    Mountain Wedding in North Carolina

    North Carolina Mountain Wedding | Jen Yuson Photography | Oh Lovely Day

    What I love about today’s wedding is pretty much summed up by the bride in her vision of her wedding day:

    I gathered inspiration from Pinterest and various wedding blogs, but I had my own vision for my wedding day decided long before! I wanted to be in the mountains with my loved ones, and I wanted the whole day to be laid back yet elegant.

    I think that is the exact wedding Ashley and Patrick had. I also love that they each had their brothers as their wedding party – non-traditional and super personal. And the backdrop for this wedding, and the rainbow, are the icing on the uber-pretty cake.

    There were so many wonderful moments from the whole weekend with our family, but the moment that will always stay with me is walking down the aisle with my dad and seeing Patrick waiting for me.

    How did you make your wedding YOU?

    Family, pie – not cake, mountain views, and our dog – those are the things that made our wedding US.

    Isn’t this such a simple, elegant, gorgeous wedding? Congrats to Ashley & Patrick!

    Old Hollywood Wedding

    Old Hollywood Wedding | Heidi Ryder Photography

    I’m giddy over today’s Old Hollywood wedding from Heidi Ryder. Old Hollywood glamour, vintage touches, gold polka dots galore – what’s not to love? And my favorite of all is the fashion and style the bride infused into the day. She designed and made her dress and the bridesmaid dresses herself, and I am more beyond obsessed with her dress. And her gold glitter Miu Miu heels. Just too good…

    •  Sharing my thoughts and feelings on preparing for a second baby on the blog today. My posts are getting fewer and farther between as I have a harder and harder time doing almost everything. Let's hope this baby comes a little early  Also, my iPhone camera died, so my Instagraming will be slow until my new phone gets here. Thank goodness for that extra phone protection plan.
