• {Real Wedding} Tara & Jason: Pretty Blue Southern DIY Wedding

    I just love a good Southern wedding, don’t you?  Spanish moss, sweet tea, Southern charm…what’s not to love?  Between the soft blue color palette and the absolutely fab DIY glass chandelier that hung over the ceremony, this wedding fits the bill.

    Advice to couples planning now?  I would say to start early and do tons of research. I think if you do your homework you can be creative and original without breaking the bank. It’s also so important to find the right vendors and that doesn’t happen overnight. I feel like our wedding day was so much fun and stress free because I had put so much time into the planning and I knew I could trust my vendors 100% to carry out my vision.

    The one detail that was probably the most memorable was the glass globe candle chandelier at the ceremony. A friend with a metal workshop whipped up a stainless steel frame for me and I tied individual glass hanging globes with tea lights to the frame.  We hung the chandelier from rope on a tree branch that hung right over Jason and I at the ceremony. I thought it looked great as the sun was setting.

    I would have to say that the attention to detail was my personal mark on the wedding day. I really tried to make everything individual to us from the custom designed programs and menus to the 5 different flavored cakes on antique stands and the DIY glass globe chandelier at the ceremony. I wanted there to be something beautiful and original everywhere you looked, I hope that came across to our guests.
     
    I die over that chandelier!  And the shades of blue and gorgeous florals are pretty fantastic too.  Oh, and take note on that ceremony decor of candles lining the aisle.  A super budget friendly idea and just as beautiful as florals.  Maybe even more beautiful…  What do you think?

      Love the details of this wedding and the chandelier! I also used the hanging bulbs for my wedding – a DIY project where I added silk roses dipped in glitter and hung them in the trees along with crystals 🙂

      The Spanish moss is unreal! This wedding is classic and will never go out of style! So elegant 🙂

       On weekends, we nurse, cuddle, and nap together and it is my favorite. With the other boys I was always trying to get stuff done while they were napping. Since this is my last baby, I'm trying to really soak up all the moments I can -- one day I'll have plenty of time to get stuff done. For now I'll just be a hot mess that made the most of this baby time. Whenever I get a bit anxious about not getting things done, I re-read my favorite poem about motherhood: Mother, oh mother, come shake out your cloth! Empty the dustpan, poison the moth, Hang out the washing and butter the bread, Sew on a button and make up a bed. Where is the mother whose house is so shocking? She's up in the nursery, blissfully rocking! Oh, I've grown as shiftless as Little Boy Blue (Lullaby, rockaby, lullaby, loo). Dishes are waiting and bills are past due (Pat-a-cake, darling, and peek, peekaboo). The shopping's not done and there's nothing for stew And out in the yard there's a hullabaloo But I'm playing Kanga and this is my Roo. Look! Aren't her eyes the most wonderful hue? (Lullaby, rockaby, lullaby loo.) Oh, cleaning and scrubbing will wait till tomorrow, But children grow up, as I've learned to my sorrow. So quiet down, cobwebs. Dust, go to sleep. I'm rocking my baby. Babies don't keep. Song for a Fifth Child By Ruth Hulburt Hamilton #battlefieldmotherhood #mommaandquincyselfies  Saturday mornings are about bros, basketball and babywearing. Side note: loving the ring sling for babywearing in this heatwave. It's the least hot of all of my babywearing options. #mywildbird #babywearing #quincyrhys #OLDsfavefinds
