Hold on to your balloons, because today’s handmade ombré wedding is legen (wait for it….) DARY. Sparkle + gold – check. Ombré + color – check. Gorgeous handmade details – check. Sweet moments and traditions – double check! You better get your pinning finger warmed up because this one is so full of inspiration, you’re going to want to save every photo. What I really love is that while this bride had a lot of DIY and handmade decor, that doesn’t mean she didn’t hire amazing vendors and have a fantastic planner to help her pull everything together. Just because a bride likes DIY doesn’t mean she wants to DIY everything (I hate when blogs make DIY seem like an all or nothing thing. You can do whatever you want!) This wedding shows you that DIY and handmade weddings + fabulous vendors can work together perfectly. Read More
As one half of a high school sweetheart couple myself, I’m always drawn to other childhood sweethearts out there. Tanya & Andy made every detail of their wedding personal and really thought about their guests’ enjoyment during the planning. Plus, they were high school sweethearts. Ah, romance. Plus, look at that bouquet! Read More
When today’s wedding landed in my inbox, I was drawn to the bride’s unique BHLDN gown. It fits perfectly with the vintage handmade wedding and all of it’s lovely details. But what I love most is how you can feel the love and fun when you look at the photos. Isn’t that what weddings are really all about? Read More
Remember this vintage engagement in Half Moon Bay? I do, and not just because the bride’s name is also Chandra. It set high expectations for what their wedding would be like. Well now this couple is back with their lovely vintage-inspired DIY wedding and it definitely lives up to my expectations. And the images from Vinh Nguyen Photography will have you swooning.
What do you get when you combine inspiration from The Wizard of Oz with a wedding? One of the most creative shoots I’ve featured on Oh Lovely Day, that’s what! The Wizard of Oz was one of my two favorite movies as a child (I called the second one “Maria” – who can guess the correct movie title!?) and seeing it brought to life in today’s wedding shoot makes me so happy. So follow the yellow brick road to today’s Emerald City Shoot from Red Heels Events and Summer Jean Photography. Read More
