A Steampunk Wedding! I got to do a Steampunk Wedding! For those of you who are not hip to the “Steampunk” here is a definition from Wikipedia… what would I call it? A fantastical, Victoria Era Sci-fi fantasy lifestyle/role-playing funness with brilliant costumes, quirky folks, whimsy and amazingly creative funky folks.
meet Aelf and Michael… my silly, playful, loyal and brave couple
and her lovely ladies. The period inspired wardrobe was SO fantastic! Aelf’s life long friend Gywn made her wedding dress. What a precious gift.
Aelf and her beautiful daughter Rowan. Rowan and my son have been friends since 6th grade. It has been such a blessing witnessing this sweet kid turn into a lovely and talented young woman. And who da thunk, two 15 year olds would be a wedding planning referral source. Thank kids!
Michael and his Men…Reservoir Dogs Style!
and now it is time for some Steampunk Wedding Details!
I found this DIY Steampunk Bouquet on-line. Learn how to do it yourself HERE! (I know…I know… but there is a time and place for DIY and sometimes it is the best solution)
Well, she is the Tea Lady and He loves Legos… A truer romance is hard to find!
Can you say STEAMPUNKIN’… A lovely drive into the county to shop local farms, some power tools, three cans of metallic copper spray paint, resourceful basement hunting, odds & ends, plus some ingenuity can make for wonderful, one of a kind wedding decor. Oh, and don’t forget to stop by your local clock shop for parts…It ain’t Steampunk without the clock mechanisms!
This is my favorite photograph from the wedding. She is so beautiful.
Congratulations Aelf & Michael! I am so honored to have been a part of your most special day. Thank you for choosing me, for I learned a lot. Thank you for the challenge to both my design aesthetic and my craftiness. Your wedding day allowed me to grow and create art that I am profoundly proud of. But most of all, thank you for your surrounding glow of love. Your love… for each other, for your families, and the love you have for your friends…the family you have chosen.
