Thanks to two years of traveling while in a long distance relationship and the creativity of The Finer Things Event Planning, this adorable couple celebrated their special day in style with a travel themed wedding. All twenty three tables were named after cities they had traveled to together and even their save-the-dates and invites were custom made by Oscar and Emma Custom Design to look like boarding passes. Picture the Love captured their day to perfection and lucky for us, there’s an entire gallery full of images just waiting to be adored!
From Jennifer at The Finer Things Event Planning…Lyndsey and Eric are an amazing couple! Their destiny began with Lyndsey (from Ohio) had flown to California for a friend’s wedding… it was love at first sight when she met her Groom Eric in Cali. Just like a seen from a movie, Lyndsey was smittened by Navy Pilot, Eric. From that night on, Lyndsey and Eric spent nearly two years flying all over the United States to see each other as their love turned a first glance into their wedding. The travel inspired wedding began with custom save the dates and invitations that even look like boarding passes. Throughout the reception, special places where the couple had traveled were brought in. The food stations boasted foods from San Diego, Kansas City, and Virginia where the couple currently resides. Each guest received a wooden airplane from “E & L airlines” to escort them to their destination city. (all 23 guest tables were cities the bride and groom had visited together!) Post Cards from various cities were signed by all of the guest and placed into the couple’s luggage! One of my favorite touches was the special Southwest Airline drink stirs that adored the signature cocktail “The Married Mojito” The custom groom’s cake, an actual replica of the F18 Plane that the Groom proudly flys on many trips to Iraq. The couple was blessed to have many guest travel from several states to help them celebrate in style…
