A Salute to Veteran's in Love

Posted by on Nov 11, 2011 in Blog | 2 Comments

Today is Veteran’s Day, so hug (or at least just say thank you) to someone you know who has served in the Armed Forces or supports a man or woman in the Armed Forces. Growing up, Veterans Day always seemed a holiday for the greatest generation, but now, after 10 years of being at war, Veteran’s Day is just as much a day for the young… and for those getting married!

There’s nothing quite as stunning as a military wedding… it’s the uniform, I’m sure. But behind the striking tradition and celebration is often a lot of stress and anxiety of dealing with wedding plans combined with the strains of serving, or returning from service. Please enjoy our board of Military Weddings through the years…. Your service and courage is greatly appreciated.

    Such a touching board of photos. I absolutely love the blue shoes matched to the uniform in the second photo (…although it makes me nervous that she’s on the dirt in her dress!)
