    After spending the long weekend with my sweetheart in Central Coast wine country, I’m in the mood for a vineyard wedding. And today’s New York vineyard wedding fits the bill perfectly. It has just the right amount of DIY, a fun atmosphere, lovely florals, and super pretty bridal attire. Oh, and a field of sunflowers.

    Advice for couples planning now? The best advice I can offer is to keep in mind that everything will work out in the end and that compromises are essential. Planning a wedding is a lot of fun, but can be stressful at times. Whenever we became overwhelmed with planning we would always stop, take a break for a few days and just make sure that we were still planning the wedding we both wanted.

    One of our favorite moments of the day was walking into the cocktail hour and getting a chance to see and talk with all of our family and friends. When we walked in, we were so elated and buzzing with excitement after just getting married! It was an incredibly happy moment to finally hug and greet your nearest and dearest.

    How did you make your wedding YOU?

    We love parties and hosting, so we tried to think of everything that would create not just a beautiful wedding, but also a celebration that the guests would really enjoy and have a great time! We were so thankful for our friends and families helping us celebrate our wedding day. We wanted to make sure they had the best time possible time eating, drinking and dancing the night away. 

    I think a wedding with cornhole and an ice cream cart sounds like the most fun wedding ever, don’t you? Congrats to Justine & Patrick on a party well done! And be sure to check out the list of vendors and artists below – so much pretty to give credit for.

    DIY by the bride:

    • Signature drinks – The Greyhound (Patrick and I met at Loyola College in MD and their mascot is the Greyhound)
    • Signature drink sign for the bar – we found a wooden cheeseboard and painted the signature drink on it with a drawing of a greyhound too
    • Flag drink stirrers – I cut wooden dowels and used glitter and paper washi tape for the flags
    • Place cards – I found blank place cards and my sister wrote out the names and table numbers
    • Pie bunting banners – I used burlap, baker’s twine and jute twine and wrote out each letter of the type of pie and tied them to wooden dowels
    • Ice cream sign – found a chalkboard sign and wrote out the flavors we offered
    • Tissue paper garland – used various shades of pinks and metallic – it hung over the dessert area
    • Ice cream bar – found glass clamp jars and tied ribbons around them for the various toppings; wooden spoons and stamped them with our initials and a dessert stamp; tied baker’s twine around each ice cream cup
    • The cornhole boards – we bought them plain and we painted the border and “D” (Delaney) on it ourselves
    • Moss initials that we hung on our chairs – used cardboard letters and used fake moss to cover them up
    • Favor bags for the donuts – bought small white paper bags and stamped ‘midnight dessert’ on each
    • Hotel guest welcome bags (rubber stamp created by Lion in the Sun) – used the mini cooper logo they created for our save the date and thank you cards and stamped them onto each canvas bag

      I was so lucky to attend this wedding and it was absolute perfection. The couple and their families were all so happy and everyone had a great time! Cornhole with Jenny was also a blast:) Love Pellegrini and the J&P

    •  Apparently you wanted to sleep in your own room as well, because last night your brothers bunked up and you got the nursery all to yourself and slept like a champ. 7:30-3:30, quick feeding, then up at 6:30. Which means I got my first real night's sleep in 7 months. Encore encore!!!  #quincyrhys quincysmilestones  I can hardly believe Quincy was ever this tiny. And now he's 7 months tomorrow. Since we are out of the infant baby gear/clothing phase, I'm selling it all at a deep discount now at @ohlovelydaysale (including this playmat!) and more this weekend if you are local. See the flyer a few posts back and head to my sale feed. Tag your expecting friends or the mom's of new babes that are in So Cal! #OLDsamplesale
       7 months old today, but momma won't be taking your 7 month photo today (probably not tomorrow either) because I'm so tired from your sleeping more like a 7 week old than a 7 month old. Did you not get the 3rd baby memo? If you don't give me more sleep soon I'm going to pull a Lindsay Lohan and check myself into a nice facility due to my "exhaustion" (except in my case it really will be exhaustion). Then who will you wake up all night, huh? So can you try and just wake me up once a night? Instead of 3? Deal? DEAL!!!? #seriouslysotired #quincyrhys  Mama said there'd be days like this... Just not 200 of them in a row  good thing the company's cute. Also, currently loving this playmat from @lollalandusa - it's big and soft and cleans easily. And now we can practice sitting without worrying about head bumps when he falls over  #quincyrhys #OLDfavefinds
