summer picnic wedding

summer picnic wedding inspiration

This summer picnic wedding inspiration board is a breath of fresh air and perfect for the slightly offbeat but definitely chic bride. The wildflower field, vintage touches, summer hat instead of a veil, and bright yellows paired with a subtle grapefruit/blush color are all details to adore and welcome the new season with!

Side note: if you’re a regular around here then you’ve probably noticed that I have switched to a sidebar/content layout. But fear not – just click the inspiration board and it will zoom out! I also want to say thank you for putting up with me as I make these changes. I have to manually go through each and every post on this blog and reformat it for the new layout, which is going to take some weeks (and likely cause gray hair). So please ‘pardon the dust’ while I do spring cleaning here on Burnett’s Boards!

  1. […] The couples’ styling in this picnic engagement session is perfect; from all dressed up for the first portion of the shoot to a more casual look in the second. The bride-to-be rocked a boho look with a loose, summery shift dress and flower crown while her beau keeps things formal yet casual with the perfect short sleeve button up and bow tie. It’s picnic perfection! […]
