Steampunk Wedding Inspiration

Steampunk is sexy - there, I said it!  I love the juxtaposition of Victorian and industrial design, the melding of the past and the future!  It combines the masculine and feminine perfectly and for that reason, is perfect for a wedding style.

Here is what I came up with for a recent event for the Uniquely Yours Bridal Showcase!

The wood table, cherry dance floor, and zinc chairs are available from Distinctive Event Rentals.  The cake is from Patti Cakes.  Vintage china courtesy of  Sweetwater Cuisine.  The gold Victorian chair belongs to Dave Bell of Stage Right Lighting Weddings.  Dave and SRL also provided the truss and made the custom copper chandelier!  Gear place cards from RSVP Stationery.  The design, floral, vintage desk, and all other prop items were provided by Isha Foss Events!

Here are some of the details up close.

Holiday Gala | Glitz & Glam!

I love mixed metallics!  For our corporate client party at Virginia Museum of Contemporary Art we created a design of silver and gold sequins with acrylic - and feathers!

It all came together.

The caterer, Sweetwater Cuisine,  brought the heat with a portable wood-fired pizza oven.  And also brought the ice (created by Ice Art VA) in the form of an ice bar with vodka bar back - outstanding!

Thanksgiving: Fall Florals

For me Thanksgiving is about abundance.  An abundance of joy, gratitude, and of food!  And fall with its warm hues, is more about the abundance of the land and finding (foraging) what is available.

I accept the less showy blooms, and welcome them for their texture and interest.

Myself, and my fellow Chapel Designers present our interpretation of fall floral design.  I am true to my love of cool colors.

Blush, Champagne, Ivory, & Gold Wedding

Everyone knows that at Isha Foss Events, we love linens.  For this wedding at Princess Anne Country Club in Virginia Beach, we chose five different linens to create a cohesive romantic look to compliment the bride's vision and her blush wedding gown!

We created the chuppah with birch poles covered in ivy and other greens and accented with family lace and clusters of hydrangea, roses, and orchids.  Similar flowers were used in the centerpieces.

The lovely cake, by Patti Cakes, was blush with ivory dots!


I am looking forward to the professional wedding photos from Eleise Theuer Photography!
