What three adjectives best describe your wedding? Vintage-inspired, Whimsical, and Romantic

What inspired your personal wedding style, and how did you incorporate your style and personalities into your big day? It was important for John and I to have a fun and unique wedding that reflected our own personalities. It was easy to come up with a vintage style airplane themed wedding as my husband, John, is a commercial pilot and we both love to travel. This became the starting point for our planning and it was relatively easy to come up with the ideas to follow suit. Our airline was called Air Gill (our last name) and our flight number was 10.9.11 (our wedding date). Luckily, I worked for a custom invitation and favor company called Smitten on Paper and with the help of Diana at Diana Chou Designs we were able to create personal touches. Our names on our invitation were custom written to look like air writing from a plane and our guests had to reserve their seats. Upon arrival our guests had to Check In at the table and were given boarding passes which served as their programs. One side listing the bridal party as the flight crew and the ceremony as the entertainment. The boarding pass also became a functional item as it listed the Gate Number to the table in which the guests would be sitting. On the table we provided our guest with an assortment of nuts labeled Nuts for You and with the help of our family and friends we made the table stands and the vintage flower hair clips that were attached to the menu. The flower clips were made in fawn, dark teal and ivory and represented what our guests had chosen to eat.

Looking back, what are the moments, decisions or memories that you love the most about your wedding? It was important to us that our guests had a good time so we started off by providing them with The Pop Shoppe, an assortment of refreshments before the ceremony. During the reception we hired a 5-piece band who sang the likes of Frank Sinatra and the musicians of that era. We also had a caricaturist come and draw black and white photos for our guests throughout the night. Our wonderful photographer, April, provided us a photo booth that allowed our guest to take pictures with props on a stick or write notes on a chalk board for us. As another treat for our guests was a dessert and candy bar, the Baggage Claim, with five delicious desserts and five candies to choose from. One of my bridesmaid is a wonderful artist and provided the chalk board.

Wedding color palette: Ivory, Yellow, Dark Teal and Fawn
