    Industrial Glam Wedding Inspiration

    Industrial Glam Wedding Inspiration | Query Events + Whitley Danielle Photography

    I love when wedding professionals take two very different ideas, and make them work together beautifully. In today’s shoot we’ve got a very industrial setting paired with very glamorous details and it is hard not to fall in love with it. A brick wall next to sequin linens – yes, please! A simple, almost masculine venue as the setting for an ultra-glam and feminine event? Sign me up! And don’t even get me started on each individual stunning detail. There’s so much pretty, your eyes aren’t even ready for it. But check it out anyways :) Read More »

    Disney-Inspired Wedding

    Disney-inspired wedding | Sun & Sparrow Photography | Oh Lovely Day

    When I get a submission from Sun & Sparrow, I always know it is going to be a good wedding. Well, today is no different. I’ve got the cutest little Disney-inspired wedding for you, with such a fun-loving vibe and some fabulous bridesmaids dresses.  And since I’m a weekly visitor of Disneyland with my family lately (in Southern California you can get special passes to go frequently on “off” days), I’ve been really inspired by the happiest place on earth myself. And I can totally see how it could inspire a wedding! Read More »

    Gold + Black Wedding Inspiration

    Today’s guest poster is my dear friend Chrissy with a color palette that is one of my absolute favorites! Enjoy :)

    Well hello there Oh Lovely Day readers! Chrissy from The Perfect Palette here! Just stopping by to share a little color inspiration while Chandra is away! Looking for wedding day colors that are classic, elegant, and all kinds of pretty? Shades of black and gold always have me at hello. And I’m hoping you can see why?

    I think what I love most is that there’s really no shortage of pretty possibilities when it comes to bringing this lovely color palette to life! Like this beautiful lantern send off for instance. Nothing could capture this color palette better than the gorgeous glow of these lanterns as they contrast against the dark, night sky. Oh, and I can’t go without mentioning this beauty of a cake. Goodness! That almost looks too pretty to eat! Am I right?

    So tell me… what sort of colors evoke a classic elegance in your mind? And might you use a classic palette like this one for your upcoming wedding and/or party? I’d love to hear your ideas!

    Looking for more wedding color ideas? Be sure to hop on over to The Perfect PaletteI promise there’s a whole lot of color inspiration just waiting to be explored! And I’d love to help you find the perfect palette for your special day!

    {Inspiration Board} Coral + Metallics: A Wedding Inspired by Oh Lovely Day’s Look from Burnett’s Boards

    Aloha! Sara from Burnett’s Boards stopping by today.  I was bowled over and so honored when Chandra asked me to guest post here on Oh Lovely Day! I’ve been a long time fan of this blog and so when it got its facelift a couple months back I feel in love with it all over again. I love the colors on this site’s design: the coral-y orange, gold, hint of silver – it’s perfect, fresh, and modern! I wanted to create a wedding inspiration board that complimented the gorgeous look of this blog. Enjoy!

    •  Every day is an adventure with these two. #LHSadventures #theadventuresofcharlieandcalvin
       Between my #LHSadventures takeover and my current #OLDgoodiesguidegiveaway there are lots of new followers this week. So I thought I would take a hot sec to introduce myself while Charlie (my 4 year old) is in preschool and Calvin (my 5 month old) is napping. I'm Chandra, wife and momma of two sweet boys living in Los Angeles. I write a blog called Oh Lovely Day (inspiration for your wedding, home, and child), reluctantly practice law on occasion, and basically see how many things I can juggle before I drop it all on my head. I'm currently pumping, eating breakfast 3 hours after I woke up, catching up on emails, and typing this Instagram. I like to keep it real because it takes too much energy to fake it, plus I think we do ourselves and other mothers a disservice when we aren't honest about our experiences. I share ideas, DIY (#ohlovelyDIY), mom tips and tricks, products and clothes I use and love (#whatcalvinwears #momandcalvinapproved) places in LA we love (#OLDsfaveplacesinLA) attempts at funny antecdotes (because you've gotta try and have a laugh when things get hard and messy), and a little bit of my own life. Sometimes I try to start movements like #nourishwithoutshame. I'm by no means an expert mom (or wedding planner or marriage counselor or home stylist or person in general) but I've learned a few things and believe there's no point in reinventing the wheel when some guy who I can't remember because I can't remember shit already did that. So I share. Maybe it will help you. Maybe it will make you feel less alone on a day you're struggling. Maybe it will make you feel really good about yourself because you're doing it way better than me. Regardless of why you're here, I'm glad you are. Thanks for following along! So head over to @littlehipsqueaks blog (link in their profile) to see my family's favorite adventure in our neighborhood and my blog to enter my current giveaway of some of my favorite things for moms and littles (link in my profile). And because I bet you haven't heard it enough today: you're doing a great job and you look really pretty.
