A Best Friend's Wedding...

 I love being a part of wedding days even when I just meet the couple a few months before the wedding.  It is such a special day and being there to witness all the excitement is such a blessing.  This couple however, I have been a part of since the minute they met.  My first "set up" was a true success when these two said I DO on August 8, 2014. My great friends Haley and Alex had their gorgeous wedding at Belle Mer in Newport, Rhode Island.    I have been cutting, coloring and styling Haley's hair for the last 10 years, so doing her wedding look was something we have talked about for years, no pressure!  Haley loves an undone/textured big hair look, but also loves to rock a top knot bun.  So we morphed the two together to give her this perfect textured bun for her big day.

 I can only take credit for a few of these bridesmaid looks!  Haley was kind enough to not make me get everyone ready on top of being a bridesmaid myself :)

It's been too long!

Sorry Brides, it has been a busy year.  Not only did the launch of The Tonight Show happen this Feburary (where I work Mon-Fri) but I also am pregnant with my first child, and had a long year of beautiful brides, both clients and friends!  I plan to update my site and blog before going on Maternity leave from November-January.  For any winter brides, feel free to still reach out, I have some wonderful assistants taking over during my time off!

Trial runs.

I love sharing my trial photos because so often the bride and I play with so many different styles, but you can only choose one!  Here is a collection of some of my favorite trial looks from this year. 

Excuse the images if they are a little blurry (IPHONE), and just click on the photo to get to the next.

Texture and Braids

I had so much fun with this group of bridesmaids.  They all wanted their hair off their necks since it was a hot summer day, but they wanted to keep their looks casual and fun.  Braids and twists are such a great trend going on right now, especially for the bridal party.  Sometimes I steer brides away from these trendy looks just to keep your bridal look more classic.  But there are definitely brides out there that can pull these looks off!

Beautiful Capitale Winter Wedding

I met this beauty only a couple weeks before her wedding and was so happy I was able to be there for her beautiful winter wedding.  She has a beautiful head of hair and wanted to show it off.  We did a couple different looks just to keep the hair off her face and to showcase all of her gorgeous waves.  For more photos check out Monika Broz's blog here

Polar Vortex Wedding!

I'm sure when my Australian bride Claire reached out to me about her January elopement she didn't plan on it being 6 degrees outside.  She was a real trooper and still got married outside in Central Park outfitted in her white Canada Goose Coat!  After a very cold ceremony they worked their way through Grand Central and the New York Public Library.  I just love these photos taken by L&L Style Photography.  Makeup by Jennifer Wobito.

Beautiful Christian Oth wedding featured on Style Me Pretty

Christian Oth is one of New York's most sought out wedding photographers and this beautiful New York City wedding featured on Style Me Pretty shows why.  This bride wanted to have a relaxed sexy vibe with her long hair.  We went with a simple half up/half down style for the ceremony and then pulled it all down with tons of volume for the party.
