Bring on the Monstera leaves! These tropical beauties pop against the venue’s white backdrop! The elements come together to create a super cool, and super stunning, modern tropical wedding that we are excited to share with you all. It features glitter and glass, blush and bold green, copper and gold—and somehow it all mixes beautifully. We bet, in part, due to the bride’s attention to detail. Below, she shares not only the amazing images from her dream day, but a bit of advice for brides who are at the beginning of the planning process…
From the bride:
When it comes to weddings, every girl dreams of the colors, flowers, and dress. I dreamed of seeing my husband stand at the end of the aisle and wait for me—that was also one of the most important moments in my life, seeing him in his good-looking suit with tears in his eyes. I did surprise him with the decorations, the flowers, the tables, and especially the dress that he did not have a chance to see until our First Look.
I loved everything about the decorations on my wedding day, from the center arch to the look of each table centerpiece. One thing that I especially loved about is the favor – a mint box that my cousin (also my bridesmaid) handmade for me; it has a design of the monstera leaf and a little saying, “Tri and Irene are mint to be.”
Tri and I were fortunate to have the LOVE and support from our family and friends. Their presence on that day means everything to us. Thank you to Ashley and Ariel who did a great job of capturing all the important moments on that day. I was fortunate to have amazing vendors who were so professional and creative, and I was so happy with the final decorations that everyone worked together to make come true.
Long before the wedding planning began, I already heard that it would be tiring and stressful, especially if you’re a detail oriented person like me. I was a third year pharmacy student who came to class every single day and planning my wedding on my own on the side. Yes, my husband had decided to let me pick out everything that I wanted (not sure if it’s a good thing?). Anyway, you can imagine the stress. I just wish that I had more time to do more research, so one of the most essential bits of advice I have is to start early. If you can already envision what you want for your big day, look for the wedding workbook spreadsheet (such as budget, timeline) and plan everything accordingly. A week prior your big day is the time that you truly want to relax and enjoy as much as you can, and on the special day, just breathe and be yourself. At the end of the big day, what you can remember is what matters the most.
