One of the last vendor decisions we made was to bring on Studio Bride, a Jacksonville-based beauty company, to do the hair and makeup for the mothers, me, and my two bridesmaids.
When you’re not able to do a wedding trial, and when you completely neglect to plan well in advance for a vendor, of course you’re going to worry that the result will be less than ideal. In fact, you should expect it! But the work that the women from Studio Bride did (Amber and Anne Marie) was impeccable. I honestly don’t know how I lucked out so well with these ladies. They managed to take the inspiration pictures I had emailed them a few weeks prior and then proceeded to completely blow them out of the water on the spot.
I woke up bright and early and proceeded to kick Mr. B-Cat out to join his groomsmen in their hotel room. We had an early start with hair and makeup, and they came in bright and early on the day of the wedding and quickly set up shop in our hotel room.
