Vibrantly Tropical Wedding Inspiration

Break out the palm frond fans because we have a massive case of tropical swoons! This colorful wedding inspiration shoot at the Virginia Zoo in Norfolk boasts a vivacious color palette of magenta, tangerine orange, and emerald green that beckons us into perfect summer wedding ideas.

Captured by Elizabeth Henson Photos and designed by Raise The Ruth Events, pincushion protea, orchids, and birds of paradise florals set the textural tone for a gorgeously humid (without the actual humidity!) celebration. With soft romantic makeup accentuated by a vibrant bridal flower crown and soft curls, shimmers of gold painted on a small tiered wedding cake, and monstera leaf plate decor, the rain forest vibe totally came alive through this whole wedding team's creative vision. For couples who live life radiantly and are looking to share their bold spirits with their wedding guests, this elegant tropical fĂȘte theme is just what you need to dish up some signature cocktails in coconuts and dance as newlyweds surrounded by the romantic light of fireflies and hazy moonlight.
