Dashing Officer Bridegroom Marries In A Dashing Uniform

Today I bring you a real wedding at a Naval Academy with some a handsome bridegroom in uniform.

(Actually the bride Jessica is a Naval officer too, but she's wearing her wedding dress.)

It's just like that old romantic movie "An Officer And A Gentleman" in real life. Dashing officers in dress white uniforms. An arch of swords. (As tradition has it, the last person in the sword arch gets to give the bride a traditional whack with his sabre welcoming the bride in to the service and to the family.)

A radiant bride. Glorious weather and an historic backdrop.

Quite a few special touches here that struck me.

red wedding shoes Love these scarlet shoes the bride chose. Wear white or ivory if you want to, but if you choose a statement pair of shoes you'll almost certainly get more wear out of them later - so you can buy the pair of your dreams.


Writing a handwritten note to your husband to be on the morning of your wedding is a special touch - and a letter he'll keep forever...

bride getting dressed You'll go through a range of emotions on the morning of your wedding day - so make sure your photographer captures them so you can remember how you felt

There's something about men in uniform, don't you think? There's something about men in uniform, don't you think?
