As the fall is quickly settling in around us, I thought it would be a fun time to share this awesome tropical inspired styled shoot that I had the privilege to be a part of! I worked with one of my friends, Toni Goodie, and the amazing Rachel Monk of Wildflower Wedding CO to create this incredible inspiration shoot. We had a great time brainstorming tropical ideas and thinking of fun ways to bring the island inspiration to Fairhope, Alabama! Rachel was the key piece of this styled shoot. Not only did she envision such a beautiful shoot, but she brought together all of the little details for the design, table setting, and she arranged all of the beautiful flowers you’re going to see!
Tropical Wedding Inspiration
After all of the planning, it was finally time to host and photograph our tropical wedding day! While looking for the perfect models, we met Cecelia and Blake, who are actually married in real life. Sadly, the two didn’t have a wedding when they got married. Because of that, they were incredibly grateful to have these beautiful images to treasure. Knowing that made this shoot extra special for all of us involved!!
To bring the tropics alive, we stuck with a bright and fun color palette. Rachel chose hot pink, blush pink, gold, and pops of blue in the stationery set and groom’s attire. It was perfect! Along the waterfront of Fairhope, AL we really brought the tropics alive!! Rachel created a gorgeous dessert table to house the simple wedding cake (love that starfish accent!!). It was adorable and full of perfect gold details. With all of the bright pops of pink in the flowers and decorations, it was hard to remember we weren’t actually in the tropical islands somewhere!
All of us hope that other couples might find our tropical wedding inspiration helpful when planning their big day! We definitely found that beach inspiration can lead to a truly beautiful wedding day!
