Election day is finally here, and Red or Blue, this politically-themed wedding from Ashley Dru Photography will put a smile on face and love in your heart! Planning their big day to be completely reflective of their personalities, this super-cute (and super-creative!) couple put together an where all of their favorite people could gather around them to “Rally for Love!” I could go on forever about this sweet as can be fête, but I’ll leave you here with a gallery full of images!
From Ashley Dru Photography… Jameson and Suzanne’s wedding was the one of the most unique weddings I’ve ever had the privilege of attending … and in the most amazing way possible. They threw away the wedding rule book, and everything about the day completely and wholeheartedly embodied Jameson and Suzanne as individuals and as a couple. They celebrated their love in the best way possible, exactly the way THEY wanted!
All weekend, friends and family gathered in Camarillo, California. On the morning of the big day, the couple got ready at different locations while friends and family gathered at The French Bulldog. Laughter was shared, breakfast hors d’oeuvres were eaten, and the most amazing rally for love started to form. So if you know Jameson and Suzanne at all, you would know that politics have a strong presence in their relationship and their lives in general. So the two wanted their wedding to be more like a political rally. You are probably thinking, a political wedding? How in the world does that work? But when you are rallying for love, there are no sides. There isn’t a debate — no hate — and it was completely the opposite of what I think a typical political rally would be like. It was a rally/campaign for one of the most precious gifts that we have the privilege of giving and receiving: LOVE. So the whole day was full of red, white, blue, campaign signs, buttons with the couples faces on them, blow-horns and a whole lot of awesome people rallying together for two people’s love.
Then around noon everyone marched across the street and joined in a flash-mob/rally/pop-up wedding ceremony, complete with chanting and signs held high into the sky. It was one of the most magical things I have ever seen. The afternoon ended with everyone socializing over amazing food and drinks at The French Bulldog. Later, around sunset, we did most of the bridal portraits on the beach in front of the beach house where the couple stayed all weekend. The beach house was loaned out for the weekend by a friend of the family. Everyone in the couples family helped make the day a success and almost the entire wedding way DIY by the bride and groom and their families.
