What do you do when you’re dreaming of tropical weather wedding, but are a city dweller? Easy! You gather a fabulous team of wedding and event vendors and you create your own paradise—drawing inspiration from tropicals, but making it represent where you’re from. For this styled shoot, we could not have asked for a better and more inspiring group of people to work with to make a modern twist on the classic style of Hollywood/Palm Beach Regency. The shiny green Monstera and Palm leaves, lush flowers (Garden Roses, Ranunculus, Tulips and more!) and their bright pops of color, gold accents and, of course, the classic color scheme of blues and whites that chinoiserie bring, tied the look together to create the perfect “Palm Beach Regency meets Atlanta” style. Of course, we couldn’t help but to pay homage to our hometown of Atlanta through our addition of real peaches. This styled shoot was to die for and we hope it inspires you as much as it did us.
