Oh hey there! It’s been AWHILE. Over a year to be exact! There’s a lot of reasons why, and one of them was that I was in the process of building a new website with the help of EK Media, who did an incredible job! I’m so happy to share my new site with a wedding blog post for two of my most favorite people: Katie and John! Katie and John were wed just over a year ago in an incredible Cavanaugh Flight Museum wedding with the most amazing details you could ever dream up!
I‘ve known Katie most of her life. Her sister is my best friend from high school and I have spent a good portion of my own life in their living room, watching Animaniacs and Buffy the Vampire Slayer with them. We are those nerds. Thus, it was no surprise, when Katie became engaged, that I was going to be the person to photograph her wedding. One year later, a mere few days after their anniversary, I’m thrilled to FINALLY blog about it.
Katie’s Dad, Bob, has great style. He owns over 300 pairs of custom leather boots. He has a penchant for Hermes scarves. He likes suede driving shoes. He bought my best friend Kelly her first pair of Louboutin when she officially became a lawyer. He LOVES design. It is no shock to me that he took Katie and John’s flight museum wedding to a whole new level.
See, Katie and John LOVE travel and John LOVES planes. He, like most of my own family, works for Southwest Airlines. It only made sense (duh) that they would get married in the Cavanaugh Flight Museum. It made even more sense that the cocktail hour would be served from airline attendant bar carts and that seat assignments would be picked up from a gate agent and coordinate to airport codes on the tail of every plane on the tables. Clearly there should be lots and lots of maps and luggage. Obviously you need a themed cake. You most certainly need a themed photo booth. Can you even have an travel themed wedding if you DON’T send people home with toiletry gift bags?
Now, I normally don’t share a lot of details around these parts because I think that the human connection is so much more important and valuable – which is not to say that I don’t photograph details, because I do. They are an incredibly important part of your day that you spent a lot of time designing. But, in this case, I think they really reflect the incredible attention to detail that made Katie and John’s Cavanaugh Flight Museum wedding so incredibly amazing, fun, and delightfully surprising in every way.
Happy Anniversary Katie and John! I’m so thrilled to have been a part of your day and I’m overjoyed to introduce everyone to my new website by reliving your awesome day!
