The 4th of July is easily one of my favorite holidays. The color palette makes my patriotic heart palpitate, and if you know me at all, you know I am a total sucker for stripes. So when a pretty little shoot like this one lands in my lap, I become happier than I probably should admit. Captured by Cassandra Castaneda, with gorgeous florals from Emmy-Ray Floral and styling by Soirée Event Designs - this gallery is worth a sparkler send off. See it all here.

From Madi Sanders, Soirée Event Designs...Inspired by a romance as sweet and familiar as the taste of homemade apple pie, we desired to capture the beauty of timeless elegance with a nod to American tradition. A stately venue, red and white florals, gorgeous gown and just a little blue sparkle made a festive palette perfect for celebrating July 4th.
