Where do I begin?
Marie, or should I say my mother :), is the perfect combination of skill, passion, and vision. She nails it every time. She has designed for me since I was a young girl, whether it was school concerts, Halloween and Musical c...
ostumes, photoshoots, special events, and even my World fitness modeling competitions the past 3 years. I trust her above anyone to create something spectacular and of pristine quality. It was only natural that for my wedding day, I had complete trust in her to create something out of this world and unique to me.
Aside from my white wedding dress, everything about my wedding experience was non-traditional.
A little about the “wedding:” We had 13 guests - just parents, siblings, and grandma. We surprised our families with every detail of our intimate wedding weekend in Southern California. From the Airbnb we stayed at in Hollywood Hills, to our wedding destination on a 87’ luxury yacht in Newport Beach. Even in the limo rides to our location, our guests had no idea where we were going! :)
But more about the designs: I told Marie I didn’t want a veil. And of course, she had a better idea! “What if we created the illusion of a veil but it wasn’t a veil sitting on your head? Let’s attach it to the dress! Let’s saturate the hair with gorgeous pins”, and because my dress was so simple, she designed elegant arm jewelry to accent the simplicity of my gown. It added so much beauty to my unique, non traditional wedding look.
But amongst all the excitement, adventure and surprise, there was one constant. My mother making sure that her daughter (and last one to be married) had the most beautiful designs and accessories, made by her own two hands, on her special weekend.
With me living in California and Headpiece.com located in New Jersey, Marie and I worked on designs, fittings, and details through FaceTime meetings. The process felt seamless and stress-free. Marie is an amazing communicator and wants to make sure your masterpiece is everything that you want.
From her creativity of design, the materials used (including hand-painted Italian lace and fresh water pearl to name a few!), the time invested, the vision illustrated, and the love dedicated… I feel not only like the luckiest bride in the world, but also the luckiest daughter, too. I never fail to let my mother know how grateful I am for her and all she pours in to whom and what she loves.
For 23+ years I’ve witnessed her make her dream of Headpiece.com a reality, become a successful entrepreneur, use her own two hands to create beautiful accessories for women around the world, and help thousands of brides feel elegant and timeless on their big day.
If you ever have the opportunity to wear or own something made by Marie Hunt, consider yourself one lucky woman ♥️ there is no one else like her.
Ps. I learned a big lesson in my wedding experience that I’d love to share to future brides. Do what makes you happy. A wedding is meant to celebrate the love of you and yours and the new chapter you are about to embark on together. The process of planning your amazing wedding does not have to be stressful and chaotic. Take it one step at a time, ask for help, dream with your partner, and have fun with it. Make it what you want, regardless of what others expect of you. It’s your special day. Remember that.
Doing our wedding “our way” was the best way to do it! 10/10 recommend following your heart and 11/10 recommend going to Headpiece.com.
