    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?

    •  When your shades and your shirt are meant to be  #charlesdashiell  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
