Modern 4th of July Summer Wedding Inspiration

Wedding Design

We’re kicking off 4th of July weekend with a bit of ultra modern Independence Day inspiration straight from the rooftops of LA. This shoot from Jessica Lynne Studios, Inessa Nichols Design, and Blue Box Events trades in the traditional red, white, and blue for a palette of black, white, gold, and a burst of greenery for an ultra mod feel. Prepare yourself to be inspired and have a happy 4th, all!

From the photographer, Jessica of Jessica Lynne Studios: The City of Angels shoot is inspiration for the modern LA bride who wants to embrace her *own* style on her wedding day. With this shoot, we sought to create something that would appeal that trendy LA couple who frequents Verve Coffee, lives in a historic artist loft and could be found meandering around the flower market on Saturday mornings.

To achieve this very minimal, modern LA vibe, we took bridal style somewhere different – keeping our florals to only greenery, letting the groom wear his favorite denim jacket instead of a tux & choosing a venue with the very best view of the city.

One of my favorite parts of the shoot was the Mondrian-inspired greenery wall that Inessa created. Not to mention, the sassy black & white American flag table and most of all ending on a helipad overlooking the entire City of Angels. We are so thrilled to share the outcome – we had the time of our lives creating this!

Punta Mita Destination Wedding and Rehearsal Dinner

Beach Weddings

We have a truly special treat for you all today — not only are we sharing the beautiful destination wedding of Juliana and Marty, but we’ve also got their rehearsal dinner to share as well! Geoff Duncan Photography took the reins behind the camera for both days, which were loaded with entertainment, good food, and breathtaking views.

From the bride, Juliana: We wanted to stick to the traditional Mexican theme. Lots of dancing with great food, drinks and music. I really wanted all those who I care about the most to have a wonderful time in a beautiful setting. I love these Mexican tablecloths so we decided we would use them for the dinner tables and coordinate all the colors involved… we used every color. Blue, green, red, orange, pink, yellow, purple. My mother already owned a bunch so we borrowed some of my aunt’s and she stain guarded all of them. She also DIYed the gift bags and water bottles. The gift bags were incredible. My mom went to the market in Mexico and bought the bags and then filled them with the wedding program, Texas Trash, the middle size Herradura tequila, two glass tequila glasses with the cactus in the middle and water bottles with our names on them.

Any advice for couples planning their weddings now? You know, we didn’t do this but I wish we did — since my wedding my friends have started a photo share on icloud or photocircle. I think it’s a great way to see your wedding from different perspectives and its fun to see how people enjoyed the day when it.s a destination wedding.

We combined our first dance with our father daughter dance and mother and groom dance. Marty and I dance for the first 45 seconds and then our parents cut in. I didn’t want this part to be very long so we tried to do it all in one song.
