A Shear Genius Wedding!
Finalist Janine Jarman gets married – with fellow finalist Matthew Morris creating her Priscilla Presley-inspired wedding hair
Bravo’s Shear Genius finalists Janine Jarman and Matthew Morris teamed up again on Saturday, as Jarman married sales executive Matthew Wolcott at the Houdini Mansion in Hollywood.
For the occasion, Morris created two looks for Jarman, who owns Hairroin Salon in Hollywood: A Priscilla Presley-inspired updo for the ceremony and a June Carter-inspired pony tail for the reception.
Jarman, in a custom gown by Jared Gold, walked down the aisle to a choir singing Madonna’s “Like A Prayer.” The groom wore a tuxedo jacket by Prada and cowboy boots with spurs. The couple exchanged non-denominational vows under an altar adorned with paper flowers made out of dress patterns in honor of Jarman’s deceased grandmother.
After the 30-minute ceremony, the 250 guests – including JC Chasez, Ron Fair, and Kevin Martin of Candlebox – enjoyed a romantic outdoor cocktail reception with appetizers such as pigs in a blanket and fried chicken. Event producer Nilo G. with Kapture Events created a “vintage western meets elegant couture” celebration in dusty pastel colors.
Festive elements included a taco stand, a Coolhaus ice cream truck and live performances by bands The Riff Raff, Miss Derringer and Scarling. In lieu of a wedding cake, guests were asked to bring a baked dessert for the dessert bar in honor of the bride’s deceased grandmother.
“He’s perfect for me because he’s my biggest cheerleader,” says Jarman of her new husband, whom she met for the first time when she was 12 and reconnected with at the beginning of 2008.
“He cheers me on and he calms me down. We have a great future ahead of us.”
Adds Morris: “She’s the artistic type who has her iron in a bunch of fires and he’s the person who helps her sort things out and grounds her. They complete each other.”
Jarman – who was voted the season three fan favorite – and Morris came in second and third respectively on the Bravo show, a hair-styling competition series hosted by model Camila Alves and judged by hair stylists Jonathan Antin, Kim Vo and Orlando Pita.
