I am SO excited to share today's patriotic Veteran's Day styled shoot with y'all. Why? Because it was concieved, created, and styled by none other than moi (of Kiss My Tulle), the lovely Katie of Lovebird Productions, Melisa of Melisa Urban Photography, and Amanda Mann (of my matron-of-honor fame).
We wanted to show y'all that you can have a chic and contemporary wedding reception that salutes the red, white, and blue but doesn't look like a Fourth of July float. This look was created for those of you interested in hosting a patriotic wedding reception in a casual setting (possibly serving BBQ or a tasty picnic meal). It's chalk full of do-able DIYs, inexpensive touches, and loads of charm.
