red, white, and blue

Red, white, and blue wedding

After a heart-breaking and horrifying week for the us here in the United States I thought that the red, white, and blue could use a little love. When thinking of this nation for inspiration of course the countryside sprang to mind, but not the rustic American farm wedding style we usually see. This time I wanted to wrap a sense of freedom and hope into it to brighten us all up a bit.
