Staged in a former metal factory, this retro inspired tropical wedding photo shoot is full of amazing details that can be adapted to any summer soiree.

Keep an eye for all the pretty hand crafted bridal accessories and don’t forget to check out the super fun video at the end shot and edited by Valerie Barnes Film; using both digital and film to capture the retro vibe of the shoot.

This is one of my favorite shoots ever! When you put together a kick ass team like this, you can’t go wrong! You know what I always say, if you can’t go to the tropics, bring the tropics to you! I’ve been dying to do a modern take on a retro tropical vibe for a really long time. It’s one of those things that could easily go horribly wrong, which is always my favorite kind of project.
