Our steampunk photo shoot was published and I am just posting it now....(I know, I know, you can give me heck later). You can view more images over at
where it was also one of the top ten blog posts for their 2012 year!
A close up detail shot of the bouquet which was created in a copper and pearl nest, with lace ruffle, purple velvet ribbon wrap, and stamped vintage keys.
I tried to incorporate a lot of steampunk details into my floral creations for this shoot which took place on the hottest day in May of 2012. It was absolutely sweltering and our poor models didn't complain once. Not once. I was trying to keep everyone hydrated including the flowers, but I was the only one who suffered from heat stroke that day! I didn't know you could drink too much water and flush all the electrolytes out of your system!!
I incorporated copper, gears, keys, clocks, and peacock feathers into the designs. This is a little chapeau I made for the bride.
Provided all the lovely paper works.
Styled the shoot with vintage decor.
Created this incredible cake.
I created this garland on the vintage typewriter. I can't even begin to tell you how heavy this typewriter was...I could hardly lift it! It must have been seventy pounds!
This I can say with complete surety is my most favourite boutonniere I have EVER created.
Last but not least our amazing, tireless photographer who captured all of these incredible images and who made this shoot possible for all of us.
The beautiful venue.
A close up detail of the bouquet with keys, gears, a tiny bird cage and copper details. I really love purple with chartreuse. All of the iris were from the Bella Fiore gardens.
I would like to thank everyone who worked on this shoot what an experience! I now know how to prevent heat exhaustion ;)
