In my world, antiques are a family business. I own an antique store with my brother and sister-in-law. My husband and I bought out an old antique store's inventory with his parents last summer. So in our family, when someone has a party, you know it's going to be vintage-infused. It was no differ[...]
Friends, I'm so excited to be sharing today's wedding with you! I worked with Meghan most of last year on pulling together the look for her September wedding, and once the big day came I helped her with day-of coordination. Meghan was such a joy to work with - she trusted me with all of the de[...]

While a seating chart can be hard[...]

For my wedding, there were a few traditions I absolutely knew I wasn't going to follow - one of them being using a traditional ring bearer pillow.

Guys, adding these beauties to Etsy was probably the best thing I've ever done for Oh, What Love. I've sent more of these dreamy mountain wedding invitations out the door in the last year than all of my other invitation suites combined, and I love to see how each bride and groom customizes them for their own wedding. What I love most is that they end up going out to places like upstate New [...]
