Being asked to photograph an event thrown by a society of event specialists is both exhilarating and daunting…and the Minnesota Star Awards is like the event industry’s prom. So lets just say it is always over the top and amazing. So lets just also say that I was really excited and a teensy bit nervous to be a part of it this year…and then I found out the theme was Steampunk and I was over the moon excited as this is my favorite aesthetic!
This year’s awards show took place at Heroic Productions, a creative versatile event space in Bloomington. The design team transformed the space into four rooms that individually focused on different aspects of steampunk, from vintage, to edgy, to romantic. All of the designs incorporated gears, metal, and quirky details…the essence of steampunk.
Indulge and Bloom did a lovely job with the floral design!
Fire dancers greeted guests as they arrived.
The awards ceremony had a couple entertainment breaks, which were fabulous!
After the ceremony more food came out, tribal drum beats could be heard in the after party room, and things became a wild ruckus!
And all of this is just the tip of the iceberg! Two things the Star Awards prove… 1) event professionals love to have a good time and 2) there is a LOT of talent in Minnesota! This party was so beautiful, creative, entertaining and over the top! Enjoy the sneak peek!
