Before we get into the last of the details from today’s featured affair, I wanted to say a HUGE thank you to Robert and Kathleen for sending this to us and of course, to Dagney and Michael for letting us share in the celebration. Together with Candice Dowling of Jubilee Events, the crew is giving us a window into such a special wedding, such a romantic story…
From Robert and Kathleen…All of it looked right at home in their location, an airport hanger at Oxford Airport. The room looked perfect – almost feeling like a WWII USO function – complete with many gentleman in uniform (many of the guests were fellow servicemen), which was even more appropriate being that Saturday was Armed Forces Day.
From Robert, Kathleen and Candice…When Dagney & Michael took to the floor for their first dance, the look was complete. They they were – a classic couple in a setting so perfect it seemed like the creation of a Hollywood producer. The couple hired a classic 7 piece swing band to play music from the big band era. Their first dance was the Etta James classic, At Last, sung by their very dear friend Ana. The band provided amazing music all night long and gave a great rendition of Tuxedo Junction that had all their guests up and dancing!
A few extra details…The guestbook was a wooden propeller, handmade by local artisan. The placecards were actually boarding passes that the bride’s mother got from an airline. The table numbers featured “gate 1,” etc. All of the waitstaff wore wing pins from Continental Airlines.
OH and that amazing dress…it’s Maggie Sottero!
