• 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!

    •  Charlie's teacher gifts for this year are ready to be delivered. Same gift inside, different packaging outside! I'll share what's inside and how to make it tomorrow on the blog (hint, I've been sharing peeks all week). Tag and twine are from the @target dollar bin, bag is @ohjoy for Target, and tree and ornament are DIY (see 2 posts back for link to ornament how-to). #ohlovelyDIY #holidaydiy
       You're 4 months old (plus a few days) and while you look like a chubby monkey, turns out you're only in the 11th percentile for weight at 13.3 lbs. Your brother was 13.5 lbs at this age, so you are only a teeny bit smaller but you're a full inch taller at 25.5 inches (71st percentile!) Since you sleep through the night the doc said not to be concerned. You took your vaccinations better than your brother too, but remind me never to do both of your shots at the same time again. You couldn't pay me enough or give me enough wine to do that a second time. You're chattering, belly laughing, rolling, tracking my every movement, sleeping 11-12 straight hours at night, grabbing for toys, sucking any of your fingers (or fist) you can get in your mouth, watching me eat, and napping like shit. Month 3 to month 4 has been a little rocky, but you are honestly the easiest and sweetest baby ever so it's really not all that bad. It's like you make my Grinch heart grow three sizes every hour of every day.
