• {Real Wedding} Lauren & Robby: A Quirky + Relaxed Winery Wedding

    This couple wanted to keep things simple and relaxed and do most of their wedding themselves.  The florals were DIY, the decor and signs were DIY, the bride even made the groom’s tie, and the groom made all four types of beer served to the guests.  The bride even got a wedding day tattoo of the groom’s initials behind her ear.  That’s love!

    {favorite moment of the day}
    During the processional, when my father and I were coming up through the vineyard, Robby and I had asked the DJ to play the bridal march, then scratch the disc, and play the imperial march from Star Wars. I am a bit of a dork, but mostly thought it would be hilarious to have this ominous sound track playing as I approached the altar. Everyone started laughing and my nervousness disappeared completely (OK, almost completely). It took some of the seriousness out of the affair and reminded me that we were here to celebrate, and to be ourselves.

    {how did you make your wedding you?}
    We wanted to have a relaxed feel to our wedding. Robby and I have been together for 5 years, own a home together, have a pup together, so we kind of did things backwards when compared to tradition. We wanted to have a celebration of our union and to bring together our friends and family for a beautiful party. A stuffy formal ballroom just wouldn’t have felt appropriate. We lucked out with absolutely gorgeous weather, fine friends, and a truly great experience. 

    Don’t you love those bright yellow bouquets, and the DIY florals with the DIY painted mason jar containers?  And I so love the bride’s style – that birdcage veil, Claire Pettibone gown, rosette shoes, all on such a gorgeous bride.  And what a fun sense of humor – I’ve never heard of anyone playing the Imperial March from Star Wars as the Processional, and it might be the best thing ever.  I love that they let their personalities shine through, and created some humor in a usually super serious moment.

      How happy are these two? I love how much personality they put into their details i.e. the Star Wars theme music. How ideal to walk down the isle in a vineyard? Love it! 🙂

    •  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
       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  And just like that, Calvin is more little boy than baby  #calvins3rdyear #boyhood
