When you have a “garden meets the sea” theme presented to you, you jump for joy. I don’t know about you, but I literally swoon thinking about a tropical themed wedding in the gardens of North Carolina. You really get the best of both worlds when a talented group of North Carolina vendors band together at The Leaning Tree in Bailey, NC, to create modern Hawaiian garden wedding inspiration. Captured by Ariel Kaitlin Photography is a world coordinated and designed by Elizabeth’s Events, & Mint to Sell, that has a modern tropical feel set in a non-tropical local. Pretty pink hues with touches of yellow and cream just pop against the fresh green palm leaves and fern accents found throughout the décor. Tropical bouquets created by Alexis Kremer make a bold statement with tropical leaf backdrops, and even the cake created by Rachel Bailey has a little tropical flare with its fern embellishments. Geometric centerpieces, sea glass place cards and a game of pineapple lawn bowling adds just the right amount of whimsy to this “garden meets the sea”, modern Hawaiian garden wedding inspiration.
