Go wild at your reception with a location like the Oklahoma City Zoo, that gives you the dreamy feeling of a tropical paradise. This lush styled shoot by Darling Details Event Planning & Design is filled to the brim with palm leaves, punchy proteas and soft pastels for the ultimate modern take on tropical wedding inspo! Rainforest inspired florals by Bayly Blooms in muted hues of dusty orange, rose and peach are paired with vibrant greenery adorning the geometric gold altar by Runaway Belle Vintage Rentals – we’re obsessed! The florals continues onto the tablescape topped with natural hemp placemats, soft blush linens and vintage mint glassware from Mood Party Rentals and Plenty Mercantile, and into the model bride’s lush bouquet. Her mod lace sheath gown from Chantilly Couture looked stunning paired with boho curls and golden sunkissed makeup by AnnElyse Salon and Spa. Laurannae Baking Co. created a simple, textured-edge cake topped with proteas and greens for a little punch, and the scene was completed with a palm leaf printed invitation suite by Paper + More. Thanks to Kayley Haulmark Photography for capturing this modern design at the Oklahoma City Zoo‘s new event space, Sanctuary Asia, so beautifully! We just can’t get enough of this tropical utopia!

From the planner, Sasha LaBlanc from Darling Details Event Planning & Design: “The inspiration behind this shoot was to introduce a new approach to a tropic theme by replacing the usual bold, bright colors with muted, dreamy tones creating a soft, yet wild and romantic setting. Staging the head table in front of the Komodo Dragon Exhibit in the Sanctuary Asia venue highlighted the exotic element of being at the Zoo, without sacrificing the comfort and ease of being indoors.”
