Tropical inspired celebrations are on fire right now, no doubt about it — and you’ll hear no complaints from us. Today’s styled shoot from Virginia Ashley Photography, Alyson Taylor Events, and The Proper Petal helps illustrate that you don’t have to live in a tropical climate to get the lush look, but rather focus on some key details to mentally transport your guests to a faraway land. Let’s take a peek!

From the photographer, Virginia Ashley Photography: When planning this styled shoot, we wanted to do something fresh and fun! I love the idea of a tropical wedding. And this way, if you can’t have a destination wedding at a tropical location, you can bring the tropical vibes to your wedding!

The ceremony site and the bar inspiration were interchangeable. Good for a budget-friendly idea and getting two uses out of the florals! I love how the tropical and modern elements blended together so well — the white industrial walls with the beach-y vibe was so fun. We also brought a new twist to the bridesmaid’s outfit: a fun jumpsuit with a floral hoop instead of a bouquet! :)
