• {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.

       Getting our morning exercise in at @lacma. Calvin loves to walk the lights. If you missed my post on the blog about it last week, Urban Light is a great place to take your little walkers -- it's clean and empty before #lacma opens. LACMA is probably my favorite spot in the city to take littles of all ages -- lots to do and very well maintained (which is important when you have a kid that likes to pick up and put everything in his mouth). Head to my blog and search LACMA to see more. #OLDsfaveplacesinLA // outfit note: both the romper (summer) and cardi (fall) are from @juneandjanuary and I just got my order from the fall line and everything is darling. I love the soft material, the heathered styles for fall/winter, and the side snap tees, hooded rompers, and October hats are  I just wish I would have ordered more of the pants for Calvin and baby 3. Staple pieces that can be layered and worn for a long time. #whatcalvinwears #juneandjanuary #freshlypicked #calvins2ndyear
       Since I couldn't attend #nybridalweek in person this season, I'll be sharing and regraming some of my favorite looks throughout the week. Love the style of this veil and big bouquet paired with a sweetheart neckline and a bare neck from the @annebargebride show.
