    The Notebook-Inspired Wedding (has it really been 10 years since we fell in love with Ryan Gosling?)

    10 year anniversary of The Notebook + wedding inspiration | Oh Lovely Day

    Call me a sucker, a sap, or cheesy, but I freaking love The Notebook. Maybe it’s because I met my sweetheart young. Maybe it’s because I love a great love story. Maybe it’s because Ryan Gosling is so hot and Rachel McAdams is such a doll (and let’s be honest, you know you STILL wish they’d get back together in real life too…don’t lie). It’s probably a combination of all of those things, but I do – I just love this movie. And I can’t believe it’s 10 years old already.

    Since I know many of you still love it as much as I do – a good love story is timeless, after all – I thought I’d share 5 steps to having your own wedding inspired by The Notebook.

    5 Steps to have your own Notebook-inspired wedding | Oh Lovely Day

    Step 1: You need a bride in white driving gloves. It’s so Ally.

    Step 2: Ringbearers in newsboy caps, obvs.

    Step 3: Groom and groomsmen in bowties and suspenders, Noah style.

    Step 4: A birdcage veil. Because “if you’re a bird, I’m a bird…”

    Step 5: A canoe getaway. Bonus points for rain and a sea of ducks.

    *major bonus points for nabbing the actual Ryan Gosling as your groom. And kudos to you.

    While I’m sure you can tell I’m mostly kidding, I do think The Notebook can inspire a lovely wedding or engagement session, if you love the movie or maybe your first date was seeing the movie – how cute would that be!?

    Happy 10 Year Anniversary to The Notebook – thanks for all of the lovey dovey inspiration and romantic date nights. “It’s still not over…”

    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…
