Steampunk Meets Kosher Club
The 'Steampunk Meets Kosher Club,' located on the grounds of a camp the bride loved as a girl. The event required a strictly kosher menu, and all foodstuffs had to be trucked, requiring a 10-hour drive.
The event team mixed themes to create a steampunk-burlesque-carnival look.
Here, the steampunk ceiling. Steampunk design elements included Edison wire pieces, distressed wood planks, vintage clocks and lanterns, metal tool boxes, oil cans and metal tubing.
Thanks to design direction from the bride and groom, the event team created a sexy burlesque area featuring mirrored platforms, mirrored candelabra, art deco serving pieces, Mae West memorabilia, boas and top hats.

At the rustic Latin Station, guests dined on a kosher version of sliced "tenderloin"--actually, the center of a prime rib roast.
