A Hawaiian Garden Styled Shoot

May 17, 2017

Imagining a modern take on garden meets the sea, this inspiration shoot created a tropical feel in a non- tropical location. The results? A sunny and elegantly beachy wedding that has us ready for summer!

Palm fronds and bright tropical flowers in gold geometric vases adorned the glass tables and tropical themed menu cards rounded out the look captured by Ariel Kaitlin Photography. Golden pineapples were a fun addition to the décor and truly brought the tropical theme to life! Fruit skewers acted as the perfect refreshing hors d’oeuvre and a simple three-tiered white wedding cake with bright flowers and palm leaves were effortlessly beachy chic.

Several of the models were real-life couples (including the bride and groom) which added a fun element to the day. The bride’s flowy gown with its plunging neckline and lace detailing were absolutely perfect for tropical nuptials. The men were the epitome of resort dressy in their khakis, crisp white shirts and navy suspenders with bowties. The breathtaking bridal bouquets were composed of giant palm fronds and flowers in bright tropical.

Dreaming of a tropical wedding? Then this Raleigh wedding shoot is inspiration for you!
