• {Styled Shoot} Vintage Farm-to-Table Wedding in Southern California

    I think styled shoots can be a great opportunity for planning brides to get inspired or find ideas they can make their own.  My favorite styled shoots are simple, budget-friendly, and full of pretty.  Today’s vintage farm-to-table inspired shoot is no exception.  Here’s a bit about the concept from the vendors involved.

    Rustic vintage elegance was the theme for this Southern California wedding shoot by ae martin photography and Leslie Miller Event Design. The details were inspired by sweet romance and the carefree days.

    The hors d’ouvres table was adorned with vintage classic books, antique tea cups, and mason jars filled with lavender lemonade.  Kiwi slices were added for a dash of summer green.  The chef from Heirloom Gatherings chose simple yet delicious and colorful treats like bruschetta, cheese boards, and s’mores for dessert.  French macarons added a classic sweet touch.  The dinner table, set in a quiet meadow, was full of hand-me-down china and glassware.  Old fashioned ink well jars served as candle holders.  Homemade blackberry jam jars and candied almond satchels for favors finished the look.

    The florals by Flowerchild were designed with a soft natural color palette, including pink blush roses, dusty miller, white dahlias, bay leaves, lavender, and amarathus hand-tied with ivory ribbon, pearls, and embellished with a vintage broach.  The bride’s hair was set in soft curls adorned with handmade hair pieces by Acute Designs.  The bride wore several different dresses; a classic Maggie Sottero, a flirty tea length gown hand made by Peppermint Pretty, and a trendy blush colored Rodarte.  Her shoes, of course, were old cowboy boots.  Her earrings were handmade from crystals recycled from an old wedding gown.  The groom’s textured tan clothing and suspenders fit in perfectly with the farm setting.

    I honestly don’t know what I love the most from this shoot.  The bouquet is perfection, those dresses (especially that blush Rodarte!) are fab, and that beautifully set table in a meadow…I die!  And I love the farm-to-table menu.  In fact, it inspired a post I’ll be sharing next week, so be sure to check back.  Hint: it might be a little cheesy.

    •  Apparently you wanted to sleep in your own room as well, because last night your brothers bunked up and you got the nursery all to yourself and slept like a champ. 7:30-3:30, quick feeding, then up at 6:30. Which means I got my first real night's sleep in 7 months. Encore encore!!!  #quincyrhys quincysmilestones  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
       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
