• Classic New England Wedding: Becky & Paul

    Classic New England Wedding | Katie Slater Photography

    I love a good classic wedding. One that is timeless, that you can look back on for years to come and it would still be beautiful. Today’s wedding is one of those – with a pretty grey and pink color palette, a stunning cathedral venue (gosh, it makes for some pretty pictures!), and elegant details. And how fabulous are those shoes!? Check out these lovely images from Katie Slater, along with some words from the bride.

    I’m a graphic designer, so I took on the challenge of designing our invitations, all of our paper products (programs, table cards, table numbers, etc), and website. Paul is a software engineer, so he created the RSVP capability on the website. That way, we didn’t need people to send in response cards. They could RSVP right through our website!

    Favorite moment of the day? My favorite moment was walking down the aisle. Arm in arm with my dad, seeing Paul waiting for me there at the altar, all the stress melted away and was replaced with pure happiness.

    Advice for couples planning now? Don’t forget what the day is truly about. It’s easy to get wrapped up in linen colors and everyone else’s opinions, but at the end of the day it’s about the love between you and your soulmate. It will go by so fast, and all those little details you stressed about won’t even matter!

    Paul and I were inspired by the historical backdrop of Salem. We wanted things to look vintage and classic – almost like an old faded photograph.

    What made your wedding YOU?

    I’d love to say that it was all the decor, dress, all the planning that went into it, but in truth it was the presence of all the people who care about us. Strip away all the decoration and pretty things, and I still would have felt nothing but love that day. My friends,family, and of course my husband, made our wedding day the best day of my life to date.

    Such a lovely wedding isn’t it? I especially love the florals and all of paper goods, which the bride designed herself. Oh, and air guitar is always a plus at a wedding! Congrats to Becky & Paul.

    •  First family of five outing: picnic, friends, jazz, champagne, crazy boys. We did it! #fredrickpartyoffive #OLDsfaveplacesinla  The windows are open and a breeze is blowing in the smell of the night blooming jasmine outside. Calvin is napping. Quincy is nursing. Chili is cooking. I got decent sleep last night and had a productive morning. We have family plans with friends this evening. The wine is chilling. I got these flowers from Trader Joes for $7 and the ranunculus are the prettiest yellow. They reminded me of someone which reminded me to stop and appreciate every single thing I just listed and more. Every giggle, every smile, every breath, every cuddle. Every quiet moment. Every loud moment. Every single moment. Everything.
       Ice Cube = it's Friday! Cause, FRIDAY. duh. #byefelicia #optimist #quincyrhys  THREE MONTHS OLD (and two days)! Wow. I cannot believe it. You might be the smiley-est baby I've ever met, which is saying a lot considering how miz you were your first few weeks of life. You are doing so much better with your reflux (thank you Prevacid!) and can finally lay flat, don't scream in your infant seat, and mostly tolerate the bath. You still freak out a little when I try to take you places, but staying home for three months will do that to ya. We're slowly venturing out, taking walks, and getting a bit more social. You still love to nurse and be worn but you also love being put in your bouncer and on your playmat/gym. You are babbling like crazy, laughing, smiling at your brothers a lot (even Calvin, even when he's a little rough with his love). They both love you so much and think you are so cute. Tonight Charlie said "Quincy, how cute are you!? No, seriously, HOW CUTE ARE YOU!?" You weigh a whopping 15 pounds (your brothers were only 13.5 at 4 months!) You have so many rolls I have to make sure you aren't hiding food or growing a garden in them. And you have sweaty feet! It's so weird. Your night sleep is not bad but not amazing - you sleep from 7:30 or 8 pm till 1:30 or 2 am, eat, and then go back to sleep but lately are waking up every 1.5-2 hrs after that even though you don't seem to be hungry. You still sleep in the rock-n-play so I'm hoping to get you in your bassinet soon since your reflux is improving. Calvin was sleeping 10-12 straight hours already. But you take great naps - one 3 hour nap in the morning and usually a 2 hr nap in the afternoon. You're pretty dependable that way, and for the record both of your brothers struggled with naps for a while. I'd rather have more night sleep but I'll take what I can get. You've discovered your hands and are trying to suck your thumb/fist. When you cry, you really cry. Like full on wailing or no crying at all. And you have white duck fluff sticking up all over your head. I love how you stretch and pucker your lips when I take you out of the swaddle and how when you first wake up and focus your eyes on me you greet me with the biggest smile ever. Every single time.  #quincysmonthbymonth
