Memorial Day Wedding Photos

Memorial Day is one of my favorite holiday weekends of the year. It's the unofficial kickoff to summer, which means lots of BBQs, beach time, refreshing drinks and of course... wedding season! I've put together some of my favorite Americana wedding inspiration on Loverly -- from the classic military grooms, to the red/white/blue color palette to outdoor inspiration galore. May you be inspired!
