Just a fun shot of my art supplies!
These are from the last wedding I did (another referral--yay!) back in April. The bride had very fine hair, and was worried that anything but a simple french twist might look bad. I assured her that I could do something that looked full and pretty. She came to her practice well prepared with lots of great photos of updo's she liked, and we came up with this style together. On the wedding day, I made sure I snapped some photos afterwards, since her photographer didn't shoot pics before the veil was on.


These are just photos I took (I will post the professional ones if I am able to get them), but this is better than nothing. Melanie was a referral from a former bride. (Thanks, Annie!) She flew in just in time for the wedding, so unfortunately, we didn't get to have a practice run. However, we were both pleased with how the style turned out. She had long, naturally curly hair, and wanted the curls swept back with a lock hanging down to frame her face. Her bridesmaid, who had short hair with layers, wanted an updo and told me to do whatever I thought would work best. I liked how it turned out--her highlights really showed off the style.
