• {Real Wedding} Jamie & Doug: Pretty DIY Wedding with Vintage Charm

    This wedding today is the epitome of pretty.  Pretty colors, pretty bride, pretty dress, and pretty images from Kay English.  Kay does something with light that is just AAAAMAZING.  Seriously, she just GETS light.  Her talent combined with this lovely wedding is perfect for this Monday morning.
    Some words from the bride on their DIY details and how they made their wedding ‘them’:
    We really enjoy expressing our personalities and interests through decor/little details – so our wedding was such a great chance to do this!  My mom was a huge help to us and was so involved in each of the DIY projects that we did.  I’m so thankful for her help and creative ideas.  We made a list of some of our favorite DIY details:

    -Inspiration Fabric: the fabric was one of the first things selected, knowing ahead that we liked the colors cornflower blue and yellow.  The fabric by Heather Bailey, “Pineapple Brocade – Ice” with accent “Primed Tile – Canary”  This fabric was used for the flower girl’s dress, table covers for the Sweetheart table and place card table.  This fabric had matching card stock as well, that would be used throughout in additional projects to coordinate (table signs, place cards, etc.)

    -my pink paisley bike was something we wanted to incorporate into our day because we were on a bike ride when Doug proposed to me.  This bike was decorated with vintage type cans and tissue balls with a “Just Married” sign, along with a daisy bouquet placed in the wicker basket.  Kay ended up using this for some fun pictures, too 🙂

    -cookie table was displayed and supplied with cookies homemade by some special women in our lives that had sentimental connections.

    -the table signs were locations instead of numbers – places that were significant to us as a couple. Written on the back were some memories or acknowledgments for the guests to enjoy.

    -in lieu of favors for the guests we opted to make a donation to a Children’s Orphanage in China that we’d been closely connected to.  Pictures of the individual children that would benefit from the donation were printed on cards and placed at each seat.

    How great is that charity favor!?  I really love that idea.  And there were so many great DIY ideas to get inspired from as well.  I love the baby’s breath pouf florals and all the pretty patterns incorporated into the decor.  Oh, and a pink paisley bike!?  I NEED one 🙂  How does this wedding inspire you?

I was featured on @loyal_hana blog as part of their motherhood series, so if you want to give it a read and hear about my typical (hot mess) day or how I (don't) balance work and mothering head to their profile to find the link to their site. I pretty much live in their nursing-friendly clothes and was honored to be featured. 3. Charlie took this picture (and basically directed me for the shot) and it makes me really really happy   Putting the finishing touches on the boys' bedroom and had to stop to admire the magic that the morning light and their @babyjives mobile was making. ✨☁️⭐️❤️✨#charlieandcalsroomredo
       Can a person be your happy place? Because I'm pretty certain that Quincy is mine ☺️✨ #quincyrhys #thatdimpletho  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 ✌️️✨
