Are you loving our fairy tale-inspired shoots as much as we are?  Here comes a peek at our third styled shoot for this just released Winter/Spring 2017 issue of Real Weddings: “Rapunzel.”

And at first glance, you might say, how is this Rapunzel? If you look closely, you’ll see several braided elements, but we wanted to take the story beyond the traditional “Rapunzel” and add some fun steampunk influences to truly make this fairy tale our own. As our designer Shari Wise from Events by Wise says about the inspiration for this shoot:

“With our “Rapunzel”-influenced fairy tale theme, we wanted to make it elegant yet edgy. We wanted to illustrate using a style like steampunk in subtle ways can enhance a beautiful and elegant wedding.” —Shari Wise, Events by Wise

Yep, we couldn’t have said it better ourselves! So without further ado, we present our “Rapunzel” styled shoot! Enjoy!
