There is something about a tropical wedding that just feels so effortless, so carefree — even when all the details are thoughtfully planned and executed, like in this Hawaiian wedding inspiration and bridal portrait shoot. Even though it’s not set on the beach with a bold color scheme or covered in pineapples, we still feel that incredible Hawaiian charm coming through. A long lane of palm trees with Oahu’s mountains in the background, a warm sunset like only a tropical island can see, and a beautiful old plantation house create a truly effortless tropical feel.
Read on for more from the photographer, Christine Clark: “The setting for this inspiration shoot took place at Dillingham Ranch, nestled amongst the mountainous backdrop of Oahu’s north shore. Elegant in its perch, the ranch house provides a bit of old world charm amongst the tropical green of Hawaii. It feels like stepping into a piece of Hawaii’s yesteryear there. The impossible grace of Alexandra Grecco’s creations settled into the scene in a dreamy way, bringing an effortless sophistication and beauty. Bella Belle’s shoes from their newest line were ethereal pairings with the delicate gowns.
Our tablescape rested on a handmade table draped in gauze and florals by Passion Roots, providing a touch of soft color and rustic elegance to the affair. Later in the evening we ventured away from the ranch house, exploring a palm lined road – one of many charming settings on the vast property. With the background mountains and gentle light from the setting sun, it provided an ideal setting for a bridal session, and a perfect way to finish our lovely day of shooting.”
