Classic, Sweet Sophistication with all the Girly Touches at the Renaissance Columbus

Hello Gorgeous!  I am loving these photos!

Amanda Pudlicki brought a sweet sophistication to her wedding day that was unrivaled.  The day began at the Renaissance Hotel, downtown Columbus (3rd St and Gay St).  Amanda's wedding party of five was intimate and personal. GoodeHair's Shannon Goode arrived at 11a with a finish time of 2p.  Starting a little later in the morning allowed for everyone to get a good night's rest and wake up refreshed and ready to go.

I'm sure Amanda wouldn't mind if I told her story about the arrival at the Renaissance.  Amanda checked in at the front desk and they welcomed her, gave her the run down and handed over her room card.  There was some sort of mix up with the room and she ended up back at the front desk to resolve the issue.  They in turn upgraded her to the executive suite.  The executive suite has quite a spread and is a beautiful and spacious area to prepare for a wedding day.  

I arrived at 11a and found a perfect place next to the wall of windows at the desk.  This allowed for the perfect amount of lighting and space to arrange my things perfectly for the styling tools and products that would be used.  

Hairstyling would soon begin for the beautiful bride, her two bridesmaids, flower girl and mother.  I began styling hair for the bride, as she wanted to be first.  She would wear her medium length hair in a fashion-forward,  classic with a twist and a touch of sweet sophistication bun.  The bun would reside on top of her head and was full but not overwhelming.  It was gorgeous.  Amanda looked absolutely stunning with her hair pulled up in this amazing updo. 

Soon after her hair was finished, Angela Culver of ARC Artistry arrived and was ready to artfully enhance the beautiful faces.  Angela is a fresh breath of air.  She is a makeup artist in Columbus, Ohio and likes doing weddings.  Angela would begin on Amanda as I would continue styling hair for the bridesmaids.

This early September wedding was stunning and every bit as awesome as planned.  From the metallic dresses and accessories to the pastel flowers.  

Amanda's hair trial was late March and she knew exactly what she wanted.  She had a vision and we were ready to make that happen for her.  

Amanda surprised me a few weeks after her wedding with a most precious thank you card.  Thank you, Amanda for letting me be part of your wedding day.  You were a stunning bride.  I was honored to be able to do my part in creating a dreamy wedding day look for you!

Happily ever after indeed.  Congratulations Amanda (Puklicki) McDonald!  A stunning bride and a perfectly amazing wedding day will forever be among our favorite!
