Who says you have to have a huge wedding to make it amazing? Today we bring you some inspiration for an intimate wedding (tropical, nonetheless – be still our hearts!) that is bound to make your heart aflutter and inspire you for your own gorgeous affair. (hint – if you can’t have a tropical destination wedding, you can always bring the tropical to you – check out these florals!) We also love the marriage of tropical-meets-old-world-glamor that is in this shoot!
from the photographer and planner, Erin Traum: “Instead of the typical one to two hundred person blowout, couples have started looking towards crafting a more intimate wedding day experience. Often, this smaller guest count means a more carefully fashioned affair – a couple can pick and choose what to prioritize for one of the most important days of their lives. If a couple is passionate about a certain photographer’s work, this could mean booking them at a reduced rate for an elopement package; for a floral designer, this could mean simply needing a bouquet and centerpiece instead of multiple arrangements and accents to cover a large space. It also means that a fashion-forward bride can spend more of her budget on the dreamiest gown and accessories, whereas with a larger affair perhaps she wouldn’t be able to.
