    Vintage Beach Wedding | Hayne Photographers & Antonia Christianson Events | Oh Lovely Day

    Today’s wedding is a combination of two things I love, vintage-style with a relaxed beach ceremony. And it is just so sweet, it is hard not to fall in love with Hunter & Sharayu’s wedding. From the long family-style tables to the bride’s Audrey Hepburn-inspired style, and all the personal DIY details in between: this wedding is just too sweet for words.

    Favorite moment of the day? Walking over the sand dune with my dad and seeing Hunter & our friends and family waiting for me to arrive.

    We wanted to have the wedding in a relaxed setting – elegant and timeless.  Since Hunter’s parents live on the beach we decided to do something intimate and relaxed by having a beach ceremony and a backyard reception.

    Advice for couples planning now? Use your friends and family as resources for special thematic pieces for your wedding.   Create as many DIY projects as possible, not only are they fun projects to do, people always love a personal touch.  Don’t settle for just any dress.  If you can’t find the dress that you envisioned, always seek a seamstress that can create what you want.  Hire your vendors carefully and then trust them with your vision, allowing them to use their artistic ability to bring your vision to life.  Use sites like Pinterest and Etsy as an inspiration.  Enjoy the planning!

      The use of those wood cut rounds in the ceremony is so clever and we love the tables. Beautiful!

      Sharayu and Hunter were a dream to work with! Their taste is impeccable and it shows in the images from Hayne Photographers. Thank you so much for including us!

      It was a sincere pleasure to work with this couple and their family. I love it even more when a client comes with their ideas and then says, “what ever you want to do we trust you and love what you create.” The flowers where chosen from local farmers, some of the others where sourced within Virginia. We tried our best to keep a lot of things a surprise. Behind the amazing images is a better story of confidence, love, a little humor, patience, and a lot of praying. Perhaps the couple will share their story to others. The wedding was originally scheduled for a Friday late afternoon/evening, however the whole wedding had to me moved two days because of weather which turned out to be one of our best weather days for a wedding in our area. All of the vendors involved in this wedding brought the “A” game on this wedding. The food, the coordinating, photography, car service, cake, and the lighting was all perfection.
      We Love this couple and the family.

      The family of the groom said the “lavender by the bay” soaps (wedding favors) filled the home with the relaxing fragrance of lavender that was appreciated. Thank you for the opportunity to make lovely soap for your special occasion.

    •  Quincy and I went to the #redCARpetsafety event today, which raises awareness for baby safety. Saw friends @uppababy @munchkin @ergobaby @babyganics & made some new ones like @thestep2company @showmeyourmumu as well. Quincy was making eyes at all the ladies, but he flirted the biggest with Caila with the good hair (which should totally be her hashtag). And all the new moms and moms-to-be were asking about this sling @mywildbird! Which made me think of a good #momtip: Taking Quincy on the go is so much easier thanks to babywearing and that @loyal_hana jumpsuit -- the hidden zippers make it so easy to nurse Quincy while wearing him in the sling. No one even knows I'm breastfeeding! Makes it so much easier to go places, especially with other little ones. I did a whole post on ohlovelyday.com about breastfeeding while babywearing if you want more tips! #OLDfavefinds #quincyrhys #babywearing #normalizebreastfeeding  If I got to take two naps a day I'd be this happy too.  And for all of you who have asked me about this playmat, I blogged all about it today -- link in profile. #OLDfavefinds #quincyrhys
       Watching these three interact with each other over breakfast makes me flash forward to seeing them doing the same thing as big boys and teenagers and it makes me smile and shed a little tear at the same time. And then I think about how much cereal and milk I'm gonna have to buy  #thefredrickboys #lifewithboys  It's been one of those days (weeks, months, years) where everything is going wrong. Been up since 4:45 since I couldn't get Quincy back to sleep after a feeding. Calvin fell asleep in the stroller on a walk at 10:30 (something he hasn't done since he was like 5 months old!) so his normal nap (my break to eat/shower/work/rest or only have one child to care for for a couple hours) is gone for the day. Quincy pooped all over himself so bad that we were both literally covered in . And he's already woken up from his afternoon nap after only 45 very short minutes. And I'm supposed to have a date with my husband tonight except I'm exhausted and covered in  and have no time to do anything about either one. Oh, and I fell down the stairs (sore but not hurt). Motherhood: somedays you win, somedays you lose. But on all the days you are, to some extent in this season of motherhood, covered in shit.  Here's hoping the weekend is less shitty, in all the ways. #beerme #battlefieldmotherhood
