  • {Real Wedding} Jill & Tim (& three little ladies): Sweet+ Personal DIY Wedding

    Warning: preg_replace(): Compilation failed: nothing to repeat at offset 97 in /home/ohlove5/public_html/ohlovelyday.com/wp-content/plugins/jetpack/class.photon.php on line 332

    This wedding had me with the DIY details and the sweet little girls.  Jill’s three daughters were very involved in the wedding and they are just too adorable for words!

    I mean, seriously, HOW CUTE are those little girls!?  And I love this family photo at the end!  Here’s a little bit from Jill, the bride, on how they made their wedding “THEM”:

    We had fun personalizing the wedding with a few DIY projects: spray painting mason jars and accenting with lace trim, decorating the reception tables with runners made out of plastic lace tablecloths from US Toy, the blessing tree with lights that had cards that we stamped with the T+J, the florist did moss initials with beautiful ribbon, my maid of honor made all kinds of things including a flower basket for my daughter out of an old hat, a sign for my junior bridesmaid that read “here comes the bride” on one side and had our theme T + J on the other side. 
    The day was so amazing but I think my favorite moment was the time right before the wedding where we spoke andtouched hands but didn’t see each other as we stood on opposite sides of a door, the anticipation of seeing each other and becoming husband and wife – and the picture that captured that moment is priceless to me.
    I love the sweet personal details and how included the daughters were in this wedding.  Just precious!  What do you think?  What part is your favorite?

      Beautiful wedding. love the touch of the wish tree and engraved spoons. But why are they spelling out the word “Dykes” in family photo at the end? I am really hoping this is their last name..?

      Had such a blast meeting with the bride and helping to bring her ideas into reality. So many wonderful people coming together to help and witness this truly touching union. Thank you oh-so-lovely for posting this and to the wonderful photographer who captured all of this.

      What is Dykes in the last photo? Anyway, they have a precious wedding and it’s so cute that daughters of the bride were helping her with the wedding. Indeed they are so cute. I love the colors because it’s too soft. Love is in the air. Groomsday

      Dykes is actually the groom’s last name (and now Jill’s)…but NOT the girls. They have a dad, and his last name is not Dykes.

        Relax, Anonymous! It is pretty obvious that the girls came before this wedding.

    •  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  The look you get when your mom puts on some JT for your photoshoot.

       There were very few baby things I hadn't yet tried by the time I had Quincy but I hadn't really used a sling before. I got my first sling when I was still pregnant with Q and tried it with Calvin, but once Cal was walking he never wanted to be carried. He's far too busy for all that. So Quincy is the first baby I've used a sling with, and I feel like I really missed out with the other two. I had and loved other carriers with them (and still do) but there is just something about the sling that is magical and it is my carrier of choice right now. It is convenient (you can keep it threaded and just throw it on), it is cozy, it doesn't tightly wrap behind my back which always makes me sweaty, and I can nurse while Quincy is in it which has been a lifesaver. I'm actually nursing him in this photo! I'm sharing photos from our recent visit to the pumpkin patch and how I got to do all the things with my family while wearing Quincy in the sling because I didn't have to stay with him in the stroller or go find a place to nurse him. He chilled, ate, and napped in my sling. And because I love it so much I'm teaming up with @mywildbird to give one reader a sling of their choice! Head to my blog to enter (link in profile) and tell your friends  #OLDfavefinds #babywearing #mywildbird #giveaway #fredrickfamfallfun  Never did I ever expect to be so outnumbered by boys. I get asked so often if we're going to have one more baby so I can "try for a girl." It kind of feels like the person asking is insinuating that I'm missing out on something. While I always pictured myself as a mom of girls (or at least one) and had to mourn the idea I had in my mind of braiding hair and getting mother-daughter pedis, prom and wedding dress shopping, and ballet lessons, I've never felt that I'm missing out on anything getting to be the mom of my three sons. When someone says to me "wow, you have your hands full" or "you must be tired" I just smile. Because I am tired. And my hands are full. But so is my heart.  #tiredeyesfullhandscantlose #momofboys #battlefieldmotherhood #mommaandquincyselfies #mommacharlieselfies #charlieandquincy And I'm hosting a @mywildbird sling giveaway on my blog tomorrow, so be on the lookout for that!
