Woodland Wedding

Yesterday I had the awesome privilege of being hired as the stylist for a wedding party. Katie D. is an old friend of my sister's and I did her hair for their 8th grade graduation (and somehow that left enough of an impression to hire me again 10 years later?! Hey, I'll take it.) It was the cutest and most creative wedding I've ever been to. I really wish I'd been able to get more pics of the wedding party but I at least got some of the bride. We were going for a very ethereal look but she still wanted "big hair". (I also somehow managed to delete additional photos I had off of my camera before I double checked that I copied them to my computer correctly. Oh well. You live, you learn.

The bride:
I went to the bride's house to do everyone's hair (6 girls total). It was just cool to be such an integral part of someone's wedding and then to get to go to the wedding and see the finished product. I loved it and would love to do this a lot more. Any ideas on how to get my name out there, all you entrepreneurs?? Bethany and I went to the wedding together and I decided that's the way to do it. I mean really, how many husbands enjoy going to weddings unless they're really close friends or family (and even then...probably not so much)? Bethany and I loved gushing over all the details together and eating all the amazing food. Check her blog  for the post on the wedding. She photographed all the details. Here's a sneak peak:


  1. That's so funny! My friend (who is a stylist) and I were just talking about this tonight. She did a wedding party today with one other stylist and they made a killing for doing like 8 people's hair and make-up ($25 for make-up and $65 for hair plus tips!). I couldn't believe that she charges that much, but I guess people are willing to pay it. I told her that she could make that be her full-time job and just advertise at bridal fairs or do something in conjunction with wedding photographers. So there...a couple ideas for you :) You did a awesome job!

    P.S. We had an awesome time today :) Thanks!!

  2. Hey I know Katie D!! Her hair looks amazing! My mom said she saw you guys. She said everything was beautiful. Thanks for the pics!
