A wise lesson that we can learn from today’s bride, Karen, is that staying true to yourself will make your wedding extra memorable. You can break a few traditions, wear a ball gown to an “intimate wedding,” and so much more. For Karen, a must was cutting her hair in a short bob on the day of her wedding! She wanted to have her long hair down just for the ceremony, so she opted to grow it out, and then chop it off right before their family luncheon. Her hairstylist was hesitant at first, but then quickly agreed because a shorter haircut is what makes this bride feel at her most beautiful!
Apart from getting a new haircut, Karen also designed all her bridal looks and even her entourage dresses. She even co-styled her groom’s attire. Although she didn’t actually have a “dream dress” planned out in her mind, she always had this vision of marrying a man in a white suit. Jeremy was happy to oblige! Karen, herself, will tell you about all the rest of the details. So, go on and enjoy scrolling through these photos from Mayad.
