    Rustic + Elegant Malibu Wedding

    Rustic and Elegant Malibu Wedding at Saddlerock Ranch | Heidi Ryder on Oh Lovely Day

    So I have a bit of a crush on this bride, not only because she is completely gorgeous, but her style is just my favorite. Her stunning BHLDN gown, the wreath details and rustic touches, and the fact that in every photo she is barefoot and beaming with joy — what’s better than that? Nothing, but the rest of this Saddlerock Ranch wedding from Heidi Ryder comes close. Read More »


    Pastel Bohemian Spring Wedding Inspiration

    Pastel Bohemian Spring Wedding Inspiration from Reverie Supply & Beijois Events | Oh Lovely Day

    I’m walking around in a dreamy pastel fog because I can’t stop looking at the stunning images from today’s featured shoot from Beijos Events & Reverie Supply. It is a spring bohemian dream and I just want to live in it forever. It doesn’t hurt that the couple is very easy on the eyes (and are soon to be married in real life!) If you’re planning a wedding in So Cal, take note of these talented vendors — a couple are even members of the Lovely Vendor Guide (and I wish they all were!) Every detail is styled to perfection, the florals are just beyond, and the paper goods are gorgeous. And I’m dying over the cake, which matches those marbled floral containers perfectly. I could go on and on, but why don’t I just show you the fabulousness instead? Read More »


    New York Vineyard Wedding

    New York Vineyard Wedding | Elizabeth Millay Photography

    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.

    Classic Mint + Peach Wedding

    Classic Mint and Peach Wedding | photo by Leslie Hollingsworth | Oh Lovely Day

    From the moment I laid eyes on these mint green bridesmaid dresses and lovely lush bouquets, I was head over heels in love with this wedding. It only took one photo. I don’t think bridesmaid dresses get any prettier, and the florals in this wedding are beyond stunning.

    Elegant Destination Wedding in Puerto Rico: Jennifer & John

    Elegant Destination Wedding in Pastel Puerto Rico | 1313 Photography

    There are days I still have to pinch myself when I realize that not only do I get to write this wedding blog, like as my job (or one of my jobs, at least) but I have lots of lovely readers like you who wait to read what I post each day and amazing vendors and brides who want their gorgeous weddings featured on my blog. Today’s wedding is so jaw-droppingly fabulous, so stunningly beautiful, that I couldn’t believe my luck. Because it could be on any blog or in any magazine – it’s THAT good. That I get to be the one to share it with you reminds me of how lucky I am, and that the bride shared that she’s a big fan of Oh Lovely Day and reads it several times a week from Norway (where the couple lives) is the icing on the cake for me. So get ready, because I guarantee you that you’re going to want to pin every single image (don’t forget you can use the share button in the upper left corner of each image to share it across social media as well as on Pinterest!).   I apologize in advance for completely distracting you from your day with this loveliness, because you’re about to get lost in it for a while…  Read More »

    • The Land of Nod, design for kids and people that used to be kids
    •  Seriously cannot believe I'm saying this but, YOU ARE NINE MONTHS OLD! Your first 9 months of life sure did go by faster than your 9 months in my belly, and I didn't even know you were in there for the first 9 weeks! (Yep, I was totally that pregnant lady the third time around  but that's a story for another time...) You are feeding yourself, have still never had a bottle , are pulling up to standing, sprint crawling, finally cut your first tooth and are working on your second. You have regressed in sleep and the last week have been waking up 1-2 times a night but I know it's those teeth. You are not a good teether. You're babbling like crazy, mostly in this hilarious new demon voice, you often mimic sounds, and are always saying dadadada. How about a little mama, huh? I'm the one who has barely slept for 9 months through colic and reflux and nursing and night wakings and who carries you around on my person 90% of the time. I'm not bitter though. The smiles you save for me alone more than make up for it. #quincysmonthbymonth  Countdown to Halloween is on! Reminiscing about that time Charlie was @macklemore for Halloween, 2013. Kid was two weeks shy of three and played the part to a tee. What is your favorite costume you or your kids ever did? #isthatyourgrandmascoat #poppintags #charlieasmacklemore #babymacklemore #bornentertainer #charlesdashiell
       Continuing the Halloween theme today because I'm in a Halloween mood  Last year. My favorite movie as a kid became Charlie's favorite last year and he wanted to be Jareth so bad. I wasn't sure I could pull it off, but we did. Even down to dressing Calvin as Toby because he was the perfect age. I don't think it will ever get better than this for me. #dancemagicdance #babewiththepower #labyrinth  Motherhood is a constantly evolving state of total joy, exhausted agony, superhuman strength, and very human failures. As soon as you celebrate that superhuman successful day, it is replaced with new challenges. And just when you think you can't go one more day, you get a day so magical you want to have ten more babies. I'm in the midst of one of those exhausted phases again but I keep trying to remind myself that it is this phase that makes the magical days shine brighter. In the wise words of Miley Cyrus (I'm actually serious): it's all about the climb.  We've got this mamas. (Tag a momma who needs to get cheesy and read the words to a Miley Cyrus song ) #battlefieldmotherhood _______________________________________________ I can almost see it. That dream I'm dreaming, But there's a voice inside my head saying, "You'll never reach it." Every step I'm takin' Every move I make feels lost with no direction, My faith is shakin' But I, I gotta keep tryin' Gotta keep my head held high There's always gonna be another mountain I'm always gonna wanna make it move Always gonna be an uphill battle Sometimes I'm gonna have to lose Ain't about how fast I get there Ain't about what's waitin' on the other side It's the climb The struggles I'm facing The chances I'm taking Sometimes might knock me down, But no, I'm not breaking I may not know it, But these are the moments That I'm gonna remember most  Just gotta keep goin', And I, I gotta be strong Just keep pushing on, 'Cause... There's always gonna be another mountain I'm always gonna wanna make it move Always gonna be an uphill battle Sometimes I'm gonna have to lose Ain't about how fast I get there Ain't about what's waitin' on the other side It's the climb.
