Our Nebraska Wedding: The Day Begins

I tend not to sleep well when I am reallly excited about something the next day.  Somehow though…I slept amazingly well the night before our wedding!  Waking up bright and early, refreshed and beyond excited to get the day rolling!

After a quick breakfast and shower it was off to the salon with my bridesmaids to get our hair done!

I remember feeling really relaxed…maybe it was the mimosas :)  I .wasn’t worried one bit about my hair…I knew it would turn out great!  Tona my hair girl used to do my hair when I lived in Lincoln during college…so I knew she would do a wonderful job.  I think knowing your hair person makes the whole experience that much more relaxed and enjoyable.

We had the entire salon all to ourselves which was great.  We were able to just laugh and chat without worrying about bothering any other patrons.  We munched on bagels and fruit…and sipped on mimosas.  My older sister got done first and went to work making a fun picture on this giant chalkboard they had in the salon.

Lovebirds!  Before I knew it Tona was putting the finishing touches on my hair and putting on my headband.  Coincidentally…it began to sprinkle outside…but I wasn’t worried!  I knew (I am a meteorologist after all!) it would clear up soon and the sun would shine for the rest of the day!

After the rest of the girls finished up their hair we snapped a quick pic in front of the chalkboard.

We were all set to go!  So with that we were headed back to the hotel…ahead of schedule!

Up next…time to get pretty and put on my beautiful lace dress!
