Hi everyone! Happy Monday! I’m looking forward to this week because we are heading up to DC Friday to visit friends.

I’ve been meaning to get this post up for a while now… I can’t believe it’s been 6 months since the wedding! I’m finally getting around to sharing all of the details on my hair & makeup. I decided to do my own makeup after searching for TN makeup artists & not coming up with any that were available or affordable. I was nervous to have someone else do my makeup anyways. I wanted a simple, subtle, yet elegant & romantic look. My bridesmaid Cara did my eye makeup (not my strong suit) & it turned out perfect!

My hairdresser from Charlotte traveled to Pigeon Forge to do my hair & all of the bridesmaids. I had a hard time finding anyone local & lucky for me, she was willing to travel! I wanted all of the girls’ dos to be different but incorporate a messy braid, bun, or pony. Each one turned out beautiful. For my hair, I knew I wanted most of it down & curly, but also wanted some pulled back off of my face. After about 10 different tries, I fell in love with the twists & fishtail braid. She twisted a piece from each side a few times & then back into the fishtail braid. She left a couple of pieces curled in the front & curled the rest. To add a little sparkle, she placed 3 pearl & rhinestone pins into the fishtail. Similar styles can be found HERE & HERE.

Comment if you have any questions about products or anything wedding-related!! I have so many wedding photos I still want to share so stay tuned for more soon!
