So today really is the “Big” day – Tamra and Eddie are getting married - and in true Julius fashion I’m going to finish part two of my behind-the-scenes experience of being part of “Tamra’s OC Wedding” just in time!
Picture the scene: with only seconds to go before Tamra walks down the aisle, I’m pinning up her hair on one side, clipping in hair jewelry, spraying beach wave spray and creating a soft sexy bombshell beach look for her… and then she is walking down the grand staircase and Eddie gets his first look at his bride.
I had the privilege to experience this from above and catch it on my phone which I will post after tonight’s episode on my personal Instagram, JuliusMichael1, and our salon Instagram, JuliusMichaelSalon.
It was pure magic and totally surreal!
We made it through the ceremony and next up is her second look. So we race up to the bridal suite with cameras keeping up and I start removing the clip-ins I had put in… adding longer hair… curling and clipping… while Tamra is changing into her second dress with a more Gatsby look to it. I take down the curls and brush out her hair and we race back down to the wedding.
The next two hours were all about eating, drinking, and dancing.
The table settings had the most incredible centerpieces I have ever seen.
The cake was gorgeousness suspended from the ceiling with big diamonds and pearls – it looked like art that you just want to stare at and not eat.
The guests were all having a blast because most of us knew each other. Tamra and Eddie kept the wedding small and intimate so there weren’t a lot of unknown people.
Her fellow and former castmates from RHOC all had a great time and I hope you’ll see Jim Bellino take the stage and show all of us his funny musical side. (Fingers crossed they keep it in!)
Next up is the big dance that Eddie wanted Tamra to learn and with that dance came her last look of the night.
We race up to the bridal suite again and Tamra changes into her mini dress to dance the cha cha. Instead of removing the clip-in extensions I had used for the longer look, I added shorter clip-ins that I had curled earlier. But at this point there was no room so I had to piggyback the clip-ins onto the ones I already had on Tamra’s head.
I pinned up the center of her hair and made the sides and back full and sexy for her Big Dance with her Husband.
Tamra rocked this look and worked that dance floor – for having two left feet and never dancing salsa or cha cha she was awesome!
This look, the full sexy hair, center pulled back ,sides big and full, was my favorite look of the night – fun, simple and clean. A party look, a beach look, a shopping look, a look you can use for anything – even your wedding!
What a night! Here’s a toast to a happy future for Tamra and Eddie – so glad to have been a part of their special time!
Happily Ever After…….The End.
