Planning


If you're a bride seeking inspiration for a garden chic wedding that is timeless, look no further! This magical, fairytale-inspired wedding styled shoot took place in Miami, Florida on the grounds of the Villa Woodbine. Vanessa Hayward of Vanessa Hayward Events along with a talented team of vendors, came together to make this styled shoot a success! 

Our favorite detail? The bride's stunning off-the shoulder gown from Bridal by Marly, and the use of fruit throughout the tablescape for a unique, tropical twist. Check out more of the details from this styled shoot beautifully captured by one of our amazing wedding pro advertisers, Kareem Virgo

Shoot location: Villa Woodbine located in Miami, FL 

Shoot theme/motif/inspiration: Fruit and florals; I wanted to show couples that love both how to incorporate them into their design. It was also to showcase how to use fruit instead of flowers for decor.  

Color combinations: Bright colors with tropical greenery.



Linens: A farm table was used to bring out the natural wood elements.

Centerpiece Description: Florals and fruit runner. 

Place Settings: Tropical stationery with gold accents.

Stationery: Modern and clean white paper with pops of tropical graphics to match the theme of the shoot. 

Please share unique details from your shoot: The most unique detail would be the venue. South Florida has beautiful trees and with the tropical vibes, the Villa Woodbine was perfect. The cake was very modern with fruit accents. Also we used natural lighting and once it got dark used tree lighting. 


We're are in love with this gorgeous tropical wedding inspiration! Here's some behind the scenes footage from the shoot to feast your eyes on, and be inspired. The footage was captured by another one of our amazing wedding and event pro advertisers; Bridges Cinema
