I will come back to this weekend’s festivities, but first, here are some long overdue photos from our wedding day!
The ladies and I got ready at my place. After much agonizing, I finally decided to hire a makeup artist and hairstylist to help me get prettified. I seriously thought about saving the money and doing everything myself, butespecially with an 11:30 a.m. ceremony timeI did not want to have the stress of being totally responsible for my appearance that day. Call me shallow if you’d like…I can take it.
Fortunately, I was able to work with people I’ve known for years. I first met the fabulous makeup artist many years ago when I was still doing acting and modeling. She did my makeup on a few shoots so we got to chat it up and get to know each other. And I’ve been getting my hair cut by the same guy for nearly 10 years now. So I was thrilled that they both were willing and able to work their magic on me and my posse!
I grew my hair out for the wedding. You can really see how long it is in the next photo. It drove me crazy, so I cut it off soon afterwards.
I made my very first purchase from Etsy…a gorgeous silk flower from the Ã¼ber-talented Mikiye Creations.
And it was wonderful getting ready at my place, especially since we started at 6 a.m. (!!!). It was very relaxed and laidback, which was exactly what I wanted the morning to be like.
Many thanks to Stacey Bode Photography for the awesome photos.
