You know a wedding is going to be good when the bride makes her surprise entrance on an airplane. You also know it's going to be good when it's planned by Desiree Spinner Events. You know it's going to be down right blog worthy when the bride is part of the Desiree Spinner Events team. Buckle up, this wedding is full of personality and style so you'll want to be sure and check out the gallery for all the lovely images by Hike Photography.

Working in the wedding industry while planning my own wedding has been such a fun experience, and I feel so lucky to have had Desiree and Sara alongside me to help with the day! My fiance is a youth pastor, and so we knew we wanted everyone from our church to be able to come to the wedding--the airfield seemed like a great place to put so many people! From there, my father and I came up with the idea of flying into the ceremony as my "entrance". We took off 45 minutes before the ceremony started, and circled Cape Cod until it was time for us to arrive. The landing was one of the most magical times of my entire life. Hike Photography captured the moment perfectly---the guests were not told about the surprise landing, and so the entire crowd jumped to their feet and began cheering the moment the plane touched the ground. It was such a cool moment to get out of the plane with my father, and immediately begin our walk down the isle. Sara from DSE hand-stamped all of the birdseed packets which we attached the the programs I designed, and after everyone had a chance to enjoy a snack from a signature DSE dessert table, everyone lined up for the big send off.

The wedding was filled with small, eccentric details---which is exactly how I wanted it. When one of our groomsmen's vests didn't arrive on time, we replaced it with the most ridiculous vest we could find...mickey mouse! The groomsmen played a bit of  a prank on Josh, pretending to throw the ring across the field when it came time for the exchange (the real ring was safe and sound in the best man's pocket!). All of the bridesmaids (and my "bridesman", Dave!) were invited to wear whatever shoes they felt most expressed their personality---and I was so thrilled to see everything from gold sparkly pumps to brown chuck taylor's on my wedding day! The reception took place in an antique auto museum, playing into the "planes, trains and automobiles" theme, which we carried throughout the wedding using stationery that my fiance and I designed.

From Desiree of Desiree Spinner Events: When Kaleigh got engaged last winter I could not have been be happier, not because I knew I would be helping, but because she has become like a little sister to me here at the DSE office. She works so hard for all our clients and I knew I wanted to work that hard for her with her wedding. The airfield was the perfect place for her HUGE guest list,and even more perfect is that her dad is a pilot for the Air Force and said he would fly her in on the wedding day. Kaleigh came up with the planes, trains and automobile theme for the wedding and her save the dates and invitations (all handmade by her) reflected the theme from a train ticket save the date, to an "airmail" invitation. Kelly Hike from Hike Photography was so amazing, she captured Kaleigh and Josh's love and laughter so perfectly I was so glad she was there. Sara and I designed a little tented area for the guests with dessert and cider to snack on while Kaleigh and Josh greeted every one after the wedding. We covered the poles in satin ribbon and hung paper flowers from the tops of the tent as well. Every one really came together for this amazing day from the florist to both the families, to make this wedding gorgeous for such a sweet couple. Sara and I hope that the day was magical for Josh and Kaleigh and we had a blast helping. xoxo Desiree and Sara"
