    Autumn Bounty Orchard Inspiration | Oh Lovely Day | Gather Events, Chris & Kristen Photography, The Vine's Leaf, Claire Pettibone

    Earlier this week I featured a stunning Autumn Harvest Wedding Inspiration Shoot, and today I wanted to feature more of the gorgeous bridal look. Because it was that good. The makeup, the hair, the red lips, the floral choices, the Claire Pettibone gown, the fab gold head piece, and of course the ring…it was spot on for a fall bride, or just fall beauty inspiration.

    Fall is my absolute favorite time of year: sweater weather, all things pumpkin, changing leaves, fall family fun – it’s the best. Even though fall weather hasn’t reached Los Angeles yet (still coming off what I hope is our last heat wave of the year), I’m getting in the spirit thanks in part to this stunning Autumn Bounty inspiration I’m sharing today.

    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 »

    •  Happy 4 months my chubby bunny! It's crazy to think that 8 years ago today your pops asked me to marry him and now here you are already 4 months old. You are happy and smiling 90% of the time and still screamy 10% of the time. Much better, but your unpredictable screaminess still pops up at the times when I'm trying to get out of the house or eat, usually both at once. I can take a hint. You are 17 lbs and almost 26 inches - putting you in the 90th % for height and 80th for weight. Oh, and your head is in the 94th % - which I'm fine with since it was a nice slightly below average size when you were born. You are hilariously huge  Your daddy says if you keep growing like this people are going to start calling you Hodor You have rolled from belly to back a few times (a small miracle given your size and how little floor time you've been able to have due to your reflux), scoot yourself with your feet when laying on your back, have reached for and grabbed a toy, and are a chatterbox. You like music, like being held in sitting and standing positions, and really wanna eat your hands. You are a champion napper -- usually taking a 2-3 hr one in the morning and a good afternoon one as well. I can even put you down without soothing you to sleep first and you fall asleep on your own - something that your brothers didn't do until at least 6 months old. You're sleeping from around 7:30 pm - 7 am, waking around 3:30 for a snack (you're totally not hungry either, you just miss me). You're just the cutest with your fat rolls and cheek dimps and duck fluff hair and big gummy smiles and you have everyone of us completely smitten.  #quincysmonthbymonth  We didn't remember to take his 4 month photos today (we'll just pretend the 26th is tomorrow ) but we did manage a photo for #rednoseday. Don't forget to donate! @rednosedayusa ❣#doitforthekids
       Temporary post: I'm looking for the cutest non tacky apparel for moms and littles for 4th of July themed blog post. If you have something super cute and available online, shoot me an email to chandra@ohlovelyday.com with subject line "July 4th apparel" and a photo (flat lay preferable but on model ok) at least 600 pixels wide, price, and link to item. I'll choose a variety of my favorite 15 and will email you if yours was chosen. And tag a shop if you have seen something cute that I should check out. TIA (these cute swim shorts are by @trendybubs btw )  Talking about embracing our postpartum bodies on the blog today with photos from my shoot with @sollybabywrap when I was 10 days postpartum. Let's start a movement of embracing our real postpartum mom bods - haven't we earned it after pregnancy, labor, delivery, sleep deprivation, nursing, and everything else we put our bodies through? Head to the blog to read my thoughts on the subject - link in profile or ohlovelyday.com. And share your own postpartum photos proudly with #embraceyourmombod #battlefieldmotherhood  @maxwanger #quincyrhys #sollybaby
