I wanted to go about celebrating Independence Day a bit differently this year and when this total gem from international wedding photographer A Fist Full Of Bolts kind of fell into my lap, I knew I had scored the perfect thing! If you didnt already know, photographers have a mutual admiration society and crush just as hard on each other's work as we do. When they are able to align schedules you better believe that a bit of photo magic happens! Such is the case with Brooklyn based wedding photographers Chellise Michael Photography who were able to snag a love session with the utterly creative crew at AFFOB. There is a certain kind of magic that happens when photographers pose for other photographers that you simply dont quite get under other circumstances. There is an awareness that allows all insecurities to be striped away, a comfort level that results in pure moments of emotion and playfulness. Whether setting out to do so or not, the session oozes pure Americana perfection. A boy and a girl, blue jeans, and a gently loved old glory all set in iconic Brooklyn New York. There are so many things to love about this Americana love session, with a few moments that steal my breath, ones that could easily slide into any advertising campaign. Magic, pure epic Americana magic, but really isnt that what this holiday is all about?!
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!

I should apologize for the sheer landslide of photos but I can't. I won't. It is practically everything when a designer 'Gets It' and I am not even talking about just the fashion end of things. We already knew Sareh Nouri gets it from her repeat collection after collection of romantic wedding dresses that has left more then a gal or two breathless. I had an inkling of just how much Sareh Nouri gets it from previous editorial lookbooks showcasing past collections... but its THIS editorial that cements it, Sareh Nouri is the author of wedding dreams, full stop. Whether we realize it or not, the wedding dress simply isnt an article of clothing, but the piece that sets the tempo. It is the very piece to the wedding puzzle that unapologetically declares what this wedding will be. Bohemian and free spirited, formal & glam, or perhaps a romantic celebration of feminine beauty. I realize now just how much Sareh Nouri gets the big picture, the beauty to crafting the whole vision. When I took the collection in in person during fashion week I was struck by how well Sareh knows the romance game.
