    Elegant Santa Barbara Wedding

     

    Elegant Santa Barbara Wedding | C&K photography

    When a photographer you love sends you a wedding you love – well, that’s pretty much the best day for a wedding blogger. And this elegant Santa Barbara wedding from Chris & Kristen Photography definitely made my day. The stunning couple wanted a laid-back yet elegant wedding with Italian touches thrown in to honor the groom’s side of the family. And it reinforces how much I love California weddings.  Read More »

    Preppy Southern Wedding

    Preppy Southern Wedding | Dana Laymon Photography

    Sorry for the lack of posts this week – I’ve been bedridden with a terrible virus that completely wiped me out (stomach virus on top of being pregnant is brutal!) So to make up for it, I’ve got a fabulous real wedding for you today. I love all of the hints of the South in this wedding, but the pineapples most of all – for those of you that don’t know, the pineapple is a traditional expression of “welcome” throughout the South. Pretty perfect for a wedding, don’t you think?  Read More »

    Handmade Ombré Wedding

    Handmade Ombré Wedding | Amy Carroll Photography & Heyday Event Lab on Oh Lovely Day

    Hold on to your balloons, because today’s handmade ombré wedding is legen (wait for it….) DARY. Sparkle + gold – check. Ombré + color – check. Gorgeous handmade details – check. Sweet moments and traditions – double check! You better get your pinning finger warmed up because this one is so full of inspiration, you’re going to want to save every photo. What I really love is that while this bride had a lot of DIY and handmade decor, that doesn’t mean she didn’t hire amazing vendors and have a fantastic planner to help her pull everything together. Just because a bride likes DIY doesn’t mean she wants to DIY everything (I hate when blogs make DIY seem like an all or nothing thing. You can do whatever you want!) This wedding shows you that DIY and handmade weddings + fabulous vendors can work together perfectly. Read More »

    Wizard of Oz Wedding | Red Heels Events and Summer Jean Photography on ohlovelyday.comWhat do you get when you combine inspiration from The Wizard of Oz with a wedding? One of the most creative shoots I’ve featured on Oh Lovely Day, that’s what!

So follow the yellow brick road to today’s Emerald City Shoot from Red Heels Events and Summer Jean Photography.  Read More »

    •  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
