MODERN TROPICAL WEDDING INSPIRATION AT THE MODERN, LONG BEACH

Cute wedding couple in front of modern tropical wedding arch with acrylic accents
 
In 2017 I decided to create the work I wanted to be doing.

So I asked my friend Renee of Moxie Bright Events if she’d like to collaborate on a minimal, modern, and elegant re-imagining of the “greenery” trend taking over the interwebs
(all. that. garland.) and she came on board.

The rest is history. And hard work. And talented collaborators. And lots and lots of tropical greenery, with nary a garland in sight! πŸ™‚

Enough rambling though, check out all the modern, minimal + tropical magic we created at The Modern in Long Beach:
 
A modern tropical tablescape with tall centerpieces, and custom acrylic place cards.
 
While these elevated centerpieces are black-tie ready, the acrylic escort cards I designed (with calligraphy by Chasing Linen) add a playful element to the table.

We incorporated acrylic details + simple greenery throughout- in this beautiful invitation from Happily Ever Etched
 
Modern, minimal, and tropical wedding table inspiration.
 
You’ll also see acrylic details in the table number, and later, the ceremony design.
 
A tropical bridal bouquet and tiny pineapple boutonniere.
 
Texture and tiny details FTW.
 
Acrylic "Find your Seat" Sign with Monstera Leaf.
 
Tropical wedding desserts- gold leafed donuts.
 
These donuts from Mwokaji Cakery are almost too pretty to eat. Almost. πŸ˜‰

And a closer look at those escort cards. I created three different leaf styles, but the mini monsteras are definitely my fave!

So simple, so perfect.
 
Modern, minimal, tropical wedding ceremony arch with monstera, banana leaves, elephant ear, and ghost chairs.
 
I still love this ceremony design so much, from the simple gold pipe arch, to the giant tropical leaves, (no floral foam heeeeey) to the always fabulous Ghost Chairs.

Delicious tropical wedding desserts.
 
And a few more delicious sweets!
 
Real talk: I’ve done at least 3 real weddings as a direct result of this shoot, for which I’m super grateful. So if there’s something you want to start doing (or get paid to do) hurry up and get started! And if you just want to hire me to bring ALL the giant tropical leaves your direction, get in touch right here!
