Rachel, from ZING, did my hair. She was great. My hair stayed put all day, and she was very calm and quiet while doing my hair. I don’t remember her once asking me to do anything other than look up/down/to the side. Plus, my head didn’t ache at the end of the day like it did after my trial!

There were a LOT of bobbie pins in my hair, but look at that shiny pile of curls!

At that point, I had to get up and stretch. I think this was also when Miri came in and dropped off her baby for me to snuggle.

And the crowning touch, my tiara!

Also, did you notice a difference in photo quality there? The first photo is with my old point-and-shoot and the later ones were with the new camera we received as a wedding present. Andrea used both to take some photos of me getting ready and of the bedekin/ketubah as well.

While Rachel was fussing with my hair, Amanda, from Kokoro Photography, took photos of many of my accessories and details. Her mom and partner, Debi, took lots of photos of Ben (I’ll post those tomorrow).

I know that my mom thinks that these photos of what I wore are excessive, but I appreciate them! I spend all that time and effort gathering them, it’s nice to have that documented. Plus, now you all can see them! Would anyone like to borrow the veil, tiara, shoes (size 6.5), or earrings? I suppose I could just pass on those accessories, and they can make their way through the world. Especially the veil, when can I ever wear that again?! I suppose it’ll just stick around as a future dress-up item if no one else wants it.

I’m sure I’ll find other reasons to wear the earrings and shoes again, the brooch is my great-great grandmother’s (or her sister’s) and is in my mother’s keeping, the pearl bracelet is from my grandma via my uncle Richard. Everything else is new.

Sunday morning….. After fielding the phone call about where to have the ceremony, it wasn’t too bad. Andrea and I got up, ate roomservice breakfast, picked things up from my parents’ hotel room, and started getting my hair done. It was amazing how everyone came together to help me prep for my big day. I hope Ben felt as much love and support as I did!

Mrs. Jones and WAJR came by to visit help by darning my sweater, Andrea and Becca were my personal helpers, and Miri let me snuggle her baby to keep us both calm while she went to set up the video camera.

Plus, all the people we hired were awesome too, when I was running behind no one made me stress over it, they just wanted me to know and then helped me get ready a bit faster. I never felt rushed, a bit behind, but not rushed. I suppose you could call me a zen bride, it’s not like anything could have happened without me!

Things that  helped me feel pretty all day (as opposed to people):
