• {Real Wedding} Georgia & Brian: Intimate and Lovely DIY Wedding

    This wedding was DIY (including the florals!) from head to toe, if a wedding has a head and a toe.  And it proves that rain doesn’t ruin your wedding day.  In fact, it could make it better!  Pretty pink peonies, a pink and purple palette, sparkly Toms, fantastic vintage elements, mismatched bridesmaids, mason jar beverage glasses, the bride’s cardigan…I just love so many things about this wedding.  LOVE LOVE LOVE!

    From the very talented photographer, Athena Blude’ Photography:

    It ended up lightly raining, but the bride was determined to not move their outdoor ceremony where guests met at a farm, walked through suspended doors and sat on haystacks. It was an incredibly intimate and touching ceremony with only family in attendance. Afterwards, the reception was moved to a quaint club, where every piece of square footage was decorated with thoughtful and creative DIY details. All of which, the bride and groom had help with from their immediate family. It was such sweet and lovely wedding full of inspiration.

    This wedding makes me wish it had rained for my wedding.  How nuts is that?  THAT is how much I love this wedding.  Props and congrats to the happy couple!

       Walking his catwalk, back and forth and back and forth, all the live long day. #calvins2ndyear
       This is Ella the Great, one of Charlie's good buddies and the daughter of a dear friend. Ella is 4 1/2 and was diagnosed on February 23rd with a Hepatoblatoma (liver) tumor that had metastasized to her lung. What followed was surgery to biopsy the tumor and a chest port implantation, chemotherapy, major surgery to remove the tumors, then more and more chemotherapy. Each round of chemo brought more challenges and more hospital stays. She and her family have braved each of these with such spirit and strength. It is beyond inspirational. It puts things into perspective. Ella is starting her last cycle of chemo today after low counts and complications kept pushing it back. With her momma's permission I wanted to share this today because I think we could all use a little perspective and I think she could use as much love, light, good thoughts, prayers, positivity, and whatever else you believe in or do, and whatever else you can send her way. All Ella wants is to be done with this and go to Hawaii with her family to celebrate. She is a #warriorprincess and she inspires me every single day. Go Ella!!!!  // if anyone wants to send any love directly to Ella, email me at chandra@ohlovelyday.com
