I’m so excited to share this absolutely stunning tropical beach wedding inspiration, shot on the rocky beaches of Makaha, Hawaii. The amazing Jenna Leigh Wedding Photography collaborated with some of the most talented vendors in Hawaii to create all the eye candy you are about to see. I can not stop gawking at all the details. First of all, it is tropical but not in a cheesy, tacky kind of way. Quite the contrary — these details are classic, elegant and rustic.
The invitations set the tone with some beautiful pineapple and floral water color detailing and gorgeous calligraphy. The bride looked absolutely stunning in a pretty floral headpiece and a bouquet consisting of one single protea surrounded by orchids and roses. And I’m totally obsessed with the three-tiered gold and pink cake. I could go on, but I’ll let Jenna tell us more about the inspiration behind this shoot:
Beautiful Hawaiian florals, pineapple decor, and an amazing gold and pink cake made this styled session unique and beautiful. First of all, we wanted to keep the shoot simple and rustic by using the gorgeous black rock as the dining table, which we felt was a unique touch. And the flowers are local which really showcases the beauty of local flowers as well.
I hope you enjoy this styled shoot and find some inspiration for your own tropical beach wedding!
