Good morning, America! Our featured events (yes, not just one but two!) for today coincided with 4th of July so what better way to show their patriotism than have blue, red, and white as their wedding’s color theme. Sticking true to this idea, all-American details and decors such as stars and stripes were present. If you’re ever planning on having your wedding on the same date, then this is the perfect guide for you! Check them out now! Happy anniversary to these wonderful couples and everyone, have a happy July 4th!
Anna & Jon
The inspiration for Anna and Jon’s wedding originated the first time they learned about the history of St. Paul’s church in Newburyport, Massachusetts, the ceremony site, where Anna’s [bride] father has served as the assistant pastor.
They played it cool on the color scheme, often deferring to more muted ivories, dark and light reds, and a wide palette of blues, yellows and gold to keep the look modern, but also touched on classic Americana themes, decorating their gift, favor, and cake tables with props provided by their awesome coordinator who included details such as a vintage wooden Coca-Cola crate, excellent signage, hand-painted woodblocks, a vintage typewriter and cameras, calico ribbons, and other charming Americana touches that really completed the overall look and feel of the reception.
Cassandra & Ryan
Cassandra, a wedding planner herself, simply knew how to pull of a beautiful 4th of July wedding. The ceremony was in the Large Theatre at the Columbus Athenaeum. They slipped away to the Ohio Statehouse for their formals before heading to the Boathouse for their patriotic photo-op.
The 4th of July wedding theme is one of our favorite not only because it involves our cultural attachment to the United States as our homeland but also because of how extravagant and creative of a wedding it can make! We found the bold colors of red, white, and blue refreshing in this context and we suggest using stars and stripes to decorate your printed materials or reception venue.
