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...

With a fresh and enlighten view on the wedding day, Adela & Teodor Negrea married in a locale uniquely special to them both. For their offbeat wedding with a truly laid back party feel, the couple knew without question that the grounds of Banffy Castle was the perfect spot, as it is also the home to the Electric Castle Festival, a musical festival directed by the groom himself! Channeling their funky & free spirited personalities, the couple used the refined venue as a spring board for the delightfully eclectic day featuring touches like a raised balloon garden, a light strand embraced tented reception and a dance floor under the stars! While the wedding world is a wash these days in a sea of lace & fluff, I adore just a bit more couples who buck the traditional ways and truly get down with their eclectic side!

Our wedding would be considered rustic, shabby chic, whimsical, colorful, romantic, and personal. Most of the flowers we used were whimsy colorful wildflowers. The location had a lot of character. We got married outside on the property of a private residence. There was an old covered wagon on the property as well as a rustic wooden horse wagon. We had antique wagon wheel chandeliers in our reception tent. All of my bridesmaids each wore a different shade of coral from dark to light to create an ombre effect. We had a unity tree ceremony. We had lawn games during cocktail hour (custom made bean bag toss and ladder ball). Our wedding reception dinner was served family style with a salad, a chicken pasta, and fresh wood fired pizzas served tableside. We had different flavored cupcakes and cake pops for dessert all served from birch wood platters. There were lots of candles and lanterns to provide romantic lighting. Our transportation for our guests was yellow school buses (because I'm a teacher!)
