Offbeat Couple: Heather and Ali
Date & Location: 11/12/2022, Simeone Automotive Museum in Philadelphia, PA
Attention offbeat racing fans! Please direct your attention to Erin of Kyle Michelle Weddings and Events, reporting from trackside in the City of Love.
Hello! I was the Wedding Planner for these 2 cool kids. They reached out to me for help with their “car-themed wedding” they wanted at an automotive museum in Pennsylvania!
Right away, I started devising some cool, classy ways to bring the car theme into their wedding. A custom podium for them to stand on…
The Philadelphia String Quartet playing instrumental during the ceremony, and of course, custom key chains as the Escort Board!
The Winner's Circle
Heather's dress has our hearts racing!
We're digging these hoop bouquets:
The groom's fly yellow attire
Erin: Everything about this wedding was unique, including the Ali's custom-made yellow suit from Saget's!
Monogrammed cuff = classy AF!
“We crossed the finish line” 😭🏁
UGH THE SWEETNESS ❤️ Note the lining of his jacket is even MORE cars!
Erin: Their own vehicles attended the wedding as well, parked right next to the DJ and the band!
The biggest challenge from our team was bringing the “car-themed wedding” to life while simultaneously making sure that the wedding was at the forefront of our design and flow in such an enormous space.
The museum itself was a challenge because, well, it's a museum, not a wedding venue! Editor's note: they nailed it!
Now for the Main Event! Ali takes the lead:
With Heather right behind…
It's gonna be close…
Love wins in a photo finish!
Time for the victory lap!
Time for cake and dancing!
We are loving the reflective checkered-flag dance floor:
The guests are vroom-vrooming the cars from the tables!
Erin: The couple's vehicles were still parked next to the dance floor, and the car alarms decided to go off in the middle of the reception! Editor's note: that's kinda perfect, honestly
The couple's story, from Heather: “Ali's little Mini Cooper ushered us to an unexpected “start line”. Little did we know that we would meet and share many adventures both on and off the race track!“
“It made sense for us to commemorate our relationship by “crossing the finish line” at the Simeone, surrounded by historic race cars as unique and special as our love.”
Erin, thank you for the delightful play-by-play of Heather and Ali's offbeat day!
