Red, White & Blue – Americana Inspired Weddings

4th of July wedding

Every year brides across America attempt the impossible. A 4th of July inspired wedding without doing the impossible — going overboard with, well 4th of July.

The path to a successful Americana wedding is simple. Focus on the accents and small details. Staying away from the “traditional”  striped red white and blue linens that first come to mind is key. Focus on fun details that your guests will enjoy which will not turn your wedding looking like a 4th of July Bar-B-Que — even if it’s an outdoors wedding.

Another great suggestion for a 4th of July inspired weddings — Try choosing different hues of blue. Red and aquas really compliment each other and are fun and festive together. With these color combos, you are sure to see fireworks.

Real Weddings by Event Pros LA {Shirley+Shanne}

Long weekend weddings always seem to have something extra special to them. Is it the fact that many  people who attend the wedding came from far? Is it the fact that those who attend the wedding didn’t go away for the weekend because they really wanted to take part of a special occasion? I don’t know, but I do know that on Sept. 5th I had the privilage to coordinate Shirley and Shanne’s wedding at Saddle Rock Ranch Chateau Le Dome. The wedding was very intimate and detailed, and oh the romance… Each and every guest felt it falling from the stars that night.  Mazal Tov to both of you and thank you for letting Event Pros LA be a part of your special day.
