Wedding Day Hairstyles

30 Nov

How will you wear your hair on your wedding day?  Pinterest is a great source to search for inspiration for an updo, half up half down or completely down bridal hairstyle.  Most wedding checklists recommend scheduling a trial with a hair stylist for about one to three months before your wedding.  Remember to bring inspiration photos along to share your vision and try out your hair accessories.

If you don’t already have a regular salon and stylist, a few Rochester area salons I recommend looking into are R!ah Hair Studio, Ooh La La Salon and Spa and City Looks Salon and Spa.

Rustic Elegance Winter Wedding Inspiration Board

29 Nov winter wedding mountains

As the weather turns cold, most couples don’t think of planning a wedding during the winter.  However, a wedding in the cooler months can be more budget-friendly since vendors often offer lower prices during this less busy time of the year.  Why not celebrate with a rustic yet elegant winter wonderland wedding?  Serve your guests warm cups of hot chocolate, accessorize with a chic fur wrap and let the rustic outdoors inspire the elements of your wedding.

Real Wedding Wednesday: Art Center Wedding

28 Nov

Love this playful, fun modern art center wedding!  Before the ceremony, the wedding party stopped at The Loop Bar + Restaurant and downtown Rochester for a photo shoot.  Jayne and Todd’s lighthearted summer wedding was captured by Scott Bacon Photo and took place at the Rochester Art Center.  The creativity and artful eye of the local photographer bride is evident in the delightful details.  The circle motif and burlap elements along with the range of blues with bright warm accents repeated throughout the details and decor tie everything together beautifully.
