A Patriotic Airplane Hangar Wedding: Janice + Tom

When Janice + Tom talked about their wedding they both decided they really wanted it to be a reflection of them and their interests. After a long discussion, Tom jokingly mentioned his only wish for their wedding was that there was a giant American flag. :) Well, Janice loved it and the whole thing exploded from there. Since Tom is going to school for aviation mechanics and they both love all things vintage, they knew as soon as they visited the Planes of Fame Museum (with vintage planes and an old airplane hangar) that it was the perfect location! I love the patriotic feel to their whole day and Janice’s red shoes! Thanks so much to Brady Puryear for sending this one my way and congrats to Janice + Tom!A

Favorite Memory of the day? I would have to say that my favorite memory was the actual ceremony itself. Our pastor did a wonderful job at telling our story as well as emphasizing the importance of both the decision we were making and our need for Christ in our union.

The jam jar favors were made by the couple and their family + friends helped with the flowers. Janice’s talented sister designed all the signs, invites + stickers on jars while their aunt made the cake. Super talented family here! :)

Any advice for brides planning now?

Something Tom really wanted was that all our guests had a good time at our wedding. Very often guests are left to wait a long time with nothing to do. So we made sure our guests had games to play while waiting, as well as docents to lead tours of the museum while we were out taking pictures and what not. So I guess what I’m saying is, make sure you do not forget about your guests. I feel it can be so easy to do when getting caught up in the other millions of things that are involved in planning a wedding. :)
