A Preppy Summer Wedding in Washington, D.C.

Steps from the White House, one couple hosts a romantic, sophisticated fete with pink accents on everything from the cocktail bar to the bouquets—and the most adorable flower girl this side of the Potomac River.

A hard hat might not be every girl's best look—but the bright yellow helmet certainly worked for Elizabeth when she met Louis for the first time in a construction zone. "Louis was working as a contractor for a sustainable school project I was managing," explains Elizabeth, a financial manager at the World Wildlife Fund, Inc. "Even though we were both wearing hard hats, there was an instant connection at the coordination meeting."

For their June nuptials, the couple enlisted the help of Ritzy Bee Events to orchestrate a pale pink and green event that was at once "soft, romantic and simply sophisticated," the bride says. "Ritzy Bee Events took our scattered, disconnected thoughts and preferences and turned them into an absolutely perfect wedding."
