Let's face it. Real weddings are the best source of wedding inspiration for brides-to-be...But styled shoots have come a long way. They're more fun, more inspirational, and certainly more creative than ever. The styled shoot we're sharing with you today displays the cutest "fake" couple, some really cool 80's inspiration, and lots of fun. North Carolina event planner, Carla Eustache of Style Perfect Events put this shoot together and brought in some awesome North Carolina vendors. And the lovely photos are by our friends over at The Beautiful Mess. Hope you are inspired!
From Carla Eustache - Event Stylist and Owner of Style Perfect Events
"The inspiration for the first look was my childhood. I'm an 80's baby that grew up in a big city. I love the bright and bold colors of the 80s, the fashion, 90s R&B and hip-hop and I wanted to show the fun, fabulous and even sophisticated feel that an event can take on when you channel your childhood."
