Sunset Cliffs, San Diego, CA. : Wedding Video

On 04.02.16, our friends married on the beautiful cliffs overlooking the ocean in San Diego, CA. Sunset Cliffs has sweeping, breath-taking views of the Pacific Ocean.  As a major attraction, Sunset Cliffs is also home to amazing spots such as Osprey Point where you can host your wedding ceremony.  I highly recommend this spot for your next wedding ceremony, because on a clear and sunny day (which is most likely in San Diego) you get goosebumps just relishing in the natural beauty.

I did not plan on recording their wedding video, but I brought my GoPro camera just in case.  I’m pleased with how the wedding video turned out, and how could you not be happy after watching two lovely people marry at such a beautiful place?  Take a look to see why you should plan your next wedding in San Diego!  I can help you arrange, coordinate, decorate, and help you obtain permits for such a location.  Creating a memorable and timeless occasion is what I can help you achieve for your big day!

Custom Wine Labels : Wedding or Bridal Shower Gift

Wedding season is upon us, and if you want to give a creative bridal shower or wedding gift consider Custom Wine Labels. I came across a custom wedding wine label gift idea that represents a marriage milestone in the couple’s relationship. With the Photoshop magic by my sister, Molly Dillon, we incorporated their magical engagement photos taken at Joshua Tree by Montana Dennis. Along with a sweet milestone poem, the photos add a personal and memorable touch.

When each important milestone occurs in the couple’s marriage, they pop the cork and celebrate with a glass…or bottle of wine! From a bottle to drink on their Wedding Night, to their First Big Purchase, to Baby Makes Three, it is a nice little reminder that even though the wedding reception may be over, the love they have for each other on any old day deserves to celebrated too. Cheers to Mr. + Mrs. DiPirro-Beard, wishing you both a lifetime of firsts together as a family! wine wedding gift-Darcy Oliver Design

Mermaid Themed Baby Shower

Our Little Mermaid has recently made her debut, but I will always remember my baby shower as a magical and beautiful day shared with family and dear friends. Dusted in gold, blush, and peach this dreamy Baby Shower was a splendid way to celebrate our Little Mermaid on the way!mermaid baby shower-Darcy Oliver Design

A lot of the mermaid baby shower decor was also incorporated into Cosette’s Nursery, so thoughtful planning went into multipurpose pieces such as this Tassel Garland made by BlushBazaar on Etsy! I found the Mermaid Sign at Home Goods, but did a little DIY action and repainted it Gold with a little Gold Glitter for sparkle. I used only the best Gold Spray paint: Design Master 24 KT Gold. From the coral cake topper to the Oyster Pearl Cookies made by my sweet friend Danielle, mermaid flair was everywhere!

Every mermaid also wears her pearls, and it is not a baby shower without games, so we played the “Don’t Say Baby” Game with a strand of pearls for each guest. Who ends up with the most strands wins! Another fun game provided by my dear friend Samantha, is the “What’s in Your Purse?” Game. This was a great one to play during lunch when everyone is sitting down with their purses, and to gear it towards baby, you can add items like baby wipes, diapers, or binkies! Each item is worth a certain amount of points, and whoever has the most items in their purse, wins! The prizes were DIY Glitter Champagne Bottles and Seashell Chocolates fit for a mermaid.

Another fun and memorable Baby Shower idea is to send a little poem in the invitation that encourages your guest to bring a new or used Children’s Book instead of a card. The books were filled with sweet notes to Cosette, and she will be reminded of them each time we read to her. Thank you to everyone who joined us to celebrate our Little Mermaid!

Newborn Photo Shoot : Cosette Enjolie

We welcomed our new bundle of joy on 1.20.15, and we could not be more in love with her! Our sweet newborn baby girl is named Cosette Enjolie, and we worked with Taplin Photo on a Newborn Photo Shoot when she was around two weeks old to capture all of her newborn goodness. We also worked with Taplin Photo for our Maternity Shoot that you can view here. We had such a blast with Emily, and we were so thrilled to work with her again!

Captured in her nursery, these are the most treasured photos we own. Simplistic and beautiful, we will cherish these images, and I cannot wait to share them with Cosette when she is older. Here are a few of my favorites from that day, and I highly recommend Taplin Photo for your Newborn or Family Photo Shoot!

Nursery Design : Mermaid Themed Decor

We welcomed our Little Mermaid on 1.20.15, and during her long awaited arrival I was hard at work on her Mermaid Themed Nursery. A lot of the decor was used at the Mermaid Themed Baby Shower (photos coming soon), and the most important plan was to maximize the space. The master bedroom turned nursery was thoughtfully planned out with multipurpose pieces combined with hidden storage.

The vintage pieces used such as the long dresser house her clothes, diapers, and linens while also acting as a changing table. I set up a canvas basket that was a gift at my baby shower as her diaper changing station, and simply placed the changing pad on top of the dresser. Her vintage inspired Jenny Lind crib is smaller in scale compared the larger and bulkier cribs that you may see at most baby stores. The space under the crib is valuable space. Purchase long, plastic containers at Target or Walmart to store clothes, diapers, wipes, and linens, and you can store 3 of these containers under the crib.

Her bassinet by the bed is where she sleeps until she is ready to be transitioned into her crib, and I cannot express how nice it is to have her close by for nighttime feedings in bed. During the daytime I nurse her in our reclining swivel Glider from Babies R Us, and this 3 Tiered Cart is perfect for storing burp cloths, bibs, nursing pads, and her accessories in cute boxes that store perfectly in this cart from IKEA. Having items accessible while you are nursing is key to relaxing while bonding with your baby.

I carefully chose items that she can grow into, and I did not buy into the matchy matchy crib bedding. I simply chose items that complimented the vintage style, and purchased a soft mint throw blanket and throw pillows at Home Goods. Have fun with your baby’s nursery, and functional pieces can also be stylish!
