Since I knew the side bun hairstyle I wore for Meghann’s wedding was not only flattering but also lasted all day, I asked them to replicate a similar style. The result included a fun braid which helped it stay up longer and add a unique edge to the style. Both Gena and I sported it until the early morning hours with no issues.Melissa was the scene stealer all day long. She was radiant from morning until night, smiling with excitement to finally marry Frank and looking absolutely stunning in her lace gown. Pin It After hair and makeup our the bridal party headed to three different locations for the first look followed by pictures. We rode a carousel and posed among the vibrant fall foliage while capturing two hours worth of photos. It was colder than any of us expected so the swig of whiskey the groomsmen offered me on the trolley was more than welcome. We made our way to the church just in time for a quick bathroom stop before lining up for the procession. Everything went off perfectly and an hour later we toasted the happy couple on the trolley before heading to the reception site.
For the makeup, I requested a natural glow with a accentuated eyes to ensure that my makeup matched the black tie wedding. When paired with my silk duponi black bridesmaid dress and the beautiful bouquet the look came together just as I hoped!Pin It
Pin It Before the guests enjoyed the reception they were escorted to a cocktail hour including delicious heavy appetizers and a Mexican taqueria bar including guacamole, quesadillas and margaritas! Pin It After cocktail hour we moved into the reception hall for a sit down dinner, toasts, and four hours of dancing! The salad and the harvest stuffed portobello mushroom was restaurant quality while the gelato bar was such a fun treat including a gentleman who took orders and served the gelato to each guest behind an actual gelato case! Pin It But the main event was definitely the dancing! The dance floor was packed for three straight hours. More than 100 guests spent hours dancing to the music list Melissa and Frank put together for the DJ. We were all thankful for the large dance floor which allowed for true dancing versus akward movement in tight quarters. Pin It Pin It Thank you for an amazing evening Frank & Melissa! Bo and I wish we had a fun party like this every weekend!
