My smile gets a little wider any time we get to share some special tropical inspo, and this styled shoot from Kat Willson, Filosophi Events, and Celsia Florist ticks all our boxes. While the Pacific Northwest may be known for darker hues and natural rocky beauty, this team of vendors chose to inject some serious fun, color, and tropical influence for a look that leaves us totally inspired.
From the event designer, Filosophi Events: With wedding season fast approaching, we wanted to put together an inspirational styled shoot that would emphasize the unexpected. We are located in the Pacific Northwest, which leads to many weddings embracing the natural beauty of this region and taking a decidedly rustic coastal forest feel. We wanted to show brides that they can mix it up and do whatever inspires them and suits their own personal taste.
We decided to take a warehouse style venue, the beautiful Settlement Building, and really have some fun, bringing in industrial and tropical elements to create a hip and stylish, elegant but unique atmosphere. We started with an organic palette of neutrals, green, and cream, added touches of gold for elegance and then pops of pink as an homage our favourite emerging trend, flamingos! We were so lucky to be working with an A-List team to bring this tropical loft wedding creative to life, and hope that this will inspire brides and grooms to be to follow their own heart stylistically, and create a mood that feels perfect to them, not dictated by the trends around them.
