Happy 4th of July - Love TréCreative

I've always loved the Fourth of July. Backyard barbecues with friends and family, a refreshing pool party, and yummy food and fun all around. Seriously, who doesn't love getting to celebrate with friends and fireworks?!?

As the summer is in full swing now, I always look forward with anticipation to our Independence Day. With the 4th falling on the weekend this year and next, we know it'll be a popular wedding date for adventurous couples around the world! Thinking of all the fun routes a couple could go with this patriotic wedding theme, we had a blast putting this "styled shoot" together. For those of you who are new to this term, a Styled Shoot is basically where a bunch of vendors get together to collaborate, creating something unique and fun!

To match this 4th of July theme, we knew we wanted bold red, white and blue colors. I've also been on a glitter craze lately, so that had to be incorporated. I love it's brightness and shine it can add to the simplest of things. From the flowers to the vintage Honda moped, we just fell in love with how everything flowed together to create the perfect Fourth of July inspired session.

We wanted to keep this shoot local, so we chose our very own Bidwell Park, a iconic Chico spot. Today, the park will be full of families celebrating together, having cookouts and swimming in the creek.

One of my favorite parts of the summer is the delicious and refreshing summer fruit salads. We wanted to make sure to incorporate all these delicious fruits in the deserts. OH and how can we not mention Phyllis, the amazingly talented French Bulldog who graced us with her presence for this shoot.  Stephen and I are dying to get a Frenchie or something similar and hopefully will someday soon!

What a treat it was to collaborate with so many amazing vendors, we're so thankful for them! List of vendors at the end of the post :D Happy 4th of July to everyone, light a firework for me!
