Joy: Our Wedding – Getting Ready

After a busy morning of  hair appointments and picking up our bouquets, my maid of honor Kristen and I finally arrived at Augustana College to start getting ready! My bridesmaids met us in what we affectionately called our “Getting Ready Room,” which actually was the make-up room that the theatre cast uses before each show. Full of mirrors and lights, the room was perfect for a bunch of girls getting beautiful!

So, as Kristen wrote furiously, finishing her maid of honor speech…

My new sister-in-law Larissa was my make-up artist extraordinaire!

My hair needed a few more bobby pins…

And just like that, my make-up was done! Larissa used mostly Bare Minerals products, as well as some Loreal and Maybelline eyeshadow and mascara to finish off the look. Larissa and I had two make-up trials before the big day to get the look exactly right – I’ve never felt so beautiful!

My Mom arrived at Augustana with my gown, and it was almost time to get dressed!
