• Colorful + Quirky Philadelphia Wedding: Shira & Ryan

    If I’ve said it once I’ve said it a hundred times, I LOVE when a bride reader tells me how much they used Oh Lovely Day in their wedding planning. And this bride definitely took our mantra, “make your wedding YOU” to heart when she planned this colorful and quirky beauty. It’s so full of personality.

    Advice for couples planning now? Know your vision and stick to it. That doesn’t mean be unwavering in your opinions, but make sure that every choice you make ultimately makes you & your groom happy. We knew we had to stick to a few ground rules: budget, geography and guest count – but after that we made sure each piece of the puzzle was exactly what we wanted.

    Ryan and I are big foodies, and proud Philadelphians. So when we found out (a few years before we were engaged…) that it was possible to have a wedding in one of Philly’s biggest food landmarks, Reading Terminal Market, we knew that’s just what we’d do – despite the extra effort it would take working with a non-traditional wedding venue. After that, we picked bright fun colors and worked with amazing friends & vendors who understood our vision to help bring the day we dreamed of to life.

    There was definitely something amazing about having the Mummers play and lead the entire wedding from the ceremony, across the busiest street in Center City, to our reception – now that’s a way to stop traffic!

    How did you make your wedding YOU? We made sure that it was a delicious, unique, philly-focused, FUN experience for us and our guests. And it definitely was.

    •  It's like the mothership calling him home. #littleboywindowshopping #calvins3rdyear  These three are why I'm now a morning person. Starting each day with smiles and kisses from these boys is what fuels me for the day. And coffee. Lots and lots of coffee  #thefredrickboys
       You've had quite a milestone month from 7-8 months. You're scooting (with some speed), crawling, sitting up on your own, and sleeping through the night (with one feeding around 4:30-5) pretty consistently. You totally want to mix it up with your brothers -- sometimes I think you are trying to jump out of my lap to get to them. You and Charlie have the sweetest relationship and you and Cal are best bros. They are both so loving towards you and patient when you pull their hair or grab the toy they have. I wish they were that patient with each other  They both watch out for you, retrieve things you drop, laugh when you're doing silly things like shaking your head like crazy, and are always looking for you. You're eating solids three times a day, still love to nurse, still have no teeth, are constantly babbling (dadadada is common), and are amazingly strong. You are 21.5 lbs (75th %) and are 90th % for height. And you still don't like me out of your sight -- all the heart eyes for momma and I love it. You're quite a flirt with everyone though but aren't loving when men get too close or talk to you too much. Except for daddy -- you're a big fan of him. You went from being my hardest baby to my easiest of the three right now. Thanks for the reprieve. Your happiness is infectious and each dimpled smile you give brightens everyone's day. Happy 8 months buddy. Love you times a million. #quincysmonthbymonth  I know someday you won't want to hold my hand anymore, but I sure do hope that day is still very far away. Like 10-15 years maybe?  #battlefieldmotherhood
