My advice for couples planning now is to remember that it is just a day. The more you can put that it perspective, the more laid back you will be and the more you’ll be able to enjoy yourself. The purpose of the day is to get married and celebrate that love. It’s not about perfection or impressing people.  I got A LOT of help from my friends, so ask for help, make it fun, be gracious.

I had a lot of favorite moments throughout the day, I felt humbled by the kindness and love I felt from all of my guests. The speeches were amazing, so heartfelt and thoughtful. A few friends sang at the wedding and reception and their songs meant so much to us. The culmination of all the love and excitement was the sparkler send off. All the light, cheering and smiles at the end really made my night.

What made the wedding “me” was that it was genuine. I picked all of my favorite things, foods and people and got them in one place. I stayed within budget and used the resources I had to the best of my ability. In the end it was laid back, sentimental and good time, which is just what I wanted.

My husband, Jason Hutchins made all of the benches for our wedding. I want the ceremony to feel like we were in a church, but outside. All the benches were a combination of steel and Port Orford cedar. The arbor that we were married under was made my uncle, and it was a wedding gift. Jason made chalkboards and my friend Sienna did the designs and words on them. My friend and bridesmaid, Ashley Nunes, designed and letter pressed by wedding invitations, drink labels and coasters. She is brilliant and fabulous, I was in love with what she did. Paper cranes were the party favors and decorated the arbor. We had a paper crane making party but they were mostly a labor of love by my bridesmaid Libby. I bought flowers from a local grower (Joan Thorndike) that sells bouquets at the Ashland Farmers Market and ridiculously helpful friends helped arrange bouquets and make boutonnieres.

Isn’t this wedding a DIY and rustic lover’s dream? And what stunning images, especially that solo portrait of the bride. Congrats to Alison and Jason!

  •  7 years and three babies ago we celebrated our one month wedding anniversary in Florence on our honeymoon. I miss having traveling adventures with you. We're on a different kind of adventure now (one with even better views but an even harder climb to the top) but someday we'll get to do this again. Side note: I also miss being this size, so I'll put that on the "hopefully someday" list too #goals #beforebabies #grainybutgood  Surprised this fella with a solo ice cream date after school today and it was good. The company and the ice cream.

Slowly walking around in air conditioned Trader Joe's and buying all of the mini pumpkins  it worked for a little while.
