• {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?

    •  I know someday you won't want to hold my hand anymore, but I sure do hope that day is still very far away. Like 10-15 years maybe?  #battlefieldmotherhood  First pumpkin rolls of the season  I tried to make them in the shape of hearts like my mom does but Charlie said they look like pumpkins without stems and all I can see are boobs  #autumnhappylist
       Had the best time with my biggest boy at the @nhmla today. He's been there so many times since we have a membership that he has an order he likes to follow. But I surprised him by taking him on Dinofest weekend and he loved it so much he didn't even mind that it was too crowded to see the butterflies today or that we couldn't see everything. Sometimes it is so good for the both of us to have some time together, away from the babies. Like the old days. #charlesdashiell #mommacharliedateday #oldsfaveplacesinla  Quincy and I went to the #redCARpetsafety event today, which raises awareness for baby safety. Saw friends @uppababy @munchkin @ergobaby @babyganics & made some new ones like @thestep2company @showmeyourmumu as well. Quincy was making eyes at all the ladies, but he flirted the biggest with Caila with the good hair (which should totally be her hashtag). And all the new moms and moms-to-be were asking about this sling @mywildbird! Which made me think of a good #momtip: Taking Quincy on the go is so much easier thanks to babywearing and that @loyal_hana jumpsuit -- the hidden zippers make it so easy to nurse Quincy while wearing him in the sling. No one even knows I'm breastfeeding! Makes it so much easier to go places, especially with other little ones. I did a whole post on ohlovelyday.com about breastfeeding while babywearing if you want more tips! #OLDfavefinds #quincyrhys #babywearing #normalizebreastfeeding
