Destination In The City Wedding Styled Shoot

Exotic. Elegant. Bold. And colorful. With destination weddings on the rise, Leigh Events wanted to create a “Tropical Destination in The City” style shoot for potential couples that hate the idea of leaving behind family and friends on their special day, but love the idea of creating a tropical paradise. This modern and luxurious design brings the beach to you by using bold fuchsias, oranges, yellows and reds accompanied by lush greenery and pale rose gold accents. The abundance of natural elements paired with the bold color palette gives brides and grooms a sense of a Hawaiian Jungle (minus the expensive plane ticket). Featuring two gorgeous bridal looks, whimsical drapery, a watercolor floor decal, rich centerpieces and an exquisitely lit space all made for the ideal replication of a glamorous tropical setting. Check out this paradise styled shoot captured by Samantha Clarke Photography at the Artscape Youngplace in Toronto, Canada.
