Oh tropical wedding inspiration shoots – how I adore you! Creative, colorful, and bursting with warm summer feelings, this banana grove editorial from Jonathan Canlas embodies it all. With fantastic floral design & creative direction from Avery Solmssen of Green Honolulu and coordination by Nichole Weddings & Events, prepare yourself to go bananas for this inspiration shoot!
What amazes me most about this editorial (aside from the gold spray-painted bananas…those are epic) is that it manages to create such a cozy and intimate space outdoors. With a tropical leaf canopy creating the semblance of an indoor space, bistro lights, and a floral chandelier the entire reception set up is a dream. Every single detail in this inspiration shoot works perfectly with the natural, tropical beauty of the banana grove – it’s magical!
