4th of July Rustic Meets Vintage Romance: Lindsay Herbst Photography

July is officially here along with the craziness of wedding season! I can’t believe how fast the summer is flying by and it just started. The 4th of July is by far one of my favorite holidays. I’m pretty sure it’s tied with Halloween for being number one, so when Lindsay Herbst Photography shared her recent patriotic shoot at Dubuque’s Ham House I was like a kid at Christmas opening the images.

Oh my, can we just talk about the gorgeous florals and mix-matched vintage looking bridesmaid dresses?! If viewing this inspiration doesn’t make you want to grab a coke, soak up the summer sun and sing Lee Greenwood’s “Cause I’m proud to be an American,” then I don’t know what will! I love the mix of rustic, romantic and vintage America all rolled up into one for some fun details perfect for a summer wedding, bridal shower or summer get together. Enjoy!
