October 26 • 2017

Make your bridal look extra special with a bridal sash or glittery accessory from SparkleSM Bridal. These pieces are expertly crafted from diamond pointed rhinestones, high quality glass crystals and importable double face satins to add an element of glamour to any bride’s ensemble. Whether you’re dreaming of a elegant sash or a fun, glitzy head piece, Sparkle SM Bridal has a little something for every Mrs.-to-be.

The designer was inspired by her own search for bridal accessories to begin her design studio. “I started SparkleSM to offer brides the opportunity to wear a beautiful accent piece without having to pay designer price,” she says. “I focus my current collection on the glamorous nature of weddings, the magic of the day and the sparkle that catches your guests eye. Perhaps set yourself apart from other brides with a design worn for your ceremony (a day look) and a bolder statement piece for your reception. Changes your whole look for a fraction of the price! I am always honored to be a part of your special day.

Renee and Bill tied the knot at the breathtaking Nonantum Resort in iconic Kennebunkport, ME.

Renee and Bill’s wedding day was a breezy late summer afternoon on the coast of Southern Maine. The happy couple exchanged vows on the property’s lawn before friends and family. After the ceremony, they explored the waterfront grounds with photographer, Eric McCallister, in tow to capture some jaw-dropping portraits. We love how they embraced the sophisticated character of their destination, using a soft palette of ivory, cream, and blush to accent the resort’s elegant vibe.

Today we’re revisiting our interview with Lena Hartford of Hair That Moves. Lena and her team provide top-notch beauty services for brides and their maids across New England. [Photos: Eric McCallister / Angela Greenlaw]

L&L: Tell us a little bit about you & your business.
Hair That Moves is New England’s premier bridal hair styling service that comes to you. No need to travel to the spa to receive professional hair care and styling services. Relax and enjoy in the convenience of your talented stylist coming to you. Perfect hair for your perfect wedding day.

 L&L: Describe the range of services you offer.
I offer everything from spa services, manicure and pedicures and blow outs for the bridal party before rehearsal, we sometimes even do a little grooming for men! The day of wedding I offer formal hair services and makeup services to meet your desired look.

L&L: What is one thing you would say makes your business unique in the industry?
I used to think that being an onsite wedding specialist was unique but it seems to be very popular now. I would say that my business is unique because I work very closely with planners, photographers and other vendors to make sure that the bride is done on time and that the schedule that I make to use as a time guideline for the day is reflective of that. Since I am the vendor that starts the day, if I run late, everyone runs late and I don’t want anyone to be put off by the bride being late because of me!

 L&L: How far in advance do couples usually book you for their wedding day?
Ideally brides book me 16-12 months in advance. It never fails that there are popular dates and I get asked for the same dates and I hate not being able to help them all. After the early brides book, the trend is 6-8 months in advance. I would love it if brides booked me as soon as they booked their photographer or venue first thing!

 L&L: How do most clients find you?
Most clients find me from word of mouth from brides or vendors, photographers blogs that they have credited me in or features in magazines or blogs. I do try my hardest to keep an online presence! I love the vendors I work with and we tend to recommend each other!

 L&L: How can couples get in touch with you?
The best way to reach me is by email at Lena@hairthatmoves.com or call me 603-682-4465
Follow me on Facebook, Instagram or Pinterest

We are head over heels for Megan & Sean’s intimate wedding in the heart of Cambridge, MA.

The couple got ready together in their Central Square apartment. Their neighborhood was the perfect backdrop for some pre-ceremony portraits, accompanied by their dog. Guests gathered the Watermark residence skydeck in Kendall Square for the ceremony. Megan and Sean exchanged vows beneath a crystal clear sky overlooking panoramic views of the Boston skyline. The party continued to the rustic Commonwealth restaurant where bistro lighting, polished wood, and warm brick textures created a cozy celebratory atmosphere. Thank you to Siri Jones Photography for sharing these lovely images with us!
