Even though my wedding was the most amazing day, I haven’t posted too much about it. Reason being is that I am in complete denial that it is over! People always say your wedding day will come and go faster than you could imagine, but clearly I didn’t listen.
Our big day would not have been possible without the love and support from our family and friends. There are no words I can say that will express how truly grateful we are. As I slowly come to terms of the wedding being over, I wanted to share more about the amazing people who helped make this day perfect!
Finding a stylist for your special day can be extremely difficult but luckily for me, it was a no-brainer. Before meeting Kirby, I was extremely picky about haircuts and would even avoid scheduling appointments because I disliked haircuts so much. So going from no haircuts to letting Kirby style it however he wants to, is a dramatic change! I don’t even need to tell him what I want done, I just go in, sit down, and let him work his magic.
I met Kirby Keomysay through my sister about six years ago when I first moved to Omaha. I let him style my hair once and knew in an instant he would be my stylist on the day of my wedding. Throughout the years, he has styled, cut, and colored my hair more times than I can count and in 2012 he opened his own studio, Kontempo.
Fast forward a few more years and there I was at Kontempo having my hair trial with Kirby. I showed him a few formal up-do’s but (in ordinary fashion) told him to just do what he knows will look best. I am always fascinated that with little to no directions, Kirby knows the exact look I want.
Working with Kirby and his team throughout the wedding process was a breeze and gave me total peace of mind. We arrived at Kontempo bright and early on August 5th and his team jumped right in. I love watching Kirby style my hair. It’s like watching an artist put together a puzzle as he turns it into a masterpiece. I didn’t think it was possible to love it more than I did the day of the trail, but of course Kirby takes it to another level. Beyond perfection!
I was also fortunate enough to have Kristen, from Kontempo, be the makeup artist. Not only did she apply my makeup perfectly, she was able to do iit while the videographers and photographers captured their shots. She had my chair turned away from the mirror while she worked so I was very excited to see how it looked.
Once Kristen turned the chair to show me my final look, I got very emotional as I saw my final makeup and hair look. Everything was absolutely perfect and I couldn’t have been more excited. Every girl dreams of their big day and I was so lucky to have Kirby and his team make it possible.
Looking back at these photos brings back so many emotions. I am so incredibly grateful for Kirby and his team at Kontempo for helping make this day perfect. For those of you living in the Omaha area and looking for the most talented and hard-working team, you will find them at Kontempo.
Like I said, I am still in denial our wedding is over so slowely but surely, I will share more details about our day. If there are certain details or topics you would like me to cover, please let me know! Thank you all so much!
