Children at weddings? A bit of a controversial topic amongst wedding guests and the bride and groom, children at weddings are becoming a regular affair. Why? Well, most brides and grooms already have children before they decide to take the plunge. Backwards you may think but thanks to a boom of celebrities like Jessica Simpson, Kourtney Kardashian, Mila Kunis to name a few, starting a family before saying I do is almost starting to become a trend.
Yes, there are some advantages to having children before you get married. Although some may be a bit traditional, we have had the pleasure to marry many many couples that have children together. I have noticed that the couples that have children before marriage tend to be a little more relaxed on their wedding day. Not sweating the small stuff is what they endure everyday with a child after all so it comes naturally to them. You also get to involve your child in one of the biggest days of your lives together as a couple.

In light of The Fourth Of July celebrations, I always think of July as the patriotic month. Coming from a military family myself, I have a special place in my heart for the men and women that serve and protect our country! Realizing that it is especially difficult to plan a wedding when your spouse is stationed overseas and unavailable to make important decisions with you for your special day. I want to pay tribute to these couples and highlight how beautiful the photos from a military wedding can be!
Incorporating patriotic elements into your ceremony and reception can sometimes be a bit over done. Here are some great examples of executing this theme to perfection.
