The entire aesthetic of our hangar wedding was designed around the black diamond ring (my ‘dream ring’) that Jeff proposed to me with. Before the ceremony we had photographs taken with our children at an abandoned asylum. And we married at a local helicopter hangar under an enormous full moon designed by a local lighting and production company! Guests were asked to dress in black, which complimented the gothic décor and blended people and mood.
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 – their own vehicles attended the wedding as well, parked right next to the DJ and the band!
Taelor (aka Red) and Julian met through their love of vehicles and are members of a low riding truck club called No Regrets that travels across the country. In true No Regrets fashion, they are one big family, and the members of the group came from all parts of the country to see these two get married. Red lives, eats, sleeps, and breathes vintage and all things pin-up while Julian would wear red plaid every day of the week if you let him. Getting married at the historical Packard Proving Grounds really showcased their love for history and vehicles.
Every day is Throwback Thursday when it comes to retro weddings with vintage-inspired details. From the 1920s all the way to the 1980s (where’s our ’90s wedding?!), we’re loving this retro wedding style. Here are some of our very favorite retro bridesmaids, 1940s elopements, birdcage veils, pillbox hats, polka dots, and classic cars.
Vintage-loving couples: this is the wedding for YOU! A $50 fabulous vintage dress, an entire wedding party looking straight out of the ’50s, and a VINTAGE CAR PARADE… get your eyeballs on this one, we’re serious. Don’t miss the surprise gift from the bride’s parents, too. It’s so appropriate.
Rich jewel tones, a lush theater setting, popcorn favors/programs, and champagne everywhere — this fanciful wedding is making us jones for a New Year’s party! Add in the classic car, amazing reception setup, and midday getaway to one of the couple’s favorite places, and you’ve got FUN.
