One Man, One Wife, One Love Through Life: Getting Gussied Up

Unfortunately, given our schedule, Cari started everyone else’s hair and make up about an hour and a half before our photographers arrived, so I apologize in advance for the surplus of photos of me.

When it was my turn in the hot seat, I was amazed at the amount of brushes laid out before me.


Meanwhile, MOH Sassy was a rock star juggling phones and giving directions, as well as checking up on the guys to make sure they were on schedule.


Details were captured like our rings, my grandmother’s pearls, my perfume—which I wish I could wear more than on just special occasions, and my shoes that took forever to find.




Cari teased and curled, and curled some more.



While I waited and waited, trying not to let my nerves show.




After a final shot of hairspray, it was time for the veil.



After lashes and lips, I was well on my way to becoming a bride.

    This may sound odd, but I LOVE your lipcolor! I’ve been looking for one just like it. Would you mind sharing the brand and color? I’m hoping it’s not some perfect personalized blend your makeup artist created!

    @jyssandgrant: Do you wear heels often? I ditched them right before our grand entrance and first dance and gave my feet a bit of a break during dinner. I’ve worn them for several hours since then and haven’t had a problem, but I think that’s due to breaking them in.

    @Mrs. Castle: Thanks! If money were no object I’d pay her everyday to style my hair.

    @MrsJJC: Unfortunately yes! :( the color is called ‘Scandalous’ and it’s a part of her makeup line (but it’s not on her website) she also mixed in a little nude pink to take it down a notch at my trial, and I think the day of she added in something else to make it more intense.

    @Mrs.macarons: I don’t wear them much at all. I still have a year to my wedding, I was thinking I would get them now didnr break them in good before the wedding.
