Fun and Romantic Styled Shoot at Mims House

I think we all can raise a hand with a big “yes please”, when it comes to the idea of spending an afternoon dancing around in a gorgeous wedding dress.  We were so exited to be part of Sean Szitas’ styled shoot with Tre Bella at Mims House.  A gorgeous lace gown, romantic floral’s and a beautiful old home come together to create gorgeous inspiration for your big day!

April and Costa – Duke Gardens Wedding

When you think of a beautiful garden wedding, so many gorgeous ideas come to mind!  In our world of beauty, there is always one thing that pops out in my mind for a garden wedding: BRAIDS!  I must say that I personally as a hairstylist am a huge fan of braids for any occasion, but April chose the absolute best mix with choosing to incorporate braids into her wedding hair as well as her wedding party, and getting married in Duke Gardens.  If you’ve never visited Duke Gardens, you must put it on your list!  This is a wedding venue that is not just solely a wedding venue.  (Perhaps I’m feeling extra mushy feelings for it since I am a Durham native myself and grew up visiting, but it’s so beautiful!)  As you walk through the gardens you’ll see a vast array of wonderful flowers, water fountains, statues, bridges and of course wild life.  We were so excited to get photos back of our bride April’s wedding, not only for how excited we were over the braids she had us do, but the gorgeous scenery she and Costa are submerged in for their wedding photos.  We can’t help but wonder how long it took them to choose which photos to hang on their wall!

Hurricanes and Weddings!

Hello sweet friends! It is hurricane season!  It’s also wedding season!  I am totally biased, but autumn is my very favorite season as well as time to get married.  But like I said, I’m so biased!  If you don’t know much about me, two years ago I got engaged in October and then last year I got married in October.  So October and autumn are my favorite time of year!

But with this time of year, comes hurricanes!  Watching the weather on the news the past few weeks, we have been getting a lot of those passing all around us.  My whole perspective changed about the idea of  rain on your wedding day when Matthew came through NC last year.  We had planned almost everything for outside, and then the morning of the wedding, good ‘ole Matthew started blowing through.  There was a sadness about me upon waking up, realizing that everything we had pictured was out the window.  But little did I realize how perfect this storm was going to change our day.

Rain can make for amazing photos, amazing video, and it heightens your senses of all that’s around you.  Rain cleanses and makes things grow.  It is not something to be upset over, it’s something to be thankful for.  When I look at the photos from our day, I remember all that rain.  But when it’s raining like it is now with the remnants of Irma passing through, it reminds me of our special day.  There is beauty in rain that you must step back and look at to realize.  So, today I wanted to share with you all, photos from our wedding when rain was there.  Matthew came through, but we still got married.  And at the end of the day, that’s what we wanted most. :]

This last one is one of my favorites, it’s so close up, but you can see how wet my husband’s jacket is.  At that point, the ends of my hair were drenched as well, but neither of us were paying attention to any of it.

One thing is for sure ladies, Airbrush makeup is hurricane proof! I was lucky enough to have both Jen’s of MYD do my hair and makeup and my hair was what needed the most work before the reception.

I’ll leave you with our video, I love the way our videographer incorporated the rain.  The poor guy was soaked after getting all that footage, but he made it so beautiful in the edits!  Have a lovely rainy day everyone!

The Wonderful World of Halo Couture!

Hello sweet friends!  A couple years ago I went to a hair show that introduced me to the amazing world of Halo Couture hair extensions!  These little beauties change everything about the world of clip in extensions and I quickly became obsessed with mine.  I always talked about wanting “mermaid” hair for my wedding, that long flowing hair that comes over the “girls”.  There’s just something about that length of hair that always made me feel so girly.  I was 3 weeks away from getting engaged when I went to this hair show and my hair was no where near mermaid length!  But miraculously I went home with one!

Here is my hair just regularly styled without my halo…

halfbackfrenchtwistAnd here is a style with my halo, not too long after this first photo!

The reason I love the halo is that its just one weft of hair that has so much hair on it!  It goes over your hair with a clear wire feature in which you pull your hair over and you are finished!  And so I leave you, with the beautiful mermaid hair I had for my wedding thanks to my halo.  And now that it has made an appearance on my big day, I’m even more attached!

Here’s a few lovely ladies who used a halo to get their dream hair.  They were so happy with the final result. Who doesn’t love nice dreamy, long hair?!

This bride wasn’t necessarily wanting extra length, but more fullness in her half up half down style.  Her halo worked in perfectly to add that volume!

Katy and Jereme – All Saints Chapel

Hi sweet friends!  Katy and Jereme chose the beautiful All Saints Chapel to hold their wedding.  Talk about a bride who was all smiles,  Katy was so much fun to work with!  I have to say, her high bun was so fitting.  It’s not everyday a bride asking for a high bun, but once I got to know her, the fun spirited, bubbly vibe of a high bun matched her happy personality.  We hope you enjoy these fun photos from their gorgeous wedding!

Soft and Romantic Wedding Hair and Makeup

Hello sweet friends!  Today I wanted to share with you our bridal party we got to work with this past weekend!  We got to see the inside of one of the beautiful houses in Pinehurst, as the family rented one to stay in, and boy were we wow’d!  Our bride, Stephanie,  stole the show though.  Her radiant beauty was on display as we went through the day.  She opted for a soft, natural makeup look and a sweet romantic, half up half down hairstyle with two beautiful hair pins that were her “borrowed” from her sister.  Her whole bridal party was beautiful in their upstyles and matching blue collared shirts.  We drove away in smiles from such a fun getting ready party for sweet Stephanie!
