Al fresco affairs have quite the hold on us and this elegant tropical wedding inspiration is no exception, captured by Nikk Nguyen Photo in moody documentary-style shots that feel so luxe and upscale. Austin wedding venue The Arlo served as a perfect white canvas to bring in bright, bold floral motifs that played out through this styled shoot.
From trendy modern garden party decor to a chic white wedding cake designed by the pro bakers at Feathers and Frosting, this tropical wedding inspiration was truly styled to the nines and so well suited to the couple it celebrated. A gorgeous bride modeled this bead-encrusted gown from Unbridaled that totally stole the show with its flattering trumpet silhouette and open-back design as she posed with her soon-to-be-groom. They made their way through each impeccably designed detail these Austin creatives brought to life, namely a fancy reception tablescape set with fluted glassware, dreamy neutral flatware and fun, iridescent silverware from Table Manners. It all comes together so elegantly in this outdoor wedding inspiration at The Arlo. Read on for a special note from the photographer behind it all, Nikk Nguyen Photo, on the vision behind this wedding editorial. Cheers!
From the photographer, Nikk Nguyen Photo: “For this wedding inspiration shoot, we settled on The Arlo – an amazing wedding venue in Austin. It was the perfect setting for the lush and modern garden party wedding that we wanted to do! The spare, modern design of this venue, with its blocky shapes and clean white color palette, was an amazing contrast to let REBEL FLORAL’s work really shine. On the lawn, we played with texture and color by creating the most stunning wedding floral installations using spray-painted foliage as well as natural pink blooms. Leaning into the contrast between modern industrial architecture and the organic feel of the flowers, the florist accentuated the feathery and fluffy textures here and created an asymmetrical arch to frame the ceremony site. The result was a dramatic and modern garden party wedding that felt elegant and exciting!”
