Jesse and Whitney, husband-and-wife team of the beautifully unique, Our Labor of Love photography gang, are no strangers to the blog. As excited as we get when we have the opportunity to share a wedding they’ve photographed, we’re squealing in our pants excited to share these bits from their recent baby shower welcoming August Jude Chamberlin, the newest addition to the fam. We adore the minimal decor, that can easily be translated to any other event in your life, serene color palette, ceramics, and touch of feathers. Take a peek and make sure to leave them some congratulatory love!

Our Labor of Love modern baby-shower invitations.

For the record, these itty bitty moccasins are melting our heart.

  1. Congrats!!!!! This is just beautiful just like everything you guys do!!!!!

  2. Love the feather hanging detail. Very whimsical.

  3. This is gorgeous! Congrats to Jesse and Whitney! I love the name August Jude, too!

  4. I enjoyed the baby shower blog with the Indian Theme. The photo of the dog is great!

  5. Eeek! Those headdresses are a little racist!

    (This article is a good explanation of why: http://indiancountrytodaymedianetwork.com/ict_sbc/time-to-stop-playing-indian)

  6. Love the table scape – where can I get wooden boxes like these for centrepieces?

  7. Hah. Very cute, you guys : D

  8. I’m with Maker. I’m sure no one meant to be racist or insensitive with this, but Native American culture is just that…a culture (actually, many cultures) not a party theme. Some aspects of the culture, like headdresses, are deeply sacred and the use of those things as party decorations diminishes them.

  9. I have to agree with Maker and Anna… the headdresses definitely make me squirm. I know that this was not intentional, but the appropriation of Native American attire/aesthetics trivializes a real culture that is rich and sacred. The “Indian” Halloween costumes and sports team mascots are all guilty of this.

  10. I’m with Maker, Anna, and Ana. There’s a good explanation of why they’re not just a neutral fashion choice on Native Appropriations.

    Pseudo-Indian style is a pretty big thing right now and it’s no surprise that it would show up. Seeing it, though, really alienates me as a reader.

  11. Not digging the “Indian theme” as a previous comment called it. Native Americans are people, not mascots.

  12. I really appreciate all of this so wonderful and creative. Thank you for this wonderful pictures.

  13. Ok, so the tiny moccasins are the cutest things ever!

    The feather headdress making is inspired. Nice addition to have a fun little craft that would really be remembered and also add to the theme. Kudos!

    Congrats to the new mommy and daddy!
