• Classic Wedding In Laguna Beach: Ritsuko & Sean

    Classic Laguna Beach Wedding | Leila Brewster Photography & The Special Day on ohlovelyday.com

    When this pretty Laguna Beach wedding landed in my inbox I just knew I had to share it. Having attended a Laguna Beach wedding at very fancy hotel once myself (Paul McCartney and his then-wife Heather Mills watched from their balcony and even sent champagne to the couple during their reception) I know how breathtaking this setting really was. Planned perfectly by The Special Day and captured by Leila Brewster, it’s one of those classic weddings every little girl dreams of.

    The wedding had touches of Ritsuko’s Japanese history – she handmade origami cranes that were at each place setting and brought in a translator to translate the ceremony.

    Ritsuko is from Japan and Sean learned to speak Japanese to seamlessly fit into her life.  They wanted a destination wedding and chose to have an intimate reception at the Ritz in Laguna Beach. All of their guests traveled in from the East Coast and her family from Japan. Southern California was their compromise – have their guests meet in the middle! A great start to a marriage, don’t you think? Be sure to check out the gallery for even more lovely images from Leila Brewster! I especially love the black and whites. And how fabulous is that reception dress!?

    And be sure to check out the video from Jakfoto Films too!

    •  Got one little corner of the boys' soon-to-be-shared bedroom done today. Once the bunkbeds arrive I may totally rearrange things but for now I'm loving this @thelandofnod table for reading, doing puzzles, and there is a hidden bin underneath where I have a Lego topper hidden so we can make it a Lego table too. And store those puzzles with all of the little pieces that drive me insane  Can't wait to finish and share more of this room (and move Cal in so I can move Quincy into the nursery and maybe get a little more sleep!) You can see the design process and inspiration that I did with the design services team from The Land of Nod on the blog as well (link in profile). #projectsharedboysbedroom #calvins3rdyear  Waking up to the news of the devastation in Italy -- I left a piece of my heart there when we were on our honeymoon (this photo was taken in Orvieto). Sending thoughts and love to everyone there. So so sad.
       And just like that, Calvin is more little boy than baby  #calvins3rdyear #boyhood  L O V E ❤️ It really is all you need. What the world needs. What we all need. Am I right? #30weeks #quincysweekbyweek #quincyrhysambassadoroflove Adorable design by @heymamacase's sweet son Eddy and available in her shop @mamacaseprints
