Ultra Modern Tropical Glam Wedding Shoot

Ultra Modern Tropical Glam Wedding Shoot

We love when we get an inside look at where wedding themes come from. And this wedding shoot from By Love Events & Design took the tropical drama of monstera leaves and the forever popular cocktail, Mojito's as the design jumping off point for this gorgeous day. Well sign us up for a round of  Ultimate Mojito's and let's sit back and enjoy the joy and beauty that they inspired.

From By Love Events & Design

Alongside the perfect team of local vendors, I was able to execute modern perfection within a historic gem, The Historic Post Office of Hampton Virginia. This gorgeous venue now delivers completely different memories, lying hidden amongst city buildings, the floor to ceiling windows provided the perfect lighting and backdrop for this refreshing summer wedding inspiration.  

Designing this sophisticated editorial was serious business for me as my styled shoot debut! My obsession with the drama of monstera leaves and the luxe feel of orchids was a perfect inspiration, leading me to daydreams of resort-style beverages, hence the name “The Ultimate Mojito”. 

We also had the pleasure of creating wedding dreams for our models, Kearsten and Zach, who happen to be husband and wife. In addition to the beauty of this shoot, we set the tone of a real wedding by an official "first look", a moment they missed out on at their wedding! If you love drama and “tropical vibes” as much as I do, you’re sure to enjoy the true beauty of this project.
