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!
