Backyard-Party-Wedding-on-July-4th (27 of 29)

Swapping out the traditional wedding decor for a backyard party extravaganza, complete with fun carnival games and a ferris wheel, Juan and Jamie chose to celebrate their new marriage by throwing the best carnival themed reception! The expert event planners at A Polished Plan designed an unforgettable night! Since the wedding was held on July 4th, the planners added an awesome firework show to end the night. The talented photographers at JAGstudios perfectly captured this incredible wedding!

The Couple:

Juan and Jamie

The Wedding:

Elizabeth Park Rose Garden, West Hartford, Connecticut

The Inspiration:

Our ceremony was held at my husband’s (so cool saying that!) parent’s house in Manchester, CT. Those angels let us turn their backyard into the party of our dreams, complete with flawless, rustic decor courtesy of our fantastic wedding planner and vendors plus this massive, beautiful white tent filled with all of our friends and family. Did I mention there was a ferris wheel? Yeah, there was a ferris wheel.

The Moments:

There was this moment towards the end of the night when my husband and I were riding the ferris wheel. The operators stopped when our car reached the top and we sat together, several feet above our friends and family, watching 4th of July fireworks and reflecting on what a beautiful thing we had done. Our wedding was almost secondary at that point– our love brought two very diverse families together that day and we were watching it all from what felt like the top of the world.

4th of July Wedding at The Ebell of Los Angeles

4th-of-July-Wedding-at-The-Ebell-of-Los-Angeles (16 of 24)

It’s Fourth of July, and we’re so excited to show you this red, white, and blue themed wedding at The Ebell of Los Angeles! Dark-blue table cloths, rich-red napkins, and lush, ivory florals created the perfect bold color combination for this fun couple. After meeting on the fourth of July a few years ago and getting engaged on the fourth of July two years after, it only seemed natural for the couple to design a Fourth of July wedding! Sterling Engagements created a beautiful design and ensured the wedding day went smoothly. Adding to the incredible team of professionals, Callaway Gable captured lovely moments of the couple on their big day!

The Couple:

Lindsay and Davin

The Wedding:

The Ebell of Los Angeles, Los Angeles, California

The Inspiration:

We knew we wanted a July 4th themed wedding since the holiday has such significance in our relationship. We were living in Hollywood when we got engaged and I think that is what inspired us to find an old Hollywood type venue. Once we had booked our wedding at The Ebell of Los Angeles, that really inspired all the wedding decor and fashion. Keeping my patriotic colors in mind (red, white and blue for the 4th) I generally selected flowers, decor, and fashion with a bit of old hollywood elegance.

The Moments:

My favorite moment from the wedding was our first dance. We went to a professional choreographer as we wanted to do something completely different. We are a very fun, life of the party kind of couple so we wanted our first dance to set the tone for the reception. We danced to a mashup of Love They Say by Tegan and Sara, Love is an Open Door from Frozen, Happy by Pharrel, and We Found Love by Rihanna. It was a blast and everyone at the wedding is still talking about it!

The Couple Recommends:

Alexandra Rembac of Sterling Engagements completely took my vision and brought it to life! She is amazing and the day would have not been what it was without her. Allison and Brian of Callaway Gable captured our love through the most beautiful and original wedding pictures. Anessa from The Ebell was so much fun to work with. The Ebell was an amazing venue to work with!

Rustic Southwestern Wedding in Golden Gate Canyon State Park

July 3, 2015 | jackie

After a romantic proposal weekend spent in tiny rustic cabin near hot springs, waterfalls, and mountains in Colorado, Stuart and Aly made the decision to host their enchanting wedding with the same theme. With all of its rustic character, the Red Barn at Golden Gate Canyon State Park was the perfect place for Stuart and Aly’s natural wedding. We love how the couple wrote the guests’ names on stones instead of using traditional place cards. And, to top it all off, the amazing Geoff Duncan was there to capture this incredible DIY wedding!

The Couple:

Stuart and Aly

The Wedding:

Red Barn at Golden Gate Canyon State Park, Golden, Colorado

The Inspiration:

We didn’t want to feel limited by a certain theme so we just went with what we liked! A little rustic, a little boho, a little southwest and a lot D.I.Y.! We wanted our friends in the wedding party to look good and feel good, so we gave them a little direction and trusted them to find something that worked. In the end, I am so glad we went this route. Our friends have great style and I’m happy it shows on our wedding day.

The Moments:

It’s all my favorite! Hearing Stuart’s vows while we were tucked into an aspen grove surrounded by everyone we love was pretty incredible. I’ll also never forget all the wonderful and heartfelt speeches from our friends and family… Including the one where one of my Maids of Honor decided we should sing a duet right then and there! Belting out Harry Nilsson’s “Let the Good Times Roll” goes in the books as my first karaoke experience!
