Flying High: Kelly and Curtis in Camarillo, CA

Curtis and Kelly have been friends since the third grade and became engaged after three years of dating. The couple wanted a DIY, vintage feel to their wedding, to reflect the sentimentality of their long-standing history combined with the quirkiness of their personalities. With a color palette of mint green, coral, marigold and grey against the industrial venue of an airport hangar, the celebration made for a perfect contrast of soft romance with an edge. The bride explains, “Curtis and I share a love of all things vintage, and the Camarillo Airport hangar houses vintage airplanes from World War II, which were used as part of our backdrop.”

The bride and groom exchange vows on the runway at The Commemorative Air Force Hangar.
