California Coastal Wedding Inspiration with a Tropical Twist
Even though the colder months have only recently arrived, we’re already wishing that we could take a break from the crisp air and escape to the sunny coast. Which is why today’s coastal wedding inspiration shoot, held in California at the Portofino Hotel, couldn’t have come at a better time. Forget the weather outside, and let this sunny styled shoot filled with tropical details warm you right up! We’re particularly loving the bride’s stunning look of a long sleeve lace gown featuring a scalloped neckline with a striking plunge by Oscar de la Renta, which is accessorized with a pair of statement earrings and a bouquet filled with ranunculus as well as monstera and banana leaves.
Lush leaves also added a tropical touch to the ceremony arch and the reception tables inside the hotel, which were set with wood chargers and cobalt blue ink spotted plates that mirrored the blue waters of the Pacific Ocean just off the shore of Redondo Beach. Also inspired by the beach were the use of shells as escort cards with hand lettering that put a personalized touch on each place setting. If you’ve got your sights set on a coastal or tropical wedding, this shoot, which was captured by Molly + Cohas plenty of Pin-worthy ideas that we can’t get enough of!
