Steampunk DIY

Two ridiculously creative people meet and fall in love.  So what happens when they decide to get married?  Why, they have a ridiculously creative wedding, of course!  Jenny Leigh is a wardrobe technician on the Las Vegas strip.  Trevor is a lighting technician and has worked on some of the most famous broadway shows.  So, you can imagine that for their own wedding, these two were going to put their talent to good use.  Their photographers, Tara Morris & Ben Wight from Hitched Studios, break down all the details:

Their wedding was an explosion of DIY with a steampunk theme (playing on whimsy and electrical pursuits).  Jenny designed and created her dress which features a skull and crossbones lining.  The dress was designed to be disassembled as the sleeves detach and the blue flare at the bottom zips off.  She also created a shirt for Trevor out of the same fabric (in a western yoke detail).  Jenny also made her blue hat and the hats of all the bridesmaids. Lighting gels give Trevor’s goggles their red hue and his cufflinks were made out of electrical wiring pieces.  Trevor also custom-wired all of the reception lanterns.  Jenny created the bunting and over 1,000 paper cranes for table decor.

With so much raw talent displayed throughout the day, it’s easy to feel the love and fun at the heart of Jenny Leigh & Trevor’s wedding…
