First up, Kristy and Carol actually married almost exactly a year ago, so, um, consider this post an anniversary celebration. :)
Their bouquets, decorated with vintage jewelry and bits:
The guest book and their Maids of Honor:
(Are you swooning yet?)
And check out the guest gifts!
I LOVE the soap bottles with copper loops! Such an elegant upgrade from those little plastic bottles!
Ok, I've made you guys wait long enough: here's the STUNNING couple (that's Kristy's in purple, Carol in blue) with their oh-so-dapper parents!
You guys win Best Dressed Wedding Party, hands down. LOVE.
Next up is Arnora and David, who were married in a railway museum. (YESSSS.)
Her dress was custom made by Pendragon Costumes, and was inspired by this sketch she found on DeviantArt (and which the artist Britt was kind enough to let her use):
If John and I ever get serious about our wedding re-do, this dress is going on the list!
Oh! And you might recognize the wedding party boutonnieres:
Yep, I did a total Happy Dance when I saw Arnora was inspired by my Steampunk Medal!
Not only that, but she made one for every. single. guest. WOW.
Etsy, and then painted gold. Such a great touch!
Rain forced Arnora & David's ceremony inside off the train platform, but here's a really cool part of the ceremony:
"The unity bit used an oil and vinegar container with us each pouring in our half as we said our vows. David's has brandy in it, mine is just blue water (no significance)."
So clever! And the glass has that perfect steampunky scientist feel to it.
After the ceremony everyone boarded the train for dinner:
Which Arnora decorated with Hot Air balloons made from my ornament tutorial!!
They wrapped up the night at an old inn/saloon next door, where "we drank, and laughed, and played board games the rest of the night because I hate dancing."
YES. This is the first time I've heard of another bride who doesn't dance. Why didn't *I* think of board games??
Thanks to all the brides and groom for sharing their big day with us! And happy Monday to everyone else!
