    Dreamy Beach Vow Renewal

    Dreamy Beach Vow Renewal in Saipan | Mylyn Wood Photography on Oh Lovely Day

    Today’s dreamy beach vow renewal is full of beach wedding inspiration and might have you longing for a simple destination affair. This couple really wanted to celebrate their anniversary with a vow renewal on the island of Saipan, where they have lived for over a year, because they felt like they wanted to include the island and their new “family” there in their marriage. I love that idea, and the stunning images from Mylyn Wood Photography

    I love Lauren’s beach chic bridal style – her hair is perfection and the florals could not be a better match.

    Great idea for a simple beach wedding: lay down wooden pallets and cover with colorful blankets and linens for guests to sit on. Bonus points for guests who dress this colorfully festive!Dreamy Beach Vow Renewal in Saipan | Mylyn Wood Photography on Oh Lovely Day Dreamy Beach Vow Renewal in Saipan | Mylyn Wood Photography on Oh Lovely Day Dreamy Beach Vow Renewal in Saipan | Mylyn Wood Photography on Oh Lovely Day Dreamy Beach Vow Renewal in Saipan | Mylyn Wood Photography on Oh Lovely Day Dreamy Beach Vow Renewal in Saipan | Mylyn Wood Photography on Oh Lovely Day Dreamy Beach Vow Renewal in Saipan | Mylyn Wood Photography on Oh Lovely Day Dreamy Beach Vow Renewal in Saipan | Mylyn Wood Photography on Oh Lovely Day Dreamy Beach Vow Renewal in Saipan | Mylyn Wood Photography on Oh Lovely Day

    Here’s more from the couple:

    This little island has special significance to us. We haven’t lived here long (only a year) but our lives have changed so much since coming here. We’ve found some of the greatest people to share our lives with and as a couple we have grown more than we ever had before. With our anniversary nearing we entertained the idea of renewing our vows. At first it was just an idea we threw around but the more we thought about it the more important it became to us. We really wanted the island itself to be well represented since it was here that our marriage has been strengthened and here that we met our new “family.” The flametrees have very great meaning on the island and they represent deep love and passion. Since they were already in season we decided it would be the perfect way to incorporate this wonderful new home of ours. It was important to us that only those who touched our lives significantly would be there so it was very casual and very small. We lined our favorite beach with family quilts and blankets, made an aisle runner from coral pieces and adorned the natural cave with the firey red blooms from the flametrees. It was here that we spoke boldly, honestly and humbly about our lives, our love and our gratitude for each other. A special opening was given by my best friend and love song was played to us on the ukulele. To us, this became more significant than our original wedding and it meant everything to us that we were able to do it in such an authentic way in front of those dearest to us. Afterwards we shared toasts with champagne, and shared stories and s’mores as we watched the most beautiful pink sunset fall upon the water. We ate the most delicious cake from our favorite local bakery that was adorned with local seaglass from our favorite beaches.

    Many congrats and happy wishes to Lauren & Matt!

    Spring Southern Wedding Inspiration

    Spring Southern Wedding Inspiration | Carrie Joy Photography | Oh Lovely Day

    Today’s wedding inspiration shoot was inspired by the photographer’s heritage: her love of her grandparents and the art of true Southern entertaining. With a venue that feels like home in the South with it’s big wrap-around porch, the incorporation of heirloom china and gold flatware, and colorful florals that feel like they were freshly cut from the garden, I’m longing for a visit to the South myself. So pour yourself a glass of sweet tea and stay a while. Read More »

    Romantic & Relaxed Malibu Wedding

    Relaxed Malibu Wedding | Hazelnut Photography, You and Me Events, Kate Baker Florals, Kacee Geoffroy, Calimigos Ranch, & Vanilla Bake Shop | Oh Lovely Day

    It’s really fun when I get to feature weddings from talented vendors I love, and today is one of those days. And not only that, but Jordana of Hazelnut Photography is a friend, Vanilla Bake Shop did the sweets for my own wedding (and is a friend and Lovely Vendor), and I’ve been a wedding guest at the Calamigos Ranch at one of the most fun weddings I’ve ever attended. Add to all of that a gorgeous wedding with a relaxed Cali vibe, and some of the prettiest florals I ever did see, and you’ve got today’s real wedding feature. I’m a happy gal.

    •  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
       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  And just like that, Calvin is more little boy than baby  #calvins3rdyear #boyhood
