Here it is the start of July once more!  In celebration of the 4th I've decided to run this gem of a post once more.  I find myself going for so many of the same elements all over again a year later.  In other words--does it get any better than this?  Vintage junkie that I am, I knew it was just the thing to show off a little patriotic-inspired fashion, food and table decor in honor of our  nation's birthday. The backyard BBQ is the perfect theme for a July 4 or Independence Week wedding.  Justin Alexander's just above the ankle semi-formal dress is jauntily paired up with a small cage veil and red mules.  For me the desert bar is the piece de resistance featuring various sweets in red, white and blue against the backdrop of antique and vintage design elements.
