They may not be the biggest or most elaborate but these ice sculptures are geeky, beautiful and wedding day appropriate. Ice sculptures have become a popular staple at weddings, especially during the winter months, so ready your eyeballs for some amazing works of frozen art.
These incredible works of art are actually wedding cake toppers made by artist Tom Torrey owner of the Etsy shop Gammaraybots.
”My main goal for my sculptures is to make people smile. A box of yard sale candy tins and my love of science fiction were the perfect combination to obtain that goal. I love the feeling of holding my art after it is done. I derive satisfaction from creating something beautiful out of plain ugly objects. I started to create robot sculptures a few years ago. and i haven’t stopped yet.”

When I came across Fishee Designs Photo Booth I immediately fell in love with their 1960′s retro comic book booth featuring unique comic book props, superhero masks, super-girl wigs and comic signs on sticks. The booth’s vintage feel, which is felt throughout all the unique Fishee Designs photo booths, is contrasted with a bright yellow with white polka dot backdrop.

Add a little ice and snow to your winter wedding without breaking your budget with this simple diy project inspired by The White Witch of Narnia. All you need are a few supplies found at any local craft store to get started.
