• {Real Wedding} Melissa & Bryan: Rustic Fall Wedding at Camarillo Ranch

    It’s officially fall!  And even though it still doesn’t feel like it here (did anyone watch the Emmy’s last night and see how hot it was for everyone?) I’m determined to get into the fall spirit, and this rustic ranch wedding is just the thing to start of this fall week!

    We used dozens of old lace or embroidered table clothes that our grandmothers or aunts have had, to cover the hay bales that our guests sat on during the ceremony. It was a great way to include our extended family in our day. rustic fall wedding at camarillo ranch | photos by epic imagery

    {Advice for planning couples}
    Plan well ahead of time. It was important for my husband and I to really enjoy each aspect of our wedding day and we planned out how to do that with our talented photographer and our amazing wedding coordinator. rustic fall wedding at camarillo ranch | photos by epic imagery

    Any special traditions?
    My garter was a garter that is being passed down to every new bride in my husband’s family. It was originally my husband’s cousin’s garter, she passed it along to me and I will pass it on to the next bride. We have a box that each bride signs with her maiden name, wedding date and her new husband’s name. rustic fall wedding at camarillo ranch | photos by epic imagery

    To make my wedding me, I stuck to my initial idea of how I envisioned my day and really ran with that. I wanted my day to have meaning to not only for me but for my guests too so that was all in the little details. 
     
    I’m a big fan of the hay-bale seating in the round for the ceremony.  And the florals are perfection, don’t you think?  So many lovely details in this wedding!  Did it get you in the mood for fall?
    Oh, and I just found out today that it is this couple’s one year wedding anniversary!  How crazy is it that I randomly featured their wedding on their anniversary without even knowing!?  Wish them a happy day!

      We had so much fun…I want to do it again. Loved seeing my amazingly beautiful daughter and son in law get married. All the details were perfect. Thank you Danny, Hallie, Amy and everyone who made this the most PERFECT day. Marie

    •  Not gonna lie, it's been reeeeeaally nice having an almost empty house this week while the big boys are out of town and it's just Quincy and me. It's so peaceful and clean.  But when I get sent pictures like this of my boys with my cutie pie nephew Braxton, I start missing them something fierce and can't wait to see them tomorrow. #theadventuresofcharlieandcalvin #brothersandcousins #sooooooomanyboys  Temporary post: I'm looking for the cutest non tacky apparel for moms and littles for 4th of July themed blog post. If you have something super cute and available online, shoot me an email to chandra@ohlovelyday.com with subject line "July 4th apparel" and a photo (flat lay preferable but on model ok) at least 600 pixels wide, price, and link to item. I'll choose a variety of my favorite 15 and will email you if yours was chosen. And tag a shop if you have seen something cute that I should check out. TIA (these cute swim shorts are by @trendybubs btw )
       Happy 4 months my chubby bunny! It's crazy to think that 8 years ago today your pops asked me to marry him and now here you are already 4 months old. You are happy and smiling 90% of the time and still screamy 10% of the time. Much better, but your unpredictable screaminess still pops up at the times when I'm trying to get out of the house or eat, usually both at once. I can take a hint. You are 17 lbs and almost 26 inches - putting you in the 90th % for height and 80th for weight. Oh, and your head is in the 94th % - which I'm fine with since it was a nice slightly below average size when you were born. You are hilariously huge  Your daddy says if you keep growing like this people are going to start calling you Hodor You have rolled from belly to back a few times (a small miracle given your size and how little floor time you've been able to have due to your reflux), scoot yourself with your feet when laying on your back, have reached for and grabbed a toy, and are a chatterbox. You like music, like being held in sitting and standing positions, and really wanna eat your hands. You are a champion napper -- usually taking a 2-3 hr one in the morning and a good afternoon one as well. I can even put you down without soothing you to sleep first and you fall asleep on your own - something that your brothers didn't do until at least 6 months old. You're sleeping from around 7:30 pm - 7 am, waking around 3:30 for a snack (you're totally not hungry either, you just miss me). You're just the cutest with your fat rolls and cheek dimps and duck fluff hair and big gummy smiles and you have everyone of us completely smitten.  #quincysmonthbymonth  We didn't remember to take his 4 month photos today (we'll just pretend the 26th is tomorrow ) but we did manage a photo for #rednoseday. Don't forget to donate! @rednosedayusa ❣#doitforthekids
