Adrianna & Tim’s Victorian Steampunk Wedding

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

  1. holy sh*t. we’ve looked at the woman’s club of evanston…probably 10 different times and they’ve never had photos that made me feel it could be an AWESOME venue (we’re planning long-distance and have to rely on photos – BLAH), anyway, this wedding is badass…steampunk isn’t my personal style, but they definitely rocked it, they look beautiful and they made a venue i could have SWORN was only for little old ladies look completely rockstar!

  2. Have to say this is my favourite photography to date, Ah-may-zing.
    what a wonderful wedding this must have been so original and stylish, love it.

    women’s club of evanston? what a beautiful place. but, i thought that building was also the north american temple of the Baha’i faith; i went there maybe 10 years ago while in world religions class in college.

  4. The photos were mostly taken at the Baha’i Temple in Wilmette, IL. The actual wedding was at the Women’s Club (so the last 10 pictures are from the women’s club).
