We found Abby’s great make-up Artist, Lynne Avallone, through Abby’s cousin Kristine. Kristine is a fabulous hair-stylist. She and Lynne frequently work together at weddings in the Boston area. I think Abby was most worried about her hair. She — kind of knew what she wanted — but couldn’t totally express it. She didn’t need to worry. Kristine read her like a book and Abby loved it! Kristine and Lynne made us all feel beautiful!

Abby's wedding Boston Lynne Avalone Vanderbilt

Abby’s bridal party included her sisters, Tait’s sisters, her best friend from home, and many of her friends from Vanderbilt. As we waited in the church library before the ceremony, they all broke into a lively rendition of “Going to the chapel … !” Apparently it’s a Vanderbilt-friend’s rite of passage to sing this right before the walk down the aisle.
