Classy Summertime Picnic Party by Anne Roberts Photography
Posted by Kate. Filed under Real Weddings

Colleen and Zachary envisioned a summertime wedding reminiscent of a classy dinner party, but combined with the relaxed charm of a picnic.  The outcome?  Hands down one of the most sophisticated, unique, and lovely weddings I’ve seen!  We’re overjoyed to feature their love story and beautiful wedding day photos by Anne Robert Photography as this week’s Real Wedding of the WeekColleen has always loved the small details that make a wedding special.  Together with event designer, Vicki Grafton of My Simple Details, she went to work implementing the dozens of unique elements that imbued the day with classy, summer style.  When Colleen first started planning, she found a photo of a bride and groom dancing on a checkered floor.  She was captivated; the vision and color palette unfolded from there.  Black and white gingham accents appeared throughout the day, and contrasted with a palette of champagne bridesmaid’s dresses and dramatic crimson florals.  Colleen’s look was feminine and romantic, and she carried a dreamy, lush bouquet by Petals & Hedges.  After a traditional ceremony at the same church that Colleen’s grandparents wed,  the happy couple and their guests traversed from D.C. to Arlington’s Hendry House for a dashing reception filled to the brim with darling details.  From the relaxed charm of the red bicycle and gingham napkins, to the refined sophistication of calligraphed place cards and casual-elegance centerpieces, the party was overwhelmingly stylish.  

Swoon.. (And the bride’s first dance dream came true)!  There’s much more to see, enjoy the full feature here…
