Adrianna & Tim’s Victorian Steampunk Wedding
February 2, 2011
Adrianna & Tim’s wedding was inspired by the Victorian era. The wedding took place at
Woman’s Club of Evanston in Evanston, IL and the bride and groom wore custom outfits to fit the theme of their day.
The couple made their own centrepieces and created the artwork for the tables. “This was a very Do-It-Yourself type of wedding so a lot of things we either made or found ourselves,” explained the groom. “We got lucky with a few of the men’s suits by finding a formal wear store that was going out of business that had some older grey cutaway tuxedos that they were trying to get rid of.”
“Our family helped us in making the flags, we designed and painted the centerpieces which were actually science gear from
American Science and surplus
, created the flower arrangements and decorated the hall ourselves. Luckily the Women’s club was a nearly perfect setting without any decorating so we didn’t have to do much to get it perfect.”
A short and sweet post to start today off, but I think you’ll agree this wedding was worth a feature for the images alone. Aren’t they fabulous? I just love how the style of photography matches the Victorian theme of the day!
Love and thanks to photographer Robert for sharing this wonderful wedding with us today

Katie & Eric didn't have the wedding they'd originally planned, but when circumstances changed, so did their wedding. However being able to have the people there that meant a the most to them was more important than waiting for a big wedding. "When we got engaged last summer, we started to plan a big wedding for October 2013 that we could invite all of our friends and family to", began Katie. "A few months after we became engaged we found out that my Dad had liver cancer, and everything changed. The most important thing was to have our family members at the wedding, and have them all attend in comfort. With that in mind, we changed almost every aspect of the wedding and planned it in four months."

They homemade as much as possible and hired tipis that were put up in the walled gardens of their venue for the reception. They had a humanist ceremony which included personal readings by friends, one of which was inspired by quotes from Einstein, Darwin and other scientists and philosophers. Amy designed her own wedding dress and had it made by dressmaker Lynne Gregg. Her shoes were Irregular Choice and her accessories were all DIY.

Caroline & Connor's wedding had a distinctly Victorian/Steampunk vibe. As well as the bridal party, all the guests really got into the spirit and dressed up for the occasion in vintage dresses and attire which was practically much all put together by the amazing Trish Roush at House of Nines Design. Not only did she help out the guests with their outfits, but she dressed the bride and groom - including making those incredible hats!
