• {Color Crush} Indigo Wedding

    color crush on indigo by oh lovely day

    I’ve been majorly crushing on some indigo lately.  It actually started years ago with an eye shadow.  It was love at first sight and ever since I’ve been obsessed with that deep inky shade of blue.  Then I saw this on instagram from Kristina of Lovely Morning and 100 Layer Cake and my obsession was reignited.  I’m now determined to dye every white tee I own indigo (and a few of Charlie’s too, since they don’t stay white anyways).  Then I thought, “how cool would this be, translated into wedding inspiration!?”  But first…

    I love the shades of indigo and how unique each pattern of the tie dye can be.  And the color and patterns inspire other translations of pattern and palette.  It made me think of cobalt blue china, of denim, of vintage bottles.  Of all the things you could bring into a wedding.

    Just think of the possibilities with an indigo wedding!  You could go modern or rustic, vintage or classic.  But I really envision it as an outdoor summer wedding.  What about you?  Crushing on indigo too?

      Beautiful! Love indigo and how it looks so crisp against white in the beach tablescape image. That ring is stunning!

      What a lovely color palette. Like those blue flowers in the mason jars.

       We had our first date 20 years ago today when we were practically babies in high school. We were on and off (and on and off and on and off) through college, survived a 3 year long distance relationship before there was FaceTime and when one of us didn't even have a cell phone. We've done 11 years of sharing a bathroom, almost 6 years of marriage, and now almost 3 babies. Some days have been so easy, and others are incredibly hard. Each day we make a choice to love each other and enjoy this beautiful life together. And to do it our way, following our dreams and raising our children to be open minded, good and kind people. Our way, ride or die, till the wheels fall off. Me and you. Happy 20 year date-a-versary my social media-less hunk of a husband.❤️ We should have gotten a sitter  //  by @hazelnutphoto from our gender reveal, which I'll be sharing next week!
       Had a super #happymail day thanks to the 2016 calendar preview from @papersource. At first I was all like "the color, the design, the pretty, oh my! " but then I thought "2016, January, due date, holy shit! " I feel like the next 6 months just flashed before my eyes. Slow down 2015. The calendars and planners are real purty tho. #mypscalendar
