The Fourth of July is an absolute perfect weekend for a summer wedding!! The weather is perfect, it’s a 3 day weekend, family and friends are already in a festive mood…….and……there are SO MANY fab ways to incorporate Red, White and Blue and a love for the good ol’ USA into your day!!!

Here is a round up of some of our favorite images of patriotic brides and couples as well as decor and floral.

I love the idea of bordering the dinning area or the aisles and chairs of the ceremony with these American Flag bandannas. Or, how about blue and red bandannas?!

Up the USA WOW factor and the end of the celebrations by pairing the modern classic sparkler send off with small American flags for all your guests to wave as you and your love make your grand exit.

What could be more perfect for a Fourth of July wedding than a classic American back yard Bar-B-Q?!?!

Picnic tables, mason jar cocktails, a decked out hamburger slider bar, and of course cold beer!!!!!

So often in the wedding a beauty industry you hear the word “Princess”. Things like “Every girl wants to be a princess on her special day” “She looks like a princess!!”

While these crowns are absolutey stunning enough for royalty on a wedding day, for me they conjure up ideas of Garden Goddess and Bridal Fairy.

I am a firm believer that literally any hair style is greatly inproved with a flower crown, this is a quick round up of some of out favorites weve come across in the last few weeks.

These romantic up-dos are perfect for hot steamy summer months by keeping the hair off the neck and out of the face while celebrating.

Heather 1

A few weeks ago we got to be part of the completely adorable Heathers big day. Heather and all her friends and family are those kind of folks with bright smiles, big laughs and warm hearts and you could feel all that love the moment you walked in at the start of that beautiful day!!

Heather and her sweetie Anthony had their splendid wedding at TPC Summerlin and perfect spring weather could not have worked out better.  Kara from Kandy Lane Photography was able to capture some really fabulous shots of the beautiful bride and her wedding party in that lovely later afternoon light.

 

 

 

Heather 2

This is my ABSOLUTE favorite shot from the day!! I love this sweet moment of all the women in Heather’s family dotting on her and helping her make the trip down the aisle.  It reminds me that each of the people there on your day are special for different reasons, but every single one of them is there to play their part and celebrate you and your love!!!

CONGRATULATIONS HEATHER AND ANTHONY!!!!!

May you carry the love, joy and excitement from this wonderful day with you as you start this new exciting chapter together as husband and wife!! Best wishes to the both of you!!!!!

For more than 10 years we have watched the lovely Miss Lauren Conrad go from every ones California sweet heart crush on MTVs Laguna Beach (uhhh hello…..really more than 10 years ago?!?!) to fierce lifestyle fashion vixen. And I have LOVED every minute of it!!!

LC Dress 4

 

From beautiful hand lettered stationary and trendy party decorations to must-have summer reading lists and absolutely delish cocktail and brunch recipes Lauren Conrad has built a brand and business around encouraging Millennial ladies (and really- every one else) to really live the good life and to look and feel fabulous while doing it!!

 

She and the incredibly creative and fashionable team at Paper Crown have release a line of really beautiful bridesmaids dresses. While I would be more than happy to wear any of these whimsical dresses as one of my besties walked down the aisle I would also be more than happy to wear these so many other places too!! Hello flowing festival flowers?! Why, yes please dinner out on the town!!!!

 

LC Dress 1  LC Dress 3

 

I get such a tickle out of when a bride decides to put her brides maids in mix matched dresses- I really think it gives every one a chance to find a cut and style that it comfortable to their body.

I just about squealed when I saw this lovely bridal party in pastel dresses by Paper Crown!!

Brenda 1

Although it doesn’t come up to often out here in Las Vegas, just about everyone, every where in the wedding industry knows the old adage that “rain on your wedding day means good luck and blessings for a happy marriage”.  While it is a sweet idea and and a way to see the silver lining in a soggy situation, it can be hard to convince couples that wake up on the morning of their weddings to rain and thunder that all will work out perfect.

 

Brenda 4

That was the situation that Brenda and Jonny started their wedding day with, but these two love birds were completely unfazed and you could feel the electric excitement as the both of them prepared for their wedding at breath taking Legends Ranch.

Brenda had an elegant rustic vision for her day, inspired by the rustic minimalism of herbs and potted plants, and knew that she wanted her wedding party in boots!! With the help and guidance of the INCREDIBLY talented Weddings and Events by Emily her ideas became a stunning reality that even a spring thunder storm couldn’t damper.
