My Wedding Look

This morning, I rode my trusty bike to Cutler and Make Up Forever for my wedding hair and makeup trials. I was a little nervous, but I ended up having such a great time and was totally thrilled with how it turned out (especially the sweet little braid). Now I want to get married immediately.

  16. Joe – I wanted to pop in and say a quick hello. It was lovely chatting with you and Alex at the Sunday Supper but gee, I feel down right silly. I hadn’t realized you were engaged. Though it is probably for the best, I can talk weddings 366 days a year. I love ’em. I love talking about them. I go on and on about ’em. I never would have shut up.

    Well, congratulations to you two! You make a wonderful pair. I’m sure your day will be stunning and I wish you all the best. Your hair looks perfect, as does the make-up.
