When it comes to a classic wedding in Virginia, nothing makes my heart happier than a traditional military wedding. (Or maybe it’s the men in uniform? Let’s just go with both.) And this one captured by Evelyn Alas Photography? It’s a good one, folks. This celebration of love is chocked full of fun DIY wedding details, from the invitation suite to the ceremony programs and everything in between. Be sure to join us this afternoon when we turn up the glam factor for a golden celebration!
From Kelley: After picking a date and location we decided to go with gold as our color theme. It would match the best with both our ceremony and reception locations. The glitter part of the theme came from my pageant side. I am a retired pageant girl and love all things that sparkle. Glitter, gold, white, and black were our official colors.
Since Chris is in the military I knew I wanted him and his groomsmen to wear their uniforms. That being said I wanted it to be semi formal since the guys would be dressed so nice.
