Elsie’s Wedding Day: Getting Ready


Hello There! I’m so excited to share a few photos from the morning of my wedding day. The mood in the room was incredibly relaxed. We were all giggling and helping each with eye liner and faux lashes. We played the playlists from the wedding (would you like to hear them?) and smiled a lot….






I call it my “married finger”… glitter nail polish only on the ring ringer.




Holly giving Katie an epic beehive. There was a LOT of hair teasing going on…








I painted Hope’s nails with glitter, per her request. She made her own headband in these photos (she’s the coolest, EVER!)


Sarah did the other half of the bridesmaid’s beehives. She did a beautiful job.


happy thoughts…. be back soon with more! elsie

  • I love this. So much. This low-key hang out and laugh together vibe is my favorite part of wedding mornings. The two weddings I’ve been in so far have been super laid back and full of friendship and fun times. I love that you painted your own nails and helped out with Hope’s too. I like brides that can be relaxed enough to help and do some things themselves. 🙂

    And yes, the wedding playlist would be great.

  • I love your blog and congratulations on your wedding! I love all the decor and personal touches!

  • I think it’s so sweet you guys did each other’s hair instead of having a professional do it. When my close friend got married last year, the maid of honor did her hair and it was really nice for us bridesmaids to hang out just us (along with the photographer, who was also a friend). 🙂

  • Love the glittery nail on your ring finger. Cute detail. You have to make sure he puts the ring on the right finger.
