Whimsically Tropical and Beach Chic Wedding Ideas

What a tropical treat! We are so in love with the look and feel of this beach chic wedding inspiration with a real life super adorable couple at the heart of it! The fabulous California wedding inspiration was beautifully photographed by Cari Courtright Photography at the Dream Inn, which you can see more of in our full gallery. This little slice of paradise was organized and fabulously pulled together by Ryanne Steele and Katie Hillenga, so keep scrolling to find more to love!

From Cari Courtright Photography 

Trying to evoke the feeling of summer afternoons spent beachside in the California sun, this styled shoot at Santa Cruz’s Dream Inn, showcases an effortless romantic tropical vibe. From ruffled tuxedo shirts, ice cream rose cocktails, bike rides and lush tropical florals, touches of vintage flare meet modern minimalism to create a truly inspirational “I do” kind of day with the cutest married couple (real couple) out there.
