking about life and boys and babies. LOVE that girl!


Stephen's oldest sister, Sarah is hanging out above : ) She (and Kelly of course) were the two catalysts for us meeting each other! She is nearly 9 months pregnant and STILL managed to make it to the wedding and salon and reception that day...wowzers!! Since we weren't sure if she would have baby Reed before or after the wedding, we featured her as an honorary bridesmaid instead! She will forever be such a special person to me and I consider her one of my best friends now : )
 

Remember Miss Dee!? She's been on ye olden blog before when we did the High Heel Mafia posts. Of course she was also a bridesmaid...like, duh! Couldn't not have my Dee there on the day of the wedding! She's blonde and awesome and lots of fun!

Group shot!
 
Silly girls : )
All of that awesome hair led to a pretty awesome day! I loved my final hair look and couldn't have asked for a more suiting style for my personality.

Stay tuned tomorrow for....more wedding pics! Surprise! Betcha didn't see that coming, haha! Sorry y'all, I know you're probably sick of these, but I know I'll want these posts to look back on one day : )

Be blessed, lovelies-

  13. I told someone that I felt that I was along for the ride when it came to your wedding and that on your wedding weekend, I actually thought of you and hoped you had a wonderful day.

  26. I'm a new follower and am loving your wedding posts :) Having been married over 6 years myself, it's fun to relive my own memories in my mind as I see your pictures and read your cute captions!

    I just want to say that your hair and make up were GORGEOUS for your wedding. Such a great look! Did you do your own make up or have it done? Either way I think you need to share some make up secrets for getting such a dramatic eye look :)

    Congratulations on your marriage and keep sharing those photos and memories!
