Hidden Tropical Paradise Wedding Inspiration |Press Flowers Heaven

There’s nothing quite as refreshing as a hidden summer escape. With dappled tree-covered alcoves and the downright dreamiest boho design details, this is one wedding inspiration that will easily sweep you away. The team met up at The Holly Farm in Carmel Valley to build something truly unique, calling on pressed flowers, painted palm fronds, and more.

Be on the lookout for a lounge you’d never want to leave, a cozy reception table, and an alter one might call a true floral masterpiece. And just when you think you couldn’t get enough flowers, Willow and Plum will step in to prove you wrong!

Enough teasing—let’s have a look at all the details, beautifully co-designed and captured by Carol Oliva Photography!

Pressed flowers make their first appearance in the form of this romantic invitation suite.

Willow and Plum weaved painted dry palm fronds into floral arrangements throughout the day. We love this burst of coral pink in the bridal bouquet!

WOW! How stunning is that menu? Pressed petals + calligraphy by The Crafting Casa made for the perfect pairing.

For the ceremony, the team wanted to do something different by removing the aisle out creating a comfortable lounge for the guests.
