• {Real Wedding} Amanda & JR: Simple & Classic Vintage DIY Wedding

    Sometimes it is refreshing to see a simple, classic-with-a-touch-of-vintage wedding.  Today is one of those times.  There isn’t an abundance of “stuff” or of DIY projects, although the bride did DIY the favors and florals.  Sweet and simple is on the agenda for today!  Enjoy.

    A little bit from the bride:
    I wanted to keep things simple and classic and a touch vintage, so details like a bird cage veil, a magnolia arch and a collection of found bottles & vases all got me really excited as I started to pull things together. My dress had the slightest tinge of pink to it so I played off that with flowers in a range on peaches, pinks and olive greens. We ended up finding all of the flowers we used to decorate at Whole Foods, the grocery store and then a small local florist. And my mom was a huge part of bringing it all together. When she got into town, she ran countless errands with me – tracking down just the right flowers, scouring the city for the perfect hair accessories to hold down my veil, and gathering countless bottles. It all came together surprisingly smoothly, though.

    The combination of the gorgeous photos by Moss & Isaac and the lovely venue (Parkside Mansion) showcase the bride’s vision perfectly I think!  What do you think?  Is simple and classic your style?

    •  7 months old today, but momma won't be taking your 7 month photo today (probably not tomorrow either) because I'm so tired from your sleeping more like a 7 week old than a 7 month old. Did you not get the 3rd baby memo? If you don't give me more sleep soon I'm going to pull a Lindsay Lohan and check myself into a nice facility due to my "exhaustion" (except in my case it really will be exhaustion). Then who will you wake up all night, huh? So can you try and just wake me up once a night? Instead of 3? Deal? DEAL!!!? #seriouslysotired #quincyrhys  Mama said there'd be days like this... Just not 200 of them in a row  good thing the company's cute. Also, currently loving this playmat from @lollalandusa - it's big and soft and cleans easily. And now we can practice sitting without worrying about head bumps when he falls over  #quincyrhys #OLDfavefinds
       I can hardly believe Quincy was ever this tiny. And now he's 7 months tomorrow. Since we are out of the infant baby gear/clothing phase, I'm selling it all at a deep discount now at @ohlovelydaysale (including this playmat!) and more this weekend if you are local. See the flyer a few posts back and head to my sale feed. Tag your expecting friends or the mom's of new babes that are in So Cal! #OLDsamplesale  Got one little corner of the boys' soon-to-be-shared bedroom done today. Once the bunkbeds arrive I may totally rearrange things but for now I'm loving this @thelandofnod table for reading, doing puzzles, and there is a hidden bin underneath where I have a Lego topper hidden so we can make it a Lego table too. And store those puzzles with all of the little pieces that drive me insane  Can't wait to finish and share more of this room (and move Cal in so I can move Quincy into the nursery and maybe get a little more sleep!) You can see the design process and inspiration that I did with the design services team from The Land of Nod on the blog as well (link in profile). #projectsharedboysbedroom #calvins3rdyear
