• Sneak Peek at Martha Stewart Weddings Fall Issue

    Fall Martha Stewart Weddings Preview

    The fall issue of Martha Stewart Weddings debuts today, and as usual it’s chock full of fabulous wedding inspiration. And we have an exclusive sneak peek of one of their real wedding features, the Santa Barbara wedding of Emily & David photographed by Jose Villa. Laid back elegance with Americana touches, dreamy images from one of my favorite photographers, and a bride who just happens to design a denim line I’m obsessed with – what’s not to love?Fall Martha Stewart Weddings Preview Fall Martha Stewart Weddings Preview


    The touches of nautical inspiration, air mail details, and kraft paper in this invitation suite has me swooning. It it really sets the tone for the rest of the relaxed celebration.

    Fall Martha Stewart Weddings PreviewEvery detail of a relaxed and fun vibe was thought of by Mindy Rice & Lisa Vorce, including those bags of popcorn, which served as guest snack, ceremony program, and recessional popcorn toss! That was followed up with games, a silhouette artist, a bluegrass band, and family-style food.

    Tablescapes were decorated with paper sacks of ripe red cherries, amber glass vessels, and floral arrangements. And the table numbers are one of my favorite ideas ever – so be sure to check out the full story here to see those, and so much more.

    You can see the rest of this lovely wedding and more in the latest issue of Martha Stewart Weddings, on newsstands now!

      Great wedding inspiration! Love the soft colors! The bride on the cover is gorgeous – her dress and hair and makeup are perfect! Stunning location as well!
      Every bride should get this.
      As a wedding photographer, I have to say that this is wedding photography at its best! All of the bridal portraits are fantastic!

      Any ideas where the red, white and blue prize ribbons are from in the invitation suite from Emily and Divid’s Relaxed Fit wedding?

      Any tips would be much appreciated!

    •  You know what is a great motivator? Not wanting to be outdone by your big bro. Cause look who's pulling himself up, so he can keep up  #quincysmilestones #calvinandquincy #lawdhelpme #charlieandcalsroomredo  There were very few baby things I hadn't yet tried by the time I had Quincy but I hadn't really used a sling before. I got my first sling when I was still pregnant with Q and tried it with Calvin, but once Cal was walking he never wanted to be carried. He's far too busy for all that. So Quincy is the first baby I've used a sling with, and I feel like I really missed out with the other two. I had and loved other carriers with them (and still do) but there is just something about the sling that is magical and it is my carrier of choice right now. It is convenient (you can keep it threaded and just throw it on), it is cozy, it doesn't tightly wrap behind my back which always makes me sweaty, and I can nurse while Quincy is in it which has been a lifesaver. I'm actually nursing him in this photo! I'm sharing photos from our recent visit to the pumpkin patch and how I got to do all the things with my family while wearing Quincy in the sling because I didn't have to stay with him in the stroller or go find a place to nurse him. He chilled, ate, and napped in my sling. And because I love it so much I'm teaming up with @mywildbird to give one reader a sling of their choice!

       And just like that, summer is back  Take me back to the fall weather of two days ago! Also, take me back to when this kid slept past 5 am and took naps. For a week now, between 4:30-5:30 am this kid climbs up on our bed over top of me and proceeds to squrim, poke, and annoy me till I get up. Quincy's sleeping till 6 or later FINALLY and now Calvin is waking me up!? And he refused to nap today (again) too. Seriously you guys, he's killin' me. He looks real cute in rain gear but if he does it again tonight he's headed to toddler military school. #sotiredineedanewwordfortired #calvins3rdyear #battlefieldmotherhood  The look you get when your mom puts on some JT for your photoshoot.
