A Grand Exhibition of Love & Electro-Science at Powerhouse Science Center
Amanda & Vick | September 13th
From the bride: We planned a Steampunk wedding mixed with Irish details and metal tones.
We chose the Powerhouse Science Center (page 80) because the industrial feel was perfect. The boiler room was just the right setting. And from our first contact, the staff was wonderful.
Instead of flowers, my daughter carried a hot air balloon. My husband wrote the entire ceremony with my younger brother officiating. Before Kevin started the ceremony, he had the crowd stand to indicate how long they had been married. It was a very heartfelt moment as everyone applauded each couple.
MOST MEMORABLE MOMENT
All our guests lined up on the bridge outside of the museum and tossed a pebble into the Animas River.
It was a very relaxed family reception (no seating arrangements). We incorporated an Irish well wishes pebble toss where guests toss a pebble into the water and makes wishes for the couples happiness and future. It was originally done seaside, but since we were right there on the river, we thought it would be fun.
