Jungle-themed Wedding Inspiration


Jungle themed wedding shoot

We’ve already featured a lot of animal-loving couples and their delightful real-life zoo e-sessions & weddings on this blog. If you’re considering a zoo setting too, why not jazz up your decor with some jungle-themed styling complete with bold animal printed details and safari-inspired decor! Does that sound fun? Well I’ve got just the themed inspiration shoot for you!

Sent in by Tonya Malay Photography, Tonya shares that Kehrin Hassan with Jet Set Wed and Courtney Armen with the Naples Zoo at Caribbean Gardens in Naples, Florida organized this jungle themed styled shoot to promote the zoo for wedding events.

Kehrin Hassan, owner of Jet Set Wed is here to tell us about her concept for the jungle wedding motif:

The challenge we were given was to create a safari styled shoot in a glamorous way to inspire future brides that may consider the Caribbean Gardens for their wedding.  The floral designers at Lyfe of the Party were perfect for the job. By mixing rich colors that you would find in the safari like deep red’s and neutrals paired with patterns native to that region we were able to create a color palette that made you feel like you were in a luxurious camp-like setting.  Then we layered on some feathers, gold and crystal for a glamorous feel.

Styling the couple was a challenge that came together at the last minute.  Rolling up the cuffs of the groom’s Calvin Klien pant legs and adding a Ralph Lauren safari inspired hat really made the swanky look have a safari edge. The bride’s hair and makeup done by Gabbi of Faces by Frohmberg with Salon Tease was intended to give her a wild animal appeal.  The dress borrowed from For The Bride actually came with a lace overlay that we decided not to use in order to allow the metal Stella & Dot collar to be the focus point.  I knew I hit the jackpot when I stumbled across this couple at a bridal show only weeks before the shoot was scheduled. I couldn’t have asked for a better muse.
