July 4th Beachy Wedding Inspiration

july 4th wedding inspiration

Inspired by the effortlessly cool vibe of the West Coast surfer community during the 1970’s, this July 4th styled shoot is sure to bring lots of fun Americana ideas to mind. :) In small West Coast beach towns (such as Shell Beach, California where this shoot takes place), the 4th of July is one of the the most important holidays. Block parties are thrown, whole neighborhood streets are closed off, and people young and old get together to celebrate the birth of our nation. BBQs, bonfires, games, all american pride: this is a childhood memory that lingers in all beach community locals. Perfect inspiration for a couple that live a beachy lifestyle and want to combine their love for the surf as well as that special holiday memory they both hold dear to their heart for their big day! With this shoot the creative team (lead by photographer Danielle Capito + florist Twiggs Floral Studio) wanted to combine all those key elements to make a perfect nontraditional 4th of July wedding.
