Steppin’ Out Saturday: Moore Wedding

Don’t worry, I didn’t forget about Steppin’ Out Saturday, I just decided the photos I had from Saturday weren’t link worthy. I meant to get a really great photo of my ensemble that I wore to Steve and Jamie’s wedding, but it just didn’t happen. It’s hard to get out of the house with a baby, y’all!

The wedding was beautiful, as was expected, it was so fun to see another couple move into marital bliss with the rest of us. Seriously, being married is one of the most fun things about my life. I love it. I know long after Isla (and whatever kiddos we are blessed with) leave us BJ will still be there with me all old and wrinkly.

Anyway, I’m not going to blab too much about this wedding but I’ll share a few photos from the evening. I didn’t manage to capture half of the details, but I did get a few good photos. (sorry for the massive photo post!)

All dressed up and ready to go.

Some of my girlfriends outside the ceremony. This is the best picture I got of my dress, which Steve made for me.

My view from my seat at the ceremony. The ceremony and reception was out at a private residence near Lynden.

It was a perfect fall day but it was chilly out there, luckily they had hand warmers, pashminas and hot cider to keep everyone warm.

The adorable flower girls, times 7. Aren’t those dresses adorable? There are 12 layers of tulle in the skirts.

Jamie’s grand entrance. Steve made her dress after the first dress she ordered came in 5 inches too short. No joke. She looks amazing, though, right?

And the back view.

Our little family photo.

The tables had loaves of bread on them personalized with the couple’s monagram or their wedding date. Don’t worry, I tried it, it was real bread, but clearly for decoration. 🙂 

The desserts and lounge area.

This was the view from my seat. The flowers were very neutral, lots of candles, baby’s breath in mass quantities, vintage silver trays, layered tulle tablecloths, ghost chairs (I die for ghost chairs), tons of macarons (a dozen per guest as a favor), the details were endless and perfectly Jamie and Steve’s style.

For the grand finale everyone came outside the barn and let off these lanterns as a goodbye. I don’t know if you guys have seen the movie Tangled, but it was exactly like the movie. It was a very magical goodbye.

I can’t wait to see the “real” photos which were captured by Michele M. Waite (who else?!), I know they’ll capture the feel of the day much better than mine ever could. I’ll be sure to post a link to her feature as soon as I see it.

nursery reveal

I am finally ready to reveal the nursery…I hope this isn’t anti-climactic! I would say it’s pretty much complete, although I’m still trying to decide if I should add a pelmet box over the window and I’m sure a few other small accessories will make their way into the room.

Some of you will remember the inspiration board I posted a few months ago, if you need a refresher here you go. I wanted a mix of vintage and modern, to make sure everything was fun and would work with the little one as she grows up. We also tried to do things on a budget and make the most of Craigslist and DIY projects.

View from the doorway. The vintage dresser was a Craigslist find that I painted to match the stripes in the bedding and the gold in the wallpaper. Don't worry, the mirror over the changing pad is securely screwed to the wall, it's not moving anywhere!

Here's the Orla Kiely wallpaper. This room is pretty small. It's about 7' wide by 10' long. I'm hunkered down in the closet for this picture. This light fixture was a Goodwill find from my friend Hannah- she got it for $6!

The closet. We kept the old wallpaper inside, check out all of the tiny clothes! The pink velvet chair (one of my favorite things in the room) was a $20 Craigslist find.

The closet, all covered up. The shelves above the chair are missing a few items for right now. I'm planning on sticking more books on the shelves and filling the frames with maternity and newborn photos. I also have a sparkly initial for the second shelf, but it can't be revealed quite yet!

The crib wall. The mobile disappears into the wallpaper a little more than I anticipated.

Close up of the mobile. The felt birds were Christmas ornaments I got on clearance. I covered an embroidery hoop in yarn and added some trim to complete the mobile.

We mounted the chalkboard low for little hands to draw on. I'm sure some toy baskets will find a home under the chalkboard too.

My mom and I made the bedding on one of her visits using an Amy Butler pattern (sans pockets). The fabric was from an Ikea curtain- the match to the one hanging over closet.

We have everything washed and ready, now all we need is a baby!

I’m feeling every bit of 38 weeks pregnant so hopefully she doesn’t make us wait too long after her due date. We can’t wait to introduce everyone to our little bundle!

MORE from Style Me Pretty!

I can’t believe they’ve featured two of our weddings from last summer! Erin and Richard’s Tim Burton/circus inspired wedding was by far one of my favorites to see come together. Erin had loads of inspiration and Steve executed her vision and details to the utmost.

I had the pleasure of doing day of coordination for this event and I couldn’t have been more honored to be a part of Erin and Richard’s special day. Here is the link for the full story.

Erin designed all of the stationery and many of the details (the cake topper!), you won’t believe it when you see the photos! Here is the link to Erin’s design business, Hobson House Design, just in case you were in the market for some beautiful ephemera.
