    Our venue, Patten Chapel at the University of Tennessee in Chattanooga, was the perfect place for us to get married. It was very important for us to be married in a church and Patten Chapel was just the most beautiful, intimate venue.

    Almost everything was DIY by us and our family.  We designed our own invites, and my mom hand-drew them (she also drew our guestbook thumbprint tree!)  My mom, grandmother, and two aunts did all of my florals with me.  And my grandmother made all of the bow ties by hand: my groom’s was made from pieces of my dress.  We are just SO blessed to have so much personal involvement by our family.

    I loved every single detail about our wedding. I put a lot of thought in how I wanted our wedding to look and how I wanted to represent myself and Joel.  I love classic, vintage things and I am a very sentimental person, so I loved having my family involved in every detail; that just made everything so much more special.

    Doesn’t this just seem like the happiest day?  I love how much the family helped create this wedding day for Briana and Joel and how much was DIY without seeming like it was DIY: DIY done right and done well!  Aren’t those bow ties fabulous!?  What is your favorite detail?

    •  It seems like only yesterday I was bringing Charlie here at this age (there's even a video of Charlie wearing this exact shirt there in the #charlielovestheyellownoodles feed!) And now #calvinlovestheyellownoodles too. I'm gonna blink and Quincy will be doing the same thing. They grow up way too fast -- I'm so grateful to have this time with them. #thesearethedays #calvins2ndyear  Took the littles to @lacma to wear them out, but I think this one wore me out instead  #calvins2ndyear #OLDsfaveplacesinLA #lacma
       Love your guts from that fluffy hair on your head to those curled up toes ❤️ And don't forget to check out the blog today for a post on our experience with infant reflux and 7 tips for dealing with it, plus what products and treatments worked for us. Link in profile - tag your infant reflux and colicky baby parents. #22weeks #quincysweekbyweek #quincyrhys #whatquincywears #infantreflux #colic #momtips  If there's one bit of wisdom I could share with other parents that I have learned with absolute certainty as a mom of three it is this: sleep begets sleep. The better they sleep, the more they sleep. The more they sleep, the better they sleep. It might not make sense that putting your baby down at 7 instead of 8 or 9 will get him to sleep longer, but by god it does. I'm gonna share all of my tips on getting your babes to be good sleepers. But first I wanted to talk about infant reflux -- our experience with it and what has worked for us in dealing with it -- because I know many of you are also struggling with it. And it's just beyond the pits. So head to the blog tomorrow to read that post and I promise to get the sleep one up soon. I feel like I could write a whole book on it at this point. Maybe I should write a whole book on it... 🤔 Also, This picture of Quincy from his nap today is totally distracting me from getting any work done at all. Because those cheeks and lips are all I can handle right now  #quincyrhys
