I may be biased, but I think vintage glam weddings are always mesmerizing right down to the littlest sparkle. One of our LA Blue Label vendors, Heidi Ryder, sent over this gem of a wedding that took place at the Planes of Fame Museum – a huge hangar with planes from the 1940s. With a gorgeous venue as the foundation for their wedding vision, Justine and Stephen planned a 1940s vintage-inspired wedding with a crisp black and white palette.

From Heidi: Justine and Stephen planned a 40s themed wedding at the Planes of Fame Air Museum, which is full of beautiful vintage planes. As lovers of the era, and with Stephen’s love for WWII airplanes, the air museum was the perfect venue for their wedding celebration. Their grand entrance on a 40s era plane set the tone for a fun-filled party that every guest was sure to remember. They even learned a choreographed dance set to “Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy” by the Andrews Sisters and guests delighted in watching the pair do the fox trot and other fun 40s era dances. From start to finish, Justine and Stephen’s wedding day was unique and sentimental, as well as a great time for all involved.

    Absolutely Beautiful!!! I was wondering what time of year you had your beautiful wedding and if the smell of dairy country was a problem.
    Thank you! :)
