Vintage Steampunk Wedding

I found this awesome Steampunk inspired wedding shot by Tinywater Photography. If you haven't heard of Steampunk, you're not alone, I wasn't completely familiar with it either until now. It's a really fun period of literary history introduced in the 80's and 90's as a sub-genre of science fiction literature. Steampunk involves an era or world where steam power is still widely used—usually the 19th century and oftenvVictorian era Britain—that incorporates prominent elements of either science fiction or fantasy. Many fans are now bringing back the fashion and style of the period in their everyday lives and especially in their unique weddings. Here are some images of a wedding shot in San Francisco:

I love the vintage style tux that the groom is wearing with the Steampunk accessories provided by Gentleman's Emporium of San Jose.

These mustaches are so fun and playful. They add interaction and character for your guests.

The custom printed Wanted poster is awesome. It's a great detail not to be missed that really ties in the elements of the theme from that genre.

This felt bouquet was made by the bride. Very simple and yet very beautiful.

This one of my favorite images from the wedding. The bride and groom provided masquerade masks for their guests to wear at the reception. Interaction is key here! Never leave your guests bored!

 Tinywater Photography did an amazing job photographing this event. The style and poses of the couple is perfect! It's very unique and definitely gives an edgy feeling that represents not only the uniqueness of the wedding but the individuality of the couple, which is very important to retain at a wedding.
