Real Wedding: Independence Day Inspiration

Chelsea Pellegrino


Being a member of the U.S. Armed Forces is an extremely special attribute, so it’s only right that a service person’s wedding day be an outstanding one.

In honor of Independence Day, we want to spotlight this spectacular military wedding. Groom James married his beautiful bride Chelsea at the breathtaking destination setting of Fort Lauderdale Beach, Florida. The couple incorporated their surroundings into the theme, with a pale ocean blue color scheme, starfish accents, and even a seashell-covered cake!  Don't take our word for it- view the photos, captured by the talented 84 West Studios.
