Tropical Wedding Inspiration for Summer Nuptials

With summer coming up, warm and tropical everything has been on photographer Melanie Loitz’s mind. Sharing a vision with fellow photographer, Adam Black, the two collaborated on this tropical wedding inspiration shoot. The Wild Willow studio made for a great location because of its versatility, and allowed the team to create an island paradise right here at home.

“The mood we were going for was laid back and chill, much like at the beach. Every little detail, down to the macrame on display and the macrame on the bouquet was perfect for the beach! We had a lot of swaying, a lot of sunlight, and a lot of playing the ukulele—basically everything you need for a perfect beach wedding!”

The groom actually played the ukulele so he was serenading his bride while Loitz was capturing some sweet moments from behind the camera. The bride and groom wore matching bracelets by @mytribebracelets and that added some more sweet detail.

“Everything was just dreamy at this shoot and it made me wish I had planned my wedding on the beach,” Loitz shares. Scroll on down to see some more of those wanderlust-inducing dreamy moments:
