• {Inspiration Board} My Wedding Inspiration: Vintage California-Chic

    Since I’ll be posting all about my wedding and sharing my photos with you next week, today I wanted to share the board that I made WAY back in late 2008 (I think) as the inspiration for my wedding.  And I still love the board.  It is the exact same one I’d use if I got married now.  Wouldn’t change a thing!

    {inspiration} vintage california chic
    {colors} canary, avocado, ocean, bisque

    I knew I was getting married at a beautiful outdoor venue overlooking the Santa Monica Bay, so I wanted to incorporate nature into my color palette and decor.  At the same time I wanted the style to reflect me and the vintage things I love.  What resulted is the vintage California chic style above.  And you can go here to how it translated in my own wedding photos.

       I don't know if Calvin has an idea there's another brother cooking and he's trying to reclaim his territory, or if he's giving baby brother hugs, but he is constantly planting himself right here these days. Meanwhile, the littlest one is now kicking around making himself known and now can be felt from the outside. Almost #19weeks #ohlovelydaybump #calvins2ndyear
       On Calvin's list of faves: holiday weekends with no school so he gets lots of play time with Charlie. #somuchenergy #theadventuresofcharlieandcalvin
