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!

If you're of the mind set that a smashing wedding filled with sweet little design details on a limited budget is something that simply can not be done, you have not yet to see the mountain wedding of Roxy Tanase & Jacob Frey. Though budget conscious weddings aren't our focus, every now and again one comes across my desk that I love to share. Nestled into a special childhood locale for Jake, the couple said 'I Do' at the edge of a small lake within the Sierra Nevada Mountain range while guests were seated on handmade wood benches from a friend. Bouquets, boutonnieres, centerpieces and the like were crafted integrating local wildflowers while handmade paper detailing in the form of paper roses & fans injected a whimsical and vibrant touch. From Anthropologie dresses to Ted Baker groomsmen wear, the wedding fashion was another highlight, with Roxy's Claire Pettibone Clover Dress setting the most perfect of rustic boho vibe for all. With a gorgeous vista view, small intricate detailing and an eye on whimsical trends, this mountain wedding is a true treat!
