• Mountain Wedding in North Carolina

    North Carolina Mountain Wedding | Jen Yuson Photography | Oh Lovely Day

    What I love about today’s wedding is pretty much summed up by the bride in her vision of her wedding day:

    I gathered inspiration from Pinterest and various wedding blogs, but I had my own vision for my wedding day decided long before! I wanted to be in the mountains with my loved ones, and I wanted the whole day to be laid back yet elegant.

    I think that is the exact wedding Ashley and Patrick had. I also love that they each had their brothers as their wedding party – non-traditional and super personal. And the backdrop for this wedding, and the rainbow, are the icing on the uber-pretty cake.

    There were so many wonderful moments from the whole weekend with our family, but the moment that will always stay with me is walking down the aisle with my dad and seeing Patrick waiting for me.

    Snack Packing Tips + Family Friday Round-Up

    snack packing tips

    Charlie and I participated in a fun camping-related post for Momtastic that is live today, and I also shared some tips for how to pack the perfect snacks when sending your little to day camp. It was fun, and you can read the difference between my answers and his answers to the same camping-related questions :) We also got to try some of the new Nestlé Crunch Girl Scout Candy Bars, and I must say they are am yummy as the famous Girl Scout Cookies they are inspired by. There is even one based on my favorite Thin Mints®. Exciting, right? Go check it out here.

    Big Sur Elopement

    Big Sur Elopement | Evynn LeValley Photography | Oh Lovely Day

    I’ve been on an elopement kick lately, and after today’s dreamy Big Sur elopement I’m sure you can see why. There’s something so utterly romantic about you and your love, exchanging vows and getting married, and having almost no one else around. You can do it completely your way – start your marriage and partnership however you want. It isn’t for everyone, but it definitely gives you something to think about. I’d love to renew my vows this way someday… Read More »

    •  As long as you aren't re-registering for stuff you got with your first baby, I totally think you can register for second (or subsequent) babies and I'm sharing my own @babylistregistry list (if you haven't heard of them, check it out - you can register for anything from anywhere!) and top picks, with items from @ergobaby @babybrezza @summerinfant @uppababy & more over on Babyli.st's blog: http://blog.babyli.st/second-baby-registry-ideas/
       19 years ago today, I went on my very first date with this stud. Subway sandwiches, a picnic at the park, a walk in the woods, and ice cream cones. I wore cut off jean shorts and rocked a 90's spiral perm and he wore socks with sandals. Just over 14 years (and quite a few "breaks") later, we got married. Now we're about to celebrate our 5 year anniversary and the birth of our second son. Life is crazy cool. Happy first date anniversary to my just as hot, social media-less, baby daddy and husband. Even though my hormones indicate otherwise lately, I love you so much and am so lucky to do this thing called life with you. ❤️
