Iron and Velvet Romantic Steampunk Wedding

Distressed Vintage Bride and Bridesmaid Styling | Erin Johnson Photography | Iron and Velvet Romantic Steampunk WeddingIntricate details abound in this incredibly romantic steampunk wedding shoot from Erin Johnson Photography at the industrial cathedral that is Aria! This fantastically talented duo has been on the blog before to similarly beautiful effect, and this shoot follows wonderfully in that legacy. On Solid Ground Vintage Rentals and Quinn & Berkley put together a crew of talented Minneapolis locals for a shoot that revels in the gorgeous steampunk juxtaposition of luxe vintage textures and intricately wrought iron. Aria could not have been a more ideally suited setting for their goal, with its soaring walls of exposed brick, hung with the classically glam sparkle of crystal chandeliers.

On Solid Ground crafted a number of perfectly styled vignettes to communicate their vision for this shoot, each one adding to the story told by this shoot. Each one features that signature blend of feminine and masculine details, from the rich gold velvet of the vintage furniture paired with antique trunks bound in cold iron. Lush arrangements by the legendary floral designer Munster Rose incorporate delicate blooms with tiny metal gears and blown glass Edison bulbs. The vintage table surrounded by mismatched chairs was elaborately set underneath clusters of crystal chandeliers, with tiny bottles of whiskey and skeleton keys at each place setting. Bear Fox Chalk created custom made chalkboard pieces to accent the ceremony and dessert table, laden with treats by Salty Tart and accented with Paperista‘s beautiful stationery suite.

No detail escaped this team’s notice, including the styling! Local playhouse Festival Theatre loaned a perfectly distressed vintage gown for the bride, along with a tulle skirt and corset for the bridesmaid. Vests from Hammer-Made and vintage top hats created the perfect gentlemen’s style for the groom and groomsman – along with one very dapper dog, and vintage goggles and opera glasses completed the look.
