    Sweet & Simple Garden Party Wedding

    Sweet and Simple Garden Party Wedding | Amanda Watson Photography

    Big weddings, elaborate backdrops, crazy details – those are all great. But sometimes I just really love a sweet and simple wedding, and today’s garden party wedding is a breath of fresh air. From the bride’s fab retro style, to the simple DIY touches, it gets everything right. And best of all, it was totally and completely representative of the couple getting married.  Read More »

    Santa Cruz Wedding

    Santa Cruz Wedding | Sun and Life Photography

    It’s no secret that I love living in (and featuring the weddings of) California. But one spot I’ve never visited and have always wanted to is Santa Cruz. It just seems like such a charming, idyllic beach town. Well, today’s wedding is doing nothing to quiet my wanderlust. A first look on train tracks, a beach ceremony, and a reception in a forest, all captured beautifully by Sun and Life Photography – what’s not to love?  Read More »

    Vintage Beach Wedding

    Vintage Beach Wedding | Hayne Photographers & Antonia Christianson Events | Oh Lovely Day

    Today’s wedding is a combination of two things I love, vintage-style with a relaxed beach ceremony. And it is just so sweet, it is hard not to fall in love with Hunter & Sharayu’s wedding. From the long family-style tables to the bride’s Audrey Hepburn-inspired style, and all the personal DIY details in between: this wedding is just too sweet for words. Read More »

    New Year’s Eve Wedding Inspiration

    New Year's Eve Wedding Inspiration | Hetler Photography & The Day's Design Events | Oh Lovely Day

    If ever there was a holiday I’d plan my wedding around, it is New Year’s Eve. The glitz and glam, the romance, the sparkle potential! I would throw one fabulous New Year’s Eve wedding, if I do say so myself. Today’s New Year’s Eve shoot illustrates my point perfectly, and is such lovely inspiration for a NYE wedding or dinner party.  And I love the “hats off to the new year” theme, from The Day’s Design and Hetler Photography.  Read More »

    Handmade Ombré Wedding

    Handmade Ombré Wedding | Amy Carroll Photography & Heyday Event Lab on Oh Lovely Day

    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 »

    •  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
