Congratulations. While I’m incredibly happy for you, make sure you’re ready to be a military spouse. Being together is great, but there are times when you’re not together and you’ll likely be living in an unfamiliar place. I know a few recently married spouses who are having a really difficult time with the life style, especially the ones who have never lived with their new spouses and don’t know what to expect. I’m not saying you fall into this category, but learn everything you can about being a military spouse to better prepare yourself. It’s a good life, but it can be challenging.

 I shot a really pretty air force wedding on Langley AFB last September. The bride used your exact colors. I think court house weddings are incredibly romantic though 🙂

I will try to get some of the pics from my wedding. We got married 4th of July weekend and did a red, white, and blue theme. With trying to make it NOT look tacky like a 4th of July picnic. Our favors I really liked and they were super cheap. Everyone got a small american flag that had our name and wedding date on it. You could maybe even tie a yellow ribbon or something on them to tie that color in. I got them at Orientaltrading.com. I did NOT like the plastic caps that were on the top of the flags so i painted them all with a gold (you could do silver) paint. Made them  look SOOO much nicer. I think yellow ribbon added to things will be really nice seeing as thats they color ribbon for “our troops”.

I agree with @KT_Williams that red, white, and blue can border on July 4th picnic. I would suggest a more rustic color pallet like the star in the link below. And if you love yellow daisies, use them for your flowers. That will be a nice pop of color against AF blues. Or you can do dark blue (like darker than the sky AF blue) with a rich silver and gold. Depending on where y’all live and what bases are nearby, you can check out the base social club (formerly officer’s clubs). They are very reasonably priced, and many are decorated in the colors you’re already looking at. Hope this helps, and congrats!

Do you have any pictures from your wedding? My fiance is in the USAF and wearing dress blues so by default our wedding color is navy blue. However we would love to add some patriotic flair.
