When photographers Cari Courtright + Jessica Rankin sent this tropical wedding editorial our way, they mentioned one major reason the rise of the tropical theme is just so, so neat: it allows you to have a destination wedding riiiight at home. That way, you can transport your guests to a super fun, relaxing setting and get all the perks of a local wedding too. Win-win!
