From now on, every time I think of our nation’s birthday, I’ll remember Allyson & Tyler’s anniversary! Check out their fabulous 4th of July, red, white & blue, Americana inspired wedding that I photographed last year. It was truly a DIY family affair. Everyone pitched in to make their wedding day special.

Fabric covered hay bales, borrowed chairs and benches made great seating. Allyson’s mom Wendy is an amazing seamstress and made all of the quilts, tablecloths and banners. She also made the groomsmen’s personalized vests.

Earlier this month I photographed this lovely, nontraditional wedding at Clos LaChance winery! The landscape and gardens were in full bloom and it was a perfect spring day.

bride in red dressI love working with florist Lezlie Johnson! She is always so creative with her designs. She once told me that the bouquet should always compliment the bride’s dress. I love how she complimented this red bridal gown! This might be the largest peony I’ve ever seen!

Reverend Donna with Honey in the Heart Ceremonies made the vow exchange so special. The couple had a crystal ceremony. So cool!

I think I’m going to be comparing every salad I have in the future to Cafe Primavera‘s berry and spinach creation below.

Once the dancing started, the dance floor was packed all night long. That’s usually the case when the DJ is Jon from Belmont Entertainment!
