July 4th is perhaps one of the most treasured and widely celebrated holidays we as Americans share. Not only does it represent the time our country defined itself, it is the very hallmark of everything that is Americna. There is a deep passion that comes with the fourth of July, be it military praise or the ability to enjoy our freedom, we love to embrace this summer highlight. When something embodies so much meaning it inspires beyond its core, as such gorgeous red white and blue weddings take a cue, crafting serious patriotic love, wedding style. Personally I feel a palette of red white and blue can go array easily. They are three very strong colors when put together, work with the wrong tones of each and all you have is a lot of noise. Work with the right variations of these hues and you have a red white and blue wedding masterpiece. Below is a collection of some of my favorites that took Americana love, a sprinkle of Patriotic beauty and turned it into sheer magic. Blooms, brides, cocktails & treats, you'll find a bevy of patriotic wedding inspiration that will tug at your Americana heartstrings!

It's been a while since I've found myself not just with a face wide grin but literally chuckling out loud while making selections for a wedding. Don't get me wrong, each wedding I choose to share is lovely, filled with delightful treats of beauty & heart, but some weddings more then others have an undeniable focus on family & fun. Such is the case with the truly dynamic Austin Texas Camp Wedding of Cindy & Richard! Parallel to their desire to express their love as a couple, Cindy & Richard wanted to craft a weekend long adventure that celebrated their family and friends in the most deliciously whimsical of ways. Naturally the idea of a camp wedding was born, complete with custom wedding logo highlighting the weekend long activities of games, bonfires and the like, largely played out during the reception. A bold color palette of red, blue & yellow further brought to life the camp wedding mentality, expressed beautifully in candle topped painted bottles that ran down the long reception tables. What ensued is quite possibly one of the bigger wedding treats...

Katie Garrity & Ben Hulkower first met along their respective medical journeys thanks to a chance NYE encounter, only to fall in love for good, moving all along the country to strengthen their bond. Now resting in North Carolina, Katie & Ben opted to share their love for the gently rolling mountains with friends & family, at Claxton Farm, a place where the world could be seen 360 degrees. A natural rustic vibe was lent to the day, from farming details to homespun touches that were truly personal and close to the heart from both the couple's grandparents. An electric palette of bold blue and orange was injected throughout, creating an energy and buzz. Soaking in that true southern laissez faire attitude, guests were invited to sip on craft beers while playing lawn games, taking in the views around them.
Let's face it, the one thing above all that most couples fear leading up to their wedding day is weather. Utterly out of our control, weather is that one thing we feel could break us. The reality is, it often presents us with a gorgeous perspective we were too distracted with the outside world to see. Such is the case with Ashtyn & Carlton's late fall rustic wedding at L'Abri at Linwood. Like so very many couples that came before them, the original plan was to say I do a la nature under the hand crafted arbor built by Ashtyn's father specially for their day. As luck would have it weather moved in before the ceremony could get under way, forcing a venue change of indoor barn nuptials instead. The result is an airy, light filled wooden world that became the perfect locale for such a lovely totem to the day which was beautifully accented by lush fall flavored blooms from The Pink Peony.
