You read that right. Americana. It refers to the folklore and culture of the United States. While other people might consider a European-inspired wedding, I would like something really speaks to some place that I consider my home. Here are four places that I consider quintessentially American.
1. A Light House
Yea, sure, the Ancient Greeks had them. The Egyptians had them. The British, too, but if you're in New England. A light house suggests America's proud colonial heritage and clam bakes!
2. The Woods
Think Lewis and Clark and the untouched wilderness. Mining for gold in California. Paul Bunyan. Johnny Appleseed. The Oregon Trail.
3. The Old Southern Mansion
Gone With the Wind, Souther hospitality, sweet tea, and bourbon peach pie. These tall stately white washed buildings are often historical monuments and not terribly expensive. However, the equipment you might need to rent might be considerably more.
4. The Saloon
I imagine that you can move from a little church and have the reception in a renovated saloon in the style of the Wild Wild West. The stuff of cowboys and Old Westerns. Wouldn't your fiance look handsome as a desperado or a sheriff?
