When you have a bride, who according to her Dad, was "born to be a wedding planner," you know three things are definite when it comes to her own wedding day. There will be an unforgettable theme. The décor will be too fab with a dash of whimsy. Loads of smiles, laughter and pure fun will be had - those should count as three alone! This 4th of July theme wedding in Ohio was not just one theme, but a dose of Kate Spade, Lilly Pulitzer and good ol' American down home enjoyment blended into one. Don't expect college sweethearts, Ryan and Event Prep Cassandra Creer's wedding day to be all about the red, white and blue though. It definitely gives a nod to their preppy style with a tropical twist. Their day was the perfect mash up of eccentric, extravagant, and creative details in their 4th of July theme wedding with a sparkling finish. From glamorous sequins, summery pinks and greens, pom poms with champagne to flamingos, American flags her ga-ga-gorgeous Lazaro ball gown, Cassandra impressed. Robb McCormick Photography not only captured all the prettiness, but the couple's boisterous spirits and love that shine through.

4th of July Theme Wedding

Cassandra and Ryan held their 4th of July theme wedding with a ceremony at the Large Theater at the Columbus Athenaeum. Their beautiful nuptials were followed by a reception that will long be forgotten by anyone in attendance. The reception was held at the Boathouse at Confluence Park where Cassandra did nearly all the decorations herself. Upon entering the room, the impressive display set the tone for the party that was to come. With subtle touches, the room held a blend of two renowned designers that influence Cassandra - Kate Spade and Lilly Pulitzer. With bold striped linens gracing the tables, pops of hot pink and flamingos peppering the scene right to the topping of their four-tiered cake by The End Dessert Company in was the ideal mixture. An unexpected and delightful fusion of these two chic styles. The unconventional ambiance was elegant and the touches of humor that were incorporated warmed the scene including cute little notes for each guest, making it more than personal. We adore how this 4th of July theme wedding had so many creative and personal touches reflecting a couple that clearly adores each other.
