I am simply crazy about this Virginia inspiration shoot exquisitly designed by Kelley Cannon Events and lovingly photographed by Anne Robert Photography. Seriously, every little detail, every flower, every place setting is divine. Give me pops of vibrant colors paired with stripes any day of the week and I am a happy, happy girl. And her hair! Oh, her hair! It is just sweet, sweet perfection. I would love to see this modern garden party brought to life. So get a move on and get inspired in the full gallery!
From Anne Robert Photography…After having found our venue for another shoot, a private estate in Middleburg, VA, Kelley and I were so inspired by the lush greenness of our surroundings that we decided we had to create another, more summery concept for a second shoot. We both knew we wanted a colorful palette and bright florals which would exude the feeling summer brings so when we came across Erdem’s Asta print dress we knew we had our concept. We used the design which contained nautical stripes and a bold floral pattern as our inspiration throughout the shoot from the table linens to the bride’s hair piece and jewelry.
Just like the dress, we wanted our “wedding” to be playful, edgy, bright and feminine all at the same time. For the tablescape, we combined nautical navy blue and white striped linens with vibrant colors such as red, fuchsia, yellow, orange, blue and green in the Anthropologie “Flights and Fancy” dinnerware, red stemware and floral arrangements created by the always amazing Holly Chapple. To unify the colors, we added touches of rustic elements and gold accents in the centerpieces using wood and gold frames. The frame and floral concept was carried out again above our “Favorites Table” which featured all of the bride and groom’s favorite foods and again in the seed packets we envisioned as favors for our guests. The Rivini short rosette dress from their spring 2011 collection, Trina Turk hot pink shift dress tied and the fabulously edgy hair and make-up tied in perfectly with our overall vision.
