    Ooooo! Will you do one for short hair too? My wedding has long ago come and gone (six years in June!) but I am always on the hunt for pretty looks for a few fancy parties I have to go to every year.

    Beautiful! I’m nervous about an updo as we’re having a beach wedding. But it would look beautiful! Hairspray is our friend I guess… :-)
