Tampa Bay weddings are known to have their own unique style. If you’re hosting a summer wedding, particularly around the Fourth of July, you cannot go wrong adding patriotic flair to your big day!

Whether it’s touches of red, white and blue or honoring those who serve, we’ve asked our top Tampa Bay wedding photographers to share their favorite patriotic inspired wedding day moments.

Melissa and the girls got ready for her wedding at the Tampa Marriott Waterside. All of her details were U.S. flag themed, but my favorite were the monogrammed flag shirts each of the girls wore. Their bridal suite had beautiful natural light, so this fun moment with a flag beach ball was a must!” -Jeff Mason, Jeff Mason Photography

“Jenny and Paul both serve our country in the military. Paul is in the Marines. and their exit down the stairs of Sacred Heart Catholic Church was under a saber arch. It’s a worldwide wedding tradition in which sabers or swords are used to salute a newly married couple, and it welcomes the bride into the Marine Corps family. They just look so happy and fun here!” -Carrie Wildes, Carrie Wildes Photography

“This beautiful wedding is the embodiment of patriotism. Kyla and John decided to carry the theme of red, white, and blue throughout the entire process, even going so far as to set the date of the ceremony on Independence Day. The cake stood out to me in particular due to its white and blue stripes being perfectly accented by gorgeous red roses.” -Rebecca Zoumberos, Limelight Photography
