Whimsical Wedding in an Airplane Hangar: Alex + Keith

bride and groom

I love wedding ceremonies in unique venues – and today’s ceremony + reception in a wedding hanger totally fits that bill! Alex + Keith had lots of handmade details for their lovely wedding including the bouquets, ceremony decor, reception decor and even the wedding cake. So many fun things to love about this sweet wedding. :) Big thanks to Love is a Big Deal for the photos and congrats to Alex + Keith!

For the bouquets, Alex used branches from her back yard and a friend made all the flowers with wire and vintage fabrics.

One of my favorite moments was right before I walked down the aisle. Standing outside the door in the freezing cold locking arms with my dad. We couldn't really even have a conversation because I was so nervous but his presence made everything so much more peaceful. Then another of my favorites was getting extreme tunnel vision as I walked down the aisle. When I think back on it the only clear thing I saw was Keith's face – and that's exactly how I want to remember it.
