• {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.

Not wanting to be outdone by your big bro. Cause look who's pulling himself up, so he can keep up  #quincysmilestones #calvinandquincy #lawdhelpme #charlieandcalsroomredo
       This week was a rough one. I feel like I say that every week but this one really was. Today alone had me at my breaking point. All three of my kids seemed hell bent on driving me crazy. Quincy literally wouldn't let me put him down or leave the room without a major scream-cry fest. He rode around on the fuss bus allllll day. Tropical storm Calvin left destruction in his wake everywhere he went (if you follow me on snap/stories you got a little sampling but that was nowhere near the extent of it). At one point I went into a room away from my kids and sat in a chair and cried. Within three minutes one of them found me (of course) gave me a hug, and we were all better (except Calvin -- I think this is his permanent state ). This photo is my version of thinking happy thoughts. Bougainvillea vibes ✌️️✨  And just like that, summer is back  Take me back to the fall weather of two days ago! Also, take me back to when this kid slept past 5 am and took naps. For a week now, between 4:30-5:30 am this kid climbs up on our bed over top of me and proceeds to squrim, poke, and annoy me till I get up. Quincy's sleeping till 6 or later FINALLY and now Calvin is waking me up!? And he refused to nap today (again) too. Seriously you guys, he's killin' me. He looks real cute in rain gear but if he does it again tonight he's headed to toddler military school. #sotiredineedanewwordfortired #calvins3rdyear #battlefieldmotherhood
