Real Hermitage Foundation Wedding, Norfolk, VA: Kaelyn & James

I love this vintage wedding at Hermitage Foundation Museum & Garden.  The weather was perfect, the couple in love, and the images by Chelsea Diane Photography are dreamy!

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.
