Every heart rings true for the red, white, and blue! This couple decided not only to show off how happy they are to be with each other, but also how proud they are to be involved with the military. With the help of Ashley + David Photography, they set a scene full of red, white, and blue with cute as can be vintage Americana accents like and old film camera and bottled soda.

… It was a gorgeous day for Trish and Richard’s engagement session picnic. Richard currently serves in the military and Trish is from a military family, so they wanted to incorporate a patriotic theme into their engagement session and wedding. Keeping their ‘Vintage Americana’ theme in mind, we did our best to work in as much red, white, and blue as we could find! These two were lovely to work with though – completely natural and very much in love! :)

I’m not sure who came up with our modern reception convention, but I’m glad they did. Weddings are full of so much joy and happiness, it’s preposterous to think you could do anything but dance. And as you can see from We Are Caravan‘s video, this couple knows how to throw one heck of a party. This video is so good, it’ll make you want to jump on in with them by the end. So let the toe-tapping begin!

…Danielle and Matthew are a beautiful couple we had the privilege to work with this past October, and we loved their idea for a small, intimate wedding ceremony at the Old Edwards Inn in Highlands, NC followed a couple days later by a big reception with all their friends and family at Byron’s Southend here in Charlotte. Isn’t Danielle’s dress AMAZING? Also who doesn’t love a wedding band called Mr. Potato Head and a glow stick send off? Needless to say, I think their reception was a pretty good time. We had so much fun working with all the other vendors for this wedding.
