A Tropical Summer Wedding

Atlanta Wedding Extravaganza brought together a marvelous team of wedding professionals to create a bright wedding fantasy inspired by tropical summer fruits and flavors. 

From ethereal gowns to the citrus-studded cake, from the whimsical tablescape to the lush florals and green setting, you’ll be inspired by this dream team’s vision brought to life!

The Vision

A striking couple get married at a beautiful outdoor venue, inspired by the colors and tastes of summer. Our mood board is the essence of summer… see it come to life!

The Cake

Almost to pretty to cut, this citrus-decorated confection captures attention with its fresh design and elegant layers. Cakes by Anna creates custom designs for any style wedding.

The Photographer

Andrea De Anda Photography captured the spirit of the summer season in these images that reflect a kaleidoscope of bright colors framing a stunning bride and handsome groom. With her expertise behind the camera, the vivid color palette becomes a strong character in this wedding story: rich oranges, playful yellows, and refreshing aqua blues.

The Specialty Rentals

Wonder Soiree bubbled over with inspiration as their tap truck and vintage telephone booth, festooned with balloons and dried fruit garlands presented the most captivating backdrops for memorable photos. And how much fun would they be for guests??

The Florals

Urban Blooms Atlanta created the vision and color palette for our tropical wedding theme and made the outdoor space bloom with vibrant, full arrangements and bouquets. Sourcing the freshest and most vibrant peonies, roses, ranunculus, and other flowers in shades of white, pink, orange, and green created a summery and inviting atmosphere reminiscent of a blooming garden. The design showcased the natural beauty of these flowers and demonstrated how they can elevate any table setting. Carefully dried fruit provided a rustic and slightly weathered appearance, adding a touch of organic charm to the overall aesthetic.

The bright colors of the flowers and fruits popped against the neutral backdrop, creating a visually stunning display, inviting and fresh while also elegantly casual.

The Dresses

Grace Loves Lace designs and makes luxurious and ethical wedding gowns. For our summer wedding, our bride wore two dresses and veil combinations that suited the setting and our bride’s confident personality. Stylist: Aushailene Ragin at Grace Loves Lace Atlanta 


Gown: Rosa

Veil: Fleur Veil


Gown: Summer

Veil: Pierlot veil

 The Signage

From welcome sign to escort and tabletop cards, Signs by SI carries the wedding palette and design elements through all printed décor. In acrylic, wood, PVC, vinyl or any material that matches your style, their custom inks create a high quality look.


The Venue


Ray’s on the River offered a natural canvas and stunning views that any creative team can build upon. With catering selections that displayed tropical colors and a focus on fresh seafood, Ray’s provided both great tastes and gorgeous views for this summer wedding soiree.



Babeland Bridal sets out to showcase every bride’s greatest features. For this setting, the focus was the eyes with makeup bridal and bright. The look featured smoky outer corners and strip lashes, with skin contoured and flawless to keep the eyes the center of attention. Brands used included: Charlotte Tilbury, Dior, Anastasia Beverly Hills, Estée Lauder, Urban Decay, Haus Labs, Tarte, and MAC. For the bride’s hair, the look was designed to appear effortless and keep her cool with an updo made to withstand summer heat and humidity.

Photography note: If the photographer wants you to touch foreheads for an intimate romantic shot, get close enough to make it look real, but don’t touch! Makeup can easily transfer and smudge, especially in the warm summer months.




The Rental Place showcased a variety of unique rental pieces along with their versatility! Tabletop items like China and glassware, crossback chairs, and vibrant linens build to help tell the story of the wedding day. The team used the bright color palette liberally, selecting from their wide variety of linen and tabletop colors. The Gold Glam Screen decorated with festive fruits became a beautiful backdrop and focal point for this wedding design.


The work of many exceptional Atlanta Wedding Extravaganza vendors went into making this summer dream a gorgeous reality.
