• {Real Wedding} Liz & Adam: A Nature-Inspired DIY Wedding

    I didn’t do a ‘first look’ but I like seeing them documented!

    The bride and groom did all of their own paper goods.  Love that owl!

    From the bride:

    Since both of us are graphic designers by trade or hobby, we created all of our seating cards, table cards and programs from scratch. We had a nature theme, so we used images of plants and animals to tie everything together. My stepmom and friends handmade all of our favors.

    Certain elements were special to us, like sneaking sunflowers into the boutonnieres since they’re Adam’s favorite. Our florist made them fit the color palette by plucking the petals. 

    We rented a photo booth because every year since we started dating, we take a set of photo booth pictures to commemorate it. (Going for set #6 in June!) 

    What made our wedding “ours” was simply getting our family involved. But to me, as the bride, my favorite (and scariest) moment was playing a violin duet with my brother for Adam and all of the guests. It may not have been album-worthy, but it’s now a wonderful memory.

    Congrats Liz and Adam!  It looks like you had a fun, personal, and lovely day.

    •  I am selling some of my favorite summer dresses (some have never been worn like this one!) over at @ohlovelydaysale around 7pm PST. All are are new or EUC, size small or medium, and are from anthro, j.crew, topshop, and a couple of indie shops. Head on over, check out the rules, shipping info, etc. First email address gets in, if they don't pay within 24 hours it goes to the backup. Also, anything listed there now is still available.  Yesterday I was super productive (you can see over on snapchat -> chandrafredrick) because I got a great night's sleep. Last night I wasn't so lucky. So let's just look at this photo of some of what I accomplished yesterday to distract from the fact that today I plan on being a slug
       In the last week we conquered a long walk in the stroller, a birthday party in the Ergo, moved you into your bassinet, and had an amazing night of sleep. You started reaching for things, and (based on a ridiculous number of blow outs) grew out of size 2 diapers. And you almost never stopped smiling. #14weeks #quincysweekbyweek #quincyrhys  Can we talk for a sec about how obsessed I am with this illuminating @zacposen gown that Claire Danes wore to the Met Gala? It's like Cinderella meets celestial. ✨ (I showed my husband and he said "and you met Zac Posen!" Thanks babe ) #metgala2016 #zacposen #clairedanes #bestdressed
