Although not a national holiday until 1941, Americans have been celebrating Independence Day with family and friends, at picnics and with fireworks, since the American Revolution in 1776. What better way to honor our soldiers and commemorate July 4th, than with a rustic military wedding shoot. Opposites definitely attract, don’t they? Maybe that’s why we love the look of mess dress in a rustic setting.

1. Memorable Moments: Imagine your first look photos taken on an open road under a canopy of trees and filtering light.
