Back from the honeymoon with a new look!

Hello Hive!!!! I feel like I've been away forever but it hasn't even been a month yet since our wedding! It has been such a whirlwind going from our wedding in California back New York for a quick breather then onto our European honeymoon for two weeks. We had a blast but I'm happy to be back!

I have so much to tell about the weeks before the wedding, the honeymoon, the aftermath so far, not to mention recaps once we get our professional pictures! I'll start but telling you about a drastic change I decided to make just days after our wedding. Like many Bees before me I opted for a post wedding/pre-honeymoon haircut. I made up my mind long ago that I wanted short hair for our honeymoon. I referred to it as my "European bob." I was pretty tired of dealing with my long wedding hair and I knew it would end up in a pony tail the whole honeymoon if I didn't cut it all off.

Personal photos ahead! Here's how long it was the day of our rehearsal

And here it is after getting it cut two days after our wedding! 
 I wasn't wearing any makeup so I felt the sunglasses needed to stay on...

Here's a shot from our honeymoon!

I love it. I like my long hair too but I needed a change. It was a great cut for traveling. My hair dried so fast! And it took two seconds to style it with my travel sized hair straightener. Needless to say I'm very happy with my decision to cut my hair. :)

What about you? Will you/did you opt for the post wedding chop?

We did it!!!!

Just checking in to say the Castles are marrriiieeed! It was an amazing gorgeous day! My worries about possible rain were all for naught, the sky was clear and sunny. I was surprisingly calm the whole day leading up to the ceremony, earlier in the week was a different story... But the day of was absolutely thrilling.

We leave for our Italy/Paris honeymoon on Thursday and will be gone for two weeks! I didn't want to leave you all hanging! So here are some sneak peaks from the day!
