Hair & Makeup for My Wedding

Jake and I had a non-traditional wedding in the fact that we two weddings! One local for those family members who couldn't make the trip and one in Mackinac Island, MI! I had the wonderful girl who has done my hair for 8 years do my hair for our ceremony in Zionsville! Teddi Bickers has been doing my hair since the first event I ever planned at the Mavris! She styled it that day and I fell in love with her work! In Mackinac the amazing Something Blue Stylists did my hair & makeup! I also had the most beautiful hair accessories from Hair Comes The Bride!  Stay tuned for more details & pictures from both days! Full vendor list at the bottom!!

Teddi is a great friend after 8 years of doing my hair! She did a fantastic job with basically no direction! So I NEVER wear my hair up, but my hair down just didn't make any sense with my dress. It was a big leap of faith for me to let someone put my hair up as it's so unfamiliar for me! Teddi did my hair in the coolest way but still made it polished and timeless! I felt gorgeous and I was so thankful for her creativity and help!

Hair & Makeup in Mackinac Island: courtesy of Something Blue Stylists!  I have been working with Andi at Something Blue Stylists since she moved back to Indiana a few years ago! She truly has a larger than life kind spirit and a true talent for hair & makeup as well as running one hell of a business! She has become a friend after sharing dozens of clients and doing styled shoots side by side! I was honored to be her coordinator for her wedding the week before Jake & my wedding! I was so glad I could have Brittney from her company do my hair and makeup in Mackinac! Brittney came up with her family and then took a ferry to the island to do my hair and makeup! She also did all the little girls in the wedding and my sister. She did a fantastic job on myself as well as the little girls! I see a lot of hair and makeup so I'm incredibly picky but Brittney worked with me to find the perfect style. Brittney also made sure my makeup was flawless! She expertly applied lashes (I wish I could wear them everyday) and made sure my makeup lasted by artfully applying it! I sweat, I was rained on, I was hugged and kissed and it lasted all the while! I continue to refer Something Blue Stylists to many of clients and they never disappoint them just like they didn't me :) So thankful Andi found her way back to Indiana from California!! See the gorgeous images below! 

I was so fortunate to get introduced to Gina with Hair Comes The Bride through Andi with Something Blue Stylists! Gina makes the most beautiful hair accessories for weddings! These pearls came on hair pins so we could add them to my hair however I decided on my wedding day. I hadn't made a final decision until very close to the wedding so I loved these because they offered me lots of flexibility to accentuate my hair however I chose to wear it! They were incredible quality and Gina was great to work with!
