    DIY Wedding by Expressions PhotographyBest piece of advice? Whenever the planning becomes not fun, take a break and go on a date where you promise not to talk about anything wedding related.

    How did Chelsea keep her wedding budget-friendly? Be creative! Look outside of typical “wedding” resources. I found that if there was anything advertised as “wedding” related, it typically meant expensive. Thrift! Utilize the people around you and their talents.

    DIY Wedding by Expressions Photography Basically our wedding was an expression of what our future home together would be. We love inviting people into it, to relax and enjoy themselves and that’s what our day was about. We wanted it to reflect our personalities, our faith, and our love. Through the antiques and special touches, our home was transported to Northfield, MN to welcome our guests in. Anybody could tell you right when they arrived whose wedding this was and that was a beautiful thing.

    I really love that you feel like you know this couple by seeing their wedding – it’s totally a sign that you made it YOU.  And the color palette and rustic touches make it feel so homey and fun – like a big family picnic wedding!

    •  Someone was so excited about #maythe4th that I had to post ANOTHER photo. And if you follow me on snapchat you know that person was actually me. #imthatmomnow #maythe4thbewithyou #starwars #allroadsleadtostarwars #quincyrhys  May the 4th be with you. #maythe4th
       I've been doing a lot of succulent planting and shelf and mantle styling and rearranging this week. I think I'm love having our #rambleandroost CA string art above the mantle. But once I get a @palomasnest silhouette of Quincy I'm gonna have to rethink the whole thing! Those make the best Mother's Day gift, by the way. It's too late for a finished product but you can always do a gift card   In the last week we conquered a long walk in the stroller, a birthday party in the Ergo, moved you into your bassinet, and had an amazing night of sleep. You started reaching for things, and (based on a ridiculous number of blow outs) grew out of size 2 diapers. And you almost never stopped smiling. #14weeks #quincysweekbyweek #quincyrhys
