Today I am thrilled to share some quirky 1980s Valentines Wedding inspiration with black and pink accents.
images were captured by Pink Light Images / Weirdo Weddings with the collaboration of a fabulous creative team.
Jen of Pink Light images says of the shoot…
We set up this wonderful styled 1980s valentines wedding inspiration shoot at Lizzy Gator in Pilot Point TX.
The venue sets a tone of whimsical fun with breathtakingly unique adornments, lighting, furniture, and structures perfect for that Wedding that doesn’t tick a box.
As we thought about inspiration I thought about Molly Ringwald and the amazing movie styling she went through in those cheesy, yet fabulous days!
Our real-life model couple were Blake and Courtney, and being that Courtney was a redhead, it presented us with a GREAT idea!
I took inspiration from the character / feel of the movie Pretty in Pink (which we all remember that prom dress), and also Betsey’s Wedding.
Elizabeth our stylist had the main idea for the Bride to be in pants, with a long wedding train and white hat, with her Groom complimenting her in a alternative black suit with matching black hat.
We even had the officiant with a darker styled version of Don Johnson in Miami Vice. ( 1980s Don had white jacket/shirt – ours had grey jacket/black shirt) but that was the look we hoped to achieve.
Following the nuptials we set up a sweetheart table in the venue interior with some desserts from Market Street Bakery.
The shoot was super fun and everything else was the icing on top as we put it together! We hope you find it inspiring!
