Mixed Media Tropical Wedding Inspiration (in an Empty Swimming Pool!)

It's time to mix things up! Literally. Trending in the wedding world right now is the concept of mixing media (or materials) together for a contemporary chic look. Think wood and metal, and boom, you've got the idea. Inspired by the dramatic and modern aesthetic, this creative team took things to the next level with their photo shoot space because they made it happen in an empty swimming pool at the Village Beach Club in the Outer Banks! Yes, a swimming pool, and it's breathtakingly rad.

In a black and white color palette with pops of silver and eggplant purple, Kristi Midgette Photography captured details like acrylic save the dates, an ombré dip-dye black tulle wedding skirt, and a hand-lettered groom's t-shirt. The tropical vibe is a unique twist on typical beachfront wedding ideas, and Heart of Harlow coordinated everything to make sure the fun and funky style came through the portraits and details.
