    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 »

    •  My lil sidekick went with me to the @uppababy #tuneupgearup event in LA today. Did you know that as an UPPAbaby customer you can attend these events to have your stroller checked out and cleaned for FREE!? Mine got a good cleaning and new rear wheels and looks brand new (shared more on snapchat!) They also do product demos in case you're expecting baby #2 or 3 and want to see how the rumbleseat or piggyback board work, or maybe you want to test out the new G-Link (their double umbrella stroller) in person. Plus freebies, raffles, and accessories with purchase. It is such a great event. To see if there is one near you, go to http://tuneup.uppababy.com/schedule/ #quincyrhys  King Quincy in his new throne  / Did a Friday #OLDfavefinds feeding series on Snapchat today, including sharing about this high chair from @4moms_hq and some things from @munchkininc @earthsbest. #quincyrhys #mealtimewithQuincy
       Sometimes when Calvin is really bugging the crap out of Charlie, I explain to him how I understand how it is sometimes hard to have a baby brother and how they can sometimes be annoying. Because I also had a baby brother who used to bug the crap out of me  But look how cute he was! And now he's not annoying at all, so Charlie has that to look forward to.  Happy birthday baby brother.  Last weekend Charlie introduced Calvin to one of his absolute favorite places, @californiasciencecenter. Already looking forward to this weekend's adventures! If you are looking for a place to take your kids this weekend in the area, I posted our favorite places today on the blog - link in profile! Where are your favorite family-friendly spots in LA? #theadventuresofcharlieandcalvin #oldsfaveplacesinLA
