    The photoshoot took place on the most beautiful summer day at the Keeler Tavern in Ridgefield, Connecticut. Having worked with Amy Champagne Events and Ashley Therese Photography for their real wedding in 2012, Nicole & Oli St. Onge signed on to be models for this exciting project. The tablescape consisted of a barn wood reclaimed wood table, with a table runner of Connecticut local Caladium base with the clippings of cherry blossoms on top and gold mercury glass votives nestled between the branches. Centerpieces were potted azalea plants that were planted after the photoshoot. On top of the gold stamped linen napkins sat organic handmade soaps that served as favors. We wanted to try something completely different with the escort cards. We learned that scallions or green onions will regrow as long as they are placed in water, which we thought was a cool concept so we made them into escort cards in bud vases with instructions attached on how to care for them on the menu card. Paper goods were made of seed paper, and the cake was made of local and organic ingredients.

    Don’t you love that everything used in this shoot was upcycled, reclaimed, sustainable, organic, and locally grown and made? You really can have a lovely wedding while being socially conscious, eco-friendly, and leaving a low carbon footprint. Job well done to all of the amazing vendors involved, which you can find below! So, who is going to use this to inspire a spring event of their own?

    •  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
       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  Got one little corner of the boys' soon-to-be-shared bedroom done today. Once the bunkbeds arrive I may totally rearrange things but for now I'm loving this @thelandofnod table for reading, doing puzzles, and there is a hidden bin underneath where I have a Lego topper hidden so we can make it a Lego table too. And store those puzzles with all of the little pieces that drive me insane  Can't wait to finish and share more of this room (and move Cal in so I can move Quincy into the nursery and maybe get a little more sleep!) You can see the design process and inspiration that I did with the design services team from The Land of Nod on the blog as well (link in profile). #projectsharedboysbedroom #calvins3rdyear
