Tropical Wedding FashionWords by Courtney Kellar

Incorporating a twist of tropical style into your destination wedding doesn’t have to mean décor made up of seashells and shades of blue. For this photoshoot, our talented vendor team was inspired by fun patterns, tropical vibes and their coastal location. The Malibu, California setting is made modern with edgy black glassware and geometric details. Touches of tropical are introduced with creative catering and florals comprised of palm fronds and protea. A natural wood table and chairs are a nod to the rural, coastal landscape. This shoot is a perfect marriage between modern trends and tropical staples. Our groom, in a tux by The Grunion Run, only has eyes for his bride, while she can’t keep her eyes off her modern, tropical bouquet by Flower Duet. She’s lovely with hair and makeup by Mobile Bridal Salon, “Fringed Crescent Earrings” by Noonday Collection, the “Margot” veil by Elisha Caplan and in the “Kimberly Long” dress by Joanna August. The image described is shown above.
